    • Hi Everyone, hope you are all keeping well in this strange new era.   On the 17th Sept, my friend booked a delivery to send a parcel to the USA, a vintage sewing machine. The collection and delivery was booked through MyParcelDeliver.Com, and UPS was the chosen courier. They collected it about four days later.   He paid for additional insurance along with the transportation of the item, to the tune of £128.75.   He packaged the parcel very well, packed with bubble wrap and paper and also styrofoam so that the sewing machine was safe in the box. He placed some plastic wrap over this, and he then sealed the box with tape. He videoed this for the buyer, so she could see how well he had packed the item because they were both concerned about the package being well protected.   The item arrived in the USA a few days later. The buyer instantly notified my friend that the parcel packaging was damaged, showing stress from water and general mishandling, and the item was also damaged in various parts, mainly the casing and the base.   He complained to MyParcelDelivery.Com on the1st October, they responded with 'You need to contact UPS...', which he did and also the buyer contacted them and got a response on the 2nd October.   UPS informed the buyer they would like to come and take a look at the packaging and the item, and this is the last she heard from them, she has called them several times, and always they say someone will call tomorrow and no one calls. She called my friend to ask if he could call them too and chase them up, he is Italian, and though he speaks English generally well, he asked me to talk with them on his behalf because he felt they were not listening to him or that he was missing something.   I spoke with them on the 26th October, they said they had sent my friend an email about this, we checked all of his emails, junk/spam too. There is nothing in there, I asked them to resend it, but nothing has appeared despite them saying they have sent it, we know they have the correct email address because they sent a message on the 2nd confirming they are looking into the claim of a damaged package, they also said they were planning on calling the seller 'again' on the 27th, which of course never happened, which she confirmed with me on the evening of the 27th.   Now it would seem to me that MyParcelDelivery is trying to say it has nothing to do with them, despite the booking being made through them, UPS US are pretending they are doing something but have so far done nothing, and we have heard Zilch from UPS UK.   I would like, if possible, some guidance on how to go about getting this resolved because this is just not right, the agent/courier have had their money, but the seller and buyer have been the victims of poor service and damaged goods.   If anyone could point us in the right direction on how to tackle this and get some redress for this, then I would be most grateful.   Thanks and kind regards   Mr B                 pox.pdf

    • Hi. As you can probably presume by the time this has been posted, I am annoyed. Long story cut short is we bought a new build, got a professional snagging company to come in and make a list of things that needed doing and am now still in the process of liaising with painters / electricans, etc. There has been significant disruption with arranging to be in to help guide the various workmen, etc, let alone the complexities of Covid to deal with as well as having two small children. Tonight we were up until quite late having to prepare things for a painter to come tomorrow to fix all the awful painting and marks on walls / poor finishes, etc. This has (and has had over the last few weeks) had a knock on effect with being tired, work being affected, let alone sooooo much time wasted on discussing the various elements with the developer (who hasn't argued with any of the painting, poor electrics, etc that has to be done). My question is has anyone ever claimed redress for all the wasted hours that have to be spent on doing things like this because a developer rushed to get a house ready on time?

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hello could anyone shed some light on this please.I recieved a CCJ last year for a loan with natwest.Northampton county court set the repayments very high.I applied for re determination in my local court.My local court reduced it to what we are paying via Payplan.

Natwest then wanted a charging order,they finally got it in july,i defended it as best i could with good argument but the judge made his mind up as I walked in.In fact he new there solicitor,that was evident by the way they spoke to each other.To add he spoke to me like a peice of dirt.

Anyway i have only just recieved the final charging order paperwork an dont really understand it.

 

1. the debt is for a loan so interest was added to the loan on appliction.

2. we havent missed a payment , but judge didnt care.

3.there solicitors have had over £700 in costs during the ccj and charging order.

 

i have added in copies of the 2 ccj's and charging order.Could anyone help please.

Hi ,I admitted the claim,so got CCJ.Have been paying this on time every time.Just dont understand why charging order was granted and what the charging order letter ( copy on the first thread) means.Are we going to lose our home.

 

Advice says if you keep up with a ccj they wont get a CO, but they got one.Advice says that forced sale is rare and that the creditor just wants security,but whats stopping them going for the house and whats stopping the same horrible judge grsnting them a sale.At wits end

As you admitted the debt then you cannot apply to have the CCJ set aside.

 

A CO was granted as the CCJ was redetermined to a "forthwith" judgment allowing the Claimant to apply for a CO.

 

Is the debt in joint or sole names? Is you home owned jointly or on your own?

 

It is now technically possible for the Claimant to apply for an Order for Sale of your house but very, very unlikely unless there is a lot of equity in your home.

 

An OFS won't be granted if you are in negative equity or have young children living at the property etc.

In that case the CO will be registered against your property as an "Equitable Charge".

 

This debt will now need to be repaid if/when you sell your home.

 

There is not much more the Claimant can do now they have the CO although like I said they can still technically try and force the sale of your house in reality it won't happen.

The judgment was varied to a forthwith judgment, so the only way to comply with it is to pay the entire judgment in full. Obviously you haven't done this, so they were enabled to get a charging order. As mentioned, it is highly unlikely they will go for an order for sale, but for your own peace of mind you might consider applying to vary the judgment back to one payable by instalments as the only reason they wanted a forthwith judgment in the first place was to get the charging order which they now have. Alternatively, you can contact them and see if you can come to an arrangement to pay by instalments outside of the judgment.

Hi thanks for the replies,the 3rd scan I posted was for the revised sum which was the figure I could afford.Am i right in thinking that is now the figure i pay until the debt has gone or we sell our house.What options do we have,i dont really understand the situation.

I will tell it the way I think it is,could you correct me if ive got it wrong.

 

Natwest's solicitors sent us court papers wnating the full amount,we filled in the forms admitted the debt and enclosed our income etc.We got a reply / CCJ from northampton court for a vast monthly payment £600 +, we applied for it to be re-heard at our local court.This court reduced it to the figure we could afford( the payplan figure).

 

Then natwest went for an interim charging order,then eventually a final charging order.So from what I can understand we pay the CCJ and if we default on it they could go for a forced sale.

Could somebody just tell us in easy steps if i am right,or what we could do now.

Thats about the measure of it Andy but you should have defended the FCO as you was not in arrears with the installments or was you?

Ok I understand the situation as follows:

 

 

You admitted the debt so CCJ was issued.

 

Part of the original Order was that payments be made in instalments at a rate of £XXX.XX per month which you could not afford and so you requested a redetermination.

 

Redetermination granted on 27th October 2010 for payments to be made at the more affordable rate of £XX.XX per month.

 

The Claimant was not happy with the new amount and so applied to vary the judgment to "forthwith" (presumably with the intention of applying for a Charging Order).

 

The Court varied the Order to Forthwith on 2nd December 2010 with a term that no enforcement other than a Charging Order allowed so long as payments of £XX.XX are made.

 

Interim Charging Order granted on 7th April 2011.

 

Charging Order made final on 21st July 2011.

 

 

So unless you default on the Order dated 2nd December 2010 no Order For Sale can be applied for by the Claimant.

Hi andyathers

 

More or less in the same situation as yourself payin CCJ by installments for last 10 years never ONCE missed a payment and Defended my FCO to the hilt, no assignment document ever sent, quoted the law of properties act 1925 s36 & 196, then re opening of the original judgement in relation to the extortionate APR as it is a twelve year window, DCA had no Consumer Credit Licence when they first bought the CCJ AND collected on it for two years without a Consumer Credit Licence even though the OFT states it is illegal to do so, finally quoted Section 86(1) The County Courts Act 1984:

 

Where the court has made an order for payment of any sum of money by instalments, execution on the order shall not be issued until after default in payment of some instalment according to the order.

 

This was further considered in the case of Mercantile Credit V Ellis in The Court of Appeal 1987. It was found that the wording of the Charging Orders Act states quite clearly that no further action could be taken without a default in payment.

 

 

My case was presented Concisely,firm and to the point, but ALL fell on deaf ears, Do not want to be the bearer of doom and gloom but Like allot of people who use this site and end up in court, it seems it doesn't matter what the Law states its what the Judge decides that matters and as I was promptly told in my case I could appeal against the decisions but at what cost to myself, and although you know the Law is right is it really worth appealing and more cost to yourself only to be told the same thing yet again. Like you stated andyathers on a loser before you walk in the dam place (not a truer word spoken)

 

Now I know where the saying The Law Is An Ass comes from!

 

Don’t get me wrong allot of very good information and knowledgeable people who give very good advice on this site and quote laws that should be upheld in a court of law but unfortunately as most of us know that is not always the case, I spent nearly a year collating all my evidence from this site good , concise,and what the Law States to be true, but like I said when it went to court it meant nothing, very disheartening and demoralizing :-(

I know I was lucky, but I managed to get an instalment order in place days before the ICO was granted. Although only a few payments had been made, my DJ stated that following on from Mercantile Credit v Ellis an ICO would not be granted if payments up to date.

 

Conversely the DJ who sat in on my original case DID NOT KNOW THE LAW!!!!
