    • Thank you. If you look at the policy objectives outlined on page 3, I think that there is nothing there which indicates that a consumer is obliged to accept the Consumer Rights Act as an alternative to normal contractual remedies. The consumer rights act, in my view, operates to protect the consumer – and only the trader in a limited way in that it sets a time. For rejection of goods and receiving a complete refund. My understanding of the Act is that it works hand-in-hand with ordinary contract law and does not replace it. It simply clarifies certain remedies – but you can still avail yourself of all the normal remedies which exist in the common law of contract. If you bring a claim then frankly I don't see any point in particular referring to the 2015 Act. You have been supplied with a defective item – it amounts to a breach of warranty – especially because it is a non-fungible item and therefore it you are entitled to insist on damages to put you into the position that you would have been if the contract had been carried out correctly and without this breach. I don't see any difficulty in bringing this claim in a court, if necessary, as long as you have the quotations and the assessment of the dog that it does indeed have this dental problem. I've already said that when this dental problem became discernible is irrelevant in terms of an action against the breeder. It is relevant in terms of an action against Vets4Pets

    • @BankFodder Re the 'letter of claim' you're absolutely right, I'm sorry, that was a lazy question from me. I'm feeling the fatigue from the stress of this. I'll look it up.   In terms the comments I made about a replacement - I've read this document  (see link below) and it seemed to suggest that I'd need to prove that finding a suitable alternative would provide us with 'significant inconvenience', in order to legitimately refuse the refund. Happy to be corrected.   I know it's horrible to talk about replacements when thinking about living things, and as I said above we are keeping our puppy and committed to paying for the necessary treatment.   I was, however, trying to prove that a return and refund isn't an acceptable course of action for us. Hope this makes sense.   - https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/274834/bis-13-1360-consumer-rights-bill-supply-of-goods-impact-final.pdf  
    • Hi all, Can I quickly check something with yourselves. I've finally been able to pick up all the correspondence she's received and I have a question. There is no "Notification Of Default Fees Charged" letters. am I right in saying that where a Default Charge/Fee/Penalty has been applied they should also provide a notification of the this and not just have it on the statement?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hello there

 

I've got a CitiFinancial loan for about £5,000, with a ridiculous rate of interest, about 19.9% or something, off the top of my head. The repayments are about £150 per month and I've missed the past couple because I just can't afford them anymore, with rent, fuel getting to work, food, child, partner not working etc - general life!!

 

At the moment, my credit rating is poor due to ongoing disputes with organisations, and claims in process, so I can't get a loan with a better rate to consolidate this one.

 

Has anyone got an advice on what I should do??

 

Thanks in advance

 

Mr Fish

Wouldn't advise re-mortgaging to anyone, as I suspect most of the forum wouldn't (mainly through bad experience)

 

If your credit rating is very poor it would be a high interest rate to say the least, and why turn an unsecured loan into a secured one

 

I would never have re-mortgaged if I'd thought thngs through and knew what I know now regarding rights, consumer law etc

Hi Guys

 

Thanks for the advice.

 

I don't actually have a mortgage at all, so re-mortgaging wouldn't be an option anyhow...

 

However, if I did buy a property, I assume that the possibility to put my existing loan into a mortgage is possible?

 

Thanks

If this is the only debt you have then I suggest you offer Citi whatever you can afford from £1 per month.

They may tell you to naff off but they cannot make you pay more than you can afford, and they know if they take you to court the nno judge will order you to pay more than you can afford even if it is only £1 per month.

Sorry - I know this is from a while ago.

 

I sent a CCA request in the first instance and got the signed agreements back, so should I now write to them and tell them how much I can afford to pay?

 

Thanks in advance

Mr Fish

 

They may ask you for your income/expenditure to prove you can only pay x amount. I did it recently myself as they said they could not accept a reduced amount unless I provided this info, when I did provide it they accepted the lower payments

 

good luck :)

Just out of interest, is there any legislation that says that they can demand to know what your income/expenditure is?

Not sure, but I very much doubt it

 

I was a bit naive when I first started dealing with a DCA, they demanded payments I could not afford and said the only way I could get them to accept a lower payment was to provide these details. I just did it to get them off my case until I could get a CCA request out to them.

 

I just found it easier and it stopped them phoning me numerous times a day, when they realised I genuinely could not afford what they wanted.

Would it be worth checking for any charges on your account before making any repayment offers? If you have them, check back through your statments or send them an SAR. Could reduce the total owing and also buy you a little bit more time.

 

Just an idea :(

I am in the same boat with Citi. I sent them a SAR on 7th March since which time they have sent me information which is incomplete and each time I have had to write back to them. At this point it is still incomplete. For some reason they are avoiding giving me a balance but sent me a settlement figure instead. I am having to go back to them again. I can tell you there will be charges. £10.00 a month. I would do a SAR and see how you get on.

No, but if you wantthem to freeze interest and accept lower payments then it is obviously the only way you are going to prove to them that you cannot afford to pay the full amount. In this scenario they are not likely to go for CCJ either.

I'm also in a trickt situation with citi. I am paying £345.00 per month for the next 4 years. It's crippling me along with the mortgage/counciltax/cartax/gas/elec/phone/fuel etcetc. I can no longer pay this ammount, we need some good advice on how we can overcome this horrible situation. We cannot remortgage because we have poor credit. Please can somebody help???

Are there any charges included in the total you owe to them? If you think there are then send them a SAR and claim back the charges first

 

The best way to prove you cannot afford the monthly amount is to do an income/expenditure, they can't take what you don't have and so long as you are making token payments, no matter how small, it would go in your favour if it ever went to court

Contact CCCS, number is up near the top of this post, they will either contact the creditors for you or email you a self-help pack which is very informative and easy to complete, no way should you be paying more than you can afford. They are tricky customers though and in my other half's case where he is paying them £38 per month, we noticed they had suddenly started adding interest again, a cynic might think this was because we went after them for penalties and got a partial repayment, haven't gone any further because we have our hands full with Barclaycard but haven't finished with them yet! - they say its because the 6 month agreement had come to an end - however he told them that they are the only ones getting more than the pro rata agreement and now they have agreed to £34. per month.

alleycat, do you meen are there any late payment charges?? if so the answer is yes!! today i have requested the past 10 years loan agreements from them. I have perhaps had six or seven loans from them in the past ten years, each has been consolidated to a top-up loan.Imagine i had a loan for £5,000 over 5 years, after 2 years i borrow a further £2,000 I beleive that they have just deducted the ammount i have paid within the two years and added the rest on to the new loan without taking away the three years interest(if that makes sense)?? along with this they have always insisted that i took the ppi otherwise i would not get the loan..! I realy am struggling with citifinancial, I honestly cannot aford to pay these payments any longer. The thing is im a little worried as to what will happen if i dont. I might sound a wimp but anything like this i realy do panic!! please anybody can you reassure me?? thanks alleycat for the advice....

Have you had your agreement checked out with the Trading Standards Office. They have currently got mine. I am worried about them aswell. Whilst everything appears on the agreement I feel there is something I'm missing. Also, you can obtain an e

Personal Budget Sheet from the National Debtline Website. This is brilliant you input all your income and and expenditure and it works it out what is left for creditors on a pro-rata basis. There is a letter in General Debt Letters to send it to them with.

As the last post suggests...get the agreements checked out by Trading Standards, if you think there's something not quite right, it's best to know for sure.

 

As for the charges.....claim them back! You say you have requested the agreements from Citi, but have you sent them a full SAR? It will cost you £10 but you'll be able to claim for unfair charges, such as late payment charges

 

As I said about income/expenditure, it's a good way to prove what you can and cannot afford, and read the other posts...contact the national debtine or the CCCS.

 

You can reduce the amount you are paying now and try not to worry too much! Don't stop paying them altogether, but if all you can afford is a couple of quid a month, then that's what you should offer. A roof over your head and essentials should take priority, don't leave yourself short
