    • thanks jk2054 - do you know any law i can quote (regarding timeframe) when sending the email as if i cant they'll probably just say no like the normal staff have done? thanks.
    • I lived there with her up until I gave notice. She took over the tenancy in her name. I had a letter from the council and a refund of the council tax for 1 month.    She took on the bills and tenancy and only paid the rent. No utility bills or council tax were paid once she took it over. She will continue to not pay bills in her new house which I'm now having to pay or will have to. I have looked online I believe the police and solicitors are going by the partner law to make me liable.   I have always paid my bills and ensured her half was paid then see how much free money is over.   She spends all her money on payday loans and rubbish then panics about the rent. I usually end up paying it or having to get her a loan.   Stupidly in my name but at the time it was because she was my partner. I even paid to move her and clean and decorate her old house so she got the deposit back. It cost me £3000 due to the mess she always leaves behind.

    • Just use the print option 'print to pdf' which will save a copy of email as pdf document on your device. If you lived at address as partner when the liability was not settled, then it would be Council Tax legislation they would use. This is designed to stop tenants or owners of a property resident in a property not to pay tax due, when the normal bill payee does not pay the liability due. If you want to know the exact legislation wording, suggest you search for it online, as the legislation is available to view online. If you did not live at address as partner at the time, there is no law they could use.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi all

 

This is my first post in this forum even though I have spent many hours browsing through the very informative posts since getting into this PDL mess! A lot of the info has definitely been very calming and reassuring after receiving a lot of the standard bullying tactics that some of these companies employ!!

 

Anyway.......to cut a ridiculously long story short, I have a few questions regarding a CCA request I made to Next Credit last week.

 

Basically I have had 3 previous loans with this PDL (all paid off). After the initial loan it is possible to apply for the next loan by SMS. First you send a text containing the word LOAN followed by your surname. The next text you send is for the loan amount.....and that's it. From sending the first text to the money being in your account takes less than 5 minutes (that seems like a very short time to do all the neccesary credit and affordability checks to me).

 

So since then I have missed the payment deadlines, had all the warning texts and emails from NC, been passed onto Northern Debt Recovery and now Marshall Hoares. I understand that all these companies are connected and their ridiculous charges are completely unjustifiable (Inital loan £400, now balance is at £1255).

 

Back to the CCA request. I had a response from someone at NC in the form of an email containing a copy of the terms and conditions of the original agreement and a screenshot of the breakdown of charges on the account.

The T&C's state a loan amount of £300 even though the loan was for £400. I also can't find any date on there except at the bottom which says 20/1/11 which is well over 12 months before I took this loan out! The bottom of the agreement also reads:

 

"Having entered your email address twice during the application process and submitted your application, you confirmed that you have read and agree to the terms of this Agreement."

 

(Oops, looks this this short story turned into a long one!)

So here are my questions:

1. Having only sent 2 text messages, one containing my surname during the application process, does that count as a signature? I never "double signed" anything regarding to this agreement.

 

2. What do you make of the mistakes in the agreement (the loan amount being wrong and the date being from over 12 months in the past)? It seems silly to me to send a legally binding document peppered with mistakes

 

3. Does this satisfy a CCA request? I'm pretty sure it doesn't but I wanted to be sure before I ask for it again.

 

4. Apart from complaining to the relevant authorities what should my next move be? Ignore it? Make token payments?

 

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated :-D

 

Cheers, Matt

They seem to be breaking OFT regulations in quite a few places. How did you enter your info twice, when you simply sent 2 text messages?

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Wow, thanks for the mega quick reply renegadeimp! Tell me about it. They have been contradicting themselves in most of the stuff they send me. Varying payment amounts, dates, referring to things that "you agreed to" when, in reality, I didn't.

Should I just thank them for the reply, point out the obvious errors and say that what they have sent me does not satisfy my request?

Well, you NEED to get an official complaint in about them as soon as you can. They have already been actioned by the OFT and had restrictions placed on them for exactly this type of thing.

 

Ask them for a copy of the full agreement that was supposedly signed.

 

As for the dates and amounts, personally i wouldnt mention anything until they try to take you to court. I can guarantee that they will send out more letters and pass it through their inhouse DCA's and you will get multiple different amounts. If you get any letter offering a reduction in a settlement, then you know for sure that their is definitely something wrong.

:-D OK that will be top priority for now then. I've had all the threatening letters and emails from all their inhouse DCA's. Apart from visiting my house theyve done pretty much all they can to bully me into paying. I'm not trying to avoid this debt but if it has to go to court to come to a workable repayment plan then so be it! I wonder if they've actually ever taken anyone to court themselves! So, until they get a real credit agreement to me with proof of how it was digitally signed I won't carry on trying to get a payment plan sorted. Thanks for the advice! I really needed a 2nd opinion on this bogus agreement they sent me

You NEED to send them the doorstep letter from the library on this site. They have no right at all to come to your house, and if they do, you can tell them in whatever way you like where to go. Remember, they have no legal rights at all. The collectors are on high commission, so they will say and do whatever they like to get that money.

 

Also as Sillygirl said, were you actually paid the second loan?

Hi sillygirl, thanks for your response. Tell a lie this is actually the 5th loan I have taken out. All previous loans, including this one, have been paid into my bank account (if that's what you mean?) and all but this last one have been paid off. As a matter of fact, I paid a lot of charges when I cleared my previous loan with them. I wasn't aware at the time that they can't do that so I just paid it. I guess I could claim back those charges? Maybe that's for another thread :???:

Yes, all loans I've had with these jokers have been paid into my account. But until they show me a proper credit agreement they can't enforce this debt....correct? It would be nice to get off the hook without paying them back a thing but I think that won't be happening. I just want a strong defence should they take me to court.

 

As for the doorstep visits. I will send that letter out tomorrow but should they turn up I'll get my camera phone out and start recording the whole thing. I don't think they'll like that! I've also been thinking about phoning them and recording the conversation. That way they can't just say whatever they want if they know I can use it as evidence in court. Would I have to tell them I'm recording the call?

It wont happen. If you received the money then you should pay it back. As long as you are in constant written communication with these morons and keep stating a repayment plan that you can afford every time you write, then they're out of luck.

 

If you go to court, you can easily submit a defence saying what has happened and they are breaking the regulations, and also show the judge that you are still trying to get a repayment plan accepted, and you can ask him to force the PDL to accept. However, 99% of the time it either doesnt go to court, or they try their hardest to settle out of it, if they see a defence is filed.

Hi all.

 

I did a CCA request to TFF a while ago. First they emailed me the terms and conditions relating to someone elses loan agreement (wrong dates, wrong loan amount, wrong reference). I emailed them stating that this did not satisfy my request and that I still require the actual agreement.

 

They have now sent me (by post) a similar agreement. This time the details are correct but the document is headed 'pre-contract credit information'. Does this count as a credit agreement? I'm pretty sure it doesn't but wanted to double check before I email them asking for the actual agreement again.

 

I have another question regarding the same account but will start another thread to avoid confusion.

 

A big thank you in advance to anyone who can shed light on this :-)

 

Matt

In turn, when you text you automatically agree to their T& Cs... Sorry but it's how the system works...

 

No worries though I've had problems with these chimps.

 

These monkeys won't take you to court. If they phone you just refuse Dpa or tell them your stance hasn't changed.

 

We could do with some help from you.
