    • Hi All    Hoping for some advice if possible.  I will try to be as concise as I can so I will bullet point, hope this doesn't seem rude.    My Ford Focus 2.0 TDI Powershift 83k miles   *had a major service and an automatic gearbox oil change on Friday 4th October    * Saturday 5th October - had been out in-car driven 30-mile round trip with about 10 hours in between, when I got home the radio and dashboard wouldn't turn off as it usually does when you switch the ignition off and open the driver's door. Tried to switch the radio off manually no joy, after about half an hour it just went off on its own. Didn't think much more of it.   * All was well, travelled to work and back on Monday and Tuesday a 20-mile round trip each day   * Wednesday on the way home started the car and it made a funny noise so I tried to turn it off and it took me several attempts to switch it off.    I left it a couple of mins and switched it back on and all seemed well again. After about five mins of driving it came up with hill start assist unavailable, so I thought I would take it back to where it had been serviced. After about another 10 mins it went into limp home mode and came up with a message saying transmission not fully operating (or something like that).    * AA came out and plugged the computer in said that it was bringing up a fault on pretty much every system in the car but when he tried to get into the in-depth diagnostics it kept kicking him out.   The transmission message cleared and the aa offered to follow me to the garage which they did, the car drove ok again for about 15 mins then went back into limp home mode.    * Car has been at the garage since close of business Wednesday, I have rung for an update each day to be told there was nothing until today when I expressed a bit of frustration at this was rang back and told it is probably something to do with the clutch but not sure yet.   * Apparently they have a gearbox specialist in for a 2nd opinion today and should be able to get back to me tomorrow.    So my questions are:   1. Could a fault with the clutch cause all of the above problems? 2. If it is the clutch is it likely to do with the service/gearbox oil change as it was running PERFECTLY before this, I only had the gearbox oil change because I was advised to. As an aside I had to have a new gearbox put in while the car was under warranty as it malfunctioned.    I am honestly grateful for any advice, as I'm just feeling really fed up at this point and the garage are giving me the least possible info they can give me.    Thanks :-) 
    • Hi,   My friend was being bullied by a manager who kept saying that anonymous people were complaining about her, she is asian and the minority where she works, she raised concerns in her meeting that she felt it had something to do with her race and gets treated differently to the rest of her colleagues due to off the cuff comments previously made and was told by her manager that as a minority she has to prove herself more as a minority in life and thats unfortunately the way it is. Following on from this they’re were more anonymous complaints all revolving around her attitude when speaking to the anonymous individual(s), she then had a meeting with hr initiated by her managwe and expressed her concerns, no outcome was given as the hr person said it was informal and a week later she has been told that she is being made redundant, my question is there were no specific incidents mentioned and my friend is still confused exactly how this came about but suspects it’s her manager who has taken a disliking to her, is this lawful?
    • Thanks for advice . I have spoken to the ICO , and their opinion is that there “may “ be cause for complaint . In the first instance I should write to the hospital (CEO)citing GDPR, giving them 30 days to respond . If the response is not to my satisfaction , then back to the ICO to raise a formal complaint . The ICO also suggested copying in the GMC with the complaint , I feel at present that is one step too far , perhaps I will sit on that until I get a reply from the hospital.
    • Thanks ethel and stu007   Yes, we had the kerb double dropped so me and my partner can park off the road. Before , just had one, and idiot would park in middle of properties so couldn't fit two cars on road outside. Has been issued a good 3 or 4 PCNs for obstructing since done. Its the back of the car, sometimes as far as a wheel but has a long boot/bumper which hangs over, so its not fully over. Recently seems to be as far as can without getting a ticket.   CCTV - shall read up thanks. Oh also, when I say 5 CCTV, that is 4 on property (100% out of boundary) and 1 in car which is lit up all night.   Does this count as harassment? The initial start of this thread, about 6 threatening letters asking me to pay for vehicle damage or court (nothing came of this) The constant parking annoyance (going on a couple of years) The loud music, witnessed by Env heath officer but not quite loud enough for notice, so letters sent. Paint 'accidentally' spilled on road outside my property (because was parked over our drive at time) Letters about rubbish outside my own garage at rear of properties and the 4 screws attaching bamboo to his fence. Then reported me for fly tipping, didnt go anywhere as officer agreed wasn't causing an issue. I have since sorted the screws and bamboo and idiots fence is literally falling apart. Concreting over 1/4 of my grass in rear lane whilst doing own part. Stupid things like having a BBQ and the parasol sticking way over the fence into my garden. All very subtle and annoying things to cause issues, without quite breaking the law.   The council are aware and claim powerless as own properties and the police pretty much are not interested.   What can be done?    Cheers   E!

Hi there

 

Not sure if this is the right section to post in but here goes.

 

I've requested a copy of my CCA from lowells as they claim to have bought a previous debt of mine. they have sent a letter in response but, I am unable to post a link as I haven't made enough posts on this forum.

 

It says:

we are in receipt of your request for a copy of your credit agreement in accordance with section 78(1) of the consumer credit act 1974.

 

We are requesting a copy of the agreement from the original lender with whom you originally entered into the agreement together with statements.

 

Whilst we endevour to reply with the required information within the prescribed 12 day period under the consumer credit act you will appreciate this is dependent upon receipt of the information from the original creditor. We will advise you further if it will take longer than the prescribed period.

 

When lowell purchases a debt from a client we issue a letter of assignment to the customer which fulfils our legal obligations under the law of property act 1925. This letter was sent to you on the 23rd April 2010 and we enclose a copy for your perusal and retention. We would not normally issue a specific deed of assignment unless the matter had progressed to court action.

 

The copy of the letter that they claim to have previously sent was never received as, the address is my parents. Also the amount on it is the same then as it is now(surely they would have added costs over the course of 2 years??)

 

The first letter I received from them was when I returned to the UK from living abroad. It contained a supposed letter from the original creditor on their headed paper but, as far as I can tell the letterhead is not an original and, it is marked page 1 of 2.

 

Sorry if this is a long winded post but, could somebody out there let me know what the next course of action should be? I am in the process of requesting a copy of my credit file to see if they have added a default of their own as, the debt is nearly 6 years old.

 

Thanks

Well the time limit is running, once they are out of time then they can be sent the failed letter.

 

Wait and see what's on your credit file, what was the original debt and who with?

You won't get the deed of assignment.

 

The copy letter they have sent you would be good enough. If there name is against the debt on the CRA file then they will own it.

 

Since the account was terminated by the original creditor Lowell can't add any further charges.

 

They cannot default you again for the same debt, they can only update the existing entry to reflect the fact that they are now the owner.

 

Next course of action is wait for them to comply with the CCA request.

 

If you are nearly six years from the last payment or acknowledgement in writing then be careful not to acknowledge the debt.

The original debt was with barclaycard in the £800 range. Their reply letter was dated 5 Dec so, would that mean they have until 20th dec (business days)to supply the documents?

12 + 2 days from receipt of your request.

 

If they can't then technically they should cease collection activity until they can supply the documents.

well guys, after a long break away from the computer and, a lot of letters from lowells stating they were still looking for the original credit agreement, I've just got a letter through the post reading:

 

After liaising with Barclaycard in an effort to obtain this document we have been advised that it is no longer available due to the length of time since the account was opened with you

 

At this time we have closed our file and will not make any further contact with you concerning payment against this account unless the copy of the agreement is received at some point in the future from barclaycard

 

Now, I know the amount owed is still there but, I was wondering what action, if any, should be taken?

 

I also note that they have not returned the £1 sent for the credit agreement

Looks like Lowells have given up and will bother you no more.

 

If you want to pay this off at a rate you are able to afford, or you decide to not pay the a/c off, that's your prerogative.

 

As the matter is still in dispute and they've not resolved it, they should not sell on the debt. However, that could still be a possibility.

 

Ask them for the £1 CCA fee to be returned and seek their confirmation that the CCA fee was not paid as a credit toward the alleged debt.

 

:-D


We could do with some help from you

Dear bill&ben,

 

Thank you for your recent correspondence dated dd/mm/yyyy the contents of which have been noted.

 

You failed to return the statutory fee of £1 which I sent along with my CCA request, I look forward to receiving this promptly.

 

Regards,
