    • Hmm, so.. basically have to rely on the default notice not containing all that it should and the claimant misleading the court for the reason for the application.. and judge lottery : /
    • Which would require a hearing....so the fee would be £255.00
    • When providing a copy of an executed agreement in response to a request under section 78(1) of the Act:   a.     must a creditor provide a photocopy (or other form of complete copy) of the original agreement that was signed by the debtor or at least provide a copy which is derived directly from the original agreement or complete copy thereof? or b.     can a creditor provide a document which is a reconstitution of the original agreement which may be from sources other than the actual signed agreement itself?   It was held that a creditor can satisfy its duty under section 78 by providing a reconstituted version of the executed agreement which may be from sources other than the actual signed agreement itself.   The judge accepted that as a matter of law, section 78 does not itself require any particular explanation as to how the copy was made. However, as a matter of good practice and so as not to mislead the debtor, it is desirable that the creditor should explain that it is providing a reconstituted as opposed to a physical copy of the executed agreement. This will also explain why the copy might otherwise look a little odd. The creditor can also explain in the letter that this procedure is satisfactory under the Act. The judge also provided that the following information needs to be included in the reconstituted copy agreement (assuming of course that it was present in the original):   1.     Heading: Credit Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 2.     Name and address of the debtor 3.     Name and address of the creditor 4.     Cancellation clause applicable to the executed agreement.   All of the above may be provided on a sheet which is separate from the full statement of terms and conditions which also forms part of the reconstituted agreement. The creditor may, however, decide to reconstitute the agreement in a different way so that, for example, the information above is populated electronically onto the same sheet as that which sets out the terms and conditions, or some of them. The judge stated that he did not intend to prescribe the precise form of the reconstituted agreement. The key point is what information it should contain, subject to the point that its format should not be such as to mislead the debtor as to what he agreed to.   The judge also considered whether a statement like the one appearing in the reconstructed application form in Carey referring to the agreement to the terms and conditions "attached" needs to be included in the reconstituted copy. Alternatively if the application form had said "I agree to the terms overleaf", should that statement be included. The judge held that this aspect of the form is not necessary for the purpose of the section 78 copy, although there is nothing to stop a bank from putting it in or indeed from furnishing a copy of the type of application form or signature page that the debtor would have signed, as some banks have done. The statement referring to terms and conditions is not itself prescribed information and the supply of the terms and conditions which were applicable at the time will tell the debtor what he needs to know in terms of the content of what he signed up to, including the presence (or otherwise) of the prescribed terms.   In practical terms what this is likely to mean is that if the creditor chooses to use as the section 78 copy the section 63 copy, which would have been provided to that particular debtor at the time following execution of the agreement, this will be sufficient provided that the information referred to above is supplied. This exercise is not a mere formality. The creditor will need to check carefully that the details of the debtor at the time are correct and that those are the particular terms (including prescribed terms) that he/she agreed to. This is to ensure that it is an honest and accurate copy.   Must a creditor provide a document which would comply (if signed) with the requirements of the Consumer Credit (Agreements) Regulations 1983 (Regulations) as to form, as at the date the agreement was made in order to comply with section 78?   A creditor need not, in complying with section 78, provide a document which would comply (if signed) with the requirements of the Regulations as to form, as at the date the agreement was made.   Must the copy provided under section 78 include the debtor's name and address as at the date when the agreement was made, and if so in what form? The section 78 copy must contain the name and address of the debtor as it was at the time of the execution of the agreement. But the creditor can provide the name and address from whatever source it has of those details. It does not have to take them from the executed agreement itself.     If an agreement has been varied by the creditor under a unilateral power of variation, is a copy of the executed agreement as varied, a sufficient copy for the purposes of section 78(1), or must the creditor provide a copy of the original agreement as well?   If an agreement has been varied by the creditor under a unilateral power of variation, the creditor must still provide a copy of the original agreement, as well as the varied terms.     As your agreement is post April 2007  Section 61(1)(a) and 127(3)   Consumer Credit Act 1974 would not apply.   Andy

We are both in our early sixties and on pension credit.

 

Recently we have lost two close friends with one passing away just before Xmas.

 

Although we have no intent for dying just yet, it will happen at some point. You never never know when your time is up!

 

We have looked at some over 50's plans and pre pay funeral plans on the Sun Life website.

 

For £25 per month I get £4545 cover and need to pay until I am 90.

If I die in the next two years no pay out.

 

Similar applies for prepay funeral however they lump in a load of extras that we don't really need.

 

we both want simple funerals without an eulogy, music, people grieving etc. as we do not see any point in it.

Although we are of the Christian faith, as you no longer occupy your body and it is of no use to any one, why not take it straight to the crematorium wrapped in a shroud?

That way no funeral debt is left behind.

 

We are also considering "Whole of life" cover which may be a better option than the Sun Life deals even though you have to pay it monthly for the rest of your life.

 

It seems that for £25 I can get up to £10,000 cover.

 

Are there any other options out there?

no savings or bank accounts with about £1500 in?

 

you dont have to have cover

 

and IMHO its a waste of money!

 

so many catches nad you stop it you lose it.

 

typically many pay in £1000's more because you lose if you stop.

 

or the costs come out of your estate.

 

the executors would sort that

We had a look at this site which seems to offer life cover for £10,000 at a reasonable monthly rate of £25 even though the monthly rate is payable until death. After 25 years we would have paid in £7500 and by that time I will be 88! Not sure if I have understood it correctly on Whole of Life cover.

Get a quote for pre paid funeral from the CO-OP. We did this for elderly aunt and when died the CO-OP did everything to give her a decent send off. Plans were for minimum funeral right up to expensive, and could be paid up front in full or taken over a 12mth. period interest free. You could in fact pay it up over a longer period but obviously that attracts interest payments.

CO-OP offered to tailor a funeral to aunts requirements and a basic funeral was not expensive.
