The next correspondence I received was from Robinsons Way/Hoist asking for payment 2019.   In addition, I responded to Robinsons Way/Hoist requesting the CCA on 19/02/2020. Hoist then sent correspondence on 23/02/2021 that Lloyds were unable to provide this documentation and that until Hoist received further information from Lloyds, they would temporarily cease action on the account whilst Hoist “waited for a resolution”. I have not received an update since then (except for this claim).   What was the date of your last payment? 2014   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter a debt management plan? No       Starting a new thread following on from this thread.   Background:   Student account overdraft with Lloyds Last payment made was in 2014 Robinsons Way/Hoist contacted in late 2019 Asked for CCA 19th February 2020 Received communication stating they were trying to obtain CCA 23rd February 2021  Robinsons Way/Hoist said they would cease action until they obtained information from Lloyds Heard nothing from Robinsons Way/Hoist until the CCJ claim Despite the lack of relevant information from Lloyds as per the above, Robinsons Way/Hoist marked the account as defaulted on credit file 11th March 2016  No idea how they came up with this date if they don't have necessary paperwork from Lloyds   Here are the Particulars of Claim for the OD:
    • Hi BankFodder, Thank you so much for taking the time to answer to my case. I have to say I always found great pleasure on reading eloquent mind like yours. Unfortunately my english is not by far as good as yours and I think few sentences on my previous paragraph might have been misunderstood. Apologies for that. I write in a rush, between one task and another, with two children grabbing my attention all the time, but you are right I should have taken more time to read through your forum. I did read though many of the cases reported (you see I don't even put the space in between the paragraph as you suggested to help people reading on small screen) and the only reasons I stated the 3 points in my second message is to tell you what is the position they have taken. I had read already about the insurance in your forum as well as the amount declared, but I was just reporting my case to you to have a full picture. It was naive indeed saying that the value of my items were £500, my bad. But I haven't changed the value 3 times like you mentioned. I firstly declared £500 when I paid for the service and then I declared £1200 when I filed for the small claim court (and recap all the evidence in my possess), so to them I actually just change the value once. Nevertheless my only worry was the fact that I had signed a contract with them where they stated (as reported in my previous message) they won't pay more than £300. But if you say that it's anyway their negligence of having lost my parcel (and of course I agree with you!), I am happy to refuse their offer and see where this is going. The parcel is lost and with it a lot of sentimental stuff, I guess I would feel better if I knew there was a bit of a fairer judgment. Although naive, I know that my actions were and are in good faith, I am not sure I can say the same about them. P.S. I also did claim interest when file for small claim court. One more thing, if this is going to court, do I need to get myself a lawyer?   Many thanks again for your help.   Kind regards, Anturia
    • I don't think so. The information is supposed to be incorporated as part of the manufacturing process.   Most of the providers who flout these regulations get away with it because they say that their produce is a "show plate." Those producing legal plates are registered with the DVLA and will insist on ownership documentation. Here's some FAQs from a legit supplier:   Frequently Asked Questions - UK Registrations (ukregplates.co.uk)   A couple of those questions and answers: Do your number plates include your legal details? / Are your number plates road-legal? All of our number plates feature the required legal markings. This means that the text "PLATE FINDER SM1 4NG" will be shown on the bottom centre of the plate and "BSAU 145d" will be shown on the bottom right of the plate. This text allows the relevant authorities to find out which company produced the number plates if required. Do you require documentation? As a DVLA registered number plate supplier, we have to request documents that prove your identity and that you can use the registration number. We understand this is a slight inconvenience, but do our best to ensure sending documents to us is made as simple as possible. Be aware of other suppliers that do not request these documents, as it may suggest the replacement number plates they are producing are not road legal. [my highlighting]   When sending in documents we require one of each of the following: To confirm your identity driving licence utility, Council Tax or rates bill from the last 6 months bank or building society statement from the last 6 months national identity card To confirm you can use the registration vehicle registration certificate (V5C or V5CNI) new keeper supplement (V5C/2 or V5C/2NI) of entitlement (V750 or V750NI) to the number retention document (V778) - not applicable in Northern Ireland a renewal reminder for vehicle tax or SORN (V11 or V11NI) temporary registration certificate (V379 or V379NI) a number plate authorisation certificate (V948) with an official stamp from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) or Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) an electronic number plate authorisation certificate (eV948) a letter of authorisation from a fleet operator (including lease or hire company) quoting the document reference number from the registration certificate This is a link to the DVLA's register of authorised number plate suppliers:   Find your nearest number plate supplier - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)   If you wanted street legal plates it seems you may have done your money.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi, I know a little about insolvent estates and intestate, but nothing about this subject.

 

Myself and my sister are named as joint executors of our father's estate and are the only beneficiaries.

 

I haven't spoken to my sister for many years and don't wish to do so in the future.

 

Father is in poor health aged 89 and he insists that he will not change his directions.

 

So when the day comes following his death (hopefully not for many years to come) what powers do we have. Yes I know how the whole thing works but the problem I have is that my sister would want a solicitor to handle the estate, whereas I, due to the family breakdown, would want to cause her as much difficulty and cost as I can.

 

I will not accept any solicitor being appointed by her - can she over rule me and appoint one in her right as the joint executor?

 

Personally as far as I am concerned I don't want any of my father's money (estate will be net worth in excess of £500,000). On the other hand I want to make it as difficult and as costly as I can for her to have her half share.

 

What can happen if the estate is never wound up because of my actions - can anybody else forcibly intervene?

 

Ideally, I would be more than happy for the State to take ownership of the estate until an agreement is reached between us which will be never!

This is a bad idea. You would be in clear breach of your duties as executor. Your sister (or one of the other beneficiaries) would be forced to make an application to court. Most likely they would make an application under s50 Administration of Justice Act 1985 for you to be removed as executor and your sister appointed as sole executor instead.

 

You would certainly cause delay. But you would be the only person left out of pocket. The court would simply order you to pay all the legal costs involved in the court application, which could easily be in the tens of thousands, plus compensation and interest to the beneficiaries for the delay.

 

I don't know what your particular circumstances are, but I am genuinely sad to hear that your relationship with your sister has deteriorated like this. I hope that at some point in the future you guys can patch things up, especially as this is what your father wants. If you do not feel that you can discharge the legal duties of an executor, then when your father dies you should decline the appointment.

I totally agree with steampowered. You are under no obligation to take on the role of executor but if you try to delay things the only people who will gain are solicitors and the only person to lose will be you.

Please please try to make things up as life is far too short. Holding that much anger and bitterness is destructive. I can vouch for that. It has taken me nearly 40 years and while i can not fully forgive that person i am at peace with it now and have forgiven her to a great extent.

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Thank you for the information.

There are only two beneficiaries, myself and my sister.

 

I understand that she could apply to to be the sole executor and that the costs etc including my costs of defending the action would be bourne by myself. I have no problem with that, that would be her intention from the start, she has made that clear already via her solicitor to my solicitor.

 

Obviously that would cause a huge dent in the half that I would be entitled to.

 

I can't stop her appointing her own solicitor to act for her in her own personal capacity as executor, nor can she stop me doing the same - that has already been agreed what will happen.

 

So as I see it, it would be quite easy for me to run up a considerable debt that hopefully will wipe out my half - £250,000.

 

As for her half, she will have to fund her own solicitor and be half responsible for any solicitor that she appoints to deal with the estate.

 

That seems to be the way forward and is what my solicitor has already told me.

Personally I was looking for a way that would ensure that her half was sufficiently depleted as well. Delay is one thing, but what will really annoy her is if she sees her inheritance being swallowed up in legal costs as well.

 

Hopefully I have a few years to sort out the best way forward to make that happen.

 

My relationship with my sister became impossible following the death of our mother in 2003. i have no intention in even wanting to meet her or talk to her. We currently communicate with each other through our own solicitors. If I can cause her as much delay and loss the better it is for me.

 

If it was at all possible for the entire estate to be taken to cover legal costs, I would throw a party!

 

Thanks for your input.

I would be more than pleased if the legal costs exceeded the value of the estate.

 

Unfortunately, I am not the type to forgive and forget. Even my wife tells me that she can't understand how I can hold grudges for decades. Once someone upsets me or crosses me that is the end - family or not.

 

Even now I still plan retribution towards people that 'turned me over' back in the early 90's! Without that anger and bitterness I am nothing, the thought that people be allowed to get away with things without suffering consequences is what drives me forward every day.

Your intended action to interfere with the proper administration of your father's Estate would leave you personally liable for any costs incurred, your father's Estate would not bear such costs arising from such unreasonable conduct of an Executor.

Please do not let your hate for your sister blind you to the reality of the situation. You are never going to be able to force your sister to spend her entire share of the estate on legal costs.

 

£250,000 is the kind of legal fees you would see in a multi-week commercial trial for millions of pounds involving hundreds of boxes of paperwork and tens of witnesses. It is not what you would expect from a straightforward section 50 application. The courts actively manage proceedings to keep costs proportionate to the amount at stake, it simply will not allow you to drag out the proceedings.

 

Being an exectuor is not that complicated. If you start playing silly buggers it will be obvious to everyone involved. The court will simply grant a section 50 application and remove you as executor without too much fuss. The costs would probably be 10k or 20k at most, which would be deducted from your share of the estate and that would be the end of it. You are living in a fantasy land if you think you can force your sister to blow the entire estate on lawyers, the court simply will not permit this.

 

In any event, you might struggle to find a solicitor willing to embark on this course of action. Bringing vexatious proceedings with no legitimate purpose other than to harass and harm another person is a breach of the Solicitor's Code of Conduct and would expose them to disciplinary action by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

 

You seem to assume that your liability is limited to your £250,000 share of the estate. This is wrong. Costs will be ordered against you personally. In the unlikely event that your sister's costs exceed your £250,000 share of the estate then your personal assets would be at risk. Your sister could then ask the court to grant an order giving her control of your bank account, make you bankrupt, send round bailiffs, or get a charging order and ultimately order for sale against your house.

 

My relationship with my sister became impossible following the death of our mother in 2003. i have no intention in even wanting to meet her or talk to her. We currently communicate with each other through our own solicitors. If I can cause her as much delay and loss the better it is for me.

 

I think this is really sad. At the end of the day, she is still your sister. Even if you don't want to talk to her, just move on your with life. The only person you will hurt by acting like this is yourself: you will end up thousands of pounds out of pocket, you will be the one hurting your father and by acting in some a vengeful way you will hurt yourself more than you hurt her. I can only hope that time will heal the wounds. If you cannot stand dealing with her then simply do not accept the appointment as executor, or simply appoint a solicitor and let them deal with it.

 

Rather than spending money on solicitors I recommend spending it on a counsellor.

I do actually agree about spending the money on a counsellor. There is a danger of you becoming a sad bitter lonely old man. I am sorry if this sounds harsh. Life really is too short to spend it on being bitter. Hate is such a destructive emotion.

Yes I understand that, the costs would be deducted from the £250,000 that I would be entitled to under his will? Money that I don't want.

Costs include your costs as well as any costs that your intended action would cause to your sister. If you undertake your proposed course of action, your sister will not suffer, you would be removed quite quickly by Order of the Court.

 

In my opinion, you are a nasty and cold hearted person, your posts here making reference as to revenge clearly reflect this. I can hardly believe that any woman would want to hook up with a "Banker Rhymes with W" like you.

Ummm, there doesn't seem a way then of forcing my sister to lose all or part of her inheritance with the way I am thinking. Obviously I will have to think of another way round this problem.

 

To be honest, i don't particularly care what she could do to me, it would be such a pleasure if I could do something that would cause her sufficient grief - her only interest in life is money and what she can do with it! Me, I'll be just be as happy with my wife and dog living in a bedsit on benefits with nothing just as long as she doesn't get much out of the deal and it all goes in legal fees.

 

But I thank you for the advice and pointers given.

If you do not wish to benefit from your Fathers estate then simply donate your inheritance to a worthy charity...... don't try to frustrate the process to get at your Sister.Your intentions would simply not be entertained by the legal profession to conduct vexatious litigation because of a feud.

 

End Of...I will close this thread shortly unless some positive attitude is instilled.

I don't know how you could say that, you have no idea what has gone on for the past 40 years and in particular over the past 10 years. As I have said I would pay the whole £250,000 to a solicitor if it meant that it would cause enough grief to my sister.

 

Oh yes it is revenge.

 

Put it this way, if you believed and knew that for years people, including family had systematically caused problems in your own family, have taken large amounts of money from you and were so vexatious and devious that they committed perjury which resulted in you being sent to prison, I doubt whether you would be so forgiving! Yes I came out a broken man, having lost all faith in everyone. I approached all concerned and wanted to know why - which resulted in another prison term.

 

Coming out and finding that no one had told you that your mum had died, and that all of her personal and valuable belongings had been removed 'and no one knew who did it'? Then being told by my niece that her mother, my sister had everything and had disposed of it. It left my father a destroyed man - he begged my sister to hand back mum's wedding and engagement rings which she refused saying that they had been sold.

As regards accepting your position to Executors office underyour father’s Will, I would advise you to seek proper independent professionaladvice and/or purchase a copy of Williams, Mortimer and Sunnucks- Executors,Administrators and Probate Nineteenth Edition (or indeed the Twentieth Editionis out now - £275), either will provide you with a great understanding of thisarea of law because, based upon the material set out here by you, it appearsthat your present nominated agent has no understanding or perhaps, rather noregard for the same.

Your GP may be able to give you a prescription to try andhelp you as regards your dark revenge tendencies.

Thank you for that info. I don't need to see the GP regarding medication, I am already a patient of the local CMHT and do already take anti phys drugs that they have prescribed.

If I didn't take them, I dread to think what I am capable of.
