    • what time do you have to go in today? I am wondering whether it might not be a good idea to go in with the letter of claim and if there is any mucking around them to hand it to them.   We would have to draft something appropriate.   in any event I think you should prepare an sar and take it with you and hand it to them make sure that they realise what it is. Hand it to a senior manager.   Use our sar template here.   I think that they are starting to lead you around by the nose and I think that you should take control and make sure that they realise but there is only a short time before it goes legal. A letter of claim would be the best thing to do in addition to the sar

    • go back and read what andyorch said in my above links about a DEED of assignment NOT being a Notice Of Assignment. its a general document for a portfolio of MANY debts they bought on a spreadsheet, NOT specifically relating to YOUR Agreement. but your was like all others, a single line in a spreadsheet.    the sheriff has specifically asked for the NOA and the Default Notice ...neither of which the fleecers have provided, merly a load of ole twaddle like trump does to divert attention away from those NOT being provided.   forget the stuff about LOP 1925 etc that a NOE is NOT applicable in scotland , the sheriff has asked for it..end of!!   bedtime reading particularly regarding default notice sec 87 https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?484300-Cabot-nolans-SPC-Claim-Old-Next-CAT-Debt(2-Viewing)-nbsp&p=5119630#post5119630   read from about post 70.   as for the written submission. i'll find an example later.   dx

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I have no contact with the owner since they left my property

 

The Local Authority told me 15th March 2012

 

The Car is worth about £3000

 

I provided them with a letter from DVLA confirming their records showed I acquired the vehicle on the 1/10/2012 and a copy of the insurance certificate.

 

The bailiffs want £720.

 

The seizure is related to the isolated pcn.

I am trying to be helpful but it is very annoying when you post back with a response that consists of just one or 2 lines. This is becoming a real problem on the forum and I can only assume that posters are using mobile phones etc to respond.

 

PS: As an example, we still have no idea which council is involved. I would also be surprised it the warrant had been issued in March 2012. Are you sure of this information or is this the date that the PCN was issued.

 

PS: If you have issued a writ then this should have been against the COUNCIL and NOT the bailiff company. The bailiff firm are merely agents of the local authority.

 

Also, from what I have read so far, I would almost certainly suggest that the police are called straight away as it would seem that YOUR car has been STOLEN for somebody else's debt. It has NOT been seized in respect of a warrant and the reason for this is because:

 

THE WARRANT IS IN THE NAME OF THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND THE WARRANT PERMITS THE BAILIFF TO SEIZE GOODS BELONGING TO THE DEBTOR ON THE DAY OF SEIZURE !!!!

 

This is another reason WHY it is most important to KNOW the precise date of the warrant !!!!

I apologise I am replying through my mobile phone.

 

This I thought is common sense. I have called the police 4 times all telling me its a civil matter. They even gave me a reference number for the call CAD 3080.

 

The council involved is Southwark Council. I made them the primary defendant and newlyn the secondary defendant.

 

From everything I have read thus far newlyn and Sourhwark are wrong but the reality is they still hold my car.

 

It begs the question if I take an individuals property and tell them I've taken in because someone else owes me money will the police act then??

 

I thought we lived in a law governed society but it seems we don't. I'm really getting distressed over this situation

Ypur problem is that you cqlled them and spoke to a silly pcso. you need to go to the station in person and demand to speak to a sergeant or higher.

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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Looks like apparatchiks are hiding behind Data Protection Act to be obstructive, have you contacted your MP? Point them in the direction of this threas along with a Formal Complaint to CEO, and Elected Leader, and your councillor regarding the unlawful seizure and retention of a motor vehicle for a debt that is not yours, indicate the Blaby council LGO report, and inform them as the matter is criminal now, you will be writing to the Police commissioner for the MET

We could do with some help from you.

I hope that nobody minds but I am sending the poster a PM regarding the "warrant of execution".

I agree tt sometimes the situation is so serious that info via pm is critical, i consider this case is such. There is an obvious disregard of the legal position of the council's culpability for Newlyns intransigence, .

You dealt with some silly phone operators. Sure they are employed by the police, but theyre still pointless. Go to your local station and speak to them in person. Make sure to quote what has been said on this thread about theft. If the sergeant wont listen, speak to the SI.

Thanks for all your help.

 

I have started court action and I will visit my local police station and call my mp because I do not understand why this is happening.

 

It might take long to get my car back but at least I will get some costs from Southwark Council and Newlyn PLC.

 

All my stress and annoyance will not be in vain.

 

Thanks again

  • 7 months later...

After all the stresses I LOST!!!! I have to pay Southwark Council and Newlyn £2725 in legal cost and I lose my car. Basically I lose almost £7k in costs and the car.

 

Who says the legal system is to protect the innocent is a LIAR!

 

I HAD RESPECT for the justice system until yesterday.

 

The judge said it was not the right of the previous owner to sell the car with a levy placed on it. Therefore the car was rightly seized despite DVLA records.

 

She feels my claim is unreasonable therefore I should pay their cost.

 

Please learn from my mistake.

 

I am curious what happens to the car now?

I hope that your post gets picked up by another forum as that forum actively encourage unsuspecting debtors to file claims in the court and they CONSTANTLY keep misleading people that costs CANNOT be charged if you lose.

 

Your case had PROVED what I have been saying for a very long time indeed that you should AVOID taking legal action against a bailiff company.

 

I am so sorry to hear about this and as you will know from previous posts I stressed how important it was to obtain precise details of the date of the warrant. I assume that you were unable to obtain a copy of the screen shot of the account as such a request can only be made by the previous owner.

 

From what you have written, it would "appear" that Newlyn had previously levied upon the car. If so....was any EVIDENCE provided to support such a claim?

 

You have not posted since last February and in between this time Newlyn or Southwark would have no doubt provided their witness statement. Was anything provided to support their claim of previous seizure?

Hi Tomtubby,

 

Thank you for responding

 

Nothing was provided in their bundle, they were leading to this conclusion hence the reason I was so confident I would win.

 

But there is no point in arguing over it anymore. I have sent a proposal to southwark council to start paying their legal costs.

 

I just want to know what they will do with the car now

I was trying to ascertain what EVIDENCE had been provided to the court to PROVE that a prior valid levy had been made upon the car?

 

I hope that they did not try to rely upon the "old chestnut" that goods are bound from delivery of the warrant because if so...this is damed nonsense.

 

If you lost the case then I can only assume Newlyn can sell your car to pay the debt.

 

Were you ever able to get any information from the previous owner?

 

I have so many questions that I would like to ask.

The previous owner is useless.

 

He sent me documents he sent TE7 and TE9 to the TEC but I am assuming that is irrelevant.

 

I guess this is an expensive lesson for me.

 

I am never buying a car from a private seller again!

 

OH WELL!

 

Thanks for your help tomtubby.

 

All the best

 

I loved that car

 

What are the possibilities of getting my personal belongings in the car?

 

I have a very nice watch and some other things in the car

You should be able to get your personal belongings from the place where the car is stored. Almost all auctioneers storage facilities will remove personal belongings before sale anyway but this may depend on whether they have the keys or have had some cut.

 

With regards to your considerable outlay you should be able to issue a claim against the previous owner. Success of recovering your money will clearly depend on their financial circumstances though.
