    • The decisions were mine.  I had alot going on back in early 2011. We had a fire in our home office and my wife had just started a new job.  I was trying to get my head around my business which folded at the end of 2009 and what to do as well as look after 3 daughters 16, 14 and 11. That was when I decided to use a DMP and let someone else handle a number of c/card issues for both my wife and me. I stopped the DMP around April 2017 and then realised that I would stop paying and push to see who had a possibly valid CCA. Most of the cards have been sold on and there are no valid CCA's so are not enforceable but may raise their heads again. Cbot have decided that the size of this makes it worth trying for  suppose so that's why I'm ready to get this resolved now. Non of the CAG team have given an opinion on this recon CCA yet.   Will pick this up again on Monday as not around over the weekend. Thanks for your help.
    • I have a notice of enforcement, dated 26/4/19! This was the correspondence i received following my response to Harrow council detailing my difficult circumstances and requesting time to pay over installments.  Following receipt of this Notice of enforcement I had the visit just a few days after and before the said date on the letter.   I will do as suggested and contact my local Councillor.   Is it worth me sending a text message to the bailiff i spoke to?    
    • For a Civil Debt they would have to have a Controlled Goods Order with the items properly listed and a copy sined by the debtor. before they could apply to force entry.
    • Okay thankyou I have every faith In Ellen it's just worrying when get the letters especially with 2 little ones to think of makes u feel like u have failed them xx I'm just hoping our luck changes xx
    • Evening all, I wanted some advice on equity in a houseFor approx five years we split all bills/mortgage equally. For the last five years I have paid 2/3 of all bills (inc mortgage) and my husband a third. I also paid for our new kitchen, carpets, decorating, all white goods and much of the furniture. Since we are now separated and he wishes to buy me out the house, do I have a greater claim than 50% of the equity since his expectation is that I will leave all furniture, goods etc with him (as well as obviously having paid more). I also paid for half his car. I haven't decided what to ask for specifically yet, I would just like to know my options.We have a small second house that I purchased for my disabled daughter and I used all of an inheritance on. The remaining £30k to buy this was raised as a small remortgage on our main property. I believe that this would mean he is entitled to some of this £30k and am willing to offset it against the money owed from the sale of the main property. Obviously I do not wish to sell this house as my daughter still lives there and I entirely support her financially myself.I have proposed we leave each others pensions and savings alone (they are roughly equal). Is there anything obviously wrong about my thinking here? I am hopeful we can sort this out between ourselves or via a mediation service.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

I have an rbs overdraft. i also had a rbs loan which has now been paid off.

 

During the it glitch they took off my loan payment twice. to cut a long story short they then made a bit of a mess, but

to make uo for it upped my overdraft limit by £428 for 6 months.

 

I received a letter saying that as of 3 February 2013 my overdraft would be reduced to its previous level (ie) be reduced by £428.

 

February has come and gone with no reduction to my overdraft.

 

I would be in a bit of trouble if they now reduce my o/d by £428. Given that my overdraft was not reduced am i within my rights to assume that i now have a new overdraft limit?

 

If they do reduce my o/d eventually i will complain and ask for an extension (3 months) to allow me to find the £428 which i am sure they will agree to....

They have not reduced my overdraft to the level it was at prior to their IT cOck up.

 

I can only assume that they are happy with the increased charges that i am paying?
