    • Hi and Welcome to CAG   I have moved your topic to the appropriate forum Mortgages and Secured Loans please continue to post here.   Have you actually checked your CRAs yourself...you say you have been advised...what is showing ?   Andy
    • Yes not much happening at the moment...you could complete your DQ in the meantime...dont submit until advised by the court.      
    • Hi, has anyone had any experience with Barclays Mortgage options being incorrectly advised?   I went on maternity leave 6 months ago and went to Barclays to see what options where in terms of my mortgage. All I was advised was a reduction in my mortgage for 6 months which would result in arrears for six months.   I was not advised of any alternative options eg mortgage holiday or interest only. I have now been advised that Barclays have logged arrears and missed payments on my credit file which was not explained to me. I have sought advise from a financial expert who has advised I have been misinformed.   Has anyone had any experience with dealing with something similar?
    • I've had a read of the council tax 92 regs (admin & enforc).    Section 2 - seems to cover how correspondence concerning a property should be addressed.    I have the following query:   I notified my council by email (lots of messages to and fro) and sent copy of Order - all got resolved, refunds made, property labelled as exempt.    The next  physical letter for the property I still received (on divert). The letter was not in my name.  It was labelled 'The c tax payer'.    I had not given council a forwarding address.    I had email advised I was temp residing elsewhere - so all communication to me, about me, was to be done just by email.    I had also redacted the bank's name on the Order.   Why would the council - as seen in sar - subsequently send letters addressed to me c/o the bank's address?      The council clearly didn't get the bank's details from me. Is it possible bank 'pretended' to be me, used their address as 'my' forwarding contact address?     The property is exempt - so there is no need for 'my' name to be on council records, let alone c/o the bank. How can I find out what has happened?  And can I easily remove the 'wrong' address attached to my name?   dx - these people are trying all sorts of underhand tricks - they are awful.  A barrister friend likened it to "they think they are above the law; they keep trying to circumvent it for their own purposes - and it won't work".     re: the court - they still haven't served sd and their B petition thus got adjourned.  None of this was disclosed in the sar.      Are they now supposed to locate me and issue a proper sd - before the adjourned case  - which they haven't told me about...    Out of curiosity - in the midst of nationwide lock-down how can anyone be served?

Hi guys

hope all is well

and hope im posting in the right place,

 

i have a vehicles which have been reported as stolen, by the people who i leased from.

the lease was for 24 months, i made payments for 21months

the three outstanding payments i was unable to make due to money problems.

 

the people in question are a ltd company, not registered with FSA or anyone else like that.

i only found out it was stolen when i did a hpi check.

 

my question is can this company do this?

what can i do?

what should i tell the police?

i am willing to make the three outstanding payments once i am able to.

 

the v5 is currently under my name.

I am thinking that the police would look at this as a civil matter. I'm assuming that you have copies of the finance/lease agreements so when the police come knocking, simply show them along with the V5 and explain that you are simply in arrears.

If the situation is as straight forward as you have put it, then yes but take all the docs with you

Under the circumstances you describe then I don't think the police will be impressed as I believe this is a civil matter. They have the option of taking you to court to re-possess through the civil court so they are using the police as bailiffs.

I doubt that the police will providing that you can show you have paid the amount that you have. As I say, make surer you have the lease agreement and proof of the amounts you have paid and I'm sure they will treat it as a civil matter. You see, they need a court order to re-possess as you have paid more than 30% of the agreement so from what you are saying, they are looking to the police to hopefully do the work of the civil court on their behalf. If the police act on their report, I would guess that they havn't been entirely truthful with the ;police. Could come back and bite them IMHO.

 

Another option for you to clarify my advice is to run it by CAB.

Do as I advise and come back to tell us what happens. As far as I can see this is a simple case of a default on a finance agreement which is a civil matter. Theft of a motor vehicle is totally different.

If you have the documents, the police can tell you whatever they like. It is the court that gets to decide the real outcome. As already said, it very much sounds like the company is trying to use the police as bailiffs.


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 you have given us the story as it is the no, they can't. You have paid over 30% of the agreement so a court order would be required to re-possess. Check with CAB in the morning.

Can you provide a background of the 30% rule that is unequivocally recognised by the civil court ?

Basically the finance co need a court order to re-possess if at least a third of the original financed amount has been paid. It will be stated in the agreement to what the exact figure is. The car is deemed to be their 'property' until that figure is reached. From then on and until the final payment has been made, then a court needs to decide who possesses the car until the end of the agreement. There is nothing 'unequivocally' about it.

 

Why, are you in a similar situation?

Depends on the type of agreement, if it is a 24 mth lease/contract hire then it will be a business which wont be a regulated agreement, also when was the agreement due to finish and was the car meant to go back to the lease company.

If you are still holding on to the car after the agreement has finished and refusing to hand it back then I think they will have every right to report it stolen.

If the agreement is a lease agreement as you say then I don't think the 30% rule is applicable as it would be on a Hire purchase or conditional sale agreement. The lessor will be the rightful owner until they sell the vehicle, in most cases this the end of term options are mentioned in the agreement. What title terms were agreed in terms of the lease if any in the contract, or were you due to hand the vehicle back at the end of the agreement?

Agreed. A lot will depend on what is written into the agreement but it would be for a county court to decide on whether the agreement was breached by the OP or not. The court would certainly consider the amount that the OP has paid off the original agreement and if the OP has only missed 2 out of 24 payments, I think the court would expect some agreement to be reached before ordering re-possession.

 

If you are still holding on to the car after the agreement has finished and refusing to hand it back then I think they will have every right to report it stolen.

 

In those circumstances yes, but the agreement hasn't reached it's full term yet as understand it.
