    • Good afternoon - I've received a parking charge notice from VCS - grateful for any advice - do I ignore/appeal? Can VCS enforce the restricted zone in this way, covered under bylaws (I think)?   Driver didn't notice signage, vehicle wasn't actually stopped by double red lines (as pictured)   1 Date of the infringement 25/11/19 2 Date on the NTK 29/11/19 3 Date received 4/12/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? No 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services (VCS) 8. Where exactly Bristol Airport - on "privately operated access roads", just outside car park barrier, not car park itself - stopped for 5 seconds to pick someone up, didn't pick them up and drove away when the camera van arrived. Operate under IAS   Thanks in advance!  
    • Hi,    Thanks for any advice I receive in advance.    If I am honest I haven't really cared about my credit file until recently and am just looking for some advice after signing up. I was in a stupid financial position a few years back, i was a fairly typical teenager who didn't care about debt etc but fortunately I have grown up and am looking to improve this.    I have three defaults on my credit file, from February 2014, June 2014 and May 2015.    My question is about what happens when these are removed. I understand that the defaults are removed after 6 years?   But let's take the February 2014 one as an example. In a couple of months time the 6 years will be up on this. At the moment on my credit file it has a default for every single month since that date. In February, does the whole thing get removed or just the first "little red default". So will it actually take 6 years for all these defaults to come off or does the whole debt get removed?   Thanks S
    • Let them pay for their own Xmas party! OK, so from what I believe, it's statue barred (as it's most likely almost 7 years since my last payment), I don't even know how much what was paid it was that long ago, but certainly 6+years ago.   Should I send them a Statue barred letter/email, as I received this today: PENDING LEGAL ACTION We have not received payment of the overdue balance and you have not made use of our online customer portal to set up a suitable and affordable payment arrangement. Our client has authorised us to progress this matter to our Solicitors to commence the legal action against you via the County Court, therefore please contact us to discuss this matter so we can reach an appropriate resolution.
    • the information and actions taken already in this and all the relevant threads is so disjointed and sadly mostly wrong because the OP cant be asked to follow the advice already given that I doubt even the court know what actually happened   dx

My family member has goods out on BH and now owes the just over £30 a week!!

 

they told me today that BH have been calling out and threatening to get in to house to take goods back.

 

I have told them to SAR as they have many DLC/OC on the accounts,

im wondering if they stop payment and make a token payment to them as they are now financially struggling as they have lost their job :|

 

i know BH will throw a tantrum

the store manager is prone to calling police out to customers who don't make payments

and of course because police are not trained they just say please pay or allow them to take the goods,

i personally think it there way of getting in the house.

sorry

the police have NO authority whatsoever

 

and BH have EVEN LESS

to turn up at anyones house

 

THEY ARE NOT BAILIFFS

and have NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS

 

 

you need to report this action to TS/OFT etc

 

as for the osc/dlc they ARE NOT COMPULSORY

neither are any PENALTY charges - they are an unlawful penalty

 

get them all back.

 

yes make token payments.

 

TELL [dont ask] them they are only going to get £xxPCM for xx mts

as a goodwill gesture

and as a reciprocal GOGW they must freeze int & refrain from levying PENALTY charges.

if they wont

drop them to £1PCM for life.

.

as an example>

LETTER 1

.

I am currently in financial difficulties and not able to meet my normal monthly repayments.

to show my goodwill, i am going to pay £5 for 6 mts.

 

i will update you in 6mts time or before, should my situation change.

could you please as a reciprocal goodwill guesture,

refrain from levying any penalty charges & freeze the interest on my account.?

Should you fail to assist me during a period of financial difficulty, contrary to all the guidelines and codes

issued by the relevent bodies and authorities that govern you and the way you conduct yourselves.

i shall have no alternative but to reduce my offer to £1PCM for the rest of the life of the account,

as your actions would do nothing to help me.

i thank you for your time.

signed

.

then pay by your internet banking site

.

and get reclaiming

.

TAKE CONTROL

.

if you have sent the above and they refuse

then write back........

.

.LETTER 2

 

i'm sorry, but you have failed to assist me during a period of financial difficulty,

against all the guidelines and codes issued by the relevent bodies and authorities

that govern you and the way you conduct yourselves.

i repeat again, the contents of my letter dated dd/mm/yyyy, for want of clarification:

to show my goodwill, i am going to pay £XX for XX mts

could you please as a reciprocal goodwill guesture, refraining from levying any penalty charges

& freeze the interest on my account.

i will update you in 6mts time or before, should my situation chance.

should you fail to help by refraining from levying unlawful PENALTY charges & freeze my interest,

i shall have no alternative but to reduce my offer to £1PCM for the rest of the life of the account,

as your actions are doing nothing to help me.

This is contrary to the rules you should operate under.

if you DEFINATELY know police have assisted BH staff in removing goods

then you need to make a serious complaint.

You MUST make formal complaints about the police, as the police are way out of line.


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..

Hi Stuggling,

 

Thanks for making me aware of your concerns.

 

We advise that if a customer is in financial difficulty and struggling to make payment, they should contact their store as soon as possible. There’s a lot we can do to help and we want to work with our customers to find a solution that fits with their circumstances.

 

In this instance, can you please ask the account holder to email our customer relations team (customer.relations@brighthouse.co.uk) with the details of their enquiry so we can help investigate the matter further.

 

Alternatively, they can also call us directly on 0800 526 069.

 

Kind Regards

 

Jason

Brighthouse or this particular manager can shout all they want about involving the police.

 

The police will not get involved as it is a civil matter & no criminal activity or offence has taken place.

 

Brighthouse or their representatives can also not force their way into your property,

they have no legal right to even attempt to do so.

 

As the householder it is within your rights to refuse them entry.

 

After a certain period of time,

they will pass the visit's over to a ARM (Asset Recovery Manager) other than the standard CAA (Customer Accounts Advisor),

be aware the the ARM has no more power or authority than the CAA.

Don't be intimidated by the bully boy tactics.

It has been noticed that the BrightHouse reps have not been overly active despite the company's request to join CAG. The requirements were that they would be active in helping to resolve the issues raised by their customers and to provide updates on the threads to which they responded. To date I don't see much which would show that they are living up to expectations.

 

There is little point in having company reps on CAG if all they want to do is provide a customer service contact and hope that is the end of it. Reps on CAG should be actively posting to try and resolve issues and are given the chance to improve the reputation of their company.

 

As a result the account status of BrightHouse is being reviewed which may lead to their accounts being deactivated.

 

As a footnote, if anyone reading this thread has a copy of the new BrightHouse terms & conditions whereby the OSC and DLC is automatically included but with a huge rise in the APR, can you please PM me and I will give you an e-mail address to which you can send copies of the documents.
