    • Hi Looking for some advice to get prepared for the worst. I purchased a 2015 car on HP in July for ~£33k. I took it to the main dealer for its annual service on the 25th November. As I went back waiting for the last bits to be done, I was called to the workshop to be shown one of the spark plug wells half full  of coolant. After an afternoon of inspection and an overnight pressure test, it was diagnosed as a crack in the water jacket. It is small, hence not noticing it by low coolant levels or other routine maintenance, and it’s the first service in the schedule where the plugs would be changed.    I immediately contacted the finance company and said I am Informing them of the fault under my consumer credit rights and I will be in touch once I know more. I shortly thereafter got the report from the dealer and forwarded it to the finance company. They finally got back to me last Thursday (response speed not being their strong suite once agreement signed..). Initially they tried to say they are talking with the dealer and I said as far as I know my contract is with them, and it’s got a crack in a lump of aluminium and the only fix is a new head- so it’s just who does the bill get sent to. The issue is obvious. They tried to say that the dealer is jointly liable to me? Anyway I went ok whatever intending to contact the dealer myself if that’s the case, however they then phoned me back saying they spoke to their manager and they need to have the car “inspected”, again I argued this as they already had a report from a dealer from a prestige brands main dealer - it’s akin to dropping an egg on the floor and then insisting it goes through 5 experts to diagnose why the yoke is all over the place..but they said they “can’t take my word on it” and need their engineer. I said I insist on being there during the inspection which they said was ok. They said they will contact me later that day or Friday to book the inspection. They didn’t. They did give me the name of the company as Scotia Inspections. So off I go to Google and no medals for guessing how I got here..   So anyway, I don’t want to be given the run around, nor just pay it all myself - the repair is nearly £8.5k - especially considering the time of year… Any advice on how I can get ahead of the (what I am sure is the start of) stalling tactics, blaming it on the offside rear tyre not being from rubber from jungles roamed by unicorns or something. I want the car repaired- as it is brilliant otherwise. So far the dealer has been very accommodating but they are a business- where do I stand if they start wanting to charge storage fees or similar? It is not at the dealer I purchased it from as they are 100miles away.

    • H i linzie   What is important here is your Daughter is the Landlord of the Property and has Employed the Services of this Letting Agent to manage the Property of her behalf.   Your Daughter need to have a good read of the Agreement that she signed with this Letting Agent.   She also need to check if this Letting Agent is signed up to any other companies that regulate how they operate and their code of conduct as she can contact them for advice i.e. if their is any reason they should not have carried out planned inspections during COVID-19.   IMO your Daughter needs to write to this Letting Agent and ask why these Inspections have not been carried out and if they are still going to give the reason of COVID-19 you require Full Clarification as to what Legislation/Regulation they are relying and the specific area and why you the Landlord were never notified of this.   Have the Tenants in the Property reported these faults to the Letting Agent before your Daughter had a look?   Who is the Letting Agent?

Hi Begarion,

 

If there is a bank loan or overdraft involved, The Lending Code may offer you some hope -

Otherwise have you looked at the possibility of help from the BCOB Regulations. Click on the link for more info.

Hello,

 

My first post on here so just finding my way round. I have tried to click the link above but I am being blocked from doing so. The message is saying that I do not have permission to access this page. Hopefully the access issue will be sorted soon. That being the case, are there template letters available for the various stages that may be required to negotiate, or is the link to the letter above the only letter required?

 

I am actually looking into the possibility of reclaiming some Barclays business account charges for a colleague of mine who does not have internet access. He has had charges on charges for several years and has had a Business Loan and an overdraft facility over the years (although no overdraft facility in place now). The charges have caused hardship.

 

Other than the link to the letter above (and/or any other available letter templates), is there a link to an interest calculator by any chance?

 

Hope this post makes sense.

 

Regards

Hello,

 

A few questions regarding the hardship "Letter For Consideration" if I may. Firstly, is it best to preclude this edited letter template with a Subject Access Request (ie, request all transaction data under the Data Protection Act?). The reason being, as far as I am aware, not all hard copy bank statements are available and as the account is still active, how far back can the claim go?

 

Also, in the "Letter For Consideration," reference is made to providing an income and expenditure statement. I take it this refers to the business I&E. Is it also worth providing a schedule of private expenditure to support this letter? My colleague only has a Barclays business account, he has no private account.

 

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

 

Regards

 

Frank

Hi Frank,

 

A claim for hardship (Financial Difficulty) will normally refer to the current Lending Code that came into force in March 2011. I assume you have bank statements going back at least 6 years as you need these for (business) income tax purposes. So I doubt you need to precede a reclaim letter with a SAR.

 

As YF has only one bank a/c (the business a/c), the I&E summary should show YF's total income and expenditure. This should be used to show YF and/or the business is in Financial Difficulty thereby requiring the bank to offer help under the Lending Code.

 

You should tell YF that refunds of charges, whether for business or private a/c's, are pretty rare these days and there's no certainty about getting anything back.

Thanks slick132. Yes there will be statements available for the last six years. Is that as far back as the claim can go though?

 

Ideally it would have been handy if he had electronic downloads instead of hard copies, but as mentioned he does not have (or know how to get) internet access and is also a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to computers generally (hence my involvement and offer of help).

 

He is aware that there are no guarantees, but as I said to him, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Hi Frank,

 

As I suggested above, I would probably limit any claim under the Financial Difficulty section of The Lending Code to the date the current code was introduced.

 

I think a claim going back any further will be rejected out-of-hand.
