    • you ring you bank    
    • i suspect the charge on the Land registry site against the house reads:   2. (XX.XX.2007) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council at P.O. Box XX, STREET, TOWN, POSTCODE, being the person with the benefit of a Charge under Section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   ..............   that is a restriction k and is useless to the council, as all 'legally' your have to do is inform them AFTER the house has been sold . then it's too late money has gone.   dx
    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I know this thread is a bit old but thought I'd pitch in with today's events.

 

I had a wonga loan - probably about 4yrs old if I'm honest. No payments made, loan sold or transferred to pra. Not exactly chased for the debt after I told them a while ago to go forth and multiply when they rang and caught me at a bad time. Can't honestly remember how much they claimed I owed. Verbally disputed the amount a few times etc.

 

Today, I had an email from wonga to say my debt had been written off due to the new affordability rules!! They have recalled the account from pra and removed the default from my credit file. Bonus!!

I too have had my old loan written off. Was sent to pra so previously told it wasn't going to be considered in there affordability testing. Such a surprise when I saw the email.

I had the same email from Wonga yesterday and my debt which was sold to PRA has been written off. This comes after they rejected my complaint in January stating they carried out appropriate affordability checks.

My complaint was with the FOS and the adjudicator found in my favour after Wonga didn't respond to them. I was awaiting the final decision from the Ombudsman. I'm pleased the debt has now been written off, but annoyed with Wonga for fobbing me off for so long and they ignored the FOS as well.

Hi

 

Do any of you know how much of a percentage your loan was to your stated income? Wonga have not written my loan off stating that if they had carried out the correct affordability checks i would still have been accepted. I find this hard to believe as i received a loan that was over 80% of my stated income, surely this cant be affordable. My complaint is still with the ombudsman so fingers crossed, it would just be helpful to know what they class as 'affordable' and if they are being consistent with the loans they are choosing to clear.

Sorry I've left this thread for an incredibly long time but... SUCCESS!

 

My Wonga loan has been written off and I will also receive a small refund.

 

There is hope, you just have to fight for your rights. I am lucky that I am now in control of my finances and have a small amount of debt that will be cleared in a matter of months. Don't give up, the hardest bit is the initial tackling then all you do is have to let it play out. Your future self will thank you. I'm sure that could be worded much better, but you catch my drift.

 

Thanks CAG! :)

Happy days, mine has also been written off this week. After getting the ombudsman involved it turns out my loan was not affordable, even after Wonga had (very rudely) advised that it was using a whole lot of excuses that made no sense.

 

Id definitely recommend people to use the ombudsman and not to take Wonga's response as final.

Hi All,

 

Have had my debt written off :whoo:although I had to chase WONGA to confirm after it dissapeared from credit file. To be honest wasn't expecting it to be resolved so quickly.

 

I think the flood gates are about to open for others

To all affected above,

 

Please check your credit file I was affected however the default was not removed from my credit file then to add insult to injury they refused to remove the default.

 

See my threads I have taken a claim to court under the data protection act principle 4 accuracy.

 

For no good reason the defendant has delayed remedial action in removing the default, it took 7 months from the date of write off to get default removed. This was only once proceedings were commenced.

I too, on 4th April 2015, was told by wonga I would not afford the loan under new rules and so they bought it back from PRA in Feb 2015 and have wiped it from my credit files, which indeed they have.

 

I'd suggest anyone whose loan hasn't yet been written off/bought back to keep pursuing it.

 

I was a student at the time, but did have an income. It was probably affordable at the time ( I just ran into bother afterwards), though I've no idea what their criteria are.

Hi apologies for jumping on an old thread however you may be able to help me.

 

I received the write off email in Feb 2015. My account had been sold to PRA. I checked recently and the Wonga default is still registered s1 year later so is another from PRA for the same account! I have written to both companies to sort that however what i would like to know is this -Did Wonga remove your default entirely or did they just place it in a satisfied status with a zero balance?

 

Thanks
