Hi...

.new member..

 

 

..I have spent some considerable time looking at Consumer Forum

and have followed various threads

and used the advice posted to write to

Sainsburys Bank,

Halifax bank,

HSBC,

Barclaycard,

 

 

asking for CCA

 

 

I enclosed the postal order for £1,

 

 

my letters dated 25th January 2009.

 

 

to date no reply apart from a Formal Notice from Halifax.

 

 

I get the feeling I should have started a thread back in January and followed advice from the begining.

 

 

However I hope it is not to late to ask what is the next step that I should take

as I am keen to find out if the CCAs are unenforcable.....

 

 

.....HELP

Hello and Welcome, firstship.

 

Your right, starting new threads for each of your debt is the way to go ;)

It's not to late, do just that and keep them updated, there's always someone around to help you out.

 

It just makes it so much easier if the debts are all on their own thread.

 

If you need a hand with anything just shout.

 

Regards.

 

Scott.

My HSBC thread been very quiet,

 

 

sent CCA1974s77/78 back in January 2009,

 

 

sent default letter Feb 15th 2009,

 

 

NO REPLY..

 

 

.Letter arrived today June 10th 2009.as follows//

 

 

/// We write further to your letter dated 15 February 2009 and apologise for the delay.

 

 

Regrettably we are not at this time able to comply with the above request.

Whilst we will make efforts to comply with your request ,

we are not able to give an estimate of when we will be able to do so.

 

 

We understand that until we do this we will be unable to take action in the courts to seek recovery of the debt.

 

 

However your legal liability for the outstanding debt is not in doubt and we will continue to look to you to honour that debt.

 

 

We are obliged to report to credit reference agencies any failure to repay such debt

and this remains unaffected by whether we have or have not at the relevant time complied

with the requirements of sections 77/78 of the CCA 1974..

 

 

..signed Senior Manager HSBC.......

 

 

....I find this letter from HSBC beyond belief,

do I ask them to read the act,

and supply further their interpretation of the ACT..

 

 

..do I send a letter listing those items they cannot enforce whilst in Default..

 

 

..Do i press the point in their letter regarding Credit Reference agencies.......

 

 

........ANY THOUGHTS ON WHICH WAY TO GO WITH THIS LETTER....

 

 

....Thanks FIRSTSHIP

Hi,

 

I'm afraid it's standard procedure from these so called responsible companies.

 

They say you had the money so we can stuff your credit file even if we don't actually have your permission via a fully valid CCA. The worst thing is, is that the ICO tend to agree with them.

 

The only way I have seen so far is to force the issue and take them to court but beware, they do tend to look that little bit harder when push comes to shove.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Hi firstship , welcome to the forum :)

 

To avoid being at their whims I think it's probably better to push them a bit - force them to admit whether or not they have the documents you're looking for .... although I do take silver's point that in rare cases they may come up with them at the 11th hour......

 

There is a letter on this link which may help :

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/legal-issues/110742-bls-no-cca-but.html#post1143624

 

I also came across this recently which I thought was quite a good way of forcing their hand ........

 

"PLEASE NOTE that unless otherwise stated by yourselves and if the above documents are NOT provided, it will be CONFIRMED that you are unable to reproduce/provide in any way shape or form any copies of the above requested documents. You are reminded that you have a duty to inform me if you do not have the above documents. This is confirmed in High Court Law - Ezsias v Welsh Ministers - [2007] All ER (D) 65 (Dec)"

 

Incidentally remember , if you sign anything , make sure you put a couple of crosses behind it so it can't be 'lifted' - not that I'm suggesting for a minute that they'd do that :rolleyes:, but some less reputable firms have been known to try it ....

Well , they have complied with your request and told you they can't produce firstship - that's a result !

 

And they've even taken the trouble to notify FOS for you - how nice of them ........

 

I can't see how this can be a waiting game being played by them .... without an agreement this debt is unenforceable ..... which means it's still there , but they can't chase you for it , because they can't prove you owe it .

But watch it - :eek: in a few weeks time they'll maybe pass it to a DCA (although they're not supposed to , because it's in Dispute ....) and the DCA will chase you until you tell them to back off because it's unenforceable - and in dispute until they formally abandon it ......

 

Like you I can't believe they said what they did in #3 about still being able to report you to CCAs for non-payment of a debt they cannot prove exists :eek:

 

It may be better to try heading them off at the pass with a letter something like :

 

"

You have failed to comply with a lawful request for a true, signed copy of the said agreement and other relevant documents mentioned in it, failed to send a full statement of the account and failed to provide any of the documentation requested.

 

Consequentially any legal action you pursue will be averred as both UNLAWFUL and VEXATIOUS.

 

Furthermore I shall counterclaim that any such action constitutes unlawful harassment.

 

Please note you may also consider this letter as a statutory notice under section 10 of the Data Protection Act to cease processing any data in relation to this account with immediate effect.

 

This means you must remove all information regarding this account from your own internal records and from my records with any credit reference agencies.

 

Should you refuse to comply, you must within 21 days provide me with a detailed breakdown of your reasoning behind continuing to process my data.

 

It is not sufficient to simply state that you have a ‘legal right’; you must outline your reasoning in this matter and state upon which legislation this reasoning depends.

 

Should you not respond within 14 days I expect that this means you agree to remove all such data.

 

Furthermore you should be aware that a creditor is not permitted to take ANY

Action against an account whilst it remains in dispute.

 

The lack of a credit agreement is a very clear dispute and as such the following applies.

 

* You may not demand any payment on the account, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you.

* You may not add further interest or any charges to the account.

* You may not pass the account to a third party.

* You may not register any information in respect of the account with any credit reference agency.

* You may not issue a default notice related to the account.

 

 

I reserve the right to report your actions to any such regulatory authorities as I see fit.

You have 14 days from receiving this letter to contact me with your intentions to resolve this matter which is now a formal complaint.

 

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.

 

I look forward to hearing from you in writing.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Remember, print your name, don't sign.

There's a letter for that too if you need it , firstship :)

 

Have you considered reporting them to the FOS for the statement they made in that letter in #3 ? . That is blatant flouting of the rules ...... in writing too .... they really are either arrogant or simply plain stupid !

JM will do just that report them to the FOS the more I think about it the more it troubles me that its yet another case of Banks bending the rules or putting their interpretation on CCA1974 requests.If you get time look at my thread.....natwest v firstship.Which is a great result but more important the Natwest Bank have put in writing what the Bank are required to do on receipt of a CCA1974...............thanks agin for your help next letter FOS compaint against HSBC,

Well done firstship - way to go ! :D Don't hold your breath waiting for FOS to give you a result , but at least you've started the ball rolling ........ and yes please , keep us posted ......

 

Once you get a case no . from FOS don't forget to quote it on any correspondence to HSBC ...just to remind them it's definitely 'In Dispute':rolleyes:

 

I'm afraid I can't get enough magnification on your letter from Natwest - can you try reposting it please(maybe via photobucket ) and let me know if you manage it ...... :)

Hi firstship

 

If you've got it in writing that they can't produce the agreement , I'd let 'em sweat ....... they can't take you to court or chase you for any money which they can't prove you owe them ......

 

If it's not an admission in writing , wait and see what they come back with from your latest letters - come back and we can take it from there ..... but basically ...... no agreement ... the alleged debt is unenforceable ...... :)

 

Sorry first ship, I should have read further back .:oops:.... I think you've done all you can .... for now .... let 'em sweat .....

:D
