Hi,

I am new to this website so please could you help me out here.

 

 

I stupidly took a loan out against my car.

 

 

I was paying every month until I had to move quickly due to domestic violence.

 

 

in the madness of it all I forgot about the logbook loan, until Last Thursday morning at 04.00am

 

 

I got woke up by a neighbour banging on my door saying someone was pulling my car up onto the back of a flatbed wagon.

As I am disabled I got to the front door as quick as I could .

 

 

The guy who was putting my car onto the back of the truck asked me if I had £1500 I said no,

he then replied and said I am taking the car you will have to speak to the company who you took the loan out with

 

 

.i tried to explain I was disabled and a blue badge holder but he just said tough not my problem.

He said " you moved and didn't tell us, I have been here 3 times already"

 

 

I only go out in the day time and that is only for about an hour.

He had never been round as I asked the neighbours as he had told me he spoke to one of my neighbours last Tuesday night but I wasn't in.

I am not out when it is dark.

 

 

they have told me I have to find £870 in 7 days or I lose my car.

I have tried to explain my situation to auto money local office

and they just will not let me get a word in edge ways.

 

Is it right that they can come at that time in a morning and just drag my car off the driveway.

I have not been able to go out since he took my car away, as I can not get into town on the bus as I am in a wheelchair

and I need someone to push me.

I am now housebound.

 

Any help would be gratefully received.

its worthy to note the witness stuff there is out of date.

 

 

from my notes.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

logbook loan repossessions are not always legal,

.

if linked to a CCA agreement or if the BOS has not been registered with the high court.

.

If BOS registered then yes they can reposses,

but have to show registration and debt details.

Registration

A bill of sale can only be enforced if it was properly registered.

Since this is an expensive and difficult process,

it is rare that this actually happens.

However, failure to register the bill of sale renders it void,

and so renders any security on goods void.

.

Consequently, before allowing any creditor to gain possession of your goods,

ask to see a registered copy of the bill showing the supreme courts seal.

.

You can also call the national debt line, and ask them how to search the registry yourself.

.

Also a valid DN must be issued.

.

If linked to a CCA then can not reposses if on private property without a court order

( but can if on public road and under a third has only been paid ).

.

Over a third, they need a court order wherever it is.

Do you have a problem with a Logbook Loan?

With Citizens advice estimating that over 60,000 of these loans were taken out in 2014 alone

an increasing number a causing severe difficulty and distress for borrowers.

In this guide we explain what a logbook loan is, and how they work.

What you can do if you have a repayment problem,

and what you can do if you have unknowingly bought a car with a logbook loan attached.

Three golden rules for Logbbok Loans

1)No matter how desperate you are to purchase a car, or raise cash,

NEVER consider this type of Finance

These loans are designed purely for the benefit of the lenders.

With APRs of 400+%, little consumer protection, and aggressive debt collectionicon practices

they should be avoided at all costs.

2)When purchasing a used car from whatever source,private or trade,

ALWAYS do a FULL GENUINE HPI CHECK costing around £20,

these come with a guarantee against any form of existing finance, including lbl's

3)If you have any problem with a Logbook Loan,

your first step is ALWAYS to check that the Bill Of Sale has been registered

with the High Court. You can do this here-

to check if registered

You may read on the internet that your BOSicon will be void if witnessed by your lbl lender

Since the OFT( as was) lost the attestation case on appeal by 2 to1 this is NOT the case

full details here http://www.bailii.org/cgi-bin/markup...method=boolean

Logbook loans are a form of credit dating back to the Victorian era,

derived from the 1878/1882 Bills Of Sale Acts, with terms and conditions to match in many cases.

Problems are manyfold from extortionate charges by lenders for calling a customer,

to repossessions where owners have been left at the side of a busy road,

unable to get to work, and even sexual harassment via debt collection.

Poor practices abound, unsurprising when there is no incentive for lenders

to ensure their customers understand the terms or can afford the repayments.

In fact the very nature of this form of finance could be seen to encourage bad behaviour

– why carry out affordability checks if a single missed payments means you get to keep

the money and takeaway the car?

How does it work?

When you take out a logbook loan you will be asked to hand over your vehicle’s logbook

or vehicle registration document, which proves you are the registered keeper of the vehicle.

You’ll also have to sign a credit agreement and a form called a ‘bill of sale’.

This means the lender now owns your vehicle on a temporary basis

but you are still able to use it so long as you meet all loan repayments.

These documents are recognised by law in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

but are not used in Scotland.

The law only recognises a bill of sale if the lender registers it with the High Court.

If it’s not registered, the lender must get a court’s approval to repossess your vehicle.

You should check if the bill of sale is registered.

 

What you should do if you have a repayment problem

1) check your Bill Of Sale is registered as above

2) the lender must send you a default notice which complies with the requirements of s87(1)cca1974

allowing you fourteen clear days to remedy any default (which can be after one missed payment)

You should , if your lender will not negotiate a reduced payment, straight away on receipt of the dn

look to take out a time order. This gains you the protection of the court, which can look into the overall loan--

https://www.nationaldebtline.org/EW/...t/Default.aspx

 

What you can do if you have purchased a car with an existing logbook loan

.

If you receive a letter threatening to repossess the car or an enforcement officer

turns up at your home to take it, you may not be able to stop them.

.

•ask to see proof of their identity and their authorisation to take the car

•ask to see the bill of sale document – they have to show you this if you ask for it

•if you feel threatened by how an enforcement officer is behaving, call the polic

•ask for written confirmation of what has been taken

•get the contact details for the logbook loan company.

.

If the lender has taken your car, you can try to get it back

and reclaim your money from the seller.

However, this can be a costly and time-consuming process and is not guaranteed to succeed.

.

If you want to get the car back, you could pay off the outstanding loan

and then take the person who sold you the car to court, to try to get your money back.

.

If you just want to get your money back, you can take the person who sold you the car to court.

Always get independent advice before you decide to take someone to court.

.

Some lenders are members of the consumer crediticon Trade Association (CCTA),

which has a code of practice covering logbook loans.

The code of practice says the lender must register the logbook loan on a register,

so it will show up when you carry out a history check on the car.

It also says they must obey certain rules when they repossess a car.

.

If you are unhappy with the way a logbook loan lender or its enforcement officers have behaved,

find out whether they are a member. If so, you can complain directly to the CCTA.

However this code is regularly ignored

.

http://www.ccta.co.uk/content/our-code.aspx

.

Finally both the Financial Conduct Authority and the Law Commission are investigating

Logbook Lending and the associated legislation,

full details here--

.

http://www.fca.org.uk/firms/firm-typ.../logbook-loans

.

http://lawcommission.justice.gov.uk/...ls-of-sale.htm

.

for anyones info, you must act immediately on receipt of a default notice

.

What you should do if you have a repayment problem

.

1) check your Bill Of Sale is registered as above

.

2) the lender must send you a default notice which complies with the requirements of s87(1)cca1974

allowing you fourteen clear days to remedy any default (which can be after one missed payment)

.

You should , if your lender will not negotiate a reduced payment, straight away on receipt of the default notice look to take out a time order. This gains you the protection of the court, which can look into the overall loan--
