    • Hello,   I've recently been awarded PIP for a degenerative condition that has worsened & I'm finding it entitles me to more help with things like council tax, but is there anything else i can now apply for or that i could be able to get more support with now I'm on PIP? 
    • Hi all,   I had an Lloyds bank overdraft in 2019 with the overdraft amount being £1350 maxed out by December 2019. I had left the account alone for two/three months as the overdraft fees were basically ruining me(Adding to the £1350 overdraft), i then received a letter from Lloyds asking me to phone them regarding this debt (This was January 2020). I had phoned Lloyds and we went through an expenditure on the phone and the outcome was i was to make payment of £30 towards the debt for 6 months and then after the 6 months is up they would get in touch with me to discuss further options. (There was mention in January that after the 6 months there was a possibility of a loan to pay of the remaining balance and then you make payments against the loan for however many years/months you choose.) It is worth noting that whilst i was making these payments they seized all interest on my account.    I have made every payment since January and have gradually managed to reduce my overdraft down to £1200. My problem is that the bank have phoned as it now at that stage for re-discussion, they have asked me to go through another expenditure and i panicked and over estimated things to make it look like i had less income; not loads but i was in a deficit of -£47. Due to this they said they could not allow me to take out a loan as it would only mean i was borrowing more to pay of debt which they would not allow. It then got passed over to another team and he said that i only had two options. Take a one month break with all interest etc stopped and this will allow me to seek financial advice elsewhere, or they said they would default the payment and i can then pay the minimum i can afford but the default would stay on my credit file for 6 years. He mentioned that they wouldn't take any money of me to help clear the debt as i had a deficit of -£47 and that shows i financially cannot afford to do that option. I have looked at the effects a default can make to your credit file and it impacts it tremendously.   Lloyds asked me how i cover my expenses every month and i mentioned that my Grandparents help me out sometimes with cash flow. So the gentleman at Lloyd's suggested going away and asking my grandparents if they could contribute money to me to help aid in my debt. so that he could go back to the original team(I think collections team) and say she now has this ____ He is due to phone me on Thursday (Tomorrow). I can afford to contribute probably £50-£80 a month but it would mean cutting down on fuel and some other expenses.   Its worth noting that i have a credit card with Nationwide maxed to £1000 too and this will soon be at the stage where they charge interest and i cannot afford to clear this either. Is this worth writing to them about?   Is there anyone that can advise me on what to do to help me pay as little as i can and avoid the default PLEASE, any help is really REALLY appreciated.   Thank you all in advance.
    • In terms of whether or not this is a private sale, clearly it will be for a judge to decide. It seems to me that we have somebody here who bred a litter of puppies and has sold several of them or all of them at probably around £1200 each. I think that is very different from selling your own private second-hand car to get what you can for it in order, for instance, to buy another one. Anyway it's for the judge to decide. In terms of whether or not the seller is aware of the defects – if they are a private seller – all it really means is that they are not subject to sale of goods legislation so that a purchaser in a private sale does not have specific protections. After that you have to fall back onto the common law of contract and once again I think that the liabilities are reasonably strict and I still think that even in a private sale if you bought something with defects which was represented to you as being without defects then you would probably have a good case. In this case, the dog has been accompanied by a health certificate and I think that is as good as any kind of representation dog is without defects. I think we are coming to an altogether more interesting issue. Apparently the dental defect with this puppy is observable and could have been detected by any reasonably careful examination carried out by a reasonable professional. But apparently also there is the possibility that there may be a more complicated problem which could be addressed by work costing up to £2000. What I'd like to know is whether this more complicated problem is as a result of the failure to spot the initial problem. Even if the initial problem had been spotted, with this still be a possibility that this more complicated work would be necessary? I suppose what I'm getting to his that at what point does one decide that a defect is an unacceptable defect or simply a risk that comes with purchasing all animals and therefore could still be considered as "satisfactory" because it would meet the reasonable expectations of any reasonable pet owner. To put it bluntly: are we saying here that if you buy an animal is less than genetically perfect, that you are purchasing defective goods and you are entitled to a refund? Does this mean that all animal traders are obliged to ensure that all the animals they sell are genetically perfect? This is dangerous territory: eugenics.  
    • a dn can be issued even on one default payment.
    • I think I still remain to be convinced that a court would not find the seller's offer to take the puppy back and give the OP a full refund both reasonable and acceptable.   Ignoring that this is the sale of a puppy, isn't this more akin to the private sale of a second-hand car?   I don't really know what the phrase:  "I recently bought a puppy from a home breeder. They have never breed dogs before and aren't a licensed business" means.  Is this a business to consumer sale, or is it simply the opportunistic private sale of puppies from a domestic litter?  I think the OP needs to establish this because it's not clear to me - yet.   AIUI, if I as a private individual privately sold, say,  a car with umpteen non-apparent faults or defects with it, but I was honestly unaware of them and could not be expected to be aware of them, then I'm not liable for any breach of contract when those faults and defects manifest themselves to the buyer a week later.  Isn't that what worried private sellers of cars are told here when aggrieved purchasers threaten to sue them?  It's not immediately obvious to me why this is necessarily any different - unless this is clearly a business to consumer sale.   The OP also says:  "Our puppy was sold as having passed a full health check from Vets4Pets", and so far as I can see this isn't disputed.  Unless that health check revealed the dental problem the OP is now complaining about, but the OP never was shown it (seems unlikely that the seller would mention it but not make the results available), then I think the seller may well be entitled to rely on it.  What more could they do to ascertain the health of the puppy?   I think this is not necessarily a clear-cut claim, and from the way the OP describes the breeder I think the question whether this is a consumer sale or a private sale may not have a black or white answer.     1.  The OP mentions following advice to buy puppies bred from a "home pet" (or similar such wording).  Not clear if this was the case here, but if it was, doesn't this suggest a private rather than consumer or trade sale?   2.  The OP also suggests that the health of the puppy was misrepresented, but is this necessarily correct?  They say the puppy was advertised as having had a "full health check", but that's not the same as saying the puppy was actually healthy.  And if it was a private sale, is the seller required to declare health problems they are aware of if they aren't specifically asked?

    • 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

It's now removed.

 

 

I agree with you on the mis selling,

 

 

there's a few differences between the proposal and what I actually got,

 

 

main ones being length of the loan, monthly repayments, and the fact the first one seems to be fixed

and the actual one being variable as there's no total amount repayable.

 

 

The mis selling claim will be tough one though as the broker is no more :(

 

I'm keen to scrutinise the actual agreement and hope I can get them on unfair charges and unfair relationship,

 

 

I owe more than I borrowed 9 years into the 12 year agreement!

SAR will be critical I expect.

 

don't fire any arrows till theoldrouge says to do so.

 

we don't want to waste arrows.

 

I'd go read up about irresponsible leaning

yes agree about mis-selling

but that's not as water tight as IL

statements are going to be the key

ill be requesting the SAR this week,

 

 

had a read through the template on here,

will probably add some extra bits in to make sure they don't misinterpret what I'm going to be asking for,

especially when it comes to contact with the broker!

 

 

I've read all 25 pages of welshpersons dealings with them, wonder what happened in the end?

 

 

If there's one thing I picked up from that is its that BF like to fight dirty!

Ok, here is doc 5 and 7 which have now been amended to remove my schoolgirl errors :doh:

Are we talking a financial charge or the charge over the property?

Ok thanks for that,

I will have to dig through my pile of letters they send me,

will be able to give more information when I get the SAR back which I will be posting on Thursday following my appointment with CAB.

 

As for the funding corporation,

I had a car on finance with them back in 2004,

due to job changes, gaps in employment etc I fell into arrears,

I did pay them (long gone now) but

 

 

during that time, I received a call from someone saying they were from the FC and cound give me a loan,

this leads me to believe that they sold my details to the broker to prey on my situation as this is what led to this dreaded loan,

 

 

as I said in my first post I did not go out and actively look for a loan,

I was contacted and groomed by a broker (who I believed to be FC at the time) to take this out to help my financial situation at the time,

 

 

they made it look like I would be better off taking this loan and my outgoings being lower.

Looking back now, it seems that they clearly changed this to Blemain in the 11th hour,

hence the 10yr fixed loan with FC (who after looking them up, only seem to do car finance)

is now a 12 yr rip my eyes out variable loan with BF..

.hence why I feel this was mis sold,

 

 

I also feel that the relationship with BF is unfair and the charges they have added are unfair.

 

 

I fell into financial difficulty again in 2008 after losing my job (sign of the times as this was the recession)

which has now been loaded onto this loan onto of the buildings insurance charges and the fact they send 2 of each letter as it is in joint names.

 

 

Honestly I could cry, its a wonder this firm hasn't got blood on their hands because there I times I could hoy myself infront of a bus to escape this nightmare!!

 

Hope that all made sense by the way!

Do you possibly remember whether you were given a copy of the agreement you signed to consider

 

at least 7 days prior to signing?

Hi,

 

 

looking at the docs I have

 

 

there's only the one copy of the actual agreement

 

 

yet I have multiple copies on the FC one.

 

 

I kept everything together in the file from the broker.

 

 

The FC one had a post it note on it saying "your copies" but there's only the one blemain one so I'm guessing the answer is no as I'd have kept it. Hope this helps :)

Ok, the first thing to say is imo you need to obtain much more information from the SAR before lodging a comprehensive formal complaint.

 

There are many things to be considered

 

What interest rates you were charged, whether you have been charged a "penalty interest rate"

 

whether their charges were in line with those stated on your agreement, whether they notified you of any variations

 

both of interest rates and charges, whether you have been treated in accordance with the FCA guidance in PRIN,

 

especially in regard to principle 6, in treating customers fairly etc etc, all of this can only be determined from your SAR

 

However one thing you may wish to discuss with CAB on the documentation that you have so far

 

Is the forms that you were left to consider prior to signing the agreement ( the pre contract information )

 

Which seems to be totally misleading.

 

The broker proposal was for a variable rate loan at a margin of 9.5pc over their base rate Money Lending Partners

 

The funding corp doc for a FIXED rate loan over 10 years which was what you were expecting

 

No doc whatsoever from Blemain to consider

 

You were totally confused on signing your agreement

 

All these proposals were for a loan of £11000 with a £500 broker fee, so that gives you some continuity in your argument

 

Anyway, just my thoughts for now, will be able to comment more thoroughly when we see your SAR narrative and statements

 

but of course if your CAB adviser is an expert with Blemain , please then be guided by them

Hi theolderouge, thank you for taking the time to go through this, I really appreciate it.

 

 

I will write down your points and take them with me this week!

 

 

I have read through a lot of threads re Blemain with interest yet when it gets to a crucial point and an outcome,

they disappear of the radar so it's very difficult to see what the outcome was to offer others some hope!

 

I for sure will be checking in regularly with updates and outcomes.

It seems that if I am eligible to claim for mis selling where the broker is concerned,

it's going to be a struggle as they no longer trade,

my hope is I can go down the route of unfair relationship

but I will definitely need my hand holding with this as I don't understand the law

and don't want to fire blanks at the beast and screw this up!

 

My ultimate goal is to get the loan balance reduced of charges, interest on charges, buildings insurance plus interest charged

and get it cleared and the charge removed by the end date,

all while allowing others in a similar position to me can check in and feel that they can do this too.

 

 

I've spent too long sucking this up because I never thought I would stand a chance of taking them on

but I'm so angry that I've been treated this way and will be flogging myself just to line the fat cats pockets.

 

 

I may get nowhere but I sure as hell am going to give it my best shot and thanks to reading other posts, as grim as it is, I'm not alone!

Hi all,

 

I've been to CAB and it wasn't was good as I'd hoped, they weren't even aware of SAR's.

 

 

I'm going to be submitting that this week and have the template (below) if anyone could advise if it's ok

and needs amending before I send I would be grateful for input.

 

I have spoken with the fscs today regarding mis selling by compass

but they're unable to help as they are only taking complaints re compass for ppi and 1st charge.

 

 

Compass went into default so if anyone knows if there is anywhere to turn in claiming against the mis selling I would be grateful for some info.

 

I have a lot to read from CAB who have kindly given me some info on what should be contained in CCA agreements

and what should be included so I will be cross referencing this with my agreement as a starting point,

 

 

if anyone would like me to scan and post this up just let me know and I will do that this week.

 

 

So in terms of making a complaint to Blemain,

I can't really draft it up until I have the SAR so that is my priority for now.

 

Hope to hear back soon from anyone with some valuable input.

Thank you for reading..

Clueless
