    • Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me understand what is going on with my mortgage lender. I fell into 4 months arrears but have a repayment arrangement in place for the mortgage amount & to clear the arrears this was arranged by another organisation who work on their behalf.   I have now received a court hearing date letter for 20th December for a possession hearing and I’m really confused as to why I’ve received this. I’ve contacted the organisation I arranged the repayment plan with but haven’t had a reply yet.   What is the best thing for me to do now to get this resolved? 
    • It is at the dealer that performed the service that identified the issue. I have not moved it, because even if I wanted to I came drive it now knowing what I do. I told the finance company sitting in the dealership reception.   I did not decide to take it for repair to a garage near me. I had no idea this was there until it was shown to me. I have also straight up asked them if they are happy where it is and they said yes. I have incurred no further costs outside the initial service it was due, that I have obviously no intention of claiming back.    to summarise facts: I purchased a 2015 car on HP for £31,980 in July from an independent dealer. The car has full main dealer service history and had done 36000 miles Car went in for its 6 year service at my nearest main dealer on 25th November When it came to change the spark plugs, coolant was found in the spark well for cylinder 7. I saw this myself. Could not definitely say what it was caused by (apart from the obvious - a crack) as no one had seen a similar fault so performed more diagnostic tests. I contacted finance company via their live chat informing them of issue- yes I have a transcript. Was told a complaint was raised and they would be in touch. I then went home. when I got home a form had been emailed to me to fill out that asked questions such as what I had done so far, where it is, what resolution I would like and other needless things like was it taxed or insured. I completed and forwarded the form Dealer diagnosed a crack in the cylinder heads water jacket the next morning, causing a slow leak under pressure. The dealer did not charge for the diagnosis. I asked the dealer to email me a report. I then forwarded this to the finance company with an updated version of the form sent the previous day. The following Tuesday I got an email saying they tried to phone me and asking, I quote “I understand you were in the process of getting a Diagnostic Report completed on the vehicle, please can you send this into us so we can forward this on to the dealer to investigate?” To which I sent it again, informing them I sent it the previous Friday  I contacted their customer services to ensure receipt, getting through to my case handler appears impossible. They said they had. Not having heard anything I finally managed to get through to my case handler last Thursday. They say they are waiting on the dealer. At this time I said I am raising it under my credit agreement with you to be told “ we do this everyday we need to hear from them” I get an email back, back peddling a bit saying  “Further to our conversation, we have forwarded the information and report you have sent in to the dealership <name>.  We are jointly liable with the dealership for the issues with the vehicle, however as we don't have a work shop to repair the vehicle, we give the dealership the responsibility and a single opportunity to repair the faults. Once the dealership have reviewed the information we have provided, and we receive a response from them, we will contact you to update you. ”   I then received a phone call where I was told they need their engineer to inspect the vehicle, I asked if that was necessary as they already have a report for a pretty simple fault. I was told yes. I then said I insist on being there for it. I also confirmed if the car is ok where it is. I followed up with an email summarising our call and haven’t heard anything since. I don’t want to be bent over here, nor do I want this to drag on. So I am not keen on waiting eons for the local guy from the pub to inspect it then get his mum to write a report which evidence points to being the quality delivered from the engineering company they use. I may be over cynical here but I’ve already had one crappy bit of news so why not more.   If I have to pay for it myself then try claim it back I’d probably go down a more legal route. What is a reasonable time frame to agree that the solution is to fix a crack in a lump of aluminium?    
    • This discussion has become rather stop start – mainly, I suppose, because of the difficulty you have had in getting quotes. However, could you just sum up here the cost of addressing all of these defects – and how much have you paid already?

Hi, just hoping for a little guidance on how to deal with this company.. i moved into my flat over a year ago and changed over all suppliers. I then started getting odd letters saying there was an error on national records and i needed to confirm my name and also the name of the previous tennant. This sounded dodgy to me so i ignored these letters, 2 in total.

 

I then received a letter from CCs saying their client British Gas had instructed them to revover debt of £930 from this address and if i am not the person who was living at the property on the dates specified, i should have answered their letter.. I feel like i should carry on ignoring these letters as I do not want to give them any of my personal details, is this the right thing to do?

 

Thanks for any help!

or client has authorised us to recover the full amount detailed above for ELECTRIC supplied to ADDRESS ADDRESS between 17/03/12 and 03/04/14.

 

Although we have written previously to give you the opportunity to tell us if you were not the occupier at the time and therfore not liable for this debt, we appear not to have heard from you.

If you were not the occupier and have simply forgotten to reply please call us so we may amend or records accordingly.

CCS are just hoping to spoof a mug.

 

 

theres nowt you owe and theres not anyone can do to you

nor I suspect the reverse.

Thanks - British Gas are already aware of this and told me the account was closed as it was an erroneous meter. Bad show on their part for selling on a 'debt' that actually no one owes. Shocking to think that people actually end up paying these kind of things :( - thanks for all your help

You should follow up with a complaint about their error causing you distress as well as a loss in dealing with it. Advise them that you will seek to involve the energy ombudsman, unless they can compensate you what you suffered. If people don't follow up with official complaints they will continue to get away with it.

We could do with some help from you.
