Removal of a default notice applied by HSBC

Recommended Posts

Correct...but normally you are sent initial warning that it will be recalled and are offered the opportunity to make proposals for repayment...this is usually 14 days..if you make no response a Notice served under Sections 76(1) and 98(1) of the CCA1974....once this is issued you then have a further 14 days to make payment

Thank you.

 

So they were not at all accurate in stating they'd fulfilled their obligations under the CCA 1974? They should have sent notices under Sections 76 (1) and 98 (1) and given me more of an opportunity to come to an agreement with them?

 

I'm aware the "Principles for the Reporting of Arrears, Arrangements and Defaults at Credit Reference Agencies", states that

 

"The lender must have notified you of their intention to register a default against you at least 28 days before doing so, in order to give you time to make an acceptable payment or reach an agreement with them on an arrangement. "

 

It also states

 

"If an arrangement is agreed (see Principle 3 above), a default would not normally be registered unless the terms of that arrangement are broken. "

 

So as the bank had agreed to my repayments it should not have subsequently registered a default?

 

I'll check the paperwork but I don't recall any mention of Sections 76 (1) and 98 (1)

 

I've noticed that there appears to be later versions of the CCA (2006?) Why is it that they don't appear to have replaced the 1974 version?

CCA2006 was only amendments to CCA1974.

Many thanks for your response. Really helpful.

 

I'm not clear on the relationship between the CCA and the guidelines on filing defaults ("Principles for the Reporting of Arrears, Arrangements and Defaults at Credit Reference Agencies"). Do both apply in the case of registering a default against overdraft arrears?

 

Should this situation also be covered by the FCAs Consumer Credit Sourcebook which includes the following in CONC 7 : Arrears, default and recovery(including repossessions)

 

Section 7.3 : Treatment of customers in default or arrears (including repossessions): lenders, owners and debt collectors

 

 

7.3.6 - Where a customer is in default or in arrears difficulties, a firm should allow the customer reasonable time and opportunity to repay the debt

 

7.3.8 - An example of where a firm is likely to contravene Principle 6 and ■ CONC 7.3.4 R is where the firm does not allow for alternative, affordable payment amounts to repay the debt 7.3.8FCA due in full, where the customer is in default or arrears difficulties and the customer makes a reasonable proposal for repaying the debt or a debt counsellor or another person acting on the customer's behalf makes such a proposal.

 

7.3.9 - A firm must not operate a policy of refusing to negotiate with a customer who is developing a repayment plan

I'm exploring other avenues to resolve this now including BCOBS for which there seems to be very little guidance available. Is this an effective route?

 

I'm also aware of the following but not sure how they all fit together in the context of my situation.

Well all the above are applicable...but lets run this back you did actually default or failed to service the overdraft for whatever reason and therefore the creditor must register any default as per the ICO guidlines and Credit Agency reporting.If you had settled the amount in full in time before the expiry of the notice then you have case.

 

If they did not serve the effective Default/Demand properly...you have a case.

 

Making a lump sum and further payments.....was not clearing the default by the statuary time stated...no case.

 

Asking them to not register a default and you will make various payments.......no case.

 

Registering the default later than the actual default /demand time imposed...possibly a case...but you wont remove the default it would simply be adjusted by date.

I believe the following details in the Final Demand are incorrect

 

The Default Notice referred to was never sent (It has never been provided in any SAR response) - This was deeply confusing.

 

I understand that a Notice served under Sections 76(1) and 98(1) of the CCA1974 must be issued, but is this one? Other examples I've seen clearly state what they are and include reference to Sections 76(1) and 98(1) of the CCA1974 in the header.

 

The Final Demand letter provided 18 days of notice for full repayment or an arrangement. The 'Principles for the Reporting of Arrears, Arrangements and Defaults at Credit Reference Agencies' guidelines which I believe apply, and they are obliged to follow, state 28 days notice is required.

 

The 'Help is available' section of the letter states they would try to work with me to come to an arrangement. They refused to. Subsequent correspondence on this point from HSBC stated only a full repayment would have been satisfactory. This completely contradicts what the Final Notice letter said and is the cause of the issuing of the default.

 

Further thoughts on this greatly appreciated.

    • hi, i'm kind of hoping someone might be able to help me out with this issue, i don't have money to go and see a solicitor so i'm doing it myself,,  i recently looked up my credit file on a web site and was shocked to see a CCJ, i had no idea what it was about so i called up the court and they gave me the company it was a water bill from a house that i never lived at, it was in fact my ex partners home where she moved after we split up, i moved out and on to a friends flat for about six months and she, my ex, went to live in margate with our two kids, i stayed on london for the next six months while i was awaiting a transfer from work and eventually found a flat near to where she lived so i could she the kids, i asked her if i could have my bank account registered at her house as i didn't trust the comunal post box, she said it would be ok, then after about 7 months my ex said she wanted to go back to london and made a mistake moving there, she left the house after seven months, and she said she never got a water bill while she was there, the water company apparently sent me bills to my exs new place back in london, addressed to me, i'm now living with a new partner, and knew nothing about it all, i had enforcement "men" threatened to come into my house and take my stuff, i went to court and got a start of the writ with the intention of arguing my case, mainly being that i didn't live there, and i'm not responsible for the bills, i have some letters with my address on from the time in question but what would i need to conclusively prove to the judge that i never lived at her address, she has even written a letter to the judge stating that she was responsible and that i didn't live there, but i'm sure it's not going to be enough, the water company won't answer my emails, i've called up on the phone and got nothing except they are "looking at it now" it's been two months, they won't respond, any ideas or help would be appreciated

    • i'd p'haps concentrate on your claim only...IMHO? you are very green and don't seem yet to be taking in or understanding a lot of the necessary information. stop using the 'internet'   only use the cag Google custom search top right here pcn claimform.   the 2 or 3 line std defence on just about any PCN claimform thread is ALL YOU NEED.   as for the rest its not for you to act as policeman toward the landowners..not your problem   yes as already advised before the claim prove VCS have no contract no PP etc etc but the results of that will be for your witness statement IF it gets that far...  
    • the issue here now is the CCJ trumps the need for any paperwork technically.. .they have judgement..too late for paperwork wriggles

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
