    • Just to update on this, received the anticipated reply from Packlink. Still chasing hermes every week.    
    • So I gather that you sent some parcels using DPD. They arrived in an apparently damaged state so that the items can't be used. The items were returned to you and you had to refund your customer. You are now out of pocket to the tune of the entire value of the items or at least the cost of repairs. You used DPD on some kind of account/credit system so that in principle you owe the money – but you are withholding the money because they didn't carry out their contractual obligations correctly and also they caused you loss. They are now threatening to sue you and they have sent you a letter of claim. I understand that you didn't take any photographs of the damaged parcels or of the items – on the basis that you weren't informed that that would be necessary. I understand also that you have had phone calls with them – but you probably have never recorded the courts so you have no evidence of what has been said. Is this all correct? You haven't told us what the items are and whether they are still in your possession. You haven't told us whether the damage to the items makes them a total loss or if they can be repaired. You haven't told us anything about values of the items or of the cost of repairs. We need this information. Also, I hope that you won't mind too much when I say that your failure to take photographs on the basis that nobody had told you to do it – shows a certain level of naïveté and your lack of evidence may become a problem if they do issue proceedings and you have to defend yourself. I suggest that it is axiomatic of any kind of dispute of this nature that you would start acquiring and storing evidence from the outset – and photographs are certainly going to be the minimum kind of evidence that you would require. You also haven't told us the value of the invoice sum which you are withholding. Although your post is pretty long, it seems to be pretty scant on some of the essential information. If you could please respond to these questions and then we will try to give you advice as to your position and the next step.

    • 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

Hello Everyone

 

I am hoping to serif anyone can advise me please ?

 

Background - credit card debt £20K, CCJ obtained forthwith, Interim then Full Charging Order granted

all in 2011 by Restons

 

I didn't attend CCJ hearing but did attend Charging Order hearing.

 

No repayment terms were set at CCJ or Charging Order hearing.

 

I have so far repaid back £4K so debt outstanding is now £16K. Not heard anything from Restons in 4yrs.

 

My question -

 

Recently had a letter from Restons wanting a full I&E etc. They say it's to make sure affordable and realistic payments are being made. If not sent to them though, order for sale can be forced they said.

 

As no repayment amount was set by court can I apply to court (even though it was 4 years ago) to get a Variance Order so I can set a fixed monthly amount rather than panicking and paying more than I can afford.

 

The logic behind this being if I have a set amount made by court and stick to it then there should be no reason for them to try force an order of sale.

 

Does my rambling make sense ?

 

Thank you for listening.

Do you have a copy of the original Judgment? Did the original Judgment contain a Money Order ? (eg instructions for repayment) and was there any reference to them adding interest to the Judgment Debt ?

 

I think it might be very difficult for Restons to obtain an order for sale if you have been making payments toward this. However, I will flag your thread for those who have more knowledge in this area.

 

Have they said in their letter, by what date you need to respond ? Whatever you do, DO NOT telephone them.

£20k credit card debt..blimey, what one card?

 

 

did you ever investigate getting an SAR off to the original creditor?

might be lots to reclaim here inc PPI?

 

 

who was the claimant on the CCJ?

the original creditor or a debt buyer?


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

Thanks for your replies everyone.

 

The original CCJ was obtained fairly I believe. No PPI to reclaim sadly. It was a HFC credit card.

 

No money order, no repayment terms. It was a CCJ which was forthwith. As I couldn't pay straight away it was a forthwith CCJ which then resulted in the Charging Order Final.

 

No arrangement to pay was mention st the Charging Order hearing either.

 

Along with family helping I've managed to repay varying amounts back over the years.

 

I'm wanting now to try fix a monthly amount and then stick to it so i get that protection. I thought about trying to apply for a variance order to the Original judgement. I wasn't sure if there was a time limit after the judgement to do that ?

Also can you even apply once a charging order is granted ?

 

I've got a week to send a I&E to them or else order of sale. Seems unfair when I've repaid back £4K and not heard from them for 4 years.

 

If I send an I&E I can only afford £50 month. My Family have been chipping in to make it £250 month but can't help forever.

 

Thanks everyone

court form n245 (with a court fee unless fee remission) i think wld be appropriate? court will send a copy of yr app'n to the claimant. if claimant agrees, order granted. if they dont, then court will decide in the circs.

i think a later inst order wld still be applicable re s93?

do correct if wrong.

TCE Act = Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act

 

but, as dx suggests, double check that all is in order/no ppi etc.

Hello Everyone

 

 

I have just looked at Form N245 and think it may be the wrong form. At the CCJ or Charging Order hearing no mention of paying back was discussed. Therefore I cannot complete N245 as I haven't an original order to vary the payments on. Does this make sense ?

 

 

I am wanting to set an order in the first place if that is possible or should I contact Restons with their I&E and see if they accept my offer first. Just scared to ring them that's all.

 

 

I'd rather a court decided rather than them as they frighten me.

 

 

Thanks

Hello Andy

 

 

Thanks for helping. I'm getting a bit muddled now !

 

 

Do I need to ask the court to vary the payment method / amount on the original judgement ? Is that still N245 ?

 

 

Can I still do that after 4 years ?

 

 

Thanks

Thanks andyorch, I understand what you are saying now. The original Judgment was a forthwith Judgment and it is that which needs application to be varied :)

Ah Thanks guys. That's what I mean !

 

 

Yes it was a forthwith CCJ then went to Charging Order Full.

 

 

I want to try and vary the forthwith order to fixed monthly amounts.

 

 

Is it possible after 4 years considering the debt is now a charging order ?

 

 

Thanks

Basically you want to change the Forthwith to a monthly payment...(although unofficially you have been paying monthly) this will then have courts approval.Once its all agreed and sealed and providing you never miss a payment ....an application for Order of Sale is impossible.

Thanks for your time Andy that's exactly what I am trying to do.

 

 

Do you think the fact that I have been paying 'unofficially' to reduce the debt will look positive and help in my case ?

 

 

What would be the course of action if Restons reject the offer and overrule it. I cant see them agreeing to it as they know it means they cant force a sale if I stick to it. They loose out.

If you base your proposal on roughly what you pay now...how can it be rejected...assuming the I&E substantiates your proposed offer?

That's going to be the problem Andy. My family have been helping me out and chipping in where they can so the amount I have been paying is more than I can repay on my own. They cant help forever and its my debt not theirs.

That's why I want to vary the amount to something I can realistic pay based on my I&E.

Would I just tell the judge that family have been helping hence a higher amount has been paid ?

If that's the case ...complete the I&E and offer an affordable realistic payment...if they reject it the court will set one...if it moves to an hearing you can then explain as to why the previous payments were not a true reflection

Thanks Andy I'll do exactly that.

 

 

In your experience, would it be considered a good thing to try and sort the monthly payment with Reston's first ?

 

 

(Although I am thinking by doing that I still don't get the protection further down the line from the court setting it etc)

In a word....no...they will forever hold you to ransom and keep requesting a review of your financial position.

 

Please complete the I&E contained within the N245

the fact that you have been making payments regularly will definitely go in your favour if there is a hearing.

You do need to base your repayment on schedule on money YOU can afford out of your own disposable income and not to include the financial help you have received from family.

 

You should make it clear that to date, family have been helping but this is no longer available to you.

 

I have attached an I&E form below - it is one that is used by CAG for those people facing repossession, so is acceptable to the court.

 

Unless you can record the call and are confident in speaking with Restons, then you should put your offer in writing - send it by tracked method and continue to make payments based on your I&E

 

[ATTACH]60276[/ATTACH]

 

Although personally, I would much rather make an application to the court that way you have their protection of your offer.

The family stop paying - then no court can order them to pay for you./

 

 

Restons are bullies and to be honest one day trouble on DCA/Debt purchasers can be seen if the Government do not change their rough attitude to debtors and let Bankers off scot free, can see it coming.
