    • Here’s the agreement I got sent by Halifax’s with the SARs would link have what they need if Halifax send them this ? 2020-08-15 15.10.24 (Merged) copy-1 copy.pdf
    • Hi,   I've been summoned into court next month for getting caught using my younger sisters oyster card. But they also analysed her card and saw that ive used it 149 times other than that. I'm only being chargerd with the one offence and am having to pay fines and i can chose to plead guilty or not guilty.    HOWEVER the letter states "The schedule gives paticulars of 149 offences, which we suspect you of commiting but have not been charged with. If you pead guilty in person an are found guilty of any offences with which you have been charged you can, before any sentence is passed, admit all or any of the matters in the attatched schedule and ask the court to take them into considerations. This in turn will result in not being subsequenly charged with any of these matters"   I have heard that you can write a letter to try to settle out of court but who do i send the letter to as there is no contact on the summons letter?

    • I purchased a Macbook pro from very.co.uk but after 2 weeks is stopped working completely, I talked to very.co.uk electrical support and they agreed it couldn't be fixed and asked me to return the item. I returned the item and very.co.uk refunded my cc.   However I then received a letter stating that I needed to remove the MacBook from my apple account so that the machine could be accessed by very.   I ignored this at first as I thought it was a mistake as they had refunded me. However then I received a bill from them, they had added the cost of the Macbook to my account credit account on very!   I removed the Macbook from my apple account as requested and messaged them via my account to tell them.   They have now asked for a screenshot of me removing the Macbook from my Apple account, how can I provide a screenshot of an action, one that I've already performed too?   I sent a screenshot of my current devices that are registered to my account, however I can see this running as I purchased a replacement Macbook from another store and it has the same name as the returned one, I am concerned as I have an outstanding balance on my account and am being asked for payment.   There appears to be no method of talking to anyone useful at very.co.uk or of getting anything resolved very easily, they do not appear to have a complaints phone number and only provide a couple of options for complaint subjects online 'Warranty complaint', 'PPI complaint', pr Insurance', I would have thought they were obliged to provide better access than that for customers?   Has anyone had experience of dealing with very.co.uk? what's the best way I can get this resolved?    Can they recharge me for a product that I have returned, and that is faulty?   What can I do if they refuse to accept the screenshot I supplied as proof that I have removed the machine from my Apple account?

    • 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

After all s127(3)-(5) does not give a Judge any discretion at all for an agreement executed before 6th April 2007 as if the agreement fails to comply with sec 61(1)(a) CCA 1974 then the Court has no power to enforce whatsoever as established in Diamond v Lowell, Wilson v First County Trust, London North Securities v Meadows.

 

As already stated the provisions of sec 127 (3-5) were repealed by the Consumer Credit Act 2006 but for agreements entered into before 6th April 2007 the provisions of sec 127(3 to 5) still have effect.

 

Thanks for your comments Andy. I've been reading a lot on this subject, as you can imagine, and there seems to be a bit of disagreement about unenforceability under s61. My understanding is that for an agreement to fail to comply with s61(1)(a) the defendant has to make a positive assertion about the original agreement, not the reconstituted agreement. The reasoning goes that a recon can be 'repaired' by correcting the missing or incorrect information, but judgement cannot be enforced whilst the claimant is in breach of s78, whereas the original agreement was what it was and cannot be 'repaired' if it is shown to have been flawed at the time it was signed.

 

Since I am not in the position to make any positive assertions about the original agreement, I must rely on a breach of s78 to prevent a judge from enforcing the judgement. As I said earlier however, this may be merely delaying the inevitable.

 

I will have a look at the cases you mention tomorrow, but in the meantime that seems to be what I have read, or am I missing something?

Your assertions would be correct..its a complicated circle that your trying to square.....and if your agreement was post April 2007 would be a lot more simple...throw in the mix that yours is pre 2007 then sec 127 (3) - (5) applies along with s61(1)(a)

 

I think the only way to simplify it it to remove the reconstituted version with regards to enforcement and treat it only as compliance to a section 78 request...and from what you state even that is invalid as a copy and does not satisfy section 78.


We could do with some help from you.

Hello everyone.

 

I had my hearing today and the claim was dismissed.

 

The reasons for dismissal were:

 

No evidence that a default notice had ever been served.

A non-compliant reconstituted agreement

No statement of account showing how the amount claimed had been arrived at

 

I can't thank you enough for the help and guidance you have given me over the past few months. I will of course be making a donation to the site to help ensure you continue to offer guidance and assistance to others in the future.

 

Thanks again!

:) have some mercy dx. :)

 

as said in wilson (HL),

'Parliament's intention in enacting section 127(3) of the 1974 Act was to make a loan, made under a regulated agreement, unenforceable in certain events.

The courts cannot defeat that intention by allowing some alternative means of recovery.'

 

that aside, seems was mainly re cca request non compliance, and the dn. well done.


IMO

:-):rant:

Brill result ToS. As an extra perhaps you could say of the three reasons given which you thought was given the most prominence if indeed any was. Presumably been unable to show how they had arrived at the figure they were claiming is pretty much a fundamental flaw in any case.

The judge said the issue with the default notice 'was enough to strike out the claim on its own'.

 

 

I pointed out the flaws in the recon, which were the incorrect address and also the incorrect creditor name and address (!).

 

 

I The judge obviously took those flaws very seriously, and the claimant was unable to offer anything to counter.

 

 

I think the statement of account issue was just the icing on the cake, but nevertheless it was a factor in the decision.

 

The claimant asked for an adjournment to enable him to serve a default notice and to obtain statements to bolster the claim, but the judge (quite rightly) denied this on the grounds that HPH2 should have been better prepared to fight this hearing.

 

In short, I think I have been gifted this dismissal due to the claimant's incompetence.

I'm not sure if it would have gone this way if it hadn't been for the multiple failures on their part.

 

I read somewhere a few days ago that 'the devil is in the detail' in these cases.

I think my experience yesterday has shown that to be very true.
