    • Hi Sweet and welcome to CAG   Are you willing to disclose the employer in this case ?
    • I was the manager of an off license. We reopened on mon 30th, I received a very large delivery which we weren’t expecting (and I wasn’t told about until 2hrs before by my line manager) all managers received a text from regional manager which stated when deliveries are coming in shops are to be closed. He didn’t ring this info in, I just read the text.   When I saw how big del was (completely covered the floor, could barely move around it) I kept my shutters closed and proceeded to pack delivery away. The store remained closed and we lost 5hrs trading time. I didn’t seek permission from manager to do this, with the current safety precautions enacted (only allowed 1 customer in at a time as manadated by HQ) I didn’t feel this could be safely achieved with 3 members of staff in and all the stock everywhere.  regional manger calls into shop at 4:50, hits roof that it’s closed and storms out of shop after exclaiming I didn’t have the authority to keep shop closed.   Fast forward 1 1/2 weeks later today regional manager comes in at 4pm with prepared questions, I answer truthfully stated I didn’t think it was safe I had the best interests of business at heart that I had turned up for work every day since this incident and nothing had been said. He said that they will examine this information and can come back for more evidence if needed.    He goes away again and at 5:59 (my shift finished at 6) he came back in saying they’d examined all the evidence and that their decision was dismissal, I was to gather my things and there’d be a letter in the post with information should I wish to appeal.  quite a shock.   I will see what this letter states as their reasons I committed gross misconduct, I am a bit at a loss as to what I specifically did to be deemed gross misconduct.   I’ve worked for them for 10years, taken 2 days off sick in that entire time and had a faultless record   I’m just flabbergasted they’d immediately sack me for something which happened in unprecedented times when all I was trying to do was keep myself and my staff safe and safely make their store presentable and adequately accessible for all.   Any thoughts on the above? Obviously this is all too fresh as it happened only hours ago 
    • Hi KL1 and welcome to CAG.   You say the buyer contacted you saying, "...... he had seen it cheaper somewhere else and wanted to cancel the sale."   Do you have this in writing and, if so, in what format ?   It would be useful if you could tell us more about the item you sold.    
    • I wanted to report a success against UKPS that started in Dec 2018 and was concluded today.  I did do a bit of reading through this site for guidance though so thanks for that!    in Dec 2018 a family member reversed onto a private road in Coventry and waited about 1 minute or so to collect their partner.  Meanwhile the owner was loitering and waiting to catch anyone on his land with photos.  2 photos were taken about 40 seconds apart.   With my help I disputed the charge stating that the driver had not "parked" but had only stopped momentarily to pick up a passenger.  I did not state at any point who the driver was.   UKPS from Leamington Spa were trying to enforce this and insisted on the charge of £60 + £100 being paid.  I sent a 2nd letter confirming the position of the 1st letter and that no further letters would be sent.   4 threatening letters were sent from Debt Recovery Plus and Zenith Collections and duly ignored.  The last kindly offered to settle for £136!    Then a letter from Gladstones Sols threatening the same was also sent, and mentioned Beavis vs Parking Eye.  This was also duly ignored.   Finally a Letter Before Action was sent by email.  Aha!  Game on.  They cited Vehicle Control Services Ltd v Nick Idle and Vehicle Control Services Limited v Damen Ward and that stopping for any time is a breach, and it was only the length of time stopped that may affect the value of the breach.   I said that signage said no PARKING, not no STOPPING and that appropriate case law was JOPSON v HOMEGUARD where the judge specifically said "Merely to stop a vehicle cannot be to park it"   They then came back at me with an evidence bundle they were allegedly going to use at court against me, stated the signage was clear,  a nd repeated their "no stopping" case   I came back at them with the same as before and added that, in their world, someone coming onto the land and wanting to read the signage would have precisely NO TIME AT ALL to so as, according to them, even stopping for mere seconds was a breach.  I also threatened that I would claim costs for my wasted time in dealing the case.   Today they emailed me as follows: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good Morning,   Thank you for your correspondence. We apologise for the delay in our response, however as no further action has taken place we trust you agree no prejudice has been suffered.   Please note that our Client has cancelled our instruction on this matter and the matter is considered closed.   No further action is warranted.

Hi

I have recently finished paying a loan, originally with Black Horse now with Skye.

I have made all contractual payments under this agreement. (well actually I overpaid by 1 instalment)

 

90 payments of 278.26 for agreement

91 payments of 278.26 made

 

The balance of this account is now stands at 775.04

This amount derives from 15 charges of 25.00 & 7 charges of 30.00

A charge of 15.00 to change the date of the repayments.

Also now a charge of 12.00 from Skye in March this year for an alleged instalment payment missed.

All information is obtained from a SAR sent to Black Horse in February 2016.

 

Skye took over receiving payments for this account in June 2015.At that point I had 7 payments to make, although due to a communication error with my other half 8 were made. All these payments made in full and on time.

So as far as I was concerned this loan was finished, but was aware account had incurred charges during a bad period for us 2009-2011.

 

I have never accepted these charges & made Black Horse aware of this & of our financial problems at that time hence paying for a date change in repayments to try and rectify problem but didn’t work & I continued to be charged.

I have recently received a letter from Skye quoting that I have missed a payment of 278.26 in March and have subsequently been charged 12.00.

 

Against better judgement a phoned Skye and asked how can I have missed payments when all contractual payments had been made +1. They hadn’t a clue what anything was as they had only received a balance figure from Black Horse & said they would look into it.

Another telephone call to Skye now reveals that this balance is made up of charges & interest. Some of the interest occurred from the start of the loan (draw down of funds in July 2008 & the 1st installment being paid in August 2008) and it was then pointed out that the amount owed now 775.04 is now capital. I repeated that I did not agree with the charges and would not be paying them and that I would be taken action to reclaim these charges & would send a letter this weekend.

 

The only problem is what letter would I use to address this situation, it’s been quite some time since I tackled anything like this & I know things have changed somewhat as regarding reclaiming charges. I spent a little time looking at COBS(unfairness) is this a route to take & do I take up this fight with the original lender as I have read a post from Bankfodder regarding all duties still remain with them even if sold on. The reason I ask this is Skye told me to deal only with them and not with Black Horse.

 

I work away from home during the week and can only deal with this at the weekend and as we all know these amounts soon start to get out of control so I need to deal with this as quickly as possible.

 

If any info is required I have all letters statements and telephone transcripts.

Any information or guidance is much appreciated.

Thanks

Ok first thing you need to do is get all your paperwork in order. You say you have all the statements so that is a good start. It is worth sending the original creditor a full subject access request. Cost 10 quid should give you everything.

 

This helps reduce chances that they can pull things out of the Woodwork. Also may highlight things like ppi as well.

 

You need to prepare a preliminary letter of claim. To do that you need to use our interest calculators on those charges to get your claim figure. Im on my phone atm so cannot link to it. Look under our cag library for now.

 

Once you have done that you are ready for your next step.

Firstly, thanks for taking the time to have a look & replying, much appreciated.

 

I sent Black Horse a SAR in January & they complied and sent me statements,letters & telephone transcripts as well, a fair bit really.

 

Also I m pretty sure ppi is not involved, sure it would be highlighted somewhere within the paperwork?

 

I have found the letter and will start work on this shortly.

Thanks again for your direction.

 

Hi ss

If you get time can you post me a link to letter & calculator.

Have gone through library can only find this letter that may be of use,is this correct?

Thanks also Martin

I am trying to get this sorted today I have re-typed letter but I do have a few more questions which hopefully I can get posted today.

Thanks

 

Ok

Just finally sat down to have a look at the spreadsheets.

 

Right I believe I am to use the CIS Version for my claim.

Fine.

 

My be sounding like a plum here but where would I get the APR from a Black Statement or the original contract?

 

Also referring back to my original post I have made an extra installment payment how does this fit into the equation?

 

Just a few more things to iron out on the letter.

 

1.This was a joint account with my wife,do I word the letter in the plural, as I am doing the letters I keep using the singular.

 

2.The loan was originally taken with Black Horse and was a secured loan,

Skye now call it a Mortgage.Do I use the word secured loan or mortgage

 

3.Do I send this letter to Black Horse(the original lender) or Skye Loans (the new owner) or both.

 

Hopefully this is the last of my questions, may seem trivial but want to get this right from the start and get this letter sent out.

 

Thanks for your replies and time.

Use the CISheet if you are claiming interest in restitution at the rate they were charging you, otherwise use the statintsheet and use 8% s69 interest

 

I currently have a claim for mortgage charges which was a joint mortgage with my now ex wife, i have claimed as a sole claimant but will obtain a declaration from her to that effect, otherwise you can go solo, you may need to add her as a joint claimant, or just make a joint claim, see cpr 19 for more info.

 

Refer to it as a secured loan, now a mortgage and reference it as "the account"

 

Send it to skye and add the last overpayment to the spreadsheet

Ok

I have managed to sit down and sort letter.

Trying to fit this in between everything else.

 

have attached my letter ,

how does this look?

 

The total amount of charges is 597 + over payment of 278.26 making total of 875.26

 

CI is 629.22 based on the original loan agreement of 15.9%

 

Making a total of 1504.48.

 

As you will see I have not included the interest in my letter , is this correct?

2nd to last paragraph you may want to change to give them 14 days ir they will have 8 weeks before you can send the LBA, which will be almost identical other than its headed "Letter Before Action". include a copy of the spreadsheet with it and send it recorded delivery or at least obtain proof of posting from the PO

The spreadsheet should have calculated interest in restitution to date, you should state the amount claimed plus interest to date as per the CISheet for now, if and when you issue a claim, the interest changes from the issue date to s69 interest at 8%.

If you read other threads for charges claims, youll get the picture

As said a reply yesterday from Skye Loans

 

This doesn't do much really except passing it back to Black Horse the original lender.

 

How do I stand now with time lines and the like.

 

 

Do I just wait for Black Horse or should I now be doing something else

or do I take it that Skye hasn't really handled my complaint stick to the 14 day timeline and send an LBA.

 

Thanks

Do not think I m lazy its just i dont have much time.I am a shopfitter by trade and my hours are very demanding leaving me very little time to sort things.I am home from London tonight & then have to leave for London again tomorrow at 5.30 ,a good 3 hr trip so could do with penning a letter tonight.

Also regarding my previous post,I carry on with sending the LBA to Skye and completely ignore Black Horse.

 

Thanks Rob

You dont need a template, its basically the same as your preliminary letter but with "Letter Before Action" heading

 

If you dont get a result in 14 days time, issue a claim via MCOL

 

We can help with the POC when that time comes

Unfortunately letter had to wait for me to get home.

 

I have drafted LBA ready to post out tomorrow.

 

the only question I have to ask is who am I sending it too,

 

Black Horse or Skye.

 

Reason for asking is that I received this letter yesterday.

 

Thanks
