Hi guys,

 

Been helping out yet another friend with some advice and as its some time since I advised on here regulary

I thought i would get up to speed.

 

My mate took out a Conditional Sale Agreement for a car with one of the subprime car finance companies.

 

He made his first 3 payments of approx £260

 

Being self employed sometimes money doesn't come in quick enough and he was late with his next payment.

 

They sent him a default notice

 

The arrears consisted of

1 month instalment

£48 of charges stated as administration costs

 

He paid the 1 month arrears (but not the admin costs) 1 day late after the deadline.

 

He then came home to a letter put through his door and a contact number.

he rang it, it was a man who said he had a repossession order for the car.

 

My mate sent him photos of the payments he had made in the 4 months he had the car

and the repo man said he was going to refer it back to his office.

 

In the mean time my mate spoke to me and I looked through his paperwork

and noticed that he had overpaid 1 month by £20 .

 

on his behalf I rang the finance company pretending to be him.

 

They told me that the contract had been terminated and he had to either pay a final settlement

or the car would be repossessed the next day.

 

I said how much currently is the arrears, £48 they replied.

So your repossessing for £48? Yes .

Cant he just pay the £48? No its too late, your contracts been terminated ,

there is nothing you can do about it.

 

i said lets go through the payments and he agreed that there there was an overpayment of £20 they hadn't accounted for .

I said so your default amount is incorrect then?

He said that doesn't matter, I argued.

 

 

In the end I said you get us a settlement figure and I will look for your invalid default notice (I hadn't seen it at this point)

 

30 mins later my mate has a missed call from them, he phones back and offices are closed.

 

10 mins later they phoned again (this is out of hours) and said

"Mr ***** ,

i wasn't very happy with the whole situation ,

i have spoken with my manager

and am delighted to say he has agreed to reinstate your agreement tomorrow

as long as you ring up and pay the £48 arrears

and this months payment which becomes due in the next few days"

 

he does all this and its all back on.

 

A month later, he hadn't reinstated his direct debit , so he pays online using their payment portal onvtime.

 

5 days later he gets a default sums notice- payment not received by DD £18 charge

 

This just raises a few questions for me

 

1 Can they default him in the first instance for being just 1 payment in arrears?

 

2 Can they add charges onto the default for £18 admin fees for non payment by DD?

 

3 Obviously the default was invalid otherwise they wouldn't of panicked and reinstated it,

but if the default is on his credit file can we get it removed?

 

4 Is there a difference between a default sums notice and a default notice?

 

Thanks in advance

Yes he wants the car, i think the threat of repossession is over as they reinstated the agreement after sending him the termination notice, think they panicked when I picked up on the invalid default notice.

 

So i guess the questions are

1 Can they default him in the first instance for being just 1 payment in arrears?

 

2 Can they add charges onto the default for £18 admin. fees for non payment by DD?

 

3 Obviously the default was invalid otherwise they wouldn't of panicked and reinstated it,

but if the default is on his credit file can we get it removed?

 

4 Is a default sum notice for non payment by DD of £18 enforceable? He paid via their payment portal instead.

1 Can they default him in the first instance for being just 1 payment in arrears?

- they shouldn't issue a default notice for one missed payment no.

they can mark the calendar section if they wish without any notice.

 

2 Can they add charges onto the default for £18 admin. fees for non payment by DD?

- no they are an unlawful reclaimable penalty fees as per FCA rules

 

3 Obviously the default was invalid otherwise they wouldn't of panicked and reinstated it,

but if the default is on his credit file can we get it removed? as above

4 Is a default sum notice for non payment by DD of £18 enforceable?

He paid via their payment portal instead.

  • 1 year later...

Hi , I believe things have moved on since I started this thread last year.

 

I was posting on behalf of my mate with his issues with Moneybarn.

 

Having got up to date with his payments since then he had work issues and wasn't get paid and got behind again with his payments.

 

Since then he has defaulted and now received a default and a Country Court Claims form.

 

Going back on this they actually terminated his agreement last May and then panicked when I saw that the defaults were incorrect and he questioned them(see beginning of thread).

 

Is the agreement still valid? He didn't sign a new one or an agreement to reinstate the the original, he just kept paying.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Will post tomorrow, Cant read it on the WhatsApp photo he sent.

 

Is there any mileage in the fact they actually terminated the agreement unlawfully once already in 2016 and he's paid a further 16 payments since then?
