    • I plan to send the new begging letter as following, can I ask for some suggestions?   Dear Investigator/Prosecutor,   Thank you for your reply. I deeply regret my actions and the inconvenience they have caused.   I’m extremely remorseful for my crime. and regret it everyday. I often ask myself ‘’how can I do that thing just because I felt it is interesting. There are a lot of crimes in the world, but feeling it’s interesting is certainly not a reason to crime. I should not crime with any reason.’’ I think about these things every day, and I understand that I can’t blame anyone but myself.   I thanks to the staff who stopped me, as this is a valuable lesson in my life. I told myself that I should never ever repeat such a thing again, and never ever do anything which is possible to be in breach of any law. As a result, I carefully tap my oyster card every time before I enter the station now. I remind myself that I did a wrong thing before, and I should never let it happen again.   Although my monthly travel expenses do not warrant a season ticket, but I just renew my season ticket (please see the attachment). I understand that a crime cannot be truly compensated for, but purchasing a season ticket offers me a small measure of comfort, knowing that my actions caused a loss to the public interest.   I received an email which ask me to negotiate being class teacher in this summer (please see the attachment). I hope that I could teach the lovely students again, which may not be allowed with a criminal record. I would please ask that you would please provide me a single opportunity to settle all outstanding sums owed outside of court without the need for legal proceedings which would have a determinantal impact on my teaching career.   I sincerely apologise again for my crime. If you need anything further from me to help you please let me know.    Yours sincerely,
    • I thought I should send the begging letter to the prosecutor. Does the hearing means the time I need to send back by? If so, it’s June 5 
    • LoL Dx you crack me up. Thanks for the advice. I'll stay positive.
    • Utter Rubbish!! lowell dont write and beg for deals once they start court. as for your attitude, we'll thats nothing new for you.😎 you wont be quizzed, it's not like TV, simply refer to your defence/WS when answering anything the judge may ever ask. well it involves chickens. dx  
    • Thanks fk, I hope I don't have to face the court. Bless you for the reassurance.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

My friend angel_1 introduced me to this forum and advised i might be able to get some help.

 

Went to court on 25 March 2009 and Judge granted possession to the claimant adding at the end if we come into a lump sum of money or a buyer to purchase the property that would be our saving grace.

 

The eviction date is on 24th April 2009 @ 12.30 and was hand delivered yesterday. Is there a min/max amount of notice that should be given prior to the eviction date by the baliffs as this turnaround seems pretty quick.

 

I am in the process of typing a letter to send to the mortgage company asking for arrears to be added to capital as Norgan Law also incorporating PAP as well. Property has been on market for a couple of weeks so will add this to letter including relevant court law.

 

What do you think? My friend has also mentioned Ell-enn for advice as she is pretty hot with cases as such. I would kindly appreciate some help please.

 

Looking forward to your response.

Thanks - survivor 13

Ell-enn will probably need some more information

 

Was this your first time in court?

Are you able to pay the MP with a small amount towards the arrears

Do you have dependants living in the property?

Is there equity in the house.

What was the reason for the arrears and has your situation now changed?

Is your ultimate aim to keep the house or do you just want time to sell?

The Norgan v Cheltenham & Gloucester case law is where a judge decided that the borrower could pay off the arrears over the remaining term of the mortgage, the judge decided that this was a reasonable time to pay off the arrears.

 

It wasnt about adding the arrears to the capital, a judge cannot decide that, its up to the lender.

 

It looks like the judge you have seen either didnt know much about repossession cases or maybe wasnt having a good day did you offer to pay extra each month to clear the arrears?

 

There is no time frame with the bailiff giving a date it just depends on how busy they are although its generally not less than 7 days.

Stay strong and you will get help on this forum.

Hi Jansus,

 

Thanks for your speedy response, much appreciated

 

With regards to your questions -

 

1. No - we were in court in on 26.01.09 a warrant of eviction had been issued by the claimant - Mars Capital (Victoria Asset Management)

2. The judge ordered in jan 09 monthly payment plus 100.00 for the arrears which we have adhered to. However, we advised about the house going to go onto the market for selling, and also trying to get a remortgage in my name only as at the moment its solely in my partners name.

3.Yes we have 2 children aged 11 and 4 yrs.

4. Yes about 50,000 but we have put on the market with 20,000 less to try and sell.

5. Partner lost his job im only part time, playing catch up however, the situation has improved since and we are in position to pay Mp and arrears

but last year payments were erratic.

6. Idealy would like to keep the house - selling was rather than being repossessed.

 

hope to hear from you soon

 

cheers survivor

Hello Vickson thanks for your speedy reply too much appreciated

 

pls see my reply on post 4 for further info

 

we had incorporated the Norgan case with our defense in jan 09 however, judge completly ignored it and was more interested how and how soon we could pay the full amount or the arrears

 

The judge gave us 2 months to sort out a remortgage however our attempts failed as you well know the financial climate we face at the moment

So thats why we opted to sell when we went back to court after the 2 months the judge was not best pleased

 

He basically quoted what i first said in my first post on this thread.

I left the court in disbelief.

 

We are now in the process of faxing across proposals to the lender

we want to confirm that we will continue to pay MP and the arrears 100.00 each month and also suggest adding the arrears to the life of the mortgage and then to also quote the Pre Action Protocol as they have never offered to help us in any way shape of form.

 

we await on your good advice

Hi

We were in a similar baot to you recently and gained a lot of lep from Ell-en. I cannot see why if you are paying the MP and some off the arrears, a judge would not suspend the possession.. are there charges being added that almost wipe out this extra payment. As my understanding is of the Norgan case if it can be shown that you can pay off all the arrears withgn a reasonable time ( and that has been shown to be the remaining term) then the order should be suspended. Ell-en will send you a budget sheet for you to complete and when you do it should show you have a resiue of £100 left per month to pay the extra. If it shows any more then the mortgage company will ask for more so worl it out carefully. Ell-en is a saint and will surely help you when she logs on.

All the best and keep positive.

Hi Survivor13,

 

Have you tried bringing your local MP into this? I wonder if he/she could intervene with the mortgage provider? Gordon Brown made enough noises about repossession being the last resort and lenders doing everything to keep people in their homes. I know it's a long shot, but maybe if your MP could lean on them a little?

Hi martdj,

 

Thanks for your kind response. I was quite surprised and clearly disappointed with the judge's verdict however we have now recovered from the shock and are prepared to fight with all our might for our house. I am using the bank holiday weekend to thoroughly go through the figures as I keep spotting discrepancies with their figures. We went to court in January £7912.21 in arrears and when we returned in March we were £9572.72 despite paying Jan, Feb and Mar payment + arrears of £100.00. I am now requesting a breakdown of their charges to get a clearer picture of what we owe.

 

I do sincerely wish you all the best with your fight for your home and remember its not over until the fat lady sings (smile). Keep the faith, best of luck.

Thanks for your kind thoughts underdog. I haven't thought about MP intervention however its a brilliant idea and one that I will give serious consideration time permitted. My friend angel has got contact with an MP i'l see if we can arrange an appointment.

 

Once again thanks

Very few judges will grant possession to the lender where there is a dispute in the level of arrears, usually they will adjourn the hearing to a later date so both sides can prove what you think is the amount of arrears. (usually the solicitors agent sent to these hearings have minimal paperwork- and wont have this to hand immediately)

 

Get your paperwork in order if this is the case. if the arrears are lower than they were last time you were in court, the judgement may go in your favour, as you will have been seen to be making an effort.

 

Make sure you point out to the judge you dont agree with their arrears figure.

 

 

In any case, dont lose hope.

Thanks vickson,

 

Struggling to get some decent kip tonite as my mind keeps wandering about preparation of defence, seeing the same judge and so on and so forth. I have now got paperwork together with arrears and fees since mortgate commenced in Jan 2006, tomorrow I will go through figures hopefully spotting enough discrepancies to be able to present a case.

 

Shold I put this in defence or is less more. I'm hoping to prepare and take defence to court by the end of the week so help would be greatly appreciated.

I think you can ask for a more experienced judge to look at your case, it is possible the court will assist in this as they don't want their reposession figures to look bad... believe it or not the courts are judged on how many people they grant reposession orders to and how quickly the repossession actually goes ahead.

Thanks for your suggestion sg1, not sure how to go about doing that and the eviction date is looming with almost a week to go. Send letter to mortgage company still waiting for response I guess they will take their time in responding. Angel 1 and I are putting defence together 2mora but need some help in doing this. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Take care

Hi, I know it's late in the day but, you could try to dispute the arrears if there are a lot of charges.

 

You could take the line that you are sending the lender an SAR for all the statements as you intend to claim these back. This allows the lender up to 40 days to respond in which case, you need an ajournment until such time you have all the information to hand.

 

I understand you can claim back up to 12 years on mortgage arrears charges. Anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong on this point?

 

The idea is to give you more time for negotiation. If you feel this is a route you might consider then I can let you have a draft claim letter setting out the grounds on which you base your claim for charges.
