    • Different statements. One has “at 59 mph overtaking on the approach” and the other “it was overtaking on the approach and in ....... at 49 mph”. So not the same statement (same ethos, different sentence structure).   perhaps they chose that site for the officer because it is an accident hotspot, and they know people do dodgy overtakes (while speeding) there .....??  
    • Hi.   I've moved your thread to the Bailiffs forum. People should be along to advise later.   HB
    • So a little update;   Of the 6 letters I sent 3 were acknowledged. One accepting £1/month for now and two from the same creditor trading under different names asking for full I&E which I haven't done.   In a moment of madness I managed to depsoit 5k to a gambling site I didn't have due to paypal's crazy policy of allowing payments which are to be collected by direct debit after a couple of days to gambling sites! Mad they allow this but this will show as a negative paypal balance (in a different account to the original "debt"). The first paypal -£5k account has been closed and passed to a DCA now. I have ignored them.   My council has appeared to have stepped up their collection efforts for £2.5k in alleged housing benefit overpayment from 2015/16. I have acknowledged their letters over the past 3 years each time by email but they rarely respond to my pleas. I truly think if there was overpayment then it was for less than half the amount they claim. At the time I didn't think I was being overpaid because I wasn't really working but I had stopped claiming JSA/ESA (and told them as much) but earned a couple of hundred pounds a month from sporadic work.   Also what I thought was a dormant debt from 2016 to Halifax has been actually sold ( to caboot? I think. Hard to keep track of everyone)   I've been getting phone calls daily but ignoring them for the most part. I did request all communication in writing in my original letters.   I feel incapable of dealing with these creditors and whilst initially I was feeling that I would be happy to just ignore all the letters (arreas, defaults and the like) and phone calls for an indefinite amount of time and  hope to make it 6 years to statute barred-ness and accept or defend any CCJ attempts that did arrive. I figured that avoiding these creditors for 3 months so far is 5% of the way there to statute barred! But I figre for these fairly sizeable amounts they probably won't all let it go and I will get some CCJ docs (never had to deal with that) However now my mood and thinking has changed.    I am looking again at insolvency. I'm over the DRO limit now so its BR or nothing. I was wondering why you said to not consider this and it would be stupid @dx100uk? Although shirking my debts/responsibilities it does seem like an "easy" way out at the moment. It would be so nice to know that what's done is done and to be able to draw a line in the sand and start again in a year or so and not have to avoid creditors or worry about what's coming next...   It certainly would help the environment what with the amount of letters that are arriving already(!) considering the first payment I missed was october/november (excluding the old halifax and council debts). I am exordinately stressed about it now even though I thought I would be already . Any advice would be great if it was to get my head out of the sand and contact people/do the ignoring thing and seeing what happens/reasons  to do or not to do bankruptcy for these unsecured debts?   Thanks      
    • Hi everybody   Had a knock on my door and was confronted by either a Bailiff or enforcement agent (not sure about the specific job title). When I opened the door he stuck his foot in so I couldn't close the door. I was video taping him so I took a few steps backward (to get him in shot) and he just fully entered the property despite me saying that I was denying him entry and he refused to leave thereafter.   Turns out that he was there to collect a court issued fine. I think from a Magistrates Court. He worked for this outfit:   www.marstonholdings.co.uk   The reason for the fine was something to do with "driving without car insurance". Now I had a cheap car a few years ago but it broke down and would cost more to fix than it was actually worth. So I sold the car for scrap and cancelled the insurance. Turns out you have to inform the DVLA when you scrap a car and them that it is no longer on the road (I was unaware). So this was the circumstances of the visit.   My question is did he have the lawful right to enter the property? I always thought these people were like vampires i.e. they can only come in if you invite them in.   tia Bear

Hi

 

I pay smpl on Morgage but they are Acenden now.

 

I've just sent them a Sar in the hope of reclaiming charges as I know I was in arrears about 7 or more years ago with capstone what's my chance of success here?

 

I've just noticed they have cashed the cheque and £10 has been credited to my Morgage account.

 

Is this normal practise?

Responding to S.O.S

 

They can actually do what they like with the £10.00 as long as they :-

 

a) fulfil the request for your Subject Access Request within the specified time of 40 calendar days and

b) do not try to say that you have made a payment to your account.

 

It is an unsolicited gift from them to you.

 

You might want to drop them a quick note along the lines of.

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Subject Access Request DATED

Account references...

Name

 

On DATE, I sent a Subject Access Request to your Data Controller. Enclosed with that request was the legally required fee of £10.00.

 

It has been noticed that you have applied that fee to the mortgage account - I would remind you that the fee was for the Subject Access Request onlyand for no other purpose and you are obliged to provide that to me within 40 calendar days.

 

Please confirm that you have made a gift of £10.00 to the mortgage account and are in the process of providing the Data I have made a legal request for.

 

Regards,

 

CruzHughes

Keep an eye on the date so know when you need to start jumping up and down if they don't provide the data on time.

This Morgage has 10 years left to run and I had not realised its interest only.

I have no knowledge of this company and their response times to SAR requests. Perhaps have a quick look at other threads where someone might have sent SAR to them.

Getting any money out of Acenden is an uphill battle, but it's always worth having a go. Let us know when you get the SAR info back and we can advise further.

You are not the only one they have done this to.

Applied the wrong repayment figure.

Get ready to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service when you have your documents from Acenden.

 

Acenden is a "mortgage servicing platform" that was bought out of administration in 2015 by the global equity group BlackRock (from the Lehman Brothers liquidators PwC).

 

SPML is no longer, since early 2009, the beneficiary of the legal charge (the mortgage) of any SPML-originated mortgages.

 

Eurosail is a Special Purpose Vehicle created by Lehman Brothers

- there are several Eurosails

- to which SPML "sold" its mortgage assets, all of them,

while retaining the ownership of the "title" (the brand, as it were)

because the sales were not "perfected" except in the case,

apparently, of second-charge mortgages:

 

 

these Barclays Bank required the sales to be perfected, if it was to continue providing payment processing facilities.

Eurosail is the beneficiary of the legal charge.

 

Acenden will probably fulfil your SAR quite quickly but may omit stuff that makes them look bad.

 

Edited to add:

you can verify all this, above, by reference to documents lodged at the Irish Stock Exchange and available on-line.

Thanks I used to pay capstone over 10 years ago too. I'm just trying to work out the best way to deal with this cos if it goes long any further I'm still going to have a huge balance in 10 years.

Capstone was Acenden's old name.

I think you probably paid SPML, not Capstone.

 

 

You are doing the right thing, starting now.

 

 

Someone else on this forum didn't start until one month before the end of the term of the mortgage,

and he had most of it still to repay (because they had applied the wrong repayment figure).

Which was probably too late.

 

 

You can start collecting all the information you will need: eg bank statements

- if you no longer have these, ask your bank for copies. (Bank may charge for this.)

 

Also recommended is making a screen capture every day of your loan account page on the Acenden web site.

 

 

They do sometimes double-charge and, unless you have contemporaneous details of when that happened and how much, it would be almost impossible to prove it later.

It's ridiculous

there's £268.00 going in and £234. Going straight back out in interest?!

 

I can go back to 2007 cos I changed banks and I've been with the same bank since then.

I don't live there anymore.

 

But I want to gets all the facts straight before I go to solicitors to sort financial side out with ex.

 

As she seems to have run up an awful lot of debt in my name and she thinks I haven't a clue.

 

Gathering a lot of evidence over a good few things at the moment and its frying my brain.

Have a look at my other threads. :!::shock:

Hmm,

so they expect you to pay for a certified copy of your own signature

- in what other way have you had dealings with this company?

 

 

Because they will only require proof of your identity if they have not had any dealings with you for a long period.

If they have provided any other sensitive information to you over the past say, 18 months then they are stalling ?

Weird ain't it??

I rang them the other week to query arrears and they send statements to my adresss regularly

and have done so each time I moved after I left marital home house with mortgage on.

 

 

How do I word that they don't need my signature to proceed with my straightforward sar request?

Well My honest opinion (and this will be disagreed with) is that it is perfectly acceptable for them to ask for ID in my thoughts.

if you read the sar thread in its entirety

its advisable to list your old addresses

include a copy of your current CTAX demand as proof of who & where you are now.

 

you must sign an SAR too

Save your anger and energy for extracting yourself from Acenden. They seem to have done this sort of thing to thousands, and from what I have seen to me it looks like deliberate policy not honest error. Anyway, you are not expected to be a financial wizard checking their figures; they are obliged by law to get it right first time and never get it wrong. But it may entail a lot of work on your part.

 

When you have the information from Acenden - in particular the audit trail of your account - find a calculator on the web and put in what you borrowed, at what interest, what you repaid and when; these calculators also tell you how much you should have repaid every month in order to clear the debt within the period of the loan.

 

This is from 2013 but still relevant.

 

http://www.iii.co.uk/stockmarketwire/90297/cml-help-interest-only-mortgage-borrowers

 

Has Acenden ever written to you about your plans to ensure you can meet your contractual obligation to pay this off when it reaches maturity?

Received sar back.

There are phone transcripts with parts blanked out.

 

Most of paperwork is to do with buildings insurance that I've been paying over 400 a month for.

 

What should I be looking for?

 

There are a few letters where they have credited the account as They were saying I'd been overcharged for letters
