Credit agreement NOT, regulated under the consumer credit Act 1974 what does it mean?

Recommended Posts

I have just seen a RBS agreement from 1992!!

 

At the top it does'nt have the usual bumf of 'this is a Credit agreement regulated under the consumer credit Act 1974' (or similar)

 

I thought this was a must! What legal implications does it have?

 

There are other faults but I can't remember what not having the above means.

 

Its not mine so I can't post it up.

 

Kind Regards jack

Hello uncle B.

 

England, Credit card..

 

Not a mistake....Amazingly it is a photocopy of the actual signed agreement. Not a put together thing to comply with s78.

The CC must be subject regulation under the CCA1974 anyway and perhaps there was some other document signed, which they don't have. Usually a signature box under the terms and conditions,

NFORMATION TO BE CONTAINED IN DOCUMENTS EMBODYING REGULATED CONSUMER CREDIT AGREEMENTS OTHER THAN MODIFYING AGREEMENTS

 

TYPE OF AGREEMENT INFORMATION

(1) (2)

Nature of agreement

1. All types. (1) A heading in one of the following forms of words shown prominently on the first page of the document—

(a) “Hire-Purchase Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974”;

(b) “Conditional Sale Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974”; or

© “Credit Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974”,

as the case may require.

(2) Where the document and a pawn-receipt are combined, the words “, and Pawn-Receipt,” shall be inserted in the heading after the word “Agreement”.

(3) Where the document embodies an agreement of which at least one part is a credit agreement not regulated by the Act, the word “partly” shall be inserted before “regulated” unless the regulated and unregulated parts of the agreement are clearly separate.

as you said in yr first post, it wld prob go down to whether an alleged agreement as a whole has been properly executed as required for enforcement purposes. if a J says not, then no enforcement.

I should have added the form only has , in big capital letters ' APPLICATION FORM'. Everything in the filling in process is the same as an Agreement form , including the right to cancel notice etc in the signature box.

 

I think there is a fair case to argue

I may well reply with something like this

 

1. The Claimant has failed to produce a copy of an original agreement. It has produced a document headed “ Application Form” which in the course of its’ text refers to it being “an agreement” however there is no cogent evidence of any execution of the alleged agreement ,it refers to “this or any future application”. It cannot both be an application and an agreement. Under the terms of the 'contra proferentum' rule any ambiguity should be construed against the party that seeks to rely upon it. Here the document was not drafted by the defendant and it is the Claimant who seeks to rely upon it as being an agreement. Consequently it is submitted that the document should be construed as not being an agreement.

 

2. In such eventuality the absence of a written agreement is fatal and consequently as the alleged agreement was entered into before the 6th April 2007, being the date when s15 of the Consumer Credit Act 2006 came into effect. By operation of Schedule 3 of the 2006 Act the terms of S127 (3) Consumer Credit Act 1974 are not repealed in respect of this alleged agreement and therefore render it unenforceable.

Hi ford.. thanks for staying with me.. this is part of the CCa request... The usual inept try at compliance including, No FRC prescribed terms or the original agreement varied terms. So as a whole as it stands, plenty to fight with.

 

I will probably advise leaving it for now... however they have a habit of playing bloody letter tennis with the DCA lowells.

What legal implications does it have?

proper execution, as mentioned.

and, any cca request response has to be accurate.

for court enforcement.

 

agree, dont get into letter tennis about it.

(in one for eg, a letter was sent back following a cca request saying it was rubbish. the creditor didnt even respond, and continued with their collection activities)

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
