    • Hi dx100uk,    OK will do, I'll wait for that possible stage to come and keep this updated when I can.   I didn't buy a parking ticket.   Kal   ...       Way off topic but I love your profile pic, gonna listen now and allow Jeff Beck to send shivers down my spine in his epic WGW P3 solo ✌️    
    • Apologies, misunderstanding on my part. I was thinking of a shop called Cotswold. Please ignore me.   HB
    • 1st Draft - reviewed several statements    I was a bit unsure about adding more about the section 78, although they took a very long time the did provide the CCA - any help appreciated    In The *******County Court Claim No. ********* Between **********Claimant and *************** Defendant     I am the defendant in this case and make this Witness statement in support of my defence in this claim. The matters set out below are within my own knowledge, except where I indicate to the contrary.   1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct disputed or bad debts, which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed ...10p to 15p in the £1 and which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income. Idem Capital securities issue claims to circumvent and claim the full amount of debt to maximise profit.    2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchase’s debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.   3. It is accepted that I have in the past had financial dealings with HBOS. That being a Credit card Agreement.   4. After seeking advice this led me to check all paperwork I held with creditors, from this I could not find any Credit Agreement relating to the account the claimant is referring to.   6. I therefore sought clarification and requested copies of the agreements from the claimant by way of a section 78 request for the alleged amount.    7. A Letter before claim pursuant to Pre Action Protocol was issued by the claimant 06/09/2019. I made a request for the following documents:   ·         A copy of the Default Notice ·         A copy of the Notice of assignment ·         A complete set of statements detailing exactly how the debt has accrued detailing ·         All transactions ·        Any additional charges applied since the account was terminated ·         A statement  of all payments received.   The claimant to date has failed to comply completely with my request and has not provided me with the required Default Notice.      8 .On the 13/11/19 the claimant issued a claim form through the county court business centre. On receipt of the claim form I made a CPR 31.14 request.    9. A CPR 31.14 request was sent 25/11/2019 via Royal Mail signed for and shows as received 27/11/19. A Request for the following documents was made:   ·            Default Notice ·            Full statement of account     The claimant to date has failed to comply and disclose the default notice.   Conclusion   To date no Default Notice has been produced.    The claimant has still yet to comply with my CPR 31.14 request with regard to clarity of any valid default notice issued, as yet I have never received an original or seen a copy of a valid default notice from the claimant.   Arbitration confirmed that the claimant could not produce the Default notice document    Therefore for the above reasons the claim bought by the claimant is without merit and an abuse of the court process. It would be far more gracious and forthright for the claimant to admit that they do not have possession of the correct valid paperwork and this is an attempt to convince the court that the claimant can disclose the legal valid documents on which its claim relies on.   Until such time the claimant can comply and disclose a Default Notice they are not entitled while the default continues, to enforce the agreement pursuant to section 87 (1) of the Credit Consumer Act 1974.    I **********, the defendant, believe that the facts stated in the witness statement are true.     Signed………………………….

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi there,

 

 

My sister's husband has just this week passed away leaving over £36,000 worth of credit card debt including £16,000 to MBNA. There is no estate and he has pretty much left her in a mess financially, with no savings and just debt after debt.

 

 

She is not a joint signatory and they were his credit card debts and nothing (apart from the fact she was married to him) links her to these. Will she have to pay them off (like she ever could) or do they die with him?

Hello there.

 

My OH dealt with two estates last year where there were borrowings in the husband's sole name. All the companies agreed to write off the debt.

In summary, they would only be liable if the debts were joint EG - If dual signed credit agreement etc.

Debts come out of the persons estate and if there is none then the debts dont get paid simple.

 

Check below for more info.

 

Pay in priority order

Once you have probate or grant of administration, you can use the money in the estate to pay off the debts that aren’t covered by insurance. Paying the debts first is more important than distributing the estate to the heirs.

 

You should pay off the debts in this order of importance:

 

Secured debts, such as the mortgage.

Reasonable funeral costs and the costs of administering the estate.

Unsecured debts, such as credit cards, utility bills, unpaid rent, Council Tax and other taxes, and repayment of overpaid benefits.

If there are assets, such as a car or a house that if sold, could go towards paying off the debts, it’s an option worth considering.

 

If there are more debts than the estate can pay back, this is called an ‘insolvent estate’. In this situation, it is best to seek the advice of a solicitor or a probate specialist.

In theory, debts when the person dies should no longer form part of his/ her estate (whatever remains from the dead person), however, it still could lead to claims again the estate. It's a lot of money, ie 36k so the creditor may try to claim it as a debt. However, as it's not joint debt (ie not joint and severally liable), any claim attempts are not likely to succeed. If there is a Will and the Executor (legal way of distributing estate) is appointed but he/ she has not placed in the London Gazette for any debtors to come forward, it 'could' lead to claims against any beneficiaries. This law is the Administration of Estates Act 1925

If the debts have not been advertised in the London Gazette, although in theory they should die the creditor may try and claim the amount. This law comes from the Administration of Estates Act 1925. The fact the debts were in not in both names (joint and severally liable) should mean any claims should fail.

One does not "advertise the debts" in the London Gazette. The purpose of a Section 27 notice placed in the Gazette is to give unknown creditors opportunity to come forward and stake their claim. The notice serves to protect the personal representatives (often referred to as the executors) from being held liable for these unknown debts. The beneficiaries can still be pursued for these debts if there were money in the estate to cover them.

 

If the estate is insolvent, the general advice to to step away and avoid doing anything that could be deemed as intermeddling and leave the creditors to fight it out amongst themselves.

There are rules that specify in what order money is to be paid out. The priority is the funeral and as far as I am aware there is no limit on the cost. Next are administrators or executors legitimate expenses.

 

If this eats up all the money they can not get a bean.

 

When my wife died- we were long separated but still legally married - I just informed all creditors that there was no money. Not one queried it


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .
