    • Hi  I do apologise as I don't know where to put this question.   My wife is self employed and her business is closed to to Covid 19. She has lost all future bookings  and has no earnings. I am retired with a State Pension. We have applied for Universal Credits which has been granted - payment middle of April , so that's great. We applied for the Small Business Rates Grant - £10,000 to help with business expenses - she intends to open trading again  ASAP, and there are obviously supplier contracts and services that need to be paid for, plus we modernised premises this year ( as we had lots of bookings) and our personal Credit Card debt is approx £9500.   To my surprise they have granted this and are paying money into her business account.   I know we would have to notify Universal Credit about the Grant, but would she still be entitled to U.C payments? The business is hers , so I presume I am still eligible for U.C   Many Thanks thedrunkenmonkey
    • Neighbour who has garden at end of mine (fence to right as they look down their garden but crosses various gardens as I look down from my house) is requesting that I repair a damaged fence as her dog keeps coming into my garden.   Am I responsible to repair it (my part of fence)?    I have looked at various websites but not very clear.   Neighbour said they erected and put up a fence to their left as they look down their garden but stressed that I was accountable for part of fence to the right.   Thank-you for looking at would appreciate any guidance for confirmation.    
    • Are you or do you wish to use the vehicle until we succeed with arguing and you succeed in VT?
    • Hi I hope all are ok in these trying times. I assume most of us will be in the same situation with employment etc.   I am obviously still intending to follow through my complaint against MB. However I do have to make decisions as I have found myself as will most people at this time left with a reduced minimal income, with all I can forsee is an impending up hill struggle for the forceable future.   So not sure what, if any options I still have, I am presuming VT was only an option earlier on and a court CO excludes that option,    I cant continue to honour the finance payments and cant even begin to estimate any timescales I would be again financially stable.   im trapped but want, no I need to get rid of MB all together, they can have the car and I learned the expensive way!   MB recently emailed a letter (which is copied below) in it they refer to a recent termination, this is the part that is very confusing as its my understanding they terminated the agreement in March 17.   They also inform they have placed the collections on hold, but then heres the cheeky bit, they do however want me to store the vehicle, tax and insure it, as per the agreement (the agreement that they already state was terminated) until they continue with their collection process;   Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic currently affecting the UK and wider world, we’re emailing to update you on what will now happen regarding the collection of your vehicle, following the termination of your Moneybarn vehicle finance agreement.   We won’t be collecting the vehicle at this time Normally, following termination of your agreement, we would arrange for an inspection and collection of the vehicle. However because of the current Government imposed lockdown, we are not currently able to collect vehicles until further notice.   What will happen next? Nothing for the moment. We’ll contact you as soon as there are any developments in the Government’s stance and we know that we’re able to resume our normal vehicle collection activity.   What do you need to do? We would appreciate if you can please keep the vehicle taxed and insured for the time being, as per the terms and conditions of your finance agreement. We hope this information is helpful and clear. Please stay safe and well, and if you need to contact us with any questions, please check out the latest information on the best way to reach us at   So they state termination, then expect to lay down instructions for me to comply with as per my finance agreement T&Cs. To look after the vehicle that they do intend to continue collection of.   If everythings terminated and in other words I have no right to the vehicle, Im not prepared to comply with instructions in line with a non existent agreement (I dont have to) and have a good mind to charge them storage.   However l would much rather just leave the car, send off V5 to change ownership and be done with it and concentrate on getting justice for their mistreatment.

Please could you help

 

i have been pursuing a claim for mis sold PPI against YES car credit/DAFS for a number of years,

 

i bought the car in 2001,

I'm not covered by either FOS or associated bodies.

I have got to the stage whereby i have advised them i will be continuing my fight through the courts,

 

on Saturday i received letter From Irwin Mitchell stating amonghts other things.

I quote

" It is our clients primary contention that any claim brought in respect of the agreement will fail as it will have been brought outside the statutory time limits for starting court proceedings.

 

The agreement was entered into by you on 20th November 2001,

almost 16 years ago,

and therefore,

according to the limitation periods set out in the Limitation act 1980,

any claim arising out of this agreement is now out of time.

 

There is other gumpth with, that I'm not to concerned about and this will be their scaremongering in an attempt to put me off.

 

Would just like to understand a bit more about Limitation act 1980,

I've had a look through, to which it states "6 years",

however my complaint is not against the Loan per say,

it focussed around the mis selling of PPI.

 

I would be grateful if you could give me a direction i can take with this,

as do not want the bastards to get away with it any longer.

 

Once I'm successful, would be more than happy to share my finding on your site, as I'm aware I'm one of thousands in the the same boat with DAFS crooks.

 

I believe they scan your site looking for such information in getting themselves ahead against claimants like myself.

I read the Act as you have six years from the 'date of discovery' of the mis-sold PPI.

 

I would tell Irwin Mitchell to re-read the Act ,and draw their attention the DATE of DISCOVERY OF MIS_SOLD PPI, not the date of the loan. They are trying to scare you off.

I'm afraid that you are being misled here.

 

The issue of PPI is about money being paid under a mistake. The mistake being either that you believed that you were required to purchase the PPI, or that you were purchasing it without being informed, or that you were purchasing it believing that it was relevant to you when in fact it was not applicable, or that you weren't informed that a commission payment was being paid and so therefore you weren't fully informed and not in a position to make a proper decision as to whether or not it was suitable for you or if it was the best deal.

 

The limitation period which applies to actions for the recovery of money paid under a mistake is six years – but this means six years from the date that you knew of the mis-selling or could reasonably have done so.

 

It is up to you to decide when you knew about the mis-selling or when you should reasonably have known about it and then you start counting the six years from there.

 

The information which you are receiving from Irwin Mitchell is basically the pure contractual limitation period – but even that, is wrong because it is not six years from the date of the contract. It is six years from the date of the contractual breach – or the date upon which you could reasonably have known of the breach.

 

I'm afraid that we have lots of instances of solicitors or legal representatives providing this kind of incomplete information and in this way they are effectively misrepresenting the true situation – particularly to litigants in person – and I can imagine that you're not the only person who has received this kind of information in respect of a loan from Yes Car Credit.

 

Presumably these people are now covered by the FOS and so I would write back and inform them that their information is misleading because it is incomplete and is calculated to deceive a litigant in person and because of that you are proposing to make an immediate formal complaint to the FOS simply in respect of this unfair treatment of you.

 

Tell them that additionally, you are fully aware that you are well within the time. Because you only became aware of the PPI mis-selling within the last X years and therefore you will be starting a legal action if they're not prepared to change their position.

 

If you're not prepared to make the complaint which I have outlined above to the FOS, then don't make the threat to do so. However, a complaint about this to the FOS is a simple matter. It is free of charge. And it will help others if you do so.

 

Incidentally, you are talking about PPI going back an awful long time here. Have you any idea of the value of a possible claim? Although you are highly likely to win, there is a niggling thought in my mind that the value of your claim will put you onto the fast track which would mean that you could be at risk of costs if you lost the action.

Thank you

 

Great information and the reassurances i was looking for.

Im a man of action not threats, so yes will be complaint to the FOS about the solicitors response.

Its in the region of 3500-3900 i have calculated, so fingers crossed.

Well that is well within the small claims limit and so that gives you a big advantage immediately because they will know that you have nothing to be frightened about in terms of bringing the legal action.

 

However, have you really calculated it correctly because if you're talking about PPI which was sold to you 16 years ago, I would have expected it to be an awful lot more – and of course don't forget the 8% interest.

 

I suggest that you begin a complaint to the FOS immediately but in terms of a legal action, I suggest that you start making your calculations very carefully.

 

Also of course, give Irwin Mitchell an opportunity to reconsider their position in view of this approach that you are deciding to take. It will be better all round if they simply face up to their obligation.

I utilised a spreadsheet for PPI reclaiming, just imputted the info i had to hand and that was the outcome.

 

As you state positively it falls within MCOL stipulations, which i believe is £5000

Ive read that, all 18 pages and she pursued DAFS through the courts, couldn't see any mention of going after the underwriters.

I have previously, it was declined and FOS were pretty poor in any support given, basically agreed with them.

Solicitors don't fall within the jurisdiction of the Financial Ombudsman Service I'm afraid.

Who would i complain to about his actions in place of FOS please?

 

They have attempted that strategy, supported by FOS and FCA, unfortunately, hence why i have decided the MCOL route. Email was sent today, sit back and await the reply.

Nobody really. The Legal Ombudsman only deals with complaints about your own solicitor and the Solicitor's Regulation Authority only accepts reports about conduct issues, which this isn't. To be honest I can't see you have cause to complain as they seem to be simply stating what grounds they would rely on to defend, the merits of which could only be decided by a court.

 

I would also be wary of issuing a PPI claim that would be defended on statute barred grounds. It's been tried before and failed.

Underwriters were Uk Insurance who are associated with Churchill who are associated with Direct line who are associated with RBOS.

 

DAFS are the company who purchased Yes car credit ( yes owned by Provident), i have emailed the CEO of provident, hence the letter from Irwin.
