    • Well rac just responded    Ironically they're saying they bear no liability as the - and this is their words   "the catastrophic engine damage had already occurred before the first patrol arrived"    I've emailed back to say simply that we are unable to accept this explanation as the patrol did not raise any concerns in regards to engine damage and that if the engine had been "catastrophically damaged" that they still bear liability for advising to continue towing on it which caused the actual failure    Gave them 14 days to reconsider before opening small claims...

    • and if you consider Sunack is adding a further 1.6 billion to the 12 billion plus already spent on the 'vaccination program' despite putting absolutely sod all in for NHS pay ... whats 14.6 billion divided by 20 million? - mm over £700 pounds per jab even ignoring all the wasted PPE and test and trace costs .. and any 'exaggerated vaccination number claims.  
    • Thanks. I understand now. Sorry for being thick. Last question….. what do you mean by lucky or unlucky about having a UK asset?  Do you mean lucky that there is someone who can forward me any mail? What’s the unlucky part?  Thanks 
    • correct a DCA has zero legal powers. you don't need any 'legal powers' to issue a court claim..you or i can do that if we think someone owes us money, thats what the courts a are therefor, so a DCA thus has no more or less legal powers that you or i.   people end up getting backdoor CCJ's because they do not update their debt owners of their correct and current address. you are abroad, you are also lucky (or unlucky in terms of a uk asset) someone lives in the only? UK address they could use.... you say you'd get the mail or notification anyway...so...

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

My mortgage was with GE Money before it was sold to Engage .

 

I've worked hard to reduce £25k arrears to less than £10k.

 

I have a fees balance of £16k.

I would obviously like to reduce this as much as possible.

 

The current mortgage company have sent me a list of charges incurred.

 

What can I reclaim?

There are a number of £40 admin fees, recalled DD charges and a great deal of additional interest added.

I thought interest shouldn't be charged on charges.

What is my next step?

Sometimes just a polite phone call to GE and/or Engage can result in all statements being sent alot quicker than if you SAR. Worth trying a phone call first(recorded if you can).

If not then a SAR will be needed if you do not have all the statements.

Been there with these clowns so any questions just ask.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I have all my previous statements anyway.

The details from Engage seem clearer since they only relate to charges applied to the fees balance

you can reclaim agent fees

you cant reclaims sols fees if there WAS an active court claim.

you don't need to reclaim additional int as that's what the sheet calculates

 

 

your int rate appears wrong? was it 2.99% APR?

Thanks for looking DX.

I added the interest rate at the top of the paperwork received from Engage.

They have added additional interest to my fees balance every mnoth. This is what has made it so high.

I'm just a bit confused at present

the spreadsheet calculates the additional interest

[as that's what the penalty charges have caused]

 

so follow post 7

 

your mortgage APR [yearly int rate] was 2.99?

Sorry, I'm just a bit thick !!

Should I take out all the additional interest items and add in agents fees.?

What then?

Yes Annual rate is 2.99%

 

Any idea what reactive fee due(LRO) means?

you'd have to redact and scan up the statements to ONE multipage PDF

follow the upload

 

as the APR is 2.99% it might pay you to use the statint sheet then.

 

you cant reclaim the additional int figures

yes to agents

If the additionl interest is charged on the main balance you cannot reclaim it as its legitimate interest on an outstanding balance.

If this additional interest is solely charged against fees and charges then reclaim it as its not charged against a legitimate outstanding balance.

Ge statements alwys showed 2 balances, 1 for the actual mortgage and 1 for any fees charged, oretty much anything in the fees balance is reclaimable.

 

What was the interest when the mortgage was with GE, bet it was more like 8%!

Can't seem to upload a document at present.

I am working mainly from the "Fees charged statement" sent by Engage. There is additional interest added to my monthly outstanding mortgage so this seems to be interest added to the fees balance.

What is my next step please?
