    • Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm afraid that this website is mainly bad news about companies so it's very refreshing and very decent for someone to come along and to give praise where praise is due. How about a link to their website?
    • Having a little additional think about this, I think that your interests are best protected in the following way: You inform the seller that you are obtaining the quotes which I have referred to above. Having received the quotes, you then inform them that you are proposing to have the work carried out at XXX garage and that you will expect that the seller will reimburse you for the costs and associated expenses. You can tell them though that you understand that they may want to control the work being done to the car and so you are willing to allow them to do it but as the fault has manifested itself at this point and that it is clear that the problem is their responsibility, if they wish to carry the work out themselves then they will have to organise the collection vehicle and the delivery of it to you once the work is completed. Of course this will be very expensive for them and they will either fail to respond or they will refuse. Whatever their reaction, you would then go on to say that as they have failed to respond/declined the invitation to carry out the repairs themselves, that you are now going to your preferred garage – one of the two quotations which you have supplied – and you will have the vehicle repaired there. You are giving them an opportunity to comment. I think that if you use this approach, then you will be able to demonstrate very clearly that they had a choice and therefore they will be unable to disassociate themselves from the repairs which are eventually carried out at your chosen repairer. Even though this exchange of correspondence may mean that it will take a week or so longer to have your repairs carried out, I think you should do this in order to protect yourself in the best way possible
    • Please name the dealer   I would start off by sending them a letter of rejection seeing as you are within the 30 days. This doesn't mean that you have to reject it but it reserves your position. Secondly, on the basis of what you say, I don't think that you need necessary to find the cheapest place. You should be looking at the best quality that you can find. I think the best thing to do would be to get to competing quotations for the work you propose to have carried out – and not necessarily at the cheapest place, but a couple of proper reputable garages – authorised for that kind of vehicle. Inform the dealer as to what you are doing and providing with copies of the estimates for the work before you put it in hand. Give them five days to object or to make other comments. Make it clear to them that once the work is carried out that you will be looking to them to reimburse you. Of course you are opening a can of worms here because if you get some further problems – more serious – you may find that the dealer is starting to say that because you have carried out your own work so your own repairer on the car, they cannot now say that any defects were inherent in the purchase – and that they may have been introduced by 1/3 party repairer. I'm afraid that you have certainly fallen into a trap of buying a car a long distance away from where you live. We find that people often tend to do that because they think the car they have found is the only one in the world for them. They forget to factor in the difficulties that they will be if there are defects – particularly if the car stopped altogether – the cost of transportation to the dealer, the cost of having to travel up and down the country to collect the car – and of course these difficulties could emerge several times through the initial years of your ownership of the vehicle if you are relying on your statutory rights and expect the dealer to meet those obligations. Furthermore, if you have to bring a court action against them you are now dealing with multijurisdictional claims – suing out of Scotland against the defendant in England and that adds to the complications. It's too late for you to do anything about this – unless you actually decide to reject the vehicle – but at the very least, other people who come across this thread may get some benefit from these comments. I think it's important for you to get the best quality repair you can and to make sure that the dealer is aware of what you are doing so that if later on they try to deny responsibility for further defects, that you will be able to show that they were fully appraised of what you are doing and they will have less room to manoeuvre themselves out of their statutory obligations. I'm afraid that purchasing a car from one dealer and then having it repaired by another service provider, brings into the same kinds of difficulties that somebody who purchases a central heating boiler from one supplier and then has it installed by a different supplier find themselves in. When things go wrong, the seller blames the installer. The installer blames the seller – and you, the customer, are piggy in the middle. Not a good place to be. I notice that you are doing things on the telephone. Big Fail! Read our customer services guide. In your situation you should be extremely careful to make sure that you have got a record of everything and a full paper trail
    • What information do DVLA need for a provisional licence ?   Think the ID issue needs to be looked at a bit more. Surely you have birth certificate, school information, Doctors records. School and Doctors should provide a letter to help with ID.                
    • Amex as with any creditor must help you the FOS should go with you and make them remove all interest charged from the very 1st time of asking for help. the FCA regulations actually almost dictate it, they most certainly clearly state that if the are FCA registered they must help.   it's very telling they have no marked your credit file....almost as if they know they are wrong. it's also telling that an irresponsible lending complaint might well be in order hear too, they can just keep upping the credit limit without checking you can pay. and ofcourse covid plays its part here and they've already admitted as they allowed payments holidays until october in line with the rest of the industry and they should be continuing that. you problem is you keep using the phone, no paperwork no record of things discussed. i'd get an SAR off to them. and get the comms/account log and all the statements from day one and go nail them.

    • 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!

cabot/nolans Ordinary Cause Claim - old sainsbury HBOS loan debt

Hello Everyone

 

I started getting letters from Nolans probably around 2 months ago about a Personal Loan debt that was from years ago.

The debt is not on any of my credit files so it was a surprise to get a letter from a sols about it.

 

Its a Sainsbury's Bank Loan for £16k that i took out on 9/7/09,

very shortly after (around 6 months lost my job).

 

I had been making token payments of £20 per month to originally Blair Oliver & Scott who after around 1 year, passed the debt to Cabot around Nov 2011.

 

I continued the £20 per month till around Jan 2016

then I lost my job again, and couldn't pay at all.

 

If I am being honest,

i thought due to the time since i took it out (8years ago) and the fact that it was off all 3 credit files (equifax/Experian/Callcredit) It had been written off by the creditor.

 

Im always weary with debt letters as the terminology is always "we may" and very rarely "we are doing" but being so close to having a clean credit file the letter has came as a bit of a scare.

 

Any advice?

 

I can post a copy of the letter with personals omitted if it helps?

thanks PIXeL_92

 

I am just unsure whether to ignore the letter, as the wording says

 

"TAKE NOTICE that unless you make payment of this debt IMMEDIATELY application may be made to the courts to issue a SHERIFF COURT SUMMONS against you"

 

they say may.... i guess i will hold off and see what else gets dropped throught the door.

 

Cheers

not statute barred then

and a shame you got spoofed by Bl Ol Sc [bOS]

 

then latterly crapbot into paying

as this would have been statue barred by now

 

the debt is not on your credit file as it was most probably defaulted more then 6yrs ago and has been removed on the defaults 6th birthday.

 

if I were to be honest

this could get sticky

you've blindly paid till jan 2016.

 

get an sar running to HBOS get all the statements.

read the complete sar link thread too

if you've moved since taking it out.

 

for the minute

ignore cabot.

Hi @dx100uk thanks for clarifying.

 

today I got court paperwork through via nolans/cabot with a form 07 and 03.

I don't want to challenge this as I'm in the process of buying a house and my entry date is may18 so don't want any mortgage acceptance issues.

 

I called nolans who raised the action on behalf of Cabot and they said I need to send the stuff back to the court with an offer to pay.

 

What I want is to make an offer each month of say £100 that doesn't give me a CCJ or damage my almost perfect credit file.

 

Will returning the form 03 asking for "time to pay direction" ensure that I don't get a CCj??

 

There is also an option to pay monthly via a "time order" from the CCA1974.

I just want to be able to offer a monthly that doesn't harm my file.

 

What is the best safest option.

Ps I don't have the money to pay In full.

no it does not prevent the decree.

 

the debt itself is already defaulted

so no matter what happens, the account will vansh on the defaults 6th birthday

regardless.

 

now if you break the time order

then theres always the chance they go for enforcement.

 

but that's nothing to do with the debt entry

 

it would appear as does a CCJ in the public section for 6yrs.

 

so simply don't break the time order

Hi again.

 

Following on from previous advice I applied for time to pay and suggested I think it was £30per month.

 

I think I applied for time under the CCA1974 and not a time order as such.

 

I have now received a court citation to attend regards my application.

 

Is my attendance normal?

 

I was expecting to be able to close of this matter via post.

 

When attending is there anything I should be prepared for,

or is my attendance just to confirm my income and expenditure and thrash out a monthly payment?

 

Thanks for any guidance.

Hi dx100uk sorry for disappearing.

 

I was sent a form from the courts giving 2 options either a time to pay direction (which I think u suggested i apply for) or a time order under CCA1974.

 

I was planning to follow your instructions and apply for a time to pay direction but it was also asking for copies of the agreement that I did not have.

 

Also 1 had 1 or 2 days before my time was up to respond and I was going abroad for xmas

 

I ended up using the time order application from the CCA1974 only because it did not request proof of agreement.

 

I hand delivered it to the court and like I say now have a citation to appear in person on 22nd jan.

 

Just wanted some guidance from here.

 

I apologies again for appearing casual on this it was more holidays and work getting in the way.

 

Thanks again

I have to apologise.

 

I think I have been confusing you and me.

 

I have been mixing the 2 different routes up.

 

I have checked the paperwork and what I appear to have done is NOT apply for the time order as u suggested but in fact time to pay for debtors 1987.

 

I was filling the time order route out and it asked for a copy of the regulated agreement which I did not have.

 

So I filled out the other form which was applying for a time to pay direction debtors Scotland act 1987.

 

I have been confusing the 2 in my previous comments.

 

But this is the case.

 

It's an ordinary action.

I called the sheriff court.

 

The young lady I spoke with was very nice and said I have been asked to attend as Cabot financial has rejected my offer of £30pm, the judge will just want to see if im able to afford more.

 

The letter to attend is stating that I have made an "application for a time to pay direction" when i asked further the girl checked and said it is under the debtors scotland act 1987.

if I can attach a picture I will.

 

If attending court under my current application ensures I DONT get a CCJ,

even if I have to pay a little more say £50

then I will be ok to let things role as they are.

 

Of course any advice would be gratefully received.
