    • PCN Charge  - NTK received on 26th January for, “illegal” parking on the  Nicol Street Car Park for 11 minutes on 19th January, (having done so on the understanding that the car parks had been made free due to the COVID-19). I noticed a similar event and correspondence regarding the same car park in June last year and the advice given was to ignore the, “fine”. However I can’t find the correspondence again and wondered if the advice was followed and how it turned out?     
    • just tell them the truth surely, it wasn't purposefully does and as you insurance company say, technically you were insured and so was the vehicle. it's not as if there was no insurance whatsoever and you were purposefully driving without ever taking out any.

    • As per my old and new posts all correspondences have now ceased from all parties hence me raising issue again.   If defaulted in January 2018, surely I should have been notified?    
    • Hi   I received a NIP for traveling 39mph in a 30 zone (mobile speed camera) in December 2020. As it is my offence, the police sent a letter requesting to know who was driving with three possible outcomes: speed awareness course, 3 points of contest at court. I provided my details and sent the form off.    The police sent me a letter this week asking for confirmation of my insurance... I realised that in October 2020 I removed a private number plate off the vehicle and notified the DVLA and the V5 form but I didn't norify my insurers.    I called the insurance company today and updated my number plate and they said technically I was insured and the vehicle was insured and it depends on how linient the police will be.    I am just concerned as the recent letter states possible prosecution for driving with out insurance with a possible fine and 6 to 8 points.    If they add that to the original 3 I might be given that would be 11 for a first offence.    Has anyone got any experience on this or any advice as I am pretty worried!    Thanks

    • 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!

Thank you for opening this back up. 
 

i logged into my credit file and today noticed that they had put it on my file with 2 years of default!  
 

I have still not received the SAR and no response for it, when I asked again this morning I got a response that they closed it in March and I owe the money. 
I did say I’m still awaiting on the SAR but they haven’t responded . 
 

I was hoping to move and now I feel I won’t be accepted as this is now on my file and is for nearly £8000

I haven't gone through the thread yet – but am afraid that you will have to learn that these things don't go away. You have to deal with them and make sure that you have put the issue to bed.

So far as I can gather you sent an SAR a couple of years ago and it wasn't satisfied and you didn't do anything about it. You should have taken action then and asserted yourself. There's no point in making statutory demands for information which have statutory deadlines then with a data processor doesn't comply, you just sit back and do nothing. What's the point?

I think that given the amount of time which has passed, that you should send them a new SAR. Send it today and then we'll go from there. This time don't let it go.

Meanwhile I'll try and have a read through the thread and see what is happening. However, once again – if you just let things go then eventually they will come back and bite you

Yes, send off the SAR. It doesn't cost anything and there's nothing to lose. However, this thread needs a closer look at and I expect that my site team colleague @dx100uk who was helping you will need to refresh his memory as well and give you a better idea where you stand.

So far I understand that you fell into arrears with your motorcar finance but they then agreed to an instalment plan which they then reneged on. If you kept the instalment plan correctly then they were wrong to renege on it. But we need more information from the SAR and also we need to understand the whole story.

However, only say that even if there was an instalment plan, if you went into arrears on the finance agreement then that would probably still be grounds for marking your credit file – even if you had been keeping to the instalment plan. It seems very unfair – but I'm afraid that's the way it is.

Send the SAR anyway

Ok thank you, 

 

i defaulted but cleared the default by the date needed, and I fell into arrears again but they repossessed the car on the original DN. even with an arrangement to pay (which they didn’t agree too but i maintained payments, I’ve managed to find my bank statements to show this, as I know i commented I missed a few payment with the plan but I found payments made to them) they sold it and now I’m left with £8000 to pay.

I’ll await the SAR response, thank you

you mean the debt buyer has...who is?

and is this the defaulted date of the original one from the DN that you satisfied? 2017

so 2yrs to run is correct..

 

what happen with the Time Order?

what happened with the FOS investigation?

It’s still with the original company, I’ll dig out the FOS stuff I think they were waiting on a response from them which was sent in March this year (but I’ve not had anything) 

 

I was never able to do the time order due to costs

 

I know I’ve made a mistake not chasing it all and sorting

ok so why is this correctly now appearing on your credit file an issue?

did you agree to the repo and give them the car or they just took it ?

I didn’t agree to the repo the guy came every day and ended up blocking my neighbours drive (were the car was stored)  for 6 hours, the neighbour needed to leave and caused a huge commotion and he ended up taking the car. 
 

im not sure as to why now I’m hoping the SAR will show this, but as it’s correctly on there I can understand it needs sorting,

if you can prove that you met the sum owing on the DN by the due date, and a further DN was not issued...this seems like unlawful repo and you should get back the sum of the cars worth and all your payments, as detailed earlier in this thread.

Is your neighbour prepared to make a written statement?

It would go fine. Don't worry.

Please ask them to write a full statement – well spaced – lots of paragraphs saying exactly what happened date time who said what to who who did what to who et cetera.

Post it here and we'll  have a look and then see if we can't turn into something that looks a bit legal. It may be extremely useful at some point.
