Did you raise a dispute to the claim ? If not it would not require allocation and would have automatically been placed in either FT or MT.

Then as per my last post ...the court must have decided to dispense with DQs and placed it automatically in Fast Track...always handy to retain a file from any court dealings then you have all the paperwork to hand for future reference.

well if it was that straight forward and Elderbridge believed they are correct to charge the costs or add them to my loan etc, then why has it taken them over 4 1/2 months to tell me so.

 

They still have not responded to me about this, they've treated it as a complaint and have not replied!

MF I have nothing but admiration for you, I’m very glad that you have the buyer , if it were me in your position now, I would go back to court and let the judge know the other party are trying to add costs even tho these can sometimes be added to the final mortgage amount and and find out if indeed it was the judges intention you should be liable, because maybe there is a difference between a secured loan and a mortgage ?

 

The other aspect worth mentioning i think, is that firstplus failed on many counts to adhere to pre court action protocol also failed the the lenders duties, together with many other aspects listed in the shelter advice site leading to: order the lender to pay your legal costs and stop your lender from adding their costs on to what you already owe them.

Thanks Andy,

 

Not much I can do right now I suppose, I'm waiting to hear from the court that they've found my file, waiting for my SAR to come back too.

 

When he SAR gets to me, I plan to make them an offer, I have already paid around 94k, I borrowed 100k, they can have 6k at the most. Or I pull out of my sale and go to court.

 

I am aware that they have now settled with 5 other customers now. I know things that I don't think they want me to know, it'll be in their interest to make a deal

well it will come as no shock that Elderbridge have not complied with the SAR, I have now complained to the ICO. also still no reply to my complaint re the settlement amount.

 

But got this from the court, which still doesn't make any sense!

 

‘This is a mortgage case, so the mortgage itself usually entitles the Claimant to add legal costs to the mortgage account. The court therefore does not order costs and the Defendant will need to check with the Claimant what costs (if any) were added to the mortgage account. The case was allocated to the Fast Track by order of District Judge ****** made on ** June 2013. That decision would have been made based on the type of claim, its value and complexity among other factors.’

 

I replied back to them

 

'The issue I have is that the case was for over 100k which is well above the 25k limit, it was also quite complicated.

It is my understand that costs can only be added to the mortgage account if they are reasonable but the costs were not assessed. Also in a fast track trial I believe the costs are capped, but capped at what? They supplied an estimate of their costs but as explained costs were not discussed in the last hearing, I do not understand how the judge can say in the Trial that costs will be discussed in the next hearing, then not discuss them and this then means that the claimant can just add them?'

 

their next reply was

 

'As mentioned in our previous email, the file was located and referred to the judge along with your correspondence. The previous email contains the judge’s comments after reading your correspondence. Also, please note that court staff are unable to comment on judicial decisions. If you are not satisfied with the decision and want to contest it, please seek legal advise on how to proceed. '

 

It make no sense to me that they would mention in the trail that costs would be rserver till the next hearing then not mention them at all and because of that Elderbridge are allowed to just add them. also surely the court also needs to clarify whether interest can be added as it looks like that's what they've done!

 

any further advise greatly appreciated

further to this .

 

Got a letter from Elderbridge saying our signatures do not match and asking for ID! received yesterday but dated 11th Oct (conveniently 1 day before the 30 day deadline) are they seriously expecting me to believe that it took 7 day to reach me!!! come on now!

 

I am absolutely livid (as you may be able to tell!)

 

Now the loan was taken out before we were married so I thought they might says that my signature did not match and ask me for ID but they are asking for both of ours - my husbands signature has not changed for over 30 years!! they are also asking me for a certified copy of my marriage cert.

 

I called the ICO and explained the above, told them I believe they backdated the later to be within the time limit - she agreed that it seemed that way, and that they should have immediately replied to my request asking for my ID not waited till the 30 days was up or almost up.

 

she advised me that if I want the data then I will need to send them something to prove my id, but she sad that she thought having a certified copy was not proportionate. and that they will most likely be in trouble for delaying it so long

 

she told me to send reply to them then forward that to the ICO along with a copy of their letter received yesterday and it will all be added to my complaint.

 

I am just so annoyed at the complete lack of respect they have for me or any of their customers, trying to pull the wool over my eyes like that, did they think I was born yesterday??!!

Thanks Bankfodder!

 

Hello again everyone. 

 

I received my SAR back from Elderbridge and what and absolute load of **** it is!

 

1.  They did not send any transcripts or recordings of any phones calls  - both myself and my husband spoke to them in Aug 2016 (noted in their diary notes) and I called them in Dec 2018 (again noted in their diary notes) it was the same day they sent the reply even though they have mentioned me calling in their notes on that day, so not sure I should let that go or not!   I also spoke to them in July 2016 (again in the notes) and I spoke to them in Dec 2012 (again in the notes) 

 

2.  Going through the diary notes in the beginning notes were sporadic mainly because we were making payment and everything was ok, then later as things changed there were notes almost once a month, then in NOV 2012 and Dec 2012 frequency of notes increase as this is when they began court proceedings.  and throughout 2013 again lots of notes made - mostly their in house stuff about court dealings and so on - so that's fine.

then in NOV 2013 hey made a not re the court date in OCT - saying that they were ordered to treat the loan as having a fixed rate from inception and sent off etc.  BUT from 21 Nov 2013 to 17th June 2014 there are no notes at all!  Now the hearing was on the 10th Jan 2014!

ADHOC Statement Printed

Above you can cleary see the gap then suddenly the first notes talk about the court case and costs etc, at the trial in OCT the judge reserved cost till the next hearing (also stated on the documentation from the court)  but then at that hearing in Jan 2014 we did not discuss costs - the 6 month gap I feel is very suspicious. 

 

The final court document  dated 13th Jan 2014 says to pay the claimant £103,331.03 which is the amount outstanding under the mortgage and goes on to says order were not to be enforced as long as we pay etc.  no mention of costs at all - so they seem to just be adding them

 

3.   They sent a field agent to me in Jan 2018, I only knew this as on the 9th Jan 2018 I was working at home and heard the letterbox, thought it was the postman, went to the door to find an envelope shoved through the door with a letter in it saying they had been requested to visit me and that they called today but I was not in! and gave a number for me to call ( I saw the woman walking down the driveway - but she did not ring the bell! and I wasn't about to run after her!)

 

But in the notes they have written this utter lie!

 

30/01/2018 12:44

Field Agent Report Received

The field agent visited the security address on three occasions.

The customer was spoken to through the window. They refused to discuss and refused to answer the door.

The contact number on file is not recognised.

RFA - Not known

Reasons for items not verified:N/A

Details of variances of items outside of expenditure guidelines and reasons N/A

Property is a detached house in good condation valued at £406,000. Equity not known.

I actually cannot believe what I have read here! Can I ask them for some kind of proof of this, because I don't know who they are talking about but it certainly wasn't me!

 

4.  the documents they had sent me a joke, they have sent 77 documents in total, none of these are copies of letter from Elderbridge (which is who I sent the SAR to) all from First Plus and certainly not ALL of them, they have been bulked out by sending me copies of documents that I sent TO THEM for my court defence and there are strange Black boxes over some of the text!? which I don't understand!

 

 

After receiving this info from Elderbridge I decided to send a SAR to Barclays and I got a small package with a couple of letters, some diary notes and screen shot of the account, as well as a short statement of account. This was for our ORIGINAL loan from Feb 2006,  (we topped it up in June 2006) and the first one was closed.  The second one is the one that has been transferred to Elderbridge but Barclays seem to know be denying ALL knowledge of it! and I know that they still hold the beneficial interest of these loans and that Elderbridge regularly contact Barclays for help and advise - I have contact with other account holders who have diary notes from Elderbridge showing contact to Barclays!..

 

This week I also had a reply from the FOS (only from an adjudicator not an ombudsman) and his initial opion is that it's ok for Elderbridge to claim the costs as we defaulted, he seems to be ignoring my argument that the relationship is unfair etc but I will be sending this back and asking for it to be looked at by an ombudsman.

 

But was hoping that someone here could give me any advise re all of this - sorry I know it's a lot!!
