Nothing likely to happen within a few years of a repossession. All they will attempt to do, is write to the debtor, so they comply with the Council for Mortgage Lenders rules on trying to stay in contact with debtor. The rules were introduced around 2000, as some lenders were chasing up repo debts from the early 1990's, over 6 years after the debts were created. This was after having never written to the debtor. Bankrupty very unlikely due to cost and little chance of return. Mortage lender will most likely have a way they minimise cost of the debt to them, in terms of the financial risk to them. They may see the debt as a longer term asset, they can pass on to Debt Collection Agencies, where they have an agreement to share in any amounts collected. After say 10 years a debtor may be in a much better position financially, so the opportunity to recover the debt is much greater. This is one reason, one of my relatives borrowed a few thousand from family, to negotiate full and final settlement of a £30k repo debt. They were advised that in order to move on with their life, that settling the debt in this way was the best option. It really depends on your position. But someone with a young family, might want to move on and not have the worry of being chased for a debt years later.
Hi group, this involves a (APP) fraud, i deal with a company in India, they sent me good in Feb 2019 no problem. The problem arose when in April I received an invoice , but with fake bank details. I believed i was communicating with the supplier. I queried the payment details with the supplier, these had changed from the original payment details they had sent in the past, I had paid them 4/5 times over a 6 year period. I even sent over a copy of the international payment document filled out that i would be sending to check they were ok with how it was filled out, i was communicating with the con person who had intercepted the original payment details. I then went to Yorkshire bank 18th April with an already filled out international payment document, obviously I was unaware that the beneficiary was a fake . Now i normally use my same branch but this time i used a different branch . Payment details were to a bank in Spain my good were from India first flag not spotted. The bank clerk checked over the document amending Swift code of the beneficiary of which i initialled. Payment was slow I even went into another branch about 26th April and payment had still not been sent ,this was strange, so I believe Yorkshire bank had a few doubts. On the 16th April i realised i had been conned, i immediately went to Yorkshire bank and made a statement of the con and gave all details. Since then i have noticed that i had written the wrong account number in my details one digit was incorrect, this major point I believe may of saved me, Yorkshire bank still sent the money over 13K. I have highlighted there mistake and was told we knew it was my bank details anyway. My question if my bank account details were incorrect surely the payment should not of gone and I should of been informed and asked to either change the digit and signature the change. Yorkshire bank after one day fraud investigation send me an e mail refusing to reimburse my monies, to be honest it looked like a template letter,I have now lodged a complaint to be told i am in a que system. I have today sent a GDPR request. I am aware of new laws being passed on payments by the steering group, Yorkshire bank on their web site quote the following: My next options today will to do a letter before court action 7 day. Comments please thank you
but have they got PP for their signs and ANPR poles now? worthy of a new check. the fact that she has no proof of purchase is immaterial if it ever went to court they would have as you will demand.and they must..supply data/.a list of all car regs from anpr and all the data from the payment machine
I read through that today. It’s interesting, but can SWIM use the planning permission as a defence? Also florence’s case is quite different. They have since put signage up relating to number plates as far as I am aware. Also she had her ticket as proof of payment. As I said before SWIM dose not as it was thrown away.
Further, i contacted the Torbay Planning Department by telephone and email and they did an investigation for me going back to 1991 and they emailed me back staying there is NO APPLICATION OR GRANTED PERMISSION FOR ANYONE (Land owner or Leese) TO ERECT ANPR OR SIGNAGE FOR ENFORCEMENT OR FOR ANY REASON IN THE CROSSWAYS CAR PARK. So i really hope that helps someone else.
This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT
I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker)
I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded.
Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
so far so good.....
i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
so far so good....

Hot news for anyone who has suffered mortgage arrears charges, irresponsible lending or other unfair lender conductThe FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
