    • Only asking because I want to get my facts right before I approach the bank! Yes, BT is coming out of the same account.
    • not if they want to make the OP the named claimant no!! let them take the other party to court themselves!! the op can be a witness then..   one bitten...read this thread..      
    • eh? no valid contract!   is the BT coming out the same bank AC?  
    • Hi Sorry but i am still stuck on where to go next in all of this.   This week the dealer contacted me at the 11th hour to talk repair of my car. He seemed only interested in the repair in speaking of just one of the problems  and i was struggling to get him to commit to the other fixes required. I asked him about the service history log and the proof that he had changed the cam belt.   He has told me that he will chase the service log book through his accountant. (I'm confused why through his accountant) and that his mechanic would provide the paperwork for the cambelt work, although he is away until September. (I dont believe any of this. He has had months to do this)   Back in June he said in a text to me that he would get my car fixed once his supplier opened for business from the 4th July and arrange a date with me. From that date onwards i was unable to contact him. He didn't answer his phones or reply to my texts or answer machine messages. He has told me now that his business was closed during that time.    I asked him about the 3 recorded messages i had sent him that were signed for. He said that he has not seen any letters. Somehow though he has sold 10 cars throughout May, June and July. I have been watching his stock level on Autotrader and he has been advertising his new stock and his sales on facebook throughout this period. Also he has chosen to contact me this week on the night before i was stating i would take action.   Frustratingly i expressed my desire to return the car to him for a refund and he has told me that because i didn't reject the car in the first 30 days then that wont happen. How could i reject the car if his business was apparently closed, we was not responding to me other than initially putting off any attempt at repair work.   I am feeling completely cheated by this man. He has even accused me of purchasing a car from him that i knew was faulty!!    I have shared my story recently on a Land Rover forum and interestingly a member of the forum has come forward and told me that he had also test drove the car before i did. He said the car displayed the errors i am experiencing and that the dealer had acted suspiciously. This forum member has offered to write me a statement if its of any use?   September the car is due an MOT and it is likely to fail because of the work he has not done. If i take this matter to court and it takes 6 months then what do i do if the car fails the MOT or the faults cause the car to brake down? I need this car for travelling to work and back.   Is it a viable option for me to get the car fixed myself and then claim that cost at court? I need a working car and i do not trust this dealer. He is clearly telling lies and i dont trust him completing the work to a satisfactory level if at all. Im assuming he is wanting to wait for HIS MECHANIC to get back from his holiday too. Strange time to be away for several weeks.   If i was to get my garage to do the repairs i could also ask them to confirm if the cambelt was ever changed. I'm convinced it wasn't.   Please advise. I am incredibly stressed out.
    • Do they need the insured's permission?  Won't the insured have agreed for the insurer to have conduct of any claims and to assist in any court case(s)?   I don't understand why the OP is reluctant to assist their former insurer?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding a debt collection agency that is hounding me at the moment...

 

I have a few very old debts,credit cards and Catalogue debt that will be statute barred come December but this debt collector is now planning to issue CCJ's on them...

 

There's a couple of these debts where i have grounds to dispute them as they are actually not my fault as the originally company just didn't attempt to take any payments off me for over 12 months and when they realised they demanded all the back payments all at once...

 

My question is are there guidelines on how long it should take a dca to go for CCJ's ??or can they effectively stretch the effects of them out on your credit file over 12 years by waiting the 6 years before issuing CCJ's which will then last for another 6 ???

 

Thanks

moved to DCA forum

not sure why you posted in the bailiffs forum

 

a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

and have ZERO legal powers.

 

when did you last pay anything to these debts?

list them please

 

original Creditor

when taken out

what type of credit

last payment date

whom owns it now

credit file defaulted date


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

Again sorry but i thought the question was pretty simple not vague....perhaps its the way i phrased it.

 

The last few debts that haven't got CCJ's against them are coming up to statute barred as i stopped paying my debts in December 2012..

 

All i was wondering is if they were to gain CCJ'S this close to the 6 years would they be able to chase me for another 6 years and would it still affect my credit file, not that it would bother me much?

 

There's nothing i can do about it i was only looking for the answer.

..i can't afford to pay them anything as my financial situation is about to get even worse because my wife is being made redundant in two months and we're barely managing now...

 

I know that there's a timescale for a default to be registered and thought they may be such guidelines about how long it should take for them to go for a CCJ ?

whos tells them its SB'd?

doesn't stop them getting a Backdoor CCJ if they don't know where you live

i'e you never told them or the original creditor in writing you have moved

 

everything will be filed to an old address , 1st thing you'll know about would be bailiffs at your door.

 

use the red toolbar search CAG box

let us help you.

I'll tell them it's statute barred when it's time to do so....

 

i've been at the same address for 15 years i haven't moved,

they know exactly where i am as they were sending court bailiffs to my address most of last year,

they had to change them as after i spoke to one they never came back because there's no money to pay them...

.plus the burnt out cars on my street i think scared them off...

 

i got into way too much debt towards xmas 2012 and sent all my creditors letters asking for reduced payments and giving them my income and expenditure breakdown and to date i've still not received a response off a single one in fact one even raised my interest rate afterwards.

 

.. luckily i can go back on my online banking and the last payment made to any of them was December 2012...

so i know the last one will be statute barred at the end of this year..

 

They have got three CCJ's according to my credit file which is why they sent the court bailiffs last year..

 

I'm resigned to my fate as apart from two of my debts they are my fault i just couldn't service them all and those two if push comes to shove i will defend in court or at least point out why i don't owe them, thats if they'll actually transfer the cases to a local court this time unlike the last CCJ which i requested by moved but somehow was still rubber stamped in Northampton...

 

As i said i only really wanted to know if there were timescales about when they need to apply for the CCJ's or can they make them last almost 12 years by leaving it till last minute before doing so ??

Thanks

ok good that explain a few things.

at least you will get notification...probably a letter of claim...ideally if you do you shouldn't ignore that one:madgrin:

 

once the defaulted date on a debt reaches 6yrs, the whole account will vanish from your file

obv that doesn't equate to the owner not being able to still do court..

and as with the two CCJ you have, they'll show in the public record or judgement section for a further 6yrs, but the debt itself, again as you've probably noticed, does re appear on your file, just 'a CCJ relating to the debt.

 

once you hit the state barred date [6yrs from payment or last time you wrote and signed a letter]

you can send our statute barred letter

following that they should back off under the new conc FCA rules

No limit as such...they will try to refrain for as long as possible before it goes statute barred...so 6 years....then they can run up section 69 interest (8%) within any possible claim.

 

But some still issue claims that are statue barred.....because you would be surprised how many people dont even know what statute barred means.

 

Default Markers and CCJ Markers are not connected ...they can only show for 6 years.
