    • Hi Stu and dx1000uk,   I have done the online assessment and as I suspected I already receive the maximum benefits available ot me. Yes I was referring to the fact that some times I know that non-payment of council tax can lead to imprisonment so thanks for clarifying. But let's say I can't make their demands for payment and they do send bailiffs in, I assume these are the type of bailiffs I can just not let in and then after a certain amount of attempts they give up right? But does the council then not send the police round? This is what I can't work out and worries me. The council already know that I am struggling and can't make the payments but when do I get my chance to tell a court or the police that it's not that I don't want to pay but that I can't pay?    Walshy
    • As far as I am aware, bus stops/stands come under the aegis of the Road Traffic Act not Byelaws or private parking companies so I can see no reason why they even have the right to issue you with a PCN.

    • Where you live (entitledto.co.uk)     i will guess you mean regarding the ctax stuff you might have seen.   thats for people that won't pay not people that can't pay...as is your situation..
    • Your client already settled one claim of an unfair contract before it reached the courts, and they know from previous correspondence that I am aware of that case. please expand upon this case you refer too.   You believe you had provided proof timeously to demonstrate your earnings were below the threshold, therefore a default notice should not have been issued on 15th October 2018 and the account should have been deferred. - have you a copy of the DN?     I believe I have complied with the requirements as set out in the relevant legislation to have had the loan deferred and subsequently written off upon my 50th birthday. - when did you reach 60yrs?   In relation to the above matter being “non-existent” or “not owed”, our client’s stance regarding these points remains as previously set out in their final response letter dated 2 September 2019, they will not be addressing these points again and you remain liable for the full balance outstanding. have you a copy please?

    • 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!

Good evening all,

 

I've done a bit of research trying to close accounts which led me to requesting CCA's to Cabot. I sent two for two different accounts which they took off Halifax (1 x CC & 1 x Current Acc Overdraft). I posted the following to them:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Account No:

 

With reference to the above agreement, I require you to supply the following documentation before I will correspond with you further on this matter.

 

1. You must supply me with a true copy of the alleged agreement you refer to. This is my right under your obligation to supply a copy of the agreement, under the legislation contained within s.78 (1) Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

2. A full statement of account.

 

3. A signed true copy of the deed of assignment of the above referenced agreement that you allege exists.

 

4. A copy of any other documents referred to in the agreement.

I understand that under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (sections 77-79)

 

, I am entitled to receive a copy of any credit agreement and a statement of account when I request it. I enclose a payment of £1 which is the fee payable under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

I understand a copy of any credit agreement along with a statement of account should be supplied within 12 working days.

 

I understand that, under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, creditors are unable to enforce an agreement if they fail to comply with the request for a copy of the agreement and statement of account.

 

A speedy response would be appreciated to resolve the matter amicably.

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Yours faithfully

 

THE LETTERS WERE RECEIVED ON 17TH/18TH JULY AND TODAY I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING LETTERS:

 

Thank you for your CCA request etc etc...

We currently do not have this information on file.

 

However I have requested the relevant details, which include a copy of the credit agreement, statement of account and relevant terms and conditions from the original lender.

 

You have requested a copy of the Deed of Assignment.

 

Please be advised that the DOA is a confidential document between Cabot and the original lender.

It does not contain any personal details relating to you or your account and is not available for disclosure.

 

We sent you a Notice of Assignment for your account to your address, which is sufficient to confirm our ownership of this account.

Only the courts can request this... Blah blah blah.

 

A couple of things here... I asked for a true copy, they are referring to simply a copy. If they do obtain a copy, is this enforceable?

 

Also is it acceptable what they are saying about disclosing the DOA to me?

 

I don't ever recall being sent a Notice of Assignment, if I did, is this sufficient to confirm ownership and enforceable?

 

I have been currently paying towards what they are claiming, on a monthly basis via DMP. The next payment is due in a couple of days.

 

Should I continue paying or is it advisable to stop until they wholly action my request?

 

Thanks in advance and any help/advice/feedback is much appreciated! I'm looking to get a mortgage by the end of the year so I can get my son into the school I/he wants.

 

Many thanks.

didn't get that CCa request from here did you..

looks like FMoTl twaddle too.

 

was this for the card or the OD [which CCA doesn't apply as theres no agreement to sign]

 

if on the card they've failed the 12+2 working days time limit stop paying

 

for the OD i'd stop paying anyway

 

what other debts are you blindly paying thru this DMP , which I hope is a free one not by a fee paying bunch of fleecers.

 

if you've got defaults on your credit file

then a mortgage is out the windows till they vanish on their 6th birthday along with the whole account never to return..but that doesn't mean the debt is wiped.

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

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

Thanks for your response. No I got the template from this website... [removed - please read our rules}

 

I got the same letter for both CC and OD,

although one letter (OD) says thank you for continued payments

whereas the other one (CC) says I don't currently have a plan with them, which I do through DMP!

 

 

The DMP is through Payplan. The 12+2 days is up on the 6th August.

I got the letter signed for which was received on Weds 18th.

 

I'm paying for others too, one of which I have sent another CCA request to Link Financial (bought from Co-op).

 

I do have defaults but I'm led to believe there are mortgage lenders who accept people on DMP, or IVA etc.

 

Cheers

 

To add to this - I have also had a settlement offer from them on the OD (45% of the balance) in June 2017 and another one (60% of the balance) July 2018 for the same OD.

if you are getting discount letters then pers id stop paying that debt

 

cca is 12 working days then

 

not sure where you got the bit about dmp/iva from

another load of ole twaddle.

 

99% of highstreet lenders will not touch you with defaults.

back street brokers might but you'll get ripped off om the rate.

 

list your debts and who get paid through pp

how long have you blindly been paying all the dcas via payplan?

I personally know somebody who got a mortgage with an IVA so I know its possible as that's more frowned upon. I appreciate I won't get as good a deal having a DMP to my name though.

 

Been in DMP for about 5 years. So defaults will be gone within 2 years.

Hello all.

 

I am currently paying into a DMP with PayPlan and all of the creditors are shown on the CRA's except one, which I cannot find on any of the CRA's.

 

I was wondering if this loan remains the only one outstanding and not showing on my credit file, mortgage lenders won't know that it's outstanding? Correct?

 

Also should I still be paying this debt?

 

I have no idea when it was taken out or what the original amount was.

 

Any advice appreciated and will be rewarded with a donation once i'm in the black!

Evening all,

 

I sent a complaint letter to Halifax (despite the debt already been sold on to Marlin Europe/Cabot).

They said part of my complaint was outside the 6 years therefore disregarded that part however, the other part does go on to say...

 

"I will arrange to waive a portion of the debt equal to the charges you paid on the current account (overdraft debt) since Sept 2016.

Those charges total £861.

I understand the debt has been sold to Cabot Finance so we will buy back this portion of the debt to effectively write it off.

This offer is made without any admission of liability"

 

The debt is about £3,300 but interestingly, back in June 2017 they offered me a settlement figure of £1,852.

I have since requested from Cabot a CCA agreement which they have not got.

I also requested Halifax my SAR, which returned very very little info.

 

Any help on the following question would be so helpful:

 

- Should the £861 be paid directly to myself as opposed to buying back a portion of the debt.

 

- They say "to effectively write of the debt" - does this mean £861 of the £3,300 debt is written of, or does it mean they sold the debt to Cabot for less than £861 so they have bought it back for what they paid and written the whole lot off?

 

- With Cabot seemingly having no leg to stand on, if the debt is still owed (and not written of as mentioned in the last question), should I make a very small F&F settlement offer?

 

- What should my next step be?

 

Many thanks in advance

i'll upload now.

 

Yes I sent CCA Letters to all who aren't original lenders. Since Cabot told me the debts are unenforceable, I haven't paid anything to anyone. My Nationwide has recently been referred to Moorcroft. Payplan hve now 'disowned' me for not playing ball.

You should CCA the ones that are still with the OC's too.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

you are not complaining 3 yrs after you realised

you only realised very recently that you could make an IRL complaint.

 

so complain that it is unfair as you didn't realise

and they cant invoke the 6yrs rule on the OD nor the credit card.

Would you have a document that says that they can't invoke the 6 year rule on an OD or CC?

 

I'm replying to the letter shortly, in your opinion, should I respond with the approach that I didn't know I could make a complaint or that the 6yr rule can't be invoked?

 

Many thanks again for your help.
