    • Well I’d like to see it, but I respect the decision not to publicly upload something that someone could prepare better by seeing it.  Good luck with the outcome. Perhaps it could be shared securely post judgement?
    • going by your figures    £5239.50 was added to the £21k loan making the amount we borrowed  £26239.50.   so the PPIPCM% was: ppi/loan+ ppi*100=%   5239.50/26239.50*100=19.97% so lets call that 20% so 20% of any payment made on its date was PPI.   now you'll have to fill out the statint sheet as if you haven't yet been refunded then add in the payment you got on its date as a minus figure on the sheet on its date to the sheet   that will tell you whats outstanding from the refund   thus what you owe today.   dx          
    • Next you need to send off for a breakdown of the charges the Bailiff applied.  . Here's an example,  use and ADAPT at will and best sent initially by email backed up by a copy in the post. . "From: My Name My Address . To: Acme Bailiff Co Bailiff House . Ref: Account No: 123456 . Dear Sir . With reference to the above account, Can you please provide me with a breakdown of the charges.  . This includes: a - the time & date of any Bailiff action that incurred a Fee. b - the reason for the fee. c - the name(s) of the Bailiff(s) that attended on each occasion a Fee was charged. d - the name(s) of the Court(s) the Bailiff(s) was/were Certificated at. e - the date of the Certification. . This is NOT a Subject Access Request uest under the Data Protection Act S7 1998  You are obliged to provide this information. . I require this information within 14 days. . Yours faithfully . Ripped off customer" .
    • well no you did tell them you'd cancelled the fact that you omitted to pay one extra dd after that date is somewhat immaterial now.   your problem is you've done all this by email. you now need to stop using email and block and bounce them totally   using royal mail send harlands a letter offer them one months payment as you cancelled the dd without leaving 30 days for the next  payment to be taken. but refusing to pay any unlawful admin fees.   if they fail to accept that. you ignore everyone.   dx        
    • not your problem   use the custom google search on the top right    pcn claimform get reading up on what is to come if they proceed. and no you don't need to add to your defence.   dx

    • 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....

    • The 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.

How to Adopt abandon land

Recommended Posts

hi

i have maintained a small piece of land right next to my property that when i moved in some 12 years ago had a hedge growing on it and had to seek the councils permission to remove this hedge.

 

Now 12 years on having maintain this piece of ground i would like to Adopt it so as to put a vehicle on it as parking is difficult.

 

How do i go about this?

 

And is it possible for me to own it outright and if so how do i go about it?

The rules relating to adverse possession require that you have been using the land in a way which would not be permitted by the owner and that you have been using it that way unobstructed for 12 years.

 

The fact that you seem to have alerted the council to your use of it and even asked their permission to remove the hedge would suggest that your possession has not been adverse. You might have been better simply to remove the hedge without any permission. That would be quite good evidence that you had adversely possessed the land.

ok as it turns out the landowner is not the council and is totally unaware of me maintaining his land..

 

i did contact him last year to hold a Fete on his land in order to take out Public events insurance for this event.

 

Does this change things

you've simply done him a free favour by maintaining it.

and you've acknowledged his ownership by getting PL insurance etc for the fete.

 

why don't you simply seek permission to park there in exchange for your past and on-going maintenance...re gesture of goodwill both ways?

 

then take things from there?

Hang on a minute your definition of adverse possession does that mean that if the owner was unaware that i was using his land for 12 years it is now mine?

You held the fete on the piece of land you have been maintaining and now want to adopt?

I wasn't at all aware of these new regulations which in fact mean that the rules for adverse possession are even tighter than they used to be.

 

I'm afraid that by asking for permission for any use of the land, you are clearly occupying the land with consent. You have deferred to the right of the owner to withhold permission and so I would say that there is no chance at all that you are able adversely to assert any title over it.

 

When you embark on these kinds of ideas, you need to make sure that you are very familiar with the rules.

 

Adverse possession is mainly about usurping the rights of the owner.

Is this registered land, registered at the Land Registry? And the person you have identified as the owner is the registered owner?

 

From what you say I'm guessing the answer is yes, and that's how you know who owns it. But I'm asking because the rules in the link only apply to registered land. So if the land is unregistered and you found out by some other method who owns it different rules about adverse possession apply.

Correct - but in that case you would still have had adversely to possess the land – and you haven't by deferring to the landowner's right to grant permission.

 

Your possession is not adverse

Not actually true the land that i have been maintaining is between my property and the landowners it is where a hedge used to be. The fete was held on his land which i was not maintaining.On the deeds to my property it is not clear these were drawn up before the hedge was planted. AND ON THE PLANS IT IS A THICK BLACK LINE the area does not exist on the plans .although it must be there somewhere....?

aha makes more sense now.

I get what you mean.

 

you would have to get the detailed land registry stuff

use only the .gov.uk site there is a small fee.

 

 

mine had a thick black line too that was a pathway that was maintained by the org property owners thru till I got the property

 

turned out mine was an old pathway between land that was eventually turned into an access road for the for a WWII airfield, that was compulsory purchased and was 12ft wide, now its mine!!

it used to be that by occupying land for 12 years without interference you automatically gained the right to claim ownership. thsi chanegd some years back so now you need 12 years occupation and then inform the landowner that you intend to apply to the land regisrty to register title to the land. the landowner can then decide whether to agree this, sell you the land or seek possession. It may be that if you ask them they will say they are happy for you to continue to use the land but that doesnt create aright to seek possession but would only be a bother if they died or sold up..

This really is an oversimplification. The possession had always to be adverse –nec vi, nec clam, nec preccario.

indeed but i was trying to ppint out the difference where before 2002 an application to the land registry would be enough as long as you fulfilled the requirements and since then you apply to the land registry and the landowner(if registered land) will be notified of any application and has the right to challenge the application and that the challenged application will be denied unless certain specific criteria are met.

in the OP's case there are better ways of settling this than trying to claim "squatters rights"

I have to admit there's a bit of land near me I'd love to own

 

It's been neglected for about 15 years and if I thought I could get away with it I'd have fences around it already

 

It is actually large enough for a house as well
