Hi my partners motability lease runs out in june 2019

The higher rate disability payment is due for renewal in March 2020

According to the garage there must be twelve months left on the claim to lease a new car

They have told us we need to

A) ask for the claim to be renewed early

B ) Hand the car back at the lease expire date and sort it out ourselves ( Buy a car on finance ect)

I have read in the motability contract that in the above circumstances that they will extend the contract

It seems when reading the contract that 3 years is the minimum contract time

Has anyone had any experience in extending the contract

our neighbour had this from their supplier

go tell Motability what they are doing, they'll sort it out.


the dealer was told off for trying to force Motability customers to take out car finance which ofcourse makes them money.

Ok thanks was not really happy getting the claim re assessed nearly 12 months early this PIP benefit is a bit of a lottery and you could just as easy get it stopped

My idea would be to extend the lease until its re assessed at tbe correct time she's happy with the car and it's been well looked after low mileage and hasn't been abused

we have a WAV on mb for my dad, it was a 5 year lease in 2012, in january of last year we extended it no problems because A, it did what we wanted and were happy with it and B, couldnt be bothered with all the faffing about to get a newer one, I think lease was extended by 3 years.

Yes, you can extend 12 months at the time.

As far as i know, no upper limit.

    • Yes, I think you may have mentioned this advice not to pay until the issue was resolved somewhere else in these discussions. Can you tell us a bit about that please. What date was that? Have you got anything in writing or simply a reference to it in the disclosure? Did you then resume paying despite that advice? Why? The advice to you not to pay is very helpful to you. What particular issue were they referring to that needed to be resolved before you should start paying?
    • The claim is for £7K odd. The settlement offer is for approx. £3K.  'I THINK' the £4K discount is suspiciously like the amount of interest HBOS preloaded to the credit and (and I never got a rebate). Earlier posts refer.  Anyway, it looks suspiciously like.   Their stoopid £50 charges are just powder added to my ammo, the real issue is the interest.  Also, the APR is way out (above the de minimis). However, it is not I gather a prescribed term, but does call into question the amount owed under an otherwise valid CCA.     
    • Sorry, in regards to the letter. Literally a template letter I’ve pulled from online.    I do have dates, can find them on.    and also the hardship was them telling us not to pay until issue resolved (got that in disclosure) so left it for a few months, then them turning around saying you shouldn’t have been told that and you’ll have to pay higher amount to catch up (got on voice recording). 
    • Hi all,  a few days ago I received a letter from lowells telling me that court proceedings are being taken ( a bit late for that as I have had the claim form for over a week). I have not heard anything as yet from Lowell solicitors since sending the CPR31:14 off to them. I need to be doing my defence on Mcol website but would appreciate any help on how to word it. Any suggestions would be appreciated guys as I have never done anything like this before. Thanks guys.
    • Quiet...not really your last post was only 17 hours ago.Have you had any further thoughts with regards to your intended defence ?  Post a copy of your intended draft here then we can  pool some ideas and add to it.   Andy

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      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.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
