    • Well done Paul...delighted you have managed to resolve this.   Andy
    • It is usual policy to commence with a short tem lease, then when this ends to go onto a mothly renewable arrangement. As far as your safety is concerned it will be the same as it has been since the end of your short term tenancy. There is procedure to reclaim the property, but that is through what is called, the section 21 procedure, unless there is arrears, This gives you plenty of notice, talking months. If you are worried , the best thing to do is to talk to the new owners or their letting agents. It would be good to see the new contract the agents have given you.
    • Thank you.  Threads that point to success - or to mistakes - are very useful for motorists that will come on here in the future.   What you have done is utter insanity.  Despite being given on a plate two threads where motorists beat Athena in the same week as your case you've gone and handed over money to the fleecers.  It doesn't take much to work out that (a) not handing over money you don't owe to conmen is a better strategy than (b) handing over money you don't owe to conmen then trying to get it back.   The amount was never "going up" from £45 to £90 because it was never £45 in the first place.  It was always £0.  You were being charged for overstaying by eight seconds which is legally "de minimis" ("the law does not deal with trivialities").  You couldn't read Athena's signs anyway as the car park was pitch black!  Etc.  Etc.   Athena's position will be that you admitted the debt (otherwise why did you pay it?)  I hope chargeback goes well but often it's a battle to get banks to carry out chargeback and they will understandably be bemused as to why you paid this money if you thought you didn't owe it.  Bluntly you've just made life a million times harder for no reason.  It's like a football team manager who instructs the players to score two own goals in the first minute and then try to win the game.     That said, go for chargeback and good luck.
    • Same reason Councils like to use Agency workers at sharp end.
    • Not a fan of outsourcing in general, as I think control is lost.  And the companies used, can have problems meeting the standards required, as HB states above.    But I can see why it is attractive, as then Government department or principal company does not have additional staff with pensions and all of the other costs.   If you needed say 200 staff to cover work that would last a year, it can make sense to outsource the work, depending on what is required.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Papers from SAR shows shockingly very high charges from 2009 to 2013 within period I lost my job and was struggling financially, can I seek refund from OC?

 

Just after calling OC and asking for complaint procedure and address, I received letter stating small % of charges will be refunded but paid directly to Lowell?

 

What's your opinion guys?

The case law you can use is Edlington Properties -v JH Fenner.

 

Where a debt/account has been Assigned, the seller has no right to appropriate your money to the third party.(Carboot)

You need to write and tell the original creditor this and if they refuse to refund all of the money to you then you are able to issue proceedings in court to force them to refund this money to you.

Hi dx

 

thanks

 

but it does seems this reclaim letter applies to Ovd charges (mine is daily ovd charges/fees for planned and unplanned, some for about 6 months of charges are interest debited because it's high interest reward current acc.

 

said template seems to be for Credit card late fees and over limit charges.. right?

maybe BCOBS suits my case better?

Im not sure its a good idea to clutter your thread with discussions of claiming charges back which have no connection to this thread or court claim.

Hi DX

 

I'm unsure if APR applies on this, OC was charging Ovd fees not interest like Credit Card. What I'm think is to include 8% interest on reclaim total for refund I'm seeking?

 

APR applies to Credit Card and some other charges I think ....Please clarify if you think otherwise.

update: I've given hbos further 2 weeks (final notice) and still no reply yet. I only got unexpected call from her manager arguing that I can't claim more than 6 years refund bla bla...my only response was to demand written reply.

 

re six years limit:

 

firstly, I think the fact they transferred debt to DCA and are still chasing me for full balance it means I can reclaim everything they owe since account was opened.

 

secondly, I only found out details of all excessive bank charges after they responded to my SAR, previously letter of appropriation and letter requesting freezing of interest and accept offer of a taken were ignored by hbos.

 

Guys, what do you think please? I want to start now to prepare for statement of claim.
