    • Please would you give us the name of the appeals company which you went with. I'm curious but alos there may be others who have been let down by them and I think that it would be helpful to know. Thanks   I see also that you have been asked to post up certain information/documents and you haven't done so yet
    • The boiler had started losing pressure. I was getting concerned about it. ASG sent me  a letter saying that to keep the warranty valid I needed to power flush.  On the morning of the power flush the boiler failed completely and I turned it off.  The flush technician decided not to flush through the boiler as he was unable to get it to work and reported it as leaking.  I then got ASG to come out the next day. ASG refused to mend the boiler stating that the power flush had damaged it.  I have spoken to the flush technician who has explained he did not flush hot. He has done power flushes for many years and has never seen the damage alleged caused by a power flush.  An independent gas safe engineer has also stated that the damage could not be caused by a power flush.  The boiler was maintained annually by ASG according to the contract. It includes a fifteen year maintenance contract.  I was g I NG to sar them and try going either via the FSA or possibly court.

    • Thanks very much that makes absolute sense. That’s exactly my aim at the minute to secure my vehicle. That has to be priority before I worry bout unfair payments etc. I sent the letter of complaint in the hope they may enter into a payment plan still. If I thought I had the time until the 31st January then it allows me time to prepare next steps etc.  only problem is If there is a ban on repossessions why were they attempting to do it the other day and saying they still are. 
    • Yes ban ends  31Jan Time order would be good  but Just suggesting a free urgent alternative to buy a 30 day stay BOS are still the Wild West of lending  Law Commissions proposals were dropped by the Government  However once you have secured your car you have grounds for complaints IRL, unfair treatment ,etc Problem is once you sign a bos you have effectively transferred ownership of your vehicle

    • 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!

Arrows/drydens - 1998 MBNA card debt


Recommended Posts

Just an update. 

I have received today a letter from Drydensfairfax dated 29th May. 

My  CCA request was dated 16th May and the PAP was dated 25th May. 

 

The letter states:

We refer to the above matter and confirm receipt of your recent correspondence, the content of which has been noted. 

Please see attached your postal order. 

This is no longer required when requesting documentation.

 

Your account has been placed on a temporary hold while we contact our client with details of your query.

We will inform you of the outcome as soon as a response is received from our client.

We trust this is clear. 

 

However, if you have any queries, blah blah blah, etc....

Do I need to do anything at the moment? 

 

Many thanks

Many thanks for this. 

 

Should I reply and say I am stopping the £20.00 per month payment? 

I don't want to make the current situation worse, I last made a payment on the 25th May. 

 

If by a miracle they find the paperwork what implications, if any, would be caused by stopping the payments? 

I don't want to empower them to demand the full payment now!

They would have to produce an Original Signed copy of the agreement to enforce it, there is a good chance that they won#t be able to get one, a Reconstitued Agreement won't do for a pre 2007 debt.

We could do with some help from you.

An update.  No update! 

 

Since getting a letter from Drydensfairfax acknowledging receipt of the PAP letter, in fact I had that letter twice, dated 29th May and 13th June. 

 

Also a letter from Arrow Global dated 3rd June saying Drydens Fairfax are dealing with this on their behalf.

I've received nothing. 

 

The original CCA was dated 16th May. 

Do I do anything or sit back and wait? 

My original paperwork must be at the back of a very large filing cabinet!

Still no reply with regards to this. 

I've also just realised I was mis sold a PPI on this credit card between approx. 2001 and 2006, before the account defaulted. 

Can't remember the actual dates but I did get a call from them asking if I wanted to take out the protection insurance. 

 

At the time I was self employed and I did ask if it was possible to do this being self employed the guy I spoke to said yes. 

I believe this isn't correct. 

 

I paid the monthly payments and after about 18 months I cancelled them because of the extra cost. 

Is it possible to request the premiums back even if this account is subject to CCA and SAR

 

What's your advice?

yes ofcourse it is.

 

I would simply use the MBNA website PPI reclaim button

things close om the 19th.

Update. No update.

 

Still waiting for anything from anyone with regard to cca request

 

With regard to the ppi I have received acknowledgement that ppi did exist on this account. A couple of letters saying they needed more time and today a letter from mbna saying they currently don't have enough info to fully assess my circumstances at the time of the sale and could I just fill in an 8 page questionnaire so they can complete their investigations quickly.

 

Now are they trying to trip me up and wriggle out of paying or should I complete and return.

 

They ask questions such as my income at the time which I wouldn't have thought was relevant to ppi.

 

Thoughts please?

After the cca request Last year and many updates saying they were still working on it

 

I received a letter this morning from drydensfaifax saying “unfortunately our client has been unable to provide a copy of the Credit Agreement at present.  

 

Despite the above the balance remains due and owing and it is importance that the matter is addressed”

then follows “for completeness”

the original creditor ref
account opening date

date of default

balance outstanding

last payment amount and date.

 

it finishes with “if the above clarifies matters, we would ask that you now contact us to arrange payment”

you were being cash cowed by a fleecing DCA that holds no enforceable paperwork.

you were  blindly paying because you thought a dca or their dogs had some kind of magical powers over you when they hold nothing,

 

yours is not the next move...other than to make sure you are not being cash cowed on any other debts......?

Drydensfairfax letter today. First para:  this is a letter of claim sent to you in accordance with the Pre action protocol for debt claims.  It encloses info sheet which sets out the basis for sending me the letter, a reply form to be returned if I wish to respond and a financial questionnaire so their client can consider my financial situation when considering my offer. 
What  do I do now?
