    • Hang on, I'll get into trouble for this but really! 12 years paying a DD you nothing about.................... and then you blame D&G. They would have notified you at your last known address or email at each renewal, every year, with ample opportunity to cancel each year.   12 Years!!   Bad things happen in the world of CAG but you really must bear some of the responsibility here.   H    
    • Should have access to all the data on the account tomorrow.  latest response from Barclays.   Dear    Thank you for your patience while this matter has been under review.   I’m afraid I’ve not yet been able to get the answers I need from the relevant team to allow me to provide you with any more information. However, please be assured I will continue to work on this and I will provide you with a further update no later than 29 January 2021.   Kind regards   Customer Relationship Manager Barclays
    • I know it would be a hassle to put all that in. However certain things that help your case and destroy their WS would probably mean that even Simple Simon as stupid and greedy as he is, would probably decide that yours was one case that he did not want to challenge in Court. If he lost on the relevant land part, his whole business at Southend airport would be over.    He would have many motorists who have paid coming back to him plus claiming GDPR payments and every other airport that they control would probably have a claim against him too..   So you are best to hit him with a strong WS to stop him from going to Court. Will it stop him if you include all that. It should do but he may have the chutzpah to think that he can argue his way out of it.  So your choice.  
    • Thanks for that, point one just confirms what I thought, I will get back to work on it with those suggestions in mind. Cheers
    • Two quick and immediate points:   1. Do NOT get your employer to suggest you were exhausted. You shouldn't drive whilst exhausted and it aggravates the offences. But in any case, since you are pleading guilty to them it doesn't matter. The circumstances of each offence are not relevant when the court considers your EH argument. By that time you have been convicted of them and how or why they happened is not a consideration.    2. Instead your employer's letter to the court should concentrate on the "Hardship" that others (e.g. the company or your colleagues) will suffer if you are banned. It should also cover why no alternatives are available to them (e.g. are your skills and knowledge scarce such that they cannot easily be replaced; can they not train somebody else quickly to do your job). That sounds harsh but your employer will be asking the court to accept that they will suffer hardship. Part of doing that is to demonstrate that no practical alternatives are available.   Remember, you will get three points for each offence whatever mitigation you offer for them - that is the minimum. So you don't need to concentrate on that. Concentrate on explaining the exceptional hardship that you or others will suffer.

    • 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!

Asset/TM/Perch claimform - old lending stream PDL debt


Recommended Posts

Hi Andyorch

 

It depends; Some PDLs were issued under section 78 - these were similar to credit cards but were an amount that you draw down from as a running credit facility.

Some clarification would be needed to make sure this wasnt a running credit account and was a Fixed Term Loan Agreement.

 

I think Lending stream once upon a time may have done a product like this.

 

We could do with some help from you.

FWIW - Interestingly enough with this one - If they haven't sent the agreement then the defendant is unable to confirm under which section it falls :)

Hi all, update on my friends case with Assets.

 

He received today through e-mail some paperwork from Assets including

 

a) Credit Agreement with Lending Stream

b) Default notice from LS

c) Notice of sum in arrears from LS

 

Very interesting about Notice of Assignment as my friend did not received it at all.

 

He send his DQ, court received and Assets send they DQ to court as well. But he still did not received DQ copy from Assets.

Do they supposed to send copy to my friend also?

 

If someone wants to see the paperwork received from Assets i will ask my friend later on to log in from my laptop on to his e-mail to make some copies.

 

Thanks in advance for help.

Forgot o tell about Notice of assignment. It was send to my friends e-mail in doc. format with no companies logos on it and fully editable in Word, does not include even year of assignment, only date. And for account statement the last date of payment is questionable also (January 2014) and seems they made my friends £1 postal order as a payment towards loan.

default notice is void as it includes penalty/arrears charges.

 

unlucky Asset.

I would also take a look at page 8 of the pdf Fixed sum lending agreement £8 default charge for arrears Not back in 2013 it wasnt It was £10 They may charge £8 now which gives rise to my suspicion that the agreement provided is not original or even properly reconstructed.

Without me being too blunt here - How can a DN be void if it includes penalty charges.

Shouldnt a DN include the total amount you have to pay under CCA1974 to resolve the breach?

 

Not trying to ruin any chances here but i am genuinely intrigued by this :)

As I understand it A Default notice must not misstate the arrears and by adding charges to the amount does just that.. Unlike overdraft and bank charges which are deemed a fee for a service, loans credit card charges are not a fee for a service and are assessible for fairness under UTCCR.

The relevant case law is Woodchester Lease Management Services V Swain and Co.

 

If the account/debt total includes penalty charges then, at the time of default notice issue, the amount required to rectify the breech would be higher than it would otherwise have been had no penalty charges been applied to the account.

 

looks to me as though all the paperwork is a tissue of lies then...

The Court of Appeal has held that a default notice served by a creditor on a debtor, which substantially overstated the arrears due, was held to be invalid under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Facts. The case concerned an agreement for hire of a photocopier. The defendant failed to pay a quarterly instalment and the plaintiff served a default notice under section 88(1) of the 1974 Act, to enforce the agreement. The default notice was defective as it substantially overstated the arrears which were due. The defendant claimed that the default notice was invalid for failure to comply with the 1974 Act and the Consumer Credit(Enforcement Default and Termination Notices) Regulations 1993.

 

Decision. At first instance, the default notice was found to be valid, but this decision was overturned by the Court of Appeal. The court was influenced by the fact that the 1974 Act was enacted to protect consumers who, when contracting with financial organisations, are likely to be at a disadvantage when faced with complex standard form contracts. The onus is therefore on the creditor to inform the consumer what he has done wrong and what he is required to do to correct the situation.

 

The court held that the wording of section 88(1) of the 1974 Act, requiring the default notice to specify what action is required to remedy the breach of contract, must be read as meaning that a creditor should specify with reasonable accuracy the sum of money which the defendant had to pay to remedy the breach. The court commented that a deminimis error may be overlooked, but the substantial inaccuracy's in the case in question rendered the default notice ineffective.

Hi everyone!

It is a long time since my last post here.

 

I was looking for the way to post this update in previous topic but I didn't manage to do this and created a new one, sorry for the mess.

 

I finally get some updates from my friend in his case with Assets.

He needs to attend the court hearing on 7/10 and send the all supporting documentation to Assets or TM legal and court till 4 pm on 30/9. 

 

It is mentioned that there be permission for the Claimant to rely upon the witness statements of a named person dated 19/07/2019 pursuant to CPR.27.9(1)(a), also, the original documents must be brought to the hearing. 

I will need help from you, guys, to help further my friend.

 

As far as I understand there needs to be a witness statement.

What needs to be included in it?

 

My friend never attended any court hearings in all his life.

What exactly needs to be sent to Assets or TM legal and to court?

I really will appreciate any help to sort this out asap. 

 

Forgot to mention, the court papers are dated 23/08, he received them on 4/09 and on 05/09 he received an email from TM legal stating, that:


"Assets have assigned all of their rights title, interest, and benefits in and to your the lending stream account(s) referenced above to Perch capital limited.

 

Perch Capital has subsequently instructed TM legal to continue to manage the legal process and the collection of any outstanding debt on their behalf, This means that Assets no longer own the debt.

 

Perch Capital are now the legal owners, and TM legal have been instructed by Perch Capital as their legal representative in relation to your the lending stream account(s)."
