    • Thank you Bankfodder.  I used the term frustrated agreement purely based on my own research and what I found on the Govt's website, especially in relation to Covid.  My situation appeared to fit but if it doesn't, it doesn't. The length of time the actual works themselves will take is not written into the agreement but I was told 2 weeks, they are doing the interior ceiling and electrics too. I was prepared to accept the new date of 7th Dec until I was told I couldn't speak to their Director for two weeks and then found out that they haven't applied for building regulations yet, this is something else they are doing on my behalf.  As they can't order anything until they have the regs through I can't see how the roof is in the process of being made (which is what they keep claiming). I contacted the CAB as I wanted this wrapped up for the weekend and had two conflicting recommendations on this forum.  One to just let the credit card company handle things and others saying I must give more time.  I'm not complaining, am grateful for advice - just getting more and more confused as to what I can/can't do. If I can avoid it at all I would rather not go through another 6 weeks of this, waiting for them to prove that they can't manage the Dec.date.  By that stage it could well be feasible that the roof is in the manufacturing stage, where as at the moment it can't be, which would further complicate things. Based on all this and what the CAB said I sent the email below last night and received Homeview's response this morning. If it came to it that I retracted what I've said and allowed them to go ahead for 7th Dec. and they didn't manage that date, wouldn't it be the credit card company that would recover the deposit - not me?  BTW I raised a dispute with Capital One last night.

    • oh dear  i think you are in for a big shock   i doubt very much the loan is settled there will be £100's in unlawful fees i bet   we have numerous threads here about them in 2016 they were residing at   PO Box 1044 ipswich IP1 9YA   i would be sending them an SAR  don't ever ring them.   have you checked your deeds online recently? check they are on there. and has the loan ever been subject to legal action?   if not that would be a rare thing to us.   https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=Skye Loans&oq=Skye Loans&gs_l=partner-generic.12...0.0.1.951169.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0.csems%2Cnrl%3D13...0.0....34.partner-generic..1.0.0.1dXrS2w9t2c    
    • doesn't say will anything. read it properly and carefully.   only the owner of a debt can get one of the many fake/tame paperwork only solicitors to issue any proceedings and they would have to abide by the courts pre action protocol of 30  days letter first!   as it's owner...i can try and instruct my dog to sit, if it does is a totally different matter. if my neighbour, who doesn't own my dog, tries it, it would ignore them.   the bottom line is there is nothing anyone can do to you. gyms don't do court gym debts don't appear on credit files.   any DCA they might get to write to you ARE NOT BAILIFFS any a DCA has ZERO legal powers on any debt, no matter what it's type.   dx    
    • This letter arrived in the post today, please advise how to proceed. I know the forums say they won't action but am very worried about this

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Can I send the Preliminary letter before I have worked out the total of bank charges?

I am only just sending the letter asking for statements for the last 6 years, so it will take a few weeks atleast until I know the full total amount. I want to get the ball rolling.

 

I can only go back 6 years from the moment the bank are aware that I want the charges back so the sooner I send the Preliminary letter the better, is this right?

Hi CJHooker.

 

The answer is no.

 

How can you ask them to repay you an unspecified sum?

You need to enclose your schedule of charges that you are reclaiming. You can't do that if you don't know yourself!

 

Your question indicates that you have not read the FAQs so you are obviously trying to do this blind-folded.

 

You are planning to sue, in a court of law, a major financial institution with unlimited finances and an office full of corporate lawyers.

If you are not properly prepared, they'll eat you for breakfast and use your bones to pick thier teeth afterwards.

 

This is a self-help forum so you MUST be prepared to help yourself.

Its your claim.....Your money.....Your homework.

 

Please spend a couple of days, at least, reading the FAQs and the step by-step guide in the library section.

 

If you follow, faithfully, the methods outlined on this site, then you will win. But if you try to go your own way or ad-lib, then you'll only have yourself to blame if it doesn't quiite go the way you expect.

Hi

I will try and be as concise and short as possible.

 

I have a debt with Lloyds of £12k

I initially took out a loan for £3k,

I got into trouble

had to get a consolidation loan for £7k

 

I again got into financial difficulty and ran up an overdraft of £3k.

 

All of this has been with Lloyds.

I got into trouble with the loan because I was out of work or had little work

when I tried to claim on my loan insurance was told I could not claim because I was an agency worker,

 

I complained to the ombudsman who said I had been missold the insurance policy,

but he didn’t think it would have made a difference as to whether I could have afforded the repayments,

 

after his decision Lloyds offered to pay back the insurance policy and any interest (yet refused to do this when I first got into trouble)I

declined the offer because I feel I Can prove it would have made a difference.

 

The insurance was £30 a month,

I was being charged for unauthorized overdraft and for late payments,

I would not have got into so much debt if I hadn’t had these costs,

in fact I could have probably kept up repayments.

 

ntil a few months ago I was paying a reduced monthly amount of £100 then with out notice

(the bank had an old address even though I had rang to change it)

my debt was passed on to the debt collectors.

 

I have sent the letter asking for my statements for the last 6 years along with £10.

 

I am worried the debt collectors will start court proceedings against me before I can get my dispute up and running.

 

How can I hold them off?

If the ombudsman agreed I was missold the policy and

I can prove it would have made a difference financially what money should I try and get back?

 

Thanks for your help and thanks for a great site.

Ps. I am currently brushing up on my rights and what to do next, through your FAQ’s

Hi - take a bit of time to read up first to make sure that you have the facts before going too far ahead. Read the FAQs and template letters then have a good read around here to see how others are getting on.

 

Keep any progress on your own claim or questions that arise in a new thread in the forum for your bank to make it easier for others to follow and advise you. There's a set of links in my sig below that will help you find where all this useful information is. Well done for getting started! :)

 

Inform them that the account is in dispute and reason to stop further action.

Jeep (The Wife & I)

Halifax joint a/c (£3800 charges + £40 interest on charges over 11 years) - paid in full 23/06/06

Halifax joint a/c new charges £1100 - LBA sent 02/08/06

Halifax 2nd a/c (£1500 charges + £150 interest on charges) - partial payment received 13/07/06 (no s69 interest) - AQ filed 07/08/06 - Court awarded 50% of s69 interest (Bank didn't turn up!)

Halifax Visa (#1) Data Protection Act sent - statements arrived - £350 so far

Hi,

 

Have been only on CAG a short while but you can get lots of help.

 

First of all send a CCA letter to the debt collection agency, I believe they cannot chase the debt whilst the account is in dispute, but someone will have to clarify this.

 

You can get the letter template from the forum main page, there is hope and help, just ask!!

Debt collectors dont take you to court.

 

They just negotiate the debt and get you to pay it using peaceful means only. They might threaten 'legal action' and all that, but they are not regulated to do any professional litigation.

 

If you dispute a debt with a debt collector then they have to return the account to their client.

 

For large debts (£6-£7000 upwards) the debt collector will try and act as a mediator for resolving the dispute between you and their client.

 

With unsecured debts, the burden of proof is with the client that you actually owe anything.

Hi

I am currently claiming for bank charges and a miss selling of loan protection, I took out a loan in 2001 for £3000 I paid it off with a consolidation loan in 2003, I think I paid £4600 back. If I had loan protection on the £3000 loan should this have been credited back If I paid the loan off early? I can't work out why I paid £4600.

My view is that you should stick to the terroritory we are fairly certain we will be successful with, i.e. bank penalty charges and the related interest and put the loan miselling to one side for another action.

 

I do not know enough about your mis-selling position, or mis-selling at all.

Sorry I now see your question, I thought you were on about the mis-selling of the entire PPI.

 

This is not really my bag, but the terms and conditions (the small print) should cover this eventuality. If there is no express term to cater for early repayment in the conditions or you do not have them, I would write to them initially to ask for a refund and or the conditions.

Hi I'm hoping someone can help,

 

I defaulted on a loan and overdraft six years ago with lloyds

 

both of these have now been wiped from my credit history with equifax and experience etc.

 

I pay £40 a month to a collection agency(all I can afford).

 

Since the default I have never had any correspondence with lloyds, only Allied (the collection agency).

 

Out of the blue I get a letter from lloyds saying they have changed collection agency's

and I need to ring them to set up a new payment plan.

 

Will this effect my credit files again?

 

Why do you think lloyds have done this?

 

And could lloyds suddenly ask for all the money back?

Thanks for any help!

did this 'debt' include any PENALTY fees?

I think the two debts are separate but I pay £40 to Allied, I have only had contact with Allied since the default, do you think it's weird that lloyds are getting involved again is it just coincidence that its at the same time it's wiped from my credit history?

Hi all I have set up a new payment plan with the new collection agency.

Does anyone know what would happen if I stopped paying lloyds, could they still chase me for money if the original default is more than six years ago?

 

Cheers for any help

 

Is there any chances that after six years my debt has been stature barred ?
