    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

Santander Have blocked my account - supposed fraud - want to raise a court claim to get my moneyback - help with how please?


Recommended Posts

Hello CAGgers,

 

I have a question on how to proceed with reclaiming money from  Santander please. 

 

The bank closed my account due to an inflow (£3k) which came from a car sale and have refused to release the money to me. The account has been closed and we have been on the matter for over 60 days and I am about to go to court.

 

I have obtained an SAR from the Santander and I can see that the account was flagged and then closed on advice from the fraud team. What is baffling is the fact that they refused to release my money.

 

I would like to know which forms (and which regulations to refer to in my particulars of claim) to use for this type of action as it is not Credit/Debt related.

 

Many thanks

usually down to money laundering rules. barclays are the usual favourite for this happening to people

not heard of Satans bank doing it before.

have they also trashed your credit file with a CIFAS marker?

 

do you have written proof of the sale of the car?

and proof from the buyer that they made the BACS transfer?

Hi dx, thanks for your response.

 

they haven't touched my credit file actually and I have all receipts and a proof from the buyer (screenshot of bank statement). They asked to see a V5C and I told them that I don't have it, this is the bone of contention. They have now closed the account but still refuse to issue a check for my balance.

and what do they want it for?

to prove I actually sold the car. I have resolved to go to court and the SAR shows all the notes on the account. The fraud department flagged this and despite all entreaties, they refused to release the money. The buyer has send across a screenshot of his bank statement and I have the sales receipt showing I sold the car. I have also asked DVLA for confirmation. 

 

Do you know which legislation I can rely on please and which forms to use as I think I have all I need to show proof of legitimacy i.e.

 

1. Sales receipt (Issued by me to buyer)

2. Bank statement Screenshot (showing payment) and letter from buyer confirming they purchased the car.

3. Letters to CEO and their responses

4. SAR

5. Cover Note. 

 

it has passed 80 days now and I believe if the NCA is involved it should show up in the SAR, in any event I don't mind engaging relevant authorities and showing the proof and transaction history. 

 

thanks

You wont see CIFAS on your CRA for something like this. You have to go direct to CIFAS for that.

However... It is possible that they just closed your account because they werent comfortable about something but didnt trigger AMLR

 

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

You will have to serve a Letter before claim first and exhaust their internal complaints procedure in line with the Pre Action Protocol before issuing a claim.

Hi Andyorch,

 

thanks for your response. I have gone through the CEO channel with multiple correspondence (letters) to no avail hence the choice to go to court.
