    • The Tories election campaign is basically whatever the Daily Mail and Express write about as concerns of the 'British people'.  The latest speech by Sunak about sick note Britain is the latest. Perhaps there needs to be a discussion on the mental health crisis that is stopping a large number of people from working.  When people are having to wait for months for a Mental Health assessment and then a very long time for any therapy treatment, then that is not going to help. The problem with many politicians speeches is that they identify problems, but when it comes to solutions that are going to cost billions, plus take many years to put into place, they shy away from the practical actions that would be required. Instead they will come up with some slight tinkering actions at a cheaper cost, that won't make much difference.  There are probably  hundreds of thousands of disabled people who would like to work, but many employers won't offer them employment as they are not willing to make the reasonable adjustments to make it happen. If the Government pledged to support employers financially with the costs that would be incurred, then I am sure we would see many more disabled people in workplaces.
    • yeah the outstanding balance is correct as I was already in a payment plan with hmrc up till about a year ago when they suddenly stopped taking payments from my bank so me being naive I just left it assuming they would get back in contact to resume payments but instead I got this letter.. I am just glad it won’t show on my credit file as I have only just got it to excellent   
    • I've had a look on their site to see if there is a way to download photos, but haven't found anything. The best thing is to send them a SAR on Monday.  Invest in a 2nd class stamp and get a free Certificate of Posting from the post office. That way they will have to produce the original invoice, a windscreen ticket if it exists, photos, etc.  
    • So today I’ve recieved a letter from J&P after a long time this time with forms attached to respond back about how much I can repay etc and that if I do not respond within 30 days court proceedings will apply   I had wrote to NBD bank to inform them of my new address and to resolve this matter last month, but I haven’t had any confirmation or heard back from them. Should I write to them again?
    • Not consumer credit, so won't show on credit records. Are you 100% sure the Tax Credits payment is correct ? Did you receive an overpayment letter ? If not, there is no immediate need to set up a payment plan. Contact HMRC submitting a subject access request and if there is doubt about the overpayment amount, write to ask HMRC for a breakdown calculation of any overpayment amount.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi all, spent the last hour navigating round the site for answers :-(

forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this enquiry.

 

In October 2014, due to ill health and having to give up a very well paid job, I couldn't satisfy my debts, before illness I could easily afford car payments etc.  I was advised  by my IFA that bankruptcy would be the only way forward. March 2015, I went through the process of declaring myself bankrupt, a very soul destroying process I have to say.

 

I recently had occasion to check my credit score through Transunion, Equifax and Experian, and find that most of my old debts have disappeared from my report apart from 2 from O2 and one from FGA (for car loan),  They appear to have issued continuous default notices and renewing the entry every year. 

 

The first default notice from FGA appeared 2 months after the Bankruptcy, and the notices from O2 7 Months after,  I have written to FGA twice and have had no reply and O2 want a certificate of Discharge which cost £70, something I can;t afford.  I've been trying for weeks to resolve this an getting nowhere, can anyone help please

How did you apply for you Bankruptcy...if it was done on line there is no fee for the certificate of discharge.

Your discharge from bankruptcy will happen automatically, so you won't necessarily get proof sent to you.

Email the Insolvency Service [email protected] to get a free confirmation letter. You should only ask for this after the discharge date.

also i believe under the IVA rules a debt should be marked as defaulted in its summary on or before the IVA start date. not just D in the calendar section.

 

the debts should not be showing at all.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

Hi Andy, I applied online but was required to go to court and and give them relevant paperwork and feel

 

All my credit card card debts for three cards no longer show, just O2 for "loan" and outstanding amount for service charge,

 

I disputed this at the time as I was able to pay the service charge monthly call charges if you like, but they refused and disconnected my number as they pulled the plug i didn't consider that I was liable for any future charges. 

 

FGA have just today renewed the entry on equifax, the CRAs should Chase this in my opinion as it appears to me to be a false entry.

opps sorry i was on a small screen an thought IFA was IVA..:lol:

 

i believe the rules are the same though

all debts must be marker defaulted (I'e same as issuing a Default Notice) on or before BK .

 

the CRA's should know this if you provide proof of BK and everything should be removed.

Hi thanks for the info, I'm still struggling,

I have a letter of discharge so discharge was one calendar year of bankruptcy.

 

What is confusing for me is that there are notices of default with the CRAs that are after the date of my bankruptcy but before I was discharged.  I was under the impression that default notices can't be issued after the bankruptcy date.  I could do with some clarification on this if possible.

 

I have written to the CRAs and they tell me it is up to the client (My  Creditors) to add remove entries.  However if those entries should be there how can I bypass the (creditors and insist the CRAs remove the entries?

 

Sorry if I seem a bit hapless it is worrying me as the years are creeping up on me and I don't want any issues on my credit report should anything happen to me.

 

Thanks again

 

Kind regards

Ken

might be worth just letting them know you were declared bankrupt, case number, date and court it was heard in...

and the discharge notice 

 

demand they remove all trace of any debt that was within the BK, tell them they have 14 days or you will raise a serious complaint with the ICO and seek financial damage.

 

it is NOT solely down the the named creditor, though you could hit them with the threat first.
