    • Thanks I just had a quick look.  Will study over the w/e My friend does have kids. But it's a really dysfunctional family.  They don't talk.   Many years ago he sold 2 property assets and gave them a lot of money (enough to buy homes w/o loans) .  They've done nothing for him in the last 2 decades. And he altered his will so his new partner gets everything; the kids nothing (more). The 1st form I glanced at - to be deputy - asks for family details.   If I give his kids details I suspect the authorities may say they should get the deputy job instead?  Then  they will steal the money and give nothing to his partner. I can get a copy of the medical assessment  - and get it translated.  If need be.   This has all happened very quickly.  He got sick. And that must have kick-started dementia.   He was fine to hold a detailed conversation 6months ago; now he cant
    • Hi I think the only way around this as he lacks capacity is someone is going to have to apply to be a deputies via the Courts as he has assets here in the UK and a UK Bank Account which will take time and there will possible be Court Fees to make the application. Also if the Lack of Capacity (Dementia) was diagnosed abroad the person applying for deputies will need that diagnosis and it will need to be translated legally for the UK Courts so possibly cost for this as well. Also for reference although you were assisting them before the lack of capacity and had authority to act on there behalf that no longer stands due to there diagnosis of Dementia therefore Lack of Capacity so you no longer have any authority legally to act on there behalf unless the below is actioned or someone has Power of Attorney for that individual (which was setup before the Lack of Capacity) Have a wee look at these links: https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/topics/private-client/mental-capacity-international-aspects#:~:text=You might need to make,act within the foreign jurisdiction https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/office-of-the-public-guardian I have got to ask with the Dementia diagnoses are you 100% sure the diagnosis states they Lack Capacity as not everyone that gets a Dementia diagnoses may lack capacity initially. Now the Office of the Public Guardian link above you could also consider giving them a call just to give them a brief on this situation and get there advice on what documents etc are needed for deputies to be appointed as the person with Lack of Capacity is abroad.

    • 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 everyone

 

I'm finally ready to start my battle with CAP one. I've read through a lot of information on the forum, everyone seems so knowledge and willing to help. I didn't need to send them a S.A.R as I kept all my statements. I'm now ready to send the preliminary letter and will be claiming about £1500 over the past 5 years.

 

I'm getting a little confused now though about contractual interest, I'm not sure if that is part of Vamp’s spreadsheet that I used to calculate the charges. Can someone please explain the contractual interest to me?

 

Also does the letter look ok, I used the template in the library for bank accounts but changed it slightly.

Request for repayment of charges

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

ACCOUNT NUMBER: 5460 xxxx xxxx xxxx

 

I am writing to ask you to refund to me the charges which you have levied from my account over the last five years.

I now understand that the regime of fees which you have been applying to my account in relation to direct debit refusals, exceeding overdraft limits and so forth are unlawful at Common Law, Statute and recent consumer regulations. If you say that they are not, then will you please demonstrate this by letting me have a full breakdown of the costs to which you have been put by as a result of my breaches, in order to reassure me that your penalties really do reflect your costs.

Additionally, it has now been confirmed that your particularly high level of penalties are considered to be unfair per se by the OFT who reported on the 5th April 2006 and are therefore presumed to be unlawful in the absence of specific proof to the contrary.

 

I would draw your attention to the terms of the contract which you agreed to at the time that I opened my account. It is an implied term of that contract that you would conduct yourselves lawfully and in a manner which complies with UK law.

 

I am frankly shocked that you have operated my account in this way as I had always reposed confidence in your integrity and expertise as my fiduciary.

I consider that your repeated representations that your charges are fair and reasonable are deceptive and that they have deceived me into agreeing to pay them.

Your concealment of the true nature of your charges has prevented me from asserting my right until now.

 

I calculate that you have taken £xxxx plus £xxxx which you have charged me in interest for the sum which you have taken. Total £xxxxx

I enclose a schedule of the charges which I am claiming with this letter

 

I hope that you will enter into a sincere dialogue with me about this matter and I am writing this letter to you on the assumption that you will prefer to do this than merely respond with standard letters and leaflets.

 

I will give you 14 days to reply to me accepting, unconditionally, my request in principle and letting me know a date by which I will receive payment.

 

If you do not respond, or you do not respond positively, within this time period, I shall send you a letter before action giving you a further 14 days in which to reflect. I believe that these targets are more than sufficient for a large company such as yours with dedicated staff and departments.

 

After that, there will be no further communication from me and I shall issue a claim at the expiry of the second deadline.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Hi coll Welcome

I believe that you need Spreadsheet 16 from Vamps Google site. VAMPIRESS'S CHAMBER OF "CONSUMER ACTI...

 

Your letter looks ok but i think you need to state you are claiming Compounded Contractual Interest in your letter and at what rate your claiming it at, unlike if you were just claiming Stautory Interest and add it when you file a claim.

 

IE. I calculate that you have taken £xxxx plus £xxxx which you have charged me in interest for the sum which you have taken. To this i am also adding CCI at your current Cash Interst rate of 2.074% per month or 28.59% apr Total £xxxxx

I enclose a schedule of the charges which I am claiming with this letter

 

My % figures are from some time ago so you would need to check their highest rate.

 

HTH AL:)

Thanks for the suggestion e28bigalbexley, I’ve amended my letter. With some help from bill-k on my charges spreadsheet I think I now understand compounded contractual interest a little better.

 

I'm ready to send my prelim letter to start the process but I’m really scared because with the compounded contractual interest my claim comes to more than £4000. I used the interest rate quoted on their website for my card at 34.9%. What if my claim is the one they defend in court, I don't know if I’m up to standing in court against them with their expensive lawyers.

 

I'm also worried that they'll want me to pay off the outstanding balance of about £1100 immediately.

 

Sorry to go on I’m really worried. I’ve got two other claims to start with Lloyds and Citi cards, so I should get a move on but I’m really worried. Also how do I know if cap one has defaulted my account.

Lots of people have been where you are, CCI is a recent introduction but the banks/CC co's have been paying out. if you are unsure then you should stick to the stautory 8% (added when you go to court). Alternatively when you do file for court, in your particulars of claim you could initally claim for 34.9% but as a back up the standard 8% which ever the judge sees fit.

To find out if you have been defaulted go to Equifax or Experian websites (these are the 2 most used CRA'S used by the banks/CC co's) and get a copy of your credit file from both (£2.00 a time i believe) although they do run promotions (on line)from time to time it can cost you NIL. Use the prelim template in the libary and adapt the paragraph for the default, until you can get you credit file sent to you.

Try not to worry keep paying what you can, the max claim in small claims is £5000 before interest i believe but either way your fine and inside the max limit.

Now chin up big smile and carry on if your stuck come on here and have a chat and someone will put you at your ease, we are one big happy family:D

You can claim over limit fees and late payment fees, returned cheque fee.

you cant claim the interest ie. purchase interest is when you buy a pair of shoes using your card:o . cash advance fee is when you draw cash on the card via a cash point or in a bank. balance transfer fee is what it says (probably promotional and a lower interest rate for a time).

HTH:)

Well Compounded Contractual Interest is what you can charge them in the interest of fairness and balance (otherwise know as mutuality and reciprocity) basically they charge you interest at their top rate (34.9%apr) if you go overlimit/late payment, so you charge them the same rate for taking your money and charging you interest unlawfully.....Fairness and balance:D

Hi - sorry for the delay.

Peaches Mum: As AL says, you claim just penalty charges. But you can claim the portion of the interest that was charged on them, if you want. It involves a bit of extra work, though, so it's up to you to decide if it's worth the effort. You might find the links below useful, too.

 

I've been posting this up everywhere I can:-

Just an announcement from Batty Bill here. Vampiress has announced that her Google Chambers will be closed for a while, as they are undergoing a "Re-Vamp"

Mindzai's spreadsheet will not be affected by this, and should still be available.

 

For those needing compound interest spreadies, this is available for download, along with Excel versions of Vamp's Recommended #5 (for current accounts) and #16 (for credit cards) spreadies here:

Hi all

As per usual Cap have ignored my prelim letter, so I’m now going to send my LBA. I’ve got a quick question do I send the LBA to the same address as the prelim letter.

I understand that in the LBA I should reiterate that I’m claiming contractual interest and I need to reconfirm the amounts I’m claiming as I hadn’t put lines in the spreadsheet for months where I didn’t get charged.

I wish there was a way I could speed this up, I want to get it done before the OFT come back with a decision, which may mean an end to being able to claim these charges.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi everyone

I’ve been so busy the past couple of weeks that I haven’t had time to update you on my progress with capital one.

I sent my LBA on the 5th March. I was getting quite miffed that I hadn’t received a fob off letter from Mr. Udy.

I didn’t have to wait very long because three days later I received a letter from Mr Udy basically offering the difference between the old £20 fee and the new £12 fee which according to him comes to £388. I’m claiming over £4500 from cap one. So I’ll be rejecting this offer.

I wanted some advice on what I do now, should I accept his offer as part payment and tell them I’ll continue on to filing a court claim which is due to be done on 16 March.

or

I reject the offer completely, and continue to file a court claim

All ideas welcome.

Thanks
