    • I posted a reply earlier which I have now deleted because I realise that I hadn't read your story correctly. You have laid out £1000 on repairs to a vehicle which according to you is probably in need of further repairs. Although you have been rebuffed by the dealer at your first asking, your position would be much better had you provided the quotes for the repair work to the dealer in advance so that he had forward knowledge and was able to present his own opinions before you went ahead and spent the money. This kind of transparency is essential when you are in conflict with somebody who may later on dispute the value of the work which was carried out. Fortunately you have had more than one opinion from independent garages and this will be very helpful to you. So in order to recover your money, you have prepared a letter but which is rather open-ended because it simply says that you would like to have a reply within 14 days or else you may go and see a solicitor. Given that you have been rebuffed quite peremptorily by the seller of the vehicle, I don't think that this is going to make very much impression. You need to take control of this and assert yourself. I notice that you say that you are too exhausted to look around for a replacement vehicle. Do you have the stamina to conduct a small claim against this dealer? It's very easy but it will require some tenacity and there won't be a quick solution. I can expect to go on for six months or so before you get a result unless the dealer decides to put their hands up. I would avoid going to a solicitor if I were you because first of all you incur expenses which you will not get back from the dealer. Also the solicitor will start off by sending letters which will simply delay things further and of course will incur further costs for you. You haven't told us the name of the dealer – even though you have been asked by another member of the site team. He also haven't told us anything about the car – the make, model, year, mileage and price. I think we will have to modify your letter based on whether you think that you would be prepared to take your own small claim action. If you do take a small claim action then your financial outlay will be fairly minimal and everything you do outlay will be recoverable – assuming that you win. On the basis of what you say, I would guess that your chances of success are much better than 90%. However, there is the issue that the dealer may try to challenge the value of the work you have had carried out because you didn't give him any advance notice. We will have to deal with this.  
    • So Guys, After sending the last letter as everyone else  here I got a reply from Moriartylaw with a statement that ADCB instructed them to act on their behalf and a copy of all my credit card bank statements. Not sure what to do now. They want me to respond and supply them with a list of asset and liabilities.    please the attachment of the letter. moriartylaw.jpeg.pdf
    • Okay, let me start again. In terms of planning, is it not enough to say they don't have it since it's not shown on the council site? If not, if I ring Stockport planning would they put in writing that there's no planning?   I could contact the land registry to find out who the land owner is. If I contact them directly maybe they'll tell me if they have a contract in place. If they ignore my request too then should I be doing other things to find this out?
    • I'm trying to work through this step-by-step as I read the story again. There was a dispute over a will in respect of your grandfather's house but the dispute was eventually abandoned and it seems that the house was apportioned to your mother and her brother who presumably were the only two children. The will was unsigned and so we could say that the house passed to the two of them under the rules of intestacy. You then decided to buy the house for £50,000 and presumably the money you paid was divided between your mother and your uncle – you are the owners of the house. This was in 1999. We talking about 30 years ago here and so in respect of most legal questions I would have thought that some limitation period applied. (However the issue of the trust has been raised – and this wouldn't be affected by limitation) However, presumably the house was bought at a proper value given the market at the time and any work that it needed doing. Presumably the house was properly conveyed. Although a lot of things have passed – including home improvements, tenancies et cetera, from the store you have told us, neither your parents nor your uncle have been involved in this at all. Now you have received a letter from your parents saying that the house is really theirs and that you have simply been holding it on trust for them and they now want it back. Is this a reasonable summary of what has happened?   Although you have written a fair bit about bills, tenancies, and that you have lived in your parents home for some of this 30 years, I'm not sure what relevance that has to the problem. I have to say that your explanation is very unclear. A bit rambling in fact. If you think that part of the story is relevant then maybe you'd like to express it all a little more clearly and say in what way you think it is relevant to the problem. You are much more familiar with the story then I am but I don't see that those factors are terribly important on the brief understanding that I have. if if any money is owed to your parents because of you having lived with them et cetera then it seems to me that that is a separate matter and has nothing to do with your ownership of the property. You say that you have received a letter from solicitors claiming first of all that there is a constructive trust or that you might be subject to a proprietary estoppel. In terms of the estoppel, that doctrine is only available in very particular circumstances and could not be used to attack you in any event. Estoppel, whether it is proprietary or promissory can only be used as a defence. So the question of estoppel in this situation is completely irrelevant, in my view, although I don't see any basis for one in any event. So what remains is the possibility of a constructive trust. It seems to me to be highly unlikely that there is such a trust and I think that the first question needs to be asked is on what basis they consider that there is a constructive trust. Secondly, of course, even if there was a constructive trust, on the basis of what you have told us, it wouldn't only be your mother who was the beneficiary, it would also be your uncle. Furthermore, if you were a constructive trustee then at the very least you would be entitled to recover all of the expenses that you had laid out over 30 years – including the cost of the property plus interest – less any financial benefit that you had accrued from renting it out and so forth. I'm not sure how good this analysis is. This is well out of my experience – but I would suggest that you consider it and see whether any of it rings true. I would also start making a very detailed account of all the money which you have spent over the years on the property and also a detailed account of all the benefits you have accrued from it. I would supply this to their solicitor that if you end up having to instruct your own lawyer then I'm sure that you may be asked for this if there is any suspicion that a constructive trust may exist. Frankly it sounds like a load of rubbish to me that we will be very interested if you will keep us up to date. So there you have it. No particular answers. Just a few unsupported and unqualified opinions    
    • Hello and welcome to CAG.   I agree with dx, hiring a lawyer is unlikely to help as most of them don't understand fare matters, so you end up paying for their learning curve.   Your idea about involving your GP is a good one, it sounds as if you need their input with how you're feeling. And if they would write a supporting letter that could help too. Hopefully your medical information will be through in time.   HB

Hi Detemind

 

If you start by having a read through this which contains guidance and templates on your first moves. If you then start a thread detailing which financial bandits your up against, how much the loan was for, interests rates etc then you get answers to any questions/problems that arise :roll:

Oh, i also have the original contract i signed with HFC at the time detailing all the information including the true cost of the loan + PPI. The debt is not quite paid off just yet (nearly there) but is being managed by a third party. I'm down to the last 1500 but i strongly believe that this is just the PPI that's left.

As i have all the details, do i need to send an SAR or do i just kindly asked for the money to be returned

Hello Zzed,

 

Please start your own personal thread in the ppi forum, Your posts will not be seen as this is the successful claims thread.

 

 

Its up to you whether you send for the SAR or just work with the figures that you have. Is the ppi still running? If it has been cancelled they would have rebated the ppi and interest off the loan balance, wtherefore reducing the balance of the loan and affecting the amount that you reclaim back.

 

If you send the SAR, you may get more information regarding the breakdown of the ppi, applied interest and the rebates.

 

With watch out for your new thread

£7k PPI reclaimed on a Barclays loan.

 

Barclays initially refused a refund on the grounds that the claimant was employed as a 'home maker'. Of course this was utterly ridiculous and they repaid after the LBA.

Excellent news:D

 

A Home maker, did the claimant build houses, nearly choking on my tea, laughing at that comment barclays made. They were desperate weren't they.

I would reccomend anyone reading this thread to follow the link to the petition set up to raise awareness of the overpriced selling on PPi, with loan agreements.

 

Petition to: Prohibit loan companies from selling payment protection insurance with credit agreements.

 

spread the word, too many perople are being steered towards taking overproced ppi, in spite of the FSA's efforts to regulate the industry

Heathermc v Lloyds ****WON****

I was claiming on behalf of my husband who has a loan with Lloyds. He was told he would not get the loan without taking the insurance even though he didn't need it. He has been paying it for a year now and the refund of £628 will be in his account by Wednesday. They didn't even put up a fight.

Sent standard letter to Egg for PPI insurance claim in Oct. The loan taken out Jan 05 £5000 over 48 months loan protection £959.80. The letter says We have attempted to retrieve the call when you were offered PPI , unfortunately the tape has been corrupted and we have been unable to listen to this. Therefore a business decision has been taken to refund the PPI with interest as a gesture of goodwill without admission of liability. Please find enclosed a cheque for £324.75 this being the remaining premium of £292.83 plus interest of £31.92. Sent 2nd letter saying i would accept the cheque as part settlement but unless they could prove to me that it wasnt missold i wanted a full refund plus interest, received a letter yesterday offering me the full amount of the policy plus interest.

Been claiming back from Blackhorse. 3 accounts, the first one I tried to cancel after 3 months and they said bogoff, I then sent the a copy of the cancellation request and their bogoff letter (which they kindly included in my SAR) and got a call yesterday saying they will refund everything from the date of my letter (Jan 2000) to settlement in 2004 at Contractual interest rate and then 8% from then on. I have now calculated the refund (and faxed my figures to them), it is for well over £5000 and worked it out using the CI through the loan and then CI through the loan I took with them to settle the first loan and then CI through the loan I took with them to settle the second loan and then CI through the loan I took with them to settle the third loan and then 8% for the remainder (all these CI added £800 to the total.

 

My advice is to do the SAR and check everything very carefully, then just keep at them.

 

I am off to raise the N1 for the other 2 accounts.

 

good Luck

 

I am still going ahead with the other 2 accounts as Mrs DM is self employed and they would never have paid out.

I love these happy endings, I would love to be a fly on the wall at some high level bank meetings where they are trying to get to grips with all these claims and they will also be trying to predict what is the next area the big bad consumer will find to get them with.

 

well done you and your friend, hope they buy you a nice bottle of Champers.

Well NatWest have settled. After sending an LBA they paid out the full PPI amount and the intrest applied to the PPI but not the statutory 8%. I probably should have pursued it, but I just was happy with £7000 for the cost of a few stamps! Of course they didn't admit any wrongdoing and it was only a gesture of goodwill!!

 

Thanks to everybody who helped me out, especially hellhasnofury. :-)

Egg have almost fully coughed up my PPI claim .... just a few quid shy of 1k ... have paid £889 ... but I will go after the rest, which includes 8% (of which the court will award) added on.

 

Bottom line (imho) do not let this go .... THESE FUNDS ARE YOURS!
