What happens if Addleshaw booth won't repsond to my SARN?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

Having Sarn'd both the Halifax and Addleshaw Booth, the halifax have acknowledged my request and have sent a letter saying they will send info requested within the 40 days, however Addleshaws are being difficult 1/ When i requested a sarn for both of us (husband & I) they took two weeks to write back asking who we wanted the info on myself OR my husband !!!!!! 2/ Then sent another letter asking if I was aware that I had already Sarn'd the Halifax !!!!!

Are they just wasting my time or can I actually do something about this. In my last letter to them, I did point out that I was sarning them as I wanted to be prepared for my court appearance. (was this a good move ????)

They will send you these confirmations, and the IC have decided that the 40 days starts when you have responded. Nothing you can do about it.

Most solicitors are not really responding to SARN's, they end up claiming legal privilege. There are a couple of people in the middle of assessments to the IC about this.

I can only suggest that you discuss your concerns about compliance on the SARN with the IC on 01625-545700. They are helpful but busy. But, they are the main source of consumer advice on the DPA.

Good Luck.

We done the same with addleshaw and booth. We got the info right on the 40 day limit. They actually sent our cheque back and sent all their info the Halifax so that the Halifax responded to our SArn. Not complaining - it saved us 10!
