Good evening We would appreciate your advice please. A friend bought a second hand car from a dealer and as she drove it away, she noticed a smell of burning but initially dismissed it because it was apparent that the car had been valeted inside and out and she believed it to be the heated seats drying or the engine maybe drying off from a clean. Over the next few days, the smell remained and the lights, heated seats, rear wiper and other electrical things started to fail. She contacted the dealer who requested she fetch it back but as the issues deemed the car unfit for the road and potentially dangerous to her kids; she requested he collect it. He recovered the vehicle and later advised her that it was due to an electrical plug being 'kicked off' under the glove box and blamed my friend for this and then attempted to charge her for the recovery plus the repair. Having sort some advice; she advised him that under the Short Term Right to Reject under the Consumer Rights Act; she wanted her money back as she had lost faith in him and the vehicle but he has declined and has only offered to pay the recovery as he believes this is all her fault! To date she has advised the DVLA that the vehicle is not hers and the garage (as far as we are aware) still have the vehicle. She bit the bullet and has commenced small claims proceedings to which he is trying to go for mediation because it's free (which we don't believe it is) and she has now received a letter from his solicitor which appears to be designed to scare her. I attach a copy and would respectfully ask for your comments please. Many thanks Lambo
If a claim is started for small sum against a financial corporation and for some reason it gets allocated to the multitrack then huge cost are payable for losing.. If it gets to allocation and you pull out then you must pay costs up to that point, but how much is it likely to be for a self litigant? I know it can vary but does anyone know of a case where this happened? Corporate lawyers costs hundreds per hour so I guess it could be thousands by the time they have filed a defence and allocation hearing?
Guest posted a topic in BarclaycardHello.... I think I''m being duped and am hoping you can advise on the following please....... Back on March 26th last year I CCAd MKDP regarding an outstanding debt on my credit file... Since then they have regularly written to say that they don't have the information and are liaising with the original creditor... Today I received a letter headed "Statement in relation to the below agreement governed by the consumer credit act 1974". It lays out details of the debt under query with the addition of a transaction made on the 28/2/2014 of £1 - plus another transaction on 2/4/2014 entitled "miscellaneous charge" of £1. That £1 can only be the fee related to the CCA letter. Are they effectively trying to prove a tacit agreement and re-activate the account - if so what steps should I take next? My initial reaction was to send a letter pointing out their "mistake" but then decided to council your opinion first. I've attached their letter and my CCA letter to make things a bit clearer... - which appear to have dropped off so added in later post... Kind regards and thanks - Andy
