    • 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,

Capquest purchased a debt I had with egg,it was a loan from 2001.I asked Capquest for the CCA and they sent it to me although it was late.I was then advised on this forum to send a SAR to egg and to write to Capquest to say that I was in dispute with Egg and therefore to put a hold on the account until it was sorted with Egg. I sent the letter to Capquest by recorded delivery last week and today got this letter in the post from them(please see attached)

 

They have made no acknowledgment of the letter I sent saying I was in dispute with Egg.

 

Some advice would be great,is it normal for them to send these letters?

 

Thanks in advance.

:)

well, call me cynical, but I think you've been 'specially selected' for this generous offer because they have no enforceable agreement, and they know you're on to them!

 

File under 'ignore' for the moment. the main issue is your CCA. do you know if it is valid?

Can you post it up here for checking?

I've seen this kind of letter before - not sure if here or maybe Debt Questions.

I have seen it before. Sure of it. If you agree then they have a brand new credit agreement from you. And 0870 is a premium rate number, not 'national call rate'?

Someone here will know better than me! :confused::)

The agreement as is, is "improperly executed". It contains no indication of charges payable on default (which is a term that must be in the agreement, although not a prescribed term - not in the terms and conditions).

 

As oneofakind says - S78 also mentions a that you should get a copy of any other document referred to in the agreement. Well, they haven't provided a copy but have mentioned the "terms" in the agreement.

Well, all the prescribed terms seem to be there, but did they send you the T&C, which forms part of the document? It's incomplete if they didn't.

 

sosumi, I've seen that letter before, too. Think it was on here somewhere a month or two ago.

 

By the way, what's happening with your claim now? I assume you've sar'd Egg to claim for charges, is that right? how much do you expect you'll be able to claim back?

I have not sent the S.A.R to egg yet,I was going to before the end of this week. I don't know what I would get back.I don't really know what I am doing!:-? Someone on here said I should do it as Capquest want just short of 3.5k from me. The original loan was for 5k and I paid it for 3 years.I only stopped paying it when I got sick and could not work.It seems very high the ammount they want,so I was told it would be a good idea to send a S.A.R. to egg.

 

No Capquest did not send the terms and conditions with the CCA.What should I do about that? I did not realize that it was incomplete without the T&C's.

I am very confused!

I posted about a very similar letter I recieved a few months ago. I have not CCA'd them though, it simply arrived presumably because I had ignored the preceeding 20-25 letters that they and their friends HL Legal sent me :wink:

Thanks to everyone so far!

 

Could someone tell me what I should do though about the fact that they have not sent the T&C's with the CCA

 

Also should they have sent me all the blurb about the PPI that I had and turned out to be bloody useless?

Sorry to be a pain,but what should I have recieved from capquest when I asked for the CCA? Should there have been anything other than the 2 bits of paper,which I have uploaded on this thread,ie:t&c's or a breakdown of the debt/charges?

I recently send Northern Rock a CCA request and I assumed they had complied, as they sent copy of the agreement etc and a seperate photocopied and folded 2 sheets with the terms and conditions on.

 

A few weeks later they sent me a letter offering me a 30% discount on what they claimed I owed them.

 

Does this mean they know the agreement is in some way uninforceable? If so how do I find out what is wrong with it and why, then what do I write and say to them?

DCAs do not offer discounts out of the kindness of their hearts. These are the people who threatened you with courts, home visits and baliffs. I think we all know why they are backpedalling

I dug out my Northern Rock agreement that they sent me in reply to my CCA reuest. It looks like the terms and conditions are a seperate leaflet/ document and not part of the actual agreement.

Would this explain why they're offering me a 30% discount.

Also this was 6 weeks ago and I've not heard a peep out of them

since before christmas.

Looks like you could be right about them knowing the agreement is unenforcable Will scan everything when I get a chance and post them on here for an expert opinion.

Send them a cheque for £5,000 then they will match it with another £1,500 request payment then when they don't comply put a DCA on to them....alternatively 'you agree to pay an amount of your choosing by direct debit or another method that may suit you' ....why don't you offer them 1p per month....!!! it seems they don't have a properly executed agreement anyway.....

If they can't produce a proper agreement, then I won't be offering anything at all lol.

Managed to get all the debts my girlfriends ex left her with made unenforceable over the last few months, so now having a go at sorting out my financial mess too.

 

I have no morals when it comes to using the cca request to avoid paying them. After all, if it was the other way around, they would be more than happy to screw me for every penny they could. ;)

Hi,

Capquest purchased a debt I had with egg,it was a loan from 2001.I asked Capquest for the CCA and they sent it to me although it was late.I was then advised on this forum to send a S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) to egg and to write to Capquest to say that I was in dispute with Egg and therefore to put a hold on the account until it was sorted with Egg. I sent the letter to Capquest by recorded delivery last week and today got this letter in the post from them(please see attached)

 

They have made no acknowledgment of the letter I sent saying I was in dispute with Egg.

 

Some advice would be great,is it normal for them to send these letters?

 

Thanks in advance.

:)

 

Hi

 

Firstly Crapquest are not nice people, in fact, anyone who profits from someone else's misery ar ejust snakes. Just my opinion.

 

However, You do not have to correspond with them. You just tell them that you have been advised that third parties have no legal standing and you will not deal with them, only the bank concerned. Do not keep answering letters of no consequence.

Secondly, under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, they are not allowed to pursue or enforce an alleged debt while it is in dispute. Egg and themselves are vicariously liable for their actions in this case. If you have written, recorded and they have signed, they have received your dispute letter and you are in dispute. Stand firm on this, they will only use scare tactics.

should they ignore you, and they do, sure you will find a template here to tell them to bog off.

 

Here is one i've used and it usually stops them in their tracks:

 

DCA Address

 

 

Dear Sir

Thank you for your recent correspondence.

 

I have been advised that third parties have no legal standing in this matter and therefore I will not deal with third parties, I will only deal with the bank concerned.

 

Furthermore, I do not give you permission to interfere with my commercial affairs and so must decline any further communication.

 

WITHOUT PREJUDICE,

 

 

Your name (small case and don't sign)

 

 

 

If not then use this and this tends to do the trick :

 

Firstly, I have written to xxxxxxxx with regard to the above account and am awaiting reply.

 

Secondly, may I remind you that I informed you in my last letters dated xxxxxx, I have been advised that third parties have no legal standing in this matter and therefore I will not deal with third parties, I will only deal with the bank concerned.

 

I DID NOT and DO NOT give you permission to deal with my commercial affairs and so will decline any further communication.

 

I should also warn you that any further contact including, but not limited to, letters, phone calls, or personal visits from you or any third parties will be treated as harassment and extortion and will be dealt with accordingly.

 

 

 

DO NOT CONTACT ME AGAIN

 

Yours faithfully

 

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

 

Your name

 

 

Hope this helps

also should I add, never make any repayment plan with a DCA. Your dispute is with Egg and they must supply the 3 documents that make the contract enforceable. Egg cannot pass on your details to a third party without your consent. It may say they can on your agreement with them but as this agreement is not a valid contract it is null and void!

 

namely

 

Validation of the Debt (i.e the actual accounting)

Verification of their claim against you (sworn affidavit or even a signed invoice)

a copy of the contract binding both parties

 

Egg must supply these or the debt cannot be proved. Remember, you, as a natural person are different to the 'NAME' that appears in block capitals on your credit card (what you 'lawfully owe' Vs what you 'LEGALLY OWE' - fiction vs persons)

 

can be confusing but if you need any further clarification, let me know.

 

Best to do some research - Credit Consumer Act 1974, Credit Consumer (agreements) Regulations 1983 are 2 of the most important.

 

Terms you need to research - unjust enrichment

misrepresentation

lack of disclosure
