    • Your not understanding the probelm.   The problem is when i write the old name of evri (which is hermés without the accent) this forum auto changes it to evri which means the email address the OP ends up using is wrong.    
    • Wow, £1,650 for 3 years warranty, their cost would be in the region of £200 per year, im being generous there and that would include breakdown cover etc. Insurance backed warranties aren't as bad as people often state. The problem is lack of understanding what is covered and customers often thinking (or being told) they 'cover everything'.   To be fair i doubt the retailer would have been aware of the water ingress beforehand. Its fairly common on used cars and on some models im surprised if they dont have a leak in the usual place. That would be why the previous owner got out of that particular car i imagine. The ingress doesnt usually cause any post repair issues, i've never had a vehicle come back with secondry problems but i'm sure it happens. If its an Aygo they dry out within a couple of days, if its a BMW with underfloor speakers and control modules thats where the fear sets in. The sales assistant made their commision that day for sure........
    • I didn't think email addresses worried about upper case or lower case or accents, but are you sure that the accent on EVRi isn't è with the accent going down from left to right, rather than up? That's how it would be in French.
    • Just an update, first expected letter had not arrived as of yet.
    • Yes but the problem is if you try to type the word hermés without the accent the site auto replaces the word to evri but for the email it is hermés europe not evri europe so the auto correct causes the email to be displayed wrong hence it bounced

    • 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, Im in a real pickle!! My ex and I got into a lot of debt. When we parted I went to a debt consolidation company and am now making regular payments to clear my balances.

My ex did not and is not paying any of his debts.

We had a joint account and a joint loan- after a year- we decided to change the type of loan we had- the new loan agreement was only signed and by and addressed to my husband, there was no mention of my name on the loan.

Now I am getting several phonecalls a week saying that I am also liable for the loan as it was a joint account??!!

 

Im 4 weeks away from having a baby and it's causing me so much stress!!

HSBC have been useless and can provide me with no answers- I just don't know what to do!!??

Am I really liable to pay the debt??

Any advice would be great as im desperate to know where I stand with this.

many thanks

The loan agreement should detail the parties to the agreement, if your name is not on there and you did not sign it or go gaurantor then I don't see how they can chase you for the debt.

 

In fact, if they speak to you about it then they will probably be breaking the law as your partner should be protected by the Data Protection Act.

 

If you are sure you are not party to the loan, regardless of if it was used to pay of debts in your name, you should be in the clear.

 

I might be wrong of course, lets wait to see what others have to say.

 

In the meantime, try not to worry - it doesn't help matters and it is not good for you!

 

Good luck.

Particularly note the highlighted blue bit.

 

From: Joint and Several Liability | Payplan

 

If you have taken out a credit agreement, such as a loan or bank account in joint names (with another person) then you are both liable for the full amount of any debt.

 

NB. Credit cards are not taken in joint names, if you have two cards, then only one cardholder is considered the account holder. They will be responsible for full repayment for the debt, regardless of which card was used.

 

This means that if you have a joint loan with a spouse or partner and one of you fails to repay the debt (this often happens following divorce or separation) then the lender could still ask you for payment of the full amount (not just half).

 

The lender cannot recover the money twice but can pursue both of you, or just one of you, for all amounts still outstanding until they have obtained full payment.

 

Joint and several liability can also apply to rent arrears on joint tenancies, arrears on joint mortgages, Council Tax payments and water charges on properties that have been jointly occupied.

 

I did not sign any agreement what can I do?

 

For an agreement to be joint and several then it must be signed by all parties (except for Council Tax). If a lender says you are jointly liable for a debt and you believe this is not the case, it may be worth asking for a copy of the original agreement. If you have not signed it then you are not liable.

Hi Car2,

 

Even if the account was joint, if it was closed by way of being paid off by a loan then the loan is the new credit. If you were not named and did not sign the loan agreement then it is nothing to do with you. Tell them to put anything in writting and to stop calling you or you will complain to the FOS and Trading Standards. If they do write post the letter up here and we will go through it for you.

 

You mentioned HSBC, please tell me this was not a managed loan with HSBC...

 

Good luck,

 

Penfold
