    • CCA regulated debts cannot be enforced by HCEO's at all now. however even if they COULD be. no bailiff, whatever their type, on consumer debt judgements, have ANY right to force entry ...you simple IGNORE THEM.  
    • Thank you 😊  Just wanted to prepare myself mentally incase they pull out some rabbit out of a hat with these bodyshops as they will most likely be places they've used regularly in the past and over 150miles away from where I am.
    • I see the Brexit-ish are again delaying  implementing their 'grate deal' 'protecting the UKs borders' that they pressed through with the wholehearted support of MPs like smugg - who is now one of the main moaners saying this inflation raising and business destroying 'great deal'  shouldn't be implemented. Of course 3 of the benefits of NOT implementing the Brexitish grate deal as the Brexitish negotiated are:   1. Less UK businesses will collapse 2. UK inflation NOT increased by 0.6% (hence fiddling the figures to us scraping NOT being in a Brexit generated recession) 3. The problems will be dumped in labours lap after the GE   "Analysis by specialist credit insurance firm Allianz Trade said the removal of tariffs on the goods would reduce inflation by 0.6 percentage points, and cut import costs by close to 7 billion pounds ($8.8 billion) in nominal terms."   reuters.com WWW.REUTERS.COM     https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/uk-economy-grows-by-01-february-2024-04-12/   Rees-Mogg warns post-Brexit border charges could be inflationary WWW.THELONDONECONOMIC.COM According to reports, Britain faces a £2 billion post-Brexit bill on European food imports from the end of the month.  
    • Sorry just get worried that they will make my life harder than they already have lol   Bought the car around 12th Sept 2022 for £78,000 from clinkard cars.   Performance, Prestigious and Specialist cars in Romsey, Hampshire | Clinkard Performance Cars WWW.CLINKARDCARS.CO.UK Performance, Prestigious and Specialist cars Dealers in Romsey, Hampshire Was a 2019 Range Rover with 25k miles, £20k deposit at £750pm pcp over a 4 year period.   Finance company are alphera (bmw finance) spoke to them in October 2023 about the damage my bodyshop advised me of but they told me to deal with the dealership. Paid for the repair myself as I was told the extended warranty I paid for (recommended through dealer) wouldn't cover it as it was an existing fault and not mechanical breakdown. When I got the £40k offer from the dealership they still didn't want to get involved unless I got an independent inspection done. Used Elite Forensic inspections as they seem highly rated online (more comprehensive than your average AA inspection). I just looked online for thr best inspections for customers eho hsbe alre purchased the car. Their report was super comprehensive over like 50 pages of text and photos. Comparisons to the advert photos against what the inspector saw made in clear that the damage was before I purchase it. Got the report back 10th Jan 2024 and couldn't believe that they'd picked up the level of accident the car had been in and raised an official complaint through Alphera, they couldn't come to a decision with 8 weeks so raised with FOS. Around the 7th March 2024. Small issues started within the first week of purchasing like ambient light not working on the side the car was hit and car randomly switching off completely when I'd stop at traffic lights/junctions. Dealers eventually got this sorted which I appreciate, but doesn't change the fact that they didn't check the car as well as I'd been told it had been checked and they'd sold me an accident repaired car and initially tried to say all cars have had paint due to stone chips etc. Also turns out the car had only had 1 service before I serviced the car in mid 2023 (when the service light came on the car).   So far Clinkard have had my car for nearly a month (so my wife and I hsve had yo share cars since), they've said we've taken the far to 2x garages so far to inspect it and got 1 more garage to take it to. Currently refusing to tell me what those 2 garages have said so far with the attitude of because you've gone through FOS we have to follow the correct channels and respond to the complaint through them which is quite annoying.

    • 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.

I signed a rental lease for a house with an agent of an out of town owner. Gave her the money to move in and did. Months later I get a call from the owner saying he has not received any monies from the agent and not to pay them anymore. He fired his agent, signed an amended lease, sent it to me, I signed it sent it back with a money order for rent. A week later He sent the money order back and said he was evicting me and gave a thirty day notice. When the eviction came it said I owed for the money that was paid to his agent. I was not behind at all with rent. I believe our amended agreement should still be valid and that I should not be responsible for money that his agent did not pay him. But, I only have one check stub receipt for the three months rent paid to the agent. The other two were paid in cash. One upon move in,(The agent did initial and sign the lease) the other paid into the bank account his agent had on the rental lease. I have been able to find those receipts. My question is - If he can not find his agent(agent disconnected phone) am I still able to claim that his agent who represented him is the culprit here and say I am being evicted illegally. I do not want to go through the process of moving again and I am sure he will not give me a deposit back either so I would lose all around. I wanted to get an experienced opinion on this.

I did but I can't find them. Upon moving in she signed the lease and initialed above the deposit amount if that counts I have that. The second month is deposited directly into the agents bank account which is on the lease agreement as an option. I can't find that receipt but the bank teller remembers me so she will vouch for me. The third and last one I paid by check. I have the bank statement for that one. But wouldn't that only apply if the owners agent said I did not pay. It seem I would get the benefit of the doubt if the owner can not contact his agent that signed a lease agreement with me. The owner told me his agent will not answer his calls so they had to fire them.

Yes, the Owner of the property(landlord) appointed the agent. I entered in the agreement with his agent in November 08. Paid the agent upon move in (Novembers rent), paid December rent and January09 rent. Owner called me directly at the end of Jan09 said he had not received any money from his agent collected from me. We agreed to do a new agreement to pay him directly. He sent me a signed amended lease agreement Jan 26. I told him I needed something in writing that he fired his agent. He faxed over the document on Feb 9. On Feb 13, I signed the lease and sent a money order for February rent. A week later he sent the money order back with a letter saying he was evicting me and gave a thirty day notice. When the dispossessory came it said rent owed from November 08($5000). I only owed him directly for Febuaray(I paid he sent it back) and after the thirty day notice maybe March.

I'm trying to find a case refernce or something that I can refer to in court saying that tenant is not liable for money given to an authorized agent if the agent did not give it to the owner of the property and our signed lease agreement is valid and binding.


Thanks you very much

I thought there where some 'Americanisms' in some of the words (and the $ sign) you used in your posts.


This site is primaily a self help site for those with questions based in the United Kingdom, so we are unlikley to be able to help you as the law over here is likley to be different to the laws and processes over there.


In the UK, the answer would be that the landlord would have to take legal action against the agent if they dont pass the rent money on. I suspect its the same in the USA but I couldnt be 100% sure. I am sure there are plenty of US sites out there that could help you.


Sorry and good luck.
