    • Yes, The Motor Ombudsman. To be honest, I don't know a huge amount about how exactly they operate. It was just the route I was recommended. I've been in touch with one of their board of directors to get more answers about my case, and it was exactly what I'd feared, so am trying to investigate as much as possible myself to find out exactly who can be held financially accountable to either provide them with those details and/or know who to take to court.   Whole story is quite long, but essentially I purchased the vehicle back in January 2018. Within a week faults became apparent - faults that they knew about but said it was just a 'dash light malfunction' and it would be fixed before they handed it over.   Took it back to them to fix once I realised I couldn't drive it in that condition. They had it for a week or two despite calling me a couple times to say it was ready to pick up. Finally got it back and had the same gearbox issues but even worse. Took the car to another garage who estimated damages to be £2500+, so took the car back and requested refund. That kicked off the whole process and of course they denied refund saying I should go through their 'warranty program', which wouldn't cover it all anyways.    I then took it to TMO, who then decided I needed to get another opinion so we went straight to a VW specialist as the car was VW - they estimated min £3000. Resubmitted that to TMO and it's been ongoing.    Received a final decision on 01 Feb 2019 in my favour granting full refund, but I have had no contact or update since then, despite attempting to call and email numerous times.   I've brought my case to the attention of two MPs, however imagine they are extremely busy at the moment given the current climate.   I have then called Citizen's Advice to find out what further steps I can take, and they've recommended small claims court.   I wanted to get all the information from TMO first before I consider/start going down this route so I've reached out via LinkedIn to some of the board of directors for TMO which has been successful and I've actually received an update, although it's what I feared and expected. That said, he assured me they would be meeting about it today to investigate further who can be held accountable/whether they're still trading, etc. I can't trust a speedy investigation given it's been 28 months already so I'm now trying to look into it to find more information.   I gather the parent and registered company is under Crown Motors Direct Limited, which might be owned by Ahmed Al-Waheeb and/or Nadjeem Kheloufi. They do still look to be actively trading locally under Chobham Central Garage. I've been in touch enquiring about a car and asked for Nadjeem, who they said I must mean 'Nathan'.    On companycheck it reckons the below, this is the company linked to director Ahmed Al-Waheeb. Not sure how reliable that information is.   Another interesting link is https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09967993/filing-history - confirmation statement was made on 31 Jan 2020, and 17 Jan director Ahmed changed his DOB and address.
    • Getting to the point of my post, I took an Egg loan for £4000 in February 2001, paid it for 7 months before becoming unemployed and defaulting on the loan. Much happened at this time and I ended up moving a lot as well as being technically homeless.   I finally got settled and entered into an IVA with Eversheds for £5.00 per month in June 2005 and have since been making payments.   My issue is that having paid over £2,900 the balance is still in the region of £3,147.86!   I DSAR'd Egg back in 2011 and have the information in the attached PDF. According, to their own information they defaulted me 29/04/02 when the balance was £3,697.39 and marked non-acrr. The balance remained the same, or at least no changes shown until 20/11/02 when a £60 "Waive Fee" and £226.04 "Bad Debt Charge Off" fee increasing the balance to £3,983.43   Next change is when the loan account is sold to Arrow and the balance becomes £4,859.43!   Opinions and advice very welcome!   PDF Doc via Google Drive https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b39Rq3YZm7CdXDl8p_tITqf5aR5fckVp/view?usp=sharing        
    • agreed, you need a wills and probate experienced lawyer, don't try and do it using a self serve will kit, they're not much use at all.
    • When you say TMO, I suppose that you are referring to The Motoring Ombudsman. I don't know very much about them and I don't know whether their decisions can be enforced directly in the County Court. I will have a look. Meanwhile, please can you tell us the whole story of what has happened and the value of this problem. Even with small claims – you can win but you can still have difficulty enforcing the judgement and that could well be the case here. Do they have a premises? Do they have vehicles there? I'm asking this question is because I'm trying to find out if they have assets against which a judgement could be enforced – and I mean assets which wouldn't simply disappear

any response to my letter in post 65

 

times up

 

Nope. Well, they sent me a letter saying I had to send them £1 for the CCA request and £10 for the SAR. I wrote back and pointed out they'd rec'd these fees ages ago and had even deducted £1 from my account (!).

 

The agreement they previously sent me looks kosher - but there was lots of to-ing and fro-ing about it at the time it was originally issued (because I didn't want PPI, which they had added to the agreement, and they had to reissue the agreement) and I believe Welcome sent me the money weeks BEFORE the date on the signatures (i.e., no cooling off period). Also, the DN doesn't have a precise date by which remedy could've taken place. Additionally, there's also that unwitnessed legal charge.....

 

Anyway, I'm primed to be programmed.....should I do anything or sit tight?

 

Post, thanks so much! MX

IN THE XXXXXXXX COUNTY COURT

IN A PROPOSED ACTION

 

BETWEEN:

 

 

[ ]

Claimant

and

[ ]

Defendant

 

WITNESS STATEMENT OF XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

 

I, [NAME] of [home address of individual] make this statement in support of my application for an order for pre-action disclosure against the Defendant and will state as follows:

 

 

  • The facts and matters referred to in this witness statement are within my own knowledge, except where I have indicated otherwise. Where the facts are within my knowledge, they are true. Where they are not within my own knowledge, they are true to the best of my information and belief. I have stated the source of my information or belief.
  • There is now produced and shown to me a bundle of documents marked “ABC1”. The exhibit “ABC1” contains copies of correspondance between the claimant and defendant and identifies the documents in respect of which I seek disclosure in this Application
  • on xxxxx i entered into an agreement with the Defendant. the agreement was for a loan of £000000 ./ Credit card . the agreement number is 00000000000 and the loan / credit card is secured upon.../ is unsecured

 

The claim against the defendant

 

 

  • I have reasonable rounds for a cause of action against the defendant. The grounds are as follows
     
    a) I believe that the agreement is improperly executed and not compliant with the requirements of section 61(1)(a) Consumer Credit Act 1974 and therefore the claimant would be entitled to seek a declaration from the court pursuant to section 142(1) Consumer Credit Act 1974
     
    b) The loan / Credit card has payment protection insurance which I did not request, disclosure of the agreement will show this as such a policy will be incorporated within the agreement and should be clearly particularised within the agreement as required by section 18 Consumer Credit Act 1974
     
    c) the Defendant has been levying charges which were not set out within the original agreement and therefore are not permitted by the contract
     
    d) .................... ( add any other relevant information)
     
     
    e).......................

 

Previous requests

 

 

 

  • Previous requests for these documents have been made on the ........... and the ............. and in this regard I refer to exhibit “ABC1”. The Defendant has failed to respond to the requests for the documents and the only way that the Claimant can now make any progress with the claim is by making this application to the court. Unless the Defendant discloses the requested documents the Claimant cannot prepare accurate pleadings. This may lead to delay or additional expense if proceedings are issued and later need to be amended once standard disclosure is given.

 

Part 31.16 CPR 1998- pre-action discovery

 

 

 

 

  • This application complies with Part 31.16 of the CPR 1998 because:

a)It is supported by evidence in the form of this statement and the exhibits attached hereto

 

b)The Claimant and the Defendant are likely to be parties to subsequent proceedings

 

c)If proceedings are started the Defendant duty by way of standard disclosure as set out in Part 31.6 CPR 1998 would extend to the requested documents. Care has been taken to identify specific documents and to explain to the Defendant which issues that particular document relates to.

 

d)It will allow anticipated proceedings to be fairly disposed of because a cards on the table approach will be taken by each party. Currently the Defendants have failed to do this and have ignored the Claimants requests to do so.

 

e)It will assist the dispute to be resolved without proceedings being necessary because once disclosure is given each party can see the strengths of their respective cases and informed negotiations may then be undertaken with the aim being to agree settlement without the need for proceedings to be issued. The Claimant does intend to put forward settlement proposals in correspondence upon disclosure of the requested documents, which may lead to the claim being settled with having to use valuable court resources.

 

f)It will save costs because full proceedings may not be necessary. The Claimant will not need to continue to write unnecessary letters reminding the Defendant to disclose documents. Both parties can deal with the claim more quickly and economically.

 

 

Part 31.6 CPR 1998- standard disclosure

  • Standard disclosure requires a party to disclose only-
    a)The documents on which he relies
    b)The documents which
    i)Adversely affect his own case
    ii)Adversely affect another party’s case
     
    iii)Support another party’s case; and
    c)The documents which he is required to disclose by a relevant practice direction.
  • there is no relevant practice direction here,the claimant is seeking disclosure of documents as referred to within para 10 (a)&(b)as set out above in this statement
     
    Part 1 CPR 1998 – the over ridding objective
  • The application has been made with the overriding objective in mind. The Claimant has at all times tried to ensure that the overriding objective has been complied with. Due to the failure of the Defendant to give voluntary disclosure or any good reason for failing to give such disclosure this application has become necessary. The application fulfils the requirements of the overriding objective by using as little of the courts time as possible to put the parties on an equal footing in relation to the evidence that they hold and to avoid proceedings being issued unnecessarily

 

 

 

Case Law

 

 

 

  • The documents requested go directly to heart of the claimant’s case. In accordance with the guidance given by Lord Justice Rix in Black and others v Sumitomo and others [2001] EWCA Civ 1819 (and in particular para. 72 of his judgment) care has been taken to ensure that the disclosure request is narrow and that the documents requested are determinative of the dispute between the parties. At paragraph 88 of his judgement Rix LJ states that when determining whether to grant an application for pre-action discovery the court will consider “the nature of the injury or loss complained of; the clarity and identification of the issues raised by the complaint; the nature of the documents requested; the relevance of any protocol or pre-action inquiries; and the opportunity which the complainant has to make his case without pre-action disclosure”. These points have been repeatedly addressed through out the claimants attempts to obtain the documents which are at the heart of this application

 

 

  • SES Contracting Limited and others v UK Coal Plc and others [2007] EWCA Civ 791 addressed the issue of costs in pre-action discovery applications. Lord Justice Moore-Bick decided on that occasion that both paties should bear their own costs of the application. However, both parties where commercial organizations. In the present application the Claimant is an individual seeking disclosure against a large financial institution. In SES Contracting there was no breach of a pre-action protocol. In the present case the pre-action protocol practice direction has been broken by the Defendant in that the Defendant has failed to comply with paragraphs xxxxxxxxxxxxxx IDENTIFY WHICH PRE ACTION PROTOCOLS HAVE BEEN BREACHED BY THE L:ENDERS NON COMPLIANCE. Paragraphs 2.1; 2.3 and 3.3 of the protocol invite the court to take such breaches into account when making orders for costs. An award of costs against the defendant is likely to discourage a failure to comply with the protocol in future thereby obviating the need for an application to the court. An award of costs will also satisfy paragraph 2.4 of the pre-action protocol in placing the Claimant in no worse a position than he would have been in had the protocol been complied with. Any other order would place the Claimant in a worse position due to the Defendants non-compliance.
  • For the reasons which I have outlined above I ask the court to grant the relief sought as detailed within the draft order

 

 

 

 

 

 

I believe that the facts stated in this witness statement are true.

The Whole Point Of This Is To Force Welcome To Release The Underwritng Sheets

 

It Shows All The Commission Payments They Made To Themself

 

Welcome Elite Brokers

 

They Will Have To Comply

 

They Will Sooner Say Lets Get Rid Of You Rather Than Release That Document

 

If They Say There Is No Underwriting Sheet

 

I Have Many Documents That Say Welcome Elite Brokers As Evidence

 

And If They Respond To The Court No Underwriting Sheets,

Post, even your typing is super confident! Okay, will really concentrate on absorbing the claims.

 

Sorry to go 'off thread' but I am panicking about another problem in the Legal Issues department. My thread is 'Big overdraft must respond to court claim issued by Incasso please help' (I know, not exactly catchy!). Hungrybear drafted my defence but I need help completing my AQ, which is due a week from tomorrow. I know ODs are a specialist area but might you know any Caggers who could advise me?

 

Sorry to hijack my own thread (is that even possible?) - hope I haven't transgressed a CAG law but I am worried!

 

Thanks,
