    • I have a section 75 I started on the same day as the MCOL. You might think it strange to do both but I have zero faith in my bank, Santander take 3 months to process a S75 and so far rejected two other claims due to a force majeure clause, something the EU and UK government have said the pandemic is not. Both these claims are now with the FOS but the ombudsman's is currently working to a 4 month delay.   I really take another case taking 7 months to conclude, it's soul destroying.
    • Have you called the credit card company and tried to initiate a charge back?
    • Hi dx, thanks for your response.   they haven't touched my credit file actually and I have all receipts and a proof from the buyer (screenshot of bank statement). They asked to see a V5C and I told them that I don't have it, this is the bone of contention. They have now closed the account but still refuse to issue a check for my balance. 
    • After seemingly purchasing groceries online via tesco.com I arrived at the click and collect point to find the cost of the goods had increased by 15%.   Price offered at checkout £150, price charged on collection of goods £172.50.   Customer service decline to refund the difference and insist what was indicated at the time of purchase was a "guide price", I maintain had this been obvious I would have made a difference transactional decision.   References to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations Act 2008 seem to be unpursuasive.   Perhaps someone else has a similar experience or knows a more effective lever?
    • Hi all, Hope someone can assist me as I feel a bit out of my depth.   Sorry for a long post in advance, it's probably best to set the scene as full as possible. We purchased 2 flights to Canada and returning to the UK from San Diego, the flights were with American Airlines (operated by BA) but importantly, booked through a travel agent budgetAir.co.uk on 9th January 2020.   BudgetAir’s first failure was to inform us that part of the flight was cancelled but after we discovered this from the airline and drew it to their attention, there were no suitable alternatives available so they agreed to refund the cost on 20th August.   EU law says they have to refund me within 7 days of a cancellation but obviously with the pandemic and they having to get the money back from the airline it’s reasonable to wait longer. The problem here is they keep telling me to be patient but American Airlines keep telling me that nobody has asked for a refund yet. Just for clarification I keep asking American Airlines as other people in a group I belong to have been waiting since February/March with no refunds.   On 26th September I sent BudgetAir a “notice before action” giving them 7 days to either refund me or for us to agree a mutually agreeable future date for a refund. On 5th October I started a MCOL which was issued the following day on 6th October. On 26th October I requested a default judgement which was issued today 18th October.   Two things concern me: 1, BudgetAir are a part of Travix International B.V in Amsterdam, BudgetAir are not listed as a Limited company in the UK, BudgetAir.co.uk is a trading name of Travix International B.V they use in the United Kingdom. This is the only UK address they provide anywhere on their documentation, this also explains a little more of the company structure: https://www.budgetair.co.uk/about I’m concerned I have used the right company name on the MCOL but it’s the only name they trade with I the UK.   2, My second concern is the address, I believe the London address may be no more than a postal address and will not give high court bailiffs any ability to recover goods. With the above thoughts, I don’t know how to proceed now I have got a judgement, assuming they don’t pay. My only option could be a 'third-party debt order' but I don’t know how to get any bank details, I paid my credit card and have no information (nor can I find online) about their banks.   Any thoughts would be gratefully received, Many thanks Anthony.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi.

Your post is a trifle confusing.

Are you saying you've owned the vehicle for three years?

The garage who are taking it in part exchange will still take the car won't they?

What is it you require help with?

It looks like 3 years ago he bought a 2 year old car so it is now 5 years old.

The thing to do here is because you are still covered by the sale of goods act, is to find the true value of your car and then attempt a part exchange with the same dealer you bought it from.

If they should say that it's a cat c, ask them how much you will lose in the trade in because of this and then claim that amount from them.

 

You don't have to complete a purchase with this dealer, you are trying to find out if he is reducing the trade-in price because it is a cat c. You can then challenge him that they didn't inform you that it was a cat c when you purchased and that you will be claiming the difference in value.

Yes I purchased car when it was just under 2yrs old and now its 5yrs old. I didnt buy car from dealer bought privately, what I cant understand that if my car is a cat c and was in a accident b4 i purchased it. why does dvla no nothing of it? after reading on many pages it seems if ur car is in a smash and said to be cat c the log book is sent bk 2 insurance b4 payout and the insurance send it to dvla the car would then require a mot and vic test, when i purchased car there was nothing 2 suggest there was any problem with car logbook as it should b only that there was no service done but it didnt require mot until 3yrs old which i had 1st 2nd and 3rd done which passed all 3 including 2 interim and 1 full service without any1 quering that my car could b a cat c, that is why im so confused and dont no where 2 turn?

Do as I said earlier and go back to the seller you bought it for and make believe you want to buy a car from him by part exchanging this one and see if he mentions that it is Cat C and then you will know that he must have or should have known this when he sold it to you and we can take it from there.

 

Look at something about the same as you have seen at the other dealer and when he gives you the partex price etc you can tell him you will talk it over with your wife and come back so you can then leave without commitment.

Suppose 1 still cant believe ive been driving round in a cat c car and knew nothing of it? then 101 questions in my head 2 why this has happend and slipped through the net actually dont know how it could. why wasnt i informed by either insurance my insurance is actually very cheap considering i only past 3yrs ago where people say if cat c your insurance is high or would find it difficult to get insurance, again had none of that, dvla dont know nothing of this, why when they should of had log book why is car bk on road without dvla knowing inspecting car? what rights if any have i got? could i lose all my money I paid 4 car (actually have no money 2 replace car growing family) when part exing car was just hoping 2 put xtra couple of hundred not thousands. going to phone a solicitor 2day 2 c where i stand, and may try part exing again at a garage. need 2 know if i need 2 tell them it is a cat c people keep saying i have no proof it is dvla saying its not, but im a honest person and being told by insurance and credit checkers that it is cat c feel if i sell car without informing buyer/garage its not cat c its not me. but then do i just lose all my money which i cant afford 2. I wont drive car, since i found out 2 days ago its sat on drive, may seem silly but have no trust in it especially that i have 3 children that i cant believe ive had in car 4 3yrs driving them here and there, ive borrowed car from family member and just hope can get this situation sorted asap. thanks 4 comments added and if anyone else has any ideas please feel free to comment with thanks

Hi.

I'm having trouble reading your posts with that texting stuff. Not all of us here are under twenty five. Perhaps if you made your posts more clear others would be more willing to help.

 

I would suggest you HPI the vehicle yourself, so that you know it's a Cat C and not a Cat D. However you will find not all Cat Cs from five years ago are noted on the V5c.

I would also suggest that by you buying the vehicle privately you have no recourse with the seller, unless when purchasing you specifically asked the vendor if the vehicle had ever been written off. There is no onus on the seller to divulge that information unless asked by the purchaser.

It would appear the vehicle was repaired to a professional standard and has given you trouble free service and was never in a dangerous condition. I would suggest you continue to use it until you find a replacement.

I am not aware that an insurance company HPIs vehicles when you apply for cover. They probably are unaware that the vehicle is a total loss. True they may have paid out on it in the past, but I would imagine that would be of no concern to them.

However, if I am reading you correctly (txt spk no good) I do feel the garage who is taking the vehicle in part ex is, to put it bluntly, shafting you. They will in all probability send the vehicle to auction where they will be obliged to declare the vehicle as a total loss. Depending on the make, model and condition of the vehicle it is unlikely to devalue the car in auction by two thousand pounds. A normal small hatchback on an 05 plate would probably make between five hundred to eight hundred pounds less. Sometimes it will make hardly any difference if the vehicle has been repaired well and shows no signs of previous damage.

I suggest you shop around and see what other garages are willing to offer you. You may as well be upfront and inform them it's a write off because they will HPI the vehicle before completing the transaction.

My previous car was written off by the insurance company. Believe it or not, one of the reasons they wrote it off was that the wheels had been stolen, and to shove 4 new alloy wheels on, and tyres, would have added £2000 to the total repair bill. It also had broken windows, some damage to the rear bumpers, and some damage to the brake lines underneath.

 

Nothing unrepairable, but it was cheaper for the insurer to total it as giving me the cheque got rid of me, no more courtesy car, nobody insisting that they wanted proper, expensive parts, wheels that were the same as the original, etc.

 

I am sure that car was not crushed, it could have been fixed for less than its value, and really, there was nothing seriously wrong - it will have made someone a reliable, good car, despite the insurers decision to just pay out and get rid of me. That seems to happening a lot, from what I hear the insurers work on the idea that repairs that cost over half the total value are not worth doing.

Sorry - forget my posts where I say go back to the seller to part ex, I missed the bit where it said 'private'.

 

That of course changes thing immensely, you will have not recourse to the seller and should do as GWC says and shop around to see the best deal you can get. You could, of course, sell it privately yourself to see if you can get a better price.

To be honest, if you've had three years trouble free motoring from the vehicle and there is no evidence that the vehicle has ever been unroadworthy due to it's previous damage there is hardly the basis for an argument that you have been sold a "dodgy motor".

It could be argued had you known at the point of purchase the vehicle's status you may have chosen not to buy the car, but to be truthful you should always ask the vendor of any vehicle, private or trade, whether the vehicle has ever been subject to being an insurance total loss. And of course before handing over any money HPI the vehicle yourself.

But, it appears the car has actually done what you wanted it to do, and given you no trouble, up to now that is.

You could 'phone your local auction and explain you wish to sell the vehicle and ask them in their opinion how much they would expect it to make and the cost of them selling it. Choose a national auction with many branches around the country. They cost more, but the cars make more. Often they will do a deal on the commission but only if you ask. Small independent auctions normally produce poor results.

If the dealer offers 2000 prior to knowing about the Cat c then he will offer less with knowing, some auctions might get a reasonable return but thats up to you. The car of that age is not forced to have the cat c recorded on the log book as it would have been issued before or possible the insurance company did not notify DVLA at the time.

 

I find ebay a good place to get rid of these cars as people will buy anything just make sure that you list it as cat C according to HPI but not on the logbook and poss try as a buy it now not auction. I normally get trade or more.

Yes these insurance companies need a kick up the backside to be polite, I have contacted my union solicitor just to see where I stand, he said that I have got a case against insurance, would 1st have to use the complaints procedure through insurance for compensation upon loss of value of my car and if that doesnt work could take them to a small claims court, which to be honest could take twelve months or more and without time on my side and money looks like insurance will get away with it yet again. didnt ask solicitor if still could make claim if car is sold think I will ask that question because I hate the fact that insurance companies can do this to people and get away scot free.

Hi all, still got my car, garages offered silly prices again less than half the market value. so I am going to try sell it privately informing purchasers that the car is cat c even though by all accounts dont have to unless asked. Im an honest person and what that man has done to me by selling me a cat c car, I could not do to someone else, fingers crossed I will only lose hundreds not thousands. well its learnt me a lesson and im sure I wont fall for that one again. to anyone reading this get a good check done (experian) before ever purchasing a second hand car.

We did actually ask, reason being there was some scratches on the inside of the drivers door my partner said to him this hasnt been in a smash as it. the reply that was given that his wife opened it n a high curb and when went to close door got it caught, at time and I suppose with rose coloured glasses being my first car it was believable. my uncle going to try sell it as cat c for me at auction if doesnt sell privately, im goin to give it a week or so and see how it goes, thank you for advice.

Hi.

I agree with you, for your own peace of mind it is best to inform any purchaser of the vehicle's history. If the vehicle has been repaired correctly (which it does appear so) there is no reason why it shouldn't give anybody another few years of reliable service.

We send vehicles to auction on a weekly basis and in my experience if the car looks right the fact that it's a total loss doesn't make a great deal of difference to the price. Sometimes it makes no difference at all. So the garages that have offered you less than half the market value have been a tad cruel I would say. Mind you you may have an unrealistic vision of what the market value is.:)

The car has been a reliable little car never had a problem with it, to me it drives like a new car, my partner agrees and he has had many cars. no was actually very reasonable with my price being that the car has very low milage and is in excellent clean condition, checked what others were asking for same car and most if not all was asking same price with either high milage or even older plus I put on a full mot/service and tax. but obviously I did this last week before I found out my car was Cat c, as said was expecting few hundred upto 5 or 7 but not thousands thats the shock, told by garage they dont like taking cat cs because they have to go to auction thats why they was only offering me such a low price, over the worst now, having dads car and will just pay him back when sell mine. think at 1st the shock of finding out and the loss of money was hard to take when I had previously had so much faith in my car, but when I watched a program other night about people losing £65000+ on apartments in dubai, it makes me look silly, suppose no matter how old we get were still learning new things ha thanks for ur help

Make sure you tell the customer about

any problems or other issues with the

vehicle, for example, previous insurance

write off/accident history, 'MOT Advisory'

items, unrectified faults, discrepancies in the

service history/mileage, ex-business use

vehicle which may have had multiple users,

grey import.

I will, well tell them all I know, the insurance told me there was minimal damage just panel damage from front to back of drivers side, including drivers side door and half a bumper that was the damage which we found strange being car classes as cat c, we thought panel damage would of been classed as a cat d what we have read. I got a print out from a garage we tried to part ex with yesterday which gives 4 pages about car including cat c which states car was extensively damaged but repairable- insurance decided not to repair.

I thought that because looks like he purchased car from salvage yard, the car had 2 previous owners the 1st owner had it exactly 1yr when the car was involved in accident by all accounts what been told by insurance the people were paid out and car sent to salvage yard, now the payout was only half the value of the car at that time which I also found strange. 2 months after accident the 2nd person purchases this car which insurance think from salvage and then I purchased car 8mths later. the person I purchased car from told me that his friend had sold him the car for his wife due to his friend coming into some money and buying a better car, and reason for him selling it because his wife doesnt use it and being left to stand. what I feel is either the 1st people were given half payout and car back had work done and sold it to 2nd people, or the second people did buy from salvage and got work done and sold it to me, but then why didnt the 1st or 2nd owner ever report this to Dvla and my self. its so confusing tried getting my head around all information but could be many things, as you said if the 2nd person did buy my car from salvage do it up and sell it to me im sure its not the 1st time hes done this, but its finding out, How?:confused:

You have his name and address and hopefully his telephone number. Scour the pages of ebay and Autotrader looking for the same seller.
