    • 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.

Hello Everyone

I just got home and recieved a county court summons, claimant robinson way ltd

I have 14 days, im not sure what to do, around 4 years ago I had an overdraft with abbey and when i fell out of work they withdrew the overdraft, they said they had sent a letter 6 weeks prior to this saying they were going to do this, but i dont ever remeber receiving it. one day i checked my bank account and all of a sudden i was 1400 dr with no overdraft. This left me in a dire financial trouble as my single parent benefit got swallowed up with it. I spoke to one of them on the phone and they said I would have to start a new bank acount somewhere else, which i felt was harsh as I had been a good customer for many years.

do I have any line of defence? could i still try to go for the bank charges? which is almost as much as what I owe?

Hi rob

 

I think the best thing to do is scan, post the document, removing all personal details inclusing reference numbers, try not to panic, it's a case of dealing with it.

 

As for the charges, it seems that you have suffered 'Hardship', the Lending Code says that the bank should treat you fairly.

Also did they put the interest rate up?

Is there any law that abbey may have broke due to them taking my benefit money and leaving me with no money to live on?

Which at the time caused severe hardship.

 

I would really like to fight abbey over the way they treated me, is it possible to make my defence around this?

Or should i go for the bank charges?

I really dont know what to do, when should I fill in the court form? I have 14 days

Or should I just roll over and give in?

There isn't a law as such. But there is a Lending code that Santander signed up too.

Have you got evidence of your Hardship, benefits etc.?

This is my defence so far. Can I submit my defence online with the courts as I dont have very long left?

 

 

My defence

 

 

I believe that abbey national PLC mismanaged my account and did not follow the code of banking standards that they were subscribed to at the time of this debt. Abbey did not help me or offer to give assistance in anyway and removed my overdraft facility at a time that I was suffering with financial hardship which caused this debt to myself.

If they had followed the code of banking standards to which they were subscribed, this debt and the severe financial hardship that I suffered as a result of there behaviour towards my account would not have happened.

Hi Robot Roo

 

Rebel as asked I pop in.I assume the claim is from Northampton CCBC and as such you have 33 days in total so don't panic yet.5 deemed served so 28 days (14 to acknowledge and a further 14 to submit a defence) assuming you are going to defend all.Claims from Northampton are done through MCOL so all can be done on line (including defence).

 

First thing is to total all unfair charges and interest and any default charges so we have a figure to play with.(assuming you have all statements) if not you will have to do a CPR 31.14 or CPR 18 request subject to how they have plead their particulars.

 

If you could type out their Particulars of Claim verbatim (less any identifiable) and a ball park fig claimed.

 

Regards

Andy

Ok the points in red are of significant importance and you need to request copies of these references via CPR

NoA (Notice of Assignment)

Demands for payments (statements / Arrears Notices / Recall Notice)

section III and IV and annex B of the PD pre-action conduct. (LBAs)

current account account number xxxxx ( copy of any Overdraft Agreement Not CCA)

Regards
