    • So today I received two claim forms. Interesting how tm legal are keen to rush into this as they didn't respond to my paploc response and my requests for all the information including cca agreement etc. Guess they probably lost this in the pile and think this will result in a backdoor ccj
    • OK - thank you. I understand the concept of LIP, and the need to keep my claim as simple and straightforward as possible. The legal arguments presented in what I called my skeleton statement were already in the original template I downloaded from this site. In that document I opened with "I am not proposing to set out the sequence of events." Might it be worthwhile for me to include a very brief timeline at that point, which would perhaps then allow it to become my witness statement? Or do you consider two separate documents are required? 
    • BF do you know where the instruction for skeleton has come from? Its just WX + docs. Do you think a skeleton is needed if the only issue in dispute is the legality of the exclusion terms. it seems excessive as well as wx no?   ah yes good point with LIP wx format i didnt think about the LIP judge softhand

    • 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.

Im sure that you have all heard of this scenario.

 

My friend scrapped a car sent conformation to the DVLA to say that the car was no longer in his possession as it had been scrapped.

 

My friend is a mechanic and has scrapped many cars over the years without a problem.

 

However just recently he gets a fine for a car he had scrapped, he feels that this is an oversight on behalf of the DVLA and rings them to state that no conformation had been received.

 

He tells them that its not his fault that this information had been lost and could they check again.

 

A few weeks later he gets a letter from Inter-credit consultants demanding the £80. He calls them up and states the same as he did to DVLA.

They wouldnt hear it and basically said he has to pay the fine.

 

I emailed DVLA asking them to recheck their files and how can they prove that the conformation was not sent.

Another week later he gets another debt letter from this company stating that he can pay off the fine in small payments and that he must call them to set up a payment plan.

The day after he gets another letter from them to state that they had received the email that was sent to DVLA and stated that the information sent does release him from the fine.

 

So basically DVLA sent on the email straight to the debt collectors and didnt even respond or look into this.

 

I know my friend is very good with his paper work with regards to car documents as he deals with cars and scrapping a lot if the time and this is the first time that this has ever happened.

 

Does he roll over and pay this fine or can he fight this.

 

Thanks guys.

several threads on this here.

 

its a dvla error

 

the dca has no powers.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

This sounds like a 'classic' case of DVLA losing a document (but of course never admitting it).

The sort of thing that occupies over half the threads on this subforum. The unusual thing here it being over a scrapped vehicle sooner than a transferred one.

 

What I wonder about is the "fine". For a fine there should have been a Court conviction.

 

Or is it just an in-house penalty ?

 

Either way there are (or were) routes of dealing with things.

I will be emailing both debt company and DVLA again! placing a complaint with both and for this to be investigated. Does anyone know who is best to send an email too with regards to the DVLA as filling out one of their online forms seems to be a waste of time.
