    • They will be at my friends house, I put all her paperwork in a file for her to keep safe.  They were sent direct to her in January 2023, just after the case was struck out looking at my past posts.  Guess the website went down last night? 
    • Good afternoon Stu. Many thanks for taking a look at my defence pdf and giving it the ok.   On the claim form Question 3 they ticked yes   'are you the claimant asking for an order that the defendant pay the cost of the claim?' . So it looks i can only hope the judge sympathises with my appalling treatment by the landlord and their agent.   As i previously said i was so desperate to find a place due to my previous eviction 7 months ago, i took something that i was not entirely happy with. If you look at the pics on my attached pdf, you can see masses of weeds at the front, side and rear garden, the back grass needs professional equipment to cut it, countless dead insects on many places including the kitchen window, same with the disgusting cobwebs. Regarding the garden The girl told me she would talk to the landlord but nothing was ever done, i have not touched the garden and its still in the same mess except there is lots of dead grass. I thought all agencies would get a cleaner in before a new tenant moves in but it seems the landlord was too tight to get this done. I was left with no option but me and my daughter to clean this up. Stu do you think its worth making the judge aware aware of the mess i faced when i moved into this house? pics of poor condition.pdf
    • This already does count against you on black box policies so I can't imagine it being any different if Tesla really was reporting to insurers.

    • Hi Lookinforinfo Thank you for your words of encouragement re the mortgage. But sadly we have no pension to fall back on, we have always been self employed and never in the position to put extra money away into pension. But we are dealing with that. We are not in arrears but trapped by a dormant lender! Anyway yes there were 2 seperate NTK, date of infringement on one was 23/4/21 for my parents and the other was 28/4/21 to my husbandm (this is the one that was discontiunued). They were both issued on 26/5/21, well after the 14 days. Please see my parents NTK questionnaire below, I have uploaded this and pictures previously on this post. But if you look at the detail, this is why I say they are more or less identical in every way. Apart from I think my parents were in there for a minute less than my husbands car.  They entered at 16.58 and exited and 17.15. I am waiting to see my parents this evening to get the court notice to allocation for her one in August 2024. Ill upload that as soon as I can Many thanks   1 Date of the infringement 23/4/21 2 Date on the NTK 26/5/2021  3 Date received 1/6/2021 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] NO - I cant see it anywhere 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? yes  2 x pictures, 1 entering and 1 exiting  6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] no 7 Who is the parking company? Parking Eye 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Kenwood House, Tunbridge Wells For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. BPA

    • 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.

Hi Caggers

 

had a look around about Oakam and didn't really find much.

 

Posting this on behalf of the in laws,

 

they had a loan with these people,

being OAPs and rising costs they couldn't afford the repayments of about £67 a week (yes I know).

 

I did them a letter back in June with a repayment offer but this just increased the amount of phone calls they got.

 

Then out of the blue after 5 months they got a Default Notice letter.

 

Now from personal experience it doesn't look like a default notice

and they refer to another letter that was previously sent to the in laws that was never received.

 

This letter I'm taking for granted would have had the Loan Amount, Default Amount and you have 28 days from this letter to sort out before we issue a DN.

 

Now should I ignore the DN and get a SAR into Oakam for them or challenge the DN so they can reissue it correctly.

 

The letter also said 14 days and its passed to the Debt Collectors,

not that I'm bothered and I've told my in laws not to worry if this happens either.

 

I'd just like to know the next best step as reading one of the posts on here,

I think my mother in law would have a fatal heart attack if she got a letter via the post asking for 159 grand.

 

Any help as always is much appreciated. PM

dx/renegade

 

its started sometime in 2008,

 

I'd ask the in laws but I've paid for them to go away for a week.

 

It is definitely a loan as they had to visit the loan place each week to pay the installment in cash.

 

They had topped it up a couple of times since 2008 but not for at least a year.

 

I have the DN letter they've sent

compared to some I've had it doesn't look pukka,

but then again some of the ones I've had weren't pukka either.

 

I'm tempted to DSAR them and start the normal process and put it in dispute.

 

If you would like me to post the DN letter let me know. Ta PM

First bit of advice, stop dealing with them on your doorstep. Contrary to what people may think, these silly people dont have any rights at all. You can just as easily pay the head office the money through online banking.

 

You also mention a default notice. Could you post this up? Does the amount contain any late charges?

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf if

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

Hi Caggers

apologises for the delay in posting,

 

 

getting info off the in laws can be a bit of a pain.

 

 

Posted is the DN page 1 & 2,

the follow up letter dated the 29 Nov 13 (yes we aren't even there yet) and

a copy of the template letter I sent for them in Jun 13 which resulted in multiple phone calls everyday but no letters.

 

 

I can see that there is a bit of a jump in the amount owed from the default notice to what the DCA will be asking for.

 

 

If you need any more information please ask as I'll get on the phone to the in laws and find it out:

notice of sums in arrear

or

notice of default sums

 

 

just a pretty letter that tells you they are going to levy unlawful fees.

 

 

certainly NOT a DN or a pre cursor to one.

in all effect that letter is nothing

and its a mixture of 2 other letters that can be sent

 

 

they don't detail the 'default sum' they are going to charge either.

 

 

how much did they borrow and how many times has it been rolled over?

 

 

I bet they've paid this loan 1000's times over

I was under the impression from my own past experiences that a DN was to be made within 3 to 6 months of non payment but backdated to the original time of non payment. As anything over this period was deemed detriment to the consumer or has it changed in the past few years?
