    • 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.

I have today received a CCJ claim from the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre,

for a credit card that was held with HSBC a few years ago.

 

The last statement I can find for the account is 2009,

although the assignment to the DCA was later than that date.

 

Having read through the forums for some advice (which is very handy and I'm very grateful for)

I'm going to write to them tomorrow with a CPR31.14 requesting the agreement, default notice and the assignment.

 

From people's past experiences, what are the chances of them providing this information?

And do they have to provide the originals,

or just legible copies of the originals?

And am I correct in thinking the fee to enclose is £1?

 

If they do provide the info as requested, and I have no other defence,

I can't afford to pay them the amount they're requesting.

 

I could offer to pay them a token amount every month or I could borrow a lump sum

and make them an offer of a full and final settlement,

although it would be much less than they're asking for.

Either way would I still end up with a CCJ?

 

Many thanks.

it would be useful if you could type up verbatim the poc, minus pers details. When was this ac started? Have you ever sent a cca request? If not do so right away to the claimants sols.

The POC states:

 

The claimant claims the sum of XXXX.XX being monies due from the defendant to the claimant under a regulated agreement originally between the defendant and XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Bank PLC.

 

The defendant's account number was XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and was assigned to the claimant on XX/XX/XXXX, notice of this has been provided to the defendant.

 

The defendant has failed to make payments in accordance with the terms of the agreement and a default notice has been served pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

The claimant claims the sum of XXXX.XX and costs.

 

The claimant has complied, as far as is necessary, with the pre-action conduct practice direction.

 

--------------------

 

I can't remember exactly when this account was started but it was either towards the end of the 90's or early 2000's. I haven't sent a CCA request yet, as I only received this completely out of the blue yesterday, so planning on doing it tomorrow. Is there any difference between a CCA request and a CPR31.14 that I've read about on these forums?

 

Interestingly, underneath the POC, there is a printed name as a 'signature' and 'signed' as the claimant, not the claimant's solicitor, so presumably would have to send the CCA request straight to the DCA?

 

Many thanks.

If the issue date is the 17.02.2014 then your timeline is as follows:

 

Issue date 17.02.2014 + 5 days for service = 21.02.2014 + 14 days to acknowledge = 07.03.2014 + 14 days to submit defence = 21.03.2014.

 

A CCA request is a specific request for a copy of the agreement and should go to the claimant, enclose £1.00 and they have 12 working days +2 to respond. The CPR31.14 is part of the court process, costs you nothing and needs to be sent to the solicitor named on the claim form. You should send both by at the very least Recorded delivery in order to have proof of posting and receipt.

 

If this account has been assigned, who is the Claimant (new owner).

The claimaint is MKDP LLP, with both the claimaint's address and the address for sending documents both the same.

 

I will get a CCA request done and sent tomorrow by recorded delivery.

 

There are no solicitor's details on the claim form. The 'signature' at the bottom is a person's name and 'signed' as the claimant, with the 'Claimaint's solicitor' bit crossed out with XXXXXXXXXXXXX. As a result, who do I send the CPR31.14 to?

 

Many thanks.

A CCA request has been sent by recorded delivery this morning.

 

What's next? Do I need to send the CPR31.14, and as there are no solicitors details (or costs!) on the claim form, do these need to be sent to the claimaint?

 

Also, presumably I just need to send off the acknowledgement to the court, and enter my defence at a later date (within the time period)?

 

Many thanks.

  • 3 weeks later...

Further to the above I sent a CCA request to the creditor, of which I later received a reply within the timeframe advising that they were currently unable to fulfill my request, and that it may take up to 8 weeks to do so. In the meantime, they advise that they will not make any applications or seek to enter judgement during that time.

 

I also sent a CPR31.14 request a few days after the CCA, again to the creditor as no solicitor's details were on the form. The CCJ claim has been 'signed' (printed name) by an employee of the company rather than an external solicitor. However, the time for the reply from the CPR31.14 has now passed (more than 7 working days).

 

Both were sent 'Royal Mail Signed For' and were delivered the day after posting.

 

So, my question is, what is my next step? As my defense has to be submitted next week at the lastest.

 

Many thanks.

Just to let you know that I calculated your timeline wrong by one day.. your date to submit your defence will be 21st March not 22nd as advised.

Hi guys,

 

Many thanks. Am going to get it done today and submitted tomorrow anyway, always want to be a few days ahead so not to disadvantage myself in any way.

 

It is a claim for under £10,000, and a bog standard letter reply was received yesterday, dated outside of the time frame to respond by a couple of days. It does mention that it may take up to 8 weeks to locate the documents requested and that they confirm they will not make any applications or seek to enter judgement during this time.

 

Nowhere have they mentioned that I can have an extension in the time to submit my defence, as was written into my CPR31.14 request.

 

My main question is, am I defending myself on the basis that I have don't have any evidence presented to me that is mentioned in the POC?

 

Many thanks.

Just to check, as I want to submit my defense tonight. Do I scan and include the copies of the letters I've received back from MKDP as proof that it will take them up to 8 weeks to supply the requested documents?

 

Many thanks.

Defence was submitted via Money Claim last week. Just a waiting game now for the time being, to see if MKDP want to take it any further.

 

After MKDP wrote to tell me that locating the documents may take up to 8 weeks, and that in the meantime they advised that they will not make any applications or seek to enter judgement during that time, that they were hoping I wouldn't file a defence and they'd still get an default judgement? I'm guessing that's there secondary way of getting default judgements?

 

A quick question, as MKDP have given me a final demand on an alleged credit card debt from a different card (with a different bank than HSBC), can I write with a CCA request for this before they do file a CCJ claim? And if so, would they have to then at least produce the document before they could take it any further, such as issuing a claim from the County Court Bulk Centre in Northampton?

 

Many thanks.

Yes you can request a copy of agreement anytime irrespective of litigation.

Yes ....complying has no bearing on litigation...claims are issued by the 1000s even when they are in default.

Another thought I've just had is that when I requested the documents from MKDP, I didn't use my normal signature from fear of having it copied onto some terms and conditions. However, if I send them a copy of the Directions Questionnaire as I have to, it has a copy of my normal signature on it.

 

What's the best way round that? Could I add a watermark into the signature box? Obviously I would only do that on the claimant's copy, not on the original that I've already sent o the court.

 

Many thanks.

I have received and completed the Directions questionnaire and the Mediation Service forms. It mentions about serving copies on all other parties.Copy of your DQ

 

Do I just include a copy of the Mediation form to the claimant or is that just returned to the court?

Just the court

This has now been allocated to the small claims track with a court date a few months away.

 

I have to file copies of documents I intend to reply on, both to the court and the claimant by the end of this month.

 

No evidence has been provided by the claimant as to proof of the debt, despite responding over 4 months ago to both my s.77/78 and CPR 31.14 requests and assuring me that they would liaise with the original creditor and issue the documents upon receipt, which may take up to 8 weeks. Obviously the 8 weeks is well overdue and no proof has been forthcoming, so the only document I can reply on is my defence which was submitted to the court and the claimaint some time ago.

 

Do I have to send another copy of the defence to the court and the claimant by the end of this month, or is there no need?

 

Also, I agreed to mediation and was contacted by the mediation service at the end of May and agreed that I could pretty much do any of the appointment dates/times they suggested. They advised that they would contact the claimant to see which appointment would be best for them and come back to me to confirm. I never heard any more, so can only presume that the claimant couldn't/wouldn't mediate. Would this go against them in any way? I'm thinking not, as I know mediation is purely a suggestive route, but thought I'd ask anyway.

 

Many thanks.
