    • Do not under any circumstances plead guilty until we know what we are dealing with. It's a sure way to 9 points. The tried and tested way to handle this is to plead not guilty to both charges and offer to plead guilty to speeding provided the "Fail to give information" charge is dropped. But I am concerned about this "ticket refused" sticker. I've never heard of this before. A "ticket" is not a term used in connection with speeding offences. There seems a distinct possibility that your response was received by the police but one thing worries me: I've never heard of a sticker being placed on a response and it being returned "Return to Sender". t's just not what ticket offices do. If you could post a picture of this document and the sticker it might help.  If you can show the response was received you may have a defence to the "Fail to Provide" charge (provided you completed your response properly). If the police are saying you did not respond they cannot succeed with a speeding charge (as they have no evidence you were driving). But if you did not respond, who put the sticker on the document and sent it back yo you?
    • lolerz, many thanks for your reply and correcting my big mistake, oh dear start again. They sent the section 48 along with the Form NO 6A, it was sitting on top of the paperwork, sorry about that. SO they have sent me a Form No 6A and i have received the court paperwork with the claim form and defence paperwork.

    • Hi, below is a draft of the letter Address: Hugo Martin Director of Legal and Company Secretary EVRi Parcelnet Ltd trading as Evri CAPITOL HOUSE, 1, CAPITOL CLOSE LEEDS LS27 0WH REQUEST OF CONTRACTS      Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing in regards to the ongoing small claims case ____. In your Defendant’s response you make reference to a pre-existing commercial agreement between yourselves and Packlink (2.7). In that, you claim to have a clause removing customers third party rights under the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. I would like to request a copy of this contract and confirmation of the date on which the exclusion of third party rights term was included in it. If you refuse to provide this then I will be henceforth referring to that refusal in the claim, including to the Judge. I also notice that you have destroyed tracking information due to "lapse of time" in line with your data protection policy (2.12). Can you share where this data protection policy is disclosed to customers? I also ask you to forward you a copy of that data protectiono policy, and again if you refuse to provide this then I will be henceforth referring to that refusal in the claim, including to the Judge. Kind regards,
    • Firstly, thank you for filling in the sticky so quickly - we wish everyone who comes here would do that! You're in the clear.  MET don't know who the driver was.  They can use Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 to transfer liability to the keeper if their bilge arrives within 14 days - they didn't send it out till 102 days after!!! So sit on your hands.  MET will come out with threat after threat but ultimately will do nothing. Have a read of other threads for this car park - we are having a tsunami of cases at the moment. Be sure to come back here though if they ever send you a Letter of Claim.

    • 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.

Check with the central court in Scotland, as to whether a claim has been made against you.

 

The letter appears to suggest that the court claim has already happened.

We could do with some help from you.

Royal Mail tried to deliver a signed for item we were at work

and it turns out it was a court summons for my husband.

 

The debt was littlewoods catalogue and was taken out in 2007

 

when I look on my husbands credit report I'm confused as the default was issued in 2009 by Lowell

but there is no account information by either them or littlewoods before this

in fact littlewoods aren't there at all.

 

I sent a letter recorded to yuill and kyle last tuesday enclosing the letter we sent to Lowell for cca

which we received no reply to and I've had no response from yuill and kyle.

 

My husband is calling the local court today to try to see what's going on.

 

Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated

 

husband called local court

 

they said there is an "outlying form" there no idea what this is??

 

But no action has been brought as yet

 

the summons will have come from yuill and kyle

and the post office returned this to them last week when it failed to be delivered.

 

I'm going to get my husband to call littlewoods tonight when he gets home

to see if he can find out anymore account information from them we know

he didn't sign an actual credit agreement through the post it was an online account application

as he can recall.

 

If anyone can let me know anything else I can do that would be great.

Hi,

 

You say you have not received any court papers, a copy of the summons will have to be served, if not by post the Sheriff Officers can hand deliver the summons either by handing it in at the door or posting it through the letter box.

 

I'm taking it this will be a small claim summons depending of the value of the outstanding debt, with any summons there will be two important dates, being the return date and calling date. Usually the return date is the day when the defender must return any document to the court whilst the calling date (always 7 days after the return date) is the date the case will call in court for a hearing.

 

If the claim is undisputed, the pursuer can ask for judgment (known as minuting for decree) by completing a pre-printed form. Judgment will be granted at the ‘calling date’.

 

Do you intend to dispute the claim ?

Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)

If in doubt, you should seek the opinion of a Qualified Professional.

Hi sorry for late reply didn't realise there had been any responses.

 

The sherriff officer has just delivered the court papers to me today.

 

We do not dispute the debt

 

but we dispute the amount it has gone from £700 to £1150 then there will still be court costs added.

 

We cannot afford to pay the debt off in one go

 

I don't know if they will accept £50 a month or not.

 

The last payment on the account was dec 2009

 

Not quite sure how to fill in the paperwork

 

the sherriff officer was very nice said my husband should visit citizens advice and also this website.

 

I had no reply to any of my letters to yuill and kyle or lowell which were sent 2 weeks ago.

 

Not sure how to proceed ???

Hi I sent the CCA request to Lowell Portfolio at the start of February and

 

i also sent a letter to yuill and kyle on the same day to inform them that i had done this.

 

have received no reply from lowell at all (altho when my husband called today seemingly it was an invalid ref no.

This was the one on the orignial letters)

 

My parents say they will pay the debt for us if we can get them to reduce the amount

 

my husband called lowell but they stated the account was with yuill and kyle now and they could do nothing.

 

Should we defend based on no CCA or will yuill and kyle accept a reduced figure?

defend it

 

even if it proves enforceable you can come to an agreement afterwards.

 

so why cant you find the true account number? credit file?

 

I strongly advise not speaking on the phone

they gave my husband the account number over the phone.

 

so what should i put on the court papers in order to defend it?

 

i looked at his credit file on noddle and there are just stars where the account number should be

 

i've looked out the littlewoods statements and the account number we had was the littlewoods account number

 

this was also quoted on our letters from yuill and kyle so they've obviously only recently changed the account number

can scan them up:??

 

**you can post up images/letters by this method immediately..you don't need 10 posts**

.

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.

Even if you lose the case you can make an application to enter into a Debt Arrangement Scheme

to block enforcement action such as wages or Bank account arrestment.

 

This way you can take care of the liability over an extended period at an affordable level.

 

I am not aware of your circumstances but this could be a better option than Time to Pay.

 

Should you lose the case the pursuer will need to serve a Charge For Payment,

 

If you decide to enter into DAS request through a free advice agency that an intimation is made in advance of the 14 day expiry date of the Charge.

 

I hope this information is useful should your defence fail.

Hi Suzi

 

I've just joined this group as I was looking for some info myself!

 

I appreciate what has been said above, but if you do not dispute the original debt is due you will have a hard time defending it, because there is no defence and you would be lying to the court to do so, in itself a criminal offence.

 

If you do dispute the debt, or want more info, have a look on the Scottish Courts website for guidance notes on what to do with the small claims summons.

 

I know how Yuill and Kyle and other similar firms operate. If you can't dispute the principal debt (as you've said) your best bet may be to try and seek a waiver of some of the additional costs and/or ask the court for time to pay.

 

The other option would be to make an offer to Yuill and Kyle in full and final settlement of maybe half of the total being claimed, but being careful to say that the offer was not an admission of liability and that the sum offered is all you could afford.

  • 3 weeks later...

I understand what you're saying

we dispute the amount being claimed and so far Lowell nor yuill and kyle have provided any documentation to state how much the debt was purchased for or any agreement at all to say they do infact own the debt.

 

starting to get nervous now

still no reply to the sar request

apart from a letter from yuill and kyle stating they had passed this on to Lowel

 

l. But when my husband had called Lowell originally

they said yuill and kyle had full charge of the account

 

I feel like they are both passing the buck here.

 

6 days until court papers are to be submitted what do I write on them??

 

I've no idea. If someone could help that would be great.
