    • 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 currently have 3 credit card debts which have been defaulted and are now with DCA's

and have been paying them off to varying degrees for 5 ish years.

 

I'm in the position where I can offer reasonable full and final settlements,

so decided to send CCA requests to them all to hopefully help me with the negotiation.

 

None of them replied within the 30 days so I stopped paying.

I'm not trying to avoid paying, just negotiate a reasonable figure.

 

I've had a response back from DLC re an MBNA card I took out in November 2002 ( I have 2 with them).

This card is showing on my credit file as defaulted in June 2010 with a balance of £11239. The current balance is £6139.

 

They've actually sent me a CCA which is signed and dated by me from 2002.

The form is signed on the front and the terms on the back, it's a cheque book sized form.

 

They've also included what looks to be reconstituted terms which is 7 pages long but not signed.

 

The signed form seems to have all of the prescribed terms, so may have made my situation worse rather than better. I've ticked the "no PPI box".

 

My query is, the signed document states 15.9% APR but the other version states 23.9%, does this make any difference?

 

I haven't sent an SAR so don't know what I was charged..

 

They're obviously asking me how I intend to clear it, which I haven't responded to yet.

I'll try and pay the £25 per month I was paying before although they've got a stronger case now.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

Believe if its pre 2007, they need the inception T&Cs for the card... And i believe it must be the original too...

The site team should give you more info.

application form NOT a credit agreement ibet.

 

 

the t&C must be the right version for the date of inception

and have yu correct address for time of your card.

 

 

sounds just like what they do with CAP1 debts.

 

 

they get out their file of scanned T&C's

insert 'an' address in them

and fire them off with a copy of the application form

 

 

hoping the OP wont spot any mistakes.

 

 

that system DOES NOT satisfy a CCa request.

 

 

its abouttime the FCA/FOS did something about this dodgy practice

of trying to spoof people into these fake documents being 'real'

Sorry, I've only just seen this reply. The document with my signature looks like the bottom section of a form.

 

It does say credit agreement across the top and where my signature is it says "This is a credit agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974(?)"

 

Are you saying that it's not enough for them to enforce?

doubtful.

 

 

I've moved you to the MBNA forum.

 

 

there are numerous threads here regarding the application forms and the correct T&C's that must be with them

for the application forum to be an actual agreement.

Reply from DLC attached as requested. The debt shows on my CRA as Hillesden but I've been dealing with DLC.

 

The address on the signed form is my old one, but the one on the terms is my existing one.

 

APR on the signed form is 15.9% but 23.9% on the terms.

 

Also, the default charges on the terms are £12 even though the original form is from 2002.

 

The enclosed terms clearly aren't those applicable at the time that I signed.

 

Any suggestions as what to do next gratefully received.

 

Thanks

Reply to SARs from DLC re both accounts.

 

There's no information whatsoever from the original creditor (MBNA).

 

They say that they don't have copies of the default notices because they outsource them(?),

but have attached a copy of a template default letter and the data that would have been used to create them?

 

 

Both debts show on my CRA as originally being with MBNA, defaulted in 2010 and settled (one in 2010 and one in 2014)

and are now with Hillesden and are both showing as defaulted in 2010?

 

Can they show a default if they can't provide copies of the original default notices?

 

The statements of account only show information from when the debt was bought by DLC/ Hillesden

and again they haven't included anything at all from MBNA, with no mention of any more information to come.

 

Other than copies of the original application forms and copies of reconstituted terms,

they don't appear to have any other information from MBNA.

 

 

I assume that there will be overcharges to claim back re late payments etc.,

but they obviously can't provide that information.

 

 

Where do I stand now?

 

Grateful for any feedback please.

 

 

Thanks

Unfortunately they are correct wrt default notices. They are outsourced and MBNA retain only the data not the document. Many of their default notices gave insufficient remedy time but you can't prove if you didn't keep them.

 

Even if you had, it may well have been of no consequence as court often deem this to be de minimis.

 

Get SAR to MBNA sent off asap. That should produce, amongst other things, statements to enable you to reclaim penalty charges.

I've had letters from DLC re both accounts. I haven't made a payment since I started this process. They're threatening to proceed with a court claim that they originally started in September 2011 but was stayed because I re-set up a regular payment. They're quoting the original claim numbers.

 

Any feedback as to how likely this will be? Can it be stayed this long, or would they need to start again?

 

As above they don't have the original terms, only the applications and reconstituted terms.

 

Thanks in advance.

Also, I've had my SAR back from MBNA.

 

I've calculated that, going back 6 years, I've been charged a total of £5821 in late fees and "Finance Charges". I think the finance charges may be interest, so I'm not sure they're reclaimable? With 8% applied, it comes to £8975.

 

Can someone advise as to what, how far back and how I can claim back penalty charges please.?

 

Thanks again

Not really. I missed a payment because I was away and when I got back claim papers had been sent. I made the payment straight away plus costs and they stopped the claim, that's as far as it went.

 

They're making out as though it's stayed, although I'm not sure what the official status with the court is.

 

Thanks again for the input

Done that. There are 2 claims from September 2011.

 

 

The claims are stayed because there's been no activity,

 

 

I thought they were closed to be honest.

 

There's been nothing submitted by Hillesden, so they would need to apply to have both claims unstayed (if that's the word) give their reasons why and pay a fee.

 

They're saying they've abided by my s78 request.

 

 

I don't believe they have provided the original credit agreements,

 

 

just application forms with reconstituted terms.

 

Any suggestions welcome.

 

Thanks

ok that's great

 

 

until/unless they supply an enforceable agreement

and pay to lift the stay

 

 

and the court writes to tell you so

IMHO you ignore them

 

 

willy waving!
