    • @Man in the middle I've been searching the forum and you seem very knowledgeable. Would you mind giving a look at my query please? Thanks in advance!!
    • Thanks for this! I'm still not clear if I'm facing more than 6 points on my license though. Can you explain any further please? When I accept the 2nd speeding ticket, will they just charge me £100 and 3 points, or will they be more severe concenquences since that offense took place the following day of the 1st offense? Similarly, when I accept the 3rd offense, will they look at my record or just charge me with the £100 fine and 3 points?
    • Yes of course. That's why it says cc:: BIg Motoring World at the bottom. Don't imagine that this solves the issue. It doesn't. He not have to force the finance company and big motoring world to accept the rejection to give your money back. I suggest that you get the letter off tomorrow. And let us know what you hear but on Friday you should then send a threat to the finance company.   Have a look what I have said here about your options and read the whole thread as well.  
    • Been perusing the actual figures on the polls above wondering where the '16% claimed for deform comes from? I understand that there are 'weighted' end results based on secret calculations ...   Probably going to repeat this later, but remember that the ukip/brexit/reform/deform party has ALWAYS had poll speculation FAR better than their actual  performance at elections - by large margins. SO: The labor and Tory votes come largely from simply the people who say they will vote for them - sorted Lab 43% Tory 20%, with maybe another small 1-2% coming from the weightings of the 'not sures' Greens largely get what is declared from 'other' , although with another declared green bit from the 'pressed' question   So as the share of the voting displayed in 'other' granted to reform/deform is around 11%, where does the '16% too often being reported come from? Seems that reform has been granted as beneficiary of effectively ALL the don't knows and wont says, who when pressed didn't actually declare for someone else ... effectively adding 40%+ to their reported polling % - rather strange given their consistent under-performance compared to polling - or perhaps that is the cause of the higher rating eh?   Now I admit the possibility (probability?) of wingers being ashamed of declaring their support for the yuckey lemon end of the spectrum ... but surely  that should affect the 'Torys as well? Maybe the statisticians have simply weighted in that deform wingers are simply more likely to lie?   But - without 'weightings' and assumptions that faragits will get everything that isnt declared as a definite and unequivocal 'not that Piers Morgan' - reform is on around 11% it seems.   Add to that the history of polling a lot less than the hype - and the simple fact that faragit wingers seem to be spread across the country (presumably skulking in their moms spare room despite being 45+) and greens and lib dems seem to be community minded - I think two seats will be an epic result for farage. Hardly the opposition - far more raving wingnut party.   and importantly - Has farage got a home in clacton yet?

    • 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 guys,

you've helped me out many times and I come asking again.

 

When I was young, naive and irresponsible,

I said to many forms of credit when I wasn't in a secure job.

 

I have 4 defaults.

3 are settled are will all be older than 6 years old in January.

One however is causing me some distress.

 

The account start date is 27/12/2006 however the default date is 30/11/2011.

I cant remember what is was for, all it says is unsecured loan.

 

I am sure the last payment I would have made would have been in 2007 at the very latest

as looking back at bank statements which go up to 2007 online,

 

I have no payments going out for anything credit wise.

 

Also my credit file only has information on the balance of this defualt from 12/2011.

 

No previous balance history, payments etc.

 

Just a account number with most the number starred out.

 

My questions are:

 

1. How can I find out who the debt is with?

2. Can a default be placed 4 years after I stopped paying?

3. If i send an SAR, who do I send it to.

 

I'm sure this debt should be statuate barred or nearly there.

If I could find out what the debt is for I could prove when my last payment was.

 

Any help would be amazing as Im going for a mortgage in 6 months time.

Can I just clarify a few things.

 

On my credit report, the balance on the default is the same throughout,

 

the account start date is 2006

 

however the balance only goes back to Dec 2012?

 

I find it bazaar that the date of default was 30/11/2011,

 

its shows a balance of 574 only from Dec 2012 till now.

 

See screen shot,

 

I have erased my address.

The default balance will remain the same if no payment has been made.

 

A lot of Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) only show the last 12 months data (some do longer)

 

If you want a fuller detailed explanation, you would need to send the relevant CRA a Subject Access Request (SAR) This costs £10 and they have 40 days to comply (SAR templte letter in Library)

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Before spending a tenner as in writing for any earlier data, address to the Data Controller at the CRA, you will need to check all 3 main agencies.

 

So could cost £30 if you SAR them all.

Ref: Use Lowells:

 

Date............:

 

Dear Ms de Tute,

 

I refer to entries made on my credit reference file by Lowell (printout attached for information).

 

 

On checking my credit file I have discovered that Lowell has changed the default date on the entries from xx.xx.xxxx to xx.xx.xxxx

and I now require Lowell to immediately correct the data it has placed on ALL credit reference agency files to which it has reported the erroneous data.

 

Lowell will then confirm in writing that it has complied with this instruction.

 

Send by recorded signed for post check delivery date.

If you had a different address (es) at anytime during the accounts life it would be wise to list them on the SAR.

Right

I got round to posting SAR 08/02/14.

 

Got a reply yesterday telling me they need a certified copy of my passport or drivers license etc as "original seen" by a doctor, accountant etc.

 

They letter was also written by HSBC who deals with the HFC accounts.

 

Can I just go into branch to sort this or shall I just get a certified copy to stop the games and get my SAR?

Take the letter to the local branch with ID and get them to check it and sign an attach the branch stamp.

To save time I sent a certified copy of my drivers license to speed things up

making it clear that they should need proof ID as they have been sending me letters etc to my address

and should they have any doubts it should have been rectified a long time before sending me bank statements etc.

 

On another note,

 

 

I raised a dispute with the credit reference agency and it has been marked on the debt as "in dispute".

 

 

Is this a good sign or just standard procedure?

 

 

Its passed the 28 days limit thats why its been marked as in dispute.

Ok so I'm still awaiting the SAR, 40 days is up in a week or so.

 

I raised a dispute with my credit reference agency who looked into it and found nothing wrong.

 

However, I have since then received a letter from Lowell confirming that they replied to a recent enquiry

 

and that the default notice was sent to me in 2008 and that I can feel free to pay them now (haha).

 

What should be my steps from here?

 

On my credit report the default date is 2011.

 

Shall I now write to Lowell with the attached letter, or my credit reference agency, or the OC to amend the date?

 

The default has been placed on my account 3 years after the notice which surely isn't fair.

Good morning,

 

 

I think a little more research is needed, Lowell have only confirmed that a "DN was sent" in 2008 not that a default was actually placed at that time.

 

 

A DN is purely a notice of intention to default the account if the account is not remedied within the time scale stated.

 

 

Is the 2011 date certain as the default date or could it be the date that Lowell updated the file?
