    • Thank you for your advice.  The owner is happy to write to the Bailiffs and include a copy of his council tax bill and a utility bill. Should he show proof of van ownership too? Would he need to photocopy insurance and v5 documentation for that?   Sorry to ask probably very silly questions.    Also should he write to the Creditors with the same information?  How far can the Creditors take this. With no savings, income or home etc, there is no way to recover anything right now.  Thank you    I 
    • See what you think about the attached.  I haven't really changed your arguments, merely changed the order to make them more obvious for the judge.  Please check for accuracy. I've also royally knackered the numbering and layout Regarding your partner's WS, cut out the first paragraph as it's unnecessary and confusing with its talk of appeals. I see the PCN mentions the amount may rise to £120 if you don't pay - then the idiots went for £170 in their court claim!  Very bad own goal. I also see their solicitors say they won't turn up to the hearing - if so you're more or less guaranteed to win.   Defendant's WS - version 2.pdf
    • Hi,. I purchased a car from In Herts Motors on the 9th July 2024.  They told me it had an intermittent fault with a sensor which was just a sensor issue. The tyres were threadbare so I went to get them replaced on the 11th July, the mechanic pointed out white smoke coming from the engine bay.  I got this investigated and the car has actually got a blown head gasket. Judging by the mess it has been blown for sometime. I contacted the company and requested a refund or repair as I've had the car 3 days at this point, they are flatly refusing claiming they told me the Engine was faulty, this is a barefaced lie. I've had to raise a county court case to deal with this matter.  My question here is what do I do with the car?  I have had to bite the bullet and buy one on finance from Cinch.  Do I SORN the car or do I sign it back over to the trader and park it on the street? I've only one parking bay and my new car is going in there.   Thanks guys.

    • 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 a question re the above, not sure if this is the correct place for a general question.

 

Some years ago Cabot took my wife to court over a Barclaycard account, although there was no signed agreement,

 

 

my wife and I disputed the amount, we were advised by the judge to enter into a Tomlin order agreement.

 

 

We have been making regular payments on that ever since, making sure we don't default.

 

 

It is my understanding that a Tomlin order is old fashioned and it has now been superceded by a IVA's.

 

 

I further understand that these IVA's run for a maximum of 5 years, after which the account is deemed cleared.

Is this correct, and if so does this apply to our Tomlin order?

 

Just as an aside to this

I heard on the radio last week that some people who had entered into an IVA

and had paid for five years AND had received a final 'completion' letter from their creditor,

found that if they had any sort of windfall (such as a PPI repayment) suddenly got a new demand for repayment

even though they had a completion letter.

It was thrown out by the court but they tried it on.

when was the CCJ

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

There was never a CCJ, the Tomlin agreement was made on the advice from the judge. The judge said that we should reach an agreement, so I had to follow his advice. We left his chambers and Cabot lawyers and myself discussed firstly the amount owed, which I managed to get reduced, then I made a nominal monthly offer backed up by a home budget plan, which they had to accept. We then went back before the judge to inform him we had reached an agreement. This was four years ago. The judge said if it had gone before him he would have awarded Cabot much more, so I did OK.

I myself have a Tomlin Order

 

These orders are sealed by the court and are not old fashioned. It stopped me from getting a CCJ.

 

It is my understanding that only the agreement from the creditor (Cabot) or a redetermination from the court that sealed the order can change the terms of that order.

 

I myself wold leave this well alone but i am not legally qualified to advise, i am going on my own experience as to the Tomlin order

A Tomlin Order and a IVA are two completely different beasts...the Tomlin finishes once the debt is repaid.

Would depend on the terms of the Tomlin CB...if the Schedule stated that the F&FS agreed figure was accepted with regards to the debt and that no further claims can be brought in connection.

Very rare ...but I have had dealings with this clause....were the defendant has allowed it to be included or simply not spotted or understood its consequences.

But if its not in the schedule then of course you are quite correct CB...if there is a PPI element involved in the posters question.

Just to clarify. The reason for my question is this. Whilst talking to a financial adviser she informed me that Tomlin orders have been replaced with IVA's. It is a voluntary agreement of scheduled payment between a creditor and debtor. A Tomlin order means that if there is a default the creditor can obtain a court order for any outstanding money. The second reason for the question is that a recent money box program stated that after five years of payment under a IVA the debt is cleared.

Your financial advisor needs to be careful with her advice.

 

A Tomlin Order is an agreement between you and that specific Claimant only AFTER court proceedings have been issued and there is no public record kept of the details. It stays Court proceedings and you pay for as long as it takes to clear the amount. If you breach the TO then it is likely you will get a CCJ.

 

An IVA is similar to bankruptcy. It is a formal agreement between you all all of your creditors and your home could be at risk. It is not sealed by the Court but a public record is kept unlike a TO.

 

There's much more to both but the above is a brief outline.

Thanks Ganymede. It was a person fron National Debtline who stated Tomlin orders were old fashioned and IVA's are now being used, hence my confusion. They are two different structures. That leaves me a little confused though over the court proceedings. My wife was summoned by Cabot, and I met with their legal people before a judge, he stated that he had had a look over the case and advised me to reach an agreement with Cabot. I was quite willing to pay, but didn't want the Tomlin order part, but didn't seem to have a choice. We went to an adjoining room and hashed out the terms, then went back in to see the judge where Cabot confirmed an agreement had been made. Maybe I'm being stupid here but does that qualify as 'court proceedings' as you state? The judge didn't really take any part in it other than to advise me.

You need to keep away from that Nation Debt line then...if that's their advice:madgrin:
