    • ok Finally got home!   I'll try and keep it short however we finally got to an agreeable place   Walked over to sales as there was no more servicing could do especially as the aftersales manager quite simply said they will not be footing the bill. Spoke to the salesman, updated him and he was lost for words and had to ask me where things were left -  Requested senior management to come down - both head of business and general sales manager are off for half term.  That left the buying manager - ironically the same who purchased the car in for the dealership.  He was called downstairs but in the time that he did, he must have called the aftersales manager.   Once down, everything suddenly changed -  I was told they are now 'reaching a compromise' (I assume between the two departments) and it will be put right.  The part is being ordered, is on backorder for 2-3 weeks and once in, they will fit it. This of course means I am potentially out of my 30 day exchange/1000 mile exchange however appreciate I can drag it out if it came to rejecting it.    I got the aftersales manager to put in writing the part IS being ordered and if the part does not for whatever reason fix it, I CAN exercise the exchange regardless of how many days/miles I am out. --This was CCd to the sales manager, the service advisor and the buying manager stating he is accepting/making the decision in the absence of the two other managers.   So all in one- another wasted 5 hours there + the drive up/down but we are hopefully now at a point the final issue will be either permanently fixed or it will be the deciding factor of returning the car.  The part-ex has also gone so it's not like we could even just change back for now.   The part is scheduled to arrive pretty much the week of our due date which really messes this up in terms of transport/planning however we'll cross that bridge then - for now, I need to destress the other half who really did not need this especially with what is essentially for her the baby car    Could I ask - IF it does not fix it and we decide against the exchange - can we still reject?  If we can, what happens to the part-ex thats now gone/auctioned off?   I too believe 99% it will fix it but just curious.     Also just for anyone else taking an interest, the MMI unit that is faulty is not just the navigation but everything Audi - phone, radio, cd, sd card, service indicators, settings for the various components - its all part of the MMI brain.  And so the reason this is important that it is resolved is usually with this unit, if one part fails, it's likely the entire unit will fail.      
    • They don't have to care.  This is Britain - the biggest reaction will be some mild tutting.  The main goal now must be to keep the fear factor high whilst ensuring the pockets of the few continue to be lined.   
    • Cat 6 Marker then. Thats one of the worse you can get.  As @Andyorchsaid... You might need to go to the FOS etc to get this done. We had someone else who went all the way with Tesco and lost. Cat 6 Markers are very difficult to get removed.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Mahul04 - looking at the detail of your case so far, I see many similarities with my own that I went through last year.

 

 

You can defend this, but you'll need to have a clear understanding of how you're going to approach it.

You need to be able to convey strongly why a court cannot give judgement to the claimant based on that agreement document you posted up earlier in the thread.

 

 

You need to read up on cases where rulings have been passed down from the higher courts -

these act as 'authority' on certain points which may have previously been subject of interpretation. s.127(3) of the CCA is one particular point

and it is important where pre-April 2007 agreements are concerned.

 

Start with reading HSBC v Carey. This is a key case upon which you will get a good understanding of how you can challenge the enforceablilty of the agreement.

 

My prediction is that you'll challenge the legibility and incompleteness of the agreement produced by J&P

and they'll swiftly counter by producing a recon version.

It's all a bit of a game of trying to trap you, but you can back them into a corner if you can understand where the weaknesses are.

 

 

I and others will help you along the way, but it's essential that you read up on this.

You'll eventually have to state your case in front of a judge

- sounds daunting, but just try to enter into this little journey with the attitude of being willing to learn

and you'll find it much easier that you might think right now.

Thanks very much for your support guys im really lost and scared never done anything like this before ... will start to read this case today .. is there any other cases I could read about ..

Carey is pretty heavy going so I'd just stick to that for now - then cross reference with relevant sections of the CCA - http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1974/39/contents. This case is more focused on the enforceability of reconstituted agreements but it will give you a good grounding on the subject of the agreement - but my guess is that they'll produce a recon at some stage anyway.

 

You'll be relying heavily on Carey, so I'd suggest reading it several times. Perhaps skim over it a bit at first and you'll see bits that will be quite relevant. It'll be easier to read through the whole thing and take more in after a few goes at it.

 

Don't get too worried about it. You have plenty of time to get your head around things. Just out of interest, how would it affect your financial situation if you were to lose this case?

Yes, you will be able to make some form of payment plan - however, the amount being claimed is quite a lot so I couldn't say for sure how much they'd expect you to pay. Ultimately, you can only pay what you can afford. Do you own your own property?

 

You'll probably receive some Without Prejudice offers from J&P at some stage - my guess, being for around the account balance of £17k. It's up to you how you wish to play it. You can go back to them with a counter offer and see if they'll accept it. It just depends how much you're up for the fight and want to take the risk involved with going to court. This will probably be allocated to Fast Track so the winner in the case can also claim for costs (probably £3-5k on their side!)

 

They'll probably apply for Summary Judgement at some stage too. This might come first and then a WP offer - I can't remember how they played it with me.

 

Ultimately, this is a winnable case in my view. My guess is they won't have the original, but it's down to you to demonstrate that the court can not enforce the agreement without sight of the fully compliant and properly executed original copy (you need to read up and find out what constitutes a properly executed agreement). From reading other forum threads, you'll see that 'judge lottery' comes into play, but if you can get can create a good legal argument and deliver it through your witness statements and also in court, you should have every chance of walking away successful.

 

In the first instance, a strong witness statement will probably act as a signal of intent and might get the claimant to think through their position more carefully. That's where I'd be focusing my efforts for the moment. Ask for help on here any time - but read Carey and also get reading some threads involving MBNA and PRA/Aktiv Kapital - there'll be some example witness statement's posted there to give you an idea of what you should be aiming for.

 

Edit to add: Can you post up the CPR reply again - see advice from DX above before you post it.

This case HSBC Bank Plc v Brophy [2011] EWCA Civ 67, confirms that a Credit Card Application form constitutes a properly executed agreement under CCA 1974.

 

What is your defence? Because the defence that you have filed is only a holding defence to ensure that the claimant doesn’t get a default judgment against you.

 

Do you know if the default notice was a valid one or not?

 

I have read all of your thread and I think you are skating on very thin ice, £21k is a lot to gamble on and if you can’t defeat the claim you will end up facing a big costs bill on top of that.
