    • Well, we have also been done by Yewtree Cars/James Harrison! We bought a Land Rover Discovery from him off a dealer site on 28th December 2020. He advertised it as 1 loving owner (true, I tracked him down on Facebook, really nice guy!) throughout the advert WOW full dealership service history, WOW new cambelt, WOW new MOT, WOW full valet including decontamination clean WOW, WOW, WOW!!! We paid £4500 for the car plus £280 for delivery from Solihull to Winchester. He sent 3 texts reminding us to ‘look after the delivery guy cuz he’s a top man’! Soon worked out that HE was the delivery guy! They dropped the car off and scarpered. It was dark when it arrived, initial thoughts were it was disgusting inside. I have never seen such a filthy interior. He even left his sweet wrapper inside. He drove the vehicle down to us (we thought that we were paying for a transporter). It was running on fumes, so we took it out to get fuel. Straight away noticed automatic gearbox slipping. Not a good start. Next day messaged dealer asking for the receipt, twice, he said that he was in Dubai (in his dreams!) for 2 weeks but would send it when he got back.  Before he delivered the car, he said that if we weren’t happy he would personally come and collect it. Sent him a message (I like to keep proof of conversations) to say that we certainly weren’t happy and wanted to return it. His reply was - SOLD AS SEEN, YOU GOT A CHEAP CAR! Thinking we would have to cut our loses, we had a new gearbox put in, only to find that the crankshaft had also gone and then the bottom part of the engine had to be replaced. Also the suspension at the front was leaking oil (mentioned as an advisory on the previous mot, which he said had been done). He forged an entry in the service book saying that it had just had a cambelt change (false Land Rover stamp), confirmed by previous owner and Land Rover. So, after 8 weeks of being at the garage and £7000 - YES £7000! later we certainly did get a cheap car from him. Are we going to let this go? NO! I have found out his real name and I am going to pursue him through the court until I get this money back. He is the worst kind of confidence trickster, a lier and a thief. We will have no hesitation in scouring Solihull for him, whatever it takes.
    • You want to avoid any CCJ's, by ensuring all UK creditors have your current address abroad.  Also as dx suggests, making small payments based on current affordability would be wise.   Keeping the accounts running with original creditors bu making minimal payments, will give you time to consider options.   If it were myself in this position, I would be thinking how quickly could I get the tenants to vacate the UK property and how quickly could it be sold.  This would enable me to at least retrieve some equity after repaying any secured loan and the equity would then enable me to plan the next steps in my life.  I am not advocating walking away from debts, but I would be thinking, that if I end up with CCJ's or worse Bankruptcy, then with additional costs being added, I would have no money left.  And worse, if I had  to sell the property quickly, it may sell at a reduced price and I could still owe a debt after it had been sold.   So may be you should be getting some formal financial/legal advice in the near future, to see what you can do, to protects your interests as much as possible.    
    • Well rac just responded    Ironically they're saying they bear no liability as the - and this is their words   "the catastrophic engine damage had already occurred before the first patrol arrived"    I've emailed back to say simply that we are unable to accept this explanation as the patrol did not raise any concerns in regards to engine damage and that if the engine had been "catastrophically damaged" that they still bear liability for advising to continue towing on it which caused the actual failure    Gave them 14 days to reconsider before opening small claims...

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi All

 

As title stated, how can insurance company cancel policy for no reason or even false reason.

I had a motor transportation insurance which been cancelled by the insurance company with no reason giving and even without my knowledge,

 

Did read some thread over here claiming insurance company only require to sent a recorded letter regardless if received or not and regardless of the cancellation reason.

 

The cancellation has cost me so far £20000 refund for customer's booking. hire purchase, rent , mortgage, wages. and had to shut down my business totally as no any other insurance company are willing to offer me alternative insurance due to the crazy cancellation.

 

this is the first question i been asked by the other insurance company did you had any policy cancelled or void, obviously i have to say the truth and have nothing to hide, i do have a clean licence with 10 years no claim bonus.

 

when i did contact the insurance company ( the broker ) claim it is not them who cancelled it and i need to speak with staveley head, spoken with them they claim i have no space at my house address to sell cars or to keep my recovery trucks, but i am not trading from home,never said so, and they already has my industrial estate business address, then they change they word and says the industrial estate showing as Tesco site, then no it is a caravan site !!!

 

well there is a caravan site at the end of the industrial estate but has nothing to do with me, also Tesco is 2 miles away, however they asked for pictures of my unit and yard space around and i did sent them all pictures and even with video. the insdustrial unit has a large yard of 800 Sqm , then to the date no reply what so ever even after i sent 2 other email and recoded letter.

 

I am so close to be a bankrupt and have no idea what do it, it is been well over a month now and don't even have fund to pay for a solicitor as i have to keep my payment for the hire purchase vehicle , did make a complaint to the financial ombudsman however they claim i have to wait 8 weeks if no reply from the insurance company, thinking about taking a legal action myself, however there is no much information online about the real truth if the insurance company in UK have the right to cancel any insurance policy regardless of the reason or not.

 

any help will be much appreciated

Hello there.

 

I just wanted to check that your query is about Aviva please, as you haven't specifically mentioned them? The forum guys should be along later with advice for you.

You need to register formal written complaints with the head of the insurance company and the brokers, giving them all of the information. They obviously believe that wrong information about the risk has been provided or the business has changed, which you have not disclosed to them. Given the situation, if they don't resolve it quickly, you should see a Solicitor and look to take it further. The FOS might take ages and there are limits on what they would award if your complaint was upheld.

 

The FOS do allow 8 weeks fir companies to resolve first. Even courts would not get involved quickly, unless you applied for some urgent application ( see a Solicitor )

We could do with some help from you.

Hi steven10,

 

I'm sorry to read of the situation you're in and would like to try and help if your policy was with Aviva. If you haven't raised this as a complaint with our Customer Care team, I can do this for you if you're happy to send the details across to me at [email protected]

 

If you could look to include your full name, date of birth, post code and old policy number, along with any details you feel are relevant, I will link in with the correct team to investigate this for you. If you could also include your CAG username in your email, that would be great (just so we can link it to this post).

 

If you have already raised this with the Customer Care team, please feel free to send over your personal details (for data protection) via email and I will chase this with the relevant handler.

 

Thanks in advance,

Nicki

Hello again, thank you for the information. I'll move you out of the Aviva one and into the main insurance forum, with a link to follow.

 

I'm a bit confused about the relationship here. Staveley Head are brokers and Policy Plan is their appointed representative, so not an insurance company although they sound a bit like one. Are you insured with an insurance company please?

 

Hopefully Uncle Bulgaria or another of the regulars will see your thread and be able to shed some light on this.

I'm confused with all these broker names. I thought they were intermediaries who placed business with insurance companies. Hopefully someone in the know will be able to explain.

Sounds like Staveley Head ltd have a policy underwritten via a Gibraltar registered Insurers. You need to find out who is the managing director of Staveley and get a complaint registered.

 

You need to get to the bottom of what information they have which contradicts what you told them and led to the cancellation.

We could do with some help from you.

Hello again.

 

I've merged your threads about Staveley Head and Enterprise. Sometimes insurance companies can cancel policies, but it depends on things like their policy conditions and what's happened.

 

In post #14, Uncle Bulgaria suggested what you should do and find out. It's only by having information and understanding why the company/broker have done what they did that you can argue and tell them they're wrong. The reason we've asked questions is to find out who is responsible for what happened.

 

Have you complained to Staveley Head please?

Sorry i had enough over here. Seriously this is so frustrating and annoying please close this thread

all the information and reasons why they have canceled the policy and my complaint to all parties includes the financial ombudsman already listed in my first post, instead i am getting the exact same questions without a single reply or any useful information which is more annoying instead of getting help and answers i am getting questions and nothing apart from questions which doesn't help either .

i am looking for legal information if i should raise a court action and where i stand legally, there is no any answer to my question. i have already stated the reason previously.

I am giving up over here

Yes they can cancel for any reason, giving 7 days notice in writing.

 

It looks like Staveley are the ones who had reason to cancel. You need to find out why.
