    • Hi All   After a bit of advice to see where I stand. Bought a car in Sept 2022 on pcp. Been told it had a big inspection and was good to go. Had many issues with it throughout the year including trims coming off the car and sunroof not closing.   While getting the sunroof repaired at month 12, in Sept 2023, the bodyshop guy said your cars been in a bad accident. Garage said it hasn't but offered to take the car back at half of what I paid for it as long as I buy a replacement from them before inspecting it (probably damage control) (car was £78k, said they'd offer £40k "trade in value" as if doing me a favour).   Ended up getting a forensic inspection done for £2400 in Dec 2023, confirmed car was in a bad smash (write off level but unrecorded on hpi) and potentially unsafe to drive - front end is slightly bent towards 1 side, what looks like a hairline crack on the chasis, overspray, bonner with patches of filler all over it, damaged rubbers etc   Raised complaint to finance company and few weeks ago to FOS... just wondering what people's experiences have been like going through the FOS, main thing that concerns me is that it was 12-13 months after I bought the car that I realised what caused these issues and raised the issue to the garage/ finance co but the damage/ misaligned panels are actually visible in the advert photos which I saved thankfully.    Dealership has had my car for 4 weeks to let a few bodyshops look at it (without giving me a courtesy car!!!) Not giving me any updates either because I went to the FOS about it and didnt want to speak to them over the phone anymore as opposed to emails. Note: hanging trim was reported within 3 months but due to part delays it didn't come until like July 2023, within 2 months the piece came off again, claimed under repairers warranty for another replacement 6 weeks ago and within 2 weeks this time the trim is coming off AGAIN (assuming it won't stay on due to the car being actually bent out of shape slightly)   Any idea if I have a good case or if there's anything else I can do?   Thanks
    • After the dealer failed to refund the money I checked the sort code and account number to reveal which bank received the money. It turned out to be HSBC BUSINESS DIRECT ONLINE. I called them and they confirmed the account name wasn’t Langley Cars though obviously didn’t tell me the correct account name. My bank contacted HSBC after I reported this to be fraud and they did in fact do a charge back but reversed the decision when the dealer sent a copy of the receipt he gave me for the deposit where it said it was non-refundable. I said that doesn’t mean anything when the car should never have been put on the forecourt when it was a death trap, and not fit for purpose.   The MOT revealed only a few of the faults which he agreed to correct in a week as I needed the car to travel out of London for work. He didn’t meet that deadline either because there were other more serious problems as identified by my independent car check. The same mechanic informed the dealer of these faults. The car wasn’t fixed by the agreed date due to the extensive repairs needed. So he was in breach of our contract on many levels.    I requested the bank find out the correct name of the account and they said the only information they had was like you said was the account number and sort code. I challenged the bank stating that whenever I create a new payee if the name doesn’t match the registered account name, it declines the creation of the proposed payee. So what happened in this instance?    I checked company’s house using the address from where the dealership is located and there was neither the two names, one was aa advertised in AUTOTRADER and the other on the courtyards entrance. I thought as I had made payment to the dealers ‘Trading as’ name that it would more than likely be enforceable than any other. Indeed the Bailiff was the one to call me and say that a variation of the warrant of control needed to be done before he could go and enforce the order. I cross-checked the address on Companies House website and got 3 different business names. Only one appears to be car related.  I am unsure as to what I can do within the variation of the warrant which the bailiff felt was appropriate. I will speak to him again Monday. 
    • Their PCN does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. iit was not posted until 13 days after the event for one thing meaning it would be deemed to arrive on the 15th day instead of the 14th day. Now though we cannot expect that your PCN also missed the deadline there were still two other things wrong with the wording of the PCN that if your PCN has the same wording as your friends means that your PCN would not be compliant either. Their PCN does not specify the period of parking as required n the Act. It does show the ANPR arrival and departure dates but as those times include driving from the entrance to finding a parking place then later driving from the parking place to the exit cannot be described as a parking period. I suspect that the " Important Note" on your form will also not comply though I cannot be sure until we see your actual PCN.The reason I can't confirm that is because they sent out the PCN too late they have said that they are pursuing your friend on the assumption that they were the driver as well as the keeper-something that Courts do not accept. But it does look as if your PCN is not compliant which means that the keeper cannot be held liable to pay the charge. Only the driver can be made to pay it. If you have not appealed and revealed who was driving, there is no way that  Excel know who was driving.  So just to be sure please send them an SAR . On another topic do you have any proof that you did not stay there for so long just to really spoil Excel's day.
    • As your first PCN was a Notice to Driver which would have been followed by a Notice to keeper over a month later [even though it may only state Parking Charge notice] it is even more necessary to send PE an SAR. If either document fails to comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act  2012 Schedule 4 then both you and your father are in the clear. So you do not need to worry about is any paperwork from unregulated debt collectors and fifth rate solicitors. The only thing to look out for is a Letter of Claim and all you have to do is respond with a snotty letter back to them .

    • 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.

Where are these silly rumours coming from. He can't do anything on his own, he would be the leader of a party and anything done would be by consent of parliament.

The things being said make his role seem dictatorial, he will be the sole ruler.

This is the right wing press imagining Corbyn winning a majority and being able to do many things.

 

As some economists have said, Corbyn has a point that government has a role to play in bringing into the public sector any critically important business that has failed e.g RBS, Lloyds. Could you imagine what would have happened if Labour had allowed those Banks to go bust.

 

I believe that state industries can offer better services to the public and earn the country money. Look at how many UK utility companies are partly or wholly owned by foreign governments.

We could do with some help from you.

Privatised companies charge up to 10% more than their operating costs to the end consumer as a guaranteed profit margin.

 

If that fails the Tax payer bails them out to that 10% margin

 

Privatised industries have a Win-win agreement

 

How can that be fair to joe public??

Because they would then be a private company with shareholders and a profit making company. The government will have got a nice purse from the sale.

 

No one goes into business without the intention of making a profit and 10% if a very low profit margin.

HIS HEROES, would you trust him to run this country???

CORBYN ON THE IRA

Asked on Ulster radio if he’d condemn the Irish terrorist group, Corbyn

repeatedly avoided a direct answer—simply saying: ‘I condemn all bombing.

It is not a good idea, and it is terrible what happened.’

He added: ‘Look, I condemn what was done by the British Army as well as

other sides. What happened in Derry in 1972 [bloody Sunday] was pretty

devastating.’

Corbyn had previously invited Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams to the Commons

weeks after the IRA murdered five people in the Tory Conference bomb at

Brighton. In 1987, he observed a minute’s silence for IRA men killed by the SAS.

During the troubles between 1969 & 2001, an estimated 1,800 people—including

women and children—are estimated to have been murdered by the IRA.

ON HEZBOLLAH AND HAMAS

‘It will be my pleasure and honour to host an event in Parliament where our friends

from Hezbollah will be speaking. I’ve also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak.

‘The idea that [Hamas] should be labelled as a terrorist organisation by the UK government

is really a big, big historical mistake.’

Most governments regard the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation,

guilty of war crimes, torture, murder, abductions and deliberately targeting Israeli citizens.

ON SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC

(Yugoslav leader accused of genocide)

Corbyn opposed military strikes against the brute’s attacks in Kosovo. In 2004, he signed a

Commons motion praising Left-wing journalist John Pilger ‘on his expose’ of the fraudulent

justification for intervening in a “genocide” that never really existed in Kosovo”.

Milosevic was put on trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for atrocities, including genocide

and crime against humanity .

ON HUGO CHAVEZ

(Former socialist president of Venezuela)

‘Thanks, Hugo Chavez, for showing that the poor matter and wealth can be shared. He made massive

contributions to Venezuela and a very wide world.’

The hard-line Marxist brought a rich oil economy to its knees—leaving his country a basket case,

ravaged by poverty and inflation.

ON CUBA

He praised Marxist Fidel Castro’s ‘achievements’ in healthcare and education and ‘the esteem in

which Castro is held.

More than a million people fled the dictator’s regime while he enriched himself.

PS After Lady Thatcher died, he said: ‘I don’t think we should be spending

all this money on recalling Parliament and a quasi-state funeral.’

Before you start on this band wagon of attacking Corbyn like you did with George Galloway

 

Might i remind you of the Good Friday Agreement

 

If the then labour Government failed to negotiate with Sinn Féin we would still have bodies in the street

 

If just one life is saved through talking then that has to be worth it

 

And by the way, i did three tours myself

 

You disgust me with all this negative propaganda.

 

Be it Corbyn is elected or not, the electorate will decide

Now why did I not expect a response like that I ask myself??

Anything can be twisted, to suit what you wish to believe, all I have done

is to list what he has said in the past, you say this so called (in your words negative propaganda)

it just happens to be fact weather you wish to believe it or not, that is entirely up to you.

You are correct the electorate will decide, I would like to think that they are not as naïve,

as some politicians seem to think they are, when trying to pull the wool over their eyes.

You mention the Good Friday Agreement I would not call this an agreement, I would be

more inclined to call it an appeasement to murders, who have been let off, and would

in my opinion do the same all over again if it suited them to do so, and I would not rule

that out either, in the future.

Just remember nothing in this world is for free, somebody has to pay for it, I assume you are

in receipt of a military pension some body has to pay for it.

 

I have every respect for ex-servicemen, I served in the military myself for 28 years.

 

Don’t even start me on George Galloway.

The IRA are still alive and kicking and Gerry Adams is still their boss. If not, then how does he know "Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams has said the IRA was not involved in the murder of ex-IRA man Kevin McGuigan Sr."

What is interesting is the same old crap coming out of labour party HQ

 

Have any of the other three leadership contenders besides Corbyn gone on record saying what they will do to win back the trust of the British public?.

 

Labour have lost the last two General election with this Blairite crap.

 

That is why Corbyn has mass support, and it terrifies the Oxbridge crowd. The people have spoken

What you are saying is the people want to change the country to communism with a dictator in charge. Silly talk.

Even if he should become leader, as said earlier, he can't do a single thing by himself, so it makes no odds who is the leader so why are you cheering like a One Direction fan.

The source no doubt is Tory Party Central HQ, just like his other posts

 

This is a debating thread, not a kipper echo chamber of self glorification

 

The Tories are terrified of him as his policies appeal to the Greens and SNP as well. That is why we have this constant negative propaganda

 

That negative propaganda is not working by the way

At least Jeremy (JC) as started a debate. Middle of the road/PC politics from the labour party have left it dead in the water. JC is not the messiah nor do I agree on most of his polices but at least he shows signs of life. The three corpses who wish to replace the last deadend leader of the labour party would not have an original thought if you put 5,000 volts through them. I fear that no credible opposition will emerge that can challenge the conservatives.

The Tories were written off only 10 years ago. They went through 3 leaders between 1997 and 2005.

 

Remember Cameron has a nightmare on his hands in the form of the EU referendum ! It is looking like Cameron will ask the British public to vote to stay in the EU, even though he had not obtained any reforms.

 

Also we have the migration issue and the world economy likely to be unhelpful in the next few years.

We could do with some help from you.

The statements you have made suggest to me that you consider Jeremy Corbyn to have come from an ordinary background, and that he is just an ordinary working class person. (breath of fresh air??).

Secondly why when making a comment in relation to HIS HEROES, would you trust him to run this country??? did you just mention the IRA how about his other friends?
