    • So that means they still have another 6 years to enforce a CCJ even after the debt has been SB-ed?
    • Need to get your DQ in - it's your opportunity to have a say in what happens next! It should then transfer to local court, who will look at the DQs and determine next actions. Fairly self-explanatory and there are guidance notes on the site here. My Asset/Link/Kearns case was reviewed a couple of weeks ago after transferring to local court and they have been ordered to provide a new CPR-compliant Particulars of Claim, Original Agreement, Deed of Assignment and Notice of Assignment. They have six weeks to comply or it's struck out. As with your case they are relying on a generic print out of an agreement with no personal details or signature. Don't give the courts a chance to make any decisions without your input and get that N180/N181 in! Your call as to whether you want mediation - given the lack of evidence from them there is probably no point as you can't mediate an account that appears not to exist.
    • FYI I've had a copy from Kearns arrive today of the DQ from the claimant agreeing to referral to the Small Claims Mediation Service and without a hearing. I am a bit wary of the two replies above from you both. Which is the most relevant and most urgent to action? I'm away from Sunday the 19th to Wednesday 22nd working abroad and am conscious there's a bank holiday the day before the deadline so it doesn't give me much time to collate and post relevant paperwork either to you or the parties involved. Do I just fill in the N180 and post?  Apologies for my ignorance, It's out of my comfort zone! Also my case seems to be over the £10k barrier?  
    • Hello,  Me again, back with more questions from my friend because she doesn't want to deal with this part of her life.  She has managed to set up a repayment plan with 247money for the next 3 months.  We have looked at her car finance and she would have reached the 50% payment in Aug 2025  She has 2 questions.  When it comes to Aug 2025 what are her options for VT, I've read a few things and honestly the car sites all seem to give information in different wording so it's hard the grasp the core facts.  If she were to just stop paying the car now, obviously they would action repossession but what is the after math, money outstanding, impact on credit file, court action.  Thank you,

    • 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.

Hello all, this is my first time posting so please be gentle.

 

The long and short of it is my daughter has been extremely hard work from birth and only when she reached 9 did we get some answers and diagnosis or her problems. These include hypermobility, attention deficit disorder, sensory processing disorder, dyspraxia and sleep disorders. Her primary school were very restrictive and actively prevented us gaining outside help for her but we applied for dla (my dates are very rough so please excuse me!) around 2011 when she was around 9/10 and were refused, we eventually went to appeal in around 2012 (yes it really took that long!) the appeal was informal and not too stressful and we were awarded middle rate care which was awarded for 2 years but about 20 months of that was backdated so it ran out within 4 months and we reapplied in 2014 and again were refused, again we went to appeal which took until May this year (her now being 13)... the appeal was highly distressing so say the least, it took place in the magistrates court 2/3 of the panel were very aggressive in their questioning .. constantly almost trying to catch me out ... I felt like i was on trial for murder rather than just trying to get what my daughter is entitled too! We were awarded lower rate care backdated and in place until feb 2016 (2 years again with only a few months left until reclaiming), but were told there was more recent information that they couldn't take into consideration but we should submit that information to a super cession for care. So we did this and last week received a no for care and the reclaim pack for her mobility/dla claim ........

 

I am now in a predicament .... they already said no for care and the mobility is up for renewal. I categorically know they will not award it and I know for a fact I will need to return to tribunal which I honestly do not think I can cope with, the stress of the situation has put me on higher dose antidepressants for anxiety and stress! Yet I feel an injustice that I am having to go through all this? The money massively helps replace items such as clothing my child eats/bedding she ruins and carpets and such like, it also allows her to partake in activities during the holidays especially for her, so it is important.

 

I even had input from somebody from the disablement action group with the tribunals but they appear to be very busy and I cant think about doing through all this again, does anyone have any advice?

 

Thank you x

Have you been in contact with any of the local welfare rights groups in your area? You have to give as much information as you can. You can't for example, just say she needs help doing something. You have to spell it out for them and explain why and how she needs more help than a non disabled 13 year old.

Well the DAG group were helping with forms and such like and appeals, still won at appeals but never had a smooth renewal. Her needs mean her supervision is more than a non disabled 13 year old hence is getting awarded LRM at appeal in May but they always refuse at renewal.

Child DLA is really difficult to get, and often needs someone with good experience of child DLA to help. Evidence from the school is also very important in child claims.

 

What sort of evidence do you have? School? Doctors? Other professionals?

 

also I'm not clear on what the current award is, can you clarify please.

This last part for the super cession they didn't get any info from school but schools are a whole other problem!

 

We have peadtrician reports which discuss her medications and any other issues (ever 3 months) CAMHS paperwork stating due to self harming she needs supervision, i also sent a iep from school about her extra support academically, that was just this time, for previous claims there were OT reports too which stated her dyspraxia meant her co ordination was at 4 years 8 months ( this is obviously very old now!)

 

Current award is low rate mobility which we were awarded at tribunal in May but expires in february (have now sent claim pack!)

Can you request the info from school yourself? DWP only request info if they feel they need it.

 

The info from school isn't helpful to be honest, I saw the info at the last tribunal - the DWP asked for it, it stated she had poor road safety awareness but this had not been seen in school (well because school is not on an open road lol )

 

I assume if I reapply for February they will re-contact school.

Then you need to see a consultant who can state categorically what behaviours can be attributed to her conditions, then get the school to state what behaviours she demonstrates and needs intervention with at school.

We are under a peadtrician/consultant but the medical reports are so vague and state little due to the frequency we visit, they usually state her heigh, weight and status of medications and how they are/ar enot helping. Feel like there just isn't someone specific who can back up what I am saying. I know on the forms they dislike you stating diagnosis as such as they like how this affects the child which I am sure I have done x

You could pay for a private consultation and report from your consultant and set specific parameters for the report. You could request through the GP to see a behavioural psychologist who would be able to give you very relevant information, and may also be able to assist with behaviour change.

 

If you pay for a consultation and/or report there is no guarantee of a favourable report or outcome, even if you can afford a report in the first place.
