    • 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.

we had a loan with blemain, which I will admit we didn't run well,

however we got right through the 99 month term and paid as per the instructions and monthly agreed amount.

 

However after the loan term ended I contacted them to make sure that we were clear

and got told we still owed £14009

 

as far as I can see from the breakdown they have sent me this is charges for missed payments/letters/phone calls etc etc,

but this is nearly 50% of the original amount we borrowed and just seems completely and utterly wrong,

 

I got in touch with the ombudsman but because its an unregulated loan there was nothing they could do,

 

I have had to agree to pay £245 per month until this is cleared,

but I just don't feel right doing this,

 

can someone please help,

as I really don't know which way to turn,

if I don't pay the monthly fee agreed they have threatened repossession.

stay off that phone

the penalty fees are not payable

the FCA clearly states they are unlawful.

 

even blemmy will never goto court for anything when the outstanding balance is their penalties.

 

tell them yo bugger off or removed them.

 

writing ONLY from now on

 

pay them nothing.

Hi no, nothing I am afraid, there doesn't seem to be anyone willing to help,

 

the ombudsman won't because they only started dealing with unregulated loans in 2013

and won't deal with anything prior to that,

 

its just like banging your head against a brick wall.

 

I have told Blemain the stress is making me ill,

so they have now sent me a form to complete with my doctor

- its just a joke, and they shouldn't be able to get away with it.

any updates?

 

 

I have been messaging someone from another forum who have gone through the exact same thing.

 

 

They had a loan of 30k completed.

With an outstanding balance of 15k of charges/fees.

 

 

They made it clear in writing they did not agree and will take the further matter if necessary.

 

 

It has now been nearly 12 months and they have heard nothing back!

No phonecalls, no letters no emails.

Hi Wungus,

i have been in the same boat and been in court,

yes for charges only,

so they will continue to court even if the payments for the loan have been paid they will pursue for the charges,

 

 

i have had a lot of charges removed including interest but there are many more remaining.

Hi, and what has happened at court so far if you don't mind me asking?

They wont do anything regarding the charges. Just ignore them. They wont touch your credit file, they wont do court. They will just expect you to pay ( theyre a sub prime lender afterall).

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
