    • 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.

I bought a car via black horse in march 2011.

the amount of credit shown on th credit agreement is £5499.85 over 60 months.

 

I VT'd due to loss of employment in jan 2013 after making £2859.89 worth of payments.

 

The car was auctioned for £1821.

 

My halfway payment on the agreement shows as £4611.22.

 

so total received by BH is £4680.89 (more than the halfway payment)

 

I am now being chased for £1203 by mackenzie hall.

 

My question is

can i include the sold price to the halfway point or is it payments only?

 

also, they have charged me a £25 'repossession fee' i thought it was supposed to be free.

 

I've looked but cant find the answer to question 1 anywhere.

I'm hoping someone here can clear this up for me before i start contacting them.

 

Thankyou

I am sending a SAR to them.

the reply was a bit confusing because it states 'payments only i believe' then says 'you've paid more than half so they can go swivel!!'

I will let your know how i get on with the SAR.

 

Thanks for your help :)

That's easy to check. The agreement will have 'total amount payable' and you will know your monthly payments and how many you made. If payments made comes to half (or more) of 50% of the 'total amount payable', then you can VT.

 

The terms of the VT must be in the HP agreement you signed.

to answer your original question, under the terms of vt, no you are not entitled to the auction proceeds, they compensate the lender

for their 50%of the agreement

 

SAR is a necessity, and lets see the original agreement minus pers details please

not a good idea to be conversing with a DCA on the phone.

 

 

they are NOT bailiffs

and have

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS

 

 

writing only

 

 

put the phone down.

 

 

always force a papertrail.

Hi

 

This is a little confusing. Has there ever been a county court judgement on this account or has there ever been arrears which have caused the account to default ?

 

Have they ever confirmed in writing that this vehicle was taken as the result of a voluntary termination rather than a voluntary surrender.

 

In either case there would have to be a judgement before they could legally enforce the debt, but the sums due would be different

Basically there are two ways of terminating a hire purchase agreement before the term has elapsed.

One is via voluntary surrender. This is where the car is returned and sold at auction, the sum raised at auction is subtracted from the balance due on the contract plus any default charges, the balance (if any) is then returned to the hirer

 

The other is by voluntary termination under section 99-100 of the CCA, this can be done at any time before the full amount under the agreement is paid.

There will be a figure on the agreement which gives the sum(one half of the total amount payable) which must be paid in order for the hirer to walk away with nothing further to pay, however he looses entitlement to any funds raised by sale of the car.

 

The first method of applying payments the one used if the vehicle is terminated on default(after the issuance of a default notice).

 

If the agreement has been previously terminated because of a default or missing payments , but he lender has agreed to let the hirer continue with the agreement, a VT cannot be made, the account has already been terminated.

 

Collecting sums still due under a contract terminated by either method will require a court order.

Yes that is why I posted the explanation re. the difference, obviously either not read or not understood.

having looked at the bare facts that have been given more closely

it would seem that BHF have treated this as a vt

half the agreement £4611.22

less payments made £2859.89

less deposit paid £595.15

leaves total to be paid to complete vt £1155.28

add the £25 repo fee, plus one late charge of £25, would leave a balance payable of £1205

mackh chasing for £1203 so pretty close.

 

had it been treated as a vs they would be chasing £3946 approx

from what I can read of the part agreement as posted up

Does the VS value include any credit for the car, or early settlement ?
