    • god wherever did you get that wild idea from? debt in the UK is not a crime, debt is a civil matter, and most certainly no-one can ever 'raid' anything within/outwith this country. dx  
    • next time dont waste money on them in law you only have to prove you sent a letter. use a 2nd class stamp and get free proof of posting from any PO counter dx  
    • His final  sentence in the email to notify me of any issues states the following: this was 2 days after final payment was made in full 20th May "I have had to call in another builder to start work on the room next week as it’s made me very depressed."
    • OK So I have now got the claim form, I had it emailed to me and also got another passcode to go onto the portal I have confirmation that the extension of time the following in email from mcol :  "also discussed, your response deadline date has been extended to 4pm on the 23rd of July 2024."     The claim itself is quite simplistic and a distortion of the truth He is trying to say that I agreed for him to carry out additional works and that I was anxious, which couldnt be further from the truth.My anxiety was in raltion to my prostate cancer resuts My emails do have an element of acceptance that there are snags to be carried out,not for wholesale change of the project He was at home every day and we had conversations daily about the room and the procedures involved He had another builder lined up the same day as completing the project He did not give me opportunity to discuss or rectify any snagging    why pay me in full if he was unhappy??   Onlymeagain claim form.pdf

    • 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 Sent my car back on VT and received a bill for excess mileage,

 

 

however it is not clear in my contract if I pay the charge as it says in termination your rights

if you have paid half the value of the agreement and the car condition is acceptable the answer is yes and yes.

I have heard that the phrase in termination my rights quote "you will have nothing else to pay".

 

Does anybody have dealings with this I have started proceedings with the Onbudsman but heard this is probably not the best way.

 

I have heard of people getting the charge removed and invoices being cancelled

 

Any help would be appreciated

Hi

 

 

Its PCP and with Mercedes Finance my view is that in 2 locations on VT section in contract say pay half value and return in good condition and I :you have nothing else to pay"

I believe that I have an older contract going off what Mercedes tell me? would like to compare with contract from 2012 August just to check.

Section 99 of the Consumer Credit Act gives the debtor the right to terminate a hire purchase agreement,

simply by giving written notice of termination.

.

The right to terminate applies at any time before the final payment becomes due, unless the creditor has already terminated.

.

contrary to the line taken by many finance companies,

.

the debtor need not have paid half the total amount payable,

.

and nor do they have to pay any arrears,

.

before exercising the right to terminate.

.

Sections 99 and 100 set out the debtor's liability on voluntary termination. The sections are complex,

.

but their main effect can be summarised in brief as follows.

.

.If the sum of payments made and arrears before termination exceeds 50% of the total price,

than the debtor is only liable to pay the arrears.

.

Otherwise, the debtor is liable to pay half the total price, less any payments already made.

.

so the debtor can terminate at any time if he has reached the 50 % mark

.

the debtor can terminate at any time before the 50 % mark but would be liable for payments still to reach the 50 % mark,

.

does not matter if the account is in arrears at the time or request to do a voluntary termination.

.

you need to specifically nail them down that this is a VT and NOT a VS [volutary surrender].

dont get caught out!!

take extensive photos of the car inside and out

and underneath and in the engine compartment ALWAYS.

if they try and charge a repo fee or collection fee they cannot:

173 Contracting-out forbidden.

(1)A term contained in a regulated agreement or linked transaction, or in any other agreement relating to an actual or prospective regulated agreement or linked transaction, is void if, and to the extent that, it is inconsistent with a provision for the protection of the debtor or hirer or his relative or any surety contained in this Act or in any regulation made under this Act.

This term is covered by the above section of the CCA 1974 in that it breaches this:

99 Right to terminate hire-purchase etc. agreements.

(1)At any time before the final payment by the debtor under a regulated hire-purchase or regulated conditional sale agreement falls due, the debtor shall be entitled to terminate the agreement by giving notice to any person entitled or authorised to receive the sums payable under the agreement

In other words nothing can stop you voluntarily terminating.

The only charges you must pay are the ones contained in the legislation and itemised in section 101, the charge mentioned is levied after the agrement is terminated and is void in any case. All it means is that no one will collect the terminated car(their car), well that is ther problem it is no longer yours , you attachment to the car ha been terminated.

.

.

.

..............example letter..ADAPT TO SUIT.............

.

You must vt under s99/100 cca1974. do not sign any of their forms, or agree to pay anything.

.

The car has just to be in reasonable condition for its age.

If you have paid in excess of 50%,

with no arrears there will be nothing to pay.

.

Send them the following letter,

they MUST action your request,

you should endeavour to be present at the vehicle inspection---

.

VOLUNTARY TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT UNDER S99/100 CCA 1974

.

Account No: (xxxxxxx)

.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to notify you that I am exercising my right to terminate the above Agreement

under Section 99 of the consumer credit act1974.

.

You will understand that the aforementioned section permits the debtor to terminate the agreement

at any time before the last payment is due.

.

There is no restriction regarding the exercising this statutory right,

particularly none in respect of any perceived arrears or monies due on termination

.

I understand that I shall be liable to you for the amount calculated under the formula in Section 100

of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

.

**As I have/have not paid more than the amount calculated under the formula in Section 100 the amount due is £XXXX/zero.

.

The above agreement will be terminated 14 days from the date of this notice.

.

Please send me details of how the vehicle can be returned to you.

.

You will be aware that statute prevents you from levying a charge for the recovery of this vehicle;

guidelines also state that if you require me to deliver this vehicle

it must be no more than a short (reasonable distance) from my registered address.

.

Please confirm receipt of this request in writing within 7 days of receipt.

.

-Yours etc...

No better advice than what Dx put.

 

if you are under your mileage for the total year, then theyre just trying to get money from you.

 

Follow the VT advice and dont let them try and bluff money from you that theyre not entitled to.

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..

Hi

Added penalties excess mileage is on the agreement but in termination your rights it states

(if you have paid 50% and the car is returned in reasonable condition you will not have to pay anymore)

 

Also in termination by you it says which sections of the contract apply

 

these state that I have to have paid at least 50% of the agreement in 1 section

and the other section states

as long as the car is returned in reasonable condition that is all I would need to pay

and it refers to another section reasonable care,

this section does not mention mileage at all.

 

in section 12 last page last paragraph

 

smallest print that even on earlier surrender excess mileage would be due?

 

Help please as I have just received county court letter

Claimant Mercesdes benz financial services (UK) limited C90 3484621

 

Issue date 24-01-17

 

POC

1. by agreement in writing on 13-08-2012 the claimant agreed to hire a vehicle to the defendant for an agreed term in return for a monthly fee (the agreement)

 

the defendant has returned the vehicle to the claimant under the terms of the agreement

 

the defendant agreed to pay any costs and or charges associated with the vehicle damage, excess mileage and or rental.

these sums are now due and payable.

 

In my opinion my defence should be as follows

 

In the contract in termination your rights it states that as long as the vehicle is returned in reasonable condition QUOTE You will not have to pay anymore.

 

also in termination by you it states as long as you have paid 50% of the agreed sum and the car is returned in reasonable condition and section 10.1.4 this section only says vehicle condition and cost if not in good condition.
