    • Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm afraid that this website is mainly bad news about companies so it's very refreshing and very decent for someone to come along and to give praise where praise is due. How about a link to their website?
    • Having a little additional think about this, I think that your interests are best protected in the following way: You inform the seller that you are obtaining the quotes which I have referred to above. Having received the quotes, you then inform them that you are proposing to have the work carried out at XXX garage and that you will expect that the seller will reimburse you for the costs and associated expenses. You can tell them though that you understand that they may want to control the work being done to the car and so you are willing to allow them to do it but as the fault has manifested itself at this point and that it is clear that the problem is their responsibility, if they wish to carry the work out themselves then they will have to organise the collection vehicle and the delivery of it to you once the work is completed. Of course this will be very expensive for them and they will either fail to respond or they will refuse. Whatever their reaction, you would then go on to say that as they have failed to respond/declined the invitation to carry out the repairs themselves, that you are now going to your preferred garage – one of the two quotations which you have supplied – and you will have the vehicle repaired there. You are giving them an opportunity to comment. I think that if you use this approach, then you will be able to demonstrate very clearly that they had a choice and therefore they will be unable to disassociate themselves from the repairs which are eventually carried out at your chosen repairer. Even though this exchange of correspondence may mean that it will take a week or so longer to have your repairs carried out, I think you should do this in order to protect yourself in the best way possible
    • Please name the dealer   I would start off by sending them a letter of rejection seeing as you are within the 30 days. This doesn't mean that you have to reject it but it reserves your position. Secondly, on the basis of what you say, I don't think that you need necessary to find the cheapest place. You should be looking at the best quality that you can find. I think the best thing to do would be to get to competing quotations for the work you propose to have carried out – and not necessarily at the cheapest place, but a couple of proper reputable garages – authorised for that kind of vehicle. Inform the dealer as to what you are doing and providing with copies of the estimates for the work before you put it in hand. Give them five days to object or to make other comments. Make it clear to them that once the work is carried out that you will be looking to them to reimburse you. Of course you are opening a can of worms here because if you get some further problems – more serious – you may find that the dealer is starting to say that because you have carried out your own work so your own repairer on the car, they cannot now say that any defects were inherent in the purchase – and that they may have been introduced by 1/3 party repairer. I'm afraid that you have certainly fallen into a trap of buying a car a long distance away from where you live. We find that people often tend to do that because they think the car they have found is the only one in the world for them. They forget to factor in the difficulties that they will be if there are defects – particularly if the car stopped altogether – the cost of transportation to the dealer, the cost of having to travel up and down the country to collect the car – and of course these difficulties could emerge several times through the initial years of your ownership of the vehicle if you are relying on your statutory rights and expect the dealer to meet those obligations. Furthermore, if you have to bring a court action against them you are now dealing with multijurisdictional claims – suing out of Scotland against the defendant in England and that adds to the complications. It's too late for you to do anything about this – unless you actually decide to reject the vehicle – but at the very least, other people who come across this thread may get some benefit from these comments. I think it's important for you to get the best quality repair you can and to make sure that the dealer is aware of what you are doing so that if later on they try to deny responsibility for further defects, that you will be able to show that they were fully appraised of what you are doing and they will have less room to manoeuvre themselves out of their statutory obligations. I'm afraid that purchasing a car from one dealer and then having it repaired by another service provider, brings into the same kinds of difficulties that somebody who purchases a central heating boiler from one supplier and then has it installed by a different supplier find themselves in. When things go wrong, the seller blames the installer. The installer blames the seller – and you, the customer, are piggy in the middle. Not a good place to be. I notice that you are doing things on the telephone. Big Fail! Read our customer services guide. In your situation you should be extremely careful to make sure that you have got a record of everything and a full paper trail
    • What information do DVLA need for a provisional licence ?   Think the ID issue needs to be looked at a bit more. Surely you have birth certificate, school information, Doctors records. School and Doctors should provide a letter to help with ID.                
    • Amex as with any creditor must help you the FOS should go with you and make them remove all interest charged from the very 1st time of asking for help. the FCA regulations actually almost dictate it, they most certainly clearly state that if the are FCA registered they must help.   it's very telling they have no marked your credit file....almost as if they know they are wrong. it's also telling that an irresponsible lending complaint might well be in order hear too, they can just keep upping the credit limit without checking you can pay. and ofcourse covid plays its part here and they've already admitted as they allowed payments holidays until october in line with the rest of the industry and they should be continuing that. you problem is you keep using the phone, no paperwork no record of things discussed. i'd get an SAR off to them. and get the comms/account log and all the statements from day one and go nail them.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi

My son has had a letter of Transfer of proceedings on a CCJ to our local court from Northampton.

This has been paid monthly since 2010 by Direct Debit to Brian Carter.

 

 

The letter does not mention him but Frederickson International Ltd as the 1st claimant, this was for a debt on an Egg card.

 

 

I realise he needs to get in touch with the court but is it permissible to cancel the Direct Debit that is going out to Carter on the first of each month?

 

 

The letter was dated 30th August 2016 and a payment was already paid on the 1st September.

 

Thank you in advance.

He's had purely the letter of transfer of proceedings but he does not want to pay to Brian Carter money he's clearly not entitled to. The CCJ was put in place in 2010 after my son informed him that the a debt management plan was in place and he had paid an initial payment. Obviously he does not want to get into any trouble with the court.

transfer of proceedings mean there is an active case

and its moving to your local court for allocation

 

 

I wonder if you mean change of sols

carter doesn't exist anymore and hasn't for many months.

 

 

lowells sols are taking all his cases over.

 

 

TBH i'm a bit confused here.

 

 

somethings not right.

The Letter is a notice of Transfer of Proceedings and info that the CCBC Sol is no longer acting,

there is nothing else on the letter but the claim number, the claimant ref, the defendant Ref and

"To all parties".

The number at the bottom of the letter is N271.

Also if Carter has not been acting for so long where has my son's money gone?

 

Also, an offer was made by Carter on 18/08/2012 to pay 60% but we did not have the £1420.42 that was required,

this was a reduction of £946.93 and since that time he has paid £770 so one would think that he shouldn't be expected to pay too much more.

something smells on this debt

why did he not defend it.

 

 

if theres a discount on offer

then you can bet your bottom dollar

theres more to be had by getting all the statements from the OC

and reclaiming.

 

 

not sure on that letter

it says what I suspected

a change of solicitors

but cant see why theres a notice of transfer

unless its a transfer of solicitors to Lowell solicitors

 

 

which I guess it is,

Sorry, what's the OC.

 

 

Have to say if it's Egg there's a fair chance there were lots of charges on it.

He didn't get a chance to defend it,

we were going to work with the DMP which he had other debts on after the breakup of his relationship

 

 

but before we knew it, it was presented to the court even though we replied in time.

 

 

We wrote to the court but we couldn't do anything about it.

If though a Direct Debit is being paid to someones bank account

how can it still be paid if someone else is acting.

Carter up to their usual tricks, as well as offering a discount? I bet you anything that debt is not enforceable and they know it. But youve become a cash cow because youve blindly paid it.

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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

FWIW carter is part of the Lowell group

so I doubt your payments have gone into thin air

but I've gotta admit I smell a cash cow here.

 

so you are saying you defended via MCOL

but didn't send in any defence in time

 

yes OC [original creditor] is EGG then

so SAR time

prob got PPI there to reclaim

I don't think my son would consider himself a cash cow exactly and for the most part my wife, his mum, has got whatever debt lessened that she could.

 

In fact she did defend one claim via MCOL for him and that was statute barred, so farewell to that.

 

With this one he received the court papers and she responded in good time but they had already put the claim into court and she was unable to get anywhere with her correspondence to the court.

 

We realise these debts are bought for much less than they actually are but once the courts have it, the fear of imprisonment takes hold.

 

The thing is we wouldn't know who to pay now, we have had no approach from any solicitor or DCA, and have cancelled the DD after talking to the local court.

 

Do we just wait?

Why should we approach them first?

Slightly confusing this thread.....pastamik when you state you have been making payments from 2010...was that of your decision ? not ordered by the court to or subject to a court claim ?

 

The N271 normally transfers a claim from Northampton to your local county court for allocation to track once a defence has been submitted.

 

Has a claim been recently issued...as I suspect that does not relate to 2010 or any court claim of that year ..but merely being pressured into paying a DCA blindly?

 

I think a few phone call are in order (the claim number should be on the N271) to clarify the status and why the the transfer if a claim has never been received.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Do as Andy advises

He is much better at legal than iever could be, but has spotted what I have...something's not right.

 

As for being imprisoned.. Not on consumer debt no never

So not sure where that notion has come from...

 

Cash cowing is not a derogatory term

More a state that the DCA spoofs you into

Esp the likes of Carter!!

 

I'd be sending the original creditor an sar

And i bet you've never once got a statement out of any DCA he is paying??

 

As for the present situation.. Ring the court and ask

 

Bottom line is always never forget..

A DCA or their fake/tame sols

Are not BAILIFFS

And have

No such legal powers

You and I have just the same powers

Can only get a CCJ on civil debts

Thsi is the history of it :-

October 2009 - DMP set up with Egg debt but different DCA

November passed to Carter so initial payment to set up placement on DMP

2010 No action on Egg debt with DMP simply being passed around

April 2010- received papers from Northampton court and given time to reply

Case already presented to Court and CCJ made out by court for £10 weekly on the first of month

Wrote to court to Say He'd replied in time therefore could it be overturned

Court said sorry but no

30/04/10 First payment made to Court Via Brain Carter

 

September 2016- letter dated 30th August received as previously stated.

It has a claim number , claimant reference, but no defendant reference no.

The Letter states :. To all Parties This claim has been transferred to the County Court at .......... as the CCBC Sol is no longer acting.

Rang Court 26/9 and was advised to cancel DD but given Fredericksons address to possibly ring them.

Many thanks ...okay so there is a CCJ in place from 2010..payments are set at £10 per month....so the above notice could either be purely to transfer it out of Northampton to your local court (this is quite normal and nothing to concern you).

It may be to change the judgment claimant/solicitor which involves no intervention from yourself.

 

As for the court telling you to stop payment...I am at a loss and do not understand why a court would advise you of that.

The idea to stop the DD was because Brian Carter would no longer be acting therefore the payment should not go to him (or them). The next payment would normally be going out on 1st October but to where? Who could I ring for the right info and how can I reinstate a DD if I do not know who I should pay.

So the court didnt tell you to stop payments...that was of your own volition ?

 

Who was Carter acting for....Who was/is the judgment claimant ?

Who I assume was acting for Lowells ?...as far as I am aware all payments to Frederickson/Carter were automatically transferred to Lowells Solicitors..I would simply visit the following Site and arrange a new payment method

 

https://www.fredpay.com/?Ref=FI_1

 

As for all payments made since 2010...as for a statement from Lowells so you can check the balance and make sure all your payments are accounted for.
