    • 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.

Hi

My ex partner and I had a joint loan for £3000,

when we split up she decided to reduce our payments which were below the required amount.

 

 

The Clydesdale Bank agreed this.

I have always paid my share,

 

 

I have just recently found out she stopped paying,

then restarted but paying less than we had agreed.

 

 

I have just had a letter from a company called Cabot saying they are now responsible for the debt.

They are being all nice saying they are happy for me to continue paying the agreed amount and I should set up a direct debit to them.

 

 

read a lot of stuff on here I am sure they won't continue to be 'nice' I have already had 4 letters in 5 days!

 

 

Where do I stand,

I can't afford to pay more,

I would prefer to keep dealing with the Clydesdale but this now seems impossible.

 

 

Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

Hi dx, thank you for replying.

 

 

The loan was taken out in 2014 for just over £3000.

 

 

The letter from the Clydesdale does in fact state they have transferred ownership to Cabot.

I have never intended to not pay and have been dutifully paying Clydesdale my half of the agreed amount.

 

 

My credit rating has obviously taken a nosedive but unfortunately having been left with a load of my ex's debt I have been in no position to repay the original repayment amount.

 

 

I can't figure why the Clydesdale would sell it, and how do I find out if they are chasing my ex too?

Interestingly, Cabots figure of outstanding amount is less than the Clydesdale (only by a couple of hundred).

 

Should I start paying Cabot the amount I agreed with the Bank and is it ok for me to cancel the S/O i was paying the Clydesdale with? I am grateful for your help.

Send the CCA request to cabot as advised and cancel the S/O to Clydesdale, they no longer own the debt and shouldnt expect payment.

Cabot wont care which one of you is paying as long as the paymemts are made, the CCA request, if nothing else, will buy you a little time until they produce the agreement and maybe alot of time if they dont!

Hi DX

I sent the CCA request as you advised

 

Cabot replied really quickly stating they couldn't find my account using the reference number I supplied (I took it from their original letter).

 

I re submitted the request with a photocopy of their original letter and suggested that they were using delaying tactics as they didn't have the appropriate paperwork.

 

12 working days have passed (plus I allowed 3 days for the post!) and I've heard nothing.

 

What do I do next?

 

Interestingly when they wrote back to me it came from a different address but I have sent both my letters to the address on their original correspondence.

Hi DX

Sorry, me again!

 

I have had another demand from Cabot (nice touch for Christmas), asking for a ridiculous amount of 'arrears'.

 

They have still not made any mention of my CCA request

(I'm presuming their answer would be they never received the second request?).

 

I didn't send it recorded but have proof of posting,

 

should I write back referring them to my request?

 

They sent back the first request and postal order saying they couldn't trace the account.
