    • 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 guys, would appreciate your help on this.

 

I currently have 25K of debt which is being administered with Payplan.

 

I defaulted on all accounts in 2012 during a separation.

 

Next year I should be receiving early inheritance to the value of 25/30K So I would love to clear all outstanding debts and be debt free. However I would like to apply for a mortgage with my new partner in a couple of years and understand that companies like Halifax look at your credit file in fine detail.

 

A - Should I clear all debts at 100% of value before the 6 year default period ends (a couple are offering settlement options now)

 

B - Wait until the 6 years are up? Then ask for settlement figures Full/Partial

 

I don't want to partially settle if it reflects badly with high street lenders in the future..

 

I really appreciate your help!

 

Thanks Roj.

Paying does not remove the default neither will paying improve your score

 

All defaulted debts vanish from your file on the defaults 6th birthday

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks for your reply!

 

So would you say I'm best to wait until 6 years and then see what happens?

 

Is this why now I'm being contacted to make early settlements?

No I suspect the discount letters are because there's PPI and penalty charges to reclaim?

 

And you've blindly been paying your debts to various DCA's and never once questioned the legality of the debts?

 

A dca is not a bailiff and has no legal powers whatsoever

 

Ever asked yourself why the original creditor sold a debt on and not crushed you in court???

 

I smell a few cash cow accounts here?

Ever sent any CCA requests before you blindly let payplan 'help' you??

Nope all the debts are mine and I had no PPI.

Well they might be yours and you might morally think you owe them..

But if you are paying any DCA's on these I'd question why the original creditors sold them on??

 

So who do you pay on each of the debts

And what type were they and who gave you the credit?

 

Payplan never check the legality of a debt

They will blindly pay any dca money as they get a cut of it

I don't doubt where my money is going as the statements reflect my payments 100% and Payplan only make their profits from IVA arrangement introductory fees.

 

My question really should read...

 

Partial or Full settlement - Before or after 6 years? Which will cause the least long term damage to my file.
