    • 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 all

I had two ccj debts with Aktiv Kapital which have now both passed the 6 year point.

 

Both had interim charging orders on my house.

 

I paid off one of about £3k and had the charging order removed.

 

They very kindly also sent me a receipt to show that the other debt was clear (which it wasn't)

 

I forwarded that to the court and had the other charging order removed.

 

I moved house a year ago and I am still paying £20 a month to Aktiv Kapital.

 

Any thoughts about what they could do if I stop these monthly payments?

 

The CCJ wasn't really settled although they gave me a receipt and I moved house.

 

I am tempted to let sleeping dogs lie but equally I wouldn't mind asking for a refund on the £20 that I have paid for the last 12 months.

 

I haven't heard anything from them and they don't have my new address yet.

 

How clued up are they?

Hi

 

I would be grateful for advice -

 

I have two certificates of satisfaction for PRA debts.

 

One they have a record of and the other they claim not to.

 

When I recently tried to stop payments on the one they claim not to have a record of they asked for proof of payment ie bank statement.

 

I don't have that as I think that it was arranged by my ex wife and there is no way that I am going to her for anything.

 

Surely the court would have sent them a copy originally?

 

Where do I stand on this?

I think that they owe me about £600 since I should have stopped paying this.

 

Thanks

Well something must have been up as they gave a discount

And I assume HSBC sold the debts on

Rather than crush you in court themselves

Wonder why that was.....

Two HSBC overdrawn defaulted bank accounts there wasn't much to contest

 

The fact they were chock full of charges and prob unenforceable would have been a start

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..

A DCA is chasing me for a debt that the court shows as settled (I have cert of satisfaction) and they lifted an interim CO. This dates back to 2013.

 

They now say that they can't find that payment was made.

I can't prove that I did as I don't have records from them.

 

What do I do?

I sold the property with the original order and now live in a new mortgaged home with wife who didn't know me at the time of the original debt.

 

Can anyone recommend a good solicitor to sort them out for me?

 

Thanks

You don't need a Solicitor. Send them a copy of the cert of satisfaction as proof the debt was settled. By recorded delivery, with a covering letter and a copy of the letter they sent.

 

It is not your problem, if they can't find the payment.

We could do with some help from you.

then you should have been ignoring them since 2015.

 

 

why did you continue to pay them after 2015 when they sent you a receipt that it was already paid off?

Its threads like that make me sad. WE told the OP the best way to deal with it, but was sadly ignored. THe DCA then started fleecing the hell out of him, even affecting the OP's relationship :(
