    • Done! Thanks again. Will update the thread accordingly.
    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • 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

 

I'm wanting to get information from Blemain with regard to my loan.

It's due to finish later this year and they claim the current balance is approx £4.5K which won't be cleared by the payments!

 

I'm going to send a SAR but I'm not sure which template to use from the library.

There's

Full Subject Access Request

or

Debt or DCA Subject Access Request

 

I was going to use the "Full" one, but then the "Debt" one looks better as it specifically mentions insurance and additional charges.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Hi

 

I'd come to the end of my loan period with Blemain and they reckon I still owe them over £7000!!

I rang them and it seems the balance is made up of a charge (house insurance) that was added at the start of the loan and it's been accruing interest all these years.

 

I can't remember agreeing to this and I've always had my own house insurance and wouldn't have taken out any through them as it would have probably been a silly price.

 

All this happened last year and I've kind of buried my head in the sand, and I received a letter last week saying they are still adding charges on every month, and my wife is getting stressed that I'm not dealing with it.

 

I previously did a SAR, but can't find the documents they sent.Can I do another SAR?

 

I'm pretty sure the documents didn't include anything about house insurance being added, I presume they should be able to produce it?

 

 

Thanks.

I've been through other threads on here and it looks like I should to a SAR to Blemain/Together, is this the right thing to do?

I'm pretty sure it didn't list it as a seperate item, from what I remember from the SAR I did, the charge was added in the first year of the loan

 

Yes I did get the SAR, but can't find it now :(

Then it would be showing in the outstanding balance throughout the term/statements and listed as such...it cant suddenly appear at the end of the term.

 

Did you receive annual statements and renewals notification for this insurance throughout the term of the loan ?

 

Who is the company providing cover ?

 

Have you checked with them to see if Blemain have taken cover in connection with your loan ?

Hi

 

Got the SAR back.

 

The only documents that refers to the insurance

 

a - The account statement that lists all transactions for the whole loan

 

b - A kind of account log (that lists everything associated with the account, i.e. letters, phone calls etc).

 

In it there are 2 enties saying a letter

"-- BUILDING INSURANCE LETTER 1 SENT"

and "-- NO RESPSONE TO LETTER 1 - LETTER 2 SENT CHARGE £xxx

 

I've received the SAR from Blemain.

 

The insurance premium is referenced in 2 docouments

 

1 - A complete account statement (i.e. over the whole life of the loan).

 

2 - A kind of account log (list phone calls, letters, charges applied etc)

 

On the 2nd document here there's 2 entries for a letter being sent for buildings insurance, which I never got.

e.g. "-- BUILDINGS INSURANCE LETTER 1 SENT"

 

There's then an entry saying "-- PLACED ON BLOCK POLICY ON xx/xx/xxxx for £xxx - PREMIUM = £xxx INC £xxx ADMIN"

 

There's no document showing the insurance or which company it was taken out with.

 

Then 1 year after I must have got a letter about the insurance as I sent them my own policy.

 

They never asked for any insurance documents in the following years of the policy.

 

------

 

I've done through the documents and these are the charges/payments I'm not sure about

 

Buildings Insurance

Broker Fee

Legal and Doc fees

PPP Insurance (which was only valid for 3 years).

Charges for letters

Charges for phone calls

Settlement Quote charge

 

What's the next step forward? (they keep adding on interest charges)

 

They also claim in the SAR response cover letter they only started to save outbound correspondece in 2011, so letters before this may have not been provided.

 

How convinient :frusty:

Yes, got a SAR/GDPR request back from my insurer at the time and it shows there was a policy in place on the date Blemain added their insurance, and had been in place for the previous 5 months (and the previous years).

 

 

Broker Fee - fair game no

Ah well!

 

 

Legal and Doc fee - at what stage were these charged?

This were charged at the start loan.

 

 

PPP Insurance (which was only valid for 3 years). - yes get reclaiming. https://cse.google.co.uk/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:6449422593&ie=UTF-8&q=blemain+PPP+Insurance +&sa=Search+CAG

I'm not sure which of the 4 spreadsheets from here I should use to deal with the interest part of it (not the 8% simple interest bit)

Blemain were charging 9.8% and then 10.3% monthly on the total balance, am I allowed to claim this extra interest they have charged?

 

 

Charges for letters - yes get reclaiming

Charges for phone calls - yes get reclaiming

Settlement Quote charge - yes get reclaiming

 

 

I'm guessing they will have charged interest on these as well which spreadsheet should I use calculate? :???:

 

Can I then charge 8% simple interest on top of all this?

 

Thanks.

Legal/docs then no

 

You use the foscisheet at their int rate

If the loan is still running. You cant claim stat 8%

Here are the files I've created.

 

I've done 2 are there are different interest rates. The 2nd one has the values for the PPI and others to calculate the interest but they're not being included in the total charges.

 

Is this the correct way to handle the two different rates? The rate changed on 29/07/2007

 

Should I put the buildings insurance charges in as well?

 

Thanks.

Good idea, it comes out at 10.05% which I'm going to round up to 10.1% as the lower rate was in place for 273 days and the higher rate for 4126 days! (I'm a kind person :smile:)

 

Can I put the house insurance on the same document?

 

Thanks.

house ins?

you mean contents or building

or they made you have Both?

 

you don't HAVE to have contents ins to get a mortgage

the only thing legally that must be in place is Building ins.

 

lets just say this

you cant lump everything in ONE claim on ONE spreadsheet ...no.

 

charges [arrears/letter/failed dd/ phone call/debt management/its raining today FIXED sum PENALY fees will be ONE Claim.

 

Building ins will be a sep claim and sheet

 

contents ...sep claim sep sheet.

 

just looked at your sheets is PPP PPI?

the PPP you cant just put in ONE lump sum.

its a portion of your monthly repayment.

then you MUST fill in the statint sheet as directed by that link I sent

and do that calculation

 

PPI was a % of EACH MONTHS payment.

you must enter that % on the date each month you paid it.

 

FOSCISHEET is ok for fixed sum penalty charges only.

 

is this mortgage still running?

Yes the mortgage is still running, though I'm not making any payments and they are still adding interest on every month.

 

Thanks for being patient, I'll do the spreadsheets tonight

 

Just to confirm my maths, the total of all upfront charges was (these were Broker Fee, Legal Docs, money to me) = £11788

PPP Insurance = £1739

 

So total loan = £13527

 

PPI % of total loan = (1739 / 13527) * 100 = 12.86%

 

Monthly payment = £177.27

 

So every month I can claim 12.86% of £177.27 which = £22.79

 

and I claim £22.79 on the stat int spreadsheet for each payment I made?

Hi

 

I sent off the 3 letters for PPI, Buildings Insurance and Charges.

 

They've come back saying that as the loan was sold via a broker any PPI mis-selling should be directed to them and not Together.

The broker is no longer trading (looks like they were disolved in 2009).

 

They suggest I contact the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, is this the only way forward?

 

Thanks.

Hi, I've had a response from Together about the charges and the buildings insurance.

 

Is it best to create another thread for one of them as they were sent as separate claims?

 

Thanks.
