    • just noticed that one of farages favorite poops was suggesting another stealth tax of 10 quid a month - possibly per person inc children ..   Minister proposed £10 monthly insurance-style patient charge to fund NHS dentists WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK ‘Working people can’t afford another Tory tax rise,’ says Labour’s Wes Streeting   “They are framing this as some kind of pre-payment or quid pro quo, but of course, we already pay for the NHS through income tax, and in general that is a much more equitable way of doing it.” The DHSC declined to comment
    • All righty, seems I know why it was so quiet, basically the case was in transfer. I just got a letter from my local county court stating that they will be now taking over from Nots (dated 28 May 2024, wow) But no other correspondence so far. Will keep you posted
    • Hey,  I've messaged my husband but he is not contactable while he is in work. As soon as he is on his way home I will find out which finance company we used. I'm so sorry, I just don't know.
    • Okay, I have read your claim form. A pity you didn't come to us earlier. You haven't pleaded any legal basis for your claim and you haven't cited the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act. How long have you been aware of this forum? We will have to bring that out later when you do your witness statement. Once again, do the reading very carefully. I suggest that you wait until Monday before coming back here and confirming that you have read everything. And in particular, as I have indicated, read the thread which I posted above very carefully and in particular we the details of the contractual terms which were discovered and get a copy for yourself. Post a link to them in this thread as well for other people to see. They are relying on the fact that you don't have a direct contract with them and they are referring to a contractual term which is apparently in the contract between them and Packlink which specifically excludes third parties. You will definitely want to see this. They have tried to rely on this before but they have never produced the contract. In your witness statement you will have to request that they produced the contract in court. In terms of the mediation, frankly we would have advised you to decline mediation. It's all done secretively. Nothing is ever revealed and of course they will try to get you to compromise on the amount of money you are claiming. We would strenuously suggest that you don't give up a single penny. Do the reading that I have suggested, find the details of the contract which I have told you about which accepts direct liability to you, the customer – and post it here.

    • 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,

 

 

Defence was filed on time, sorry didn't post it up but have been really ill after heart attack.

 

 

This is the defence provided.

 

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and

generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case

below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular

allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

1. Paragraph 1 is accepted insofar that a relationship did once

exist between the Defendant and Vodafone however, I cannot recall

this account (Agreement) The claimant has yet to disclose a copy

of the Account/Agreement mentioned in particulars of Claim.

 

 

2. Paragraph 2 is denied ,the Defendant has not been served with a

notice of termination and the claimant is put to strict proof

thereof.

 

 

3.Paragraph 3 is denied .The defendant is unaware of any legal

notice of assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to Law and

property Act 1925 Section 136(1).

 

4.Therefore the defendant denies owing any money to the Claimant

and the claimant is put to strict proof ,

 

Show how the Defendant has entered into an Agreement.

Show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for.

Show how the Claimant has legal right ,either under statue or

equity to issue a claim.

 

 

5.As per Civil

Procedurehttps://www.consumeractiongroup.co.u...ages/link3.gif

Rule 16.5(4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation

that the money is owed; having been provided with written requests

for information under CPR 31.14 and to date have failed to provide

any such documentation as detailed on the particulars of claim.

 

6.On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt,

it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to

contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

7.Notwithstanding the above should the alleged amount claimed

include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the entire

balance of the remaining contract. OFCOM guidance states that any

Early Termination Charge that is made up of the entire balance if

the remaining contract is unlikely to be fair as it fails to take

into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide

and pay for their service.

 

8.By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied

that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

 

 

Lowell replied to CPR letter saying as this is telecommunications matter it's not regulated by CCA 1974, Stated default notice does not apply as this is service agreement so no default issued, they say requested statements from original creditor and will contact when received.

 

 

They confirm that at no time has their client Lowell Portfolio ltd entered into any contract with me directly stating it was lawfully assigned and have requested copy of assignement, they acknowledge acknowledgement of service to defend.

 

 

Received a Notice of proposed Allocation to small claims track with a form N180 to fill in before 8th October 2018.

 

 

many thanks, this is making me bleeding ill.
