    • Good Evening, I've got a fairly simple question but I'll provide some context incase needed. I've pursued a company that has operations in england despite them having no official office anywhere. I've managed to find a site they operate from and the papers there have been defended so I know they operate there. They've filed a defence which is honestly the worst defence ever, and despite being required to provide their witness evidence, they have not and have completely ignored the courts and my request for copies of it. I'm therefore considering applying to strike out their defence on the grounds the defence was rubbish and that they haven't provided any evidence for the trial. However, it has a trial date set for end of june, and a civil application wouldn't get heard until a week before then, so hardly worth it. However, my local court is very good at dealing with paper applications (i.e ones that don't need hearings, and frankly I think they are literally like 1-2 days from when you submit it to when a Judge sees it. I'm wondering if I can apply to strikeout a defence without a hearing OR whether a hearing is required for a strikeout application.   Thanks
    • I have just opened another bank acc with lloyds (i have a few already) After doing some research they may have some relation to tsb or be apart of the same group will this cause me issue if my salary is paid into my lloyds account? Also, if the debts do go into default and nothing is paid then after 6 years it all goes away? As the DCAs cannot do anything? I do want to start paying in like 3/4 months or do you advise I leave it if it goes into default? again sorry for all the questions, i am just processing everything

    • 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.

drydensfairfax chasing for Santander on a joint loan from 2008..i've paid my half already!!

I will start with possibly the easiest question first

- I got a letter from drydensfairfax regarding an unsecured loan I still owe money on, this goes back to 2008, I think.

 

I have paid half of the original loan.

Former partner is on the loan too.

 

I was paying it back to avoid trouble, as you do.

I then had two companies chasing me at the same time, Moorcroft and someone else.

Naïve, I rang Santander who said they would clarify.

 

Then ex put the loan into dispute, for his half, so naturally, I wasn't able to pay.

The dispute was settled not in his favour and I waited for instructions, from Santander on who to pay.

 

So, the letter has arrived, telling me "not to underestimate the seriousness of this matter" and to contact them by 16th to discuss repayment.

The letter states that they are acting on behalf of their client, Santander.

 

I realise the dates are missing on this, as an initial query,

my first question is who owns the debt, the letter seems to imply that Santander does, and they are just collecting for them?

 

Can you please help me get mental clarity?

 

thank you xxx

yes you [possibly] pay but ONLY deal with Santander

 

a dca or their pet solicitors have zero legal powers

and

are NOT bailiffs

 

might also be better to stay off the phone too.

have you got your credit file?

does this debt show?

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...

Thank you for the replies.

 

I actually don't know when the last payment was, because of the confusion with the two different companies chasing me.

 

I could phone Santander as asked, but I don't know if that is wise.

 

Just to check, DF haven't bought this debt, they are just doing the "admin" for Santander.

I'm confused.

 

Santander wrote to me and advised me all dealings should be thorough DF, and their letter has a smaller amount on it than the DF's.

 

DF also sent a letter to my former partner to this address, he has never actually lived here, and certainly didn't mount his rear guard action from this address so why did Santander not give DF his address?

 

hi - no, I haven't got my credit file - should I get it before acting?

payments would have gone to the fleecers 'client' that would be Santander..

it might well pay you to get your credit file yes

it might fill in the blank

 

roughly when did you last pay anything to anyone regarding this>?

 

just one point to bear-in-mind, the debt was joint and several

which means sadly you are responsible, as is the ex equally, for the full balance.

Thank you. Just Noddled it, will go though it.

Yes, I do know I'm liable, and I was paying it off, until the muddle from Santander's end, then the attempt by the ex to get off the agreement.

Now I'm just trying to understand what has happened, who I am dealing with, and what the best course of action.

 

I am going to read the file, and then I can post some facts.

 

Just one q in advance,

can I ask Santander to pay them back directly?

Just can't imagine them saying yes.?

always only pay the OWNER listed on your CRA file.

 

find that last payment date.

 

pers i'd send satans bank a CCA request

put them to strict proof they hold enforceable paperwork, for 2008 that might not be so.

 

you are quite safe on ANY DEBT, to totally ignore everyone bar the OWNER of a debt.

I got into Noddle, and according to their charts, which are visual, I defaulted in 2012. No more information there. I became too ill to work again in 2011, so that is when it went onto a reduced payment plan, because it became apparent that I wasn't going back to work. However, there isn't any information on when the last payment was made?
