    • 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.

I received a ccj through the post which looked like it had originally been sent to my old address then amended and sent to my current address.

I checked my credit report and turns out I have 3 at old addresses.

I missed the 30 day deadline to pay them due to going to the wrong addresses but don’t have the money to pay them anyway.

 

They are

 

1. Lowell’s £241 for a H&M account

2. Lowell’s £549 for a credit card

3. BW legal £414 pay day loan -i took out for partner but he never paid

 

they we’re all due to be statute barred this year accord to my credit report.

 

ive lived at my current address 18 months and on the electoral roll since day one.

Two ccjs went to my last registered address which I left in 2016 and one went to the address before that which I left in 2012.

 

2016 I moved into a woman’s refuge due to domestic abuse inc financial abuse where my partner would give me “pocket money” and clearly hid letters about debts as he’d told me he’d paid them! He even lied to hmrc about his income causing an over payment that I now have to pay back!

 

I haven’t worked since 2013 as had to stay home with the kids while he worked and since being on my own childcare proved to expensive to go back to work.

I called step change and they’ve said to offer a token £1 payment using form N245 as my income is -£250 a month so I don’t have the money to pay the ccjs.

 

i was thinking a DRO might be better as I have other debts on my credit file too including another pay day loan coming up for statute barred so they’re likely to apply for another ccj.

 

i really don’t want bailiffs turning up

i'm interested in the one where you say the address was amended, what was amended the address on the judgement after they got it, expand please.

 

I think you need to be clear on what a bailiffs can actually do on a consumer credit debt.

the truth being very little if you ignore them.

you don't have to even engage with them

there is most certainly no right of forced entry on CCJ's so forget about losing your kids toys like you feared in your other thread.

 

not the best resolution p'haps.

but dont go thinking every CCJ gets bailiffs involved

its only if the claimant goes back and asks for them to be involved

 

until or unless any of the claimants chase you i'd let things run.

 

now the DRO

its never a good idea to turn unsecured consumer credit debts into something more formal.

you indicate you have other debts too.

you also indicate you have numerous PDL's

I would be starting an irresponsible lending claim against EACH PDL lender inc the one with the CCJ.

 

if you credit rating was already shot [sounds like it] with numerous default and other PDL's you could be in for a good wipeout of them and poss money to you pocket

I received a letter from bw legal saying a ccj had been issued against me and they’d included the form.

it was a county court form and my old address was on the left crossed out in red pen and my new address on the right in the second defendant box.

It had a red date stamp on the bottom so I guess they sent it back to the courts and got it amended maybe??

However I ignored it cause it came from bw legal and not the courts

 

Thought I’d be proactive and find out when I last paid vanquis but they said they don’t hold any information as it was all passed to Lowell in 2013.

well you cold scan it up to PDF read upload

then we can see it and try like you to work things out.

 

do you remember when you took this vanquis card out?

nothing on you credit file?

 

is there a possibility that you hadn't paid it for 6yrs before they got the CCJ?

just because it was poss SB'd that wouldnt stop them from getting a backdoor CCJ as no human ever checks anything

Yes. Had a letter saying that I had to pay £50 a month starting January I think and then another letter saying I’d missed the payments.

 

I also took my brothers advice to write to the court asking for the judgement to be set aside. He’s successfully done it before but not even sure what grounds he wanted me to argue it on. But that just resulted in the court telling me to fill out a form and submit it which I’ve not done after reading more about it on this forum

You dont have a valid reason to set a side...unless you can prove they had your new address.....so follow the advice you have already been given by Stepchange...

 

" I called step change and they’ve said to offer a token £1 payment using form N245 as my income is -£250 a month so I don’t have the money to pay the ccjs."

So does that mean i’ll Have them forever then? I assume ccjs drop off 6 years after cleared?

 

Also what about the other two ccjs?

 

Doesn’t the fact that I’m on the electoral roll count or do I have to notify them personally of a change of address?

Correct it does fall off the Credit Files....but its still enforceable and collectable....unless you have paid it in full.

 

The other CCJs are they chasing...have they wrote to you ?

 

Its your responsibility to update all creditors with a COA

They’re not chasing me at this address but did write to me here so don’t know why the ccjs went to old addresses unless they were fishing to see if I was really here and the ccj has to go to the address they have in record.

 

So to clarify the ccjs fall off automatically after 6 years whether cleared or not? Or only if cleared?

 

What about what dx100uk said about irresponsible lending?

The CCJs will show on your CRAs for a period of 6 years..like normal defaults.....It will appear on the CCJs Register for 6 years...whether paid or not paid.

 

Even when they fall off it does not stop the threat of Bailiffs ...they can try to enforce after 6 years.

 

Creditors are allowed to serve a court claim at the last know previous address unless you have written proof that you have updated the address and they have since written to you at the new address before the claim was made.

 

If you wish to consider a ILC that must be made to the original creditor and has no connection to the CCJs

We could do with some help from you.

So if they’ve written to me at my current address just before the claim but I’ve not updated them I can’t apply for it to be set aside cause I didn’t formally update them?

 

Also if I do contact them is there a chance they can reissue the ccj so I get the 31 days to pay like bw legal did?

 

I’m not really sure what to do about those two.

 

this also brings me back to my original question about a DRO cause I don’t want to be chased for the rest of my life. 3 debts are already formalised I only have 2 more defaults after them and 1 I don’t have a chance in hell of ever paying

I’m not really sure what to do about those two.Dont do anything subject to the date of the CCJs..unless they contact you

DROs are an option providing you full fill the qualifying criteria....

 

What are the qualifying criteria for a Debt Relief Order

 

You must have no more than £50 left over each month after paying your household bills

You can’t own a vehicle that’s worth more than £1,000 – though vehicles adapted to help you with a physical disability are exempt from this cap

You must not be subject to any current bankruptcy or IVA proceedings or have had a DRO approved in the last six years

You can’t be a homeowner

You live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland

Your current qualifying debt balances must not total more than £20,000

You can’t own assets worth more than £1,000

You must have lived or run a business in England, Wales or Northern Ireland for the last three years

An official receiver will be assigned to deal with your DRO application. The official receiver can investigate your application and reject it if you have:

 

Given away a property or sold it for less than it’s worth in the last two years

Favoured any of your creditors by paying one more than others in the last two years

If you apply for a debt relief order (DRO) it’s an offence to mislead the official receiver about your situation.

We could do with some help from you.

Well I personally would hold fire for now and do nothing with regards to the other 2 CCjs unless they make contact...once over 6 years and providing you have not made any payment to the CCJ the Judgment claimant must seek permission to enforce the judgment (IE Instruct Bailiffs)

 

In regards to the one we are discussing here (2018)...until you actually receive notification that they have applied for a Warrant..do nothing..but if they do then you must submit an N245 and get a regular minimal payment going on a legal footing through the court.

In my experience it's completely random. One CCJ I received in December 2012, I ignored the You must pay us 50ppm letter, and it dropped of my CRA file acouple of months ago with no attempt to enforce it. Another one I had from Lowell, it took them 2 years to contact me threatening enforcement, and the last one was immediate.

 

It's definitely the best advice to sit tight and wait for them to contact you.
