    • 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.

As suggested if you can give the more info as above there are loads of people who can give excellent advice here.  Look at this below

 

Stopping enforcement

You can apply to the court that made the CCO using a Form N244 to set aside the order.

Alternatively, apply to vary the CCO and include a completed Form N245 Income and Expenditure and a to vary the CCO into an Income Contribution Order and you can pay in affordable installments.

The court fee for an N244 is £255. If you are on a low income, claim court fee remission online and put the application reference number on your form N244.

You don't need to write a letter or contact the bailiff company.

 

Your grounds can be

 prescribed benefit

Your were not means tested before the order was made

You have had a change of circumstances

You are on a low income under £12000 a year

Your total assets are under £30,000

You were convicted in a magistrates' court, and not a court court.

You were given notice of the order after 21 days from the date of the order - preventing an appeal.

You were not given a notice at all, for example, it was posted to a previous address

The order was made more than 6 years ago - Section 9 of the Limitation Act 1980
 
I might also suggest, that your wife's disability, backed up with Consultant's doctor's notes etc, will kill this one dead in the water. Also read below
 

Bailiff company Rossendales Ltd bid on on the government contract for the enforcement of CCO's, but it's work came with very limited success.

 

The problem faced by bailiffs is a combination of the practicality of asking debtors from low-income backgrounds to give tens of thousands of pounds at the doorstep, and debtors not having movable goods or vehicles of such high value.

 

There are no rules limiting the rise in the value of legal costs ordered against people for legal representation fees, or state that the cost of solicitors fees must be proportionate to the cause of action.

 

As a result, costs orders for solicitors fees against people have become hyperinflated. This is due to the person owing having no prospect of ever paying, or they divert income or assets elsewhere, causing the legal profession to increase fees further to offset the risk of losing a share of costs orders against debtors that cannot pay.

 

Debtors cannot go to prison or be "arrested" for non-payment of a CCO.

The liability dies after six years following the date of the order.

The solicitor is still paid, but from public funds and only at rates set by the government.

We could do with some help from you.

Well obviously you cant......

When all this started I had to supply details of my income and my wife's income and savings. 

So I suppose it includes my wife's too. 

 

Personally if I sold all I own it would amount to £5k.

I don't own a car. 

No fancy stuff. 

Nothing. 

Can they force us to sell our retirement apartment. 

Do I need to apply for a council property. 

I am falling apart here.

They obviously ignored it then. Be sure to also note that you are in a high risk Covid group (65 plus) and you certainly won’t be receiving any Doorstep visitors thanks.

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...

Listen to all the advice given OP. Did you read the link that I posted. The one that said there is no way of forcing you to pay and that they send these ridiculous hyper inflated fees in the hope that some mug will get scared and cough up because they know there is zero that they can do.
 

Did you read the bit about low incomes?

 

You ask for a professional To ‘sort this out ‘ That person who knows this inside out is @dx100uk. He’s seen your letters, and can tell they they are just a load of bluster.

 

All of our advice fits in pretty well doesn’t it? In other words you really have nothing to worry about.

Capital assessments are based on the:

 

amount or value of the asset at the time of the application

outcome of checks carried out to protect against fraud

As with income assessments the partner's share of the equity is included in these calculations - unless there is contrary interest.

Just found the above in the law society website. 

So am I screwed. 

So confused.

And to look at the bigger picture . What judge or magistrate or anyone in authority is going to side with a bottom feeding DCA and force a vulnerable couple with no money into the streets at any time, let alone in the worst economic and public health crisis in living memory.

 

Read the other threads here, do as they did. Try to get your money back from Marstons. They don’t deserve a penny from you.
