    • What happened BRS, contacted me after the accident and wanted to repair the damage i agreed i told them don't you want to go through the insurance they said no !. I said ok you can repair the damage, they asked me for more details about the damage so they could post the job on mybuilder.com. Anyway i emailed them giving them details of the damage and they never replied and ignored me.   It was only when i done a askmid and got the insurance details of 2 policies running on the vehicle and contacted Allianz the first on the list, BRS contacted me saying sorry for the lack of communication i went on holiday and left it with another staff member who failed to contact you.   BRS offered to say they want to repair the damage i said "NO" you messed me about the first time and now i want the security of going through the insurance.     I did give them one last opportunity under my terms i told them to pay ***** (fair amount)into my account and that would settle the matter and i would sign a agreement that the damages are paid in full. There reply was "that is not how we do things here and to contact their insurance" and conveniently never gave me the insurer responsible.
    • Check this and read about a Notice Of Correction     
    • There can be many reasons for dual insurance, depending on the use of the vehicle, certain hires, contracts etc, - nothing our of the ordinary there, just get the firm to confirm which one, as above don't let them dictate, they are in the wrong.    I would use you own insurers , and always advise this in cases where there is an impact claim for a  wall or similar.    Reason being is the third parties liability is for indemnity only which realistically is to pay for the damaged part of the wall and that only, they don't even have to pay for a builder, just the cost to repair, leaving you to deal and fend for yourself.    Your home  insurance cover will be on a new for old basis, giving further allowance if there any grey areas in regards to block matching, matching items (say for the welding) potential wear and tear contributing etc,    - more chance of getting more of the wall done than just the section that is damaged - plus it gives you a much better right of recourse if anything goes wrong, especially if you get a cash settlement or they use dodgy bob the builder.    Your insurer will want the third party details and will chase the responsible underwriter for their recovery, you may be able to piggy back on that. The reason for their hesitance in confirming about claiming back the XS will be due to the fact they are a home claims team and don't do an awful lot of recovery of losses compared to a motor claims department, and generally don't have as much experience on a day to day basis (or certainly not the front line staff). 
    • Give them time-amoebas are a little short on brain power to work sarcasm out. I wrote a letter similar to yours to Parking Eye and they wrote back to confirm they had received my appeal! 
    • considering it expires in Jan 2021 it looks like it has 2 insurances policies running on it at the same time, What a farce! each insurance company could blame one another this shouldn't be legal, but it looks like it is.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Sold but buyer wants money back.

Recommended Posts

My Son sold his moped back in mid April 2020.  

I helped him advertise it as  a non runner and this was specified in the ad.

 

It generated a lot of interest and promptly sold to a buyer who offered £120 less that original asking price.

They were great, turned up to trailer it away on time.

Did all the transfer of ownership on- line etc.

 

All happy until a day ago when I got a call to say they had tried to sell it on but there was no VRN or VIN anywhere on it so the buyer said my son sold a dodgy bike and they contacting the police to report it.

 

The bike was owned by my son for over 4 years, serviced regularly and MOTd up until Dec 2019.

It just lay about for almost a year so I asked him to fix or sell. 

 

I checked the last mot and there is a vin number showing on it.

My husband says they can't mot it otherwise. 

 

Am at a loss now as they have had the bike for 2 months.

Can someone advise me at all please?

Hi thanks for the reply.

I failed to mention it was sold with the v5 and last mot certificate service history,

but the buyers did it all on line outside whilst loading it onto their trailer.

 

They sent me proof that they had transferred ownership as my son hadn't heard from dvla to confirm. 

 

Will send them the vin.

As I read the problem, it is not about knowing what the VIN number is, but where it is because the actual VIN number cannot be found on the moped itself.

It should be stamped/engraved somewhere on the main frame, usually on the right side of the steering neck/head. but can be elsewhere.

Doubt you'd get a mot done as you did with the vin ground off.

So they need to look on relevant websites as its not just in one place on a bike.

 

Not your problem they cant sell it

And i doubt they have reported it to police as they'd know where its secretly marked.

 

Imho they are just trying to pull a fast one on you.

*You need to contact the DVLA and inform them of the date that the machine was sold and to whom. Unfortunately you have fallen foul of a chancer who no doubt said ' I will get the ownership changed over for you',  which is wrong. It is the responsibility of the registered owner to notify DVLA by sending the completed V5c to them. . I've given them the old log book with your details on so if theres issues they contact you.

As far as the sale of the vehicle is concerned, you do not need to worry, should you be contacted by the 'new' new owner, simpy refer them to the person that you/your son sold it to.

*You should notify DVLA by letter with free proof of posting.

ie the first person your son sold it to, not the people they sold it on to.

 

Sorry - it's probably obvious but I think it's sometimes easier to spell everything out to avoid confusion...

They sent me a screenshot of the new v5 in their name on 28 April, as my Son never received confirmation from DVLA . It shows clearly the new owner and address. But I will still do as advised thank you.
