    • Hi Stormy   I do wish you good luck but I'd urge you not to get over-optimistic about a letter from your GP having any bearing on the outcome of this.  I do not share London1971's view that such a letter will assist you in defending the claim against you - unless you are suggesting that the diagnosis is so bad that you aren't functioning - in which case you probably ought not to be working.  Is your GP going to say that you can't be held liable for a breach of contract, but that you're perfectly OK to continue working and to make significant decisions in other areas of your life?  I don't know.   Also, I'm uncertain where the question of bullying and harassment first surfaced in this thread.  You engaged them on a NWNF basis to pursue a claim for you.  Apparently they contacted (or attempted to contact) you a lot - certainly more than you felt necessary or were comfortable with, and you ended up deciding to discontinue the case.  But were they harassing you?  Again, I simply don't know because I wasn't there - only you were.  Most people complain that they don't have enough contact from their solicitors, not that they are being harassed by being contacted too often.  [EDIT:  I also think most people would associate "harassment" with behaviour that is in some way harmful or damaging to the recipient, and not with a situation where the alleged harasser is trying to act in the other person's interest and to their benefit].    And I'm not sure where the bullying comes from?  They're suing you because they think you are in breach of contract and that you owe them the costs and expenses they've already incurred - and that they cannot now recover from the other party because you decided to discontinue the case.  I'm no particular supporter of law firms but, unlike some people, I don't have "anti-lawyer" as a default setting.  If they've genuinely incurred costs acting on your behalf and in your interests, then I think they've got a more than fair case to recover those costs.  Threatening to sue you or actually suing you isn't necessarily bullying.   I honestly think your best chance of success is questioning the level and extent of costs and expenses they claim to have incurred and try to reach a mutually acceptable settlement.   As I've said before, I'm not intending to be critical of you in any way and I'm really sorry that all this (the original accident, hassle with the lawyers and now them suing you) seems to have contributed to all the stress you have to bear.  I'm really just interested in ensuring that you can see this problem from all points of view and that you don't place too much reliance on an approach that I think has only very limited chances of success.  (But of course - as London1971 has pointed out - there's no harm in getting a GP's letter anyway AND preparing a legal defence like BankFodder is suggesting AND preparing to think about settling.  They aren't all mutually exclusive and you should keep as many irons in the fire as you can.  Use belt and braces and don't just rely on one).   Anyway.  Good luck.  I'm frequently wrong and you may win outright!

    • I think it would be prudent to stick with a realistic objective and that is the hundred and £69 which you you can apparently support by means of evidence. You originally said that you could have sold them for four times – £400 and I think this is certainly unrealistic. If you had some official evaluation of the books from an independent source then you would have stood a good chance but as the books have gone, I think your fallback is the £169
    • Hi  I don't have an issue going all the way - The only question I would have would be whether I could expect to recover the resale value or whether it would be best to concede this is unlikely. I can prove to some extent the expected resale value but not as readily as the prices originally paid.

    • 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

Chobham Central Garage - Details of Court action

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Creating this thread to detail my own experience with this dealership and field and find other users with similar stories - I know a few existing threads on this company that exist here already.

 

I am actively pursuing a court judgement on CCG (Chobham Central Garage) for knowingly selling me a car for £3,000 with a broken heater matrix (£1000 to replace -parts and labour) and for knowingly misleading me on its repair.

 

The car was sold to me last year (2019) in September/October time frame - I lodged my case with the small claims online service in November and I am now submitting evidence to the local courts and will be awaiting a court date.

 

I will highlight the details of the case and my multiple exchanges with this firm below and hopefully follow up in time once i receive my court date and ultimately judgement.

 

If successful this will lead to a  county court judgement against the firm  - I am aware of others here that have had similar judgments in their favour - Steps after that will be to share information on how best to claim moneys ordered by the court.

 

I will outline the people i dealt with in person and online and provide details that others might find useful.

Thanks for this. As you actually issued the claim, maybe you'd be kind enough to post up your claim form in PDF format.

Also, are you aware that the difficulty with this firm might be enforcing a judgement. Do you know that for a judgement over £600 you are able to transfer up to the High Court for a very rigourous enforcement procedure.

Presumably they have put in a defence. Please could you post up their defence in PDF format as well.

Dear Bank Fodder,

 

Thanks for your reply - I appreciated your previous posts related to this firm. Thank you for the information relating to the High court, i will bear that in mind also

I will post everything related to the case in due course once i have it well organised as well as detailed instructions to others on how to take action on this firm in anyway i can.

In the meantime maybe you would consider sending me the claim form and the defence by email to our admin email address. It would be in confidence

Don't necessarily use this company – you should shop around for enforcement that here is a video which tells you something about the procedure

 

You need to make sure that it is agreed that if they are unable to enforce the judgement, that you will not pay any fee other than the initial £66 or so transfer-up fee.

High Court enforcement can cost as much as £2000 and that will normally be added to the amount which is enforced and that means that it would be Chobham Central motors who would have to pay it.
Oh how we laughed.

I'm afraid i couldn't find it as you described - 

I googled it however and found what i believe is the correct address from another part of this site "admin@ etc"

Hopefully you will receive it shortly

 

Happy to take your advice on what is appropriate to post and what may not be so.

I don't see anything wrong with putting up both documents in scanned PDF format. It may be helpful to other people.

I have to say that your claim form is overly long. It discloses far too much evidence – a much simpler form of words was all that was necessary.

I'm very concerned that the defendant apparently says that they tried to pay you £500 but you gave the wrong bank details.

Thanks BankFodder - appreciate the feedback 

 

I have emails (many) with Mikael Shamir which can demonstrate that  i did not provide incorrect bank details (they were, for whatever reason best know to themselves, wasting my time)

So did they are few £500 or not? Did you accept it or not?

It will be helpful if you could tell us what happened

Sure - Intending to post the sequence of events, as summarily as possible shortly..

But to your question - Yes they offered 500, Yes i accepted - The insisted i sign a non disclosure form - which i did after amending it to ensure it was non valid if they failed to deposit funds. They failed to deposit funds citing the details were incorrect   - which they werent.

Okay well if you have evidence of that then that will help you enormously when it goes to court.

I don't think there's much else we can say at the moment. I think you need to get your documents together and if you've have a look at the suggestions we make on our advice about how to prepare your court bundle, you might find this useful.
