Goosedale WEDDING VENUE REFUSING REFUND


Recommended Posts

Its just so distressing Andy that this Venue is putting us through all this extra cost and distress. when all they have to do is refund the money but the refuse to accept the CMA guidelines and now we are at stage one again, trying to recover which is rightfully our money which they have had for the last 19 Months, and incurred not costs for us or provided any service, this Injustice they are causing is wrong, I am not sure what defence they will now raise this is very stressful indeed.

 

thank you for your help to date.

COVID-19 refunds: CMA warns wedding firms over unfair practices

The CMA has issued new warnings to firms over concerns that couples are still not receiving fair refunds for weddings that could not go ahead during the pandemic.

Published 26 November 2020

Following the publication of its statement on wedding cancellations and refunds, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) took action against Bijou Weddings Group to secure fair refunds for its customers. However, the CMA has continued to receive new complaints from couples who had their big day booked with other wedding party providers, prompting the CMA to write directly to several firms which may have broken consumer law. Couples have complained about being misled about the level of refund they are entitled to or being offered the opportunity to rebook but only at a higher price.

These businesses are being asked to review their practices to ensure they comply with the law, or risk enforcement action if they fail to do so – including being required to provide refunds.

As a result of concerns highlighted by the most recent complaints, the CMA is also making its views clear to all wedding firms:

  • businesses should not make deductions from the refund unless they can prove those costs were incurred directly for the wedding in question and have provided a breakdown of those costs. Where a contract is for venue hire only, the CMA would generally not expect there to be any deductions. The CMA has not set a ‘benchmark’ amount when it comes to providing refunds and each case must be assessed on an individual basis
  • businesses need to meet their legal obligations promptly and should not unreasonably delay or refuse to provide refunds to couples when they are due
  • couples should not face additional charges when they voluntarily agree to reschedule their wedding to a comparable date and service, instead of seeking a refund

All wedding firms are being urged to look at their policies on refunds and cancellations and make changes where needed.

Hi Andy no I have not received anything from the Court at all, further to my email on 18/19 November 2020.

 

I have just been told the working pattern from my employer so was just thinking I should tell the court I am not available on the dates above as I will be working away from my local area.

keep checking with the court to see if they have served the amended particulars...or if the court wants you to serve them.....until this happens it wont go to allocation.

Hi Andy

 

I have just checked the post again, I can confirm they have served the particulars on 24 November 2020, a copy was sent to me and my Daughter and I presume it was sent to the other side too, it was a copy of the application and the attached order for adding my daughters name and the costs, there was nothing else included, I have not received anything else from the Court after my email above to them asking for the Name to be corrected etc as in post 148

Good so the defendant has time to submit a further defence...the court will advise if they have  or if not what will happen next.

Thank you for your reassurance Andy, I am lost for words on how this Venue has behaved to date, they are just greedy and do not care at all about the Bride, groom or parents and what we have had to do to save this money, and then not been able to give our daughter the wedding we saved for, and now they just play a game with the Court claim.

 

I just hope the CMA are going to help other in a similar situation to us, as this is not right at all.

 

Thank you for your help Andy.

Hi Andy and Forum Happy New Year to all.

 

I can confirm that I have received their embarrassed type defence from a Firm of solicitors in Liverpool on their behalf,

 

making up various facts including that we agreed a new contract with limited guests,

and then cancelled the contract with only 34 days notice,

 

they seem to be implying that we have no claim as we cancelled the contract and it was not frustrated at all and they are entitled to 75% fees, and no costs can be claimed by us,

 

I have been trying to upload the document, but I am having difficulty as it is some 4 pages long, I am trying to load these up in the Forum by Sunday.

 

Thank you all

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 HB i just did upload the documents which were previously blanked out, but for some reason the blanking was removed when uploaded so rather than get things more confusing I uploaded them as soon as they have been read I will remove the ones which identify the names on the documents and leave the previous ones.
