    • Hi, I have found this group very helpful hence I am here seeking help and advice.   I got myself into a situation where I have now more than £50k in unsecured debts (personal loans & credit cards) and things are now getting out of control as I am struggling to make payments. This is purely my own created situation and I am taking 100% responsibility for it. I am keen to get out of this situation as soon as possible hence I would appreciate any help and advice in this process. I am employed at the moment and don’t want to risk going into IVA or bankruptcy as this would risk losing my job. Being sole bread earner of my family, I cannot afford to lose my job. I have been trying to keep up with the payments so far and had few missed payments instances until 3/4 months ago but got caught up with missed payments somehow using my savings. All my debts are still with original lenders. However I know I am getting into same situation again shortly and won’t be able to get out of it again. I have started exploring Debt Management Plan (DMP) option through StepChange but haven’t submitted it yet. Based on budgeting, I have around £820 available to make payments to all lenders after taking care of all other essential expenses. This is definitely lot more affordable than what I am currently paying to different lenders. 1. Is DMP right option for me in current situation? 2. what are the negative consequences of availing DMP? 3. is there something else that I can do to get out of this situation? I’m determined to clear out all my debts but need bit of breathing space and time. Let me know please if you need any additional information. Thanks in advance for all your help and guidance. MM

    • 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.

In scotland from 1st December we can now use the online portal for response, so I ended up chopping up the response over the corresponding boxes online.  I've had a lot going on in my personal life and tbh haven't really given this the attention I should have.  I'll await and see what the courts say because I know tomorrow I won't get a chance to look at this

which is why we always suggest using the written forms till they get their system sorted out.

Haha, yeah I've read about giving up email addresses. If I did I'd use a temporary email address that self destructs after 24hours and state that all correspondence to myself must be sent explicitly via post.

 

As per I'm just counting on them not being able to produce any paperwork and the court dismissing the case.

Oh...😭...

 

It was a catalogue it I think it was like 0 interest for so long then after they upped the credit limit I got hit with interest and higher repayments if I recall.  I could be wrong though.  I just remember it snowballing and getting put to the wayside and forgotten about

thats ok Scotland and the words they use are strange.

intimation means tell for want of another word.

 

IA or incidental Application means you could pre empt this all by demanding the documentation by the use of one.., but the sheriff seems a smart cookie, though i dont like the use of the word tending

Ok so could I for example pit in a CCA request at the beginning of February for example and if Cabot don't adhere to the 12 days use that as an intimation of my position? Or am I way off the mark.

 

The way I understand the letter is they are wanting Cabot to produce the correct paperwork to continue?

 

But the last but that you have pointed out now is confusing me a little.

  • 2 months later...

Just a quick update, I stupidly didn't post a CCA (a hell of a lot going on in my personal life just now) but that aside no evidence had been produced by Nolan's until I go check civil online today and they've posted up letter of assignation and a statement from Cabot with the figure due.  

 

I wouldn't have known this evidence was produced if I hadn't of checked online.  

 

I'm guessing I just have to hold my hands up now? Case meeting in tomorrow morning at 10am.
