    • But the booking platform warns it is still too early to predict how many travellers will return in 2021. View the full article
    • I purchased a bathroom tap for £125 from online company, 'QS SUPPLIES', in May 2020. It was duly fitted and all was fine until December 2020 when the top lever came away from the base of the tap rendering it useless. I immediately contacted QS SUPPLIES using their online complaints procedure and submitted a photo, as required. When after a few days I had heard nothing from them I called their CUSTOMER SERVICES team and was told that they were waiting for a response from the manufacturer, a company called 'SANEUX', I pointed out that my contract was not with the manufacturer and that I expected QS SUPPLIES to deal with my complaint. I was then advised to email them again, which I did...twice.... when they finally responded to my second email they asked me to send another photo of the faulty tap. This time, their response was that their,  TECHNICAL TEAM had looked at the photo and decided that the tap, "APPEARED TO BE FORCED", and therefore they would be, "UNABLE TO OFFER A REFUND ON THIS OCCASION".  So after  7 months of use and at a cost of £125, this company, on the strength of one slightly grainy photo have decided I am entitled to nothing. I have applied to be reimbursed by my credit card company under Section 75 but I am still determined to attempt to get QS SUPPLIES to take responsibility and would really appreciate any advice about the best way to go about this.

    • Hi Everyone,  I am the seller in this case and want to thank the buyer for their support.  The bike was delivered to the local Hermes Parcel Shop really well packaged and sealed on the 3rd Feb with a receipt obtained.  Sadly the parcel was emptied on route to the buyer.   I had listed the bike for collection only however the buyer messaged and asked if we could arrange a courier to which I agreed and they organised that.  When the bike went missing I contacted the local police as the Hermes parcel shop said they would not release CCTV to me.  We got all this from the Police.  since then the buyer has tried his very best which I am grateful with Hermes and parcel2go but is struggling.  Any help is appreciated.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Absolutely the right way to go  Yes it hurts to pay them more  But an irl claim will likely get this back and a lot more  You have reduced the interest rate on your loan, saved the cost

Thanks so much for all your help to date. 
I have had no response to either yet to letter of complaint. I thought I may have received an acknowledgement today.

I did tell them they could not go forward with repossession at this time. 
I will call that number now. 😊

Going by what i'm finding. CCP rarely get their BOS's registered.

now im a bit puzzled at how Burlington s are involved here.

As i suspect there has been no court case im gonna bet that burs are only acting as a powerless dca here and have zero powers to do anything.

have you any written comms from them ?

i bet not!!

 

as you have paid more than 1/3rd under the cca (read the agreement) your car is deemed protected goods so if they do snatch it its voids everything and you'd be entitled to all your payments back and keep the car foc or monetary equiv

just testing as all my replies aren’t posting 

 

Never been a court case.

 

There was a payment plan agreed for 8 weeks beginning in round 12th December for 80 per week. I paid this and missed the next few weeks. This was due to deaths

 

I just didn’t bother myself even checking my bank or transferring from one to another as I would always do. I missed a few things over that few weeks.

 

I heard nothing more until Monday evening when got a call from a random man on a mobile number. I only found out it was Burlington when made a complaint about him the next morning to car cash point.

 

I checked my emails at that stage and there was an email from CCP on 5th January saying I must contact them within 24 hours or the account was being passed to.debt recovery agency.

I guessed right then

A powerless dca should ...have come here 1st before responding

But its not hurt you

Just youve been late telling us.

 

Next time put the phone down stating writing only 

 

You ideally should also be telling ccp writing only from now now  on ..no texts,calls,emails as i can fast see you having a good case with the FOS later

 

I'd be firing off that irl complaint now

I put formal complaint in letter format today and emailed them with it both to the collections manager who emails me and their complaints manager. Told them I had taken legal advice and was pursuing a complaint with Financial Conduct authority for the way they handled this and to the Financial Ombudsman for the unjust fees and charges etc. 


I also said at the bottom of that complaint that my legal advisors were shocked at the fact I ever got accepted for a loan and have advised me to pursue a complaint based on irresponsible lending and that I would be doing that immediately also.

well they wont do anything till you expire the OC's complaints procedure

which is why to date if you mean us by your advisors haven't said to do that.

 

you need to walk before you can run.

slowly slowly catchy monkey.

But have I not followed correct procedure?

I have put in the complaint re their handling of the situation and explained I will be putting in another re ir. 

I am going to send another letter in the morning re irresponsible lending.

I will wait until I have a final outcome letter from them re both matters and then open my case with FOS.

I had thought that’s best way to do it.

good sure

 

step back now

you have the upperhand

it wasn't bailiffs

and they had/have zero legal powers to do what he said on the phone

sadly they were trying to scam you.

deal with this the correct way and you'll be smiling down the line.

Thanks very much I appreciate all your help. Very kind of you. 
I feel in a much better position now though I guess I’m just nervous that they will still uplift the vehicle even though it is illegal and they don’t have the power to do so. They would have done on Monday if I had been there. It’s just a nervy feeling to carry with me every day as I am trying to work etc. 
If the BOS is correctly registered does it not give them power?

if they had taken the vehicle (or do) then that voids the HP agreement under the consumer credit act...you win as advised already.

matters not if you find the BOS has been correctly registered.

they have not been to court .

Update on this is I spoke to court in Belfast. They say a bill of sale is held there and successfully registered on 30/4/2018. The agreement is dated 23/4/18 so they tell me in the Court I have legally passed ownership to the company. 
I probably don’t have a leg to stand on now.

Doesn't really change anything. They still have to goto court as youve paid more than 1/3rd

 

did we send ccp an sar so far, as youll have heaps of unlawful penalty charges to get knocked off too

Hate saying this but your lbl is linked to a personal loan agreement not an hp agreement 

they can just lift the car you don't have HP protections

They must of course follow CONC when dealing with you 

I would get the car locked away in a garage and contact urgently stepchange Northern Ireland 

and get them to agree a repayment plan with CCP 

Under the CCTA logbook loan code  ( section 4.8)CCP will then have to halt recovery procedures for 30 days 

if stepchange are involved

Oh no this is panicking me. Thank you for this. Are they still able to come on to private property?

 

I feel really conflicted now on everything.

Does anyone know if the fact that FCA have a ban on repossessions until 31st January have any bearing on things. Does that buy me time?

i thought that was home repo's but if you've read otherwise you should be ok

no they cannot take it from private property no court has been involved

and they are not bailiffs either

 

hello TOR i was going to ping you but was just so busy.

forget that bit about pers loan ofcourse..

i was leaning toward a time order anyway?

Yes ban ends  31Jan

Time order would be good 

but Just suggesting a free urgent alternative to buy a 30 day stay

BOS are still the Wild West of lending 

Law Commissions proposals were dropped by the Government 

However once you have secured your car you have grounds for complaints IRL, unfair treatment ,etc

Problem is once you sign a bos

you have effectively transferred ownership of your vehicle

Thanks very much that makes absolute sense. That’s exactly my aim at the minute to secure my vehicle. That has to be priority before I worry bout unfair payments etc.

 

I sent the letter of complaint in the hope they may enter into a payment plan still.

If I thought I had the time until the 31st January then it allows me time to prepare next steps etc. 


only problem is If there is a ban on repossessions why were they attempting to do it the other day and saying they still are.

simply because they can, don't forget a DCA is not a bailiff and can't seize anything, but if you had given the vehicle up voluntarily, which is what they'd claim, then that sort if doesn't count. as all they did was asked for it ..they are crafty like that as then they'd make £100's on fee .

get the vehicle safe by whatever and we'll deal.

That’s what he said on the phone that he was there to collect my vehicle and if I didn’t come to meet him with it then he was going to the police as it is now owned by the company. The company he works for emailed saying the case is still active and if sighted the vehicle will be uplifted.
