    • Calm Down please.... there is only one way to deal with this and that is - PROPERLY. Being surrounded by 'lawyers' who deal with 'disputes', just like going to the likes of CAB, in this instance has, most probably, to date,  sadly not helping you here. Such people always project an Aura of confidence, when the truth is they don't actually have the vast successful experience of the members here in dealing with the likes BMW. there are over 350 threads here . as far i gather this is the situation, In April, a car was purchased by your son from BMW. Finance taken out to purchase it has since been paid in full, as well as full payment for an annual Insurance policy. within 6 weeks, it was discovered and confirmed in writing, via a report from a local garage, that the car indeed had numerous performance modifications undertaken. Namely being remapped and with modifications to the exhaust system. having contacted his ins co, they require a further £5k to uprate his policy, without it renders the existing insurance policy invalid, thus the car is not being driven.  again within this 6 weeks, you wrote to BMW rejecting the car (we need to see this letter please. scan it up to PDF, please read our UPLOAD guide). at first BMW were onboard, even sending their own inspector, confirming the mods etc. but in the last 9 days since said inspection, comms have now gone dead. .................. you have 2 options - 1 - allow BMW to sort the car FOC and without hassle to him, but probably within their own snails pace timeframe. 2- EVENTUALLY bring legal action - this would most probably be under contract law, not a claim under the consumer rights act . (as financially you would lose out big time) to do 2. which is not easy and rather complex to calculate the financial sum involved...... we need all the info @BankFodder has requested. of many, but one good reason for this is say for this new mot, show the old one was suspect, good bargaining chip against 2500mls usage deductions... your call but you need to do this properly or not at all...............    
    • Hi, I've been reading through many of the stories in the sub-forum and I understand the process to be to send a Letter of Claim to the EVRi - in the post and to their customer support email and to sign up for MCOL.  I have looked at the various Letters of Claim and the MCOL claim forms - particulars of claim and I have gone through all of the screens on MCOL website to put in the final details so it is ready to go after the 14 days from when I send the Letter of Claim (of course assuming that EVRi dismisses my Letter of Claim to pay me in full!).  I also see the advise is to decline any mediation particularly because I have specified the parcel contents and value to EVRi when shipping it. I have put both the Letter of Claim and the forms from the MCOL particulars of claim into a single PDF for review.  The stories in the sub-forum often indicate people shipping with EVRi but some purchase through or have involved such companies as Parcel2Go and so I wasn't sure about the statement I made in the Letter of Claim if it was totally accurate to say "I am applying my third party rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999"? I just wanted to confirm the correct wording.  In my case the parcel shipment was paid for on the EVRi website and sent at the Tesco EVRi Parcelshop.  On the MCOL claim form I have referenced Section 57 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 in response to EVRi customer service hiding behind their lack of ability to insure delivery of laptops and their bogus non-compensated and prohibited items as a means to avoid any responsibility for them losing such items. Thank you for taking a look to see if there are any inaccuracies or amendments to the Letter of Claim - when it is looking good I will send via email and post it to EVRi.  Having drafted the particulars of the claim on MCOL, I shall be ready to submit the claim on the MCOL site when the 14 day period has elapsed and proceed from there.   Thanks for everyone's help!

    • Wow quite surprised by your response in all honesty as I can’t see where you have requested details of the car. The car is insured and that was budgeted for and paid in full, the increase of £5k is because of the modifications, which no we didn’t budget for as we didn’t plan to buy a modified car, so no that doesn’t form any part of wanting to return the car, perhaps you don’t understand the impact modifications have on insurance premiums? Thanks for your help so far but feel going the legal route probably suits us better.

    • 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.

Erudio/Drydens 2*PAPLOC Now Claimform - old SLC loans - Erudio refusing Deferment as debt has matured- help deferment erudio matured refusing saying (Thread 2)


Dayzy

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

My partner has two student loans with Erudio.

 

Back in March he received a phone call from them saying that his loan had matured and they wanted payment. We asked them to send this in writing and never heard anything, they also hadn’t sent any reminders regarding deferment. He continued with his deferment for his two thesis loans and received confirmation from SLC that deferment had been accepted for both Erudio and Thesis.

 

However we received a letter last week from Erudio demanding payment of the loan. I called them on partners behalf, he has anxiety and cannot deal with phone calls like this. Asked them why he had to pay if the slc had agreed deferment. They said that there had been a delay in deferment and as a result the loan is now post maturity. They said that they will be requesting proof of deferment history from the student loans company?? (Why do they need this?)

 

This morning we received two letters from Erudio, 1 saying that deferment has been rejected, and that they have requested proof of deferment history from SLC and that they have included a copy of the terms and conditions. However these have not been signed and they are just a blank printed copy of the terms and conditions. Nowhere on the letter does it say what we need to do next. The second letter asks us to complete a I&e form within 30 days so that they can agree a repayment plan. However, this all seems fishy to me.

 

In the terms and conditions it says that they will write to confirm deferment thresholds each year and send a pack, but they didn’t ever send anything. They also didn’t send a breakdown of the loans as I requested. They also want me to pay for a copy of the original signed loan agreement...

 

Please can any of you offer any advice on how to proceed??

Thesis are happy with the deferment of the loans so why are Erudio being so difficult?

 

Thanks so much in advance this situation is causing huge amounts of stress!

Thanks @renegadeimp they have now sent letters, but they originally phoned in March and I requested communication in writing then, however we didn’t receive anything until last week after we have received confirmation of deferment from student loans company for the loans. 

 

Then Erudio wrote to say that deferment was rejected as the loan had matured!

yes stay off that phone!!

 

never talk to a fleecing DCA {erudio are Arrows DCA] over the phone about ANY debt

they are not BAILIFFS

and have

ZERO legal powers.

 

if you've not already, wack in an original SLC deferment form [in the stickies of this forum]

dont ever use the ones sent by erudio as they try and waive certain inbuilt protection by the SLC.

 

they've already been carpeted for this matured load claim by the authorities

don't fall for it.

 

everything in writing ONLY. put the phone down

block their numbers and emails.

Thanks Dx. But the student loans company have already accepted deferment for the Erudio LoanS,

but Erudio are now saying that they won’t accept the deferment as the loan has matured?

 

They said that they are going to ask for a deferment history from the SLC,

and have sent an income and expenditure form for my partner to complete.

 

I don’t understand why they have sent this if they are requesting history from SLC?

I don’t know how to respond!!

If slc accepted it then studio are out of luck and it's the reason they won't put it in writing

Ignore the fleecers and come.back if they ever bother putting something in writing.

Thanks so much for the advice

but Erudio say that the loan has reached maturity due to the deferment being late,

the deferment process took 4 months due to SLC being difficult about my partners new self employment status,

lack of tax return due to being newly self employed,

 

thesis understood this and said not to worry,

however Erudio have been saying the the loan needs repaying now.

 

What can they be requesting from the SLC in regards to deferment history and can they refuse to allow deferment?

 

Also What happens if we don’t complete the income and expenditure form within the next 30 days as requested??

They haven’t sent any breakdown of the loan, or mentioned any areers, just sent a letter with the loan balance on the top.

 

Thanks so much for any advice, we really appreciate it as it seems that these clowns are trying to make things very difficult and confusing!

Erudio will say and do anything to get you to pay.

 

SLC accepted the deferment. End of story. When the next one comes up, send the form linked in the stickies. NOT the one erudio says to fill in.

 

Theres nothing they can do.

Thanks so much for the advice,

guess we are just scared that they will send bailiffs round,

or OH will get a bad credit rating,

 

also worries that they may be adding arears to the loan without us knowing as they haven’t sent a breakdown of the account as requested.

 

We will ignore letters then and wait and see what happens...��

They wont go near bailiffs. Why on earth would you think they could just randomly send bailiffs to your house? SLC accepted the deferment, so have a good laugh at erudio

Thanks so much for the advice,

guess we are just scared that they will send bailiffs round, - nope cant do that a dca is NOT A BAILIFF. they would only get involved if the fleecing DCA take her to court and you lose and you don't pay within 28days [possibly!!]..erudio have never taken anyone to court over an old SLC loan that wasn't a backdoor CCJ to an old address or a patsy. they've never tried yet, and I doubt they ever will with these toxic Gov't loans.

or OH will get a bad credit rating, - they might try and place a default but I believe they've already been hauled over the coals about doing this by the FOS and had to remove them.

also worries that they may be adding arears to the loan without us knowing as they haven’t sent a breakdown of the account as requested. - doesn't matter, any penalty charges are unlawful under FCA rules and reclaimable if it ever came to that.

 

We will ignore letters then and wait and see what happens...��

 

 

 

 

as said unless you get a letter of/before claim or a claimform pack ..best to ignore them.

Hello there. an update and further request for help. Thanks for all the help you gave me last year.

 

in early Aug 2018 i had made a complaint on the phone regarding the mishandling of my partners account, refusal to accept the SLC's deferment, and demands for payment, general hassling and lack of information being sent by post as i had requested. (unfortunately and yes stupidly on the phone) We heard nothing more for several weeks, other than a letter saying that they were looking into the complaint.

 

Then my partner was sent a cheque for £100 in full and final settlement of his complaint. It didn't give any detail, or response to the complaint, just the cheque and a very short sentence saying the cheque was in full and final settlement of the complaint. This was last October. We assumed that this was all resolved and that we would just need to defer again when the time came.

 

Skip forward to today.

 

He has received a Demand In Full letter from Erudio today again saying that the loan has now matured and that the outstanding balance of £533.47 is now due in full. They go on to say that as a consequence all contractual rights have been terminated including;

 

The ability to defer the loan;

the right of cancellation of debt upon reaching 50 years of age;

the right of cancellation of the debt after it has been outstanding for 25 years.

it ends asking us to call them to discuss repayment within 14 days to prevent the account being passed to a DCA.

 

Please can you advise me how to proceed?

i obviously know now not to ring them, but how do i get them off our back?

 

thanks so much for your help in advance.

Thanks dx100uk.

 

He deferred through SLC, who sent confirmation of the deferment, but Erudio disputed this, saying that they weren't accepting it, which is why i complained to them. I have never had anything in writing from them saying that they have accepted the deferment, just the full and final settlement of the complaint letter. Which i assumed meant that they had agreed to the deferment etc.

 

My question is, what is likely to happen if we ignore this letter and don't respond within the 14 days? what will happen next?

 

thanks again..

Hi all, Please can you advise me on how to write a letter/ email to Erudio to get them to back off?

 

I ignored the Demand in full letter that they sent on 26/1 as advised, however i arrived home yesterday to a Notification of Termination Letter yesterday, demanding payment or a payment plan with the threat of the account being referred to their preferred DCA if i don't.

 

I feel that i need to write to them to complain in case i need to send this to the financial ombudsman, but am not sure how to word the letter. are there any templates that you would suggest i use?

 

Just to recap.

 

1. March 18 Erudio called out of the blue to say the account was matured and demanded payment. I requested this be sent in writing with a statement of account. They didn't send anything.

 

2. July 18 letter received from Erudio saying that they refuse to accept deferment after SLC had recently accepted deferment for loans with Erudio and Thesis.

 

3. I made a complaint to Erudio regarding lack of communication in writing, lack of response to my request for statement of accounts. Also the stress this was causing us. Erudio said that they would need to get a history of deferment from SLC and make a decision. Again i asked for this in writing, they didn't respond.

 

4. Sept 18. Erudio send a statement of account from 1/9/17-31/8/18 no mention of any arrears on there or further request for payment.

 

5. Sept 18 Receive a letter and cheque for £100 from Erudio in full and final settlement of the complaint, no details regarding the complaint at all. No mention of a need to pay the loan back. Considered everything resolved for the year and pocketed the cash :)

 

6. Jan 19 the cycle begins again...

 

So i'd really like them to back off. How would you suggest i respond? any templates would be great thanks..

Hello there. 
 

update to my previous post last year, if you can offer advice I would be greatful.
 

My partner received the attached letter a couple of days ago, his student loans have always been deferred.

 

We received a letter a few months ago saying that his loan was now with Capquest,

which we ignored,

 

then this one appeared saying the account had been handed over to their solicitors Dryden Fairfax. 
 

Do we need to do anything?

Shall I send a letter Disputing that we owe money as the debt is always deferred due to earnings or just ignore it??

 

I can’t see that erudio would try for a CCJ for this small amount??

 

Am I correct??

 

thanks for your help.
