    • 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.

Old secured Picture Loan sold to Link , home was repo'd no longer secured.

In 2007 we had a Picture home loan secured on our property.

 In 2014 the property was repossessed and since we haven’t made any payments.  

I have kept them up to date when we have moved home.  The loan no longer shows on my credit file.  

I received a letter from them a few days ago saying they were transferring to a company called Asset Link Capital (No.7) Ltd.

Today I have received a letter from Asset Link introducing themselves and saying nothing will change other than they will be collecting payments now.

What is likely to happen now?  

I guess they’ll be asking for us to restart paying but we don’t have the money to pay.

 Can they also mess up our credit files which are now good and show no debts.

 I do remember being told as the loan was secured they have 12 years to chase the outstanding debt.

Many Thanks

  • dx100uk changed the title to Old secured Picture Loan sold to Link , home was repo'd no longer secured.

sold to Link DCA then, the biggest they out there!!

wonder why platform, who could and do take debtors to court and crush them, decided to sell a debt on for 10p=£1...urm..

either the debt is totally unenforceable ( no enforce able paperwork) or not now legally owed i expect.

no they cant put it back on your file.

expect a forest through your door, but until/unless you ever get a letter of claim from their dogs, Kearns solicitors...ignore them.

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.  

Does the fact that it was secured (not anymore) and not regulated due to the amount make a difference to how they can pursue it.

If I remember we took it out in 2006 but in 2007 we wanted to move and originally they refused to allow the sale of our house to go through unless we paid it off which we couldn’t

they said if we consolidated other debts increasing the loan we could

that’s what we did (we were desperate to move as my father had cancer and we lived 200 miles away)

The last payment I think was around 2014.

So even more reasons it was crap in the 1st place rhen. They conned you both.

A consolidation loan should list where and to whom the differing sums should go. It doesnt so fails under the multiple agreements arguement.

 

Link knows nothing about its history, you are one line in a spreadsheet.and they never will.

Another letter received from Link.  Is it ok to still ignore?  

It’s just saying they can help us get back on track.

Address upto date and not showing on credit file.

It was an old secured loan from Picture.

 House it was secured on was repossessed in 2014.

 No payments or contact by us have been made.
Thank you
