    • 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.

Hi Jellie, i hope your still around as i see you have had no replies. this company are the worst and will charge for anything and everything they think they can get away with, please send a SAR to them and whilst waiting on the reply read, read, and read again about Blemain, this will not be quick to sort but if your committed to fighting back you will do ok.

Hi Jellies, so sorry you were missed and welcome to cag.

 

So yes, first thing you must do is send a subject access request to blemain in order to get the info and statements you will need. Unless of course you already have the statements.

 

There is a £10 fee for a sar and they will have 40 days from receipt of the request in which to supply everything they have.

 

Once you have your sar from them, come back and we will guide you through reclaiming all those charges.

I have taken that information off the statements which they actually sent free :) there was some miscalculation as well somewhere and i think they were to refund to the account but i need to dig that out and see if they ever did that, or that may have been ge money....who is my main mortgage and actually not as bad their penaltys are less thatn 5k on an 85k mortgage so in compartison where blemain penaltys are more than i borrowed.....

Thank you for your replies , so what do i do now.......they also bully me threatening me with the fact they can reposess anytime they like as ive been in court three times them trying to do that and they failed as i managed to sell enough to get the arrears up to date each time...and once they did it wrong too! nut anytime they talk to me they say do you know we can reposess this with no real notice anytime now so you have to adhere to payments and you do not have any chances left so now they say i have to stick to this or they will not negotiate again....-_- this made me so sick with worry all the time

Firstly I definately need some help,

I accept things got in a mess but My daughter was suddenly diagnosed with chronic pain syndrome at the beginning of this loan and i have only just removed my head from my bottom now she is 20 and more independent.

 

My father died ,

my mother got cancer went in a home and died

and this is the first year i have been able to pull 20 boxes of paperwork out and question things.

 

I am a single mum so there is little time to do financial things when there is washing and hoovering !

 

I copied someone elses post and filled it with my stuff i hope this was okay as it was very similar.

 

I took out a Blemain finance loan on the 26/03/2008 for £15,208.15 , secured against my property (it was actually a refinancing of a previous loan with swift loans or something) .

 

The interest on the loan was 13.9% - it said variable which it never is APR 20.1

 

I got the information from them today and i have a break down off all the charges.

 

Through out the loan I did have money problems,

looking at the breakdown of my account there is quite a number of late payments.

 

Over the period of the loan I've been charged for:

 

Letters = £30 - £35

collection telephone £30.00

telephone charge £35.00

instruction of agents £250

Visit = £100

Monthly charge - arrears = £33 - £46

Professional cost £86.00

court preparation fee £190

court hearing fee £215.00

Dishonoured Receipt = £30 - £35

Default Notice = £50

Buildings Insurance = £661 - £30

Buildings Insurance Block policy Charge = £16

legal costs = £282

 

These add up to day in a letter from them to a whopping £15,223.18 to todate the balance to date including this is £20,219.13 in total so my loan has 5k left to pay and the other 15k which is more than i first borrowed is their charges :(

 

I am about to loose my job so this really needs looking at

 

They say the charges are not regulated so they cannot refund them

 

I did get close to getting the house repossessed twice during this time

the second time their solicitor did not even turn up,

they still taunt me with the we have a suspended posession order blah blah from years ago pay now or else

 

Some of the above were charged multiple of times, others just a few,

 

plus there was a Broker fee at the start for £1,500 that company flexi loans no longer exist

 

What can i do the fsa and ombudsman said not them?

Any advice would be grateful

 

They have written back and would be prepared to refund

71.53 interest,

£350 management fees, which is £421.53 including interest and an old offer i never saw the final outcome of of £722.00 plus associated interest which they did not enlighten me what that is.

 

..i really think 2k back off 15k charges is horrid and id have to re loan this at the end and start again or use all of my pension due in 3 years to pay them.

 

I also asked for the underwriting document today re any hidden commissions etc, as this came from flexi loans who are no more ,

 

together say they had to put me on a list while they await the outcome of a ruling whether people can have this information or not....

I have downloaded the sheet

i started a new thread as it didnt show me this one on my kindle

but now i have a pc and i can see this ,

 

 

can i add the buildings insurances on top?

and if anyone can check them for me as the buggers seem to be charging interest on everything , allthough it is variable

 

 

they say they never vary the interest as they don't have to and are not obliged to as it is a business decision, not anyone elses

 

can i claim the buildings insurances back as one from 2008 they charged me for @ £661.50 had got added interest on top of £1,659.69! instructions of agents i think was monarch..£250 with £607.27 interest on top of that also to date?

 

 

are these to be added also but the interest auto adds on that sheet?

 

there is buildings insurance and buildings block policy charges each time too? what do they mean?

 

i included everything on their sheet which came to more totalled up than was o their sheet and had discrepencies as well!

 

CLAIM CALCULATION Total of Charges £6,956.80 Compound Interest £10,659.47 Total £17,616.27 the loan was for 12k...in 2008....

@13.9 %

 

It is a second charge loan with variable interest and as i read a LOT of posts i also have the never went down as they said its privately funded to me or something lol....

 

 

also had my own insurances they say never received and also ge money had it covered too as well...

 

 

will be dealing with them next! but surely one insurance writes off the other?.

 

 

..so i cant have three policies for the same house?

 

the underwriting list isnt for my eyes they said i have no right to see this now

 

so the other things on there are the

broker fee £1,500

solicitor fee £100

Title insurance £175.00

Loan processing fee £545

Im guessing i don't add them :p

Good Evening

 

I have paid all my contractural payments to blemain and last year there were no more second charge payments left , so a 12k loan , paid 35k back , now paid they claim in have 18k in penalties and interest to pay still

To be fair i gave it to a no win no fee company during lockdown who went bust and then forgot about it!

 

They say i have 7 days , this whole suspended posession order was years ago and not really on the  extra fees and interest so how do i deal with this , i work at 5am until after they are gone at night so i cannot see how i can get hold of them in those timescales?

 

I have tried calling them but they are always gone by the time i get home from work

 

I am not in a position nor want to pay their letter fees , building insurance , agent visits and whatever else plus interest they added

 

I took my pension out and paid almost all my debt off so i am guessing they saw that and are going to try take the house now !

 

I want to give this to a solicitor but im not sure how to deal with it now , ive seen all the fees and what they are for and asked them nicely to refund them and they just laughed at me refused and then , as usual constantly mock and try scare me with the we can reposess anytime we like routine , i need this finished as it affected my health and now i am struggling to sleep with the worry

 

If anyone can help me i would be very grateful , i also have two different copies of the original agreement , they said one must have been amended after i signed it

 

They told me to have a self cert as i was not working much and quite a few other pushy tricks, the broker also went poof since

They also refused to give me the underwriting sheet

 

Yours hopefully

J
