    • Received the claimants Directions Questionnaire today.  Haven't had anything else through. N180_Redacted.pdf
    • Hi team, I should of really walked away when they said the vehicle had no v5 and I would have to complete v62. They only disclosed v62 form after all documents for finance was signed. However, I needed a vehicle as I was the only driver in my household and my sister was extremly ill and I had to take her to hospital appointments. I purchased a vehicle from big motoring world on the 31/06/24. After driving away the vehicle the very same day I could hear a very distinctive water sloshing noise come from the interior. I then decided to take the vehicle back to branch 15 mins after driving away. The manager came for a ride and said he could hear something but this issue was ‘minor’ and it was my psychologial thinking that made the issue even worse. Manager was very rude. I then took the vehicle home knowing full well it would give me nothing but grief. A day after the rear left tyre started losing air. I know they could say this was probably due to the driver however I believe the issue was present before purchasing vehicle. I called up Audi and my finance company and explained situation. Audi could accomodate me for the 13th for a diagnostic. Finance company told me to take to an independant garage and not BMW. Motonovo been helpful in this situation.  I took vehicle to Audi for a diagnostic. Unfortunantly, they done an Audicam and the technician somewhat resolved the issue without guidance from myself. No charge was applicable as this was a health check. However, I wanted the diagnostic. The car still has water inside. Audi are saying this is a common fault. However, I have no confidence in the vehicle. I have emailed bigassist with all my findings and commanded them to collect the vehicle. Audi shall also be sending me an email next week of the issues they discovered. This was issue pre exisitng. It is still below 30 days, can I still reject? Do i need to send a letter? I have been very direct to BMW that I no longer want the vehicle. please can we assist    
    • lies is all they have @dx to support their adoration of 'little feet'  like trump, farage and bad penny wannabe 'little feet' caligulas and neros, empty of anything worthwhile.
    • I bought my house 2 years ago. The previous owner had died. I continue to recieve parking fines and communication from DVLA in the name of the dead person, despite contacting DVLA via post to inform them I am the new owner of the property. I have sent them proof of purchase and ownership but the communications continue to arrive. Aside from using "return to sender", does anyone have any idea how to stop this and get DVLA to update their records? Not sure if relevant but the Tax class on the vehicle is disabled meaning that the price of vehicle tax is £0 per year. I assume someone is using this to get free vehicle tax which is up to them, but I'm bored of fighting with parking charge companies and getting threatening letters, as whoever is doing this is also not very good at paying for parking.
    • I haven't heard of them asking for photographic evidence in this way before – but I don't think it will really pose a problem. Have you got a history of sending parcels which were then lost and you had to claim for? When you send your letter of claim? Was the item properly declared? Was the item correctly valued? Please answer these questions and then take at least a couple of days reading very thoroughly the stories on this sub- forum. There are lots of them. Read some of the pinned topics at the top which will explain the principles and then read the stories to see other people's experience. Post up your letter of claim in PDF format so we can see what you sent.

    • 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.

i doubt it, and them not getting it by the minute is immaterial.. you are a Litigant in person (joe public against the system) a certain leeway is always given,. if there were judgement, it would show.

i think kearns (as they do) are pulling a fast one to scam you. 

they can see mcol too. so..

nothing unusual for link/kearns...worst scammers/ fleecers out there,

if you wish you could ring northants bulk and check.

Today, after 4 wasted lunch-hours (Why does HMCTS only open normal office hours when we are all trying to earn money at the same time to pay off the debts?!!!) I finally got through.

They confirmed no such action has been entered against me, no CCJ and all I have done so far is above board and recorded.

Kearns have yet to respond to my defence.

So, scammers/fleecers they seem to be then.

Hi All, 

Hope everyone is well. It's been a while, but just had an A4 envelope thud on the doormat today. 

Looks like the game's up and I will have to sort out a repayment of some sort.

Kearns have considered my defence which I 'filled' (and they spelled that wrong twice!) and their client "does sympathise with my situation", but they have kindly "offered me the opportunity to settle the matter without the need for further court action"

In response to me requesting copies of the original documentation, they have also sent those. I don't seem to have the original Notice of Assignment which is unusual as I am careful with filing my documents. 

So, short of paying the full amount owed, plus costs accrued so far, is there any other avenue I can explore?

why do you keep thinking your game is up everytime you get a threat-o-gram.:noidea::nono:

what you have is a very std letter sent for every claim.

scan up everything to one mass PDF let US decide NOT YOU. 

the claim is stayed  and will cost them upto £275 to lift the stay....

they say they enclosed:

a Credit Card Application and Terms and Conditions  - NOPE they have NOT.

all they have done is included 2 sets of Terms and conditions with your name and address (is this the correct address for 18/07/2006?) at the top.

there's no dates on either of them, no signature from you on either and no signature or stamp from BC accepting the agreement on either  even if they were agreements...

they could have come out of Links filing cabinet and they inserted your details themselves . but eitherway neither are an enforceable Consumer Credit Agreement.

from page 12 there are two 2 pages of the well known 6620000000 T&C's which lost Hoist Uk lost SOOO many court claim over, that are well documented here , 30+ pages are missing but that is irrelevant.  type in 66200000 or claimform hoist barclaycard here and you'll see why.

Hoist UK are another DCA that raised so many BC claimforms that failed that their main group owner sold the uk branch off to another DCA as they lost so much money for the group in buying a portfolio of old BC debts they could never win on as NO paperwork ever existed. BC do not keep signed agreements and never have. 

see. PRA Letter of Claim - now Fast Track claimform - old barclaycard debt - now n244 - Page 6 - Financial Legal Issues - Consumer Action Group

just like the below stunt.

Hi All,

I've just had the inevitable N24 and other paperwork arrive.

I've read other examples on here and I think I understand the steps to follow.

I have until the 28th May to return the N180 Small Claims Direction Questionnaire, I also have an N244 Application notice copy.

I read an update on a case you kindly put a link in for me to read.

Turns out they lost in court and are now struggling.

I really don't want to get to that stage and am thinking mediation may be the way forward?

Thoughts please?

Pretty sure I've missed the 7 days to have the order set aside

For reference, this is what I received:

Dated 8th May

Before Deputy District Judge Baker sitting at the Civil National Business Centre, 4th Floor St Katharine's House, 21-27 St Katharine's Street, Northampton, NN1 2LH

 
The Court will deal with the application to lift the stay without hearing under CPR 23.8(c)
 
It is ordered that:
 
The Application to lift the stay and for direction questionnaires to be issued is granted.
 
Because this Order has been made without a hearing, the parties have the right to apply to have the Order set aside, varied or stayed. A party making such an application must send or deliver the application to the court (together with any appropriate fee) to arrive within seven days of service of this Order. If the application is one which requires a hearing, and
 
a) the party making the application is the Defendant; and
b) the Defendant is an individual,
 
then upon the filing of the application the claim will be transferred to the Defendant's home court. In all other cases requiring a hearing the claim will be transferred to the preferred court.

FYI I've had a copy from Kearns arrive today of the DQ from the claimant agreeing to referral to the Small Claims Mediation Service and without a hearing.

I am a bit wary of the two replies above from you both.

Which is the most relevant and most urgent to action?

I'm away from Sunday the 19th to Wednesday 22nd working abroad and am conscious there's a bank holiday the day before the deadline so it doesn't give me much time to collate and post relevant paperwork either to you or the parties involved.

Do I just fill in the N180 and post? 

Apologies for my ignorance, It's out of my comfort zone!

Also my case seems to be over the £10k barrier?

Need to get your DQ in - it's your opportunity to have a say in what happens next!

It should then transfer to local court, who will look at the DQs and determine next actions.

Fairly self-explanatory and there are guidance notes on the site here.

My Asset/Link/Kearns case was reviewed a couple of weeks ago after transferring to local court and they have been ordered to provide a new CPR-compliant Particulars of Claim, Original Agreement, Deed of Assignment and Notice of Assignment. They have six weeks to comply or it's struck out. As with your case they are relying on a generic print out of an agreement with no personal details or signature.

Don't give the courts a chance to make any decisions without your input and get that N180/N181 in!

Your call as to whether you want mediation - given the lack of evidence from them there is probably no point as you can't mediate an account that appears not to exist.

Thank you. 

I have filled them out, about to post. D1 answered as 'No' as per dx100uk's reply.

Does it make any difference that Kearns haven't filled any of my copy of the N180 out other than the 'CNBC' and the claim reference, out of interest?
