    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • 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 there

I have a possession hearing coming up in under 10 days and I only received the notice yesterday with the postage stamp date for the day before, giving us less than 14 days to sort out a solution with our mortgage provider.

The hearing is due to the arrears accumulated during the pandemic, our monthly contractual payments are all up to date for the last 5 months all on time, no late payments and the arrears have not increased since.

I have spoken to the mortgage provider over the last 2 days and they are willing to set up an arrangement for the arrears over a maximum of 30 months only, the arrears are just over £19K and works out higher than our contractual payment itself!

I have been trying to get them to extend the repayment term for the arrears but they are saying 24-30mths is their usual policy but this is only doable with the help of additional funds from the family, to which I have said that this policy is old and not right for what’s happening in the market today with the mortgage crisis and a lot has changed over the last 2yrs, policies need to adapt with what’s happening today, and according to the media banks will look at each case individually.  

My query is that will I be risking it to attend this 10mins hearing that has been arranged to try and get the judge to extend the repayment term for the arrears? 
 

Thanks

Roland

Hi Honeybee

Thank you for replying and flagging this to Ellen.

I had a few health issues in the past and fell into arrears during that period, Natwest have a policy where you can capitalise arrears once every 5yrs, which is what i did back then.

I have just over a year remaining in order for me to try and capitalise again, to which I have asked to do it now but they have said they won't do it even as an exception earlier than 5yrs, again an old policy of theirs. 

Regards,

Roland

Thanks for that info.  The reason I asked is because there is case law (Cheltenham & Gloucester v Norgan) which is a precedent for asking the court to consider payment of the arrears to be spread over the remaining term of the mortgage in order to make repayment affordable (although spreading over 22 years may be asking a bit too much of the court)  you can also use s.36 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970.

How much could you comfortably afford to pay towards the arrears each month in addition to the normal monthly payment ?   for example £150 towards arrears would clear them in around 11 years,  £200 would be around 8 years.

I can help you with a defence statement for the court hearing if you need me to ?

OK,   have you received an N11M defence form  in the court documents you received ? (I will give you instructions for filling it in).

Could you please answer the following questions so I can start to draft the defence statement:

Is the mortgage in joint names ?

Are there any children living in the property?

What was the reason for the arrears?

Are you able to work with Word documents?  and have a printer?

What is the date of the hearing?  and are you able to physically take documents to the court ?

I will come back to you tomorrow when I have all the above info  if that's OK ?

Hi Ellen

Thank you for getting back to me, appreciate it.

Yes I do have the ——— Forms which were sent in the original claim in Jan ‘23 but the hearing was adjourned with liberty to restore for a year only. The original claim was issued as a miscommunication with the solicitors & Natwest, we were in midst of sorting out the arrears directly with Natwest and our account was on hold, but the solicitors requested a date for the hearing which was then adjourned. 

We were in midst of sorting out a variation deal where we extended the term for our mortgage to free up some money to put towards the arrears. This all went through but took until end of March for them to implement it, which they apologised yesterday for but no one got back to me regarding sorting the arrears after the variation was completed which is what should have happened.... we continued to pay our mortgage Direct Debit every month since Jan ‘23 with no missed payment and the arrears have not increased since. I have NOT spoken with the Legal team at Natwest but the financial support team who only have the authority to set a plan for 30mths maximum.... 

The letter I received couple of days ago was to restore the hearing with a date and I have attached the order, as can be seen it’s less than 14 days they have given us to sort it out.

Thanks for the info - it makes sense now.  As there is no N11M   we will submit a defence with a financial statement.  I have affixed the budget sheet we use in these situations,  it calculates automatically as you fill it in.    Make sure you put your name(s) and the case number at the top (case number will be on court documents).  

If possible you should print out proof of all monthly payments being made from Jan this year.

Do you have anything in writing from the lender stating they want the arrears paid back quickly it would be good to have a copy of that to show the judge.

Thanks Ell-een.

My partner had a chat with Natwest today as we were not happy about the way they reinstated the possession hearing in the midst of setting up a repayment plan, and that we have had no correspondence or calls regarding the hearing from Natwest or their Solicitors. Natwest apologised and have said they would look into the matter and will get back to me on Monday, as they agree this should not have happened and the order doesn't give sufficient time scales. I will update you on Monday.

Yes the N11M form was only with the original claim which i never filled in as the hearing was adjourned as mentioned in my previous post.

Thank you for helping with the defence and sending the budget sheet calculator.

I will print off the monthly payments to my mortgage since January as proof.

I don't have anything in writing/email regarding the payment arrangement they are offering me of 30mths, i will request this from them on Monday.

Hi,

I will start to draft a defence statement and get it to you asap.   I think you should definitely take the statement to the court on Monday just in case Natwest drag their heels and don't cancel - no point in waiting to see what they do, at least you will have lodged your defence and the court will send a copy to them - that might make them have a re-think.

Hi,  affixed is your statement for court - you need to fill in the boxes at the top (the info will be on court letter).

On the budget sheet and your list of payments since January make sure you write your names and Case number at the top of those documents.

Print out the statement (set printer for A4 not letter size) and make sure it all stays on one page  - then sign and date.

Affix the budget sheet and payment list to the statement securely before handing in to the court office (take a copy of it all for yourselves so you have one to refer to in the hearing).

When you hand it in to the court ask if there are any duty legals there on the day of your hearing - if so you should get to the court a little early and approach them to ask for their assistance - they can accompany you into the hearing and give support to your case.

Any questions just shout :)

Great - don't forget to keep us updated.  If by any chance Natwest say they will cancel the hearing, you should ring the court to confirm as lenders have a bad habit of "forgetting" to follow it through and if you didn't turn up at the hearing they would get a possession order by default - I'm afraid you just can't trust them :(

Hi

I spoke with Natwest and they have confirmed that the hearing has been adjourned and were confused as to who had requested the hearing as it wasn't Natwest or their solicitors?... I then rang the court and there was an issue getting into the system and I was told that someone will call me tomorrow morning to confirm.

The court has confirmed that they have received an email from the claimant stating that both parties agree to have the case adjourned with liberty to restore.

The court informed me that the hearing will still go ahead and the letter from the claimant will be put on file for the judge to see, I was also told I could email the court if there is anything i would like to put forward to the judge.

I haven't taken the statement to court.
