    • Sorry but I have been out of the loop on this for a while. I'm trying to get back and I'm going to have a closer look later on today. However from what I understand so far – and from other cases which I have looked at on the Facebook page, it seems to me that your contract is with the insurer. They are responsible for everything. I would refuse to sign anything with kinderton at this point and if they want to reply then they have to be told that your contract is with the insurer and everything will be done through them – and that you have no legal relationship with kinderton and no legal obligation and no legal responsibility towards them, kinderton. This would be my starting point. By trying to get you to sign directly with them, they are trying to establish some legal/contractual responsibility/liability to you – and as far as I can see, there is no legal basis which entitles them to do this. If this is what they want you to do – then this is certainly what you should avoid doing. If it is good for them then you can be pretty certain that it is bad for you.

    • OH has received another call from Kindertons requesting a signature. He once again requested in writing that he was not liable for any costs as he has been told from the beginning. The woman insisted he would not. He asked her hypothetically what if Kindertons take the other party to court assuming they won't pay the hire charges, who would then be liable for the court fees and hire charges would it be him? The woman who apparently sounded like she was reading from a card replied not him. An email has now been received from Kindertons. I would be grateful for advice on this matter bearing in mind no forms have been signed. Good Morning Please keep this email as confirmation that no costs will be charged to yourself for the cost of the Hire. Whilst you are liable for the hire charges Kindertons indemnifies these losses. The third party insurer will pay the hire charges and if for any reason the charges are not paid Kindertons will not pursue you for payment of these charges. The only exception is if you knowingly and wilfully mislead us or actively fail to cooperate with our attempts to recover the hire charges from the third party insurer. If you would look to sign the outstanding Hire agreement it would be gratefully received. Many thanks
    • Yes Andy. It arrived last week but I was away for a few days. I moved house in the middle of last year as well so some post is redirected which can delay things by a couple of days. I have informed the courts of my new address

    • 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 all, 

Currently dealing with the death of my step mother, she went into hospital in January and sadly past away last week,

as there was no power of attorney I couldn't update dwp, she was receiving alot of benefits and has a large sum of money in her account,

could I get help with a base letter I can send in to dwp departments explaining she went into hospital in January and I need to no how much back pay and also payments to stop, her account has been frozen so this could stop payments.

The departments are, dla, pension, sdp? Housing benefits etc, she went into hospital on the 25th January and then into a care home on 19th of June and past away on 19th august, I think only 28days is allowed?

Please accept our condolences.....normally you complete a form on registering the death but you can do it in advance,

 

WWW.GOV.UK

The steps you must take when someone dies - register a death, report a death with Tell Us Once, coroners, funerals and death abroad.

 

We could do with some help from you.

Hi, Thank you, I did do the tell us once, but it did not give me the option to tell them she had been in hospital for 6 months prior to moving to a care home, so now I'm guessing they don't know about her being in hospital,

I did register her death today and followed the instructions from the register with the Tell Us Once option

Thanks again

So you have done what you need to do, by using tell us once.

These situations will occur all of the time, where the claimant is not in any position to report changes of circumstances and there is no spouse or attorney to report changes either.

Within the benefits system, there are many exceptions built into the legislation that applies, so it is not necessarily the case that DWP would rigidly apply 28 days in hospital ends entitlement etc.

I would suggest that your only action is the tell us once action. DWP and Housing benefits will contact you if you are person to be contacted, should they need more information. The actions will relate to closing the benefits down following the death. They won't be reviewing the benefits going back to January, unless they have already been made aware of being admitted hospital, so have a process ongoing already.

We could do with some help from you.

tell us once works wonders.!!

the relevant benefits depts will write to you (eventually) about what they think is owed. ( took +2mts on most)

for my neighbour, who's situation was not too dissimilar from yours, i calculated for him she might owe everything from after 28days being in hosp as she never returned home.

when each wrote indicating 'a' sum they thought was owed , there is an address to write too on each letter.

he replied to each stating that from xx date she went into hosp, then from xx to a nursing home and that she never returned to her own home.

letters eventually came back , and my calcs were wrong , it appears none were interested in what had gone on before even though they had now been informed

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...
