    • Another one. Top Tory placed dozens of bets on the election date. It looks as if he kept them under £100, thinking they wouldn't be investigated, but the Gambling Commission is looking at potential winnings as well as the size of the bet. How many more are there? https://archive.ph/StZqL
    • Calm Down please.... there is only one way to deal with this and that is - PROPERLY. Being surrounded by 'lawyers' who deal with 'disputes', just like going to the likes of CAB, in this instance has, most probably, to date,  sadly not helping you here. Such people always project an Aura of confidence, when the truth is they don't actually have the vast successful experience of the members here in dealing with the likes BMW. there are over 350 threads here . as far i gather this is the situation, In April, a car was purchased by your son from BMW. Finance taken out to purchase it has since been paid in full, as well as full payment for an annual Insurance policy. within 6 weeks, it was discovered and confirmed in writing, via a report from a local garage, that the car indeed had numerous performance modifications undertaken. Namely being remapped and with modifications to the exhaust system. having contacted his ins co, they require a further £5k to uprate his policy, without it renders the existing insurance policy invalid, thus the car is not being driven.  again within this 6 weeks, you wrote to BMW rejecting the car (we need to see this letter please. scan it up to PDF, please read our UPLOAD guide). at first BMW were onboard, even sending their own inspector, confirming the mods etc. but in the last 9 days since said inspection, comms have now gone dead. .................. you have 2 options - 1 - allow BMW to sort the car FOC and without hassle to him, but probably within their own snails pace timeframe. 2- EVENTUALLY bring legal action - this would most probably be under contract law, not a claim under the consumer rights act . (as financially you would lose out big time) to do 2. which is not easy and rather complex to calculate the financial sum involved...... we need all the info @BankFodder has requested. of many, but one good reason for this is say for this new mot, show the old one was suspect, good bargaining chip against 2500mls usage deductions... your call but you need to do this properly or not at all...............    
    • Hi, I've been reading through many of the stories in the sub-forum and I understand the process to be to send a Letter of Claim to the EVRi - in the post and to their customer support email and to sign up for MCOL.  I have looked at the various Letters of Claim and the MCOL claim forms - particulars of claim and I have gone through all of the screens on MCOL website to put in the final details so it is ready to go after the 14 days from when I send the Letter of Claim (of course assuming that EVRi dismisses my Letter of Claim to pay me in full!).  I also see the advise is to decline any mediation particularly because I have specified the parcel contents and value to EVRi when shipping it. I have put both the Letter of Claim and the forms from the MCOL particulars of claim into a single PDF for review.  The stories in the sub-forum often indicate people shipping with EVRi but some purchase through or have involved such companies as Parcel2Go and so I wasn't sure about the statement I made in the Letter of Claim if it was totally accurate to say "I am applying my third party rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999"? I just wanted to confirm the correct wording.  In my case the parcel shipment was paid for on the EVRi website and sent at the Tesco EVRi Parcelshop.  On the MCOL claim form I have referenced Section 57 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 in response to EVRi customer service hiding behind their lack of ability to insure delivery of laptops and their bogus non-compensated and prohibited items as a means to avoid any responsibility for them losing such items. Thank you for taking a look to see if there are any inaccuracies or amendments to the Letter of Claim - when it is looking good I will send via email and post it to EVRi.  Having drafted the particulars of the claim on MCOL, I shall be ready to submit the claim on the MCOL site when the 14 day period has elapsed and proceed from there.   Thanks for everyone's help!

    • Wow quite surprised by your response in all honesty as I can’t see where you have requested details of the car. The car is insured and that was budgeted for and paid in full, the increase of £5k is because of the modifications, which no we didn’t budget for as we didn’t plan to buy a modified car, so no that doesn’t form any part of wanting to return the car, perhaps you don’t understand the impact modifications have on insurance premiums? Thanks for your help so far but feel going the legal route probably suits us better.

    • 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.

Lowell/Overdales CCJ - court ordered £PCM payment - missed 3mts - now paid - threat of further action from overdales


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if someone can offer some advice.

Before I knew about this forum I ended up with a CCJ.

I agreed a payment of X per month with the Court and it was agreed and that payment has been kept up to date, except for a period last year from Sep to Dec #

whereby I was held on suspicion of a crime in Norway (later acquitted I might add) but for 3 months and as such had no way of maintaining the payments each month with no access to be able to make the transfers to them.

When I returned, I paid the 3 months I was behind and have since continued to maintain the payments that was agreed by the Court originally.

I have never received any notification or demand from the Court regarding the period I was unable to pay and haven't to date.

However, I received this below by email today - not sure how they got my email but perhaps from this original debt as the Original creditor may have passed it on to them. Any thoughts on this please?

"The County Court Judgment (CCJ) granted on 11-2018 remains unpaid therefore our client is considering enforcement action.

Despite sending you previous reminders, you have failed to engage with us and set up an affordable payment plan for £2444.21 which means our client could instruct us to take further action in the next 14 days.

If our client instructs us to apply for a Warrant of Control, a County Court Bailiff could visit you at home to discuss payment of the outstanding balance.

Alternatively, our client may instruct us to enforce by way of a Charging Order which will result in the Court securing the outstanding debt against any beneficial interest you hold in a property. This means our client will recover the debt when you come to sell or remortgage your property.

Our client may also request an Attachment of Earnings which will result in the Court ordering your employer to deduct payment directly from your wages.

In order to avoid this, you must either make a one-off payment of £2444.21 or set up a payment plan with us within 14 days."

so Lowell is the current debt owner?

Was the payment plan made through the courts or informally with them?

We could do with some help from you.

for lowells then.

 i could instruct my dog to sit, if it does is a totally different matter..:eyebrows:

whats the debt and when did you take it out?

and when did you last pay it?

you know the game from the info we asked you in your current claimform thread.

bottom line 

ignore them.

nothing they can do.

thats just a std threat-o-gram sent automatically by email which is a freeway to try and scare you.

the debt is >£600 so in all truth they cannot even use HCEO's but eitherway and even for a charging order, they STILL have to return to court to ASK the court to allow bailiff use or apply for a charging order, and if any of those were to be attempted, the court would write telling you giving you the opportunity to object.

 might be the best option as when its back in court you could then demand they show you the signed credit agreement  :pound:

Can't remember the original creditor now but it will have been a CC. Last payment to OC would have been a long time ago, as I recall, I think it was almost SB when they took it to CC - around 12 mths left ish. Thx, I'll wait to hear from the court then. :D

CCA regulated debts cannot be enforced by HCEO's at all now.

however even if they COULD be.

no bailiff, whatever their type, on consumer debt judgements, have ANY right to force entry ...you simple IGNORE THEM.

Thank you DX100.

I trust you are right that it is a threat o 'gram.

From what I've read, they (being Overdales) would have to prove that I have not maintained the payments agreed with the court in order to obtain the right to escalate to HCEO / Bailiff?

Obviously I can prove the payments have been made - I know I was late with approx 3 months but I checked the other day and I definitely made the payment direct to them to catch it up for the time I was physically unable to pay which at the time was out of my control as explained on my first post.

cant use HCEO's on CCA regulated debts now

so what if they do request the court to sent county court bailiffs..., you'd be advised before that and probably the very best thing to happen as then you can challenge the whole enforceability of it all.

If I may, just one more quick question after my reading fest.

After 6 years from the date of CCJ I have read that if it were to be stopped being paid then Lowell would have to re-apply to the court to enforce / extend it if it was not paid off as otherwise they have no way to enforce it?

Is that right?

I'm sorry I'm bombarding the questions and there is a point to this...

The threat o'gram received, would that likely be them being worried that the CCJ goes after Nov this year and if it was to be stopped being paid they are trying to get it cleared before that happens just in case one was to stop paying after the expiry of the CCJ?

are you seriously doing the DCA jobs for them with filling your head with stupid stuff.

a CCJ does NOT EXPIRE

its removed from credit files after 6yrs, paid or not, paying or not.

it's just much much harder for the claimant to persuade a judge to enforce it after 6yrs have elapsed should they return to court with it.

im not sure why you are bothering to do such an in depth worry session on this.

debt is not a crime in the uk.

you cant goto jail

you cant lose your home

and your grans budgie is safe from being murdered.

I know.

Overthinking it all. Apologies.

Your comment here

"it's just much much harder for the claimant to persuade a judge to enforce it after 6yrs have elapsed should they return to court with it."

is why I asked the question and hence I wondered if that is why they are now pushing with that email to try and get it cleared before the 6 year period is up and if payments were to cease.
