    • i ordered from carreg and i got my paperwork today v750 and the nominee detail shows last name as arnold my name isnt arnold    it even shows on my invoice that is not arnold    i emailed them about it but properly wont get a reply today but im guessing if i was to assign this private reg to my car i cant because my last name isnt arnold and i dont want to risk assigning it to my car and end up with new v5 saying arnold as then that will make my insurance void 
    • That's the point. I am arguing that the works costs should never have been incurred. That they should not be added to my account at all - which means not taking the costs out of eventual sale proceeds.  Vat should have been added to the contractor's invoices and the lender should have paid - out of their pocket.  The property was in great condition; immaculate.  It's a silly situation. 
    • Thanks dx.  His situation has unfortunately got complicated and I can't (unofficially) help anymore.  He can't pay for anything.  He has funds. But his account was temp blocked for some silly reason.  He is too unwell to call them.  And, of course, they won't talk to me or unblock it.  There's all sorts of bills to pay and none are being paid. I was worried the council may try get a charging order.  At the moment they seem to have just got lots of liability orders.  The bailiff letters are threatening.

    • as much as i admire you thoughts and 'logic', CAB at the best of times rarely get things 100% right. a time order (<<click the link) cost about £50 i think and will nail MB in their box being forced to accept the on going payments going forward. thats it that simple. arguing a 'paperwork wriggles' is all very well and good, but they only have to prove a DN was sent (not produce it, nor prove it was ever received) uand thats not a hard job.  with regard to no signed credit agreement etc, again, that will be easy to prove otherwise, esp as the defendant quite happily had the car for XX years and xx months, quite happy paid ....never once querying any enforceability issues till today. should you go down that route, ok she would get to keep the car for free and get all her payments back...but even with MB, as much as i hate them, it's a big hill to climb.  MB rarely fail upon their paperwork. they might be sharks, they might try and make up rules as they go along...but this time they've raised a return of goods and a money order, they ain't that stupid to not know they have the cards to succeed. do a time order. get 'em next time. dx

    • 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.

NORTHSIDE CAR & COMMERCIAL LTD - DONCASTER Dealer being awkward refunding deposit **Settled**


Recommended Posts

Evening all

My wife went to view a 25,000 mile vehicle at a dealers in Doncaster last week. I couldn’t go as I was at work. She’s owned a few trucks in her time, so is fairly conversant with them

I’d found it for her on the web, checked out the photos, called the dealer who assured me it was ‘stunning’. It says as much in their advert

I specifically asked about the underside, which he said was also excellent.

After viewing the truck, my wife left a deposit by bank transfer. She also transferred £money for car tax, which was done by the dealer with a receipt to prove so.

On collection two days later, I found the vehicle to be woefully substandard. Areas of damage had been repainted with a brush (!) and the underneath was plagued with serious rot.

The dealer said he couldn’t refund me our deposit as the boss was on holiday and it would need his approval.

He then went on to say I was a time waster, I knew nothing about vehicles, that I was being intimidating (which is utter tripe) 

He added they had incurred costs getting the vehicle ready for collection - yet more guff

I have since sent an email recapping the event and asking for the deposit and the tax to be refunded. We have evidence of payment by bank transfer and also a bill of sale from the garage.

Needless to say we left without the truck!

Can anyone please advise us from how to proceed?

Thank you

Some advice on buying a used car - General Consumer Tips and Guidance - Consumer Action Group

opps paid by bank transfer 1st big mistake. Little or no protection via your bank in getting that back.

2nd is you've not named the dealer..why?

3rd big mistake , they now have the truck too..big bargaining chip gone there.

have you invoked your right in this email to reject the truck quoting the consumer rights act?

dx

 

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...

Thanks for your response DX. Much appreciated

 

Yes, bank transfer not ideal. I suspect the dealer knows this.

Not sure how not taking the truck is a ‘big mistake’. I’d have paid more  to take it and been left with a truck I don’t want …

My letter didn’t quote consumer rights act. If I haven’t received a refund within 7 working days from the date on the email, then I’ll go through the Small Claims Court

  • BankFodder changed the title to NORTHSIDE CAR & COMMERCIAL LTD - DONCASTER Dealer being awkward refunding deposit

Send them a letter of claim straightaway. No point hanging around. Given 14 days in the letter of claim and if they haven't paid you by then, issue the claim on day 15.

The amount of time is more than adequate for them to get going.

Post your draft letter of claim here. A look at. Then log onto the MoneyClaim website and start preparing your claim and post your particulars of claim here for us to have a look at.

Don't bluff. No point in it.
