    • Please go back and read my message posted at 10:27 this morning @jk2054. I didn't say that I wasn't going to provide documents, only that I will upload them to an online repo that I am in control of, and that I would share links to these. You shall still be able to read and download them no different from if they were hosted here. And, the issue I have is not so much with hosting, but using an online pdf editor to create a multi-page pdf, again I have discussed this that same message.
    • Thanks ,DX, I'd forgpotton about that letter and can't remember sending a SB letter. I must have left it and they did not chase. Unclebulgia. Yes several periods of no contact. Think its time for the SB letter . 
    • well if your not going to upload documents because you are too scared of your data being stolen and someone rocking up to you we are going to struggle to help you peoples energy data breach has nothing to do with a hosting site...

    • 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.

Unihomes student Split Util Provider/BW Legal - sent debt letter for over £3000


Recommended Posts

I live in a student house, with 5 tenants, unihomes is our utilities provider, who we each have a direct debit set up with and have paid each bill every month.

 

Two letters were sent in my name by BWLegal saying I had two outstanding payments due adding up to over £3500, I have tried to contact british gas (as that is apparently our houses provider) as well as Unihomes.

Nothing has helped and BWlegal are pursuing legal action if these debts are not resolved by the 1st May. What do I do?

 

I've called Bwlegal when i bring up that the debt isnt for me and for unihomes they hang up on me. so I am stressed and do not know what to do

First, stop calling BWLegal.

Have they sent you a letter of claim?

It'll be best to scan and redact what you've been sent and upload it here for us to have a look.

We could do with some help from you.

look at the letter CAREFULLY...it doesn't say WILL anywhere

same a stupid powerless Debt Collector letters.

ANY LEGAL POWERS.

Same company that tried to get us to pay 6 months worth of Utility bills after we had already moved out of that home.

Turns out they just searched the phone book for the name of the previous tenant (us) and decided to threaten us, because why not! British gas were useless and it took a S.A.R  and 4 separate live chats to get them to stop the threats.

I advise you do not deal with BWI at all and completely ignore them (unless they send a letter of claim, which they won't). NEVER call them, the number is premium. Go via british gas only. Get them to confirm in writing that you do not not owe them anything, and get them to stop BWI letters. It will probably take multiple attempts.

Finally stop worrying here and now. You paid your bills, this debt is not yours, and there is no entity in this world who can make you pay what you do not owe.

This is nothing but a mistake by incompetent and greedy BG and their idiotic DCA.

What is the £3500 debt based on, estimated or actual readings? You may have all been paying an amount each month by direct debit but that may not have covered your usage so you still owe a debt. 

If you are joint tenants for the property, all five of you have joint and several liability for any debt owed so you alone can be pursued for the full amount or they can pursue all of you for the full amount. 

You need to find out whether or not British Gas has billed you correctly and the amount claimed is correct.
