    • 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.

Backdoor Link CCJ - old Barclaycard debt - Default Judgment set a side Sanctions imposed. **STRUCK OUT**


Recommended Posts

Asset Link filed for a default CCJ against me, in relation to an old Barclaycard debt which I apparently signed an agreement for back in 2000.   

I did not own a Barclaycard in 2000 so I know this is not true. 

The CCJ notice was sent to an old address so I did not receive it. 

Years later when I found out about the CCJ when I applied for credit, I put an application in to have the CCJ set aside.   

As part of the set aside case, I was asked by the judge to provide a draft defence, should the CCJ be set aside.   The defence I provided was that I did not admit to the debt as I had not been provided with any evidence of an original loan agreement.   

I won the case and the CCJ was set aside. Link then filed to court again to make me pay the debt. We both filed directions questionnaires and the judge allocated the claim to the small claims track.

As part of the directions, additional directions given were as follows '

Additional Directions in a claim for an Assigned Debt - Because the claim is in respect of an assigned debt the Court makes the following directions for the management of claim.  The claim shall be automatically struck out at 4pm on 3 April 2024 unless, before that time, the Claimant delivers to the Court and to the Defendant the following documents'  It then listed various documents such as an original agreement, deed of assignment, notice of default, statement of account setting out how the alleged debt accrued under that agreement etc.     

The Claimant failed to provide these documents within the deadline provided and instead I received a copy of a bundle of documents provided by them in preparation for the court date, this was received weeks after the deadline.

I have called the Court to ask if it has been automatically struck out and they advised that it is not automatic and that I should still send my witness statement by the deadline provided, which is Wednesday. 

This does not give me much time to prepare my witness statement.   

I have never done anything like this before and I am unclear what my witness statement should include. 

My thoughts were that I should keep it simple and stick to the facts, like the fact thy have not provided evidence of the original agreement, or the deed of assignment of the debt.   They have provided a copy of a default notice from Baclaycard dated 2015, this states a figure of £550 but the debt they say I owe is £10k.   I am not sure what makes a valid default notice?   

I have previously requested proof of the debt from Barclaycard directly and have evidence of emails between us where they have been unable to provide me with the agreement or any documents at all relating to the debt.   

Should I include these as an appendix? 

Are there any other documents I should include in my bundle?   

I have also tried to mediate with the claimants, to save the court costs and time, on a without prejudice basis, but the claimants solicitors refused to mediate.   

Should i state this in my witness statement too to show the judge that I have been reasonable and they haven't?

Many thanks

 

Louise

Yes, you should have applied for an immediate strike out as soon as the deadline expired.

Without the agreement, they are stuffed

Forget Barclaycard, Asset link is now the creditor, and it is down to them to provide the agreement. 

That needs to go into the witness statement. They have not provided the agreement contrary to directions of the court and request the court strike out the claim as to the original court directions.

Hi,

If they haven't followed the court's directions there will be little tolerance of the court.

Anyway please can you upload a copy of the court paperwork

If the agreement was allegedly taken out in 2000 and you state you do not recall it or even if you did...do you recall making payments ?

You state it use to appear on your credit files but no longer...did you never question why if not your debt ? 

If you never made any payments (someone made payments up until 2015) and cant recall a credit card with a balance of 8K+ 

Strange ?

We could do with some help from you.

dont forget barclaycard traded under many differing names and also bought out many small CC companies since 2000. so it could have been a diff card, but is now the old Co. is now part of BC, hence Link stating so...sadly Link are masters at doing this and purposefully hide such details as it's not really their problem what the card org was granted by.

so what credit cards DID you have in 2000? era

I have a feeling that it might have been an Egg card that was then taken over by Barclays because I remember having an Egg card back around that time as it was the first credit card I took out when I was young

Yes BC did get the Egg accounts and also MSDW (Morgan Stanley Dean Witter accounts)....so moving forward you need to attack the credit agreement within your statement.

The reconstituted standard BC agreement does not satisfy any CCA request and cannot be a copy of an Egg agreement so throw in that the claimant is and remains in default of your CCA request and therefore unable to enforce the alleged agreement.

Reconstituted agreements do not satisfy any agreement that have been modified or assigned.

Still that still does not explain who was making payments up until 2015....considerable amounts on the the size of the debt.

in terms of the draft witness statement I uploaded, what do you suggest I amend?

And do I need to send the bundle of docs as per the first page?

They are the same docs that the claimant included.   

when I rang the court to ask if it had been automatically struck out, they suggested I sent a covering letter with my witness statement stating that the claimants failed to comply with the directions and therefore the case should be struck out. 

Apologies for the short responses today, I have been in work all day so have had to duck out of meetings and respond to you on my mobile. 

I am feeling extremely overwhelmed by all of this, it has been hanging over me for over 3 years now since I first discovered the CCJ on my file.   

I am a single mum of two little ones so really struggling to find my way through this. 

I paid a solicitor to help me set the CCJ aside and it used up every penny of my savings to so. 

I can't afford to pay for anymore legal help but feel completely out of my depth. 

My witness statement needs to be with the court and claimant by Wednesday and I am terrified of getting it wrong and losing after everything they have put me through.   

I really appreciate all of your posts, and would be so so thankful if you could help me finalise my witness statement to ensure I have got all of my points across and that I have not included anything that could go against me.

Thank you

This is my slightly amended WS taking on board your previous comments, any suggestions for amendments would be most appreciated.  Thank you for you time.

1.        I am the Defendant in this matter.

2.        The facts in this statement come from my personal knowledge.

3.        I became aware of original Judgement following a routine credit check on or around 14th September 2020.

4.        The alleged Letter of Claim dated 7 January 2020 was served to a previous address which I moved out of in 2018, no effort was made to ascertain my correct address.

5.        The Judgement debt was not familiar to me so I began investigations to ascertain what the debt related to and how such a figure had been equated in any event.

6.        I made immediate contact with the Court, the Claimant Solicitors and the Claimants thereafter, asking them to provide me with a copy of the original loan agreement but this was not provided to me. 

7.        I sent a Data Subject access Request to Barclays but no agreement was provided – See appendix 1 which details the timeline of communication between myself and Barclaycard as well as copies of correspondence between us.

8.        I do not admit to entering an agreement with Barclaycard in 2000.

9.       The claimant has failed to comply with the additional directions ordered by District Judge Davis and therefore this claim should be automatically struck out.

 10.    The claimants have failed to disclose a true executed copy of the original agreement they refer to within the particulars of this claim. They are not entitled to enforce the agreement pursuant to section 78.6 (a) of the Credit Consumer Act 1974

12.   The reconstituted standard Barclaycard agreement that the claimant has included in the court bundle does not satisfy any CCA request and so the claimant is and remains in default of my CCA request and therefore unable to enforce the alleged agreement.

13.  The claimants have failed to provide proof the assignment, such as a deed of assignment.

14.  The claimant has failed to provide a statement of account setting out how the alleged debt accrued under that agreement

15.   Despite numerous requests to the claimant, I have still not seen any evidence, such as an original agreement or deed of assignment, that substantiates the claimant’s assertion that I owe the debt to the claimant, nor evidence of how the debt was accrued.

16.   As per CPR 1.4(2)(a) the court encourages parties to cooperate with each other in the conduct of proceedings in order to try and save time and costs for the parties and to also save the time and resources of the court however, despite vast attempts at mediation the claimants have been most unreasonable and have remained unwilling to mediate.

I believe that the facts stated in this Witness Statement are true.  I understand that proceedings for contempt of court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.
