    • 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 Claimform - old Cap1 Debt


Recommended Posts

 

after a lot o reading the following is my defence statement  as I understand it I need to respond to all points in the particulars  

Any help would be appreciated 

DEFENCE 

1) aa claim for money , the burden
of proof in any allegation to the amount of money claimed to be owed remains with the claimant . And be proved unless the defendant Denies it. I deny all allegations made by the claimant 
Therefore, the Claimant Is required to prove the allegation that the money is owed as claimed.
The Claimants particulars of case 
Does not give sufficient information to enable me to properly assess and defend the claim.


2)The Claimants particulars of claim states that the account was assigned from capital one to on 18/03/2021. I do not recall receiving notice of this assignment. A request for this has been under the consumer credit act to the claimant on17/05/2024 And I am awaiting a reply. 

3) Similarly to the above point I do not recall being served with a Default notice by capital one as required by s87 Consumer Credit Act 1974.
The Claimant is required to prove that a compliant Default Notice was served on the Defendant
And also required to prove that the any Default notice relied upon complied with the requirements of s88(4A) Consumer Credit Act 1974 and it is in a prescribed form 
A request under has been made to the claimant’s solicitor on 17/05:2024 under CPR 31:14 and I am waiting for a reply 



4) The consumer credit act also makes it incumbent upon the creditor to send regular statement of accounts to a debtor. Again I do not recall receiving these
A request for this information has also been made under CPR31:14 on 17/05/2024… and I am awaiting a reply

5) As no documents that have been requested from the claimant have yet been received by me I ask the court for more time to receive and inspect the documents and have the opportunity to mount a more thorough defence

1. the claim is for sum of 1650£ due by the defendant under an agreement regulated by the consumer credit act 1974 for capital one account with an account reference of xxxx

2. the dependent failed to maintain contractual payments required by the agreement and a default notice was served under s87(1) of the consumer credit act 1973 which has not been complied with

3. the debt was legally assigned to the claimant on 18-03-21 notice of which has been given to defendant 

4. the claim incudes statutory interest under s69 of the county court act 184 at a rate of 8%per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue of these proceedings in the sum of 132£

the claimant claims the sum of 1782£

defence.

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

1. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1PAPDC.

2. The Claimant claims £xxxxxx is owed under a regulated consumer credit account under reference xxxxxxxxx. I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant and the claimants solicitor by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request who are yet to fully comply.

3. Paragraph 2 is denied. I am unable to recall the precise details of the alleged agreement or any default notice served in breach of any defaulted payments.

4. Paragraph 3 is denied. The Defendant contends that no notice of assignment pursuant to s.136 of the Law of Property Act & s.82 A of the CCA1974 has ever been served by the Claimant as alleged or at all.

5. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and
(b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice  pursuant to sec87(1) of the CCA1974; and
(c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and
(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

6. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. 

7. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

8. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.

9. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief

Should the amount be the figure in the particulars or the final figure with the added fees

Can confirm this is exactly what they did to me, 3 weeks before I actually received it from the court.  Also they will gaslight you by producing letters that were never sent.

Oh so they invent documents ?

so for example if they invented a default notice will the courts ask them to prove it’s been served by way of proof of postage or will the courts just take their word for it?

obviously you've not been reading lowell claimform threads yet here then....:pound:

a DN is not 'served' by the original creditor. just by post .

any claimant will have to prove one was sent in writing in their WS.

I have been doing a lot of reading but the intricacies of legalities is not always obvious to someone like me  and it’s a lot to take in for someone new to this

how else is it served? 

by that it seems you are saying that they will need proof of postage or will a judge accept that on the balance of probabilities a large company will likely to have sent it?

in law...served means P2P. 

a DN is not 'served' it's sent by surface POST by the original creditor.

no they dont need proof of posting, only some record from the OC one was sent within account data, typically the comms log.
