    • Dont expect instant resolution of 14 years of poopulist party, personal and vipal excess .. but I do believe that starmer will quickly start significant delivery of change - and deliver in the long run   They need to deliver to prevent a massive rebound away from them.   Lets remember - it took the torys a couple of years to trash the country and its reputation although they worked hard on it from day one. I expect no less in timescales, and a lot more in effort and application in Starmers resolution to the tory poop abuses.
    • True, but all the threads we have for Wise concern hospital car park parking (except one) so it would suggest a hospital car park.
    • Don't worry, a week and a half is fine, especially as you've already drafted a WS. However, we need to see everything as dx says in the post above.
    • This preliminary hearing has been allocated 20 minutes so it should be fairly simple. However, judges are always on the look-out to get cases settled and sometimes these things can mushroom unexpectedly, so I would take along all the paperwork in order and prepare too much rather than too little. For example, we have a recent case where someone went to a preliminary hearing but the judge was appalled by the parking company's case and put huge pressure on their solicitor to discontinue - which he did. I have personal experience of trotting along to a preliminary hearing, only for the judge to go ballistic at the other side's solicitor who promptly dropped the whole case against me. I suggest your Mum takes these notes along and refers to them when necessary.   1.  I sent Parking Eye a Subject Access Request on 03/07/2023.  After one calendar month they had not replied. 2.  Their failure caused me a great deal of distress.  I was desperately trying to prepare for a court case and I felt they were hiding information from me. 3.  However, I did not rush to court, I sent a Letter of Claim on 03/08/2023 giving them an extension.  Again they did not reply.  So I started this court case. 4.  Parking Eye insist I have proof of postage for everything I sent - and I do.  5.  Parking Eye eventually satisfied my Subject Access request at the end of August 2023.  I believe they put a false date on their letter to pretend to have satisfied the one-calendar month deadline.  I believe they will have no proof of postage. 6.  In April Parking Eye sent me a letter to try to settle the matter, which offered me nothing.  7.  Later I sent them a letter offering to settle and asking them to offer a serious amount, not nothing, but they did not reply. 8.  I would be willing to settle out of court, but not on the basis that they offer me nothing.

    • 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.

I am very concerned, I now have 9 days to pat yet another £100 to the court to proceed with my claim. HSBC put in a defence on the 22nd of December and I have heard nothing from DG solicitors, I keep checking the post everyday as it seems that other claimants have recieved settlemnt offers as soon as the defence has been submitted. I am really worried that I am going to end up in court. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do now? I am feeling a little lost, and I really could do without paying another £100.

I assume DG Solicitors are representing HSBC.

 

If you have submitted your Allocation Questionnaire (AQ) to the court and may be responded to the defence statement, then the court will notify you and the defendant of a court hearing date showing allocation of the claim track, normally small claims track if claiming below £5000.

 

The court will send you a hearing date after receiving the AQ you submitted and that of the defendant. Before the actual hearing, the DG Solicitors could settle but they may wait until a day before the court date. Do not be afraid. If you follow the process correctly, DG Solicitors would not want to challenge you in court.

 

Good luck.

Hi

 

Don't panic, you will get the extra £100 back you have to pay out. It seems as though some of the banks are waiting until the day before the hearing before they pay out in the hope of panicking people and putting them off. I'm sure it will be fine.

I have not yet sent back the AQ, I have until the 17th to send it back, the problem is that the court want another £100 is this usual? Also is there a normal time frame for the court date once they have recieved the paperwork? I am wondering if I should bite the bullet and send back the paperwork with the £100, or see if DG solicitors settle beforehand.

It is normal practice of the court to ask for £100 if the money you are claiming exceeds £1500.

 

Make sure you fill the AQ correctly following the process in the library. Do not wait until the 17th because the earlier you return the form to the court with your payment the better. The court can then set a hearing date and notify you and the defendant.

 

Your £100 will be paid back as part of your claims by the defendant for court cost.

 

Good luck.

Kathryn,

I cannot guarantee the speed with the behaviour of these banks. It is good idea to send them a copy and also include one copy with your AQ to the court.

 

I hope you have seen the new updated strategy for AQ. If not read the link below:

That's really helpful just a couple of questions. Has anyone succesfully used this yet? Also on C) Statement of evidence - Is there anywhere I could get help with this? And on D) Copies of decided cases- Where would I get these from? I would be slightly worried about using this at the moment as it means alot more work, and I don't know if I am entirely confident about being a Guinea pig!

Hi everyone, I have put my AQ form into the court this morning with yet another £100. They have told me that I am unlikely to get a court date until the end of March, obviously I really want my money as soon as possible. Has anyone had any recent dealings with DG solicitors? I would like to know what the current trend is, at what point are they paying out? Am I likely to be waiting until the end of March to recieve anything? Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

Kathryn,

 

I would suggest that you don't use 'as soon as possible' when dealing with any bank. They would delay for as long as possible. Although you will eventually get your money, you cannot determine the actual date because the banks and their solicitors are trying to hold out to the last minute.

 

Now that you have submitted your own AQ, the banks will have to submit their own as well. They often wait to the last date to submit their own to the court. They may not contact you to settle until court hearing is set or until few days before actual hearing.

 

I am not trying to scare you Kathryn. I just want you to be aware of what the banks and their solicitors are doing to try to escape. But they will not escape if you are determined.

 

It will be over soon.

Hi again, I phoned DG solicitors yesterday to ask what was happening with my case, as I am expecting to get the court date through by the end of the week. I was told that the claim was still with the client (HSBC) and it would be another 7 days before they got direction on what to do! Are they fobbing me off? I informed them that I will be calling again next Monday. Just wondering if any one has any ideas on what I can say if they tell me the same thing again (which I am expecting they will). Is there any way to put on any more pressure?

Hi

 

DG Solicitors will eventually pay up in full about 2 weeks from Court date. You don't need to be ringing or getting in touch with them Kathryn, just be patient and you will get all your claim back even though they will try every method to put you off !!

Regards

kathryn, just wondering if you've heard anything? i think it being with the client means it won't be long - i'm really keeping a good thought for you - thurs, fri, and sat. seem to bring in offers from dg - i'm pulling for one for you on thurs. also, would like to know - for reference - when you hear anything from the court. i'm betting dg will cough up before you get a court date set.

It seems to take so long to get money back. They've got till the 4th to submit a defence for my claim. I started this process in October! It just takes so long doesn't it!

 

I'd be interested to hear how you get on as it might give me an idea of how long mine will take to go through. I was hoping for the money in March sometime, so I hope it doesn't take much longer than that! I really could do with it to avoid more bank charges!!

:) Won the following claims thanks to this site...

 

£250.00 RBS - after 2nd letter

 

£140.00 First Direct - after 2nd letter

 

£393.32 Alliance and Leicester - filed claim on MCOL and they paid up within 2 weeks

 

£2218.28 HSBC (for hubbie) - filed claim on MCOL and they paid up after 3 weeks

 

:D nothing more to claim now and O/D and Credit Card paid off with proceeds of claims.

i won't bore you with my son's claim as it was completed back in october and that is all completely out of date info - due to the huge number of claims and dg's seeming inability to keep on top of the situation. good luck - i'm watching your thread with interest!

I have spoken to DG again today and they say that it is still with the client, apparently they have a huge backlog at the moment and so it is taking longer. The lady at DG was very nice though and very apologetic for the fact that she could not give me any further information. I am hoping that the court date will arrive by the end of the week, if not I will give the court a ring on Monday and ask what is happening. I will keep you updated if anything happens!

kathryn, just thinking - your aq was due the 17th - and it's in. did they file their aq? it would be worth a call to the court to find out - if they did not - they have defaulted by now and as such you should be asking for a judgment - certainly worth a call to the court on monday to find out if they have filed their aq. get back also if you need help with what you need to send next - it's pretty simple - just need to follow some links.

so, if they still have not filed their aq - (what second deadline did the court give?) if it has passed - would not their defense be struck out and now you must enter a Judgement in Default. To enter Judgment in Default you will need to obtain a Form from the court, this is known as a "Request for Judgment" Form.

 

The form you need is an N225, here http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/H...forms_id =465

 

Complete this and file it with the court where you filed your claim

 

That's if they have missed the deadline given by the court. do you think you could ring the court and ask?

 

this course would make the offer unappealing, yes?

lats, what happens if you have sent off the aq and all that business and they make a final offer that isn't 100%? - what other route is there to go?

  • Haha 1

If i've been helpful in any way....then tip my scales over there!

if they don't file their aq - their defense is struck out (sometimes the judge gives them extra time and they still don't file their aq) so, you win.

 

their full and final offers are never their full and final offers if you reject them - they eventually come back with more.

 

the idea of the aq is to put it into the right court track - but dg doesn't want to go - because they would have to show their costs and all and they aren't prepared to do it. so, sometimes (often actually) they just don't file their aq , but if they did, next step would be a court date being set. and crusher and the other's say - they still will settle before that.

OK? answer your question?

 

kathryn, did they say why they are offering 400 less than the full offer - was it that they were questioning some charges or questioning overdraft interest or what? my instincts tell me it is the same old ploy they have been using right along, just reject it, tell them you require xxxx.xx to halt the claim and be sure you add the aq filing fee.
