    • 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.

well the forty days well and truely expired on the 6ht march for the wollwich to supply my statements and no sign of them so i called them to find out why... to my amazement i was told they had not recieved the SAR so i pointed out that it was sent recorded delivery and i have proof via royalmail.com that they have recieved it. they said that while it had been recieved they have not been passed my SAR and the attitude they show was that it was my problem that they did not have my SAR. i pointed out that they are breaking the law but they were not bothered.

 

on the 6th march i sent the LBA for non compliance and on the 8th march i recieved the Dear sir we are sorry you have had to complain blah blah blah we will respond by the 5th april after investigating ( I THINK NOT)

 

so im now at the point where i am looking to issue a claim in the court to get my data. can anyone offer any advice on what to put for the particulars of claim etc on the N1 form

 

thanks

Hi Welshcakes,

 

i couldnt agree more. just seem to be delaying tactics that these institutions employ to make claiming as difficult as possible.

 

they did send the schedule 1st class post though. i got a letter detailing all the charges that had been levied against my account over the past 6 years,Happydays as i dont have to trawl through mountains of statements working out my charges.

 

the same day i got the schedule of charges i sent them a prelim letter asking for my money back total was 1233.00 .

 

today i got a response from the woolwich, the usual blah blah blah letter, we will reply to your complaint by the 23rd april blah blah blah signed by michele wallis (from what i can gather she signs all woolwich letters, must be aa very busy person).

 

i hope they dont think im gonna wait til then ,ive got news for them if they do. my prelim letter gives them till 5th april, then it will be a LBA on the 6th and by the 20th april i will be filling out the N1 form for court.

 

once i get a reply i will post the response on herre

 

regards

Hi Pt

 

The Woolwich did exactly the same thing to me! Sent the SAR Recorded Delivery. I received an offer of £1000 from them before I had even received the list of charges.

When I phoned them I was given the runaround between Woolwich and Barclays and was told they hadnt received my SAR. (I know they had as I had checked on Royal Mails website and saw it was delivered the day after I posted it). I told them that if they hadnt received my SAR, how come they had offered me £1000 then?

 

After a bit of shuffling about and being transferred to various people, they finally told me that the SAR had been passed to Barclays and the guy there told me how much they owed me and he would get my list of charges out in the post. I received them the next day.

 

I really think Wooly are just playing games. They were obviously hoping that I would just be over the moon with the £1000 offer, sign the acceptance and send it back without thinking. No chance, they owe me far more than that. When I phoned the woman at Barclays repeated about 3 times "This is your final offer".

 

Good luck with your claim - although you wont really need it. ;)

Hi

 

Can anyone help me, the woolwich defaulted me and my charges are twice what the amount of the default was. i have asked the woolwich to remove the default but they are refusing with the usual response " our charges are fair therefore the default stays as its your fault blah blah blah" i sent them a LBA on the 11th april and im stuck with what to write for the N1 form in the particulars of claim, im ok with the charges part but im unsure what to write for the removal of the default and all the templates focus on the charges element and there is nothing i can find that is a particular of claim for both default removal and reclaiming bank charges

 

any advice would be greatly recieved

 

thanks

here is the particulars of claim hun also have a look at this thread it will really help u

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/34887-5-money-claim-line.html

 

1. The Claimant has an account 1234567 with the Defendant, opened May 2000 2. Since 01/02/03 the Defendant debited charges and interest in respect of purported breaches of contract. 3. Defendant is aware of all details as a list of charges has already been supplied. Another copy will be sent. 4. Claimant contends: (a) The charges exceed the Defendant's losses caused by the breaches; (b) The Term permitting the Defendant to levy such charges is unenforceable under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and at Common Law. 5. Claimant claims: (a) return of the amounts debited of £XXXX; (b) Interest per S.69 County Courts Act 1984 of 8% - £xxx [enter interest total at date of claim] continuing at 8% until judgment or settlement at a daily rate of £0.xx; 6. Alternatively, if the charges are a fee for a service, then they must be reasonable under S.15 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982. 7. Costs allowed by the Court.

Hi amandaardley

 

thanks for that but its the "removal of the default" part thats causing me probs, i was under the impression that as the woolwich refused to remove the default the placed on my account due to bank charges ( i asked them to take them out in the prelim and LBA ) i could include the removal of the default in with my court claim for the return of the bank charges. im not sure what to put on the N1 form for asking the court to consider forcing them to remove the default from my credit file as it was made up of unlawful charges

 

i hope this makes more sense

well, i thought it was about time i updated this thread.....i filed the N1 on the 22nd April 2007

 

i recieved the barclays T/A the Woolwich standard defence yesterday along with the allocation questionnaire.

 

i have a question if anyone can help..

 

i have recently used teh draft order for directions from this site in my case against lloyds tsb and the judge in my case agreed and went a step further and ordered the bank to disclose proof of how much it costs to return a direct debit etc. my question is this, i am going to use the draft order again but can i also in the draft order refer to the order made by the D.J in my lloyds case by saying something like... Additionally, the Claimant is aware that the proposed directions are now routinely ordered in claims of this nature in the Mercantile Court in London, as well as in small claims track cases in Leicester, Derby, Chesterfield, Willesden and Mansfield County Courts. And in addition the requested directions have already been ordered by District Judge ****** in this very court and as a result the defendant in that case settled

i thought the piece in red would hopefully help any thoughts?

regards

paul

OK, today i recieved my court date, set for the 12th october 2007 at 1030 am.

 

i have also had my directions today from the judge and it states....

 

by the 30th july 2007 all parties shall send or deliver to the other party and the court written statements which are signed and dated of all the evidence including thier own (and including any documents)which they intend to rely in at the hearing. No party shall be at liberty to give evidence or call any witness whose evidence has not been disclosed in this way without leave of the trial judge. all witnesses shall attend the final hearing unless it is agreed by all parties that their attendance is unnecessary. the District judge will review the file at teh expiration of the time allowed for the filing and serving of evidence and if any party is in default in complying with any of the directions given in the case,he or she will make such order as he or she thinks fit, including if appropriate stricking out the claim or any defence. this may include vacating the hearing

 

 

Can anyone help me out here. is the judge asking for me to send hte court bundle or is he just wanting a statement and if it is a statement he wants,can anyone offer me some help on where to get an appropriate statement for claims against the woolwich

 

thanks
