    • 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.

Reading through the threads it is apparent,yorkshire bank have been fleecing peoples account.I know the £35 charges for returned cheques and unpaid direct debits are too high.My dilemma is the charges placed on my account are mainly a £8 a day for exceeding my overdraft limit.Over the last 6 years this would add up to a considerable amount.

My question is to other Yorkshire Bank customers on this site,is have you claimed for this daily charge.

Any info would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Crystal,

 

Most of my charges where made up of this £8 per day, plus the £25 per month charge. You need to claim every charge they've made against your account.

 

Just out of interest, have they changed your account type lately, as my ex account was 'reviewed' in Dec 2005 and apparently the don't offer that 'old' type of current account anymore and changed mine to the new version [i've forgotten what it was called] but you didn't get charged £8.00 per day for being overdrawn, just the £25 if you kept with a £25 'buffer zone' of your overdraft.

Hiya guys..

 

I`m just waiting for my statements to come through, so i will be able to tot up my totals soon..

 

In the current account that i have, ( the one where all my direct debits come out of ) i do know that i have been charged about 69p per direct debit this has gone on for years. Is this the kind of charge that can be claimed back or are they acceptable ? Because of this every three months i`m charged around £50.

 

For the first time ever ( for some reason ) when i got my charges letter the other week the total `charges` worked out at 69p ONLY. .

 

The way that i`ve` handled my account hasn`t changed one bit ( puzzled look )

 

Just wondering if anyone else is claiming such charges ?

 

Thanks........Regards....Swag Bag.

Thanks stycks

 

I don't think my account has been changed.However the message may be getting through,as they returned a cheque last week.My employer sent me a cheque but cancelled it,as they had done a bank transfer unbeknown to me.They only charged my account £6 for this.

Thanks for the info on the daily charge,should add up to a tidy little sum.

Hi Crystalloid,

 

Just read your message on my thread,yes all the £8/day fees are claimable.

 

They only charged my account £6 for this.

Thanks for the info on the daily charge,should add up to a tidy little sum.

 

Add this to your schedule too as it is a charge we all include in our schedules

Thanks for the info guys.Just a thought when you have added all the charges up,do the bank deduct what are now considered a reasonable amount from your claim, or do you tend to get all your charges back.

Goin to drop my request for information on charges at my branch tommorow.

Let the BATTLE COMMENCE.

The most likely scenario is that they'll refuse to refund your charges when you send your prelim letter. And at some point they will probably offer you a reduced payment. Hold out and you will get every last penny back, as many of us here have already done.

No they wont deduct what is considered a reasonable amount.If you think about it,that would be admitting that their charges were unreasonable and inflated in the first place

I'm a bit puzzled by the 69p Swag Bag. Is this a business account? It seems to me like a service charge that you may have agreed to if it's for every direct debit. I take it you don't mean the bounced ones. Have you got any Terms and Conditions you can refer to? If not just ask the bank what it's for.

Hi caro,

Thanks for replying to my question..

 

The account i have was opened when i was about seventeen to have my wage paid into ( 25 years ago )...A few years later when i bought a house i had my direct debits took out and have always been charged a fee for this....

I remember querying this once a long time ago, but was told by a young lady behind the counter that this was right....so i`ve always thought that this must be correct....and have carried on paying this for what must be over 20 years.. ( This is not a business account at all ).

 

I`ve always thought that every boby must be charged this who had an account with the Yorkshire bank. Can i reclaim these charges ?

 

Thanks......Swag Bag..

 

PS ...With having this account so long...I have no Terms and conditions..

I have just received an acknowledgement letter for my data request.In it they state under the data protection act they are not obliged to provide,information on manual intervention of managing accounts.I assume this is due to the fact they don't hold any records ??

Yes they havent done any interventions,but wont admit it because then they cant justify their charges.the main thing is you asked for the info and they have refused to supply it.this is in your favour come court time

I handed my SAR into my local branch by hand on the 19th Jan,a member of staff signed for it's receipt.Today will be the 40th day,head office wrote to me on the 26th Jan acknowledging receipt on the 26th Jan,this would give them a further 7 days.If I do not receive my statements in this mornings post are they in breach of the data protection request ? If so what can I do about it ?

 

Thanks

They received the payment the day you took it in to the branch so the 40 days started then.

 

In the bank templates library there is a letter before action giving them 7 days to comply or you will take court action. You could also complain to the ICO (Information Commissioners Office).

I have received a letter today from the Yorkshire Bank informing me that the 40 days has elapsed.However due to the high volume of requests they are unable to process my request at this time,and ask for patience in this matter.They go on to say I'm within my rights to refer the matter to the Information commissioner.Any thoughts anyone,is this just a delay tactic wouldn't have thought it took much time to press the print icon on the screen.

They have failed in their legal requirement, so yes carry on as planned. I think you were going to complain to the ICO anyway.

 

Perhaps if they are struggling they should deploy more people to do it. They can afford it after all. Include a copy of the letter from the bank in your letter of complaint. 40 days is loads of time.

Today I received statements for one of my current accounts.Can somebody just clarify what you can claim back.

 

£20 MONTHLY CHARGE

£8 DAILY CHARGE

 

I am assuming the debit interest charge is not claimable,as i have in effect borrowed that money during that period.

Also is it advisable to wait for statements for my other account and claim jointly or should I just proceed seperatly.

 

Any advice appreciated...........Thanks

Seperate them as this will be easier to follow.

 

The debit interest can be a complicated process of claiming back as you can not claim it all back as you know, only some of it due to charges amount per month, dosent usually add up to that much and a lot of effort is required to calculate it, that is why a lot of people leave it.

 

Have a look in here to see what you can claim for, hope this helps and good luck.
