    • Ok. Thanks.  I will put my head to this now.
    • Get a 2nd opinion ASAP. Dealerships are notorious for saying that cars need brakes/tyres when they don't. Take it to someone completely independent and get their opinion.
    • nothing to do with any warranty. consumer rights act or contract law claim. dx
    • Thank you for the response; I'm very grateful for the help and i'm open to all feedback. I'm afraid I don't understand what is meant by properly declared and valued? On the Evri app, when completing the process of sending a parcel, I did declare that I was sending a 'watch' and gave the full value of the watch (£429.99). I'm not an online seller if that helps. The parcel contained my own personal watch; a Garmin which cost £474.99 (inclusive of 'protect plus insurance' from John Lewis of £45). The £45 Protect Plus insurance from John Lewis covers the Garmin watch, and as they have lost it, it is no longer valid. So i'm adding that to the total claim.  It was a birthday gift bought for me this Jan/Feb by my partner.    Re: understanding of Parcel delivery insurance; "Part 1 Chapter 4 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 means I have a legal right to expect that any service I’ve paid for should be carried out with reasonable care and skill". So I understood from this that I have rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 that protect me, regardless of not choosing to purchase their insurance protection.        
    • HI all, I work for a company who offers a review service for large companies, whereby customers can review products and/or services and the reviews appear on the companies own site My job, along with roughly 10 others, is to moderate those reviews. We're all on a zero hours contract, we do work as and when it's available. The way the system works is for every 120 reviews we moderate, we get paid the equivalent of the basic minimum wage, so £11.44 per 120 reviews. If this were a steady supply of reviews, it could be a decent income, but it's not, so you end up spending a lot of time doing nothing and not being paid for it, such is life For the last 3 months or so they've had an issue whereby a lot of reviews were duplicated up to 15 times and we were told to moderate those as we would normal reviews, You can imagine how many reviews we've been having to moderate, my moderated review count was probably around 4x the number I normally do, almost throughout the entirety of June this was going on for. being quite excited about the prospect of a boost in income, to me and other mods surprise and shock, we're not being paid for all those extra hours and work done, for the past 3 months when the issue started.. We're only being paid for the non duplicate reviews, plus 5% on top. In my case, instead of receiving around £1500ish for the month of June, I'm only receiving around £500 I mean, I get it, marking each of these duplicates was very quick/easy, as it was a repeat decision from the previous 14, but to let us do all that work and not pay us for it?

    • 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.

My first post now I have a spare minute!

 

Things are progressing nicely. I sent my initial letter at the beginning of Dec 2006 and the LBA just before Christmas. I am filing my MCOL tomorrow so may well be looking for help :)

 

Had the usual response from HSBC (we will investigate this sometime during your lifetime etc..)

 

I am claiming around £2500 and had a letter at the weekend offering me £2200 which I am turning down.

 

Any advice at this stage gratefully recieved and messages of support are always welcome.

Just carry on your nearly there......:D

 

If you wanted advice though this would be mine - file an N1 and not an MCOL. An N1 can be found in the library templates which is basically an exact copy of the N1 form you would submit to your local Court. What you need to do is bring up a copy of the N1 and complete (you will be unable to download and save this document). What I suggest you then do is check, double check & triple check the details on there then copy and paste the information you have input into a word document and save (it will only allow you to copy the details you have input). Then print out 4 or 5 copies of the N1 back to back. You will need to take 3 copies of the N1 to the Court with you along with the schedule of charges (3 copies) and the fee. If you go onto the MCOL site it will tell you how much that is.

You can submit your claim MCOL as you wanted to do originally. The same information will need to be submitted but you will need to be very careful as you have a limit to the number of characters you can input on the MCOL and I find there is a danger of leaving something out!

 

The choice is yours, anyway good luck and I hope I have explained in sufficient detail, if not and you require any further info etc. Then post again.

not to interfere but the mcol is so convenient! i am a lazy sod! the only tricky bit is getting the particulars into the tiny space but, if i may be so bold, i'll pm you mine to use as a template. so between the template in the library and mine - you'll see what to do.

by all means use the n1 instead if you like - just giving you options.

from the date served (you should have received a notice of issue with a date - count from that date - yes, 28 days.)

now, send the court 3 copies of your breakdown referencing your claim number and 1 copy to dg - address on pg 2 of the ackn. also referencing your claim - then, nothing to do but wait a bit.

A few questions:

 

I am about to send a letter to DG with my schedule of charges what do you think?

__________________________

 

I understand that you will now be representing HSBC Bank Plc in regards to my claim against them for unlawful bank charges.

Please find enclosed a schedule of those charges for you records amounting to a total claim of £xxxx including interest and court fees on the date of issue. Note that this claim is currently accumulating interest at a rate of £0.xx per day until judgment or the claim is settled from the date of issue which was the xxxxxxx 2007.

In addition to this claim I am aware that HSBC intends to levy further unlawful charges against my account amounting to £125 on xxxxx 2007. Should these charges be made against me and this case go to court then I would ask the judge to take these into consideration. In the event of a settlement being offered I would also expect these further charges to be refunded.

_______________________________________

 

The date of acknowledgement of my MCOL was 18th Jan is it now 28 days from this date before DG have to file their defense?

 

Thanks

it's the date of service(issue) that you count from - and yes, they now have 28 days from that date to submit their defense. now, you send your breakdown - letter is fine but put in your claim number somewhere. dg address is on pg.2. of the acknowl.

also, send 2 copies of your breakdown to the courts also referencing your claim number.

hiya

on your acknowledgment it will show the date that the claim was 'served' to hsbc. you count 28 days from that date so that will be 15th February that the bank has to file the defence by.

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

Ok so things have moved on a bit in the last few weeks. The MCOL deadline has passed and HSBC "say" they are going to defend! (I will post the details of their defence later.)

 

My AQ deadline is 6th March 2007 and I have a N149 form to file in an take to the court on or before that date.

 

Any advice on the next course of action would be appreciated. i.e. should I hassle DG when should I file etc!

 

Thanks

 

:D

This is the defence that HSBC have filed. I presume that this is a standard defence but would welcome that being confirmed:

 

------

1.The Claimant's account is governed by the Defendant's personal and/or business banking terms and conditions.

 

2. Pursuant to the Defendant's terms and conditions the Defendant is entitled to make a charge for its services as set out in the Defendant's price list, including an overdraft review fee for considering whether to provide and providing and overdraft.

 

3. The Defendant denies that the charges applied to the Claimant's account amount to penalties at common law and/or unfair contract terms for the purposes of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 (UTCCRs).

 

4. The charges applied to the Claimant's account are reasonable and are properly and fully disclosed in the Defendant's terms and conditions and published price list. The charges represent the contractually agreed price for the services provided and the UTCCRs are not applicable to them; alternatvely, they are not unfair contrary to the UTCCRs. Further, the charges are not default charges and, accordingly, cannot amount to a penalty.

 

5. Save as set out above, each and every allegation made by the Claimant is denied. For the reasons set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled ti the relief claimed or any relief.

 

------

 

I assume that the spelling mistakes and poor grammar are because they are a little bit busy at the moment!!! :D

I am now starting to pull together my AQ and have a question. As I mentioned in Post #8 HSBC charged me a further £125 since I submitted my MCOL. Am I pushing my luck to have this included now or should I include it as part of my schedule of charges in the event that my AQ actually gets filed and I have to keep my commitments as specified in the Draft Order of Directions that will go with it?

 

Thanks

well the interesting thing for me is that in april I am getting an extremely large bonus which I could leave in the account for a few days until they ring offering me their usual services, investments etc... and then ask for it back and if I don't get it take all my money elsewhere!!!
