Customer Question

Hi my name isXXXXX - I have a 3 year agreement with BMW Financial Services, taken out in July 2011, for a BMW R1200 GSA motorcycle (total value £17,750.29), and I have been making regular monthly payments of £222.86 every month since. Last week, I requested (via my local BMW dealership) a settlement figure in lieu of updating my vehicle, only to be informed that I did not have an agreement with BMW and that they could not help me. As you can imagine, this caused much confusion, as I had had to provide two means of identification during the application for credit. After much searching and exchange of correspondence, BMW issued me a copy of an agreement in the name of Anthony Holman and upon checking my Hire Purchase Agreement and invoice, found that the agreement was indeed issued in the name of Anthony Holman, although it was signed for by me; the settlement on the vehicle is £6505.36, but as the agreement is not in my name is XXXXX XXXXX?

It was your signature and was it signed as your name?

It was my signature dated 29/7/2011, but the agreement was in the name of Anthony Holman (my full name is Stuart Anthony Holman) - my intention here is not to default or defraud BMW, but to shake them into some form of action as I'd like to update my vehicle!

In that case it is enforceable but it is just defective.

It is something the Court can remedy.

The name is wrong but I assume the address is correct, the car reg number and you have signed it.

As such because of those matters the agreement is voidable but not void.

So it can be remedied.

I hope this clarifies.
