    • So they seem to be deliberately fouling Britain - not 'just negligently Need to be in jail alongside the PO crims, and rabidly corrupt MPs

    • The first thing you need to do is for your father to send Argos customer services an email saying he wishes to return the item within the 14 day cooling-off period under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. This is important because he needs simple proof to back up his request, as they are being stubborn. Enclose a copy of receipt details so they can locate the sale, Distant selling regulations will apply as he made the contract online with the retailer and they took the payment. The contract is between your father and ARGOS. He has to cancel the contract and receive a refund back to his debit card. You cannot act on his behalf as a third party and they have every right to refuse to deal with you if they so wish. Data Protection the number one issue. I don't understand why Privity was mentioned since nobody is suing anyone. How you received the goods is irrelevant. A retailer's terms and conditions cannot derogate statutory obligation.
    • TfL take abuse of staff passes very seriously. If the pass has been confiscated I imagine they will write to them and it could result in the card being suspended for a time, as I understand it. I hope you've told them about the card being confiscated and why? We need to know how many times you used the pass please - how many weeks at 2-3 days a week. Later I would expect TfL to write to you as well, possibly with a schedule of journeys made with the card, to ask you to tell them which journeys were you. They will ask for your side of the story. We can help you to refine a letter to send once they write but you need to start it off because you're the only one who knows the full story. I suggest something like this. Paragraph 1 a short explanation of why you used the card on the day you were caught Paragraph 2 you know you made a mistake and you regret it Paragraph 3 you understand how what you did is wrong and the effect it has on TfL Paragraph 4 you have taken action - tell them what - to ensure that this doesn't happen again Paragraph 5 you ask if they would allow you to pay the outstanding fare and their administrative costs to resolve this Please don't copy and paste what I've said, use your own words. HB NB This is a suggested reply, don't send it before they write to you because we need to see what they say.

    • 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.

In September 07 I booked and paid for an hotel room, with Choice Hotels, the room was for 8 November 07.

 

On the morning of Wednesday 7 November I discovered that Meatloaf had cancelled his European tour, therefore I immediately contacted the hotel in Nottingham to cancel my room, they said that because I'd booked it on the internet I needed to cancel it on the internet. Which wasn't really convenient as it meant I had to go into work to retrieve my reservation. On my reservation it says that the cancellation deadline had passed so, eventually, I found a number for the UK and phoned them, where I was basically told that because I'd pre-paid the hotel room I couldn't cancel it, I explained the situation but they were having none of it.

 

I only paid for the room in advance because it was easier for me and it was one less expense to worry about.

 

Any ideas if and how I can go about getting my money back or at least the offer of another room within their hotel chain.

As much as I'd like to say this is a slam-dunk, because you only gave 24hrs notice of cancellation, they could argue they did not have an opportunity to re-sell your room. I blame Meatloaf myself, he stated in Newcastle that was going to be his last gig, but the management still said the rest would go on - which they didn't.

 

I travel extensively and re-arrange bookings regularly (usually through LateRooms.Com) and their policy is clear - I can cancel without penalty right up to 48hrs in advance of the booking, but after that, the first night's fee must be paid regardless. Since you were only staying 1 night, there isn't the issue of getting the fee for additional knights back, but whilst the cancellation wasn't your fault, it wasn't the hotel's either, who had your room ready for occupation.

 

A polite email to the booking service explaining the problem, asking for a 1-night credit for some future date might just do the trick, but they're certainly not obliged to.

Ask yourself the same question, if it were your hotel and someone cancelled the day b4 arrival, would you give them a full refund? think you have found your answer havn't you.

Hotels and B&Bs have various over heads, which when someone cancels, refunds are rarely given, have you read the hotels T&Cs on the matter.

Did you not take any insurance out in the of chance of the gig been cancelled, with many acts cancelling dates alate, it would make sense, or can you not claim the cost from any of your personnel insurances?

As Buzby pointed out, ringing to cancel the night b4, gave zero chance of the room been re-let, hence the hotel would have lost money if there refunded you, which if there did that for every1 i'd think thered go bust b4 too long.
