    • 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.

Converting an Assured Shorthold Tennancy to a Statatory Perodic Tennancy

Hi I hope some one can help me with a dispute I'm having with my landlord. Appologises in advance if i'm duplicating previous threads.


I am currently on a six month Assured Shorthold Tennancy which is due to end next week (22nd May). On the 7th of April the landlord sent a letter asking if i wished to renew the contract or leave at the end of the tennancy. I contacted him and explained that I did not wish to commit for six months as I am currently trying to buy a house and asked if the contract could become a rolling contract to allow me some flexibility.


As I understood it an Assured Shorthold Tennancy will default to a Statatory Perodic Tennancy if no agreement is signed and I continue to live there. However the landlord has told me that this does not apply to this type of Assured Tennancy and that I have to sign a new contract or move out.


As the contract expires next week he has agreed to let me stay for a month without signing a new contract but wants me out on the 22nd June if I do not sign - although nothing has been put in writing or signed by me.


I would be greatful if someone could help clarify the situation for me.


As I understand it if I contiune to leve there without a contract (from 23rd May) the tennancy will become perodic, despite what the landlord claims and as such he has to give me two months written notice to leave, and not a month as verbally suggested. Is this correct or can I be forced out earlier?

You will continue to live there with a contract. As you have stated your fixed term will automatically become statutory periodic (rolling month on month) with or without your landlords approval, under the same terms, conditions and rent as your original fixed term.


If yolu want to leave, you will have to serve one full calander months notice ending on the same date in the month that the fixed term came to an end.


If your landlord wants you to leave, he must serve you a correct s.21 notice giving you a minimum of two months notice. You should check that the S.21 wasnt served when you moved in -although some would argue that by the fact that he has offered you another 6 months this s.21 would be invalid. If on expiry of this notice you dont leave, the LL may apply to court for an eviction notice.


The landlord cannot end your tenancy without your agreement or without a court order.


Sounds like you have an amertur on your hands!
