    • Thanks I just had a quick look.  Will study over the w/e My friend does have kids. But it's a really dysfunctional family.  They don't talk.   Many years ago he sold 2 property assets and gave them a lot of money (enough to buy homes w/o loans) .  They've done nothing for him in the last 2 decades. And he altered his will so his new partner gets everything; the kids nothing (more). The 1st form I glanced at - to be deputy - asks for family details.   If I give his kids details I suspect the authorities may say they should get the deputy job instead?  Then  they will steal the money and give nothing to his partner. I can get a copy of the medical assessment  - and get it translated.  If need be.   This has all happened very quickly.  He got sick. And that must have kick-started dementia.   He was fine to hold a detailed conversation 6months ago; now he cant
    • Hi I think the only way around this as he lacks capacity is someone is going to have to apply to be a deputies via the Courts as he has assets here in the UK and a UK Bank Account which will take time and there will possible be Court Fees to make the application. Also if the Lack of Capacity (Dementia) was diagnosed abroad the person applying for deputies will need that diagnosis and it will need to be translated legally for the UK Courts so possibly cost for this as well. Also for reference although you were assisting them before the lack of capacity and had authority to act on there behalf that no longer stands due to there diagnosis of Dementia therefore Lack of Capacity so you no longer have any authority legally to act on there behalf unless the below is actioned or someone has Power of Attorney for that individual (which was setup before the Lack of Capacity) Have a wee look at these links: https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/topics/private-client/mental-capacity-international-aspects#:~:text=You might need to make,act within the foreign jurisdiction https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/office-of-the-public-guardian I have got to ask with the Dementia diagnoses are you 100% sure the diagnosis states they Lack Capacity as not everyone that gets a Dementia diagnoses may lack capacity initially. Now the Office of the Public Guardian link above you could also consider giving them a call just to give them a brief on this situation and get there advice on what documents etc are needed for deputies to be appointed as the person with Lack of Capacity is abroad.

    • 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.

I went to open my back-up account today at Lloyds and found out something very interesting, if someone refers you, then both the referer and the referee receive £40 when a total of £500 goes into the account in the first 2 months (it doesnt have to stay in the account.)

 

Now this got me thinking, if we all referred each other and put in and took out £500 within 2 months,even if each person donated only half of their £40 thats a lot of law books for the site!!

 

What do people think?

Whilst donating to the group is a great idea, I have a better one: let's all recommend each other, and all our friends, open the accounts, close them again and take the bank for a huge amount of free money...

A & L are doing the same, but they are offering £50 to both the referer and the referee. I didn't see anything about a minimum amount being put in either

Not sure if I'm allowed to post this, so please delete and accept my apologies if not, but here goes.

 

I have 5 ING Direct vouchers, internet savings account, just £1 deposit to open the account, pays 4.5% AER.

 

Each voucher gives the bearer a £10 bonus and gives me one too. PM me if you want one, I will be more than happy to donate my "commission" to this site.

I only mouth my opinion, please look elsewhere for sensible advice! :)

perhaps you should be recommend lloyds for now. think how much money you could get out of everyone opening up a new parachute account at lloyds.

 

That's what I was thinking, only instead of me personally making money, it would be donated to the site for books etc, if a & l aredoing the same with no minimum deposit who's to say we couldn't do both! :twisted:

 

I mean, c'mon if they're offering these things lets take advantage of them!

 

If anyone wants to do it PM me for account details(should get them today) and maybe someone who has an account with a&l could make themselves known to do the same. Or perhaps the mods could be first referral to set up an account for the site and that account refer all others,

If BF opened up the account, it would be a fantastic way to get the money directly for the book fund! [might raise a bit of suspension those, having hundreds of people signing up lol

 

Just noticed though, on MSE, that A & L are due to drop this bonus to £25 in the next few weeks

As one who is about to be ejected from Lloyds, all I can say is that the staff at my branch are marvelous, and do all that they can. The problem is the senior management.

 

All banks are the same - maximise profits - the 6 figure bonuses depend on it.

The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

I was about to say the same, they are all as bad as each other, but if we can get something out of them then I'd say its worth it, we're not saying lloyds is not as bad as any other bank Mgizmogpc just that this is an opportunity to take advantage of them.

 

What do the mods think about this?
