    • See what you think about the attached.  I haven't really changed your arguments, merely changed the order to make them more obvious for the judge.  Please check for accuracy. I've also royally knackered the numbering and layout Regarding your partner's WS, cut out the first paragraph as it's unnecessary and confusing with its talk of appeals. I see the PCN mentions the amount may rise to £120 if you don't pay - then the idiots went for £170 in their court claim!  Very bad own goal. I also see their solicitors say they won't turn up to the hearing - if so you're more or less guaranteed to win.   Defendant's WS - version 2.pdf
    • Hi,. I purchased a car from In Herts Motors on the 9th July 2024.  They told me it had an intermittent fault with a sensor which was just a sensor issue. The tyres were threadbare so I went to get them replaced on the 11th July, the mechanic pointed out white smoke coming from the engine bay.  I got this investigated and the car has actually got a blown head gasket. Judging by the mess it has been blown for sometime. I contacted the company and requested a refund or repair as I've had the car 3 days at this point, they are flatly refusing claiming they told me the Engine was faulty, this is a barefaced lie. I've had to raise a county court case to deal with this matter.  My question here is what do I do with the car?  I have had to bite the bullet and buy one on finance from Cinch.  Do I SORN the car or do I sign it back over to the trader and park it on the street? I've only one parking bay and my new car is going in there.   Thanks guys.
    • I've seen a lot of that 'the UK prepared for the wrong pandemic' and although that is true as far as it goes, the simple fact that even the flu pandemic guidelines if they had been followed correctly would have reduced many of the impacts, and are useful and usable in many situations   alongside the - we will sell your NHS data app and the VIPal lane, and the bring million back from hotzones and send them across the country with no testing or management ...  among MANY failures of proper policy

    • 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.

Hi

 

Just been reading Kyka's post with interest.

 

Received a PCN (very unfairly I feel) and just notice it has the wrong vehicle registration number - one letter wrong. However I did see the guy who gave me the ticket take a photo of the car. The PCN also has the correct tax disc number on it. So they will be able to trace me through either the photo or the tax disc.

 

So what I want to know is - does this mean the PCN is legally unenforcable as it is factually incorrect, or does the fact it has the tax disc number on mean that is enough evidence that is was my car?

 

I reckon he typed in the wrong reg number as he was trying to get it done really quickly because he could see me running up the road - I got the 'sorry its already issued, nothing I can do about it now' excuse.

 

If I ignore it I guess they will still trace me through the photo/tax disc and I will get a Notice. I don't want to end up paying £80 instead of £40.

 

It is a Council issued PCN by the way.

This is my first PCN - I was 2 minutes late to the car and am fuming. :mad:

 

Thank you! Great forum by the way. :)

Hi and welcome to CAG.

 

As far as I am aware, if the PCN has the wrong VRM on it, then it does not relate to your vehicle. Test will be is if you get anthing through the post. They will not be able to trace you via the VRM if it is wrong. Not sure if they can use the tax disc as back up but i'm sure others will cooment further.

Reg number as stated on the PCN is the only one which can be pursued. If you do not own that exact vehicle - and you do not - then you are never going to be held liable for it. They will not contact you, so you can forget about it.
