    • 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.

Hello, can you help me! I have second agreement for an Assured Short hold Tenancy :

1. Term of Tenancy


The Landlord lets to the Tenant the Premises for a period of 6 months. The Tenancy shall start on and include the 26th March 2010 and shall end on and include the 25th September, 2010, but subject to clause 10.4.



Rent and any other monies payable under this Agreement until the Term expires, or the Premises are re-let, whichever is earlier.


Tenant’s Break Clause


10.4The Tenant may determine the Tenancy at any time after the expiration of the first Six (6) months by giving to the Landlord or his Agent not less than two (2) calendar months’ prior written notice of its desire and up to the time of determination (which for the avoidance of doubt will not be earlier than six months from the commencement date of this Agreement) pays the rent and reasonably performs the obligations on his part contained in this Agreement, then on the expiration of the notice the Tenancy shall cease and determine but without prejudice to the rights and remedies of either party against the other in respect of any antecedent claim or breach of obligation.



But I wish to end it at the end of the term (25th September, 2010) and gave my landlord 2 month notice (in writing) for it on 30/06/10. He saying that I still have to live in the flat for another 2 month after the end of agreement, pointing out to the Break Clouse 10.4 :

your agreement clearly states end of 25th September 2010 plus 10.4 where both parties can give 2 months notice AFTER the 25th September 2010: earliest contractual end date being 25th November 2010.(from his letter)


and that the first agreement do not count towards 6 month after which I can give 2 month notice for leaving any time. Is he right?

Many thanks.

Did you sign this second agreement, and was this break clause on it?

As far as i'm aware the first one stands, so you could leave on the 24th Sept and not owe a penny or give any notice

Unless someone comes along with anything different (ive been away a while so not au fait with current rental laws) tell him you will move out on the 24th.

Your LL is talking rubbish, though whether he's devious or deluded isn't quite clear.


Your Tenancy Agreement is badly worded, he's picked it up from somewhere and doesn't understand it. You have signed a six month agreement. It ends on 25th September. If it were allowed to carry on past that date, THEN you would have to give ONE month's notice (that's the law, he can't make you sign away a right in law). Actually, you didn't have to give notice at all to move out on 25th September.


That raises the matter of deposit. Did you pay one? Has he protected it? Will he try and withhold it on this excuse (hence my question of whether he is being devious)? If you answer three "Yes-es" then the dispute resolution service will sort it out.


Presumably this second agreement came into force at the end of a first 6 month's tenancy?
