    • 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, it's me again!!!!:p :p :p

 

I have to tell you that the reason I'm 'going for it' is because we need to move house next year and we can only do this sensibly IF I sort out our finances.....so, this one's for Abbey, a bank account we had years ago with 2 years left on the default to run ( a request for statements was also sent for this account which I'm expecting very soon.)

 

I used SB's templete again...............YOU ARE A GENIUS!:D But then, you know that don't you!;):p

 

Wish me luck!

Not a sausage from Abbey.....no letter, no documents NO NOTHING!!!

 

Sending LBA recorded delivery tomorrow giving them 7 days to respond.

Actually, do I still have to file a claim after the 7 days are up (could do without spending another £150 so close to Christmas)when they haven't produced any documentation? no certified default notice or even the origional agreement.

 

I should know this, my head is scrambled....sorry, that much going on at the moment....completely done in with it all. But I'll do what it takes to get it sorted out.

Yes it is, it is an old bank account that was defaulted in 2002 and settled about 3 years ago. I'm also waiting for statements from them for the same account, I had to make an official complaint to the ICO last week!!

 

Seems like they don't wanna send me anything!

I could hang on this and wait for my statements in the hope that the unfair charges will equal that of the defaulted amount. But the fact that they've not supplied me with anything yet, even after the stat notice was served is too precious!!! They have a week to go anyway, lba tomorrow.

 

But if they still don't respond do I just go straight to the ICO? or do I have to go down the small claims route?

ok come on now WilllowB, you've read enough of my posts to know that the ICO aren't worth the air that they breathe!

 

Trying to get them to understand this issue, never mind take any action, is like platting treacle.

 

Complaints to the ICO are like screaming at the sun, makes you feel better for a bit but ultimately fruitless.

 

HARDLY ANYONE WILL REMOVE A DEFAULT OF ANY SIGNIFICANCE WITHOUT GOING TO COURT.

 

just get y'self down to your court and file.... go on.... you know you want to!!

Well, sent of the N1 form today, my particulars are as follows.....

 

The claimant wrote to the Defendant on 21/07/06 enclosing a £1 postal order requesting a certified copy of the default notice issued on account ********* on 16/1/03 as well as a certified copy of the origional agreement. After subsequent attempts to obtain a copies, the Defendant has failed to supply them. It is the Claimant's contention that he Defendant is obligated to supply copies under the legislation contained within s.78 (1) Consumer Credit Act 1974 (s.77 (1) for fixed sum credit).

It is also the Claimant's contention that at no time did the Claimant grant permission, either expressly or implied for the Defendant to arbitrarily extend that permission to store, process or disclose any personal data beyond the cessation date of the contract. The Claimant believes that the Defendant's perceived right to arbitrarily choose to extend the length of that contract without the Claimant's agreement would be unlawful and unenforceable under the provisions of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999. The Defentant has failed to provide the Claimant with any evidence to prove agreement to such terms in perpetuity and it is therefore the Claimant's contention that the Defendant is in breach of both the contract itself and the Data Protection Act 1998, by the Defendant's continual disclosure of personal data.

Here Goes!

Hi:)

 

In the space for 'claim amount' I put £5 and in brackets 'postage and stationary costs'. GlennUK suggested this to me and although I think that if I had enough money and could afford 2 claims at £150 each I would do but I can't so I'm trying it this way.

done:)

 

I think so. I dunno, it is Money Claim on line and I suppose I'm an old fashioned girl so I just went down the N1 route. It's blatantly obvious that you're not claiming £5 but if it's accepted then fine. I'm only just starting out myself, so someone more experienced may disagree.

Oh goodie, I did right then:)

 

But Tinks what is your view on claiming a nominal amount to keep the cost of claiming down. I know that if it were a large sum and claiming for distress etc it may take the focus of the case away from the default issue and the Judge may not look favourably on the claim. But claiming a small amount like I and others are doing.....what do you think?
