    • 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 wonder if anyone can give me some advice.

 

I am defending a claim against a previous employer and the court date is scheduled for early September. They had until yesterday (24 August 2011) to submit / exchange their witness statements for which they have failed to do.

 

What happens next......

Hi Missmoore and welcome to Cag

 

Have they failed to submit it to Court or just to you? have you submitted yours and sent them a copy?

I would allow a few days or even a week then contact the court with regards to them failing to comply with Court Directions.

 

Regards

 

Andy

We could do with some help from you.

Hi,

 

They failed to submit them to the court and to me. I have provided the courts and previous employer copies of the witness statements, so i'm not too impressed as they now have the opportunity to re-write their statements having read mine :(

 

The court date is less than two weeks away, so want to know as much as possible as to what i can do, say at the hearing or even get it struck off if possible.

I always advise for that very reason never exchange until you have received theirs.Make sure the Court gets theirs on time but as you state they now have the heads up.Take a look at your Notice of Allocation and directions if it states that penalty for not complying with the dates may result in the Court striking out then consider that option in a few more days.

 

Best of luck

 

Andy

The letter says the following:

a) Each party must deliver to every other party and to the court office copies of all documents on which that party intends to rely at the hearing no later than 14 days before the hearing.

b) The Judge may refuse to consider a document or take into account if a copy of it has not been sent to all parties.

c) Both parties shall, no later than 14 days before the hearing serve on each other the witness statements of themselves and all witnesses on whom they intend to rely.

I did not send them their copy of the witness statements until the last day as i didn't want to be the one to fail the courts directions.

 

Because they have not submitted the witness statements to the court on time can i ask the Judge to strike off or refuse the statements? or can i amend mine (as could of done a better job as kind of got confused)

There will be a note in the Notes: section.

 

. If you do not comply with these directions, any other party to the claim will be entitled to apply to the court for an order that your statement of case (claim or defence) be struck out.

 

So as stated wait a few more days, check with the court and if still not submitted or received by yourself then you have the option to make application to strike out their claim.Alternatively you could make application to amend or resubmit a further WS.

 

Regards

 

Andy
