    • 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 work at Queen's Park and travel daily on weekdays to/ fro Finsbury Park (my house).

I have a zone 2 and 3 travel card. 11th October evening while returning from work I experienced inconvenience due to one of theTFL members checking tickets at Finsbury Park Station


Firstly, upon request I produced my oyster and was told I do not have a valid ticket for my journey and was asked to pay £25 as fine.

As stated I had a valid zone 2-3 monthly travel card and I did touch in as usual at Queens park (at start of my journey)

and my card was confiscated just before the exit at Finsbury Park(my home).


If I had touch in at Queens Park (Zone 2) and touching out at Finsbury Park (Zone 2) and have a valid zone 2-3 travel card,

how could this journey be inappropriate/ not valid??


I am a hardworking individual and respect the laws and the TFL system, I fail to understand where I was wrong as I was asked to touch in and out at the start and end of the journey by TFL staff.


staff suggested that I was using the card which is registered under my Husband's name.

I am married and live together with my husband and accidentally had swapped our oyster card a while ago.


When we realized this we did speak to TFL staff at Queens Park on 18th of September 2011 at approximately xx:xxpm

and were told by the staff members (a lady member and another gentleman) and both advised to us that it was not worry if we had exchanged cards

as we are same family and also legally married.


We also did top-up of £x:00 and £x:00 on our card numbers respectively.


Upon explaining this -staff said "I don't believe in any rubbish you are saying, you are a very CLEVER FRAUD and obviously you haven't tried hard enough to exchange the oyster.

If our staff has told you this you could have used your brains.

People like you should be taught a lesson rather than a fine.

You deserve to be taken to court. "


Lastly staff went on writing the incident report in their own narration which was not at all as per the flow of incident and misleading.


their comments were very biased and at time racist to certain extent.

After confiscating my card they refused to provide me with any supporting document and reference.

I was left with no oyster and receipt.

I was forced to buy a new oyster card including monthly travel card.


This has left me in despair and mental trauma.

I am so shocked and stressed by this whole episode,

despite being following all rules and touching in/ out my journey I felt being targeted and treated with disrespect and as a criminal.


I am a thyroid patient and despite mentioning it to staff that I was getting late for my medication (which I had at home) I was kept standing for 45-50 minutes.


I am new to this country, my husband and I spend appropriate money to commute in London.

We respect all the laws and regulations and religiously abide to the rules but as a lady traveler I felt I was harassed.


Now today I received a legal notification from tfl stating they will take a legal action against me.


Please suggest what should I do?

PAYG Oystercards are transferable , monthly season oysters are not.

If you use *anyone* elses season oyster you are liable to a penalty charge or prosecution, I think you will struggle to persuade TFL that a member of staff said you could use your husbands card.

If you believe there was any element of racial abuse you MUST report the matter to BTP as a crime.
