    • 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.

There have been several threads related to this, I was only in a DMP and had settled before finding out about this site.

 

I think that the key issue is to consider the implicationms of winning a sum and how it would need to be dealt with. My believe is that even in a DMP you should claim the moeny then distribute it pro rata amongst your creditors.

 

Not sure if this helps, if you post any specific questions then if i have an idea or think someone else might then ill try and help

Thanks - I know I should advise my Supervisor of winnings - however I have a settlement offer from Barclays who say they will credit my account. Surely if an IVA is approved they cant take all the money for themselves? Wouldn't I need to receive it and pay it to my Supervisor to distribute accordingly?

1st off you are the claimant and part of the settlement agreement should be how they pay you, so tell them you wonwant it in cheque form

 

If they are one of your creditors then they will know that you are bound to distribute any 'windfalls' pro rata to all creditors. Failure to do this could jeaporadise the whole IVA process as i understand it.

Not connected really but of interest. There was a thread on here about a nearly expired bankruptcy. The lady said it was her husband who was bankrupt and it was on a joint account she was claiming. The thoughts on here were that she could keep half of the bank charges (reclaimed) and the other half would go to creditors. She was going to try to delay the payout for a few months but it was unavoidable as it was at the end of the claim. She rang the receivers and they said they had no interest in the claim........That was a surprise, It may have been more like they could not be bothered.

With an IVA you are agreeing to pay everyone so that is different. I think there is a pecking order though, number 1 the Inland Revenue and any government body and I think number 2 is the bank.

In a bankruptcy the payment should be made to the receiver to distribute, perhaps the same applies to your supervisor because they will want their cut as well.

Thanks for the advice... I will use the template rejection of settlement letter with a request of part payment by cheque.

 

However any links to threads on other IVA victims of unlawful charges would be very welcome so that I can follow their progress....
