    • 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 currantly live alone in a 2 bed house that i rent from the council....

I receive full housing benefit and council tax benefit because i am on ESA with 25% discount for

single occupancy...

 

Now my worry is.While my 23 year son was in the Army he had all his mail send to me His bank statements , lots of bits and pieces....

He left the army 2 years ago and came home briefly before moving in with girlfriend.Then he moved in with some friends and more recently he moved in with currant girlfriend...

He has always kept his mail address as my house ....Never bothered me because i see him most days and he pops in for his mail....Otherwise he would have be told to visit his old mum lol..

 

I admit that if he has argument with his young lady or when i need help like just recently i have had a foot operation he will come aand stay in his old room....But he isnt on the electoral role at my house and he dosnt contribute to anything here.....

 

I have had a form from the council today to ask if i could sign and return if i am still entitled to single person allowance.... I was reading it and thinking maybe they think my son is living here because of all his mail coming here...

Maybe i should explain why he does this and give his currant address..

We did look into my son living at home but it messes with my benefit so much and my son is agency so work isnt regular...And he is going travelling after christmas so want to keep his mail here....

 

Its just says single persons review on the form.I am just getting anxious for no reason :)

I think you are worrying unnecessarily. Most councils regularly send out forms for people to confirm they are still entitled to the single person discount so it's most unlikely to be anything to do with your son.

 

However to protect yourself in future it would probably be best if he gets his mail sent to his own address.
