    • next time dont panic and wet yourself and offer payment !! Date of issue – 14 june 2024 date for aos - 2nd july  date to file defence - 16th july      other than the CCA/CRP and if it ever gets that far..a witness statement, you send them NOTHING and dont ever instigate comms with them. esp by email.. i would be sending one final email in reply to theirs above. PLEASE NOTE: email is NOT to be used for any comms with regard to our mutual court claim. else they'll be sending a whole forest of faked agreements/documents to you one minute before a court deadline removing your shace to object/pull them apart as unenforceable etc. dx

    • Unbelievably I can't find it, I will have a really good look for it when I have a bit more time on my day off this week. AS a side note, I emailed them offering a token payment to settle the account and avoid court action, which unsurprisingly they have declined. However their reply states:  A Claim was accepted on 19 June 2024 which means we cannot set up a payment plan just yet. You should have received a claims pack from the Court. We would ask for this to be completed with your offer of repayment and returned to either ourselves or the Court.  You have 21 days for this to be completed and returned in order to avoid a Judgment by Default. This means we would need to receive this by 10 July 2024. I was under the impression it was 19 days from date on the claim form. which was the 14th, which would be 3rd July. Could I use this against them as it seems like they are giving me false information in the hope of getting a judgement by default?

    • 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.

PCN nightmare - need to fill out TE7 form

Hi everyone I hope you would be kind enough to help me.


On 7th July last year I got a PCN for being parked on VERY faded/cracked double yellow lines. My understanding is that for the PCN to be valid they need to be clear unbroken, and meet the payment at each end?


Anyway I took pictures immediately on my phone and emailed them to the appeals email address on the PCN.


I got an email back from a woman confirming she had forwarded the pictures to the relevant department for appeals.


Then...nothing! I hoped they had realised their mistake and scrapped it.


I then recieved a letter reminding me about the PCN, and the charge had been increased. I called the number on the letter to inform them I'd appealed and hadn't heard back, and they sent me a TE9 form.


In honesty (being self employed) this then sat on my desk for a while before I sent it off informing them I hadn't heard back from my appeal within 28 days.


I then got this returned to me, saying I'd sent it back outside of the specified timeframe. Included was a form TE7 where I need to explain why.


I got this on 23rd Jan 2012 and it's sat on my desk since, on my ever growing to do list! They have now sent a bailiffs letter threatening repossesion of my goods if I don't pay within 7 days.


I called the Traffic Enforcement centre and they said there's no timeframe on returning the TE7 form (bizarrely) so I'm still OK to send this back today/tomorrow, and when I do, they'll suspend the bailiffs while they review it.


So what reason do I give on the TE7 form for late response? Is being a busy, young, self employed person just trying to make an honest living good enough or should I go down the route that I have very mild Autism and didn't understand the form hence didn't complete it on time? Or am I barking up completely the wrong tree?


Thanks in advance

I don't see you have a viable reason. You have to file the TE9 in the specified time, and according to what you say, you let it sit on your desk and time out.


There's no realistic grounds to file it late - but it's worth doing anyway. You've nothing to lose, but it will almost certainly be rejected.

Usually because someone moved house and all the official notices when to their former address. Then, the bailiff found them and started chasing them for the money. In that case, they couldn't file in time because they were unaware of the debt.


Or, someone was abroad and didn't receive correspondence. Or the council had the door number wrong - that sort of thing.


Seems you were sent and received the TE9, so unless you can convince them that you didn't receive it or the prior notices, they will almost certainly reject it.


Still, as I say, your chances are better than zero, so worth a try.
