    • Of course it is your decision whether or not to go down the "legal route" – but actually seeking advice from us is precisely what you would be doing except that you would be getting it for free. It's up to you if you want to find a solicitor who will ask you exactly the same questions as us except you will be paying £300 an hour or if you want to follow our advice free of charge. You do need to settle down and answer the questions that we put to you. If you get a solicitor you will be asked exactly the same questions but I suppose that because you are paying £300 an hour you will be happy to answer them or even volunteer the information in order to save time and therefore money. I suggest that you give us the information we are asking for and anything else that you think might be relevant. This way hopefully we can cut to the chase without wasting time. Do understand that by coming to us you haven't simply chanced upon a piece of social media here. This is not Facebook. We are very serious about what we are doing and we are taking you very seriously. We take everybody who comes to us very seriously.

    • 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.

After a long drawn out procedure appealing two PCNs sent to a previous address and following two separate visits to my house by same bailiff, rejection of my out of times by the London borough, I had a court date in July and my two out of time applications were allowed by the presiding judge. The LB did not turn up. However I have found it impossible to get money back from the council. They are saying that because the order did not specifically say that charges must be refunded then they won't give me any money back.

 

Has anyone experienced anything like this? I am minded to sue the council in a separate court action as well as the bailiff because I found out much later that the bailiff had over-charged me. Never had a parking ticket before, so this was all new to me.

 

I have emailed the court several times since then and they kept saying the order stands. The latest communication from the court said that the case has now been sent back to Northampton. Does that usually happen?

Don't waste any more time on them, send them a recorded delivery letter telling them they have 14 days to make the refund or you will take legal action and claim all costs. Don't mention anything about what the last court said or didn't say.

 

If they refuse or don't respond, check the letter was delivered and signed for and then issue a summons. You can do it on line https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk/web/mcol/welcome

Thanks for your reply. That is pretty much what I had decided to do. I have been communicating with them by email so will also send an email copy.

 

The LB also told me to go to the Local Govt. ombudsman to make a complaint, which I had already done.

 

Have you heard of this happening before?

The responsibility for repaying you lays with the LOCAL AUTHORITY.

 

They have refused to repay you and therefore you have done the RIGHT thing by making a Formal Complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman.

 

If you now issue court proceedings, the LGO will have to cease their investigation of your complaint.

If an Out of Time witness statement is accepted, the effect of it will be to REVOKE the Order for Recovery. Naturally, the respondent is therefore entitled to be refunded the bailiff fees and the amount of the PCN. the claim would be against the LOCAL AUTHORITY.

 

If proof is needed, I would suggest that everyone reads the article written by Mr Vernon Philips towards to bottom of the page on the following link:
