    • already 3 months, 1st of March was when the local CC apparently wrote to CC business centre. I will call them again tomorrow
    • Still no CCA compliant paperwork then.. that's good for you. Response from them regarding your defence filing is funny! we enclose the 'application' haha no agreement in sight but they will continue with court anyway! the cheek.. No chance they go near a courtroom with that paperwork as exhibits. My advice is re-read your whole thread, many questions answered in 2023 it would be good to refresh your memory regarding the paperwork. Then read a load more claimform threads over the next week, in your downtime if still traveling alot.    
    • Good afternoon Stu i thought i had posted an update but i see i forgot. Your brilliant  suggestion has worked and for now they have credited my account with the court fees. Many thanks again  
    • Credit search will be for address varification in case you'd moved since the date of the speculative invoice I expect.  If you use our enhanced Google search box for.  Pcm Claimform, there are over 1000 threads that outline things.  Next for you will be ack from the court your defence has been registered OK.  To be frank.. If you'd been doing that from when advised a month ago, this would not have happened.  You've had a very very lucky escape here.... Now prepare and not allow another to happen.  We don't have the time to nurse maid those that don't self help.   Dx

    • 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.

Working in the creative industry, I recently decided to become a freelancer using an umbrella company.


I have been offered a one month assignment by a recruitment agency. However they require me to sign a conduct regulations 2003 opt out form


Can anyone explain what this is? Not sure if it´s just some bureaucracy or something I truly should worry about?


Advice is very welcome!

Basically, this concerns your employment status.


If you do not opt out of the Regulations, you are sending a message to HMRC that you are controlled by the client and, therefore, should be on the payroll of the client with PAYE and NI being deducted from your income.


There are some disadvantages from opting out:-


- agency is required to pay workers covered by the Regulations. You lose this protection if you opt out;

- terms with agency must be agreed before the consultant (i.e. you) get introduced to the client;

- agency could place restrictive covenants upon you such as from using another agency.
