    • 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.

Hi,

 

I hope someone can help me. I am querying my membership T&C's (see attached for Alveston Hall Crewe/Warner Liesure). Although it says that I am agreeing to be a member for 12 months (clause a) there is also a clause ( d ) stating that you can give two months notice to terminate.

 

I have been a member now for 6 months and I am considering giving my notice due to a change in personal circumstances. To me It is unclear if you are tied in for a year or it is possible to leave. I would be grateful of your advice.

 

Thanks

Hi UEGM,

 

Out of interest, did you ever sort the issue with Bannatynes from 2 years back ?

 

The image above is too small to read. See here for how to scan and post images - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?214191-HSBC-solicitors-northampton-claim-help-pls&p=3808613&viewfull=1#post3808613

 

Without seeing what's actually on your T&C's, you can normally only cut a 12 month agreement short if you :-

 

1. Cannot use the gym on medical grounds.

 

2. Move home or are relocated because of work.

 

3. Lose your employment.

 

:-)

Hi Slick,

 

thanks for your reply. Bannatynes eventually just gave up and I never heard from them again.

 

Ok I have saved another version of T&C's. Also when I joined I did ask what the notice period was and was told it was 2 months.

 

Cheers.

........ when I joined I did ask what the notice period was and was told it was 2 months.

 

You were informed correctly - according to (d) of the T&C's you've posted here, they require 2 month's notice to cancel..

 

However, according to (a) on the agreement you're tied in to a minimum 12 month initial m/ship period.

 

After you experience with Bannatynes, you should have taken a moment to read the T&C's for this gym. Unless one of the 3 items in my post #2 above apply, you're tied in for 12 months.

 

If you need to cancel at the end of the 12 months, give them 2 month's notice in accordance with (d) of the T&C's.

 

I don't see that you have a decent challenge on this matter.

 

:-)
