    • Also, what was the cost of the job which you carried out and what was the likely value of the repairs required by the snagging list
    • Thanks for your reply. After you didn't respond to the the paploc, what was their next step? Did they resend the paploc? I feel it's like others have suggested, it's a 'fish' to get someone to respond. Ref the email, I don't think I've ever had one, even when J and P took over with the first round of comms, then I received two within in a few days (both with same info) and a few days later, the J and P paploc. Any guesses what they're thinking changing between J and P to IDR and vice versa?
    • Please explain what you mean when you say that he hadn't followed pre-action protocols. How much of the original spec that you worked to do you have in writing.  Do you have photos? What other written evidence do you have?    
    • Hi. @BankFodder should be around later to advise on this, he often deals with this kind of case. As an outsider, it sounds to me as if the client could have changed his mind about what he wanted, once you'd built to the agreed spec. HB

    • 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.

City demands answers over bedroom tax cash

GLASGOW council leaders want urgent answers from the UK Government in a row over cash to beat the bedroom tax.

 

 

 

The UK Government has admitted it made an error in calculating how much six councils would receive for so-called Discretionary Housing Payments (DHP).

The payments, made by local authorities, are meant to help ease the problems being faced by people hit by the bedroom tax.

 

But an error by the Department of Work And Pensions means six Scottish councils are having to re-think their budgets.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said it is still unsure how the error will affect their budget and has passed the matter on to Cosla, the body which represents all of Scotland's councils.
