    • 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.

Following the annus horribilis of 2013

 

when Sobell went awol in may 2013,

to be replaced by GPB Solicitors,

who subsequently were closed down by the SRA, for dishonest practice,

 

it appears on the Law Society website that the infamous Graham White are no more at KT14 6ND.

I did find it rather strange that 2 firms of solicitors were registered at Roxburghe at the same time!

 

However Sobell is still registered but at no addresss.

 

Whats going on Hummmmmmm !!! !:noidea:

You can retain your registration as a solicitor without having to practice. That's not to say that is what he is doing. If you are not practising then you do not have to disclose a business address or the details of the company you are employed by (if not a legal practice).

 

That smells like retirement to me.

Has anyone checked the Births, Marriages & Deaths register?

 

Im keeping a close eye on this one.....Sobell registered at KT14 6ND in 1962

 

This is what it states on the Roxburghe website...."Roxburghe is one of the leading debt collection agencies in the UK and Credit Today Consumer DCA of the Year 2009. Since the company's inception in 1961, Roxburghe has continually evolved and now offers its clients and account holders the most professional and efficient range of receivables management solutions available"??

 

Maybe just maybe, sobell is involved somehow ??

 

The osner family only became directors in the 80's & 90's and there has been lots of activity at that address including HFO, GW, GPB, paymypcn and PCN NW.

 

It may all well be legal and above board, but I for one dont't buy it.....even more so when the press went down in 2013 looking for GW and were told "There's nobody here of that name"

 

I can pick up the yellow pages and find any solicitor and visit them, without the shady goings on.......

 

Lets just see what transpires and who the new solicitors will be (Well on the letterhead)

Maybe Sobell is involved maybe he isn't.

 

Solicitors fulfil may honourable and upstanding roles for which they are required to maintain their registrations but you'll not find them in the Yellow Pages and nor can you knock their door and make an appointment.

 

Nit-picking I know but I doubt that Sobell registered at KT14 6ND in 1962 because of course the postcode system didn't exist at the time. :wink:
