    • 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.

I have an interview regarding a new JSA Claim, now am looking after my son which he is on ESA support group however he has never applied for DLA/PIP so not getting any carers allowance for him.

 

Question is would i be required to look for work and attend regular interviews as part of my JSA claim? Even so am looking after my son full time? I’m not sure how this works out.

You can restrict the hours available, and the type of work in order to look after your son - However, you would need to be available for some of the time in order to claim Job Seeker's Allowance. If your caring responsibilities are 24/7, then you'd be unable to claim JSA.

 

If you do claim JSA, then you must be able to demonstrate that you are actively seeking employment and can not turn down a reasonable offer of work - Reasonable in this context would be in line with any restrictions you have in your Job Seeker's Agreement and/or interferes with your caring responsibilities.

 

It may well be worth your while seeing if you can claim carer's allowance on behalf of your son - Whilst not as high as JSA, it may make all the difference to you.

You would be able to put some restrictions to your job searches, but the DWP would not accept you as a carer as such. In order for you to be accepted as a full time carer your son must demonstrate to the DWP that he has quite severe care needs by way of being awarded PIP (DLA if he is under 16).

 

 

From the JC's point of view here we a have someone that is said to need full time care but hasn't bothered to claim the correct benefits to prove it.
