    • Hi all my wife has today been accused of shoplifting a few weeks ago at John Lewis. Police called today and said an allegation has been made after viewing cctv. My wife has been invited in for interview to clear things up (there words) I asked how her how they knew how to find her, she admitted she had been caught before in Waitrose in 2018 and banned from them and JL. I can’t begin to tell you how shocked I am but I need to support her and don’t know where to turn. She has confessed to me that she has stolen the odd thing over the past year from JL and is now worried that they will look back and charge here for stealing all the items. The police say the allegation is for two small items of clothing. My wife of 40yrs  I know like the back of my hand has been through hell and has lost all her family over the past few years, she has serious health issues and is on strong medication. I can only put this down to this being a big factor. I really need to know what to do to help her, if she admits,  will it be dealt with on the spot or will courts be involved. Should she seek immediate legal advice or see the solicitor at the police station(that’s what they have offered) Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks for reading and I hope it’s easy to understand 
    • Thank you. BTW, who paid Arval's administration fee? Arval - who seem to be total idiots - refer to what was received as a "parking fine" or "penalty charge notice" when it is neither, it is an invoice from a private company.
    • Hi guys, Bought BMW a couple of weeks ago. Advertised as FSH (I have a copy of the advert) Got home, set the Idrive up, alass, no service history, only pre delivery inspection. Car is a 2019 with 77,000 miles. When viewing, I was also told it has just had a full service. Been chasing the garage and been fobbed off last week. We will send it you, blah, blah.   Sent hem a shirty text today saying if they do not sort it, I would go to Trading Standards. They just called saying they will take the car back. Thing is, I really like it and I want to keep it. Would would be the best outcome here, do I ask for money back? Or is the only real option taking the car back? It will pain me as ive paid insurance, tax, had it coded as it was playing up a little, filled oil and AdBlue. Its not much, but its just perfect for me.   Thanks in advance all.

    • 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,

 

purchased a Range cooker (gas + electric) in June 2012. After about 9 months the central ring started playing up and they sent out an engineer a few times as it would start working and then stop again.

 

After about 15 months the oven/grill selector switch burned out.

 

We purchased the item for £500 and the retailers answer was pretty much what can you expect for £500? I believe that there is some element of the Sale of Goods that says items must last a 'reasonable amount of time' in accordance to the price paid. I'd deem something for £500 to last more than 15 months!

 

I sent the below after doing some research on the internet:

 

Complaint about faulty goods

 

I bought from you on 11th July 2012 a Chefmaster Range Cooker with accessories for £586.

 

I now find the goods have the following faults:

 

1. Faulty oven/grill selector switch

2. Faulty central burner

 

Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) goods you supply must be of satisfactory quality. As there was a problem with the goods when I bought them, I request that you provide me with a replacement.

 

I have made several attempts via telephone call to resolve this matter but have not been able to. This has been an ongoing matter for the last 7 to 8 weeks. Prior to this we’ve already have several engineer visits in order to attempt to resolve an inoperable central burner ring.

 

I look forward to receiving your satisfactory proposals for settlement of my claim within seven days of the date of this letter.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Letter was sent recorded post a few weeks ago so the time for them to act has elapsed. My question is - can I proceed with a Moneyclaim online for the amount or is there something else I can do? Quite happy to do the former by paying the fees etc.

 

Thanks for your help all :)

Sorry...... do you think I should press ahead with the Moneyclaim? Any 'technical' terms I need to include in there as I've never done one before. I guess beyond this, if they contest it, I'll need to furnish the relevant legal stuff to the judge as in my experience (in parking cases) they are not very clued up on everything.

 

Retailer is:

Thanks for your help :)

 

I've not found any type of twitter feed etc aside from a Fecebook page where I've posted a simple "please be wary of purchasing from Interia. Currently trying to claim money back under Sale of Goods Act"

 

I have found a template for a 'Letter before Action' but it's geared more towards bank etc. Is there a template in existence for Moneyclaims?

 

Thanks again

Hi jaipal

 

Have you got any e-mails regarding your complaints from Interia Products Limited? How did you pay for the Range Cooker?

 

Hi - no emails sent/received. They are a local business so mainly all over the phone. It was paid for on a Visa debit card.

 

Trawled some threads but still struggling to find a SOGA LBA ... will keep looking

 

dx100uk - tried most avenues of contact but not that one - not sure who the CEO is or how to get a hold of him.

Cheers for that silverfox - to be honest as it's been floating around for a while I'd rather just follow up with an LBA and then progress to court stage. Wife is moaning at me due to not being able to bake in the oven!! :)

 

I just need a suitable LBA now

A simple letter stating that as they have previously ignored your representations you formally give them 14 days to resolve your dispute. If they choose to ignore the letter then you will file court papers with no further recourse to them.

 

There is no dedicated template letter as each situation is unique so you will have to do your own. By all means post it up here for a critique and then send it by RM Signed For to ensure you have proof they received it.

 

Some companies will react to a LBA but others don't think you are serious until the court claim hits their mat.

Thanks mate - here's what I've quickly knocked up...

 

Interia Products Limited

3rd January 2014

 

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Letter Before Court Action

 

Further to the letter sent to yourselves on the 3rd January giving you seven days to propose resolution, I have had no contact from yourselves.

 

I wish to inform you that should no proposals be forthcoming within 14 days from the above date, I will be proceeding with a County Court Claim against yourselves. You have failed to meet obligations as set out under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) which states goods you supply must be of satisfactory quality.

 

I trust this matter will be given your utmost attention.

 

Yours faithfully

I would make it 14 days from receipt of the letter as you will be able to check on the RM website. Otherwise short and sweet.

Forgot to add. It is unlikely that you will get a replacement as you have had 'enjoyment' of the product since 2012. They should offer a repair and if they cannot repair to offer a partial refund. It may be that they do offer a replacement gratis.

 

Have you contacted anyone to find out how much it would cost to repair?

I did have a qualified repair technician in but the difficulty with this is that the manufacturer has gone bust! These cookers do appear to have a known issue as my parents-in-law have the exact same one and their middle ring has also stopped working.

 

Unless somebody can find me a compatible selector switch it's pretty much unrepairable I think - you can 'bodge' it but as its an electrical product and I have 2 young kids I don't want to take that chance.

 

I'll go with the above and make the amendment you suggested on the date of receipt :)

 

cheers mate

In my opinion, yes. Others may disagree as they may see it as a waste of time but, I see it as trying to ensure everyone is aware.

 

I would be saying something like:

 

Dear Mrs delaney,

Please find enclosed copies of my communications with your store regarding my issues which have not been resolved with the store and of which you may be unaware of etc...

 

copy in the original letter and the LBA.

 

It can do no harm and may do some good.

  • 5 months later...

Hi - the court date is schedule for September but I think they want to resolve it before then. I know they've offered my MIL a figure of £200'ish (for the same issue on a cooker she'd purchased).

 

Can I ask what the issue is around? Maybe we can possibly help each other out - I know they don't have a leg to stand on as retailers! Especially when I know of 2 range cookers with exactly the same fault!!

 

PM me if you wish :)

 

Cheers

We purchased some bathroom vanity units from their ebay site but when they arrived they are different to the picture/description. I have contacted them but they just ignore me. Just about to send a letter giving them 14 days to resolve the problem.
