    • 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.

My mother had an current account with Lloyd's TSB back in 2005,

we then moved houses in July 2006 and

 

as far as my mum was concered she had told them about the move and closed the account.

 

She had already opened a current account with HSBC in as she wanted to bank with the same bank as my father.

 

We were then contacted at our new address sometime in late 2009 I think

and told that were owned them £214 and made this payment over the course of 3 months and that was it!

 

When last year (2013) my mother applied for a credit card and she was turned down so

 

we ordered her credit history from the 3 credit reference agencies and

everything was good and clear expect the Lloyd's default

 

which was defaulted April 2009

 

which means it will fall off April 2015!

 

Back to when we got our first letter of saying we owned then £214

we asked then what is was made up of and we were told that the account went into a overdraft of £1.94p

which then accumulated charges.

 

My mother now has a Vanquis Card with a credit limit of £1,000

which has run for over a year with a 39.9%APR all because of one unfair default!

 

Other then that her credit file is excellent with lots of finished greens and active greens!

 

Do you think I should SAR them?

So the timeline on this is that no activity on the current account since 2006.

 

The bank have been adding charges and presumably interest to those charges since that date. What type of account is it and why would they be applying charges, was there an outstanding balance - perhaps a direct debit that continued to be paid or was this one of htose accounts that you needed to pay a fee for ?

 

They did not apply a default marker to the account until 3 years later ?

 

It might be worth making a formal complant to LTSB - Head your letter FORMAL COMPLAINT - send it to the CEO at their Head/Registered office.

 

IMHO, you should have challenged the charges when they contacted you in 2009 and asked for a breakdown.

No the account didn't have any direct debts active on it and it was an overdraft of £1.94 that got bigger with their own charges and at the time in 2009 we didn't want to make a fuss and just wanted to end but last year we realised it was on the credit file and this year we want to apply for a mortgage but can't because of this stupid default! Over household income is very good but banks look at credit files more than anything! & yeah they didn't apply the default maker until 3 years after.
