    • 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 there,

 

Andrew James are enforcing for a parking ticket which was from March 2013. The car was sold not long after, and I also moved address.

 

Andrew James state they have sent letters and made visits to the former address to get the ticket paid for.

 

For some reason they have now identified one of my gf's work premises as my home and are enforcing the debt there threatening to remove goods for auction...

 

I have nothing to do with either her business, nor the address in question. Also the car was never registered to the business or the address they are enforcing.

 

I do not dispute owing £112 for the parking ticket, however the £340 of charges Andrew James have added by sending letters and bailiffs to addresses where I have not been present seems unfair.

 

I have spoken to Andrew James and was told - Pay up or they will continue to enforce my gf's business....

 

I spoke to the Director of Transport at the local authority who has said he cannot do anything at all for me and suggested I pay the charges.

 

 

Could someone please let me know their thoughts regarding this matter? I have tried the citizens advice on numerous occasions but can never seem to get through to them.

 

Thanks

I think they are telling you porkie pies to put the pressure on you to pay up.

 

They can't take stuff that is not yours and they know it. They just hope you do not.

 

A Bailiff expert will help you soon but in my limited experience I have heard things like this before and it's always lies to get you to pay up.

My 2 main queries are

 

Can they take things from gf's shop - they say I need to prove goods aren't mine...

Can they add £340 of charges for visiting the wrong address?

Is it my job to prove they aren't my goods? And can they enforce against an address that has no ties to me at all?

 

Your GF may be better swearing a Stat Dec and sending copies to the council and the bailiff, I

This is a simple matter where you need to file and Out of Time witness statement with the Traffic Enforcement Centre. You need to call the Traffic Enforcement Centre this morning and they will send the necessary form to you by email. When you get through to TEC ignore the 'prompts' on the phone and wait to speak with an operator. It is vitally important that you ask the operator to CONFIRM the date on which they gave authority to the council to issue a warrant.

 

You then need to ask for the address on the warrant. If this is your CURRENT address can you ask the operator for the date on which authority was given to re-issue the warrant.

 

Please post back once you have this information.

 

Once you have completed the OTT it will need to be sent to TEC by email and as long as it is sent by 4pm all enforcement should be on hold by midday tomorrow (there is a misconception that enforcement will cease by 4pm. This is not the case at all).

Just to confirm - would this be the traffic enforcement section of my local authority?

TEC said the only address they had was my previous address and they couldnt comment as to why the enforcement agents were enforcing at my gf's work address.

It is academic, if OOT successful, ticket should revert to the pre enforcement stage, and allow the ticket to be paid at the original rate or contested again. All fees should therfore be void and Andrew James out of the picture.

Do I see a post April 6th fee (£235) for enforcement which commenced before that date ?

You do lamma, however, as there was no levy it may be that they class the previous visits as Compliance Stage, and therefore they will say they are entitled to apply the Enforcement fee. However if OOT accepted they can go swivel as the fees are nullified.
