    • DQ done and will be sent today you guys always advise never to sign anything sent to the DCA as they can do all sorts with it but the DQ will have signature on it ??🙈
    • Have you had any confirmation in writing that they have given you the extra time. I've never heard of a telephone/verbal acknowledgement of service before. The County Courts can be very helpful – but they are also under resourced and very inefficient. I think I would only feel comfortable about this if you had something in writing but even if it was to some email it would still leave me uncertain. The last thing you want is to find that you been promised extra time on the telephone – but this doesn't make it through to the computer system and your client then applies for a judgement in default which you then have to try and set aside. In principle of course you could even apply for a strikeout on the basis that the protocol hadn't been followed but this will require an application notice – probably about 250 quid or maybe a bit more nowadays – and although technically speaking if the pre-action protocol hadn't been followed this should result in an immediate dismissal of the case, if it turned out that the client had sent something and it was lost in the post, for instance, or even if the client then came to have said something, this could cause uncertainty and difficulties. If you were to make that kind of application then frankly it would carry much more weight if it was accompanied by a draft defence and for that you would need to see the claim. Also, if you tried to ask for a dismissal on the basis that the protocol hadn't been followed, this would require a hearing and that could easily take several months to be heard so that you are up in the air. I think you should certainly put it in writing to the County Court that you have been unable to access the claim form. You should do this by email straightaway. I think the best thing to do is to make absolutely sure that the County Court has it in writing that you have received notification of the claim but you can't access the claim, that they have said to you that your verbal acknowledgement is sufficient to gain the extra 14 days – and then when you eventually get the claim form, we can consider the defence and also put in the dismissal/strikeout application at the same time which will cost you no money at all because it will be part of the defence and if you have a cogent basis for resisting the claim then the judge is likely to be supported. Also, just asking for a dismissal of the claim on the basis of no letter of claim leaves it wide open for your client to come back and try again in a more considered and structured and effective way. If a judge dismisses the claim on the basis that they find your defence more compelling, then that is the end of the story for the client. And that is what you really want.

    • 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 I have received a PCN contravention code 01 for parking on double yellow lines as shown in the diagram below, are these lines enforceable i.e. do I appeal or pay? any help appreciated

Well since you aren't allowed to park on double lines then yes it is 100% enforceable. You can stop ONLY to pick up someone or drop someone off but must not remain there.

 

 

Just curious, what did you think they meant?

Hi Sorry yes I parked where I should not, at 21:00 at night thinking no traffic enforcement around at that time, my mistake, my question is as shown in the picture below what does the intersecting line halfway down the double yellow lines mean, and does this make the double yellow lines none enforceable, just trying to avoid a paying a ticket really . What does the line highlighted by the red arrow mean??

Looks like some road works have cut off the end of the markings, then new lines have been painted over.

 

You can appeal and try to argue this, but it will take a lot of effort to try and fight this, effort that will likely not be worth it in the end.

From your pic, I would suggest that the transverse line is where the DYL's previously finished and have since been extended.

 

That doesn't make them unenforceble. However if they have been extended, the Council would also need to amend the Traffic Regulation Order for that street to cover the extended area. Chances are they have, but they may not have done.

 

TRO's are available to view at the Council's offices

Hi Thanks for the comments I think on this occasion I will get my credit card out:sad:

 

Agree, could get quite costly if you try to defend....

The council will only argue that the DYL's are obvious and so is there meaning regardless of any errors to the DYL's, those types of arguments

won't wash any longer unfortunately...

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Exactly, and the courts have said the same when a defence was entered that the lines were broken with wear. It cost a lot more than just paying it anyway.

It costs nothing to appeal. Give it a try.

 

Soon as poss, ask the council for a copy of the Traffic Regulation Order for that street, and check that it states yellow lines right the way along. It might not, in which case, you have a slam-dunk win on appeal.

 

If it does, appeal anyway, arguing that the markings are not correct. You never know, you might get a result. If not, nothing lost - pay then.

Really?

 

I fail to see how that is good advice Jambo, DYL's are there for a reason, whether broken or worn it matters not, their intention is clear.

Yes, they are there for a reason and I'm not advising the OP parks on them. But in this case, no harm was done, and the OP asked for advice on whether he could appeal. Well, he can, so I gave him some pointers. But you're right in that he shouldn't have parked there.

?

 

generally, loading can also be allowed on double yellows depending on the markings/signs etc.
