    • File converted to PDF. Don't use .odt/.docx files here as they contain all your personal info in the file details. You can save as .PDF directly using word etc or upload the file to the links found in our guide. It's a shame you didn't come here in the first instance as we could have helped with the N244 application. No matter though. I agree with jk that you didn't follow the court orders and hence the strike out was inevitable. Essentially what they wanted you to do was draft your defence to prove you had a compelling argument to try and defend the claim, instead you wrote why you ignored the claimform. Don't worry though, everyone makes mistakes when going through legal proceedings, especially if it's the first time or if something else in life is going on. I don't think you'll be able to apply for another N244 to set-aside the judgement but others may be able to comment further on this. You received the Statutory Demand by email on 5th January, did you submit form IAA within 18 days?
    • Hi Just Received a response from eurogarages as below also received another chaser from met and another from debt recovery plus… What are your thoughts any help appreciated-  Good morning,   I have had a response from MET this morning.   MET have confirmed they will not be cancelling the charge this is because you parked in the carpark and went over to McDonalds.   Unfortunately there is nothing further that I can do and any further contact will need to go directly to [email protected]   Many thanks,   Heather Anne Christie  ‑  Starbucks Area Manager FTG Area/Regionals   [email protected]  
    • From BPA Code of Practice Section 17:  Keying Errors B) Major Keying Errors Examples of a major keying error could include: • Motorist entered their spouse’s car registration - if it was his spouse's car • Motorist entered something completely unrelated to their registration • Motorist made multiple keying errors (beyond one character being entered incorrectly) • Motorist has only entered a small part of their VRM, for example the first three digits In these instances we would expect that such errors are dealt with appropriately at the first appeal stage, especially if it can be proven that the motorist has paid for the parking event or that the motorist attempted to enter their VRM or were a legitimate user of the car park (eg a hospital patient or a patron of a restaurant).   I suspect this had something to do with it .... if so I guess he has to take it on the chin!  🙁
    • reading the order is quite difficult for me. this is a letter (names and addresses taken out) that i sent in which is what i assumed i needed too.   court.pdf
    • Thanks for the message jk2054   I have just been drafting what I want to say and I think its best to focus purely on the supremacy of contract. The reason being that I dont want the judge to start focusing on other parts of my witness statement when surely just the supremacy of contract section alone should be enough to get this dismissed.    The crux of my defense revolves around the principle of Supremacy of Contract. When I purchased my flat in December 2016, the contract explicitly included ownership of parking spot 112, as delineated in the lease documentation provided in Exhibit 1. This documentation unequivocally establishes my right to use and occupy this parking space. Furthermore, the subsequent exhibits, particularly Exhibit 3, clearly depict the marked boundaries of parking spot 112, corroborating my ownership as stated in the lease agreement. Additionally, the official register of title, presented in Exhibit 4, reinforces this ownership claim. Moreover, I draw the court's attention to relevant legal precedents, such as Pace v Mr N and Link Parking v Ms P, which demonstrate that parking companies cannot override a tenant's right to park on designated property. These cases serve as persuasive authorities supporting my argument regarding the Supremacy of Contract in residential parking disputes. It is my contention that the absence of any contractual obligation to display a permit for parking spot 112 absolves me of any liability in this matter. The claimant's failure to acknowledge my ownership rights in their witness statement further underscores the weakness of their case.

    • 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.

Like it says.


I won't go into detail and I won't enter into any further correpondence but, because of the reception I got for suggestions of sound advice and places where more specialist support could be found - and the debacle in that particular thread that has been unfolding since - I no longer wish to be associated in any way with CAG forums.


I dare say the quality of support is, in general, excellent but I have had enough of the hostility here for my positive contribution on the subject I hold close.


Interestingly, I now note there have been historically other people here, in a similar situation while pursuing a similar topic, who have been subject to the same treatment and have felt the need to react similarly, all of which which only serves to highlight the questions I have over the reliability and impartiality of advice given on this site.


I have requested my membership be deleted on two occasions via the "contact us" facility in my profile but have not even had an acknowledgement, hence the ironic and unfortunate need to make this request, to an organisation championing a Consumer Rights, publically via their own consumer rights forum.


Can a mod please action?


Good bye

We dont delete membership...you can either log in or not its your choice...but in all of your 7 posts in 4 years redirecting another poster to other sites...this we will not tolerate and therefore it was necessary to impose the moderation.


When a poster who has only ever made 7 posts in 4 years and the majority of them all to one thread...starts advising the poster to go elsewhere..it is only right that we impose moderation and protect our subscriber.Of course the subscriber is free to view as as many forums as they wish to seek sound advice...but that must be of his own choice...not being forced to.

We could do with some help from you.
