    • 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 guys, i've been trying to register to other forums (more than 14 days!!) but cant even register, thank this website i was able to register and post for help!!

 

I have a PCN here with correct picture and vehicle registration number, but the contravention address is not printed clearly, cannot even read it. The stated junction does not exist; Colney Hatch Lane with Alexandra Road.

 

The juniction with Colney Hatch Lane is Alexandra PARK road, not Alexandra Road. Although Alexadra Road exists near Colny Hatch Lane, it is not a junction with it.

 

google maps coords: 51.603039, -0.142909 (this is Alexandra Road, Colney Hatch Lane is near it but not a junction).

 

I don't have permission to post links or images as i'm new here, but basically on the letter the only part of the location is readable is Colney Hatch Lane j/w Alexandra £$£$@£%^$%. That last part is jumbled up like that, also no postcode. The online details held also states Alexandra Road N10, which is wrong.

 

Do i have grounds for this? i believe i do with the incorrect location but i don't know how to word it. I have like 2 days left (thanks to the other forums). Many thanks.

First, If you can do it in time, I would check with the council what the official name of "Alexandra Park Road" is, and that it is distinct from "Alexandra Road". There will be a department called Highways or something who will have maps and so on, who will be able to tell you.

 

Then appeal on the basis that there has been an impropriety. Explain what you have said here, and that no such location exists.

 

I'm not sure how this will pan out, but you have a decent chance.

thanks guys for replying so quick!!

 

@mikeymack2002

I totally missed that one!! thanks.

 

@Jamberson

I didn't have time to go to the council or phone them up, but i found some details from their website:

 

"The register lists all streets within Haringey, who is responsible for maintaining them and whether the road has been adopted or not."

 

When i search for "Alexandra Road", this is the list returned: (i've only copied the ones with N10)

Alexandra Road.jpg

 

Search with "Alexandra Park Road":

Alexandra Park Road.jpg

 

Well, with the first image, Grosvenor Rd connects with Alexandra PARK road (coords 51.598833, -0.137501) if thats what the search result is referring to (aarrggg!!), it is route B106 but not stated in the search (a bonus?).

 

I have never challenged a pcn so how would i word it? What would be gounds for appealing be? something like this at the end will be ok? or a bit overkill? Found this on the net:

 

Should you reject my appeal please be warned that i will constitute any further unwanted contact as harassment and will sue as per Ferguson v British Gas Trading Ltd [2009] EWCA Civ 46 (10 February 2009) , Roberts v Bank of Scotland Plc (Rev 1) [2013] EWCA Civ 882 (11 June 2013) and Bank of Scotland v Johnson (Rev 1) [2013] EWCA Civ 982 (19 June 2013).

Ditto what Michael said about the harassment stuff. Totally counter-productive.

 

When you write an appeal, it doesn't have to be anything complicated or legal. Just explain in plain English you received a PCN in xxxx. However the PCN gives the street name as xxx which is in a different location. Therefore, the PCN is invalid - and please would they cancel it.

 

Just a letter along those lines, quoting the PCN number and your name and address.
