    • 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.

Not if theyve already notified you in the award notice of what your payments will be.

Alternatively, a letter may still be winging its way in the post.

Yes they will pay us but that's not the point, what I was asking should they let you know in advance, that the payments are going to stop or reduce so you can cancel any D/D you have going out and budget, for the loss of money you are going to lose. like I said it left us with £8 , the lads bus pass is £10 a week so he can go to collage he also needs £20 for food , the daughter needs £9 for school dinners ,and we need

to eat.

Hi suziebear67

What a thing to happen.

Your employers seem to have told them you are earning more than you are.

You have rung the Tax Credit people to explain that.And they have accepted that it seems,but will be 2 weeks till payments resume.

Your last payment should have been last Wednesday but your Tax Credits was stopped or suspended.

No letter was received by you,but may be on the way.Wonderful.

So at least a week before you get a payment and may take longer.

 

Your Direct Debits went out and were paid but only left you with 8 pounds to survive till payments resume.

And you have children.This is terrible for you.

I would ring them now and politely,i know at times like this it is hard to keep your cool and ask them to urgently lift the stop or suspension.

I believe this can be done manually,in some circumstances.And if possible record the conversation.2 Mobiles or something like that.

As they record calls for training purposes they say.

 

Also i would ask your employer what happened that they gave incorrect info to the Tax Credit office if this is the case.

Something clearly went wrong somewhere.Mixed up to say the least.

The HR dept i believe would deal with such things.And ask for a advance of salary due to the turmoil you are going through.

Just a idea.They may be able to help.

 

If it comes to any charges from Direct Debits etc whether Bank or company that do not receive their usual payment you must ring them explain and hopefully they will lift any charge they have made as a special circumstance.

In the meantime try to arrange Direct Debits to be suspended for a month.I do not see what else you can do.

Perhaps others know a way round this problem you may have shortly if payments do not resume fast enough.

 

As for the question can Tax Credits stop payments or Suspend Payments without prior notification,the only answer i can give after a little experience of that problem i have yet to write about,yes they can and do to many people.

I hope your problem soon gets sorted.Tell us when you ring,if you do what they say.

People rely heavily on these payments and when this kind of problem arises it throws you into turmoil,stresses you and creates possible problems quickly.

Best wishes and a hopeful speedy end to your troubles.

Tawnyowl.

I do apologise.I suppose everyone noticed my mistake.

The post above was directed to filrobbo.:oops:

 

It is so easy to make mistakes.I hope that was a reasonable reply.

If not just tell me.Then i will prepare better for the next time i delve into the Working Tax world.Where mistakes can be made.

And if you are not happy with the Tax Credit people and decisions you can complain.

They seem quite willing to learn from any mistakes they make,they say.As they did in my case.Will write about it soon.

Thank tawnyowl I have now got payments I was told over the phone that they could not make payments it takes 2 weeks to go through the system I made phone call to my MP tax credits In bank today, its not the first time they have made mistakes with me, in 2007 payments stopped because they got me mixed up with someone in Australia, you cant make this up, then I was getting letters from them with different national insurance number, it went on for 5 years they were taking £2000 off T/C for over payments. we did get it sorted we got £10,000 back a big letter of apology for all the mistakes they have made, and it will not happen again, the next years tax credits award send we have been over paid and that we had to pay back £12,000 because I was in Australia, I don't even have a passport. And these people sort out your taxers.

If your circumstances havent changed then neither should the TC claim.

 

Seems there is someone with very similar details to yourself in Oz and the 2 keep getting crossed and confusing whichever employee looks at your claim.
