    • 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 all,

 

I have a quick question on behalf of a friend..

 

She is currently employed with the council however has handed her notice in to finish sometime in July.

 

Her contract only requires 4 weeks notice so this is fine.

 

Due to changing circumstance she now wishes to finish earlier i.e just work the minimum 4 weeks notice.

 

She has been told she can't change it now because shes already given notice to finish in July.

 

Can anyone clarify if this is correct.

 

I would assume she could simply retract her original notice and give them a new one providing she is still giving the correct 4 weeks period of notice etc.

 

Thanks in advance

 

-J

she can hand in her notice again as an amendment she would still be within the time in her contract. If it was the other way round then they could say no, you cant stay any longer. The entire point is she is saying that she is ending her contract to work on such and sucha a date as per the agreement. If the employer says no you have to work another month then they are breaking that contract. It might be awkward for them but that is tough.

Some employers like schools have a contract that saya you give a minimum of 1 months notice but you must work to the end of the current term so people either have to pack up in the summer holidays or be forced to work another 3+ months. I cant see that there would be such a rider in her contract

Hi,

 

Thank you for the reply. It re-affirms what I thought. I see the point of schools and possibly other employers having such riders in their contract however I don't believe this to be the case. I think a double check of her contract will confirm this.

 

Thanks again for your input
