    • 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 there,

 

 

My sister's husband has just this week passed away leaving over £36,000 worth of credit card debt including £16,000 to MBNA. There is no estate and he has pretty much left her in a mess financially, with no savings and just debt after debt.

 

 

She is not a joint signatory and they were his credit card debts and nothing (apart from the fact she was married to him) links her to these. Will she have to pay them off (like she ever could) or do they die with him?

In summary, they would only be liable if the debts were joint EG - If dual signed credit agreement etc.

Debts come out of the persons estate and if there is none then the debts dont get paid simple.

 

Check below for more info.

 

Pay in priority order

Once you have probate or grant of administration, you can use the money in the estate to pay off the debts that aren’t covered by insurance. Paying the debts first is more important than distributing the estate to the heirs.

 

You should pay off the debts in this order of importance:

 

Secured debts, such as the mortgage.

Reasonable funeral costs and the costs of administering the estate.

Unsecured debts, such as credit cards, utility bills, unpaid rent, Council Tax and other taxes, and repayment of overpaid benefits.

If there are assets, such as a car or a house that if sold, could go towards paying off the debts, it’s an option worth considering.

 

If there are more debts than the estate can pay back, this is called an ‘insolvent estate’. In this situation, it is best to seek the advice of a solicitor or a probate specialist.

In theory, debts when the person dies should no longer form part of his/ her estate (whatever remains from the dead person), however, it still could lead to claims again the estate. It's a lot of money, ie 36k so the creditor may try to claim it as a debt. However, as it's not joint debt (ie not joint and severally liable), any claim attempts are not likely to succeed. If there is a Will and the Executor (legal way of distributing estate) is appointed but he/ she has not placed in the London Gazette for any debtors to come forward, it 'could' lead to claims against any beneficiaries. This law is the Administration of Estates Act 1925

If the debts have not been advertised in the London Gazette, although in theory they should die the creditor may try and claim the amount. This law comes from the Administration of Estates Act 1925. The fact the debts were in not in both names (joint and severally liable) should mean any claims should fail.

One does not "advertise the debts" in the London Gazette. The purpose of a Section 27 notice placed in the Gazette is to give unknown creditors opportunity to come forward and stake their claim. The notice serves to protect the personal representatives (often referred to as the executors) from being held liable for these unknown debts. The beneficiaries can still be pursued for these debts if there were money in the estate to cover them.

 

If the estate is insolvent, the general advice to to step away and avoid doing anything that could be deemed as intermeddling and leave the creditors to fight it out amongst themselves.

There are rules that specify in what order money is to be paid out. The priority is the funeral and as far as I am aware there is no limit on the cost. Next are administrators or executors legitimate expenses.

 

If this eats up all the money they can not get a bean.

 

When my wife died- we were long separated but still legally married - I just informed all creditors that there was no money. Not one queried it

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .
