    • 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.

If a couple have a joint JSA claim and the one who doesn't sign on (i.e not the lead claimant) goes abroad for a few weeks does this trigger migration to UC, either on leaving or returning?

How long is a "few weeks" ?

 

What benefits are you currently claiming ?

 

Do you plan on staying within the EU or going further afield ?

 

Depending on the benefits being claimed, the length of the trip, and whether it is outside the EU or not, you might not have to transition to UC on your return. https://www.gov.uk/claim-benefits-abroad might answer some of your questions.

I think you need to speak to the Job Centre work coach. It would depend on current claim basis and how long abroad. If you are outside the UK for more than a month,it can affect benefit entitlement.

 

No mention of children, housing benefit, what other benefits are being claimed etc.

 

Check the Job Seekers agreement and conditions of claim. if the non signee does not have any conditions to comply with, then it might be worth looking at conditions of other benefits being claimed, to see whether it is necessary to advise of temporary absence.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi,

 

One child ' CTC claim, no HB

 

Full-service UC area.

 

Length of stay 6 weeks outside EU. Main claimant not traveling.

 

Partner going abroad has no claimant commitment but about once a year has an interview at JC.

 

JC coach doesn't know much about UC , they only deal with JSA.

 

Obviously will be telling JC partner has gone abroad, so joint claim becomes single then on return becomes joint again. Can this still be done or will it trigger migration?

Would think that JSA would remain open and not trigger to UC as the claimany signing on has not had a change in circumstances.

 

I would check whether the JC needs to be made aware of the absence from the UK at the moment. It might complicate matters, as absence of over a month might require a Habitual Residency Test, if this is ever disclosed in making a benefit claim.

Thanks for the replies,

 

 

I think the Habitual residency thing doesn't come into effect until 3 months absence.

 

 

Actually I've found out 'joint' claim is not the correct term as the absenting partner has no claimant commitment due to childcare so it's a sort of couples claim.

 

 

Really boils down to can JSA claims still be altered (couple to single ,single to couple) as long as main claimant stays the same ( in UC full-service areas).Obviously this is a change in circumstances but not all changes in circumstances trigger migration.

 

 

 

Nothing I have read says they can't unless one of the couple has a single UC claim
