    • Welcome to the Forum. The PCN must be subject to Bye laws as the warning near the bottom of the PCN does not comply with the protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Under Section 9 [2][f[] of the Act it should say: (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given— (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver ,the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; Their version states they are pursuing you as the driver [because of the Bye laws they cannot transfer the liability from the driver to the keeper] even though you are the keeper. Should it go to Court Judges do not accept that the driver and the keeper are the same person. Obviously on many occasions another member of the family may be driving instead of the keeper. Indeed anyone with a valid motor insurance policy is able to drive your car. if any of the three cars were not driven by the keeper they are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is.  as long as they do not divulge who was driving those lovely people at Alliance haven't a hope of winning against them in Court. What a shame. However while those keepers who were not driving are in the clear all is not lost for the other keeper drivers. Alliance still have to prove who was driving which is difficult providing those keepers do not appeal.  It is quite often that on appeal the keeper may say "I entered the car park at....."  immediately giving away that they were the driver. Plus even if you appeal it won't be accepted as a] they lose £100 straight away and b] mostly all the major car parking companies are dishonest scrotes. In the meantime you will be on the receiving end of threatening letters from Alliance, unregulated debt collectors and fifth, sixth or even lower rated solicitors all trying to frighten the life out of you to cough up. They can all be safely ignored since if you don't contact any of them they don't know who was driving so have no information that the can use in Court to identify the driver. Some time in the future they may send you a Letter of Claim which must not be ignored. Just let us know and we will advise a suitable snotty letter to send them which will show that you are not afraid of them and are happy to turn up in court knowing that you will win. Sorry it was a bit long winded.

    • 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 am posting this topic on the 6th day of the 3-5 day procedure. 

 

I ordered a server for my home to store all my photos, videos ect.

 

On Friday 7th I ordered a NAS  server with two 4tb Hard Drives, one refurbished, and one brand new.  I put both drives in the NAS and the server came up with a warning saying the brand new drive was failing and should be replaced immediately.  I checked online to see if there was a simple solution, put the faulty drive in both server bays to eliminate a faulty socket on the server and established the drive must have been damaged/dropped prior to me receiving it.

 

 So I called laptops direct on Sat 8th and they said because it was a weekend they were unable to help because the return has to be authorised by the tech team, so on Monday I raised a ticket and on Tuesday 9th they asked for a photo/video of the problem, I duly obliged with an image of the server screen saying clearly the drive was failing, and sent a message saying I had eliminated the possibility of the fault being with the server.   Every time they send a message it takes 24hrs to get a reply.   Later the same day a lady emailed back, she then thanked me and said she was glad I had solved the problem and closed the return.  I then had to call back and open a new support ticket and was again asked for a photo/video and I am still awaiting an email authorising its return, despite this I took it to the warehouse Wednesday and insisted they take the drive back and test it themselves.

 

Should they be doing this, I thought if an item was faulty upon arrival they had a duty to refund or replace, instead they are making me wait 3-5 days for the tech team to test the drive.  I did a simple quick test which took 3 minutes and established the drive was faulty.  The online literature states if the drive states it has bad sectors more than 2% as the server stated it had even if it can be restored to a working state you should not trust the drive and it should be returned.

Of course they have a duty – but why should that stop them ignoring it?

Under the consumer rights act if a defect manifests itself within the first 30 days of the contract then you are entitled to a refund or a replacement at your option.

Write to them and tell them that you are asserting your rights under the consumer rights act and that you want a refund/replacement and you want it within seven days.

Tell them that they must arrange the replacement immediately and also the collection of the defective item.

Tell them that if they will not comply then you will sue them at the expiry of 14 days. Tell them that your claim will include a claim for interest as well as costs.

Head the letter up – Letter of Claim – and only send this if you are prepared to go through with your threat to bring a legal action.

Even if you have to issue the claim, it scarcely imaginable that they will not put their hands up and pay.

Don't muck around – but I have to say you shouldn't set such high hopes for this kind of company who are essentially – box-shifters.

Post your draft letter of claim here

Read our customer services guide. Record your call. You've been here a long time so I expect that you are doing that anyway.

Make lots of notes. Confirm the conversation in writing. Make sure that you have a name of the person you are speaking with.

Read our customer services guide just in case that in 12 years, you haven't done that yet

I have been around a while I am just mot the little activist I used to be and allot has changed over the years, companies are not as quick to take responsibility as they used to be.  I called them and quoted the consumer act, they seemed willing to refund without further delay but llike I said they have nw lost my item, I wait see what the manager has to say.

When you speak to the manager – maybe you should make it clear that there is a letter of claim on its way and that you won't be waiting any longer than 14 days.

If you had a letter of claim ready, you could ask for the manager's email and email it to them directly during the conversation.

I suspect telling them that was a mistake as they have misinterpreted it to mean that there was no fault with what they sold you.  Hence...

I think you've confused them.  Probably not difficult...
