    • 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.

I'm afraid that I am completely out of the loop with this thread. Could you remind us what the relevant dates are in respect of the sum claimed and have they given you a proper statement of energy which has been used?

Hi Bankfodder,

 

I recently posted a recap via this post.

I am attaching the £3k electricity bill that Eon presented to us in Dec 2021 which was deemed to be 'back billing' here by Dx100UK. 

It is unclear if any reading was taken by Eon during those times when the Meter was shared and sat in the vacant (locked) chicken farm next doors (not owned by us).

We know we were never able to provide any meter readings and had been paying a standard monthly charge via Direct Debit.

EON have now handed it over to LLowel.

Many thanks

Hi Bankfodder,

 

1. Dec 2018 We moved to this house and started direct debit for estimated charge.

2. Jul 2020 Our own smart meter installed, old shared meter no longer serving our property.

3. Dec 2021 Date of Final Bill from EON £3277.28 (for period 13.6.20 to 28.7.20 attached)

4. Dec 2021 I call EON. I am asked to prove I do not own the property housing the shared meter.

5. Dec 2021 I raise an SAR with EON which returns with all estimated bills + other docs (attached)

6. Sep 2022 Llowel sends a letter about them handling this account here on.

7. Nov 2022 Llowel sends a letter today considering legal action.

 

Please let me know if you need more info on this. 

Many thanks

Thanks DX

I am very worried. You think they are going to sue me?

 

already answered weeks ago. NO!! they'll lose!!

 

if EON sold it for 10p=£1, why did they not do so themselves.

 

BF its a long complicated story about a supply via a chicken shed.
