    • 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.

Late response from expert and waiting to hear if hearing will shift on Wednesday.

Which hearing?

 

Your two threads on this matter are around 800 posts long with numerous hearings and submissions.  We've already got mixed up once and mistaken a preliminary hearing for a final hearing.  People haven't got time to look back through pages & pages to see what stage you're at.  So what is supposed to happen on Wednesday?

Haven't got a clue.  You've never mentioned this new claim before.  How about, like, uploading the paperwork regarding this claim?  And what about, er, doing it for once without having to be asked?  To quote dx -

Sorry if I am not clear,: Its the same claim but was filed wrongly.

 

I discovered that the W/S of the claimant on para,8 admits amount of total contract to be £6,880.00 and the total amount he received was £4,366.60 which I agreed. Leaving £2,351.40 if the work was completed. The claim he filed against me should have been £2,351.40 but filed £2,886.66

 

He has brought a claim of £2,886.66 against me.

 

Can I ask the court to dismiss his claim on wrongful filing of the  application?

 

I once raised this at claimant's setting-aside application and in my W/S.

 

if so how do i make this effective?

But surely this was dealt with at the set aside application.

 

He sued you originally but his claim was chucked out.  He tried to have it reinstated at set aside but the judge refused.

 

That should be it.  His claim is dead.

 

Or has there been a new development?

I apologise for being sarcastic towards you before, but you really do not make it easy for people to help you.

 

Please, finally try to understand what is happening legally.

 

Initially there were two legal "fights" going on, the builder against you for around £2800 and your counterclaim towards the builder for around £16,500.

 

You won on both because the builder didn't comply with court directions.

 

Then at the set aside hearing the builder managed to reinstate the £16,500 counterclaim "fight" (see attached).

 

The builder's original around £2800 claim, is dead, buried, gone for ever.  There is no mention of it in the attachment.

 

If you are referring to -

 

8. Because extras were added the total of due was £6,880 of which I have only received
£4,366.60. I carried out all work save for the piling which I could not undertake.

 

then that is simply the builder describing the events from their point of view.

 

There is no claim for you for around £2800.  You won that part of the dispute.

Thanks, don't have full understanding of this legal jargons sometimes, the claim was £2866.66 not £2,800.00.

Regarding the expert position on this, how do i move forward? he increase claim by £300

whomever , you?, raised the part 20 counterclaim needs to close it, discontinue it, whatever - thats the problem that the court is working on.

dont forget that claimant/defendant labels switch if the main claim is resolved but a counterclaim exists.

the raiser of the counterclaim then becomes the claimant, hence the confusion?

I'm not 100% sure, as there have been huge delays in this case, none of which you've updated us on, and you haven't explained what is happening on Wednesday.

 

However, after finding the court order (attached) from six pages back, it seems the last step before the hearing is to produce a Scott Schedule which is defined here  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_schedule

Yes, i know, that's why I wrote around £2800.

Delay was from the expert and an attempt being  to postpone the hearing, but a word from the court yet.

This is all i got so far. Expert only moved £300.00

The builder's original claim against you is dead.  You won.  If his solicitor brings up the matter of his claim you just tell the judge that has already been the subject of litigation and the builder lost.

 

As for your counterclaim, take all the evidence you have to back up the £16,500 (more or less) figure and show it to the judge.
