    • 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.

DVLA NO Road tax - Marstons bailiff at my door threatening to drill the locks


Recommended Posts

I have Marstons at my door threatening to drill my locks if i do not pay him £620,

i have tried to tell him that there has been a court error and i can prove this, and he will not listen, 

is there anyway that i can have this set aside to deal with as i can prove my case.

And can they come and drill my locks for this please as he seemed pretty certain.

I have tried adding pictures but it wont let me as it wont accept jpeg.

It just says HMCTS magistrates warrant.

ive just found out it was for no road license, but this is the first time that i have had any paperwork (and can prove this, the bailiff was not interested)

its a 40 minute wait to make a statutory declaration, and he says my locks will be drilled at 12:00 if not received.

Id make your stat decleration now if its 40m and hes drilling them at 12.

Yes baliffs for magistrates warrants can force entry with a locksmith.

Are you sure you’ve received no prior paperwork?

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

Are you sure about that?

What would this "magistrates warrant" be for?

Bear in mind that magistrates do not issue "warrants of control" and in any case a warrant of control does not authorise forcible entry. .

Unpaid fines imposed for criminal matters are often passed to bailiffs to attempt enforcement, but they do not have right of forced entry.

The ultimate sanction for unpaid fines imposed in the magistrates' court is a custodial sentence in lieu of the fine.
