    • 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

I joined last week and have visited a few times reading lots of useful info. Just a couple of queries before I go any further:-

  1. I see that you are advised to open a new account before you start proceedings. Should this be with another bank/building society or just a new account at your present bank?
  2. My son's account has been solvent for the last couple of years but his problems were years before that. Could he ask for statements under the Data Protection Act for 1999-2004 or do they only keep records from the present date back 6 years?

Hi Chris

 

You can go back 6 years. You need to send an S.A.R. (Subject Access Request) asking for the statements. This will cost £10 in total. You may get them for free if you call them.

 

If you are worried about the account being closed or having an overdraft facility removed, then a parachute account with another bank is advisable, just in case.

 

Good luck

Thanks, but still puzzled. You will have to forgive me, I need to have things spelled out clearly. I caught a virus whilst trekking in China last year and am still having trouble with getting info to my brain!

 

Can the claim be for any 6 years or only 6 years back from 2007?

 

I don't want to do things wrong on this site as I see there are some messages about posting in the wrong places. Should I be on the Nationwide forum, if so how do I do that?

 

Thanks for your patience.

The limitation act goes back 6 years.

However people on the site have started to challenge this,for earlier periods.

Its up to you.

Have a look in the Nationwide threads to see whats going on there.

As for pre 6 years....our co- Founder Dave started an interesting thread.....have you got bank charges going back longer than 6 years .......a very interesting read too.

Chris....Have moved your posts into the Nationwide group.......you should get some good advice here as well as looking at the other claimants progress.

Your Son owes you a drink........or maybe a few ha ha ;)

Thanks very much for your help. I don't know about a drink - I was thinking more a % of the spoils! If it all works out there will be some for this sight as well. You are doing a grand job.

Regards

Hi

I have now received the statements for my son's account going back to 2001 and I am putting together the spreadsheet for the charges.

 

What I don't understand is, surely he should have been charged something for his returned cheques etc so where is this calculated in the great scheme of things? I believe there was a mention of a fair charge of £4 or some such figure.

 

Can someone help please?
