    • 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.

Sorry not sure where to post - mods feel free to move me!

Minor neighbourly despute at the moment about a fence that seperates me and my neighbour that's recently been torn to shreeds in all the wind.

When we moved in 2 years ago we ended up replacing the fence to the left of the garden (as you look out the back window), as it was 2 inches out (this was insisted by the neighbours that side before we bought the house)

Now when the fence blew down I went around to tell the neighbours on that side ( the right as you look out the back window) only to be told by them that the fence is ours?!?!

Either they're wrong and I may have a neighbourly problem on my hands.. great, ... or, I've replaced my other neighbours fence... oops.

I've checked my deeds and can't see anything about boundaries... anyone??

As a very rough rule of thumb, it's generally whosever side has the fence posts owns the fence. You could try asking the neighbour next door but one which fence he thinks is his as it (again) generally follows the same pattern along the road. If he says the one on the right, then the fence is yours. If he thinks the one on the left it's your neighbours

i know in my house my fence is to the right as you look out, years ago the neighbours to the left had a 4' fence and a big dog that frightened the kids, so i put up a 6' fence my side of theirs to stop it looking over & barking, just securing my property you understand

I won £5289 heres how

If it is on the boundary and the deeds are silent as to ownership, then normally it is a shared fence - end of.

 

Note that, from the Land Registry documentation, it is impossible to define the boundart with an accuracy of 2". The thicknes of the line on the plan is usally a scale up to 6" or more.

 

As has been said, the posts might give a clue, as it is normal to erect a fence 'to the boundary' and therefore the post would need to be inboard of this. Do not, however, be misled about the 'good' side of a fence - it is a myth that the 'good' side should face the neighbour

Absolutely, I wanted to look onto a nice fence anf not posts, so I have the 'nice' side, and my neighbour the posts. My garden is quite large and I have 5 neighbours on my boundary, but all have been reasonable, when the existing blew/fell down we agreed to split the cost and agree the sting line of the 'temporary' boundary until it was replaced.

from the deeds and I quote;

 

'to erect in a proper and workman like manner and to the satisfaction of the vendor'... blah blah about wall at front of house...'also a wall or fence not less than four feet high and not more than six feet high from the level of the ground on the eastern most side of the rear garden all divison walls and and division fences to be party walls and fences'.

 

Mmmm, I don't get it, the eastern boundary is the one in question, i think, I haven't got a compass and can't remember the pin thingy, but then it says about party walls and fences... does this mean it's jointly owned?

 

Also just found out I'm allowed to build a stable in my back garden and graze sheep in the back lane... wicked!

If you have the Deeds you may also have a plan outlining the boundaries. There will be an arrow on the plan pointing North. East is to the right of North.

 

Party Walls & Fences are shared between the parties either side of them.

PUTTING IT IN WRITING & KEEPING COPIES IS A MUST FOR SUCCESS

....and the sun always rises in the East if you haven't a compass or North isn't marked on your plans.

A 'click' on the scales is always appreciated if I have helped. Many Thanks!

ok my back garden faces north, north, east so I am presuming the fence is question is the eastern one.

Can I just clarify then... yes I am really thick, when the house was built we had to build the fence/wall but from thereon it is jointly owned and maintained with the connecting neighbour?

You are now the proud owner of 2 fences!! and no one is going to argue any different. If you like, go to both neighbours and get them to sign a piece of paper to that effect to avoid future hassle.

 

Fun Heh!! but that is how it works!!
