Grabbing Brakes

Has anyone had this experience?
I have great little car The Grand Modus performs very well except for one thing.
When left for even 20 minutes the brakes will grab when applied.
Even at 1 MPH it grabs, car stops ok but passengers are thrown forward.
After driving short distance when brakes are applied all is well which leads me to think the pads are getting damp. If braking while driving short distance they seem to dry out and work ok.
I haver asked garage to check and they deny any fault- it is still under g'tee,
Terst drive with engineer failed to make fault appear but of course brakes had probably dried out
At a loss to know how to get some action
Any advice
