Buying a car
Buying a used car is for most people is a big deal and a long term financial commitment whether they pay for it with their savings or with HP or motor finance agreement. Although the majority of cars are sold by traders and car franchise dealers providing the legal protection of laws which sets standards every car sold by a dealer should meet, car sales law is complex and often misunderstood; if in doubt phone an expert
However, car sales and servicing complaints remain the number one source of calls for help to citizens advice and trading standards.
At it’s centre, is the problem between having legal rights whether it be the right to reject, refund or replace and being able to enforce them. Simply it takes a moment to spend your money but months to get it back
People who have bought a car from a private seller, either from the roadside, off Ebay or Autotrader don’t get the same protection under the sale of goods act,consumer rights act or car sales law as they would from a trader. However, the law does give recourse to those who have purchased a car only to find out the seller didn’t have legal title.
