The Car Lawyer

The Car Lawyer Knows the Motor Trade,

the Cars, the problems, the Rules and the

Tricks of the Motor Trade Inside Out

The Car Lawyer

The car lawyer is the nickname of Philip Harmer best known as a motor industry expert, specialising in car repair, motor vehicle restoration and car sales disputes involving Consumer rights act, breach of contract, misselling and fraud.

Contrary to popular belief he is not a loophole lawyer paid to get dodgy car dealers off the hook but has built a hugely successful business in not only defending car dealers and motor traders but also advising private clients with claims against car finance companies  automotive businesses. However, his no conflict of interest policy prevents him from advising against existing clients.

His unique expertise, experience and insight into the tricks of the motor trade has led to him becoming in high demand by car dealers, dealerships and private clients throughout the UK and internationally.

Technical Knowledge

There are motor industry legal services firms,  solicitors who will deal with faulty car claims and car sales complaints and  motor trade solicitors but no one has the product and technical knowledge or knows the motor industry better that the car lawyer.

His insight has enabled him to use these technicalities to identify whats wrong with the used car and apply the law to ascertain whether you may have a legal right to a repair, the cost of a repair, or some or all of your money back

Renowned for his straight talking, down to earth approach, his  second hand car legal advice and knowledge on the legal rights when a car has been written off and not declared, buying a car with outstanding finance on it because the car dealer has not settled the HP and complaints involving car finance, is second to none.

Clocking

It is an offence under consumer law for a trader to give false, misleading or deceptive information about the history of a car, including false information about a clocked car, ie changing the genuine odometer reading of the car in order to make the car seem like it has been driven less than it actually has.

Write Off

Selling insurance ‘write-offs’ isn't illegal and they can be legitimately allowed back on the road, but failing to disclose the car has been crashed is against the rules and maybe against the law if they are beyond repair or structurally compromised and dangerous
