Yes I feel that if I had not been lied to I would not have travelled and lost any money. The business fails to s ee that I acted on the specific information I requested and received from them.
on the matter of consequential losses the bulk of my out of pocket expenes were incurred on the return journey which was not planned for as I accepted his representations as beng true. We travelled by coach to collect the car but were forced to travel by train to return home. The insurances that were paid for would not have been required had he told the truth. Does that change anything?
Is it not the case, that if a contract exsisted, that my claim would be for actual breach of contract.
It is my understanding (quoted from online resources) that:-
"A breach of contract occurs where a party to a contract fails to perform, precisely and exactly, his obligations under the contract. This can take various forms for example, the failure to supply goods or performa service as agreed."
Sorry to be a pain but I'm confused. In your fist reply you say no claim, in your second you say there is and your third says there is not. Can you please clarify for me.
