tdlawyer :

Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** can assist you with this.

tdlawyer :

Was the horse advertised as being free from vice?

tdlawyer :

Or described to you in that way?

Customer:

yes

Customer:

hello are you there

tdlawyer :

Yes, I'm here.

tdlawyer :

Okay. If the horse was wrongfully described to you, in the sense of it being free from vice, wehen it was clearly not, then you would have been mis-sold the horse.

tdlawyer :

As such, you are likely to have a claim based on the law of misrepresentation. This means that you can end the contract and insist upon your money back. Obviously, you have to return the horse too.

tdlawyer :

This is on the assumption that you would not have purchased the horse had its true description been given to you.

tdlawyer :

Firstly, you should try and get the money back by consent, and I know you've already made efforts at doing that. If that fails, then you could issue a small claim assuming the overall amount sought is less than £10,000.

tdlawyer :

You do that by issuing proceedings online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk

tdlawyer :
