who is responsible for bringing the car to me

i sale the car with 97thousent miles and inwose the clutch was change was on the 70 thousend miles when they do the test drive the clutch was fine I want want to pay them for the clutch replace but hi want me to pay £1500 but job is worth not even £300
does he want to give the car back to you and just get a refund?
and this was a private buyer?
can I charge them for any damage they done on the car .
When a consumer makes a purchase from a business seller, they will have certain 'statutory' rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002.
The law states that the goods must be of satisfactory quality, as described and fit for purpose. If they are not, they will have certain legal remedies against the seller.
If the goods are not as described, of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose, you have the following rights:
1. Reject the goods and request a refund - this is only possible if the rejection occurs within a 'reasonable time'. This period depends on the circumstances, although it is generally accepted to be within the first month after purchase, so must not be delayed.
2. Ask for a repair or replacement – if they are too late to reject the goods, they can ask the seller for a repair or replacement without causing any significant inconvenience.
So if they rejected the car within a couple of weeks after purchase they are within time to do so and they can ask you for a full refund. You could deduct any usage costs but for use of 2 weeks these will be minimal, especially if they have not driven much in it – you can only deduct costs for depreciation in value, for example if they had driven thousands extra miles and as a result lowered the car’s value further. However, if actual damage has been caused then you can offset these costs against any refund.
Finally, it is the buyer’s responsibility to get the car back to you if they want to reject it and get a refund.
he say he done about 1000 miles
then you have to estimate what the value of the car would be had it had !000 extra miles, but I presume it would not change that much
how much i can charge him for that?
well you are the car trader, you need to estimate what the difference in value between a car like that with 97000 miles would be when compared to one with 98000
if he deicide to reperate the car can he tell me to pay a bigger amount then normal , he wanted £ 1500 for reperate but i check with my garagde the service cost is £ 300
he cannot just ask you to pay any amount, he has to justify it so if you do not believe the repairs were worth that much, you can ask him for evidence of that
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
you are welcome, all the best
