Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know the age of the car and also miles it had travelled?
Why did you not get the car inspected?
First registered in March 2005. Total miles 63000. Didn't think it was necessary.
Thank you. As you know its buyer beware from private sellers.
You could have had the vehicle inspected - you did not
Claims against private sellers are very hard because you have fewer rights.
I do not think you have a claim sadly, but I will give you the procedure in any event. If you lose then you only sacrifice the Court fees
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you. Was as expected.
Does this answer the question for you?
Yes. Thank you.
