Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to clarify you purchased this from a private seller, rather than dealer?
How much did you pay, how old is the car and how many miles has it done please?
Yes I wanted to check as you said it is currently with a garage. What is it you want to achieve?
Do you still have the ad? Was it on Ebay or in the paper?
What is the cost please?
OK - so you need to get the report (in hand) and quotes to get the work done, this forms your loss
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?
I would get a copy of the report and a number of quotes. You need the quotes to get the work done before you ask to refund that cost
Fees can be found here:
But if you win those costs are added to the claim
Yes I would do this. Then you can disclose the report and costs of putting right.
Of course you need to get a number of quotes and seek the cheapest
I think there is, as it was not marked sold as seen and the advert describes as fantastic condition
Yes, once you rate the format changes and you can come back to it at any time
Hi, I called the seller and he did not wish to discuss further, stating 'sold as seen'. I then emailed the seller explaining my position. I have received his response and am now completing the moneyclaim form online
In the response the seller claimed that I wore out the tyres in the 480 miles use I had put on them since purchase. Following this he sent a follow up email claiming that I am trying to extort money from him due to his lifestyle (he has a nice house and several cars). He says due to his fears he is passing the information onto a solicitor and police officer.
I am worried about the next steps. Do I need to obtain further supporting evidence for my claim and should I also speak to my local police?
