we were told originally mid December, on the paperwork the estimated delivery date says 30/11/2014
the hire purchase agreement states the registration date as 28/11/2014, but it now appears the car wasn't even in the UK when it was registered.
No only the garage, however the garage told us the payment wouldn't be taken until the middle of January. To be fair to the finance company, I don't believe they realise we haven't received the car, albeit they are Ford Credit. I'm starting to get the feeling that the garage has fudged the dates so they can include the sale in their end of year figures, but have now been caught out by the vehicle not arriving. It is for this reason I would like to know where we stand legally.
No Alex, you have given me the answer I was expecting, thank you for clarifying the situation. Hopefully we can now get this sorted thank you.
