Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Did you ask if the car had any defects or ask to see the MoT please?
I asked if the car had any accidents etc he assured me no as they sold it from new did the servicing history and the original owner had part changed it for a new corsa and said they would do an mot for me as the car is just 3 years old at the end of this month
Alex Watts : The car has had no accidents is that correct? Did you have someone else examine the car for you?
I independantly have had it checked with autotrader and it came back clear
Alex Watts : So you had an opportunity to have it examined before you purchased it and the garage didn't lie to you?
no i checked it afterwards because i did not beleive them
Alex Watts : And it's correct, is that right?
the car has not been involved in any accident
Alex Watts : Ok. It's a hard one. If you could have had it inspected and you didn't or ask for the MoT then they could argue it's your own fault.
Alex Watts : but I will outline how to bring a claim
Alex Watts : 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.
Alex Watts : 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.
Alex Watts : 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.
Alex Watts : If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your time and trouble much appreciated
