Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does the order form show a trade in price of £29,000 please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Then yes, subject to you not having any accidents or anything then they must honour the trade in price. This is because it is not your fault regarding the delay, it is theirs. So they can not go back on their word, their contract and change the trade in value.
It forms part of the order and therefore the contract.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
