Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Did you have the chance to see the full terms of the warranty and were you told it will be suitable?
Thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you as soon as I can. Please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you
Many thanks for your patience. I must say it may not be that easy to hold the seller liable for the sale of the warranty even if the car did not comply with the T&Cs at the point of sale. What the seller would have done is given you the option to extend to purchase this warranty. That does not mean that they promise you and ensure that the car is compliant with its requirements. In essence that is for you to find out and satisfy yourself because you are the one taking out the warranty under your name. They are not the ones who offer the warranty also – they only offer you the opportunity to buy the warranty from a third party, so they do not run the scheme and neither are they a signatory of the warranty and the contract which covers it. The seller is not actually legally obliged to know the terms of the warranty to ensure that the car will comply with them, which would have been for you to satisfy yourself with prior to agreeing to it.
Saying that there is nothing stopping you from exerting some pressure on them to try and hold them liable for the way the warranty was sold to you and for trying to get them to honour at least part of the extra money you had to spend as a result of their involvement. I would probably not go as far as court but I would certainly try every other trick in the book short of issuing a claim and you could end up with at least something.
