Sorry this isn't my area.
Thanks for requesting me but it isn't my area.
I'll opt out for others.
Hello Paul my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you want to achieve?
The answer is no. Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 the garage has to act with all reasonable skill and care. If they did not then that is not your fault.
In addition they should have carried out any necessary checks to satisfy themselves.
If they did then whoever did the checks is liable. If they did not its their own fault.
Unless you KNEW (and its not suggested you did) and did not tell them, then and only then would you be liable.
Save for that then you are not. They are a business and should carry out checks.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Consumer Rights Act - Chapter 4 Section 49.
Does that clarify?
All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
