Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Was this from a private seller or dealer?
Did the seller know of these problems? Did you ask if it had been written off etc?
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.
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/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
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.
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.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Sadly to issue a claim you MUST have a physical address. That is the only way to do this. If you do not have his address then sadly you cant issue one.
Does that clarify?
You just write, say you have had a second opinion, it was dangerous and that you have been misled.
if you paid the company, that is fine. It if you paid an individual you can only sue them.
Does that clairfy?
then you need to find him. You may need to hire a private investigator to trace him. Does that clairfy?

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 at the bottom of the screen, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
