Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
I presume the email contained no conditions you had to meet for the sale to go through?
What does he think you had agreed in relation to the bike rack?
Ok great, thanks. The email can certainly be considered a binding document if it is clear that you had both agreed on something. In fact nothing is required in writing, as long as there was an offer by one of you and an acceptance of that offer by the other person. Therefore, it is indeed most likely that you can hold him to that agreement.
In terms of the mileage, strictly speaking the offer would have been based on the condition of the car as it was when you sent him the details of it. There is no requirement for him to have told you that you cannot incur any more miles for that to be effective - it is really an implied expectation. So he can potentially knock of some money for the deprecation of the car’s value as a result of this excess mileage. But it won’t be that much - 1800 miles is not a huge amount and it should only be reduced considering market values, so that will not make a massive difference.
So in the end he can slightly reduce the value of your car, and you can demand the bike rack.
