The BIS takes the view that if you order a car online you can specify standard factory options, test drive it and, within seven working days from the day after you take delivery, cancel (in writing) under the Distance Selling Regulations and receive a full refund. You should get your money back within 30 days.
However, the Distance Selling Regulations aren’t a guarantee of an easy time of it, and a dealer may be less than happy to take the car back. Ultimately if a dispute can’t be resolved you may need to resort to court action.
You should to write and set out your losses and ask for a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy. If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can be done online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by competing form N1 at: https://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
The Court will then issue the claim which will be sent to the Defendant and they will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce it. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a hearing. If the losses are £10,000 or less then it will be a small claim and you do not need representation. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
