Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know how you paid for the Nissan, was it on credit at all?
£8,000 cash, balance on finance over 4 years. ( HP)
Do you have a replacement vehicle?
Can you drive the current vehicle?
No to both questions
Ok - then they should provide a replacement.
Under the Sale of Goods Act (which also applies to a business) goods must be fit for purpose, of suitable quality and as described.
As you can't actually use the vehicle they should replace it. If they do not then you can sue for breach of contract.
Indeed sadly if you were an individual then the finance would also be liable under the Consumer Credit Act section 75
Do you mean a temporary replacement or a new replacement vehicle ?
However I suspect your current finance agreement excludes the CCA because you are in business and as an exempted agreement
They should replace the vehcile
Many thanks, ***** ***** write to the supplying dealer accordingly quoting Sale of Goods Act. Is there any particular section of the act I should refer to ?
Does that help?
