Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
You certainly dod the right thing not completing on the purchase of the car if the seller did not have the legal paperwork required to sell it. You could have been buying anything.
If they are now refusing to refund your money, you should send them a formal "letter before claim".
This letter sets out you claim against them what it is for the amount and a date to repay you by, otherwise you will commence legal action against them.
Then if they do not pay, you can start a money claim against them at court.
You could also consider reporting the matter to the police just in case it was a scam to sell you a car not belonging to them. Call, the police on 101.
To help you, I have attached a template letter you can use, and also a link to the online money claim at court.
I hope this helps.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
