This answer was rated:

I purchased a horse lorry from a reputable coach builder, they told me it needed some tlc & I paid £9995. It is under market value, but when my coach builder has had a thorough investigation of lorry, it is nearly a write off! It should of been scrapped it needs a major over haul to repair at a cost of £15-20,000 not the £5000 a bit of tlc would cost! Where do I stand?
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Seahouses, Northumberland, England
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have emailed seller last night as only delivered yesterday & was late afternoon my lorry guy went over it all to see what needed to be done
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I don’t think so. I have the advert it was purchased from


I am a solicitor.

When did you purchase the lorry?

I paid for it last week & it was delivered to my coach builder yesterday

Sorry, I am unable to call but a colleague will call if possible.

You may reject the lorry and ask for a full refund. You are allowed to do so under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 within 30 days of buying it.

May I help further?
