  2. Hi Mrs P, There are three routes to qualifying as a solicitor: 1.Traditional law degree route 2.Non law graduate route 3.ILEX route Law degree route requires a law degree followed by a one year course(two years part-time) the Legal Practice Course and then a two year training contract.

  4. Sale of Goods Act applies to both consumer and business to business although in some instances the protection to B2b is lower. Further info here: Sale of Goods Act 1979 and Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982
  5. You may have grounds for setting the mortgage aside on the grounds of undue influence if the bank did not take reasonable steps to ensure that you freely entered the transaction. See here for further info: Undue influence
  6. See the case of Truk (UK) Limited v Tokmakidis GmbH sorry I've got no direct link to the case but you can read up on it here para 3.38: http://www.lawcom.gov.uk/docs/cp188.pdf

This does not confer any rights on consumers to insist on purchasing goods at the advertised price, but a threat to report them to Trading Standards can be a great bargaining tool!
  11. It looks like he is trying to introduce new terms into the contract after it has been concluded which is not allowed. See here: Unfair terms - common law
  12. As it is a sale in the course of a business s.14 of the Sale of Goods Act applies and the car must be of satisfactory quality. The car must also be as described under s13 although the fact that you saw the car before buying it may stop you being able to rely on s.13. There is also a misrepresentation relating to the model of the car which may give you a right of action at common law for negligent misrep. They have also committed an offence under the Trade Descriptions Act. Whilst this does not give the consumer a remedy a threat to report them to trading standards can give you leverage in ge
