  1. Hi, I am posting this as I require some urgent advice regarding a minor and an agreement. I am 17 years old and I got onto an online car auction and won. The vehicle is for £7,900 + VAT + 20% commission + vat, therefore the total plaice is around £11,300. However I don’t have the money to buy the car and I did not think that I will win the auction. I contacted the auctioneer about this and they said that in there terms and condition (which I agreed to over email) they clearly state the following: 1) if a buyer wants to cancel they must pay the 20% commission+ vat. Which works out at £1580+ Vat
  2. Hi All, Not sure if this is the correct forum, I have a somewhat difficult situation I am contending with. in summary; I had a lease vehicle; prior to the end of the lease arrangement I arranged the inspection (Thurs 15th March 2018) and collection (Sat 17th March) with British Car Auctions (BCA) in accordance with what I had to do (inspection within 7 days of collection and end of contract). BCA failed to turn up (i took the day off off work!)! I called BCA who advised that they had made a mistake and schedule my inspection and collection for the incorrect dates. They advised m
  3. Just bought my first car in the UK from a large auto auction and was curious about the V5C document. Do I really need the signature of the registered keeper (previous owner) if purchased through an auction where I have no contact with the previous owner at all? :???:
  4. Helping someone . I bought my house in a auction and knew the house was suffering from some sort of damp problem. I never had a survey done as there was no mortgage and there was a damp problem. I have managed to sort that out and will be having a damp course done in a few weeks time. However now some 16 months on cracks have started to appear on inside walls. These are vertical ones and are very thin. I have checked the wall above and because it has wall paper on cannot check if the cracks have gone up. I did however contact my insurance company wh
  5. Hi Folks, Long story short but I missed 3 payments on my car (I lost my job) the agreement with the finance company was terminated and they wanted the balance in full (I couldn't afford to pay it in full). The car was repossessed (I agreed to this and met them to take it away). The car went to auction and sold for more than £10k than what the outstanding debt/balance was. How do i stand with this? The company are saying that they are entitled to keep all the money even though they have been overpaid by over £10k on the figures they sent me via their solicitor and the c
  6. Hi there I'm new to this forum so please be gentle! I won an item at the end of auction and when i went to pay for the item it would not let me then when i rechecked it someone else had bid on the item after the auction had ended and got the item i had already won i contacted ebay and they say it is a glitch in there system and they will get back to me but have not got back to me yet i sent them copies of my message showing i clearly had won the item normally if im not going to win an item i get the option to bid higher which i would have done but because i had won t
  7. Does anyone happen to know whether the vendor can introduce restrictive covenants after a house has been purchased at auction and contracts exchanged without negotiation with the purchaser? thanks
  8. My partner recently purchased a car at auction which was advertised in the catalogue as having full service history. After picking up the car the auction told him they are still waiting for the previous owner to drop off the service history. I was shocked that the auction sold the car as having full service history without having any proof from the owner and just going on his word. The auction have been in contact with the previous owner who has said he'll drop it off but failed too, and now wont return any calls from the auction. The auction claim they haven't pa
  9. Hi sorry am new to this so am not sure if i have posted to the right location. I bought a car at auction for £4815 and on the way home it broke down, so i got it recovered at a cost of £125 to a garage who had the car for 2 weeks who couldnt find the problem with it but charged me £200 inspection fee's for the 2 weeks, so my total cost was around £5125. I decided not to sell the car privatley but to sell it threw auction under the (Sold as seen) section which i did and received £3985 for it so i was roughly £1200 out of pocket, to my horror about 10 days after selling the car i rece
  10. Hi, I hope that someone out there might have some helpful information for me. In the late 2000's I managed to get myself into a considerable amount of debt and ended up having my house repossessed. As some of you will identify with this was an extremely stressful time and put a large strain on my marriage. My house was repossessed in 2009 and was , I believe sold at auction. I have never been able to establish how much it sold for. In no small part because we 'upped sticks' and left and I never informed Natwest who I had my mortgage with of my new address (frightened, worried , head in the s
  11. Hello, I'll keep this brief because I know sometimes people can give a little to much information on these forums... I bought a piece of antique Ivory from a auction via the-saleroom.com a fair while ago in April. I was overall happy with it and I treasured it in my cabinet until recently. I decide I would like to part with this item and I took this to a dealer in my local area who trades in ivory and I was shocked to learn that she very confidently believes this not to be ivory but instead some sort of resin and so of significantly less value. I strongly feel I ha
  12. Yesterday I bid for a carpet on an Ebay auction starting at 99p and won at £41. There was no reserve price, or Buy-it-now. After trying to obtain details for collection the seller emailed me "Item sold wrong price apologise for inconvenience, Thanks". I now find this same carpet has been relisted today, again starting at 99p with 4 bids so far (up to £10.90)and 9 days to go. The same seller has also relisted a television that was sold a few minutes after the carpet, in the same circumstances, and feedback was left yesterday to say "seller refuses to sell at the auc
  13. I purchased a motorcycle via ebay auction The auction described "Excellent Condition" & "Custom Paint". Contrary to this, 1. Vehicle broke down within 100 miles. Upon inspection by mechanical engineer it was found: Charging system not working, rectifier and/or stator defective (components that that charge the bikes battery system and electrics). Likely both are unusable. He informed me the new battery seller put on would have masked this problem for approx. 100 mile use. I suggest this shows priorer knowledge of the fault. 2. Faring cracked by right wing mirror 3. Fau
  14. Hello, For now I'd rather not mention the name of this site, I just want to ask what is your opinion on this story? I bought the following products from this site, here's the product description: "A Bowens Illumtran Flash Slide Copier, with Nixon film camera, this item is used and untested" Product image has a resolution of 199x132, so you can only barely get an idea about the condition of this product. You can view picture here: www dot gthdirect dot com/flashcopier/DSC_0020.JPG Here is their disclaimer: "These goods being auctioned are second hand, unless stated otherwise

  16. Hello, i have tried to explain this the best i can but sorry if it gets a bit confusing! I took out a HP with ford finance on my ford fiesta. I got into some difficulty with the payments and i had phoned them to explain. I said that i was selling the car to ford busseys(Local ford dealership) and was just waiting until i could afford the excess money to cover the whole cost. Ford busseys offered me a price of £10,500 for my car... Ford Finance phoned me up and told me that they had passed my debt onto Link Financial and they were now dealing with it. Next thing i know when i was at w
  17. I am trying to resolve and end a long term problem with The Black Horse. Can anyone answer me this question. If a vehicle is repossessed and sold at auction, could I expect to have any sort of receipt or official document to tell me on the amount it was sold for etc? I received nothing but mention in a letter and later an amount on a statement. Is this right? thanks[/size]
  18. Hi Due to extreme laziiness and mislaid letters I have managed to have my car seized from my drive for non-payment of a parking ticket. I was away at the time and only discovered 5 days later. Basically the debt is approx £550 (plus whatever gets added on by the car storage co.) and baliffs have threatened to auction my car. They do not have my keys or V5. My car looks more valuable than it is to a baliff, but I would assume at a car auction it may not raise that much. They even suggested on the phone that if I gave them the keys and V5 it would help raise the value. Anywa
