I hope someone out there can give me some advice.......

 

I recently sold my car privately and the buyer has called me to say he has found some faults with the car that may cost him upto £600.00 to repair!!

I had no idea that anything was wrong with the car and it recently passed am MOT (which the buyer requested i had doen before he bought), i advertised the car generally by saying it was a 1.4 polo, 4 previous owners, tax, MOT, 50,000 miles etc......i gave no indication as to the quality of the car. When he inspected the car he asked if i had trouble with it, i told him that i had a new clutch in it about a year ago but other than that i thought that it drove well, I gave him the receipts of the work i had done on the car whilst i owned it.

 

he is now demanding that i pay him £300.00 or he will take legal action where do i stand????

It is clearly a [problem] - not unheard of, but almost definitely a [problem].

 

Private Sale = No Come Back - tell them to get stuffed and do not be intimated by them. You will know doubt get a couple of calls and even possibly a letter from a 'solicitors firm' - but I'd safely ignore it and tell them to get stuffed period.

In a case like this it's 'buyer beware' (Caveat emptor) see; Caveat emptor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Even tho' the above link explains it from a US perspective it still applies here. In normal circumstances with a sale like this it is wise to add the words 'sold as seen' on a receipt.

This is the "you sold me a faulty car" [problem]. Don't worry, he/she cannot do anything. Just a guide always give a reciept with "sold as seen". Its up to them to check the car out, they can call the AA or RAC to have a check.

 

Tell them to take a jump.

cars sold privately and not by dealers, the law will see it as sold as seen. the buyer should know this. dealer have to give three months warranty. there is nothing that he can do, i mean court will take no notice of his claim. till you display the the car has warranty then it will be seen sold as seen. let him go to court then he will learn the lessen the hardway

Privately sold, so sold as seen. It's up to the buyer to get the car checked out. Sold a car some years ago to a so called dealer, we rec'd a call from him screaming the odds there was something wrong with the car, which we honestly knew nothing about. Told him wasn't aware of any problem with the car and it was sold in good faith. Never heard from him again, even thou' he threatened legal action.
