Do dealers have to disclose this? We had no idea until we received our v5 document through the post this morning! Just wondering if there is a rule against this as these cars are often worth less?

No they don't have to declare it.



Ex lease cars are often a very good buy - they will have been serviced on time and at a main dealer, etc.



Before I retired I dealt with lots of lease companies, and they were better cars than others offered within the trade.

Thank you for your reply. I did a quick google search and I saw back in 2009 trading standards said that anything that may affect the value of a car should be made obvious by the dealer? And as an ex hire car saying it has been previous owner is surely a little misleading considering it could have been driven by 5,000 people? Many people I know are happy to buy ex hire cars, but aren't these usually cheaper which helps?

I couldn't find whether it was actually against any rule to not make it obvious as it seemed a bit of a grey area. Consumers saying they should have been made aware and dealers disagreeing by the looks of it.

Doesn't matter how many people its been driven by if its been well maintained.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

OP you said ex lease.



you are now saying ex hire.



there is a difference.



ex lease = a company leased it and its had one driver from new, probably 2-3 years old



ex hire = Alamo or someone rented it probably less than 15000 miles and 18 months old or less



Either is ok, Alamo, etc have to give them back in pristine condition
