Re: Legal standing on buying privately

Hi Jonboy28

The only legal terms that cover a private sale contract are

the seller must have the right to sell the car the vehicle should match the description given by the seller
the car must be roadworthy it is a criminal offence to sell an un-roadworthy car and an MOT certificate from a test several months ago is no guarantee that the car is roadworthy today.
from what I can see that's about it
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
