Car bought from auction has finance on it

Recommended Posts

Hi

I bought a car from an auction site. Find out it has finance on it. Called up and they said i should have checked myself. Can they sell cars on finance? First purchase and this happens.

Can i pursue this legally?

Any advice appreciated.

What auction house, come to think of it doesnt sound right to me you pay an indemnity for just this reason.

This. 

Any credible auction wouldn’t operate this way.

do you mean ebay and you said you were trade?

if yes then you as a business should have checked so you would need to go to small claims court

if it was an auction offering an article in the course of a selling transaction then unles it stipulates that your contract is between the vendor and yourself then they would be liable to make good the lien

i am not a solicitor mind

If you bought a vehicle advertised on eBay then you need to take issue with the seller, eBay don’t sell cars. 

Mid you bought through a Motor Auction, ie BCA or Manheim then they will accept the car back. 

If you have been stupid enough to purchase a car without doing the basic checks then you only have yourself to blame.

Hang on... have I read this correctly... 

A vehicle was purchased through eBay by a ‘trader’ and not hpi’d first? Rule number 1 springs to mind...

Hi guys 

Thanks for the replys. Got the matter sorted now. The guy who said i should done my own checks on the car is new and got it wrong. Spoken with the manager, finance has been cleared or will be cleared next week. 

Now i can enjoy the weekend.
