Buying a Used Electric Car From a Private Seller

You have very few legal rights if you have bought the vehicle from a private seller rather than a dealer.

The vehicle doesn't have to be of satisfactory quality. However, if the seller offers a description of the vehicle, it must match the description given. It must also be roadworthy and the seller must have 'good title' to the vehicle...ie their name and address on the V5 registration Document . This means that they must be the legal owner in order to sell it to you.

If the vehicle doesn't match the description given, you may be entitled to compensation. You may also be entitled to compensation if you have bought an unroadworthy car from a private seller, which has caused injury to someone. However, it may be especially difficult to get compensation from a private seller.

You will only be able to claim against a private seller for one of the following reasons:
- the vehicle doesn't match the description they gave you
- the seller broke a specific contract term
- the seller was actually a dealer posing as a private seller
- the seller did not have good title to the vehicle
- the vehicle is unroadworthy.

what people are saying

10/07/17 My first EV many many thanks to Jonathan and team I was another one of those customers who had lots & lots of questions to try to make my choice of FIRST EV .. they helped and answered all my questions, gave me lots of advice on all the situations and then once i had made my choice of car the choices were huge... and again lots of great advice on which model to look at, and best deal on each of them so after a short hunt , Jonathan found me a great deal on a fully loaded BMW i3 and then the service did not stop there ... James delivered my car to my home and gave a great run down , and instruction on being an EV owner and then James took me on a short test run out to show how most thing worked and to make sure i was comfortable with my new car a great experience and really well looked after from start to finish
