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

03/07/20 Delighted both with Jonathan’s service and our new car, thank you Jonathan was extremely helpful and knowledgeable from the moment we contacted him and throughout our time dealing with him. He helped us to pinpoint exactly which car would be best for us and then immediately found us two good options. He successfully bought our preferred Nissan Leaf and it was delivered only three days after we first spoke to him on the phone. Amazing service! Jonathan was outstanding throughout, keeping us informed as to what was happening and when and what cost what. Jonathan was highly recommended to us and I have already recommended him to two others (and the car only arrived this afternoon, it’s fab). Thank you for all your help
Elspeth, Edinburgh
