    Statement of Case all posted off. Another tick in the box thank you.

    So tonight, Inspection. Thanks for all the advice Des.

    My OH asked earlier, if he turns up with his mate again (very likely) we let them both on property for inspection? OH wants to say no to his mate but I have said no we can't be seen to be unreasonable. Am I right?

    I'd go along with you, Chelle, but if he /they become intimidatory have no hesitation in telling him/them to leave.
    If he/they do not, then call the police

    Been and gone. He brought a neutral person to look over the van.

    They pushed the van back, had no equipment. Took loads of photos.

    The damage, he looked at it and didn't even ask what happened. Too calm !
    So I said YOUR van got damaged day of storm doris. Reported to police. They immediately came as shocked there has been a crime as we live in such a safe place crime is unheard of. They asked me who'd i'd upset. Told him could be vandalism or storm it's unknown. I held out a piece of paper with date and crime no but he never took it so I put it back in my pocket.

    He wanted to see smoke but never brought any equipment so van did not get started. They pushed van back and said won't take up any more of your time and he'd be in touch.

    So what do you make of that?





    He said nothing, took lots of pictures.

    They engaged electrics and engine fan immediately kicked in and defendant commented that's the fan you were talking about. Looked under engine and he said yes there is an engine leak. Spoke quietly to his associate. They were here probably around 10 mins. Asked me to leave off the cover as it's rubbing the paintwork. So now uncovered and kids have even more strict instructions to go nowhere near it.

    And I looked around the van after they left, OMG so much rust and patchwork on side panels, rear spoiler corner had paint over the top (cover up), botched paint job in places around the van. First time I saw what a cover up he sold me ! NEVER BUY A VEHICLE IN THE RAIN BUYER BEWARE !

    I would expect an attempt to reduce the amount of the refund due by arguing the damage occurred whilst in your care and custody.
    You can prepare along the lines already discussed ie his vehicle from time of rejection. Damage occurred long time after that (it wasn't present when DEKRA inspection carried out) and you were only an involuntary bailleee, taking reasonable care.

    Did he not make arrangements to collect?

    Will keep this thread posted and thanks Des.

    Now I wait to hear what the offer is but I already know I am not prepared to take less because he has behaved so badly in this and I am not taking responsibility for the damage as yes it occured some 3 months after rejection.

    I told him that I have video footage of van parked at top of drive dated and it's intact!

    7 months on practically, court date around the corner, Judge said she wants to get this sorted so let's play it out if he cant offer properly.

    No no arrangements to collect, cool calm I'll be in touch. Just asked to keep cover off as it will damage paintwork. I told him police told me to cover after damage. He didn't respond.
