  • HPI Clerical Error

    Hi, I've tried a quick search but haven't found an answer so have started a new thread. Apologies if this has been covered before.

    I purchased a car from a main dealership, which after 13mts developed an irreparable fault. I needed to get rid of the car and was offered part exchange by a different dealership, however, when they did a vehicle check it turned out there was an outstanding loan agreement on it. The dealership I bought the car from then contacted the bank and the marker was removed; allegedly the marker was a clerical error. Crucially, the marker was put on the vehicle after the dealership had bought the car. It was in their possession when the mistake occurred. The dealer has excused himself saying 'these things happen all the time' but in my view this demonstrates negligence in carrying out due diligence before selling the car to me. I purchased through a dealership so that i didn't encounter this kind of problem. He's denying all responsibility and says I don't have a complaint. Does anyone have a legal view on this?

    Many thanks,

    I am at a bit of a loss about what you are trying to achieve. Unless I have misunderstood your post, an incorrect marker was put on the vehicle which has now been removed.
