Private Car Sale Deposit Agreement
Buyers are often told that a down payment is refunded if they change their mind to change their mind later and be told they cannot get their deposit back. The financing contract is dissociated from the deposit paid to the merchant. You must follow the dealer until it is refunded. One of your previous posts said that you paid more than £3,000 in a down payment to the dealer – once you handed over your deposit, you bought the car. You can`t continue to haggle after you buy it. I`m not sure what advice you`re looking for, because you don`t want to cancel your purchase and there`s no way a dealer will deconstruct the vehicle after the purchase. Ask the dealer to keep the car to yourself until you return, but don`t deposit a cash deposit. Cash deposits are often non-refundable if you decide not to buy the car later. If the seller insists on a down payment, this may be a sign to buy elsewhere.
Good morning, Janine. You have no papers where the trader confirmed the amount of repairs, only an oral promise from a seller (which is worthless). The car dealership may try to be difficult, especially when they think they will lose two sales at the end of the month, but you should fight to get your deposits back or for the cars to be prepared at an appropriate level. When I got home, I texted the buyer and told him that I had gone to the merchant and that I had received a better offer and that I was going to rip up his deposit cheque. I went to a car dealership and put a $500 deposit on a car for which they said I intended to pay the rest and get the car just to find out the next day that the dealer had approved me for the loan, but it had not yet been approved by any bank. Do I have the right to get my deposit back and make purchases elsewhere? Help please, I placed a deposit on a car at a known dealer, but not able to go with the sale through as bad and have to wait for a dvla response to determine if I can drive or not. Did I contribute? Hello Stuart, I paid $1000 deposit for a Mini Countryman, I never went to the Mini (Park Lane) dealer, everything was done by phone/email. I signed two documents electronically: receivables – needs, financial exclusion and used vehicle order form. I only wonder if I would be able to recover the $1000, if not all, but at least a few of them.
Thank you very much. I went to a dealership and deposited a $2,000 deposit for a car. The salesman gave me a price of $13,000, and I felt it was the final price. That was not the case, because it was irrelevant. The total price after credit checks came to $19,000, which I immediately refused. (no paper has been signed) Thank you very much for this informative article. I wonder if you have any objection to answering a personal question about this: I deposited a $300 deposit on a car from a car dealership and the entire sale took place by phone and not on the spot. A few days after storage on the phone, I didn`t order. I didn`t sign some kind of order form, etc. As in your article above, I think I`m entitled to a refund of that money, but the seller told me that it had to bring in another car from a dealership, etc. and therefore the costs incurred, so I can`t have that deposit back.
I have never been aware of any of this. They even said they could keep this deposit if I wanted to buy a car of their own in the future. I tried to contact them again to ask for my refund, but now received no return message from them and I wonder a) if I am entitled to my bail and b) how to approach the situation?… That may be true, but you are still responsible for signing a contract and paying a down payment. You didn`t have any of those things to do, and you made it clear that you were not happy with their behaviour before you agreed to buy the vehicle.
