hello, can a car dealership withhold your deposit when there is a 30 day cooling off period?
Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
Can you please give me some more details?
Was it a new car or a used car?
What does the contract you signed say about the cooling off?
It is a brand new car and I do not hold all paperwork. I have been unable to obtain much information other than 2 copies of a contract for purchase and have been advised many times that I can pick them up at on day of settlement 21/06/2013, which was verbally advised but is not in contract of purchase I possess.
Thank you for the answer. good service.
In the contracts I hold it is 10% of purchase price and which contract is valid?
I know I sound like a broken record,
Where do I stand with the misrepresentation of the car yard? As they did advise 30 cooing off period and the initial car sought had different specifications than the one I have signed. I know it might be my stupidity, however is there not recourse for this?
Thank you for your time and I am sorry to. no not in the contracts I hold. However there was another I have signed and is with them.
"terms and conditions and covenants attached to this document for part of the agreement" is stated on what I have.
That is what is stated.
I have been told many things, and have been given no answers and now no replies to my calling.
I know I have at least an avenue.
Thank you so much for your time and have a good night, take care.
