hi, want to tAke the matter further and respond to company who clearly in my opinion
knew the car was badly damaged yet sold it on privately to deliberately decive.
Can you advise my case and if they continue to deny what chance i have making small claim?
compensation because they deliberately deceived, loss of use, parts bought, time cleaning interior took me 4 days, disress to me and my family.
Ok accept cannot claim compensation. When I collected the car the full service history was not with the car and I was informed it would be sent to me but it has not yet been received, I have received bills for repairs to car this year.

Good cheap car welcome to view'
this part is untrue 'all round in good order', there was no mention of the major damage to engine block.
I asked by message: if the car is has not been damaged or subject to an insurance write off!
seller replied by message:Car has not been damage and it is taxed and tested. Loads of paper work for this car.
It has later transpired despite the seller informing me he worked for the company and knew about the company, the seller text me after I complained to him and informed me he does not work for the company and bought the car off the company to sell on! but he had the whole of the cars registration document V5C so I had no reason to suspect otherwise.
the evidence I and the mechanic felt is the epoxy resin stuck to the engine block to seal the cracks next to the new oil sump that was replaced in March 2013 according to one of the invoices they gave me refers to 'sump badly dented' and a new sump fitted.
What other options do I have?
Does it help my case - this company is selling its vehicles off using this seller (sellers EBay account refers to at least 1 other vehicle he has sold on behalf of this company, I have copy of advert), the company did not in this case and others I suspect legally comply with the law in that they failing to notify DVLA of transfer ownership, I only purchased the car because it was company owned and maintained and had it been advertised by private seller or motor dealer I would not have touched it? so are they a willing party to deceive?
