Customer Question
Hi We looked at...

Hi We looked at a new caravan with the view to purchase and trade in our used van . They rang us later that afternoon with a change over figure payable . Over the phone we paid a sizeable deposit on credit card. The next day they emailed the contract for signing ,we signed and emailed back . Our trade in was not sighted by the dealer but a description was outlined in the appraisal .

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?

Sorry , haven't completed my query . on the contract they have a total vehicle sale price and then a few items as no charge , less deposit , less trade in price = Total payable . my long winded query is. we are not happy with the trade in price given as we believe it is under valued by them by $5000 - $7000. In terms and conditions clause 4.3 it states dealer can re value trade in price when delivered to dealership ,(it implies reducing trade in price DOES IT ALSO MEAN THE TRADE IN ALLOWANCE CAN BE INCREASED and contract altered to reduce amount payable . Can we dispute their trade in allowance and if necessary take the trade out of the contract if we so choose. We have also seen this new van on the web from the factory at approx. $5000 cheaper (which also adds to our worry . I can not see in the terms and condition any mention of cooling off period We are in Qld we saw the van on the 21/12/17 signed contract via signing and emailing back on the 22/12 . There has been a weekend and2 public holidays to totally review this contract. What are our options if any Thanks *****: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
