It depends on the contractual conditions. We help people assert or defend claims regarding the purchase or sale of cars or other vehicles in the event of a problem. Vehicles that are not covered by a warranty must be flagged as unjustified or offered for sale. If you buy a used car in a private sale, be aware that you may not have the same protection for people who buy from a used car dealership. If you bought a used car in a private sale and something goes wrong in the car, seek legal advice. You must give the buyer a signed declaration abandoning him through the previous owner of the vehicle. You can include this information in the sales contract. Before you put your car up for sale, get a safety certificate. RACQ inspectors can help. .
