Buying a Used Electric Car From a Private Seller

You have very few legal rights if you have bought the vehicle from a private seller rather than a dealer.

The vehicle doesn't have to be of satisfactory quality. However, if the seller offers a description of the vehicle, it must match the description given. It must also be roadworthy and the seller must have 'good title' to the vehicle...ie their name and address on the V5 registration Document . This means that they must be the legal owner in order to sell it to you.

If the vehicle doesn't match the description given, you may be entitled to compensation. You may also be entitled to compensation if you have bought an unroadworthy car from a private seller, which has caused injury to someone. However, it may be especially difficult to get compensation from a private seller.

You will only be able to claim against a private seller for one of the following reasons:
- the vehicle doesn't match the description they gave you
- the seller broke a specific contract term
- the seller was actually a dealer posing as a private seller
- the seller did not have good title to the vehicle
- the vehicle is unroadworthy.

what people are saying

27/03/19 Thinking of switching to an EV? Let Eco-Cars find the right one for you! Having bought my first electric car, a 24kWh Nissan Leaf, from Jonathan three years ago, I already new about the personal service and competitively priced deals offered by Eco-Cars. So, when my sister-in-law expressed an interest in having one, albeit on a very limited budget, I kept an eye out on their website and social media for several months until an early LEAF appeared there at a bargain price. Unfortunately we weren't able to view it straight away so, despite having other offers coming in, Jonathan kindly held the car for us for a WEEK until we could get to see it. She'd never driven an EV before and James was first class at getting her behind the wheel and teaching her the basics. She was driving with confidence within minutes and loved it! James is delivering it this Friday. It was the fact that we were given time and space to think and deliberate, with no pushy sales talk and cups of tea whilst further questions were asked, which swayed us in favor. Great service again!
