month warranty



:dunno: I thought that all second hand car dealers had to give a 3 months parts warranty unless it was sold as trade to trade or for spares/repair ? some sort of legislation back in 2000 and summat.


I don't think it applies to vans - that would be too sensible for any government to come up with.

I think that it's vehicles bought for business use it doesn't apply to.
I'm not sure about it, but I know as a business user (of anything) you don't have the same rights as a consumer. I found this
http://www.lawgistics.co.uk/legal-article-warranty/motor-trade-warranty-guarantee-service-contract/what-are-the-customers-legal-rights-when-buying-a-used-car#sthash.mAO60g1k.dpbs
Which is from a sellers POV, but does give some insight. Basically, as a business user you're back to the sale of goods act 1979.
Again looking online it gives quite a lot less rights to businesses than "consumers"

SFAIA the sale of good act has been superseded (is that even a word ?? ) by the consumer rights act of 2015

Yes, but if you buy a van for work, you're not considered to be a "consumer"
Different set of rules with less rights.

It's under "who is a consumer" on that page I linked to above.

this is the van,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RENAULT-MASTE ... 1438.l2649

looks well. it seems a nice van. obv ya not buying a new van so ya cant expect like perfection.

it has a couplea dints and like the wing mirror covers area a bit scratched. but even if they were brand new theyd be scratched in a weeks time.
