    Shocking judgement, been following this thread for sometime, maybe it's time to scrap my car than sell it.


    I wonder if one used the AA private seller forms would have helped. I.e put in a disclaimer noting down the faults present at time of sale and that buyer agrees it drives from A to B with no obvious problem recognising it is not a new car?


    At the end of the end Karma will catch up with the seller and she will get hers in due time.

  • When you step foot in a county court you must be prepared to appeal to a real court the decision.
    If you are not prepared to appeal, as I have advised many, stay out, pay up and stay away.
    A county court judge does not have to use or follow any law, they can make it up as they go along which is quite obviously what happened here.
    Where you can provide case law to show the decision made on law was incorrect you have immediate and automatic right of appeal to a higher court where the the law must be applied.
    You can still appeal if you have paid and you get every penny back plus the costs.

    Wipe the grin from their faces by filing an appeal form.
    The form is N164 from the courts service.

    A Circuit Judge can deal with an appeal in County Court.

    The Judges in the County Court circuit are Barristers or Solicitors with at least 5 years in practice. Trouble is, rhe cases they hear may not be in their area of Legal expertise and so they make rash judgements without actually knowing anything about that particular area of Law.

    For instance, your Judge may ne a family law specialist with little/no real knowledge of consumer law and contract law, so made her decision incorrectly.
    You will know who the Judge was, so you can check out her details to find her legal speciality if you really wanted to.

    I'm with the rest in that this needs to be appealed. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but you can simply re-submit all the evidence you used in the first defence with and additional sheet setting out that the claimant failed to adhere to a Court Directive with regards to having the vehicle inspected.

    Perhaps we should setup a crowdfund to appeal, I'd be happy to chip in a few quid to get things going.


    ON principle I hate to see deserving people get off.

    Can you just clarify categorically though the judge ruled against you because the car was in her view not as described (i.e you said or implied it was not faulty) or just because it was faulty?
