The le­gal op­tion

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Only con­sider le­gal ac­tion af­ter all other op­tions have been ex­hausted. Do not be vin­dic­tive; be clear about your aim. Do you want the re­pairs to be com­pleted, for ex­am­ple, or do you just want your money back? You will need to prove your ar­gu­ment, of why the work is sub-stan­dard, in con­sid­er­a­tion of the sum paid. Gather sec­ond opin­ions about the restora­tion work from your car club, other traders, or an in­de­pen­dent clas­sic car con­di­tion re­port to sup­port your case. Use­fully, tak­ing out le­gal ex­penses cover with your home in­surance pol­icy can help to cover not only the cost of an ex­pert opin­ion of the work, but also le­gal fees.

Go­ing down the le­gal route re­ally should be a last re­sort – and you need to be well pre­pared.
