In this case, notwithstanding clause 2.1 above, these terms and conditions set out our policy to regulate our relationship with You in relation to the sale or supply of the Vehicle. These terms and conditions are however incorporated into any contract between You and us in relation to any Part-Exchange Vehicle (defined in clause 9.1) and in relation to any ancillary products and/or services that you purchase from us.

3. Your Vehicle
3.1 Unless You are purchasing a Vehicle that is new, the Vehicle may previously have been used as a lease or rental car or have had multiple users. It may also have been imported from another country. We will use reasonable endeavours to provide You with any
additional information in our possession about the Vehicle on Your request. However, if You have any questions about the previous use of the Vehicle, or have any specific requirements, You are advised to discuss these with us before placing Your Order.
3.2 The mileage on the Vehicle may vary marginally from the mileage stated on the Order Form and/or other documentation that we may provide to you due to variety of reasons such as test drives, PDI tests, inspections and/or delivery to You.
3.3 The images and/or specification of the Vehicle on our Website is for illustrative purposes only. Although we take reasonable steps to describe and present the Vehicle accurately, we do not guarantee that the images and/or specification of the Vehicle on our Website exactly reflect the actual appearance and/or specification of the Vehicle, in particular the colour. If there is a particular specification that you require, You should specifically check this with us prior to placing the Order.
3.4 If the Vehicle has a cherished number plate registered to it, unless stated on the face of the Order, such cherished number plate will not transfer to You as part of the Order.
3.5 Any retention, transfer or allocation of any special or cherished number plate of Yours is effected at Your risk. St Leonards Motors will not be liable for any loss, destruction, incomplete or delayed transfer
3.6 Any costs incurred by us in effecting a transfer at Your request of any cherished number plate from or to any Vehicle or Part-Exchange Vehicle shall be payable by You even if not expressly stated in the Order. We may also charge an administration fee of £50.00 at our discretion for preparing the required application(s) for such transfer.
4. Payment and Charges
4.1 We use a third-party provider to process payments made on our Website. The processing of payments are between You and the third-party provider and will be governed by such third-party’s terms and conditions and privacy notice from time to time. It is Your responsibility to read such terms and conditions and privacy notice before making any payment and ensure that You understand and agree to be bound by them.
4.2 The Vehicle must be paid for in full using Cleared Funds before legal title to the Vehicle is transferred to You and the Vehicle is delivered to You. We are unable to accept any cash payments, whether paid to us in person at a dealership or paid by You directly into our bank account. Any payments made by You using either of these methods will be rejected and will not count towards Your Order.
4.3 On occasion, additional sums relating to the Vehicle and/or ancillary products and services which may not have initially be included on the Order Form and/or Supplementary Order Form may be chargeable. We reserve the right to charge additional sums where we consider it to be reasonable and appropriate even if such payments have not been specifically discussed and agreed between us at the time You placed Your Order. This may include for example a delivery charge where, after placing Your Order You decide that You want us to deliver the Vehicle to Your home or place of work rather than You collecting it from the dealership and/or You decide to have a protection product applied to the Vehicle. Any such instruction by You will be deemed to make a corresponding change to the Order as appropriate
4.4 If we have agreed to register Your Road Fund Licence with the DVLA in connection with the Vehicle then we will organise this either before or at the time You collect (or at the time we deliver) the Vehicle to You. If we have not agreed to register Your Road Fund Licence then You will be required to register Your Road Fund Licence with the DVLA at the point that You accept possession of the Vehicle.
4.5 The purchase price of the Vehicle includes VAT (where applicable) at the current rate chargeable in the United Kingdom on the date of Your Order.
4.6 From time to time we may offer Vehicles for sale at promotional prices. Any such offers may apply only to selected makes and models or specific vehicles and/or specific selling methods and will at all times be subject to availability and may be subject to specific dates. Delivery charges, conditions and geographical exclusions may apply.
4.7 Any sums paid late or which are overdue for payment in accordance with the Order will accrue interest and compensation from the original date due until the date of actual payment at a rate of 8% per year.
5. Finance and insurance
5.1 You may elect to fund Your purchase of the Vehicle through finance arranged by us. All finance is subject to status and is not guaranteed.
5.2 We act as:
(a) a credit broker and credit intermediary in relation to arranging finance and not as a lender; and
(b) an ancillary insurance intermediary when offering and arranging regulated general insurance products and not as a claims administrator and not as an insurer.
For more on our regulated status and the services that we provide please visit our Website.
6. Delivery or collection
6.1 Once we are in a position to do so, we will provide you with an estimated date that the Vehicle will be ready for delivery to You. We will then contact You to agree a delivery date at the supplying dealership or, if You have paid for delivery to another location, to that alternative location. We will only deliver the Vehicle to You if we are in receipt of Cleared Funds for the Vehicle. If a planned delivery is delayed by an event that is outside our reasonable control we will contact You as soon as possible to let You know and we will take reasonable steps to try to minimise the delay. We will not be liable for any such delays, but if there is a substantial delay of one month or more, then You may terminate the contract by written notice to us within two days of being notified of the delay and receive a full refund of any money paid by You in accordance with the contract and we will have no further liability to You.
6.2 If You fail to collect and/or accept delivery and/or pay for the Vehicle within 14 days of the date notified to You that the Vehicle is ready for collection, we may (at our sole discretion) either store the Vehicle at Your cost or give You 7 days’ notice that we elect to treat the contract as wrongfully terminated by You, in which case clauses 2.9 (a) and (b) will apply.
6.3 Upon delivery of Your Vehicle to You, You must provide Your photographic UK driving licence or other acceptable form of ID to us or our delivery specialist to verify Your identity against Your Order. We reserve the right not to deliver, or permit the collection of, any Vehicle if this identification is not provided to us when requested.
6.4 If You need to rearrange a delivery less than 24 hours prior to the agreed scheduled delivery time, You may incur a charge of £100
6.5 Upon delivery, You may be asked to confirm to our delivery specialist receipt of Your Vehicle and that it conforms to Your Order. You may be asked to sign a Delivery Note and this will be confirmation that You have received the Vehicle. The Vehicle will be Your physical and legal responsibility from the time that you take possession of it and this includes You keeping a valid motor insurance policy (which must comply with the terms and conditions of any finance or hire agreement that You may have entered into in relation to the purchase or supply of Your Vehicle) in place in relation to the Vehicle and having the appropriate Road Fund Licence in place (if
6.6 If You are not available to take delivery of the Vehicle at the agreed date/time, we will leave You a note informing You of how You can rearrange delivery and at what cost. If You do not collect the Vehicle from us as arranged, or if, after a failed delivery to You, You do not rearrange delivery, we will contact You for further instructions and may charge You for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact You or rearrange delivery of collection of the Vehicle, we may elect to treat the contract as wrongfully terminated by You, in which case clauses 2.9 (a) and (b) will apply.
6.7 Unless You have entered into a Hire Purchase or Conditional Sale Agreement, ownership and legal title to Your Vehicle will pass to You once the latest of the following takes place: (i) we have received full payment of the purchase price of the Vehicle in Cleared Funds; and (ii) we have accepted and taken possession of Your Part-Exchange Vehicle (if applicable); and (iii) You have taken physical possession of the Vehicle. You agree to hold the Vehicle and the Part-exchange Vehicle (if relevant) to our order and keep the Vehicle and the Part-Exchange Vehicle (if relevant) fully insured until legal title passes to us.
6.8 You should contact the DVLA if You do not receive the V5 logbook for the Vehicle within 7 days from You taking possession of the Vehicle.
6.9 You will be responsible for paying any fines, charges or other administrative payments from the time that You take possession of Your Vehicle. We may provide Your name and contact details to any lawful company or authority if a fine, charge or other administrative payment is due in connection with Your Vehicle and Your details were not registered with the DVLA at the time that the incident or alleged incident giving rise to the fines, charges or other administrative payment occurred.
6.10 If You authorise a third party to collect or accept delivery of the Vehicle on Your behalf, then You do so entirely at Your own risk. We may ask You to put this authorisation in writing to us although we are not required to do so. We reserve the right to ask for a valid proof of ID from the third party and we retain absolute discretion not to release the Vehicle if we have any suspicions as to the identity or integrity of the third party. All relevant legal responsibilities relating to the Vehicle such as valid motor insurance (which must comply with the terms and conditions of any finance or hire agreement that You may have entered into in relation to the purchase or supply of Your Vehicle), Road Fund Licence and similar conditions will apply to the third party as they do to You.
7. Vehicle Insurance
7.1 We may offer You, at our cost, free driveaway insurance for a period of 7 days starting at the point that You take possession of the Vehicle, subject to approval by the nominated insurance provider and Your policy being activated. We cannot guarantee that You will be eligible for this insurance as this will depend on whether You meet the insurer’s pre-determined criteria. Please note that we cannot advise or assist You with the process of arranging this free driveaway insurance.
7.2 The insurance provider will require You to provide certain information to them on an application for this driveaway insurance. If You provide false or misleading information to the insurer in order to benefit from the driveaway insurance, the policy is unlikely to be valid. If You accept this insurance, You will enter into a direct agreement with the insurance provider for the driveaway insurance on their terms. If You need to claim on the insurance and/or You have a complaint about the insurance policy, You must contact the insurer or their claims administrator directly.
7.3 If You choose not to apply for and receive the free driveaway insurance, or you are not eligible for it or You apply and are declined, You will be required to provide Your own insurance in order for You to drive the Vehicle lawfully. We reserve the right to ask You to produce or confirm that You have a valid policy of motor insurance in place before we release the Vehicle to You, although we have no obligation to do so.
7.4 If You have entered into a finance or hire agreement in connection with the purchase or supply of Your Vehicle You will be contractually required to take out a valid policy of fully comprehensive motor insurance at all times that the Vehicle is subject to the finance or hire agreement. If You fail to keep the Vehicle fully insured the lender will have the right to terminate the finance or hire agreement and repossess the Vehicle for Your breach of contract.
8. Distance Sales
8.1 If You have entered into a distance selling contract (a “DS Contract”) with us, then you will have the right to cancel the DS Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI No 3134. You have the right to cancel the DS Contract with us within 14 days commencing the day after the day You take possession of the Vehicle (the “Cancellation Period”) without giving any reason.
8.2 If You would like to cancel a DS Contract, You must inform us of your decision by using a clear statement to this effect and include all relevant information in relation to the Vehicle (the “Cancellation Request”).

If You have not heard from us within this time, please contact the selling dealership during normal office hours or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.4 It is likely that You will be required to return the Vehicle within two days of us acknowledging and accepting Your Cancellation Request. The Vehicle return process must be agreed with us in advance and You must not attempt to return the Vehicle to us without following the process in clause 8.3. It is likely that You will be required to return the Vehicle to the dealership that supplied it to You. You are responsible for arranging the Vehicle to be returned to us and for any costs in doing so. If You would like us to arrange for the Vehicle to be collected from You, we will provide a quote for doing so and You will need to pay these collection charges.
8.5 Until the Vehicle has been returned to us and we have acknowledged receipt of the Vehicle, You are responsible for ensuring that the Vehicle is stored securely, is properly insured under a valid motor insurance policy (which must comply with the terms and conditions of any finance or hire agreement that You may have entered into in relation to the purchase or supply of Your Vehicle) and is kept free from damage until it is returned to us. You must not cancel the motor insurance policy that applies to the Vehicle until the Vehicle has been returned to us and we have acknowledged receipt of the Vehicle.
(a) You have not yet received the V5 registration documentation for the Vehicle and cannot therefore return it with the Vehicle, we will retain £250 from the refund that we will give You until such time that You provide us with the V5 registration document for the Vehicle or we are able to obtain a replacement V5 from the DVLA; and
(b) You were provided with more than one set of keys for the Vehicle at the time that You took possession of it, but You only provide us with one set of keys for the Vehicle, we will retain an appropriate amount (which will be between £250 and £500) for each set of keys that You have not provided, from the refund that we will give You.
8.7 Subject to clauses 8.8, 8.12 and 9.8, if You cancel Your DS Contract within the Cancellation Period, we will refund all payments received from You for the Vehicle (including any amount You paid for delivery), without delay but no later than 14 days after the date on which the Vehicle is returned to us.
8.8 We will issue Your refund using the payment method which You used to pay for the Vehicle save that any refunds for Part-Exchange Vehicles (as defined in clause 9.1) will be undertaken via bank transfer. No refunds (or part of a refund) will be paid in cash. If your payment is refunded but we subsequently discover any damage to the Vehicle that was sustained during Your period of possession or ownership of the Vehicle then we reserve the right to claim a compensatory amount from You with payment due by You within 14 days from written notification being provided to You.
8.9 If as part of the return of the Vehicle You direct us to settle any finance that we arranged for You in relation to Your purchase of the Vehicle, we will refund the required sum, settle the finance and return to You any surplus funds. However, if the amount of such refund is insufficient to settle the finance then You will be required to provide such additional funds required to fully settle the finance.
8.10 If a cherished numberplate has been transferred to a Vehicle that is returned to us in accordance with these terms and conditions, any subsequent application to transfer such cherished numberplate to another vehicle or retain it pursuant to a retention certificate, will be entirely at Your risk. We will not be liable for any loss, destruction, incomplete or delayed transfer.
8.11 Please note full details of Your consumer rights can be obtained in the UK from Your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Your Local Authority’s Trading Standards Office.
8.12 If You are cancelling the contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI No 3134, we are entitled to assess anything that has caused a diminution in the value of the Vehicle as a result of You using and handling the Vehicle beyond what is necessary to establish its nature, characteristics and functioning. Such an assessment (which may be up to the contract price) will be deducted from Your refund or alternatively payable by You. The following are examples of what we would usually take into consideration
when assessing whether anything has caused a diminution in value of the Vehicle:
(a) whether the Vehicle is free of all financial charges (other than any that relate to any finance or hire that we arranged for You in relation to the Vehicle);
(b) whether the Vehicle is in the same condition You received it in, without damage or having been in an accident;
(c) whether the Vehicle requires any excessive cleaning;
(d) whether the Vehicle has been driven more than 100 miles from the date that You took possession of it;
(e) whether the Vehicle has been altered and/or modified and/or personalised in any way
(f) the fact that the Vehicle has been registered with the DVLA as a result of Your purchase of, or the supply of, the Vehicle; and
(g) whether all sets of keys, documentation (e.g. the V5 registration documentation, service book, Vehicle manual) and accessories (e.g. floor mats, SD cards, locking wheel nuts and security codes) provided to You as part of the sale or supply, have been returned to us with the Vehicle.
9. Part-Exchange Vehicle
9.1 If You wish to provide us with a vehicle in full or partial consideration for the value of the Vehicle (a "Part- Exchange Vehicle") You must be the registered keeper of the Part-Exchange Vehicle. You must provide us with any information regarding the Part-Exchange Vehicle which we may reasonably request.
9.2 If we agree to consider Your Part-Exchange Vehicle, we require that You make the Part-Exchange Vehicle available for our inspection on taking possession of the Vehicle. We are not obliged to provide a part- exchange option when selling the Vehicle to You and our decision to examine and value any part- exchange vehicle, including the valuation we give to You, is solely at our discretion.
9.3 For the avoidance of doubt we are entitled to amend any valuation for a Part-Exchange Vehicle, or reject a Part-Exchange Vehicle for any reason, including but not limited to circumstances where a Part- Exchange Vehicle has changed condition since we provided a valuation or the condition of it does not match the description or information given by You; or there is a discrepancy in the recorded mileage or the legal registration or chassis number; or the odometer has been changed, replaced or altered; or it has been in a major accident, is or becomes a write-off or is categorised as insurance category, or has been subject to a total loss claim; or any other issue is identified by an HPI check or equivalent car history check; or is not Your property to dispose of or You do not have the right to sell it; or is missing or has an incomplete V5 registration document or such documentation is not in Your name; or still has a finance marker on it at the point of collection; or is an imported vehicle (e.g. left-hand drive) or was not first registered in the UK; or has been used for taxi, private hire, chauffeur or rental purposes, driving tuition or as a police vehicle or used by a local authority; or does not have a valid MOT or is due for a service in the next 100 miles; or has any mechanical or electrical fault (including or not limited to problems with steering, transmission, clutch, gearbox, suspension or breaks). These are all conditions of the contract for the purchase of the Part-Exchange Vehicle by us and You warrant that such conditions are all correct.
9.4 When handing over a Part-Exchange Vehicle to us You must provide: all sets of keys; the V5 registration documentation and, where available, any associated documentation (such as service books, service history, MOT certificates etc.) and any extras that we will need such as the locking wheel nut for any alloy wheels and any security codes associated with the Part-Exchange Vehicle without which we may not accept it or we may offer a reduced valuation at our sole option.
9.5 Where a Part-Exchange Vehicle is subject to finance (or any similar charge) or where we have agreed to settle any finance connected with the Part-Exchange Vehicle, You authorise us to settle the amount due to the finance company. If however the settlement amount exceeds the agreed value for the Part- Exchange Vehicle agreed between You and us, You agree to pay the excess amount to us to make up the shortfall
9.6 If a Part-Exchange Vehicle is not subject to finance, then title will pass to us at the same time that title to the Vehicle passes to You. If a Part-Exchange Vehicle is subject to finance then title will pass to us as soon as the outstanding finance has been paid and the finance is cleared.
9.7 If for whatever reason You do not complete the purchase of the Vehicle, St Leonards Motors Ltd will not be obliged to complete the purchase the Part-Exchange Vehicle from You.
9.8 If you have rights of cancellation and you decide to exercise Your cancellation rights, or the contract for the Vehicle is rescinded for any reason, and we accepted a Part-Exchange Vehicle as part-payment for the Vehicle, we may at our discretion either:
(a) refund the value (if any) of the Part-Exchange Vehicle that was used as part payment for the Vehicle (and we retain ownership of the Part-Exchange Vehicle); or
(b) if it is still available, return the Part-Exchange Vehicle to You in which case you must pay to us any costs we have incurred to repair or increase the market value of the Part-Exchange Vehicle and any amounts we have paid to settle any finance in relation to the Part-Exchange Vehicle in accordance with clause 9.6.
9.9 Any retention, transfer or allocation of any special or cherished number plate associated with the Part- Exchange Vehicle is effected at Your risk. St Leonards Motors Ltd shall not be liable for any loss, destruction, incomplete or delayed transfer.
9.10 If You provide us with any documents such as repair invoices, service history and MOT certificates and/or leave similar documents (the “vehicle information”) in a Part-Exchange Vehicle on handover to us, we will assume that You wish for this vehicle information to be passed to the new owner of the Part-Exchange Vehicle. If the vehicle information contains Your personal data such as Your name and contact details then, if you do not want the new owner(s) of the Part-Exchange Vehicle to have Your personal data, then You must take appropriate steps to anonymise Your personal data before You hand over the Part- Exchange Vehicle to us.
10.1 If You have a complaint about Your Order, the Vehicle or any other matter then please in the first instance contact the supplying dealership. Otherwise You can contact us as follows by writing to us at 3, John Macadam Way, St Leonards On Sea, East Sussex, TN37 7SQ or by emailing us at email@example.com and we will aim to get back to You within two business days.
