Lawyer's, Assistant
Dear Lawyer,
At the end of 2019, my 2 friends and I traveled to New Zealand. We just finished school in Germany and wanted to experience something before we start our studies.
For this purpose, we bought a van from a British couple to better explore the island and set off.
Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy it for long, as the first Corona case in China was announced at the end of 2019 and we had to leave the country just a few weeks later.
Through All-Space we found a garage, parked the car there and "escaped" home at the end of March, before more airports were closed.
Now, in 2022, we finally found a buyer for our van - which has since been deregistered - on TradeMe.
Now for our problem: The buyer took the car to a mechanic to see if he could re-register the van, but instead of getting a response, we were surprised by the new information.
All of the camping equipment on the van (folding roof, interior, refrigerator, sink, etc.) was never legally registered. Because of this, he no longer wants to accept the purchase and wants to either receive a payback of 66% or withdraw from the contract.
Does he have the right to do this?
When we purchased the van in 2019, we were not aware of any of the circumstances - nor were we made aware of any during our stay - and sold the van in good faith.
On TradeMe, we described the van accurately and truthfully to the best of our knowledge and he bought the van without looking at it.
It would be very nice if you could help us.
