Customer: we have written a breach letter and had it mailed to the party that breached the contract on buying my vehicle . they have missed 5 payments of $500 every week till the total amount of 1500, and are refusing to hand the vehicle over unless we hand thier first payment of $1000 back due to the warrant of fitness on the car that is not up to date. we had handed over the car and allowed them to pay the car off weekly untill they have paid the full amount of $2500 for the vehicle. they had already known about the faults on the vehicle and when we had left them with the car in auckland they knew about the faults and no complaints came up until thier first payment was missed and onwards,

How do we apply to tribunal disputes ? And how long does it take to get in court for our dispute?

Customer

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You should file in Christchurch
Customer
does it matter that the car is in Auckland ? Would they have to come to Christchurch Court ? Cause that will be even more of a reason for them to hand the car over

Customer
