The last thing you ever want to happen when making a large purchase is to have a feeling that you just got ripped off. While it is true that bad luck can happen and you may buy something that breaks down soon after, but if the person who sold it to you ahead of time knew that there was something wrong with the item then you may have a case to take them to court. Even if you are not fond of lawsuits, you may have no other course of option.
Is there anything worse than having to deal with a car salesman who is not honest? It seems they want to squeeze every dime they can out of you. Plus, they are not willing to admit that there is anything wrong with the vehicle you want to purchase. However, they will go over your trade-in with a fine-tooth comb and are more than happy to tell you that your vehicle is not worth all of that much.
If you buy a vehicle from a dealership and it soon starts to fall apart, you have a couple of options on your hands. You can request them to fix it at no cost to you. You can return the vehicle to them and get your money back (although that will get tricky with fees and especially if you have traded in a vehicle). Still, there aren’t many dealerships that will go for either option. If this happens to you, don’t feel bad one bit if you have to contact a lawyer to see if they can get your money back. The last thing the dealership wants is a lawsuit. Plus, if this gets out on social media, it could greatly affect the number of customers that frequent their business.
Buying a House
It may be tricky to prove that the seller of a house knew about a problem before you bought it from them, but it is worth a try. Every buyer should get a home inspection completed before they purchase a home. The problem is that they do not have X-ray vision and cannot look behind walls or in pipes and septic tanks. If you feel that the seller definitely had prior knowledge about a problem and did not disclose it as they should have, you should contact a hidden defect lawyer. A house is a large purchase and if a problem arises that is going to cost you tens of thousands of dollars, then hopefully you can reach a settlement of some sort to help you out.
