The terms below will apply to every purchase of a caravan by NationwideCaravanBuyer.com.
Please note that all communications, whether by email, internet, telephone, fax, post, face to face or other means are conducted on a "subject to contract"
No legally binding contract between the Seller and the Company or its approved agent will be formed in any circumstances until (i) the company or its
approved agent has had the opportunity to conduct an appraisal of the caravan and inspect the accompanying documentation, AND (ii) a physical examination
of the vehicle has been conducted by a qualified mechanic on behalf of NationalCaravanBuyer.co.uk. or its approved agent AND (iii) the parties have entered
into the company's standard written contract of purchase which incorporates the terms stated below.
If you are a consumer, nothing in these terms and conditions will affect your statutory rights. References to the “Company” or
“Nationwidecaravanbuyer.com.” or “Approved Agent”.
References to the “Seller” relates to you, the owner of the caravan which is the subject matter of the purchase.
In order to commence the purchase process, you (the Seller) must visit the Nationwidecaravanbuyer.com website and fully complete the online valuation
process. You will need to provide us with certain information about the type and condition of the caravan that you want to sell. Once you have completed
the online forms a member of staff from Nationwide Caravan Buyer will contact you to discuss your caravan and provide a purchase valuation for the
company or on behalf of an approved agent. The valuation is provided on a “subject to contract” basis and is not legally binding.
Nationwide Caravan Buyer reserves the right to withdraw the valuation at any time without legal consequence and with no liability to the prospective
2. Price Quoted
The price quoted in the valuation will be in pounds sterling and will be inclusive of Value Added Taxation (VAT). All prices quoted in the valuation are
given in good faith and are derived from a combination of factors including the information supplied by the Seller.
The provision of inaccurate, false or misleading data by the Seller will result in an inaccurate valuation which cannot be relied upon by the Seller. If
for some reason an error in the valuation quoted has occurred, Nationwide Caravan Buyer will rectify the price as soon as reasonable practicable after
notification of the mistake No liability whatsoever can be accepted by Nationwide Caravan Buyer for accidental mistakes or errors caused by system
Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent will pay for the vehicle by direct transfer of funds into the bank account of the Seller only. Payment to
a nominated third party will generally be unacceptable for this purpose. Cleared funds should take between 10-30 minutes depending on customer's processing
bank after payment has become due. No liability is accepted for any delay which was unavoidable in the circumstances.
4. Seller's Warranties
The Seller expressly warrants that all the information supplied during the on-line valuation process is accurate and true. The Seller warrants that the
caravan is not subject to undisclosed finance. The Seller warrants to the best of his knowledge and belief that the caravan has not been an insurance
write-off or involved in any other serious accident that required substantial remedial repairs. The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed physical
defects with the vehicle that a prudent purchaser would want to be informed about (including cut and shuts, mechanically unsound or inoperable,
unroadworthy and/or chassis damage and the like). The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed "title defects" with the vehicle that a prudent
purchaser would want to be informed about. The Seller warrants that he is the legal owner of the caravan, has the right to transfer the full unencumbered
legal title and full ownership of the caravan to the Company. The Seller warrants than no other person has any claim to the vehicle whether legal,
equitable, possessory or otherwise.
5. Caravan subject to Finance
It is the responsibility of the Seller to disclose to Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agents any existing finance associated with the vehicle.
Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agents may agree to settle off the existing finance in lieu of payment (or part payment) of the caravan to the
Seller at its absolute discretion. Nationwide Caravan Buyer has no duty to pay such finance and will only undertake to settle such finance at its
absolute discretion. If the agreed sale price of the caravan is lower than the settlement figure required to fully settle any related finance, the Seller
must pay Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent the difference between the settlement figure and the agreed sum in advance of
Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent settling off the outstanding balance on the finance. Failure by the Seller to pay such a sum (and put the
Company in cleared funds) within 7 days of an agreement will automatically render the contract between the parties terminated. The Seller remains liable to
the finance company in respect to the related finance at all times until the credit agreement has been legally terminated. Nationwide Caravan Buyer or
its approved agent does not accept any liability with respect to the related finance at any time or for any reason. Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its
approved agent will use its best endeavours to pay off the settlement sum before or on the due date. However no liability is accepted if payment cannot be
made by the due date due to unavoidable circumstances.
6. Property and Risk
Risk and property in the caravan will pass from the Seller to the Company at the time that the written contract is signed by the Seller. Failure by the
Seller to sign the written contract will have the effect of delaying the passing of risk and property. Risk and property in these circumstances will
therefore pass on the “issue” of payment by Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent to the Seller and not on receipt of the same. If a cheque is
to be made payable to a third party (such as a finance company) in lieu of payment to the Seller, then risk and property will pass upon the clearance of
the cheque (or other appropriate means of payment) to the third party.
The caravan will be inspected by a Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent representative prior to completion of the written contract. A revised
valuation may be offered where (i) the caravan does not fully comply with the information provided during the online valuation process, (ii) where the
condition is such that it has a substantial impact of the value of the vehicle and/ or (iii) other relevant factors not disclosed affect the valuation.
8. Miscellaneous Items
When the Seller delivers the caravan, he shall provide Nationwide Caravan Buyer or its approved agent with all the necessary documentation relating to
the caravan such as service record and invoices, CRIS (log book), spare keys, manuals etc.
9. Consequential Losses

and other forms of expenses and compensation.
