Pendragon's success in overturned their £134,000 conviction for failing to tell a customer a car was an ex-rental vehicle has signalled game-changing guidance for all dealers and brought welcome relief to potentially catastrophic claims and prosecutions.  

Geldards' expert Automotive Team has been at the forefront of the car retail industry guidance regarding the disclosure of the previous use of cars and led Pendragon's important challenge.

This seminar will hear from industry experts involved in the case including Jonathan Kirk QC of Gough Square Chambers, Jonathan Butler, Partner of Geldards LLP, and Dean Bowkett of Bowkett Auto Consulting.

The seminar will outline the implications of the case and prove to be an invaluable tool for the used car sector. The topic areas will include: 

  • Details of the Pendragon case
  • The CTSI consultation
  • Misleading actions and omissions
  • Material information and the concept of need
  • Pre-contract information under the Consumer Rights Directives
  • Interference with contract law
  • Market value, condition & vehicle provenance
  • Expert evidence
  • Civil claims under Part 4A
  • Creditor liability
