You have just sold your vehicle.

Your buyer complains of disorder after possibly incurring significant costs on the vehicle and wishes to engage your liability for hidden defects.

The situation is complex and the cause of the damage, which must be prior to the sale, and not result from normal wear and tear, is difficult to determine.

Or the claimed disorder has already been repaired while you were the owner. It is advisable to call on the cause of Garage which has an obligation of result towards you.

A judicial expertise is ordered.

The vehicle is immobilized, storage costs are incurred, and the buyer suffers disturbances of enjoyment or, pending the outcome of the dispute, is obliged to rent a vehicle or take out a lease for another vehicle.


Time passes… And costs accumulate.


So much so that, in some cases, repair costs, storage costs and disturbance of use or rental costs exceed the purchase price of the vehicle.




If you were unaware of the existence of this defect, if it was really hidden from you, you are not required to bear these costs.

It is only when you are aware of them (example: hidden perforating corrosion, an obvious lack of maintenance, tinkering with the car, etc.) that article 1645 of the Civil Code will make you bear these costs or damages (The professional seller is always presumed to know the defects and ordered to bear them).

And, if you have called a professional (mechanic, inspector, technical or other), whose fault is recognized, this professional will bear these costs.

In any case, a legal procedure being always uncertain, it is always advisable to avoid them and to try to find a quick solution, sometimes even if it means accepting concessions.

In any case, be assisted by an expert lawyer in this litigation who, through his experience and competence, will be able to enlighten you and advise you effectively.
