I have put a car on TradeMe and selling it at $1 (start = reserve).
Was reading through NZTA website on selling a vehicle for best practice as I have never sold a car privately before.
The car does have a current WOF (expires November) however its older then a month and have I stated that its "sold as is where is basis".
Is this normal practice to get a written confirmation from the buyer that they accept that the WOF is older the one month?
Just wanted to check with any of the experts that might be here.
Warrant of fitness required
Buyers can insist on a WoF being less than one month old. This helps protect them if faults have developed in the vehicle since the last WoF check.
If the buyer doesn’t insist on this, they should give the seller written confirmation that they accept that the WoF is older than one month old. This protects the seller – it confirms that the buyer is aware that the current WoF is older than one month.
Vehicles without a current WoF must be advertised for sale ‘as is, where is’. If the buyer is happy with that, they should give the seller a written undertaking that the vehicle won't be used on the road except for taking it for repair or a new WoF inspection.
