check with a lawyer but my understanding is you have signed a sale and purchase document only, the transaction has not been completed so I believe you can cancel.



To me, its binding. Offer has been accepted, in writing, it is an enforceable contract. Consideration is there, the purchase price. The $2k isn't relevant I believe. The issue I feel is if they changed the terms after signing. 



It's binding on the basis that once a car has been registered under a name, it is a used car, and it no longer can be sold as a new car. until that has happened, there is every chance to get it back. how hard will depend on how hardball the dealership wants to be.


of course legally - then it's up to the judge. their rule can be amazingly interesting to the lay person. if you can get away with murder, then you can get away with drink driving, then you can get away with buying a car that's been registered to you, then you can get away with a $2000 deposit when no car has been registered and the purchase terms have magically changed (although it doesn't sound like they were all in black and white writing!)



Contract Law. Offer, Acceptance, Consideration. In writing its valid and enforceable, if not in writing its valid but unenforceable. Then you need evidence. Thats what I recall.


Registration has nothing to do with it. Its a simple, contractually binding sale and purchase of this model car, this colour, and so on.


The altering of the contract, post signing is another matter. If that was correct, and evidenced, I have little doubt it would be awarded\

Have you tried having a friendly conversation with them?


"I'm really sorry about this, but things haven't gone my way financially and I can't afford the car now. I like the car, and would hope to purchase it if things turn around is six months, but I can't guarantee that. Is there any way we can cancel our agreement?"


You may lose your deposit, but that's better than having to pay the full cost.
