Under Section 37 of the MCT Act, a car dealership cannot knowingly purchase (or take) a used car, sell, take possession or be taken over by a person apparently under the age of 18. The contract does not comply with Section 41 (used cars) or Section 42 (new cars): these sections provide that a car sales contract must contain the prescribed information and that a copy of the contract is made available to the buyer at the time of sale; It is not uncommon for consumers to make the mistake of signing contracts without first reading them. However, once you have signed a contract, the law requires you to comply with the conditions to which you have agreed. This is especially important if you sign a car purchase contract for a new or used expensive car. If the dealer has used an unfair practice to get you to buy the car and you are within one year of signing the contract, you can terminate it. These warranties should not be confused with the statutory warranty for used vehicles under Section 54 of the MCT Act. The statutory guarantee under Section 54 gives the purchaser the right, in certain circumstances, to require the car dealership to repair a used car, but not to give the buyer the right to terminate the sales contract. The car sales contract you are going to sign in a car dealership is much more complex, especially if you are financing the purchase of a new car. You may feel overwhelmed by the length of the document and all the fine print. However, these contracts are not as difficult to understand as they may seem at first glance. These are almost always standard forms, as most states require all merchants to have the same form of general contract. The only thing that differs is the information that the parties indicate on the form. Car dealers use a car purchase contract or car sales contract to close a sale.
These contracts serve as a sales contract between the buyer and the seller. The contract cannot be terminated if the buyer is the cause of the delay (s 41 MCT Act; reg 22 (1) sch 3 MCT Regulations). If you buy a used vehicle from a private seller, the seller may ask you to sign a sales invoice which is a very simplified form of car purchase contract. Sellers need to have proof that vehicles are no longer in their possession when vehicles are to be abandoned or involved in rear-end collisions. It also serves as a “pink brief” for buyers until the paperwork is complete.
