WE WOULD SPECIFICALLY DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO SECTION 9 REGARDING PERSONAL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU.
1. Offer and Acceptance
1.1 When a Car is determined to be available and you wish to purchase that Car, we shall require from you a signed Vehicle Order. The Vehicle Order will detail the agreed Price and Specifications.
1.2 You should sign and return the Vehicle Order only if the Price and Specifications are to your satisfaction and you wish to proceed with the purchase. The signed Vehicle Order together with the Deposit shall be deemed an offer from you to Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd to purchase the vehicle detailed in the Order. Please note that you must return the signed Vehicle Order and Deposit to us within 24 hours as we cannot guarantee the Price or the availability of the Car beyond that period.
1.3 Upon receipt of a signed Vehicle Order, Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd will send you an Order Confirmation which creates a binding contract between Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd and the Customer.
1.4 Should your order be in conjunction with an application for finance, please note that all quotations are for illustration purposes only and do not constitute an offer to enter into a legally binding contract. Credit is available to persons of 18 years and over subject to status and credit approval. Guarantees and Indemnities may be required. Quotations for credit are valid for a maximum of 28 days and are subject to any changes in vehicle prices, residual values, supply terms, statutory legislation or interest rates. Once the credit approval has been obtained and the order agreed the acceptances for credit and vehicle quotations are valid for a maximum of 90 days from issue. Quotations and acceptances may be subject to change outside of these timescales.
1.5 You acknowledge that once Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd has commenced provision of certain services after acceptance of your Vehicle Order you will incur certain costs that will not be refundable in the case of a cancellation even where the cancellation is allowed under section 6.
2. Price and Payment
2.1 For a vehicle order to be initiated you must pay a minimum deposit of £500 either prior to or at the same time as you submit the order form. (for higher value vehicles we may request a higher deposit). Your deposit payment can be made by either credit or debit card (see 2.4 for fees in relation to credit card transactions). When the Car is ready for Delivery we will contact you to agree on an appropriate payment date and method. Once payment of the Balance has been made we will then send you a final invoice (Deposits - Vehicles up to £20000 - £500, £20000-£40000 - £1000, over £40,000 - £2000) (There is no credit card surcharge on deposits).
2.2 All Prices quoted on our web site are for information purposes only and do not constitute an offer by the company capable of acceptance by you. All prices quoted on the Vehicle Order will, unless stated otherwise, include VAT, number plates, 12 months road fund licence, Delivery costs and the first registration fee.
2.3 The balance of the Purchase Price, this being the Price less the Deposit and the amount of any Part-Exchange Valuation agreed by us, shall be paid before delivery of your Car. Payment can be made by either credit card (see 2.4 for fees that may apply), or debit card or an agreed method to our holding company account (Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd). We will not proceed with Delivery of the Car until we receive cleared funds into the Account in the amount of the balance.
2.4 Payments made by debit card or credit card are free of charge. Where payment is made by credit or debit card the relevant consumer and credit legislation will apply. We reserve the right to refuse your order where the card issuer refuses to authorise payment or where we have any other legitimate concerns about your payment.
2.44. If you pay the balance on a commercial card (i.e. not a personal card) be it a debit or credit card, then there will be a surcharge of 2.5% added to the balance.
2.5 Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd , if you so require, can offer you finance with one of our finance providers. All offers of finance will be subject to status. If your order is to be completed with the draw down of a finance or lease agreement please note that we must receive cleared funds from the funder before the Vehicle is delivered/released.
2.6 Please note that the Car will remain the property of Cort Vehicle Contracts Ltd until full and final payment is received by us. Failure to pay any sum when due under the Contract will result in the application of interest on the outstanding amount from the due date for payment at the annual rate of 3% above the base lending rate from time to time of Bank Of England, accruing on a daily basis until payment is made. If no specific due date for payment has been agreed, the due date for payment shall be deemed to be:
1. the date falling 10 days after receipt of the final invoice; or
2. (if earlier in time) the date of actual Delivery or Collection of the Car; or
3. (if earlier in time) the date falling seven days after the date of the notice we give to you that the Car is ready for Delivery or Collection

We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure we deliver the Car to you before the Estimated Delivery Date and we shall inform you as soon as is practicable if we are unable to deliver the Vehicle by that estimated delivery date. If delivery has not taken place within 28 days of the Estimated Delivery date, you will be entitled to cancel the contract and receive repayment of your Deposit unless you have agreed otherwise, verbally or in writing, to accept a late delivery. Where delay is caused by circumstances beyond our control we will not be liable for any damages related to the delay.

If you do not wish to accept Delivery of the Car because of such Damage, then DO NOT sign the Delivery Acceptance Note.

7.1.1 that the Part-Exchange Car is your own property and is either free from all encumbrances, or is subject only to one or more encumbrances capable of a cash settlement, in which case we will (after we have received your Part-Exchange Car and delivered the Car to you) apply an appropriate amount of the Part-Exchange Valuation to any appropriate third party to discharge any such encumbrances, and you accept that the amount of the Part-Exchange Valuation shall accordingly be reduced (and the amount of the Price payable by you in cleared funds correspondingly increased) by the amount required to discharge any such encumbrances;

7.3 If for whatever reason you do not allow us to collect your Part-Exchange Car within a period of 60 days of the date of the Part-Exchange Valuation; the total mileage of your Part-Exchange Car on Collection by us exceeds the estimated mileage used for the purposes of calculating the Part-Exchange Valuation; then we reserve the right to recalculate the value of your Part-Exchange Car to take account of the increased mileage and any other factors which may reduce the value of your Part-Exchange Car since the Part-Exchange Valuation was calculated, and you agree to be bound to pay the Price in accordance with these conditions utilising the recalculated value of your Part-Exchange Car in the Contract.
