So I'm in Sydney and I'm in the process of buying a car from Melbourne.
Signed the contract and paid a deposit to them to hold the car - organised mechanic inspection at my expense but no one was there to give the mechanic access to the car (all pre-arranged but I suspect the dealer probably forgot, also I guess the dealer was not there physically because of covid, but agreed on date and time so they should've been there)
Now I'm already out of pocket for the inspection (and no inspection was done) and the dealer is pushing me to not do an inspection. To me it smells a bit fishy so I'm thinking of pulling out.
What are my rights in terms of getting the deposit back? The contract signed has subject to finance and subject to inspection. Dealership is in VIC. Also did not receive a receipt from them for the deposit, is this normal?
