Disclosure of a Vehicle with a Rebuilt Title Status
Our firm represented a car dealership that was sued for allegedly selling a vehicle with a rebuilt title without disclosing this fact to the buyer. After a three day trial, the jury determined that our client was not liable, and a full defense verdict was entered. Although our client won, dealers should be reminded about disclosures when selling a vehicle. Although there is currently no Georgia statute requiring dealers to disclose to a potential buyer that a vehicle has a rebuilt title, fully disclosing this and any information about the vehicle’s history is always a good idea. If a potential buyer does request whether the vehicle has a rebuilt title, the dealer should always disclose that information. Requiring the potential buyer to sign documentation that fully discloses the history of the vehicle, in addition to an oral disclosure, can help prevent future problems or potential litigation for you or your company. If you have any questions about the laws governing the sale of your vehicles, feel free to contact us about potentially representing your company.
