Is there something about a sold item-- must be fit for purpose and as advertised? Come on forum lawyers help our friend out, we might all be guessing and giving the wrong info

I think the info is in here
http://www.ashfords.co.uk/uploads/Se...20Pitfalls.pdf

sale of goods act 1979

sale of goods act and services 1982

specifically
Misrepresentation
This is a false statement of fact by one party to the
contract, made before or at the time the contract is
entered into, that induces the other party to enter into
the contract. A statement can be a misrepresentation
even if you do not know that it is false. Therefore, when
negotiating sales the broker should not make any
statement regarding the yacht unless he is certain that
it is true. If the buyer relies on a misrepresentation and
later suffers loss, he could claim against the broker for
such losses.

Poly is quite right.

If any of you have sold a house through an agent this decade you would have been asked to confirm if the description that is going to be advertised is correct. The agent can not possibly know if your roof leaks when it blows a south westerly, therefor he can not be held responsible. It is down to the seller (the current owner not the agent) to sell what he has fairly. Unless the broker said there is nothing wrong with the fuel tank you will struggle with any claim, even if he did you need to try and prove it.

If it were you, as a dealer, I'd imagine that you'd be a bit miffed that your customer was unhappy and offer to help? No? I would.
Even if you come out even, the good will always comes around.

It's the previous owner, but what's difference, because is the broker who sold me the boat?
i 've this document from the broker:



it's written 1999 not 1993.

Your right. That's why we stopped selling used boats 4 years ago. We were running around through no fault of our own trying to keep people happy. All for between 5 & 10% you can't carry on like that to long.

Who described the boat to you?
Did you go to the broker or did the broker arrange for you to buy it from the owner?
Did the broker take commission from you or from the buyer?
Chaps.......the solution to Eric's problem should be obvious here.
I'm not clear on it, but I reckon Eric's in line for some fix surely.
Eric, who's the broker? Or is that unfair? Both sides offer their say.

i only had one contact, or by email or by phone: the broker, the broker describes me the boat, i often asked about the year he never told me 1993, or for the boat or for the engine.
when i came, i only saw the broker, i don't know who paid him.
when i had the issue with the internal tank, i contact him every day.
i don't know if i can give his name.
