Watch what you write on an invoice:

BBC’s Watchdog, on 01 May 2013, discussed the second hand car market. In the episode it makes reference to notes made on a vehicle invoice. In this particular incidence, the trader had tried to remove all of the consumer’s statutory rights by writing on the invoice:-

“Car has been test driven and customer has happily bought car with no harassment. Customer loses all legal rights to pursue any matter now or in the future by signing this.”

This of course is illegal. You cannot remove consumers' statutory rights on a sales invoice, any attempt to do so will not be looked at fondly by a Judge in Court.
