As a buyer, when should I be releasing the funds to the seller?


We strongly recommend that as a buyer you do not release funds to the seller until you have had a chance to inspect the vehicle, are happy with its condition and are definite that you’d like to proceed with the purchase. For more information on safety tips for buyers, click here.

We recommend undertaking a CarFacts History Report to ensure that you have reviewed if there is any finance owing on the vehicle and ensure that the seller has arrangements with its financier to provide clear title of the vehicle to you.
