An arrangement was made between Beresford and the dealer that the dealer would try to sell the car and provide a replacement with the funds.
On this basis Beresford wrote to Hermes on August 12 saying that as he was working with the dealer to obtain a solution, Feldarol would maintain the payments to Hermes under the hire-purchase contract. He also wrote that his rights and remedies were reserved if the car was subsequently rejected. He wrote again to Hermes on August 19 saying that the car was defective, and on August 23 Feldarol's solicitors wrote to Hermes saying that they rejected the car because it was defective.
Feldarol therefore made no further payments to Hermes under the agreement and Hermes accordingly purported to terminate the contract before repossessing the car from the dealer.
