I am interested in a van some way away. The caravan is not at the owners house, but at a compound 13 miles away.

I have asked for the owner to email a copy of the CRIS document, they have refused saying that I can see it when I view the van.

Was my request unreasonable?

Thanks,

Fortyfoot

Data protection and all that.

Also, personally, if it was me I wouldn't have done it either.

You could try asking for the CRIS number and check it out yourself.

If they refuse that - I would suspect something is not quite right.

CRIS charge the princely sum of 14.95 for doing a check.

CRIS link.

Ask the seller if they have updated Cris when they bought the caravan. It's optional & plenty don't. If it has not been updated then you need to pay for a check yourself to ensure it has not been stolen at sometime during it's lifetime.

It does depend how much you are paying for the caravan. Several 1000s then do a check but once caravans get old enough to be worth a few 100s then few will bother with checks or updating.

Seller was correct refusing to send CRIS details.

There is nothing to prevent seller emailing Cris number to allow potential buyer to pay for his own check. I would guess it's simply seller cannot be bothered. Ie if you want caravan come here look at it, pay for it & take it away otherwise don't waste my time. Ime plenty of sellers take this attitude. You ask them simple questions on ebay & they do not even seem capable of a coherent answer.

The op in fact asked the seller the wrong question & assumed seller had updated Cris when he bought it which may not be the case.
