either take it back to the seller and ask them to get it sorted, or take it to a reputable garage and have them diagnose the problems. Then take it back to the seller and tell them to fix the problems that have been found.

I’ve got the same car with 201k on the clock. Doesn’t use a drop of oil or coolant.

Without you getting under the car, cleaning it up and then keeping an eye on where it’s coming from, it’s just guesswork. If both fluids are leaking from the same area then it might be around the turbo. If it’s been off the car and the gaskets not renewed then this could be causing it.

Yea but must cover something, as car is registered with them
Like vehicle excise it may no longer be transferable between owners, but you may have to check with the RAC.

Have you got the document that covers the registration of the vehicle along with the date it was issued ?
