Hiya, I'm wondering if anyone would be able to give me any advice.
My brother bought a car at the beginning of May this year (£2250 + trading in his old car) from a garage.
He's had nothing but trouble with it since but that's a different story!
yesterday morning he received a note through his door from a repossesion company,
after ringing them it turns out that the previous owner (who we believe to be the owner of the garage he bought it from)
had taken out a log book loan on the car for around £2000 and they have said my brother must surrender the car to them.
We have contacted trading standards among other people and
they are going to look into it but have said it can take up to 5 working days which isn't much help
as the repossesion people have said they are coming at 4pm tomorrow and if he doesn't surrender it they will tow it away,
while I understand the loan company want their money back
I don't see how they can just take it with barely any notice and leave my brother with nothing
- aswel as what he paid for the car he has also spent around £1500 on fixing it
(the gearbox exploded and even though the receipt for the car stated that there was a 3 months part warranty on the gearbox and engine,
the garage refused to pay anything towards it).
Sorry for the long post but any help anyone can give would be really appreciated!
