Hi all,

 

My car was taken from outside my house for a debt nothing to do with me. It was not HP but a loan. The loan was taken out by the previous owner on the 20th Jan when I had bought the car on the 1st Jan. How can this be?

I take it the dates you are refering to are from 2007

 

Did you get the registration document when you actually picked the car up.

Tip us a wink on my scales if you think I may have helped at all;)

Well after what you've said, it sounds a bit like fraud to me.

Have you spoken to the police?

I had a feeling that you were going to say that my lord.

As chris600 says, you need to get down to the local nick and report a possible fraud or deception.

 

Just out of interest, do you have a dated receipt or bill of sale.

My daughter has just bought a car. No logbook as friend of friend had only bought a couple of weeks earlier, sent off the logbook for change of owner and still with DVLA. Since then, he's sold it on to my daughter. So presume this situation could happen to anyone?

What can be done to safeguard our cars then........if a logbook can't be obtained on purchase......

LOL sounds too obvious Chris...

 

Is it really enough for these guys though if some scrawl from a third party if only a second hand car bought from a friend or neighbour?

 

Mind you - SOUND ADVICE FROM CHRIS HERE - as insurance company will want one too if any claims go in to prove value of vehicle!!!

 

Thanks

I would say it was, of course if that person is still a friend, then they can back it up.

 

The Statutory Declaration is another way, it's a versatile instrument.
