Let me explain,


I bought a car (even though i can't drive) and then i sold the car onto a family friend. Now the log book went missing and we sent off for a new one which never came. Now while i forgot about the log book, the family friend didn't say anything and managed to get 2 fines, the 3rd one came from when they lent the car to a friend and they they got a ticket from a Matalan car park. What i didn't know was, that the car was still registerd in my name, so being stupid, i ignored the fines, now their coming back to bite me on my a**e big time. Now i don't know what to do, i have phoned the bailiffs and told them that i don't have the car nor can i drive. I've even offered to pay some money weekly but they said no and wanted much more than i can afford. Can someone please help me as CAB have been no help.




Sorry as been pointed out 2 are from Redbrige Council & the 3rd is from Havering Council i.e the Matalan one

If council tickets, you;d better pay up ad seek to recover the money from your 'friend'. Next, as a matter of urgency if you have not already done so, complete the paperwork of transferring the RK to the friend.


If you paid for the replacement V5C why have you not chased them up about it? Don't delay - things can get worse very quickly.

The owner is responsible. It may be possible to set the warrant aside on the gorunds that the owner didn't receive the notice to owner, but I'd like to hear what others think.


Alternatively the bailiffs fees can probably be challenged – don't let them in.

Post by me are intended as a discussion of the issues involved, as these are of general interest to me and others on the forum. Although it is hoped such discussion will be of use to readers, before exposing yourself to risk of loss you should not rely on any principles discussed without confirming the situation with a qualified person.

By the letter of the regs, you are liable since you received the official notices and did not action them. You only have a fixed time to contest liability and that is long gone.


Do you have paperwork confirming the sale? If not, I think paying might be your only viable option. You could attempt to file statutory declarations, but you probably don't have any grounds.


How much money are you owing now?
