my car is gone


whats my next move?


Hi Carterboro...


Hopefully you are spending a bit of time looking through the various threads on the forum???


But there is an interesting piece of information that may assist you and others...


Hip hop posted a link to the Encyclopedia of the Laws of England;

It makes reference to the situation where a car is sold by the lender where the Bill of Sale may be unenforceable due to Section 9 of the Bill of Sales Act 1882:


It read:


'Section 9 avoids a Bill of Sale in toto, so that the grantee cannot even sue on the covenent for payment. He can only recover the money actually advanced with interest at 5% on an implied agreement (Davies v Rees 1886, 17 Q B D 408'

So, you question 'how does this help me?'


If you can show your bill of sale is unenforceable - and you can show that the Bill of Sale does not comply with section 9 (form of a bill of sale) - then you can sue them for more than just taking your car - in fact if by any slither of their imagination they believe they can take you to court for the money outstanding under the agreement - you can advise the Judge that the max they can claim is the amount orignally loaned plus 5% (this is useful - if you have paid them that amount prior to them taking the car).


Hope this helps?
