Previous owner's insurance stopped the day it was sold so if you have been driving it over the past few days, you have been driving without insurance which is an offence. However if you have only had the vehicle 4 days, how have you been able to get a V5C in your name so quick as it normally takes 2 weeks minimum?

Okay that explains why the clamp is still on the car as that part is not proof of ownership. How did they manage to trace the car to the new address? Were you able to produce a Bill of Sale? Your best bet is to contact the council with the details, telling them to call off the bailiffs otherwise you will be seeking compensation from them as the car is in new ownership. Makes you wonder how many other tickets are going to pop up?

you need to take proof of purchase to council and that should be enough.

This looks like a clamping by an ANPR van which received a 'hit' for an unpaid PCN by a previous owner.

 

This policy is flawed because it deprives the current owner the lawful use for an unpaid PCN by a previous driver.

 

You need to telephone the clamper and find out the original PCN number and identify which council issued it.

 

Speak to the council and record the call and if they give you trouble you can make a Form N208 emergency application to recover your vehicle. There is a £400 court fee but you get this back from the council. Just turn up at court they can usually find a spare judge kicking around the office to make the order.

 

When you are done you can have a chat with the council about compensating you for unlawful deprivation and your out of pocket expenses.

Thanks for your advise, but this is transport for london not council, and can it be any court nearest to me to fill this N208 form or the court that issue the warrant ? why are they askin for my insurance when they are not police or insurance company with accident related issue are they try to look for more grounds to hold my car as they keep telling me that they think i have link with previous owner as it was on company name prior to me buying it, but not finnance issue with anyone, just 1 yellow box contrervention.

Unfortunately, many people "claim" that they had purchased a car and it is later found that the "sale" had been simply a "paper exercise" in order to transfer a car to a friend/relative etc in order that the vehicle would not be seized by a bailiff pursuing an unpaid PCN.

 

It is because there are so many cases such as this that genuine new owners have so many problems proving that the sale had been above board.

 

Even on the forum there have been MANY queries from the public asking how to backdate a log book for the same reason.

 

On the warrant of execution, it clearly provides the VRM of the car that was involved in the contravention and therefore, if the car is located by ANPR and DVLA still have the vehicle registered to the previous owner then almost all bailiff companies will require sufficient documentation in order to establish that a "real sale" has taken place and that a "proper consideration" had been paid.

 

Therefore, they will require the following:

 

A receipt for the purchase

 

Proof of how payment was made ( copies of bank statement, cash withdrawal slip etc )

 

Many times, proof of where the vehicle had been advertised for sale (Exchange & Mart, E-bay, local newspaper etc)

 

Finally, a copy of the Insurance certificate with the start date matching the date of purchase.

 

In your case, as the insurance is not yet in place are you able to provide evidence of the amount paid or a copy of the advertisment ?

 

This is a TfL contravention. Which bailiff company is involved?

 

How much roughly is the car worth?

 

PS: Do you know how many PCN's are outstanding?

TFL is accountable for the bailiff and yes, its your local court you make the N208 application.

 

I dont think insurance is relevant because police can do a insurance PNC check. Its not for a private clamping company to inspect insurance documents.

 

Speak to TFL and explain whats happened and ask for the clamp to be removed, but you must record the call because you need to make an application for costs with your N208 if TFL is uncooperative.

Hi

 

The other issue you may possibly have with this is if the vehicle was parked on a public road with no valid insurance and no declaration of SORN it can be clamped.

 

I have seen people get caught out with this with a vehicle parked on a public road with good old DLVA Clampers coming into estate checking vehicles as its a public road and the MOT may be in date but the vehicle has no insurance and the registered keeper has not declared it SORN so DVLA Clampers Clamped Vehicles.

 

Registered Keeper contacts DVLA Clampers has to provide valid insurance and also gets a fine so please be careful how you handle this one if it was clamped while on a Public Road.

As the car was only clamped today I really do think that you should think very carefully before paying a large fee to file a claim in court.

 

You will need to satisfy the District Judge that the sale was above board. My personal opinion is that if the necessary documentation is available then approaching Transport for London is far cheaper, easier and quicker and furthermore, you do not run the risk of costs being awarded against you.

 

As I have said, this is purely my personal opinion.

Is the insurance in your name? If not, it probably is not valid.
