I'm hoping someone can give me some advice.

 

I had my Mercedes clk convertible SORN'd and uninsured in a secure lock up underground car park.

 

I am the owner and was the registered keeper.

 

 

I say was as someone unknown to me had the car transferred into their name by the DVLA.

I never received any correspondence from the DVLA.

 

 

I phoned the DVLA and they won't give me any information as I'm not the registered keeper. It's ludicrous.

 

I owned the car outright and had known the previous keeper and was with him when he purchased the car 6 years prior to me owning it.

 

The new registered keeper then had a locksmith come and clone a key and drove it out of the car park at the end of July,

MOT'd it a week later and sold it the next day apparently for a paltry amount.

I noticed it a week later and reported it stolen.

 

Initially the police said it was a civil mater(how?)

then they eventually listed it as a stolen a few days later.

 

 

36 hours later

the person who purchased it

rang the police saying that the car he had just bought for a 5th of its value had been reported stolen.

 

Initially the police left the car with the new purchaser but have now impounded it.

 

 

I feel like I am bashing my head against a brick wall as the officer dealing with it

didn't believe the DVLA would just transfer it without my knowledge

until he had an email from the DVLA that they would so ordered it seized.

 

 

Now the person who had it transferred into his name has emailed the officer

and so again he is emailing the DVLA for clarification.

 

My car was stolen,

how do I get it back.

 

 

A civil case would cost me more than the car is worth

and I couldn't afford it either.

 

Has anyone had to deal with a similar situation,

 

 

what do I do to get my car back

firstly how did the person that applied for the v5 know where the car was, he would have had to get the reg number the chassis number the exact make and model, the cc of the car. the only way they could have done that is to look at the car or to hpi the car.

 

it is very rare for dvla to issue a v5 without writing to the owner and waiting 10 days to see if they get a reply. this means we could all just pick a car in the street apply for a v5 get a key and keep the car.

 

 

I would be speaking to someone very senior in Swansea to find out how this has happened.
