hello anyone i need some advice on how to proceed


i was given a car by my mum and



i was going to do repairs



i registered in the wifes name as it was going to be hers a surprise no less but it was going to be too expensive to fix


i got a letter from dvla

a tax reminder s



called the number to sorn went through the process and thought that was it



two weeks later i got another letter to tax or sorn



i did process again and thought that was that



i then got a third letter stating the same



i went through the process all over again. and surprise surprise



i am now getting threatening letters from hlsolicitors acting on behalf of sigma red

my wife has mental health issues at the moment after a near fatal car crash and

this was going to be a gift for her to try and get her back in a car

she is suffering depression and struggling to deal with issues



i contacted sigma red and told them of situation

they told me to put in writing and they would get it written off



i sent a letter explaining what has happened and

i am still getting letters saying they will take me to court if not paid in 14 days.



how do i fight this and

what is the best course of action to take

the car is now gone as it was going to cost too much for me to repair



i was quoted £2500 for repair and value of car on the road was around £800

so was cheaper to buy another car please advise

If you have no proof of these phone calls I don't think you will get much sympathy from the DVLA.


Was the phone call to make a declaration of SORN or just an enquiry ?


Sigma saying to put your story in a letter means they have conned you into giveing them the admission they wanted that you had a car that wasn't sorn declared.

also the wife never knew about this car as it was going to be a surprise and

she never knew it was in her name



i have 6 cars at home and hers was in the back of my garage under cover



she would never have seen



i am not loaded by the way



my most expensive car is worth £1200 which is the one i use



the rest are all sorn and



if i was to sell them they would equate to scrap value or spares or repair

ignore HL they cant do a thing to you on a gov't debt



deal with the DVLA ONLY.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
