Hiya, posting for friend.


My friend had been with her boyfriend for nearly a year when he asked her to get a bank loan for a BMW car.

His credit rating was low so couldn't get a loan.


She got the loan from her bank and gave him the money for the car.


He is working and said he would give her the money every month to make the repayments on the car.

He has now left her and taken the car.


The log book is in his name as he told her she couldn't own the car as she doesn't have a driving license( she believed him).


She's at her wits end, working and supporting her 2 year old son and can't afford the £125 a month repayments.


Does she have any legal rights over car and what can she do...


... Urgent help needed please. Thank you in advance.

short answer is if the car is not mentioned on the loan, she has no control over it.



is it def that he is not going to continue payments to her?




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...

Has he made any repayments to her at all before they broke up?



Can this be evidenced - for example X amounts of £125 that your friend might have put back into her bank?



Is she still in touch with him - perhaps an exchange of text messages which mention the 'loan'

and which she might be able to use to evidence the fact that there was an agreement to repay?


Ultimately it comes down to Court action and getting a Judge to agree that it was more likely that this was a loan than a gift.



Written demand to repay the money by a specific date, Letter Before Claim and then issue a claim via MCOL

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

I made this mistake for my brother. I stopped the payments and the letters / calls stopped coming eventually. 1 year left until statue barred. Not that I recommend doing this.
