Car seller V5 issue




      Not at all common.  Just because two people on an internet bulletin board have done it doesn't make it common.

    I said fairly common ie not all that unusua,l it happens, just because you wouldn't do it doesn't mean anything. Others can and do p/x and do for a myriad of reasons. Your reasoning is flawed.

    .  Your signed declaration is pretty much useless - about as useful as a chocolate frying pan for making fried eggs.
    How so? How is taking a sensible precaution of asking  seller to declare his legal interest and ownersip of the vehicle he claims to own not going to help me, the buyer, in a potential fraudulant transaction?

    It appears to me you are saying don't collect any evidence, proof that you may later rely on to help you recover your a civil court, you know one of them places where they examine evidence. You don't seem very wise my guy :rollseyes

    So what would you do to help cover yourself in my position ? Nothing ?

     A private seller doing a part ex is unusual.  It is not at all common and must be done with great caution.  Without the V5, I would walk away.  No, I would run away.

    Sorry am I missing something here ?
