    Bailiffs and vehicle

    Hello All

    I have just found out from the bailiffs that my tenant's vehicle is registered at a different address (I think where he used to live before) so they cannot cease the vehicle. He has been at the current address and did not inform DVLA. Is there anything I can do ?

    Is he the registered owner? Did you ask the bailiffs what to do about it?

    Edit: you'll need to phone the bailiffs early in the morning before they go out and about. they're usually difficult to get hold of

      Yes it is registered in his name. I spoke to someone senior. They will look into it.

        I wonder what address he has given his insurance company ....... if it is a different one to where he lives and the vehicle resides then it could be invalid and they may well revoke it, also the V5 is only who the keeper is not the owner, i thought they could seize it and ask for his bill of sale.

          Just checked his vehicle on gov website. Untaxed since 2019. MOT expired 3 months ago. No clue about insurance. I am guessing he has no insurance. I saw him driving the car.

            So grass him up, tax, mot.

            Shame his Tyres were all deflated

              I think the different address is just an excuse from the bailiffs, they obviously don't want to deal with a fairly low-value car. The registration doesn't even need to be in the correct name and they can seize it.

                The artfullodger - but how can I prove that I saw him driving the car ? He will say he did not drive it.

                Ted E Bear - hopefully I will get a clearer picture tomorrow of why they have not clamped the car yet as I have complained to someone in senior position.

                Possibly you are right in your assumption. Maybe the Enforcement Officer is not sure what to do.

                  My experience when dealing with bankrupts is the cost of seizing the car and putting it into an auction with a low value vehicle isn't worth the hassle, for what will probably only be 300 quid or so. The leverage they can get through seizing the car can make it worthwhile though. Taking their car really hurts debtors.

                    I agree with the above, i suspect the officers did not want the hassle and paperwork for a crappy car.

                      They could just clamp it ?

                        The car is about 3k. Is it crappy ? The judgement is below 3k with bailiffs fees.

                          Sounds it to be honest, auction prices with no keys or documents will be a lot less than book value

                              Neelix - I am enforcing the judgement via HCEO. The T. does not open the door when they come and does not reply to their phone calls. The only option available is to take his car but so far HCEO have not done in. I am trying to establish the reason why - see above.

                                The last full blown bailiff eviction I did was well before Covid. Using section 21 to evict a non paying, ASB, violent, drug dealing tenant's new boyfriend who made the neighbours' lives hell.

                                Even so, with calm hindsight, the timescale was fairly reasonable.

                                I thought I’d start a new topic, rather than hijacking others as I’ve probably been guilty of that in the past.

                                That's a very good point. Shades of debtors' prisons.

                                But it works both ways. I was summonsed for non payment of council tax on a rental property. Out of 250 rubber stamped hearings I was the only defendant to turn up in person.

                                Hi everyone,

                                I am being chased by Birmingham City Council for Tax dating back 2 years.
                                Duding this time the property was let out under fully managed agreement. I signed a business let agreement between my self and the Estate agent.
                                Trouble is the estate agent has failed to...

                                Hi, thanks for the advice Hudson. Part of the problem is that one of the couple is a solicitor (but not in conveyancing) and seems to know what they can get away with so I feel like I am always fighting a losing battle. I also feel that if I start with solicitors letters they will involve all the neighbours...

                                Hello, could I get some advice because I bought a flat with a share of the freehold 11 years ago. A couple bought the other flat in the house about 5 years ago and I was unable to consent to their plans for building an extension before they moved in and they have been annoyed since that happened.

                                The solicitor you spoke with i think was right, at the moment you are seen as the weaker party in this dispute and i see no reason why they would change their ways in the future, in fact i can see them taking even more liberties It may make the flat more difficult to sell with legal action taking place,...

                                Yes you can appeal but need to look at the specific grounds. Buy a copy of CPAG Welfare Benefits Handbook, it's all in there.
