Customer Question

What action can be taken against the registered keeper of a van which has been parked for over four weeks in a private car park belonging to a village hall? The van is registered as being off-road (a SORN). A sign in the car park clearly indicates that it is a private car park for users of the hall only.

Thank you for your question.
I act for a private housing association where this has been a long standing problem on many occasions. What they do, and it works, is to get the vehicle moved to a public road and then the authorities will move it to a pound and will take criminal action against the registered keeper for having a vehicle on a public road whilst untaxed.
The village hall owners/occupiers are entitled to remove any property from their land that shouldn't be there.
That is far quicker than writing to the DVLA then the keeper of the vehicle.
Happy to discuss.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
