I want to know the legal position with regard to him having up to six cars parked in a small cup de sac. he claims to be a used car salesman but he has the same cars he had over a year ago, despite them registered for tax and insurance purposes under sole trader basis. If they are personal cars shouldn't he have to have normal road tax and insurance?
I rang the council a year ago but they were very vague. From memory they said he wasn't breaking any laws if he had legitimate road tax and didn't block anyone's drive. However they were vague about his requirements for running a used car business from his house. I spoke with friend who worked for trading standards who said my neighbour should not advertise cars for private sale and yet pay sole trader rates for tax and insurance but for him to investigate he would need a petition
