Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Did your appeal get dealt with? Alex
I can deal with this online. I am just preparing the legal answer if you want it?
Sadly you are liable, this is because you are technically the legal keeper of the vehicle until the V5 is transferred. But what you can do is sue the person for any costs that you have.
You can write and ask for payment of the penalties.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.i am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
