Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know was the deal with the lorry in writing?
There was no deal in writing, ho do I confirm what he is saying is correct
The owner just changed his mind?
not really and even though he says he is the owner he is not prepared to show documentation.Dont forget that we have a V5 showing that the registered keeper is the company
Yes I know that but how did you know the lorry was part of the deal?
Because he said it was
And this is the same person that has changed his mind now?
How come you have the V5?
I assume he has the vehicle?
Is there a way (legal of course)where I can find out the name and address of the owner.We have the V5 because it is in the name of the company and we are in possession of the vehicle.
He he says he wants to start charging a monthly rental for the vehicle
Ok - so you have the vehicle in the Company that you now own?
Ok - then you dont need to worry
You have the V5, you have the company
Everything is in the Company nam,e
He can try and charge rental but you can refuse this on the basis there is no agreement.
I would however get the locks changed in case he tries to take it
But if you refuse to pay all he can do is issue a county court claim
You can defend it on the basis that you have the vehicle, V5 document and the Company
So the ball is in his Court. You dont need to do anything
It would have been a different process if he was refusing to hand over the vehicle
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks but is there a register in existence where we can prove/disprove that he Is the owner
No. V5 is compelling though
Does that help>?
ok thanks for your help
Great. Can I help with anything else about this?
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://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/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 matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
