Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long has the garage had the car for?
No problem and thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. You can potentially place a ‘charge’ on the car but because this is made by you as an individual, it will not be registered anywhere and not as good for the company in terms of the security they may want.
There is some further information on the options here:
In the end you will likely need a solicitor to implement any such security, or you can still do it the simpler way through a written agreement where you promise to pay these costs on the sale of the car.
Does this answer your query?
Yes it can be and it is possible the only thing was with the practicalities of doing that which is not always that easy if it involves a private individual like yourself. But as mentioned this ‘charge’ can just be a piece of paper which clearly describes each party’s rights in that respect
