Hi,

Thank you for your query.  I am a Solicitor-Advocate in the UK and will be assisting you with your question today.

Are the vehicles registered in your name?

they are

He took them with police in attendance saying it was his property
Expert:  INC Law replied 15 days ago.

Hi,

If the vehicles are registered in your name, NO, he cannot do this.

I would suggest you do the following:

1. Report the matter to the Police.

2. Apply for new V5 documents from DVLA

3. Possibly obtain a non molestation order against the former partner.

I hope this answers your question.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
