Background:

Our client purchased a vehicle from people referred to him by an acquaintance. 10 months later the vehicle was repossessed by a finance company. Our client had made the error of not checking the PPS register to see if there was any money owing and secured against the vehicle.

We carried out searches and found the name of the person to whom the vehicle was registered was not the same person who actually sold the vehicle. Further searches confirmed that the person to whom the vehicle was registered at the time it was sold to our client, was the person who received the proceeds of funds from our clients purchase.

Outcome:

After our demand for reimbursement was ignored we commenced proceedings against this person and obtained judgment. We also recovered the full amount owed plus interest and our clients legal fees on an indemnity basis.

Our client was so satisfied that we now handle all his personal and business matters
