Thanks Hi, wondered if anybody could advice please!!
My OH, who is registered and works as a gardener/handyman here in France worked for an English couple for several years and at the beginning they paid regularly on presentation of a Facture. Several months ago they decided to go back to England because of financial circumstances and asked if my husband would accept an (English Reg car) in place of monies owed. As we needed a smaller car we agreed and said car was handed over. When we went to get it insured for use over here whilst changing the registration over to French number plates, we found that there was no Change of Ownership paper with it so the Insurance Co., said they could insure it for 6 months only whilst we sorted everything out with the previous owner and produced a Carte Gris. After many telephone calls and conversations with PO, no paper work was ever forthcoming and we have no address for them in England! Hence out 6 months has now expired; and they have disappeared. We are now left with a car that we cannot use anymore and is sitting in the garage...........
Has anyone any suggestions/advice on how we can change the ownership over legally?
The person my OH worked for was involved in buying and selling cars in the UK.
Worried of Normandie!!
