Car finance in my name

Car finance in my name

Postby carlie1 » Tue Mar 29, 2016 8:42 pm

Hey guys,
I need a little direction please. I took a financial agreement out on a car for my ex partner. The loan is for about £10,500 with Santander and is in my name. He made about 4 payments and then we split up and has done a runner with the car. He cannot be found so I am left with this debt and no car. I am currently paying minimum payment of £10 a month just to keep the bailiffs off my back until I figure out what I can do. Any advice appreciated!!!

Is the car in your name?  If so, report it stolen.

Ask your ex for the car back. If they are being a prick find out where the car is and pay a towing company to pick up the car for you. Then sell it or giv it to Santander.

Be careful of reporting it stolen. Because you gave ex permission to use the car that could come back to bite you. 

If you legally own it then you legally can do as you wish with YOUR property!

I agree with flat lander. If your ex won't communicate with you, it's best to seek help look for your car. Towing services may also be a good option. In some places, you can eventually sue a person with that. I'm not sure in your place.
