Oustanding Finance Around 1 in 4 cars on uk roads today has a finance aggreement in place, buy one and you buy the debt! So you will be risking not only loosing the car but your money as well! Most loans are secured on the car or vehicle and remain with that vehicle and in the lenders ownership until cleared!
Stolen A stolen car or vehicle remains in the ownership of the individual or company from whom it was taken! So you could find yourself being stopped by the Police, the awkward situation that follows, as well not only loosing the car but the money you paid!
Write-off/ Damaged Has the car or vehicle been involved in a serious accident and been badly damaged or completely written-off by an insurance company. Some damaged cars can be legally be repaired, inspected and returned to the road but there value is substantailly reduced. Other severely damaged ones should be scrapped completely and never returned to the road but some are! In other cases the idenity of a damaged vehicle is used in the illegal activity of 'rining' where the damaged vehicles(known as the donor) id is used on a similar stolen vehicle. Besides the safety aspect, as these vehicles can carry real risk and danger to drivers and passengers, if you do buy one losing it and your money is again a real possiblity.
False identity with 1 in 5 cars having had a plate change and with 100's of 1000's of stolen log books or V5C's in circulation today, ringing and cloning is a big problem. Checking the V5 belongs to the vehicle and is up to date and that VIN number stamped in the cars body matches the one on the attached plate as well as on the V5 is essential.
