The Vehicle is Subject to Finance but not on a Register

The use of the various registers to check whether cars are on finance or are subject to any other security alerts is a wise precaution. It may show up problems, which you werenít expecting.

However there are two important parts to remember.

a) If you buy a car which, say, is subject to finance, and it is not on a register when you check it, you donít escape liability even though you have taken that wise precaution. Insurance is available but as with all insurances, check the small print and make sure it is what you want and covers you.

b) If the car was not recorded on the register, but should have been, you cannot sue the register company for negligence.
