How much is it to get advice? ok.. my step son owed his
ok.. my step son owed his father and I money and we were pressing him to pay some off.He lived at our address and so my step son transferred his car a BMW which he had had for a few years into my husbands name at the end of June as part payment for the debt. he did not come home for a few days and yesterday we learnt that he had skipped the country and has left a trail of debt. He had continued to drive the car as we really didn't want it. We dont' know where the car is...when we tried to report the car as stolen the police refused saying the ownership papers meant nothing. and we could not prove ownership....they suggested we remove my husbands name from the papers so that it goes back to the previous owner (his son overseas by ownership papers. I asked who owned the car and they said his son would...however soon after that I was contacted by his sons business partner who said they had an interest in the car and that they too were owed money. They said that my stepson was supposed to put it in the business name but put it in his own name but I doubt they can prove ownership any more than we can...Anyway that aside neither of us could figure out how we can report the car stolen if neither of us can prove ownership. which ever way one looks at it the one person who drove the car,my now absent stepson did/does not own it.. If we cannot report it stolen anyone could have it and buy/sell it on as there is no red flag to stop them. so my question is .should we suspend the registration on hold? in the intrim while we sort out ownership as it would show up if someone tries to pay the rego or my stepson tries to sneak back in the country or is there a way we can jointly report it stolen because it is either way and for whoever actually owns it in the end. is there any way a person can report another persons car stolen? … read more
