Threaten them with your legal costs as well, it might bring them to reality that they will not be able to retain the car a bit quicker, unless their solicitor is a twonk

How were the DVLA able to issue a new V5?

Even if it wasn't listed as stolen I thought they sent a letter to the owner on file if a new V5 was requested other than by the registered keeper.

OR

You get a letter when the registered keeper is changed.

Either way you should have had correspondence from the DVLA, they've had a few systems fail somewhere that I'd want answers to. Current

I find it amazing that the other side have lawyered up given that they’ve bought a stolen car without doing any checks.

Can you get to see the condition of the car before you get heavily involved with legal fees?

Having just been through court with a neighbour and now trying to recover nearly £20k, it’s amazing how quickly legal fees start to mount up.

I hope everything goes your way quickly. I also don’t see how the other party has a chance of winning.

I appreciate your sentiments and at a loss to understand our legal system, also have no idea what condition the car is in after 6 years, however, worth a punt IMHO Thumbs Up

It looks like one or more databases were not updated that the car was stolen.

Therefore, the person who applied for a new V5 may have carried out various checks which of course came back as "clear", so he/she may be an innocent party (the guilty being further back down the line).

Be interesting to carry out a check now.
