Question posted in the Consumer Protection Law category relating to Gauteng
Good day, we purchased a vehicle from a dealer in Newcastle KZN, we live in Pretoria, that closed shop overnight as we were supposed to get the vehicle registered on our name. He is in jail for fraud but we have an admin mark on our vehicle in my possession that means we can't register it. They say the financier took the logbooks and he is saying we need to pay him more money to get it. The admin mark is for dispute of ownership.
We have proof of payment and full and final settlement papers from the dealer. The licensing office wants a court order to clear the mark and register it.
Please advice how to go about this. We dont have the money to fight this in court.
