    Update on new van

    We have seen and had inspected by CLS a Frankia motorhome. Unfortunately this had a personalised number plate which has had to be changed to a new number. The vendor has gone on holiday fron July 17th until 20th August while this is being done ( 30 working days).

    In July while we were waiting for the change, we put a the details in a HIP check. This came back OK except for the fact the date of issue was not recognised.

    We tried with the new date we had been given by the vendor, but this new date was not recognised either.
    We thought the issue of a new number plate would sort the matter out and the new HIP check would show all was fine.

    Dave tried, however, to input a new check last night so that we can get on with the sale.

    Now the HIP check says the new number plate has not been recognised. This might be because they have not received the info for their records. ( The vendor's son says he has the new reg certificate but not the log book yet from the DVLA).

    Should we be concerned? We are not willing to go ahead until everything in the Check is ok but I still feel uneasy. Sorry this is such a long post.
    Any advice welcome.

    Hi it sounds like the private number is causing the problem.Check that all engine & chassis numbers are correct then if they are right you should have no problem,but I am pretty sure you can get the info off the DVLA ??? GEO may well know ?

    It's HPi and get the chassis number checked as they will have this on file

    Normally DVLA re-issue the original number the vehicle was first registered on

    Thanks for the help, folks.
    We have tried the new registration number again tonight for the HPI check. Again it says the number is not recognised.
    We are going to ring them tomorrow to see what is going on.
    Either there is something not right, or the DVLA of HPI are slow at communicating
    with each other.
    What do you think?

    Hi Lucille
    During any reg transfers DVLA,VOSA,and HPI go into limbo and block any and all requests, the reason being is two sets of documents could be prepared at the same time for one vehicle and this is an absolute no no, there will be a day soon when all will fall into place if your at all concerned wait for it to happen
    your main concern should be finding out on any reg number that will; work, that
    1. no finance company has any interest recorded
    2.it is not recorded as stolen or stolen recovered (lowers value)
    3. has not been subject to total loss (really lowers value)
    all the rest you can physically check before hand over
    ie chassis numbers and documents Match, reg address is where you are buying from, person selling is the reg keeper etc
    Geo
    if you like pm me the any of the reg,s just the reg no other details and I will see what I can find,I have limited access to old records but don't hold your breath
