    Default Buyer won't collect vehicle after payment.

    Odd predicament.

    A guy bought a vehicle from me. Paid in full 3 months ago. He keeps putting off the collection. What can I do I need it off my name and property. Also struggling to get his ID to do the transfer of registration.

    Inform him there are now storage fees due and you will sell the car within 14 to offset against the outstanding storage fees

    you could send an ultimatum to pick up saying if he does not pick up by certain date you will refund the money and put the vehicle on the market again.

    have you cancelled insurance , advised him.

    maintenance ? , eg: battery may not be in same state ?

    Cannot just resell , you are no longer the owner.

    You might have to follow process and sell car to defray expenses. Definitely storage costs are due.

    How very strange!
    It smells like some kind of scam, but what I just dont know. Maybe hes waiting for you to get gatvol and ask to transfer the money back to him, and once you do that he reverses his payment or something? I dunno.

    Ultimatum to collect by a certain day + that you will be back dating the storage fees at market related rates, ie a fee R100/per day if it is not collected by that day. Ultimatums normally make people wake up sharply.

    Be careful with this as he can later claim that he hasn't taken possession or ownership of the vehicle as it is currently still registered on your name. I think start by sending him a courtesy message stating that the vehicle needs to be removed and you will be seeking legal advice that will be claimed against him with costs.

    Im assuming you have paperwork proving the sale of vehicle was concluded but why wasnt the ID given after the sale was done?

    Park it in the street - tell him to pick it up or it will stay there until its affirmatively shopped

    I've had the same, sold a vehicle, buyer paid a deposit, then the balance a few days later, about 3 weeks later I asked him when he will be fetching, sorry he was just really busy, will get around to it in a few days time, it was the strangest thing ever, anyway he fetched it and went off into the sunset

    Odd.

    I'd expect this if you know the buyer personally and there's mutual trust.

    If not, sounds a bit strange...

    Just be nice, no need to be Rambo here.
    The Guy paid you already, he trusts you, he gave you his money.
    Tell him you dont have space, where can you go store or park the Car for him (on Whatsapp - have a paper trail), and he must sommer email you his ID, you need it to take the Car off your name early next week.
    And he MUST sign off the NCO Form. You hand that in, and then he has 21 Days to go register in his name.

    That is strange....maybe he is scared of his wife...bought the car without her consent....lol.....maybe he is busy making space or move where there is space for the car...ask if you can deliver the car in person and he can sign the NCO sametime.

    Thanks guys.

    Guy is a Saffa overseas. Collectable old Landy. I have asked for his ID as I want it off my name after that I can park it in the street with his reg docs or wherever.But I can't get his ID. I leave to emigrate soon and property sold. I have whatsapped him again a few times. If push comes to shove il scrap it and leave it in a yard that will change fees or claim vehicle. Strangest thing. Reads my messages. No reply or partial excuse....

    I've requested this. As well as informed him of my intentions to emigrate.

    You've got proof of payment..... Go fill out an affidavit at your local police station and attach it to the NCO, submit that lot at the traffic authorities, then inform the buyer that it's standing outside ready for collection
    It's no longer your property or problem

    This is an interesting scenario/situation.

    What is Source of funds ?
    Was it Cash deposit or Cross border EFT?

    If OP offers to return the payment, where to ?

    EFT via FNB. GaryFrank seems to have the best advice I think I may go that route.
