I’m completing the form E and the part about what you own over £500.
Me and husband had 2 cars, he put them both in his name but I have one and I pay the insurance, tax and everything on it. I live in a different house and it’s insured there. I will be seeking to keep the car and transfer it into my name as he has his car.
Should I include this on my form E on assets owed over £500?
If the car is with you, you should be the registered keeper. This is so DVLA can contact you when the tax is due for example. This is not the same as ownership. Speak to DVLA about transferring it, if necessary without the relevant paperwork.
Both vehicles are joint assets. It seems you also have a debt related to this vehicle. I would put it on form E (and the debt) and wait to see what he puts on his.
I hadn’t really thought about this. I could have a speeding fine and it won’t come to me as the car is in is name and goes to the family home which I don’t go to as he is violent ....that’s not good!
Could he be made to sign the car over to me in the settlement. It’s half the price of his and I have our daughter full time? I was very silly, he wrote off my car and used the money plus some of his to buy another so put it in his name.
I’ve had a look online to change the registered keeper. It’s asks if the original registered keeper gives permission. We have no contact and he would not agree anyway. I have the logbook but I would be lying if I ticked yes so can’t complete the change.
Give DVLA a call. I know someone in your situation who was able to do this recently. If you are the driver and it is kept at your place, you should be registered keeper.
And yes, you could keep the car in the settlement. It and the other car are joint assets.
