Has anyone bought a car without a V5 and successfully managed to get one from the DVLA?
I keep noticing old series Landys for sale on eBay where the seller has no documents for them - obviously the price/bidding reflects this but I was wondering what sort of level of hassle/expence one has to suffer to produce a V5? Presumably one has to produce some sort of proof that the vehicle they're applying for is now theirs? Anyone done this?
...Oh and so the thread doesn't turn into a 'buyer beware' one we'll assume the LR in question is legit, the reg number is known and the elderly farmer who owned it passed away leaving his family to dispose of the vehicle but the documents cannot be found!
