My husband and I are relocating to Spain in 2 weeks time, and would appreciate some advice on a car we have been offered.
A friend of a friend used to live in Spain and 2 years ago drove their Spanish car to the UK, intending to return a couple of months later. Their plans later changed and as such they have had this car in their garage the last 2 years that they now want to sell at a bargain price.
To their credit, they have told me that the Spanish tax has gone unpaid for 2 years, and that it is 2 years out of ITV, but neither have they exported the car from Spain or imported it into the UK.
If WWe go ahead and buy the car is it likely to be difficult to transfer it into our name, ITV it and pay the outstanding taxes, or should I avoid this car like the plague ?
