I have studied contractrual law at uni. My take on the situation would be that the company who effectivly "own" the boat may be able to take it back, but becasuse the seller has told you (in writing) that there is nothing owed on the boat you should be able to claim damages against him for the money you have lost.....

In order for a reposention to take place it has to go before a judge.

I don't think you can prove that there is no outstanding finance on the boat by doing a HPDI check or similar!

I guess the best way of ensuring that the vendor is genuine is to see proof that the house you are buying it from is his and ask to see his reciept for the boat! If it says paid cash by your vendor (presuming it came from a business) then there ain't a finance agreement on it. You could also ring the original vendor if your still unsure. If he can't produce a verifiable original reciept then walk away.

keep a copy of the advert that first attracted you to the boat in case it turns curly.

if your stil nervy bung a lawyer a monkey and get him/her/it to handle the transaction

Im sure it will all be fine but even an HPI check can't be totally relied upon. My car came back clean; seems the original owner didn't tell the insuance company when he crashed it. As long as everything's in writing you can't go too far wrong.

Which half did you do the HPI check on?

Mr kk@decor82.fsne - there's some true words said here. When I bought, I mitigated the risks by buying from someone I knew, and I had got to know many of his friends so effectively references had been taken! If you're buying from someone you've never met before then the advice to use a solicitor as an intermediary may have some value. I think that using a thug as an intermediary may have more practical use though... you could make it clear to the vendor that if there's any future comeback, he may lose his kneecaps. The question to you is... are you suspicious of the vendor? And why? If you are, then walk away from the sale. You're certainly right to ask for paperwork - there should be an original bill of sale for the boat and for any additional equipment fitted. There should be an engine log book. And if the current owner isn't the first owner, ask for all the receipts in the chain. The more that's missing, the more suspicious the vendor is.

Why does that mean it's not dodgy?

Boats aren't as straightforward as cars, it's a jungle out there! You need to keep your wits about you and trust in your instincts about people. And as for the banter... many a true word said in jest.

Best of luck with your new purchase.
