Can bailiff take car of registered keeper who is not owner?
Can bailiff take a car from a person owing money if they are the registered keeper and NOT owner?
As you will see from the article on the difference between registered keeper and legal owner of a car, if the registered keeper is not the owner, then he does not own the vehicle and does not have any rights to the car which subsequently means that the bailiffs are not allowed to take it away.
If that happened to you, then the legal owner can sue the bailiffs as the car does not belong to the registered keeper and they are wrong to have done that.
