Legal owner of car
I purchased a car for my wife as she couldn't get the credit. The v5 is in my name and I have been paying the finance on the vehicle and my wife pays the insurance. We have split up and wanted to know who legally owns the car as we had an agreement to give the car back when our house sold but think she might refuse to do so. Am I able to take the car and hand it back to the garage to clear the finance in my name if she refuses to give me it back?
