It is the Buyers responsibility to inform their Insurance Company of any Registration changes
The Buyer of any registration mark must provide full payment before any transfer will be submitted to the Dept. of Transport, or its agents. This payment must be within 14 calendar days of securing the registration by initial part payment, or the transaction will be deemed a failure, and thus lose the Buyer their part payment. Receiving vehicle documents must be received within a maximum 28 days from payment of part payment. The Buyer is responsible for the payment of the current DVLA transfer or retention fee, and for producing the documentation of the vehicle receiving the mark. If a mark is held on a Retention/Entitlement Certificate, the Seller must provide the un-expired certificate to be sent to the DVLA for amendment, at a cost to the Seller.
Under Distance Selling Regulations 2000, section 13 (c)., if the Buyer does not proceed with the transfer of the registration mark after paying the part /full payment or fails to supply the full documentation required by DVLA, then no part of this payment is refundable, whatsoever, as the service period commences immediately. Ordered numbers cannot be refunded nor exchanged, nor will any cancellations be accepted. The acceptance of our terms on any internet order will also bind the person placing the order to commit to the purchase, and provide full payment as agreed when forming the contract. If this is not authorised by the internet order it will need to be provided by alternative methods, as the contract to purchase is formed by entering full purchase details.
If the transaction fails due to no fault of the Buyer then he/she will receive a full refund of all amounts paid only. This will be in the form of payment received be it cash, cheque or credit/debit card.
The issue of a new V5C bearing the new registration number shall be conclusive proof that a successful transfer has taken place for both Buyer and Seller.
The Secretary of State for Transport or their agents, the DVLA (as keeper of their records), may, at any time, revoke the right to a registration mark for whatever reason. In this highly unlikely event W.R. cannot be held responsible. W.R. is also not liable for any change in Government legislation or its subsequent consequences.
The Seller of the registration mark appoints Western Registrations (Hereupon referred to as W.R.) to advertise and sell the right to transfer the registration mark to a buyer that W.R. shall find, at the price indicated in the written quotation provided. W.R. will bear the cost of all advertising and marketing of the plate, subject to the Seller adhering to the terms and conditions of their contracted agreement, and thus at no cost to the seller.
The value payable to the Seller of the mark will be that already agreed in the quotation previously issued or any lower amount agreed with the Seller prior to sale, by letter, telephone, facsimile or email.
The Agency contract of W.R. is valid indefinitely. It may ONLY be cancelled by the Seller, upon Written notice by the Seller to W.R. by RECORDED DELIVERY POST. Facsimile, telephone or email cancellation will NOT be accepted.
A Buyer shall be deemed to be found, once W.R. have received a part payment by cash, cheque or credit card from an intending Purchaser of the mark, or issued a Proforma Invoice. W.R. is under no obligation to check availability before agreeing a sale with a prospective purchaser. The written contract is confirmation of availability and of the authority of W.R. to take payment from a prospective purchaser and/or issue a proforma invoice.
If a buyer is found and the number not available and the contract has not cancelled in writing by the Seller, the Seller shall be liable to pay W.R. their costs. This will be to cover advertising and other expenses incurred in selling a registration number, and to replace the lost sales commission on the plate that would have been made.
The Seller shall not incur any liability for any commission to W.R. once the cancellation notice has been received, prior to any buyer being found. Cancellations cannot be back dated.
The seller must return all valid paperwork, including Current V5C and MOT Certificate and original tax disc, where applicable, as requested upon procurement of any sale within a maximum of ten days of notification of a sale. If a sale falls through due to the failure to provide valid paperwork within this time scale then the seller will again be responsible to replace the lost sales commission on the sale and costs incurred.
The Seller will be responsible for presenting the donor vehicle (the one that carries the mark being sold), to their Department of Transport's Local Licensing Office, if so required, at their own expense. The Seller will also be responsible for affixing the replacement registration mark after approval by the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency (Hereafter referred to as DVLA), and for the cost of any acrylic number plates required.
Full payment for a registration purchased from a Seller for W.R. stock, or sold on a commission basis to a third party, will only be released upon final approval of the replacement V5C Registration Document by the DVLA.
W.R. shall be responsible for the administering of documentation required to transfer the registration mark and will process all papers as quickly as is possible, but will NOT be liable for any losses howsoever caused due to any delay otherwise than on the part of W.R… If the DVLA revokes the right to a registration mark, W.R. will not be liable for any damages, interest or other expense incurred whatsoever.
