    Posted: 14/February/2019 at 22:52
My daughters boyfriends mum gave her the money to buy a new car 4 years ago. They recently broke up and the car issue is turning sour. There was no written agreement and the car is registered in my daughters name. neither of them have any idea what is really outstanding as only dodgy receipts kept. She is insisting my daughter just keeps making payments with no real idea of an end date.
I have been asked to step in to assist although her boyfriends mum wont even answer the phone. She has threatened my daughter with legal action?

I presume that she lent her the money to purchase a car, is that correct?

If so and the requirement was that she repay this loan by installments, then she should keep making the repayments. However both parties should be keeping records as to payments made and amount remaining outstanding.

Daughter should write to her (yes write, not text or phone) and advise that she will maintain the repayments but she requires full details of payments made and the amount still outstanding.

If you're just chasing information re the car loan, I would suggest doing a PPSR search on the car to identify the lender, then contact the lender to determine the balance of the loan.

Jimmy, if you read the question you would see that this was a private loan, the boyfriends mother gave her the money. No search is going to reveal any details of a private loan.

Appreciate the feedback Joe, don't really appreciate the hostility when I'm only trying to help. Cheers.
