DVLA should have on record the date of change of registered keeper which may or may not add some insight.

Sorry, but
I own a Car as I was left it in a Will.


States a conclusion drawn too far from the premise.

To acquire ownership under a will
- The testator needs to have died
- the testator needs to own it at death
- the will needs to be probated, and
- the executor needs formally to make the transfer.

Until all four events have occurred, the legatee does not own the car.

Yes agreed. I have asked Executor to deal with the matter and that will get sorted one way or tother. Thats
for all the posters replies which I noted and appreciated.

Happy New Year , and let us hope the handcart wont be coming too soon ,to take us on our trip!!.

Well, He's the only one in a position to ask the original owner what the score is. Somehow I doubt he's be telling though.
