Default Finance check - cars

Hi all

Have pretty much agreed to buy a car from a guy here in Dubai. He's leaving on Tuesday and the car he is selling is in great condition. Serviced up, looked after and he says no finance attached to it - he bought for cash in Qatar 18 months ago. Easy enough to check in the UK but how do you do it here??? he seems like a very normal family man and has clearly looked after the car but am I expected to hand over AED 55,000 and hope??? Any advice (quickly) gratefully received!!!

don't give him the cash until the transfer is made at the Licensing Department, they check to see if there is outstanding debt on the vehicle.

it does say on the registration card if there is finance against the car but it is in Arabic. Good luck. Have you got insurance sorted out?

well you won't be able to register the car in your name until you produce the Insurance certificate. Try Royal Sun Alliance, we are with them.

as BC says he won't be able to de-register the car and re-register in your name until the finance is cleared. The owner has effectively given a mortgage to the bank on the title of the car.

for insurance try Royal Sun Alliance or Oman Insurance. you will need your insurance Docs to register the car

if you cant get decent insurance in time, you can always buy the crappy insurance down at the registration dept and swap it over at a later date.
