HOW TO SECURING THE RELEASE OF A SEIZED OR IMPOUNDED VEHICLE

Both the Form 3708 seizure notice, issued to the driver by the seizing officer, and any subsequent notice letter, issued by the Pound staff state that the vehicle must be reclaimed within 7 working days. However in accordance with Section 7(2) (a) of The Regulations, the police cannot dispose of a vehicle until at least fourteen 14 days have elapsed, starting from the date of seizure.

The correct documents you need to collect your vehicle

Motors Recovery insurance policy allows us to recover and transport third party vehicles on behalf of their owners from Charlton police pound, SE7 7HY, for accident , PG9 or stolen vehicle .

Normally the owner or registered keeper of the impounded vehicle is required to attend the pound in person to reclaim their vehicle, in accordance with Regulation 5 of The Road Traffic Act 1988 (Retention and Disposal of Seized Motors Vehicle) Regulations 2005.
By attending the pound in person the pound staff can meet their statutory duty to establish ownership, driving entitlement and the validity of any motor insurance policy.

This statutory requirement for the owner or registered keeper to attend in person can be waived if there is a valid reason why they cannot comply, for example if they are:
  • In custody.
  • Out of the country ( a copy of flight tickets )
  • In hospital.
  • Unable to travel to the pound due to age, sickness, injury, immobility or disability.
  • Unable to attend the pound due to other exceptional or compassionate circumstances, which will be considered on their merit.

Under these circumstances a third party may be permitted to reclaim the Vehicle on behalf of the registered keeper or owner. The third party must provide:
  • Some documentary evidence that the registered keeper is unable to attend in person for a valid reason, as listed above. The pound staff must be satisfied that the registered keeper or owner is not trying to avoid attending in person due to a driving disqualification, or because they are of interest to the police.
  • A signed letter of authority from the registered keeper of owner, permitting the third party to reclaim the vehicle in their behalf.
  • Proof of identity and signature from the registered keeper or owner.
  • Valid proof of ownership, a valid certificate of motor insurance and a valid driving licence for the policyholder and the third party.
  • The motor insurance policy must be valid for the third party to reclaim an impounded vehicle on behalf of the registered keeper or owner. Confirmation from the insurer may be required.

It's the responsibility of the registered owner/keeper to produce all documentation in all circumstances.
Proof of identity – valid photo ID
This means either:
  • driving licence
  • passport
  • national identity card
  • identity card issued by a reputable UK body, for example, HMRC or UK Visas and Immigration

Proof of ownership
You must produce documents to satisfy that you were the registered owner/keeper of the vehicle at the point of recovery or seizure.
There are two options available:
Option 1
You must produce these documents:
• the current log book (V5C) in the name of the owner
• proof of address to match the address on the V5C

Option 2 (new owner of the impounded or seized vehicle)
You must produce these documents:
  • the new keeper supplement/slip from the current V5C in the name of the owner, unaltered and dated within two months of being presented
  • proof of address to match the address on the V5C
  • a reputable and verifiable bill of sale, which must be dated within two months of being presented (this must not be handwritten or altered in any way)
Items which should be considered in a bill of sale:
  1. Date of sale.
  2. Vehicle registration number and ideally vehicle make and model.
  3. Sellers name and address and business details if applicable.
  4. Buyers name, address and business details if applicable.
  5. Signatures from both parties.
  6. The amount paid.

  • a completed application for a vehicle registration certificate (V62)

The V62 and the V5C slip must be given to the pound staff, along with an envelope and a stamp. These documents will be sent to the DVLA to make sure the vehicle is properly registered in your name.

There is nothing to prohibit the transfer of ownership or Registered Keeper status of impounded vehicles
whilst in police custody. Front Counter Staff must be satisfied with the proof of ownership produced before ownership can be transferred, .so documents must be checked to the same standards as detailed previously.

Motor trader
If a vehicle ‘in trade’ has been driven on a road without valid trade licence plates displayed at the point of being impounded in Charlton compound, it must be registered to an owner immediately. Please note, you must have a set of valid trade plates to display on the vehicle if it's being driven away.
Where the valid trade plates were being used the following documents must be produced:
  • the current log book (V5C) unaltered with the sale/transfer to motor trader slip detached
  • a reputable and verifiable bill of sale (this must not be handwritten) or trade book
In all other circumstances the motor trader must comply with the two options above.

If you're a registered company and own or insure the impounded vehicle
In these circumstances the person collecting the vehicle must produce a letter of authority from the company registered on the V5C, or if hired under an official agreement then a hire agreement from the company registered on the V5C.
A letter of authority must be:
  • reputable and verifiable
  • include the company number
  • signed by an appropriate official from the company
  • detail the individual collecting or Motors Recovery on your bahalf.
  • dated within two months of being presented
A hire agreement must be:
  • reputable and verifiable
  • in the name of the individual or company hiring
  • dated before the vehicle was impounded
