I've heard that sometimes cars are "flagged" by the police if they have been connected with criminal activity aledgedly. My son is thinking of buying a car which may or may not be. The present keeper may well be "away" at the moment, hence the reason for the Sale
. Apart from the basics, i.e. is it legally his to sell can i pre empt any trouble that might arise? I realise i'm not going to walk in to my local police station and ask. It will be his first car so looking to prevent hassle. No names or places obviously except that it's the u.k.
