I have been trying to sell my car for the last couple of weeks to no avail. I have been advertising at regular price then lower price, now down to what would give someone a wonderful car. I need to have a car for my job as it is part of my job to drive to meetings. My car is probably worth at least £2.5k but as it is an import and there is no parkers guide price for it, I can't even guess what an auction price would be.
My main query is if I can't sell it and the OR decides to take the car, how long would it be before they would provide me with enough to get a new car. I don't start my new job until Monday, am hoping to go and petition on Friday this week and there is no bus route that will take me to my new job.
If I can sell it, and used some to buy a cheap runaround, could I use any of the proceeds to pay for the bankruptcy? If I can't, then there really seems little point in pursuing the sale route at the moment, just let the OR take it and rely on borrowing someone's car until mine is sold.
We are having a valuer come round today to do a proper valuation. We have been asked why we want the valuation and we just said it was for our own personal use. Has anyone had a valuation where the valuer knew it was for bankruptcy purposes and has it made any difference? I know valuers should be impartial but you just don't know.
