Me and my other half split up a few weeks ago.

He has left a road legal quad bike on my lawn and is refusing to collect it. I do not want it in my garden and have told him I will wheel it onto the road.

The quad has no tax or mot, would there be any legal issue for me if I wheel it to the road (into a parking space on the highway).

I have told him that I will do it if he won't get it collected and it could be towed/ he could get fined. But I don't want to end up screwing myself over.

it's not your bike? kids must of moved it in the night??
cheeky little mites . .. can't leave anything now adays . ...
#2
who ever the quad is registered to would get the fine and it could be seized and crushed for no tax insurance or mot
#3
Leave it where it is and safe yourself the hassle
Write to them giving them 14 days to move it or you will dispose of it

It's a quadzilla something, he got it for £1600 over a year ago and it has just sat there unused ever since. It is in his name so I can't really sell it, I did initially say I would and he threatened with calling the police for theft.i have the keys and v5 and have asked, near begged him to take it away but he flits between ignoring me, avoiding questions or playing games. He has already promised to pick it up twice and then not turned up. I'm just fed up with his crap and this quad is the last thing to sort so I don't want it to be my problem anymore

It it helps I had a battle on my hand with a neighbour dictating where I should park on there street. Little did he know I discovered his car he left in the street had no road tax. After speaking to the police who couldn't help told me the vehicle had insurance and MOT. After numerous emails sent to Environmental Health they finally picked it up and crushed it.

So I would suggest you should play along the lines of the quad bike is abandoned.

Ah they're crap lol its just a cheap one, thought it might of been a good one.
If you leave it on the road it'll get nicked more than likely, I'm shocked nobodys tried taking it from your garden unless its not an easy target. Do police often drive past? If not then it won't get taken for no tax.
I'm male but if I was in your shoes I'd just leave it on the road and so be it

Easiest thing to do is just ask one of his friends to come and collect it.

It's bolted to the floor with a lock thing and my house is down an alley so not really in view. I'm aware it will likely get nicked/towed/ticketed but it isn't really my problem.

As long as I don't get in trouble for putting it there, is there any requirement for notice I have to give him. I told him I wanted it removed over 3 weeks ago

Nope nothing to do with you, you're not the registered keeper so it's his problem what ever happens to it. He shouldn't of been an idiot and left it when you gave him plenty notice you want it gone.

My friend had a similar issue with her ex, he wouldn't shift his car Audi. She had the v5 and keys, so send the v5 to the DVLA with a note saying he gave her it to pay a debt but never signed it, not sure if she got lucky but they sent her a new v5 with her being the new keeper and she sold the car on Gumtree lol

don't do this, the registered keeper and the legal owner are entirely different things

sell it for a fiver

Put it up for sale on gumtree for a cheap price with his details of contact .. Mobile number etc .. A few calls will spur him on to shift it . Or inform him as of a certain date you will charge storage for it at so much a day . Depends how much you actually dislike the guy.

Ok so last night I had a google a bit and it looks like only the police/local authority can move a vehicle from private land or public land so if I was to move it and it gets nicked I could be liable. But if I was to sell it and forward him any monies minus any fees then it should be ok. So it's going on eBay tonight and I have told him I will minus a disposal fee and storage fees.
And yes I dislike this guy, I won't go into details as that's a bit Jeremy Kyle, but he gave me 5 years of hell and I'm sure that the refusal to take the quad is his final piece of control over me.

Gumtree maybe better with his phone number as contact .. May spur him on to shift it

If it's registered to him and is on your property I think you have a fair right to move it failing contact with him to collect it with a reasonable timescale.

after that, it's anyone guess which police/dvla will come get it when it **** off ypur neighbours for being parked on the road.

youths will have it before the dvla/police will...

I would have thought that knowing I will make money from it would encourage him more to move it. He always seemed to have an issue with money and accused me of being after everything he had, despite him never contributing in 5 years despite earning almost triple what I did (except last Christmas when he had a month off, he gave me £50 towards food etc for the whole time).

He isn't going to move it, that will require effort from him. It's hardly his pride and joy, he got it over a year ago and rode it for about 10 minutes around a car park the day he got it and it hasn't moved since.
It has killed my grass and been an eyesore and in my way.

you need to give him 14 days notice that on such and such date you are selling it.
you need to send recorded and keep a copy.
you than need to keep the proceeds of sale infinitely for him.
if you don't follow these legal necessities you can be done for theft regardless of it being on your land.

I have given him notice that I would get rid of it, this has been via text as I don't have a postal address for him.

I will bank transfer him any monies minus storage and disposal fee and have advised this too.

From what I have read up on, that is acceptable in the eyes of the law and at worst would be a civil matter as I have attempted to get him to take it and passed on any monies minus costs so have not stolen anything?
