my wife's car was stolen, and has since been recovered. does anybody know if there is a "standard" obligation for insurance companies (who haven't paid out any settlement to us or anything, so its still our car), to restore things to how they were?
for example, the plates have been changed, with road tax and mot etc on the new plates.
so now its recovered, do they have to make sure its "road legal" like it was when it was stolen? the main concern is the MOT - which has expired since it was stolen anyway - but surely the minute I go to collect the car from the insurance companys storage pen, it's not actually legal for me to drive it home as a result... is that my problem? or theirs...?
or is it like most things, something thats different according to which insurance company you use... cheers for any input.
