Buying an unregistered car in Poland?

1 Apr 2016 #1
Hi, Having seen several good value-4-money,unregistered vehicles on-line,in Poland, I am curious what are the pitfalls of buying an unregistered car from a dealer. Some of the opinions I have heard do not bode well for doing that. Are there any mitigating circumstances where buying a car like this may be ok, after all? What are the telltale signs of doom? Thank you, Sylvio

You could read a hundred books on this subject and still not be suitably prepared to avoid being fleeced. So I would say go to view a car with someone in the industry. Essentially if the car is not on the dealers books, you will be technically buying the car from the original German, French or Italian owner, or from wherever the car has been imported. Thousands of people do it every week, but you can understand the legal implications here.

I have no idea what about the other countries, but you will not be able to register in Poland a car that has been already deregistered in Poland. If a car gets deregistered it must be either sold abroad (it's sale is the base for the deregistration), or disassembled by a certified station.

What does it mran that "the car is not on the dealers books"? Does it mean that the dealer is not the last owner?

Yes, often car are advertised as sprowadzone or do oplat. If they say oplacone gotowe do rejestracji then thats different. But you should still check that the vat has been paid, you can do this at the urzad skarbowy if you ask nicely (since its not yet your car they dont often want to help initially).
