If you are buying a car from us we automatically check all our used vehicles to make sure there is no finance or other charges registered against the vehicles we sell, but before you consider buying a Portuguese car from someone else we are offering a service to check the vehicle for you.
There is no HPI or Equifax system in Portugal as such you have to physically go to the relevant government office with the registration number to have the vehicle checked and they provide a print out with owner information and any debts or problems registered to the vehicle or let you know if the vehicle is "clean".
In Portugal if someone does not pay their income tax or any other debt the authorities can put a charge against a car to stop the owner from selling the vehicle but many people pay for cars first and realise the problem when it is too late !! Especially if you manage to find a Portuguese car in UK bring it here only to find out the car belongs to someone else.
We offer a service to do this for you at a cost of €50 which is a small amount to pay for peace of mind or stop you buying a car with problems!
This service is only available during work days and is not possible on Portuguese holidays as mentioned earlier we have to go to the office to get the information for you.
If you Require this service please pay €50 by PayPal with registration number to firstname.lastname@example.org we also need your email address so we can scan and send the information back to you. We will have the information within 24hrs.
Please note this service is for financial information only and is not a check for any accidents the vehicle may have had.
