    My ex de facto and I obtained a joint car loan to purchase a car. She has since left and taken the car with her. I would like the car back so I may sell it to pay out the loan, so as to avoid any damage to credit history should she decide to default. Where do I stand in this area? Solicitors, repo men, sheriff?

    Who is the registered owner?
    And, separately, is the loan in both names?

    My ex partner is the registered owner. I just want to be free of liability. This only happened a few days ago. I haven't had time to ring the finance company. I work shift work for a living.

    Start by calling the finance company.
