So I bought a second hand car from a guy. They told me they would let me know when the notice of disposal is submitted. After a day, he told me that the car is still registered to its previous owner whom they tried to call to ask for the notice of disposal but was unsuccessful.
So I am unable to transfer for rego to my name as the car isn't registered to the seller so he cannot lodge notice of disposal. The seller has proof of purchase/receipt from the previous owner and that's about it. I checked the car history online and it isn't reported stolen or anything.
Is there a way to complete the transfer of registration without notice of disposal?
