EXCLUSIVE by Wendy Williams
A FORMER BBC scriptwriter has been forced to denounce an expat who bought her car but failed to change the name of ownership leaving her paying the bills.
Adrienne Conway – who wrote the TV series Streets Apart – sold her blue Seat Ibiza to Terence Wood in January 2008 for 950 euros believing he wanted it for spare parts.
But Conway (pictured), who lives in San Pedro, claims Wood has been illegally driving the vehicle and speeding in her name while she is left paying the taxes and fines.
“I keep getting speeding fines, in addition to the tax and I have now had to declare the car off road,” explained Adrienne.
She claims Wood, 54 – who lives in Mijas and runs a website www.relocatetospain.com – was supposed to register the car and bring the receipt plus the new ITV.
He was also meant to return the green card to her gestor, who would have re-registered the car. “It has been going on for four years now and he is always full of excuses.”
When contacted by the Olive Press, Wood, 54, claimed he knew nothing about a denuncia.
But he admitted when he went to the gestoria to transfer it into his name ‘it was apparently never completed due to their incompetence’.
He said: “In fact, I hadn’t got a clue until Adrienne contacted me three years later about the speeding fines.
“I really don’t know why she didn’t tell me sooner, I mean who pays tax for someone else?
“The whole situation is absolutely ridiculous and I have just scrapped the car rather than have the headache of all this.”
