I do not know him but he is prepared to pay the £32k for the car on the understanding that i send the V5C when I get it.
Sounds perfectly reasonable mate. So long as he is happy and you are happy, then all good in my opinion. I've done the same thing in the past without issue. I take it that the car is sporting the original plate and tax disc with original number? If you did the change at your local DVLA office, the turnaround will probably be much swifter. My experience is that the V5 is back with me within 10 days.
