Sorn fine, who's responsible?
If the tax ran out on a vehicle at the beginning of the month. That vehicle was then bought halfway through the month, who's responsibility would it be for the sorn fine? The previous owner as the tax ran out whilst he had it or the new owner for being stupid for not noticing it had not been sorned when he purchased it?

They need to register it. the correct procedure for purchasing a car that's not taxed is to go to the post office straight away with the registration docs and either SORN the car as the new owner or tax it, either way the post office won't return the registration docs and will send them to the DVLA to be updated.
