charged for brother’s towing bill
April of this year I bought a new car and gave my old car to my father. He then gave the car to my brother. For this transaction I signed the title and registration and gave it to my father. He then gave the car to my brother without submitting the title or registration to the DMV. So, the car remained in my name without my knowledge.
On July 28th the car was towed and impounded at a towing company. My brother was able to locate the towed car and was informed he had a $300+ bill that he could not pay – he then abondoned the car there. A $30 daily storage fee has accumulated since. On September 28th a bill was sent to me at my old address – this was the first and only attempt that the towing Co. made to contact me. I have recently moved and just recieved the bill today. The current charges stand at $2600.
I have talked to my brother and he has lost the title. I believe, though, that I can get him to sign a bill of sale.
Will a bill of sale transfer responsibility to my brother? I want to stop the $30/day fee, what is the best way to do this? Is the towing company entitled to the entire amount of the bill even though they have made little effort to contact anyone?
Thank you for your help,
