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,
Do I have to take a car back when breaks down ? They signed a sold ”AS IS” no promises made bill of sale. I made noverbal assurances on the reliability of the car.
Private Party Auto Sale
I purchased a vehicle from a private party seller. I signed a bill of sale buying it as is and that I would be responsible for any expenses after the purchase date. After owning it I discovered that it had been in an accident, had a bent frame, and was never disclosed to me. The title is clean and so is the carfax. If I prove that the seller had knowledge of this and didn’t disclose it to me at the sale, do I have a case?
Earnest Monies on a Car
I went to a little off the side of the road place that has their auto dealers license and found a car. I did not sign a single piece of paper on the car. The only thing that was signed was the paper work for the financing company not the dealer or the car. While I was waiting for a few days to see if–name removed–loan would be approved I put 250.00 down and they wrote–a receipt stating that if the financing company denied the application they would refund the money. Well when the guy from the car place went into the financing place he could not provide a bill of sale from the place he supposedly got the car from, could not provide a title, asboluetly nothing, he forged signatures and told them that i had the car in possesion. I never took the car or ever had the car. So the financing company denied the application. I went to get 250.00 back and now they say by law that they can keep it. I never signed a single piece of paper on the car. Can I get–name removed–money back and where would I find the information to prove to the guy he has to giveback all of the money?
If I don’t have a rental agreement can I evict someone in my home that has not paid rent for 2 months?
