Hello, I purchased a vehical with a signed bill of sale dated on Fed 2 2008. I have a personal loan to buy the vehical that i paid the seller with (so it was done by a loan check).
Now it is Jan 31 2009 and still the seller with holds the title and has not and will not give it to us, claiming that he pawned it before he sold it to us and can’t get it. I have a clear bill of sale saying that he agreed to sell us the vehical for 3500, and I have paid him by the check for 3500 dollars, so legally don’t I have the right to the title?
What legal action can I take to get the title?
Re: Car Sales
Not if the seller has pawned the title and has not paid the loan. He did not have the right to sell the car to you if that is the case. This was one of the many risks you took by not getting the title when you bought the car. At this point, your best option might be to pursue the seller for the money you paid.
