Title

Asked by Jun 05, 2017 at 01:06 PM about the 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet Base

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I've found a car that I wanted for a great price
online. The only real problem with the car is the title
the person that is selling it says the previous
owners name is black out because he was going to
scrap the car but decided to sell it to the person
with it now. So I'm not sure how to go about this.
How would I get the car in my name? Should we file
for a new tilte? Is the person selling the car have an
actual ownership over the car?

Do the transaction at your local DMV but I think they will have a huge problem with the blacked out owners name. I would walk away from this one.

I would file for a lost title. I would call your local DMV and see what they require for filing. Also some states don't require a title after so many years. Only a bill of sale and notarized

Only if you want the car.

fishy story, any alterations void the title..

Yes. DMV probably won't accept it.

It is the seller that needs to clear the title, NOT the buyer. They are selling it cheap because no one wants a car with a funky title.
