    Default How to Transfer Vehicle Title Without a Bill of Sale

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Florida

    Hello,

    I'm in a bit of a bind regarding a car I purchased a while back on Craigslist in Georgia. I purchased the car and had a bill of sale and the title signed by the title holder. I didn't get to transfer the title into my name right away, and have since misplaced the bill of sale, though I still have the title. I took it to the DMV and they explained that without an original bill of sale, they cannot transfer the title, even though the title is signed by the original holder and myself. I no longer know how to contact the previous owner. What options do I have? Does Florida have bonded titles? What else can I do?

    Dazed and confused,

    V

    Why not?

    People generally aren't that hard to find, if you have their name and a past address or even general vicinity of where they once lived.

    A receipt does not appear to be required by Florida Statutes, Sec. 319.22. Is the issue that they want proof of what you paid for the car, to assess sales tax?
