My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: ca
I recently bought a car with no title and plates. The seller was telling me that he got the car from his friend and he doesnt know where the pink slip is at. He gave me the vehicle/vessel transfer and reassignment form telling me that this is what i only need to register the car at the dmv. I had no clue on what paper work you needed to register and transfer a car. The seller lied to me telling me the car was clean, i recently looked the car up on car fax and it was salvaged. I did not go to the dmv to get a background check on the car and im afraid that it is stolen. I have a picture of his Drivers License and address. I called him and told him if i cant register the car tomorrow at the dmv and if the car is stolen, i will report him to the police. Do you think i can get my money back? Will this bring him to court?
