Re: How to Go About Getting a Title for an Impounded Car
Ok, I haven't read your other posts. So, I'm gonna try to summarize what I think you are saying and is relevant.
Your father owned a tow company and left an impounded car on your property. Your father verbally gave you the car but there is no documentation of that. The tow company is now out of business and you have no means to contact your father. You now want to get the title so you can sell the car. Is all that correct?
If so, here are the problems I see. First, did your father (who you paint in a pretty disreputable light) acquire the car legally? Since he left it on your property, rather than an established tow yard, I'm wondering if the owner of the car was provided with the proper legal avenues to reclaim the car! You might want to check with the local police department to make sure the car isn't reported stolen!
Provided there are no issues regarding the first point, you will need to apply for the title as an abandoned vehicle. That is a cumbersome process that varies in the specific procedure from state to state and I cannot tell you what the procedure is for KY. If your father already obtained a title, you will have to show documentation that you have made a good faith effort to contact him. You will need to find out how to show that documentation from the KY DMV (or whatever KY calls it). If he didn't, then you will need to make a good faith effort to contact the titled owner. So, the next step is going to be contacting the DMV and finding out who the owner is!
After that, it is going to be a lengthy but likely fairly straightforward process. The DMV should be able to provide you with all the requisite paperwork.
