Re: Sold Motorycle in TX, Buyer Resold Without Transferring Title to His Name
I would have to do a bit of research but grabbing Michigans laws and applying to the situation; you could not transfer the title to the 3rd party if the 2nd parties name is on the title. Only a licensed dealer can pass title to a subsequent party without first obtaining a new title in the current owners name.
I believe Tx acts the same.
So, did you file the vehicle transfer notification with the Texas DOT like you aer supposed to?
I believe the 2nd party is going to have to file for a new title in his name and then transfer that title to the 3rd party. If you filed the vehicle transfer notification, you are out of the pic and should stay that way. That is the one thing in livefasts posts that is correct and important. If the 2nd party did anything illegal while in possession of the bike using the bike, by trying to bypass the 2nd party, it puts in in place as owner during the time whatever incident it was took place.
Get out of the picture.
