Re: Getting Title Without Definitive Proof of Ownership
If your name is not on the DMV records as the registered owner then you can't get a replacement title. DUH!!!
Its not their fault that someone bought and paid for a car, accepted an unsigned certificate of title and then lost it.
You have to get a hold of the registered owner. Once you do that, he/she can either request a new title and sign it off to you or go to the DMV and take care of the transfer of ownership there.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
