My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Arizona
I bought a car from a gentleman and there is no lein on the title or notification given of a lein and was notarized as such.
Did some work on the vehicle and went to apply for the title in my name 6 weeks later. When I did there was a lein on the vehicle much to my surprise.
Lein is in place by department of economic security which I believe to be food stamps/ child support. How can a notarized title without a lein showing all the sudden have a lein and Im responsible? Any legal ground by me against lein holder? I dont trust the guy i bought it from will have the money if he is not paying child support.
Any help is appreciated.
