    Default New Owner Will Not Transfer Title

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Kentucky.

    I sold a vehicle to an individual in state. Due to our schedules we were unable to do the transaction at the transfer office. I signed the title over and he took possession of the vehicle. As of last Friday the vehicle is still in my name. Is there any action I can take to remove the vehicle from my name? I have been patient but he will not respond to my attempts to contact him or come to a solution in this problem. Friends say to apply for a new title and then junk it... Is that ok to do?

    Default Re: New Owner Will Not Transfer Title

    The state instructs,
    Quote Quoting Incomplete Transfer
    When an individual sells a vehicle, whether to another individual, dealership, or scrap yard, the title is not transferred out of the seller's name until the buyer goes to their County Clerk's office to apply for a title in their name.

    It is common for a seller to receive an uninsured notice for a vehicle that has been sold. This is because the buyer has not completed the transfer of ownership, which is required by Kentucky law to take place within fifteen (15) days of the purchase. The Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing will show the seller as owner of the vehicle until the buyer makes application for title. This situation is known as an incomplete transfer and can be taken care of at the County Clerk's office.
    So, go to the County Clerk's office and see what they can do for you.
