My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Texas
What needs to be done to transfer a title in my deceased father's name to myself? Dad died in 2008 and the vehicle in question was last registered in New Mexico. Unfortunately there was no "Transfer on Death" stipulation on the title, and dad's will did not specify anything about the car, although he did intend for me to get it. My former step-mother was the executor of dad's will. She sent me the unsigned title about a year ago. Could she, as the executor, sign the title on his behalf and sign it over to me? From what I have read online, if it has to go through probate channels it could take a very long time. Thank you for any advice.
