I owned a car about 8 years ago, which I sold. The buyer did not register teh car, and apparently was in an accident with a rent a car. I recd. today, a collections notice from the rent a car representative (a contingency collection agency) for a 5 figure sum. I have not heard from them before. They seem to think that because the car was registered to me, I am liable for the damages to the rent a car property. Apparently the guy who bought the car was uninsured.
Am I liable for this? Is a 7 year period outside the sol? The accident was in tx, but I do not live there. What are my obligations here?
