My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: California. My dad stored his non op car in my grandmaís barn. The property sold and there was an agreement to continue to store the vehicle. My dad passed away. My mom and dadís names are on the title. Last week the car was seen in a driveway in town. After contacting the man in possession of the car, we were told he purchased the car from the property owner.
How can my mom get the car back? The police donít seem to want to help. She reported it stolen. There has been no change in title or registration and no liens. Should she just hire a private repo service to go get it?
