My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Washington
In February we purchased a used vehicle from a dealer in Oregon-we are financing through our own credit union. We received all of the paperwork, went to the DOL and got the new license plates and tabs. In April we received a letter from the DOL saying that the odometer disclosure received was not correct and they needed one from the person that traded in the vehicle to the dealer, along with a power of attorney from that person to the dealer. Without this we could not get the title.
I contacted the dealer and they said they would take care of it. Every time I emailed them they said they were having a difficult time getting in touch with the previous owner. I finally filed a complaint with Oregon attorney general. A week later I got an email from the dealer general manager saying this was the first he had heard of it, he had contacted the previous owner and would get it taken care of. That was about 3 weeks ago.
Yesterday I received a letter from our credit union saying that they needed the vehicle title within 10 days or they would take further action. I am assuming they could call the loan.
Not sure what to do at this point. Any advice would be appreciated.
