My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Ohio, I purchased a brand new 2005 suzuki motorcycle at $6900 financed by HSBC or HFC,LLC in the year 2005. In Jan. 2009 I filed BK chp.7, discharge date cert. 5/2009. I entered the debt balance of 1700.00 into my BK, and my attorney said a representative from the Lending company need to attend on the Bk court date to contest or pickup the bike. well no one showed from HSBC or HFC nor did they come to pick up the motorcycle. I have registered it and full coverage insurance each and every year up to 12/2016. My husband Job transferred the family from California to Ohio which is where we reside now. and every since the move I haven't been able to register it because Ohio BMV says that I need the title or bill-of-sale to register it, and Im still paying $139.00 a year to keep it insured, its in the storage right now.
Can the original purchase contract from 2005 be considered the bill-of-sale.
