Someone on here sold me a car that had a title loan on the car. Title max repoed the car from my driveway. I wrote up bill of sell and specified about no loans or liens and he signed. I also have a witness who signed. What is my legal recourse? Im out hundreds of dollars
oh no ... Sorry you're having this problem.. I think you may have to take the seller to court . Depending on how much you paid for the car it's either. civil or small claims. Did the title indicate there was a lienholder?
You should try and file a police report for theftby fraud. See if that helps get you your money back before you go to court. Cops might just refuse to get involved claiming it's a civil matter but it doesn't hurt to try. The precinct would be where the sale took place.
Ok maybe you aren't understanding. I was interested in a car from a seller here. He claimed to have lost the title. I did a VIN check, title came back clear so i bought the car. I wrote up a bill of sale. SPECIFIED on it that the car was free of loans on the title or liens and if he was the legal owner and seller. I signed, he signed and I had a witness sign. I had the car in my driveway for about a month, until I could go get the title transferred. Before I could do that the cat was repoed from my driveway. I found out the car had a lien on it from TITLEMAX, for a title loan.
I contacted the police, they said i'll have to take him to civil court.
