You could file for a bonded title, however, you run the risk of losing your vehicle for 3 years once filed should the original owner produce his title and claim ownership. (keep your bill of sale)

Unless you know his/her first & last name, then you could probably find "another way" to get their signature. :icon_bigg

You have to have a copy of the drivers license for whomever is named on the title.

i have a question i went to see a bike and was great but. when the seller showed me the title it had signatures all over

buyer seller and buyer again

and the guy that was selling it wasnt in the tittle

i tought the best way was, get him to get the title on his name

or is there an easier way after " if" i buy it to put it in my name?

They will only give the registered owner of the bike a copy of the title. As someone said, you pretty much will need to get a bonded title.


Question for you though; Is the guy you bought the bike from the one being uncooperative or is it titled in someone elses name? Depending on the answer you may have some options.

Amber,
There MAY be a way to still get it titled. It would depend on whether the title is in the sellers name or not. Give me or SuzAnne a call at the shop and we can better advise you.

In general, if the title isn't in the persons name who is selling the bike, I typically advise against making the purchase. Over the years I've seen some real nightmares. Some can be taken care of, while others can be a real headache.

File a lien on it. If you don't know how, a lien service can do it for you. Last time I did one it cost me around $85- for the lien service.
