So, here's scenario for you that I might possibly need some help on in the near future...

So, a bit of news on the old car I traded for my new one. I go to check the mail yesterday and low n' behold find a vehicle registration renewal notice in there for the old one. I get a hold of the seller here on FB (don't have his phone # anymore) and I'm informed that he sold it to someone else without ever registering it in his own name. I call the DMV and the lady tells me to file a transfer notification to which I reply, "I already did that yesterday online". She basically says there is nothing I can do but wait until "whoever" has the vehicle gets a ticket, etc. to fight it off. I'm also told I can take legal action against the guy I sold it to since he sold it w/o it being registered in his name.

Any help in which direction to go next would be greatly appreciated. Thank!

from what i've read and experienced, it would fall on the guy that bought it after you, especially if he didnt register it in the allotted period of time the state gives you... or if you really want to be douchey, file it stolen and get your car back (yeah, quite douchey lol)

I sold an RX-7 roller to someone a few years ago. He then dropped a motor in it and proceeded to blow through toll booths all over Dallas and get involved in a few nonsensical things...and I got tickets.

I kept a bill of sale and that cleared me.

I also learned there that when I sell something, I keep the plates. You get new plates when you register it.

Is there a way that I can take legal action against the guy I sold it to? He's not really willing to cooperate with me. At this point, I don't mind being a jerk because if that car is involved in a hit & run, a burglary, etc. then I would possibly have to go through a lot of bureaucracy to get all that crap cleared up. I'd really appreciate some help on this matter if anyone could help. Thanks!
