What do I do if my car has no tittle but I'm not the owner of the car

You need to contact your Registry of Motor Vehicles and get a replacement title. It will be in the name of the actual car owner. Then you can have that person transfer the title to you.

Brought a car from a military guy for 1700 dollars he gave me the tittle but it wasn't notarized to him. On the tittle on part A it had another guys name on line one and the guy I brought the car from on line 2 showing that the guy sold it to him but the guy I brought the car from never got the tittle notarized in his name so I let him know to get it notarized when he got it notarized I signed on part B with his name on line 1 and my name on line 2 showing that he sold the car to me so I went to a notary and got it notarized then I went and got insurance on it then I went to the DMV to get tags the lady told me I can't do it that way she said the guy I brought the car from has to get the tittle in his name first for him to be able to sign it over to me so I let the guy I brought the car from know the situation so he sent it off to Raleigh using ups fast mail so it got there the next day ok 2 weeks pass
No sign of the tittle so the guy I brought the car from goes down to Raleigh found out they had it on a holding status because they didn't understand who the car was being signed over to since I signed on part B so the guy I brought the car from told me on the phone that everything was good the tittle is being sent to my address in my name so I waited about 4 days because that's how long he said it would take so I called up to Raleigh they told me there's no tittle being sent to my address with my name on it but there is a letter with the tittle he tried to switch coming in the mail to my address because he didn't want to pay the taxes on the car and the tittle fee and the instant tittle fee so they sent it off to my address on march 25 2013 it was a tittle application including the original tittle. Every since then I've been calling Raleigh DMV spoke to the head lady I still haven't received it in the mail and its been 3 weeks I live in Fayetteville North Carolina Raleigh is only a 1 hour 30 minutes away
The lady told me when I called her Monday if I don't receive the tittle in the mail by Friday call her back. The guy I brought the car from is ignoring my calls and texts because I'm wanting my money back this is my first car what do I do can take him to small claims court or am I screwed
How can I get a tittle

Uhh, then it's not "your car." Who's is it and who has the title? You should probably return the car to the owner or continue to follow the terms of your agreement with them.

Well, Jdw, if you're not the owner, why would you expect to have the title? Am I misunderstanding your question?

Holy cow, Jdw! I thought I was the only one that ever got in messes like this. When you say, "Friday", are you talking about "tomorrow Friday"? You might also ask the head lady at Raleigh DMV what she would recommend you do. I would think she would know a lot about these things. If not, I would consult an attorney on this. I'm not sure what to tell you to do and wouldn't want to tell you the wrong thing, honey.
Report as
Yeah she told me to call her back Friday which is tomorrow to explain what I have to do but if including putting more money into the vehicle I'm not up for that so your right I will be looking for a lawyer because this isn't right at all just got my license saved money to buy a car and this guy pulls this he knew I didn't know to much about cars thanks for your answers

You're welcome, honey. I'm so sorry you've had to go through all of this.

Good Lord thats a mess! Man i hate to say it but you either get lucky and get it from the lady or i know of one thing you can try, im not sure what its called but your local law should know or better your tag office. There is a law that states something to the effect of if something an item of someones on your property, in your possesion for i think 90 days you can file for ownership. It sounds like something that may help since you are getting so much from the original guy and other office. Man! Good Luck i jope that will help you
