Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What do you mean they "Lost the car?" You have the one you bought from them, but one of your trade ins they cannot find but need the title from you? Did they pay you or give you credit at least for the trade in?
Have you filed for a duplicate title yet?
Thank you for your reply.Even though you turned it over to them, if they lost it they would be liable for costs you incurred, but you still have to get the proper title for them I am afraid. They cannot do it. You will have to get the name of the titled owner from DMV to get the process started I am afraid.
