When a person buys a vehicle, it's up to the seller to deliver a copy of the title that the buyer can use to title the car in his name. If the seller doesn't do that, the buyer can sue for a full refund - the sale is not valid if the buyer can't get a good title. And for that reason, no, the buyer does not have to pay to get a copy of the title if the seller provides an invalid title in the first place.
