When you obtain a vehicle from a private party, you will need the following items to complete your car title transfer and registration:
You AND the vehicle owner should go together to a FL tax collector's office to avoid any complications when completing the DMV title transfer.
If the above was complied with, then you appear to be the title owner and should have the power to repossess the car at your will.
Either way, I would recommend consulting a local attorney to guide you through this process and protect your interests.
