I don't know if his name is XXXXX XXXXX title. I have never seen the title. My father passed away a year and a half ago and this is the first my brother and I are hearing of any of this. She sent a redacted copy of the loan agreement and a payment history that begins when my father died, not before. So we are in the dark here. She wants us to sign a NC dept of transportation affidavit of authority to assign title to her.she has filled everything out and this is what line 7 says: That the heirs hereby assign interest in said vehicle to and then her name. So....I don't know anything else.
why would we have to sign an affidavit to assign title to her if he just cosigned a loan? I just don't understand why we're heirs if he just lent her his good credit score? Why wouldn't she just need his death certificate? If he owns the car could we be taxed on inheriting it? Are these too many questions?
Thank you so much. I have just one more thing to ask. My brother and I have no interest in this car. I just want to know the truth. She is defensive. The paperwork had more blacked out lines than a pentagon war document! When I asked her for an unredacted copy of the loan agreement and full payment history she says her bank wants nothing to do with this and all I can get from her are the redacted copies. Why would a bank want nothing to do with this? I don't know what she'll do when I tell her I want a copy of the title too! Oh and by the way, I am not in NC I'm in Georgia. I wouldn't want even an unseen person on the internet thinking I live in that state. Unless you do and then this is awkward. :)
Thank you so much JudgeLaw. You have no idea how much this helps us. And just so you know, I never pronounce the s on the end of Illinois.Susannah Black
