What are the Ohio laws governing the length of time a buyer has to return an automobile to the dealership if the buyer cannot secure insurance on the vehicle?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Florida
Auto was purchased in my husbands name(Florida resident)for my son's use (Michigan resident). If only my husbands name is XX XXX title, FL must license and register it but no FL agency will insure it if it is in Michigan. We cannot get my sons name on the title because the finance company will not allow it since he is not on the loan. Michigan cannot register, license nor insure it without my sons name on the title. The car dealer is giving us a hard time about returning the vehicle.
Hello and welcome,Generally there is no right to rescind a purchase agreement involving an automobile unless there is a provision in the contract permitting rescission if certain conditions are not met.Insuring a vehicle is normally the sole responsibility of the buyer and the seller would not typically have any obligation to permit them to return the vehicle if they are unable to ensure it.The owner of the vehicle may need to transfer ownership to someone else or add someone else's name to the title in order to obtain insurance. That would not normally involve the seller at all and the seller would be under no obligation to accommodate the buyer in obtaining insurance typically. I'm sorry.
