This answer was rated:

I have been storing a friend/customer's vehicles (5) for over 5 years with no formal agreement, just a verbal agreement. The vehicles are in an ex-spouse's name who is now incarcerated. I have not received payment for the storage fees in over 2 years. What are my options for obtaining title of the vehicles in my possession. The fees are over $25,000. These are high end vehicles and in total value are worth more than the fees owed. I am located in CA.
I'm sorry to hear this.

You would have to conduct what is called a lien sale.

The process is a little bit complicated, but instructions and links to the forms you will need are posted at

I hope this information is helpful.
