Hello how are you
Where are you located?
Laws vary depending on location
I'm in NC
My husband who is deployed now sold his bike and we did an over the phone transfer of funds. She paid directly towards his loan. I dont know what the law is on if that means she is now the owner. When they drove away with it, I received a phone call from her later on that day saying that there was something not right with the 5th and 6th gears. I asked my husband about it and he said he had that problem once before but it didnt persist. he took it to the mechanic amd he said eventually the transmission needed to be worked on. When they took it to that mechanic he told them they needed a new transmission, really they only needed to fix those gears. we felt responsible because he did not mention that. He drove it for a year no problems. we offered to pay for the transmission fix and only that. The buyer said if anything came up like another serious problem that we were liable to pay for it and we didnt agree with that. Since their name is XXXXX XXXXX the title they dont want to sign for it but since they paid for the loan directly it lifted the lien and they are now resposible. Thats what I was told by USAA that is the bank we did the transfer with. I need to know the laws and see if we are responsible or should worry because they are sueing us for everything
