Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies.

I am very sorry for your situation. Can you please tell me:

1) Have you tried asking them for the title?
2) If so, what has their reply been - why are they so late?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

are you in Ill,cook country


Before I answer, it is important for me to know what - if any - reason was given to you for their delay in giving the title?

Or, do they simply ignore you and are not even giving a reason?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not any reason I've know the dealer for over 25 yrs

Okay, thank you.

If the dealer continues to delay and not provide title to the vehicle, someone in your situation may wish to file for what is known as a declaratory judgment in Court under 735 ILCS 5/2-701 et seq. This will ask the Court to have them ORDERED to sign the title over to you.

Often however, a certified letter threatening this will do the trick, as they will fear litigation which may end up costing them even more.

Gentle Reminder: Please use the REPLY button to keep chatting, or RATE my answer when we are finished. Kindly rate my answer as one of the top three faces and then submit, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith. (You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating.)
