Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
You have to return to the storage locker owner who may have a warehouseman's lien on the vehicle, which permits him to sell the vehicle for unpaid storage charges. Most states have warehouseman lien statutes and if he followed the state statute correctly, he may be able to acquire a new title to himself and then transfer it to you. I am fairly certain that there's no way you can get the title to the car in your name without some kind of legal proceedings. That means that your best route might be to use the storage sale as leverage to persuade the title holder to sign it over to you for a small payment.
