Customer Question

Loving a jeep in North Dakota, no title, says it came with a house he bought, was supposed to get power of attorney for the title, never got it, he is tired of the wait so wants to sell, I want it but I need to title it, NDHP judges can't help with lost titles, what can I do?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Buying a jeep
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Don't believe so, it is from Michigan where the home seller lived and died before he could send title
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Can't think of any thing

The home buyer would need to file a declaratory judgment action and seek a DISTRICT court order asking that the jeep be titled in name. See this law. He will need to join the home seller's estate in the suit. If the home seller's estate does not contest the matter, then the judge will issue an order titling the jeep in the buyer's name. Then, he can sell it to you.

Here is a sample complaint to use as a go-by.
