Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Is the vehicle able to be lawfully used in the state that you purchased it from without a VIN, or did it have to be registered? Or you do not know?
my question to you is, is it legal in the state of Georgia to sell a vehicle without a VIN plate, from my knowledge, it is not. You are asking the same question that I am asking
Oh, I am sorry, I misunderstood. Some vehicles, especially small hitches, can be sold without a VIN plate. I am researching whether this is permitted or not.
This is a 48 foot medical coach
Then that's a completely different issue.
That type of a coach cannot be sold without a VIN
that is what I was told
You can contact your local DMV and ask if you can register it with them since you did not obtain the VIN form the seller
But otherwise this sale can be reversed
I don't want to register it, I just want my money back
Purely because the item sold is unusable based on the implied warranty
The implied warranty being that the coach can be registered and legally utilized on the road.
If he fails to return the funds, send a certified letter giving a deadline.
Then, if he still ignores you, depending on the value, consider small claims or county court.
If this is a dealer then you could also use the state's Attorney General's office, but I am assuming that this was a private sale.
If private, then small claims or county court in the county where the seller is located is where you would need to pursue this individual.
It was private
May I ask what the amount was?
So I can then see if this is small claims or if it is higher court.
Okay, that is not small claims, too high--you would need to pursue this via county courts.
You might need to consider retaining counsel to file for you. He could seek attorney fees as part of judgment but there is no guarantee they would be granted.
all I really need is the name or number of the Georgia Statute and present it to the seller and he will return it
I believe I found the statute for you.
Please review below:
Any person who shall make any false statement in any application for the registration of any vehicle, or in transferring any certificate of registration, or in applying for a new certificate of registration, shall be guilty of false swearing, whether or not an oath is actually administered to him, if such statement shall purport to be under oath. On conviction of such offense, such person shall be punished as provided by Code Section 16-10-71.
Hope that helps and please let me know if I can assist you in any other way.
