Can I file civil suit agains someone who transfered a vehicle with a lien attached?
I paid for a Utility work truck over the coarse of about 10 weeks from a friend and he bought it from someone else that got it from the original owner. During the time paying for it spent about $1800 on it and $600 for it, once paid for I got the signed title
but it signed by original owner. I went to DMV
to register it I was informed it had a state tax lien on it. Apparently the original owner knew of it and still transferred ownership
to an ex employee
. I have contacted original owner a couple times to see if he had a release of lien and no response so stopped into State Taxation and Revenue and they could confirm. What can I do?
JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?
Customer: New Mexico and it a 1986
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Not that I know of, can you elaborate
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
