Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a Florida licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.
I am a certified expert on JustAnswer since 2009, with nearly 100% in 5 star ratings. So, we should be able to work through your problem.
I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need without posting on a public forum. I am also happy to continue online.
My condolences for your loss.
There is actually no legal requirement that you do anything.
You ave no legal obligation to probate an insolvent estate. If you do not care about the truck and the only issue is that there is a lien on it, you do not have to do anything and can use the truce any way you want or not use it.
You can give it to the creditor if you want and let them deal with the lost title.
You can not convey clear title without a release of the lien.
You are very welcome.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
A bonus is not expected, but is always appreciated.
