I have a question about an issue about transferring car

Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question about an issue about transferring car title.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Washington. 1999 ford F250 truck.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We bought the truck and paid the owner. He said he brought truck from brother in law and would give us bill of sale. He said he had done this before and no problems. We did it and then noticed at the d m v that there were 2 owners and only 1 signed. I have more if you want to hear it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The guy we bought it from would not connect us with the owner on title so I decided to sign the title as 2nd owner. Now I am having 2nd thoughts and don't want to submit it. I dont' know if I should blank my signature off or what. to do

Just to clarify, you signed someone else's name on the title transfer?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
