I am sorry to hear this. I think your text messages are strong evidence that she intended it either as a gift or transfer of the property. Now, you should have transferred title to the car but I still think in court your text messages would be sufficient. Furthermore, the payments you made to your older sister also show intent on your part.
I think if she notified the police you could show them your text messages and they would view this as a civil issue not criminal. If your older sister has title then she can only transfer her half of the ownership. Just co-signing on the loan does not necessarily give her title. The person who has registered title to the vehicle has the right to sell or transfer.
It might simplify the dispute but I think your text messages are strong evidence that she transferred title to you.
You would have to sue to get your noncooperating sister to transfer title.
You can keep it while the suit goes through.
Let me know if you have any additional questions otherwise a positive rating would be greatly appreciated as we are only paid if we receive a rating of 3 or higher.
I'm not sure. Perhaps because you had several follow up questions. You would need to contact customer service.
