So, we bought my daughter a car- but about 7 months after, it needed some work done and when we took it in we found out that it was going to cost over 1,000 dollars to fix. We decided at that point to just sell it. That was the end of September. The guy who bought it did not register it and I guess he totaled it. Hubby got a call a couple of days ago asking if he had been in an accident -he said no, then they asked if I had been and he said no. That's when they told him the car had been totaled.
Here is the problem-
We have looked EVERYWHERE for the proof of sale we had him sign for us and we cannot find it.
Anyone know what will happen now? Are we going to be responsible for this? UGH
We have his name and number- but that's it (somehow managed to find the paper we wrote that on when he called us about the car)
*there really isn't a good category for this one!

SO you don't have title to this car? If not, you won't be able to sell it w/out the cooperation of the guy you bought the car from. You may have to get a lawyer involved if he won't cooperate. GL

Oh- so he failed to register the title of the car in his name? Well, that should still be on him then. That means he was driving without proper tags & registration & that will get him in trouble too. I'm assuming you let your insurance co. know that you sold the car right? I don't think you guys can be held responsible for any of it.
