Default Title issue...?

Has anybody every purchase a car or motorcycle from a Auction with out a title...? What steps are reguired to get one...?

I know where a really nice shadow is but has no title...This guy claims he got it from a friend that purchase at a Auction...he has the bill of sale from the Auction. Has a letter/statement from the State Police stating they checked the Vin # and its not stolen...He further claim that the buying need
a Court Order to take to the DMV so they will issue a new title...He claims the only reason he did not petition the Court for said Order is due to health reason...I have never purchased a vehicle from a Auction before and don't
have a clue if what he is telling me make sense or not...Thanks

Get the vin and run it for yourself:
https://www.nicb.org/theft_and_fraud...check/vincheck

That will tell you if it's wrecked beyond possibility of salvage title or stolen.

If that checks out it varies by state, and I would just call your local PD non-emergency and/or DMV and ask what it would take, and fees would be involved. Most states it's just normal title fees + like $20 if everything is on the up and up.

:edit:
If he's gone through all that and still doesn't have a title I would say odds are good something doesn't check out though.

Go or call you local DMV and ask how to do it. For all you know, all the documents he has could be bogus.

Could be ... pulls up for me. It's just an insurance company that provides a free vin check for the 2 big no-go title status flags. Wrecked beyond possible salvage re-certification/Stolen

For $10-$20 you can get a fuller report with all transfers, accidents, salvage, rebuilt, etc.
