Attn: Washington Resident. Q about lost titles
Posted 12 January 2004 - 01:02 AM
The story goes like this: I contacted the lady with the 90 Legacy LS with the bad front crank pulley. I went up and bought it. When she went to get the title. She could not find it. She has been looking without success for the title. Tags expired 12/03, so the car is worthless until I get the title.
Ok. I know she can get a new title, takes up to 8 weeks.
I bought a different vehicle in Washingtion a few weeks ago and I hadt to I go in with the seller, and gotten the title directly transfered over to me at the local Washington motor vehicle station.
When I got my RX from Corky, I received a piece of paper (proof of ownership) and a bill of sale. And then took this paper work and got a Washington title. That is the way I got my title for my RX.
What is that piece of paper called and where can the seller get it. Does Washington carry a Bill of Sale?
Any other ideas?

Re-reading your post it sounds like you already transferred the title and I'm not sure the above will work now that it's in your name. Although you might go to Vancouver and get a Certificate in Lieu of Title if the title is now in your name. That should be an immediately transferable title so you can sell the car without waiting for the 8 weeks.

I ran into a similar problem with a vehicle I purchased off of Ebay. The person I purchased the car from tried to sign over the title to me when the car wasn't registered in his own name. He kept it for a year and never bothered to register it. The solution to my problem was to purchase a bond from a insurance company. I only had a copy of the title as I sent the original back to the seller to try and straighten it out but never got it back. I also had to provide a certified value of the car to the DMV.
Not sure if this will help you or not.
PS. I still have those nice rims you sold to me. Best regards.

The seller needs to get "certificate of lost title" Then you and the seller go to a Notary, show I.D., get it all signed off and notarized, Back to the D.O.L. and transfer it over!

I remember with the RX, I tried to take the in Lieu of Title into Oregon DMV, and they said it was not a reconcized Title and I would have to get a Washington title, and then transfer it. So that is what I did.
When I sell the vehicle, I will give them the title, and a Emission slip from Oregon or Washington, depending on where they live.
ONE MORE QUESTION. Can you get a trip permit in Washington on a vehicle that you don't own???

On a side note.. In TX, a $25 trip permit is good for 30 days.
