I sold my car to someone and he didn't He has not change the title under his name Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? Ford hb 2012 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far? I don't know what to do

Automotive Expert
Hello my name is\*\*\*\*\* is a little out of scope for this group but I will try to help. Does your state require you to sign the title when you sell it?

I don't know
Automotive Expert
Ok. Do you remember signing it?
Automotive Expert
Did you witness the buyer sign it also? To be clear I'm talking about the title NOT a bill of sale typed up by one of you.

NoI remember him signing it I mean I do remember signing it but I don't remember it was that
Automotive Expert
If it was a title and you both signed it where you should then the car is legally transferred in most states. whether he registers the vehicle or not doesn't matter to you but usually a buyer is required to within a certain time frame. if it was just a bill of sale then he could have thrown it out the window and if neither of you signed the actual title then it's legally still your car. Are you able to contact the person you sold it to?

But I've been receiving tickets that's the problem in my mail with my name still saying this my car I know what to do should I report it or should I wanna knowhe really got pull over and him they gave him a ticket for not having a driver licence and a ticket seid my name like the owner of the car to Gilberto in his like what so I hope that ticket is not coming towards me
Automotive Expert
Oh wow! Yes, that's no joke. If the ticket is in your name you need to probably speak to a lawyer who deals with that. At this point it's not a title/DMV issue it's a legal one. I would say you could also speak to your local police department but I don't know all the details so I would say a lawyer can direct you to the best course of action before doing that. See if there is a lawyer on here with experience in your states applicable laws. If not, most lawyers offer a free in person consult.

Tell your scary me because this is getting serious I think I'm well thank you I will contact a lawyer right away tomorrow morning 1st thing that amodu will thank you very much for your help appreciate that
Automotive Expert
No problem! Good luck.

Automotive Expert
No problem. If you could just rate this interaction so I can close it out that would be great! Have a good night.
