Question by  jessemiller (13)

What can I do if I sold a car yet the title was never changed and I am not being sued for towing and storage?

I sold my car and am not being sued for towing and storage fees that were incured by the new owner.

You need to be able to prove that you are not the owner of the car. This means sale documents, receipts of payment, proof of registration by the actual owner, or something else that shows the title to the car is held in equity by the other party, even though you hold the legal title.

If you did not sign the title over, you still own the car, despite the exchange of money for the sale of the sale of the vehicle. If you did sign the title and the new owner did not file it, you're off the hook. Go to court and explain.

Unfortunately you will be held liable. The legal owner of the car is the person's name who is on the title. The towing place has the legal right to make you pay. Make sure you pay the fee and take possession of the car. Hold it until the title is changed over and add on the towing fees also.

Always make sure the title gets changed upon the sale. Go with the person to the DMV and get the title changed. You can go to the DMV now and get the proper paperwork to declare that the vehicle is no longer yours and that will clear up the problem.

If you mean that you are "now" being sued by the owner, you will have to prove that a sale took place. If you have signed documentation that you sold the other person your car, you may have a chance. However, if you never signed over the title, the sale was not legally completed so you still own the car.
