Swithing car title from someone who has passed away
Perhaps someone here can help me. I have a car that was my dads and he passed away. I am trying to get it legally in my name. There is a brother that has all of his things now and is "over" his estate. Does he need to sign the car title or what should I do? I definitely want to do it the legal way.
Re: Swithing car title from someone who has passed away
You will need the present title with a death certificate, the paper which names the executor, the insurance card, and present registration card. You will probably need proof that you are to be the owner or the executor to sign the present title. You need to take all of these papers to the DMV. You might call the number to make sure the executor can sign the title before the estate is settled(if it is not settled yet). It will take from 2-4 weeks to get the new title, registration and insurance changed to your name.
