I am trying to help my mother-in-law sell my late father-in-law's pickup truck. The title is still in his name and he is dead and unable to transfer the title.

Is there any way in this case that we can transfer the title directly to a buyer, or do we have to transfer the title to my mother-in-law prior to sale?

Thanks for your info.

since your motherinlaw is the sole survivor of the owner I believe that makes her the "owner" of the truck so she would be able to sign the tittle over to the new buyer. Maybe, but what the hell do I know?

Love,
Chris

I vaguely recall standing in line behind someone in the same situation. The survivor came in with the buyer and they were told that they needed a death certificate and/or a statement of inheritance or something like that. But she may have to transfer it into her name first, it could have been just the first step they were referring to in the procedure.

I would heartily recommend going to the Roseville DMV on Lexington at Woodhill (just north of Cty C). They know everything, and are extremely helpful.

That's where I did the overhearing. They know the rules. You can't slide much by them but when you get an answer you'll know they didn't just make it up.

That is exactly what I wanted to do, but Mother Tuorila wants to make sure everything is by the book.

I have been in this situation (as a buyer). It ended up being a very long and difficult process to finally get the title in my name.

It all started with a requirement of a document stating proof of death and property transfer to the wife.

It ended with me getting a bond title as the wife had moved out of state and was unreachable.

Mind you this was in Colorado so things may be a little different.

Trust me. I work with DMV all the time. This is the way to go.

I go with Bob on this one. It's probably more important to report the sale to the DMV, so that you don't get on the hook for any tickets or accidents after it is sold and you hand off the title to the buyer. I think it's the law now to report the sale.

Ironic that the DPS server for this is named after a tree that's been decimated by disease.
