Lost Title

My ex-brother-in-law refused to get a duplicate title when he was told I had lost the title he signed over to me. He has now gone to the vehicle department and told them, he sold the vehicle but didn't know the person's information. They pulled the license plates and tags from the vehicle, via computer, so I am know driving a vehicle without plates per the computer.

I am living in a different state than where it was registered. I was told the only way to get a duplicate title was to have the seller request it. He refused.

Registered in Arizona, living in Washington.

I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Is there a reason you didn't have the title put in your name when you purchased the vehicle?
I assume the registration is in his name ??

You might try contacting the tag office that pulled the tags, since they know the vehicle's been sold, they might help you get it straighten out.

I don't think there's any way out of it beyond offering $ to the ex-BIL to get a dupe. Jerk that he appears to be, he's liable to hold out for a lot of $$$. You didn't say year/make/model; it's worth something?

Don't drive it; don't know about your neck of the woods, but it'll get you a ride to the graybar motel down here; it's an unregistered vehicle. In the process, the vehicle will get impounded and you won't get it back from the towing company since you will be unable to show proof of ownership. The notice of impoundment would go to the last person officially recorded as the owner/registrant. Not only that, but it's not legally yours, strictly speaking.
