Cars

February 20th, 2019 at 08:45 am

First the good car news. My father in law was kind enough to wash and clean out my old car, and park it in his driveway for sale yesterday. Well we already have someone seriously interested. It is at the mechanic today getting inspected and if it looks good it will be sold. That is the fastest I've ever seen a car sold! Unfortunately I will be getting about $200 less than I wanted for it. Father in law offered a lower price than I wanted to start with, but at least it will be off my hands and I will be able to cancel the insurance which is due to renew for the year in the next two weeks.

Then the bad news. I am having a terrible time trying to get my new van changed over to my name. It belonged to a relative who passed away and left it to her daughter. Who is selling it to me. I live right on a state line and the daughter lives in a different state than the deceased relative and I do.

Well we drove the 3 hours to her house and went with her to the DMV with all the multiple papers in hand. After waiting we were told sorry but we had to go the other states DMV. So we hop in the car and drive the 45 minutes and wait all over again. Only to be told no, we need to go back to the old one. By then it was already closed for the day...

So then she goes back alone another day and they tell her, NO they were right the first time we have to go back to the other state...

So then she mails me the title and all the necessary paperwork (will, trust, affidavit, death certificate, etc) Well I went again yesterday and FINALLY they say I have everything I need, except she had mailed me a copied death certificate and I need the original. ARRRRG.

So now she is mailing me the original and hopefully I will be able to go back in next week and get it taken care of. I'm not kidding we have been to 3 different DMVs, 4 times, with over 10 hours of driving and waiting. I can't believe it is this complicated. Ugh. Every person we talked to gave us a different answer. I just think they don't know what they are doing since it involves 3 parties and 2 states.
