Q: How can I safely buy a used car from a private seller who is still making payments & does not have the title?
Is there a way to handle the sale so I will be protected, and if so, what is it? I have always bought new cars from large, authorized dealerships so this is the first time I've planned to buy a car from a private seller. I prefer not to consult a lawyer for a matter like this, but I also want to make sure my interests are protected. If it makes any difference I live in Maryland & the seller lives 100 miles away in Delaware. The seller is the original owner and her auto loan is with Chrysler Financial since it was purchased at a Chrysler Dealership. (Note: I posted a similar question two days ago but now need to rephrase my question. I welcome any answers, even if you answered my similar question on August 6.)
A: It can be done, but it's a little complicated, and it's going to depend on the laws in the states you're dealing with (Maryland and Delaware). So yes, that makes a BIG difference.
It's not a simple transaction; you're actually talking about doing two transactions: buying ther car in Delaware, and importing it into Maryland.
First, find out what it takes to import a car into Maryland. You'll probably need a clear Delaware title, and proof of insurance. You may need other documentation. Don't confuse the issue for the Maryland folks, tell them you will have a clear Delaware title. Then get it.
You need to make sure the loan is paid off before you can get a clear title; it might be necessary to close the deal at the finance company, so they can be sure to get their money. Another option, which might actually be a requirement, is to have the sale done through a local (Delaware) car dealer. They will charge a fee, of course, which could be anywhere from $25 to $1,000,or more.
In some states you will need a lawyer, in some states it has to be done through a Notary Public.
On the other hand, it might actually be very simple and painless. You need to pick up the phone and ask lots of questions, and I would start with the finance company.
Q: Is buying this car against the law? This is kind of long btw....?
About 6 months ago I purchased a used car from the side of the road from a man. When I went to the MVA to register it they said it was sold to me illegally because the dealer was from West VA, and I live in MD. I had no idea it was wrong. They filed a report, and I got to keep the car. I loved the car until someone rear ended me, and now it's gone.
I saw another car for sale on a different road so I called the number on it. It was the SAME guy! I told him I didn't want to do Business with him because of what happened. He said this car won't cause me any trouble because its all Maryland, where as the other one was from West VA. HE promised me this theme IWould have no trouble. It's a great car for a great price, and I really want to buy it. Assuming that he's being honest, do you think it would work out? Do you have any advice? Thank you in advance.
A: Ever heard that old saying.... "Fool me once shame on you..... Fool me twice shame on me"?
Move on. There are MILLIONS of cars for sale, why buy from a curbstoner/con-man?????
Q: Title transferred and notarized out of state?
I am buying a new car (used 04) from a used car dealership in North Carolina and I am trading in my old one. The car is currently registered in Pennsylvania. However here is the problem. the car I am trading in is a car that is titled and registered to my aunt who lives in Maryland currently (pa drivers license though)
I am located in PA and she is in MD, the dealer is in NC. Basically i want to trade this car in to the dealer WITHOUT my aunt having to drive all the way down to NC because she isn't going to.
Is it possible to get a notary in MD to notarize this title transfer if my aunt who owns the car signs the transfer and lists the buyers name and then the dealer signs it when I get down there?
OR I will have to have the car titled in my name with a temporary registration in MD with my aunt basically selling it to me. It isn't "exempt" from the gifting tax because she is not over 65 however it says the minimum tax is 38.50. I guess we could say I am buying it off her for $640, the minimum amount and pay the 38 bucks in tax and 50 in other fees first. The dealer said I could sign a contract indicating I will get him the title.
However I would much rather go with option two. Do you think I could get a notary in MD to sign it as long as my aunt is there to sign over the sale? I don't see how I couldn't find one to do that, especially if they are a small notary service.
I need to know the best way to do this since I am picking up my new car on Thursday. Thank you!
Also, does the car have to be legally registered in PA at the time? Registration was up February but I didn't want to spend $36 to get it registered (since i drive the car) when I knew I would be getting rid of it. I heard that it doesn't have to be correct?
A: Not so good advice from Kelly or Bajakma..How does the dealership you are trading the vehicle in know you didn't steal the car from your aunt?? How do they know you have her permission to trade the car? They don't!! And if her name is not going to appear on any paperwork for your new car, any reputable dealership will NOT accept your aunt's car as a trade! I suggest you get a notarized letter from your aunt with all the information about the vehicle...make, model, vin, color, doors etc. authorizing you or allowing you to use the car as a trade in for another car. It probably would help if she put the name of the dealership you will be trading it in at. Example: I, XXXXX, owner of a Year, make, model, VIN#XXXXXXX, am authorizing ( or allowing) my nephew,XXXXX to use the above referenced vehicle as a trade in to XXX(name of dealership.) Her notarized signature.
The vehicle does not need to be registered to sell it, but I am not sure how you are going to get it to NC without plates. But that is your decision.
Q: Driving Uninsured car blues + What happens at a preliminary inquiry?
I got a "must appear in court" ticket along with a notice to appear in court within 3 days for a preliminary hearing.What happens at a preliminary hearing.
I got a ticket for driving an uninsured vehicle.The car I was driving used to be mine but I sold it to someone and only have a bill of sale to prove that.I did take in the bill of sale to MVA (Maryland Vehicle Administration)to prove that I had sold the car and was no lnger responsible for the insurance.MVA accepted this and told me to pay a penalty for the month that I did own it.
The buyer, on the other hand, never went into mva to register the car and has been using it unregistered and uninsured.I recently got back possession of the car and was driving home when i was pulled over and got the must appear ticket.
Am I responsible for the whole time that the buyer did not have the car insured?That is, from 3/18/06 till jan08.
When i go to court what could I expect?
A: whenever the cars in your name, your responsible for the insurance. however if the title was signed over to him. he would be automaticaly responsible for insurance.
Q: i am going for a 10 hours amtrak, any advice?
after a trip to ohio, i am coming back to maryland. but the flight ticket was so expensive, i'd like to take an amtrak ~_~ 11hours!
any idea what should i prepare for such a long trip?
there would be food for sale on car? blanket?
please tell my laptop can be used. if not, i would be deadly boring ~_~ do i need a special tool or converter, outlet surge to plug in???
thanks in advance!!
A: The best thing to do on the train is catch up on sleep! I find it easy to fall asleep to the gentle rocking of the train. Usually it's nice to have "forced free time" on the train. Books, crossword puzzles, they're all good to have along. Writing can be difficult depending on how smooth the tracks are along your particular route.
A laptop is great to have along. Most cars I've been on in the last few years have electrical outlets in each row of seats, but in cars that have not been retrofitted, there may only be a plug-in every few rows of seats. Ask the car attendant/conductor for help in finding where one is available if you need it. I have also sometimes taken my laptop to the lounge car and charged my battery there while enjoying the scenery, then returning to my seat when the battery is recharged. You will not need any special converters or such, they are exactly the same outlets you find in any wall plug in (3 prongs).
If you're going to watch a movies or listen to music on your laptop, you should bring earphones, for the sake of your neighbors (they may want to get caught up on sleep too).
There should be food for sale on board. There may not be a full meal service on the train (a cost cutting measure implemented in recent years), but there is at least a snack shop available in the lounge car which is open most of the time (closes during overnight hours). The snack shop food is not too great in my opinion. There is no rules against bringing your own food onboard. I would recommend bringing plenty of snacks so that you don't have to rely on Amtrak's food.
They may have blankets for sale on board. I bought one onboard long ago, but they may not do that anymore. I would recommend bringing your own just to be safe. The cars to seem do seem to be kept fairly cool for the most part so you will appreciate having it. Travel-sized pillows are provided during overnight hours (they have sanitary disposable covers on them). If you want one during the day, you'll have to request it from a car attendant.
Q: Car export tax?
I wanted to buy a car today for my friend who lives outside U.S. The dealer said me that he does not know anything about car export. The dealer is in Virginia, and I live in Maryland. He said he'll give me a 30 day temporary tag and issue a bill-of-sale.
Does anybody know if I can export the car with bill-of-sale and temporary tag within 30 days (without paying sales tax and registration fees to Maryland) ?
Or will I need to pay taxes and fees anyway (even if I am not going to use it here) ?
A: ITS BEST IF YOU CONTACT YOUR LOCAL (DMV) DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES OFFICE, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO ANSWER ANY AND ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU WILL BE GETTING THE CORRECT ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION.
Q: Is the liberal media protecting Al Gores son, if he was the son of a Republican it would be on TV everyday?
Al Gore III faces felony drug charges
Former vice president has little to say today about son's arrest.
City News Service
MISSION VIEJO – Former Vice President Al Gore's son faced drug charges today in Orange County as his father faced the media while preparing for an international music festival to highlight global warming.
Al Gore III, 24, a Los Angeles resident, was driving a blue Toyota Prius south on the San Diego (5) Freeway about 2:15 a.m. yesterday when a sheriff's deputy stopped him at the Crown Valley Parkway exit for speeding, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.
The deputy smelled marijuana and searched the car, finding less than an ounce of pot, but also the prescription drugs Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Soma and Adderall, which is used to treat attention deficit disorder.
The Harvard graduate said he did not have a prescription for the drugs and admitted smoking pot shortly before being stopped, Amormino said.
However, authorities did not book him on suspicion of DUI because they decided Gore was not "impaired" by the marijuana, he said.
He was arrested on suspicion of drug possession -- and speeding -- and booked into jail in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail. One of his sisters, reportedly Sarah, posted his bail and he was released about 2 p.m. yesterday.
Appearing on NBC's "Today" show for a previously scheduled interview, the former vice president -- who is one of the organizers of this weekend's "Live Earth," a 24-hour, seven-continent concert series to promote the battle against global warming -- was asked about the arrest.
"Well, we're dealing with it as a private family matter," Gore said, "and we love him very much, and we're glad that he's safe, and that he's getting treatment, and we're going to leave it as a private matter."
Possessing less than an ounce of pot is a misdemeanor, but illegal possession of prescription drugs is a felony.
Gore is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 1. Prosecutors have not decided whether to file felony charges against him, said Susan Schroeder of the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
Orange County offers three drug diversion programs that allow people to undergo treatment instead of going to jail, but participants must meet certain qualifications, she said.
Among the qualifications for the "Drug Court" program operated by the Orange County Superior Court, a participant must have no record of violence, drug trafficking or possession of drugs for sale, said court spokeswoman Carole Levitzky.
It is aimed at people with a second or third offense, and there "has to be a willingness" to go through drug treatment programs, such as attend a 12-step program, she said.
"It's hard -- they get tested frequently," Levitzky said.
Schroeder said the programs basically require participants to enter guilty pleas. Under a drug diversion program put in place by the Legislature, the defendant enters a guilty plea, but the plea is not entered as a judgment and it is never recorded if the person successfully completes a program.
Under the Proposition 36 program passed by voters, a person pleads guilty and is sentenced to treatment instead of jail, she said.
The son of the former vice president was charged with marijuana possession in Maryland in 2003 after police stopped the car he was driving for not having its headlights on. In February 2004 he entered a substance abuse program as part of a plea agreement.
Gore was ticketed for reckless driving by North Carolina police in August 2000 for allegedly driving 94 mph, and in September 2002, military police arrested him on suspicion of drunk driving near a military base in Virginia.
A: Consider moving to Russia, where there is no liberal bias in the media at all.
Q: Do I have to pay sales tax on a vehicle in Houston TX that I plan to resale?
I have recently purchased a 2005 Chevy 2500HD for $11,300 in the state of Maryland that I am waiting to have shipped down to Houston TX. I purchased the truck under the assumption that I was losing my company car. Recently I have found out that I get to keep my company car and have no use for the Chevy truck. NADA trade in on the truck is $19,300.00. I safely feel I can at least break even or mostly make a profit on the truck. I plan on receiving the truck in Houston and then immediately resale the vehicle. I will take it to Carmax if I have to. Is there a way to get around paying the 6.25% sales tax on purchased vehicles if I strictly resale the truck? i.e. – I do not title it in my name, or I obtain a resale certificate, or etc…???
A: I am not sure about in TX, but in my state you have to have a tax id in order to purchases things with the purpose of resale and not pay taxes on them. You would however have to pay sales take when you sold it if this is the case.
Hope this helps! Good luck!!
Q: Strange Sex Laws In the USA?
No man is allowed to make love to his wife with the smell of garlic, onions, or sardines on his breath in Alexandria, Minnesota. If his wife so requests, law mandates that he must brush his teeth.
Warn your hubby that after lovemaking in Ames, Iowa, he isn't allowed to take more than three gulps of beer while lying in bed with you—or holding you in his arms.
Bozeman, Montana, has a law that bans all sexual activity between members of the opposite sex in the front yard of a home after sundown—if they're nude.
In hotels in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, every room is required to have twin beds. The beds must always be a minimum of two feet apart when a couple rents a room for only one night. And it's illegal to make love on the floor between the beds.
The owner of every hotel in Hastings, Nebraska, is required to provide each guest with a clean and pressed nightshirt. No couple, even if they are married, may sleep together in the nude, nor may they have sex unless they are wearing one of these clean, white cotton nightshirts.
An ordinance in Newcastle, Wyoming, specifically bans couples from having sex while standing inside a store's walk-in meat freezer.
A state law in Illinois mandates that all bachelors should be called master, not mister, when addressed by their female counterparts.
In Norfolk, Virginia, a woman can't go out without wearing a corset. (There was a civil-service job—for men only—called a corset inspector.)
In Merryville, Missouri, women are prohibited from wearing corsets because "the privilege of admiring the curvaceous, unencumbered body of a young woman should not be denied to the normal, red-blooded American male."
It's safe to make love while parked in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Police officers aren't allowed to walk up and knock on the window. Any suspicious officer who thinks that sex is taking place must drive up from behind, honk his horn three times and wait approximately two minutes before getting out of his car to investigate.
A law in Helena, Montana, mandates that a woman can't dance on a table in a saloon or bar unless she has on at least three pounds, two ounces of clothing.
Lovers in Liberty Comer, New Jersey, should avoid satisfying their lustful urges in a parked car. If the horn accidentally sounds while frolicking behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, the couple can face a jail term.
Women aren't allowed to wear patent-leather shoes in Cleveland, Ohio—the thinking is that a man might see the reflection of something he shouldn't.
Maryland prohibits the selling of condoms through vending machines in gas stations and stores—with one major exception. Prophylactics may be dispensed by a vending machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises."
In Texas, no one other than a "registered pharmacist" may sell condoms or other kinds of contraceptives "on the streets or other public places." No, not even physicians. Anyone who tries to make a few extra bucks doing this will be severely prosecuted for the dire act of "unlawfully practicing medicine."
Kentucky and Idaho limit condom sales to medical practitioners and licensed pharmacists, but their license to sell the items may not be hung on a wall where it can be seen by customers.
Maine licenses condom sellers and the license must always be on public display.
Nevada, with 35 legal bordellos, has no condom problem. The use of condoms in Nevada brothels is compulsory.
Both Indiana and Ohio have laws that prohibit male skating instructors from having sexual relations with their female students. This misdeed, called "the seduction of female students," is prosecuted as a felony. This statute applies only to male teachers. It seems female skating instructors may have sex with male students.
A: in mount airy, north carolina males have to nut in their wives everytime they have sexual relations because they are trying to increase the population
