I'm thinking about buying a car. Guy has been giving me a little grief but I mainly think it is because he is just lazy. He has a car and the title, and he says that the name on the title has signed the title. but it is not his name. He said he just didn't want to wait a month on the paperwork. is this a dumb idea to go through with this purchase. If i have a title that is signed by the title holder and my name filled in....how far will that get me legally?
