That is an interesting series of facts. If you purchased the vehicle at an auction, you should have received a bill of sale from the auctioneer. If you submit that bill of sale to the motor vehicle agency in Virginia, they will probably issue a title transfer.

This answer is intended as a general discussion of the topic and is not legal advice. It is not intended to form an attorney and client relationship with the questioner and no such relationship will be established without further discussion, the payment of a fee, a conflict check and the execution of a written legal services agreement. I am classified by federal law as a debt relief agency and have been proudly filing bankrutpcy cases for consumers for more than 30 years.
