Vehicle was driven into a lake. Driver attempted to defraud lien holder. Fraud was discovered. Lien holder was paid out via forced placed insurance, but chose not to repossess as cost was too high. Can tow company demand title without giving notice of sale as required by Idaho Statute 49-1810. Also does tow company have to give notice to both lien holder and registered owner, or is one sufficient?
The tow company can demand anything, but that does not mean it is entitled to what is being demanded. IF the tow company follows has a statutory lien, and follow the legal process for perfecting and foreclosing the lien, the tow company will likely be entitled to title to the vehicle subject to any rights of redemptions as provided by law.
