I bought a vechile in 2005. The seller lost the title, but would get the title or a Release of Interest to me ASAP. When I didn't here back from the seller for sometime I left several messages phone and notes on on her door requesting the title and informed her that having it on the property with expired tabs is violation of a rule/regulation in my lease. The property manger knoew the situation and was patient. This went on for over five years. I finally recieved a Release of Interest in January 2009. I immediatly went to tranfer ownership but was unable too because of lien on the title that I was never made aware of.
