My friend signed the title to his vehicle over to me before he died. I now want to put it in my name. His sister has to go to probate court to get his house. Do I have to wait, or can I transfer the title now. His sister is a terrible person. Can she get the truck. I know she will try. He hated her, but he had not written a will yet to give his best friend and I everything. Can I go transfer the title now?
If you have a lien free title to the car already signed by the decedent giving title to you and signed before your friend died, you can just walk down the department of MV and have the title changed. IT has nothing to do with probate.
Hope this helps. If you think this post...
