I bought a car from a private owner. Title didn't seem correct but I took the car anyway. I tried to register the car but the clerk said I couldn't do it because the title wasn't signed properly. I had to contact the individual who sold the car and said it would be taken care of. I haven't heard from him in 3 months.
You do not say how much you paid for the car. Depending on the amount you may be able to handle this in small claims court. Discuss this with a local attorney. They should be able to get this taken care of.
If there were improprieties in executing the documents of title, you could file suit in small claims court to rescind the contract, and have the court restore the parties to their pre-sale positions. Go see a general practice attorney to make this happen.
