Well, I'm screwed

54 posts in this topic

The guy that was buying the Silverado showed the agreement we were going to have notarized to his lawyer.

As lawyers do, he scared the guy right out of a perfectly good deal.

I hate the times we live in.

I do too. Some days I think that 95% of what's wrong with the world is the fault of lawyers.

...and the best man at my wedding is now a Judge for the state of California...hmmm.

Hope things work out on the Silverado sale. WTF did his layer find wrong????

I guess that the agreement was written by two landscapers instead of two lawyers.

Who the F knows?

Did I miss something? Why is there a legal agreement beyond the scope of signing the back of the title?

Too bad Lawyers don't have to take a 6 month sabbatical every 5 years to make something actually work, or do something useful.

Because there is a lien that has to be satisfied before the title can be "electronically generated".

And, the goddamned bank won't do that until they verfy the payoff for six freaking days!

Try to do the right thing, and this is what happens.

Shoot, when I sold my Colorado, the buyer went with me to the bank that held my loan, paid off the loan and received the title, all within like 15 minutes.

Yeah, the way it should be.

With these bastards it has to be "electronically generated" and it takes 6days of "verification" before they'll send it to you.

No car loans ever again for me.

This is pure bull$h!.

The question now is, what do I do?

And, frankly, I'm at a loss.

the contract for the sale has to have a cooling off period instituted so it can be rescinded if there is an issue with the 6 day verification period. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to accomplish the actual cooling off period if one or both of the parties are uneasy. If the verification were to no go through, then you or the bank would have to make a demand for the vehicle back.

I mean, all the risk and reward is really on the buyer. He will have possession of the vehicle, the money will be in the bank's hands and the title should be delivered to him.

If he wants to return the vehicle in the same reasonable condition which he purchased it within say 7 days, then he should be able to do so prior to the bank verification. But if he does, he has to agree that it may take up to XX number of days for the money to be returned to him by the bank and buyer assumes all transaction fees if he rescinds the contract within the 7 day cooling off period.

What an asinine system we have built for ourselves.

I'm going to take the zero and leave this kind of crap behind me.

Q: What do you call 20,000 lawyers buried at the bottom of the ocean?

A: A good start

Sorry, Camino. Honestly, I don't understand why there was a need to involve a lawyer in a car sale at all.

Really the problem here is the electronic title generation.

Yes, and I'm thinking of suggesting to lawmakers that it be made illegal.

In effect, the bank is blocking my right to sell the truck.

If the buyer is a landscaper and he has his own business and was buying the truck under the business, then a lawyer may need to look it over for tax/liability purposes.

Agree with Bond, James bond.

To me, bankers rate right there with religious prophets (think Jim Jones, Sun Yung Moon, Mohommad, et al) and child molesters as people I pretty much have no use for.

No be like Mr Bond and fis yourself a martini, shaken, not stired, and not too much of that nasty vermooth.

The truck is worth the money you are asking...a buyer will come forth.

This is insane...a lawyer...seriously..."I have a friend who..." Give me a break.

On the other hand, people do private sales of cars with active loans on them every second of every day, I just don't know how the payoff typically works. I'd assume situations like OCN's, ideally, but even then, this seems extreme.

Hmm...

Have you tried taking it to someplace like CarMax to see what they'd offer you for it? They'd be able to deal with the title/loan payoff thing too.

Making me glad that all the cars are paid off. Oh, and that I never sell anything. ;-)

I'm still thinking about what to do, and getting more and more pissed at the whole "electronically generated" title BS. Seems to me that there has to be something illegal in that whole scam.
