Looking for answers about obtaining a title.

The cars were in the possession of someone else who is now deceased,  they were not in his name, they are on someone else's property. They are new enough that they were titled to someone which ownership is likely bound by an estate, those VIN numbers are registered to the previous owner. The property owner is not sounding willing to have them removed.

 

I'd say the possibility of getting a clear title to these vehicles is slim to none, and even if successful, it's going to be expensive (to do it the legal way). I would definitely get a clear title before investing one dollar in them. The bill of sale can help, but if it wasn't notarized..

The Chevy was in his name. The Dodge may have been in his mother's name. The vehicles are on someone else's property now but I have made arrangements to have them moved to property I own soon. The bill of sale, if relevant, is not notorized, but is dated before he passed away. Surviving spouse came into discussion but the vehicles were sold to me before he passed anyways.

In Florida when doing something strange, it is best to go to a smaller dmv out in the sticks than one in a city. I would not go to Orlando unless something normal. for abby I'd go to Clermont.

Note: some will only handle reidents of the local county. Some also make appointments.

I live in a fairly small area so that definitely wasn't a problem to begin with. Basically, it's down to the same thing. I am going to have to try to seek out a court order to have the vehicles signed over in my name. I'll have to go in front of a judge and provide any documentation, which the bill of sale is all I have. My dad was there when it took place as well so there is the possibility that his word could be used in court to support this as well. Hopefully, I'll be able to pull the vehicles and once they are here I should be able to pursue that. I appreciate all the help from the people here  I wish there were an easier way to get the vehicles titled  There might be a possibility of going about it as if they are abandoned vehicles in the state of Florida, but I somewhat doubt that.

If I told them I owned the vehicle and lost the title and they did a new one, wouldn't that still come back as his titles and then I'd have to have him sign them to me? That wouldn't be possible though since he is deceased. The local DMV is wanting me to contact legal services and go before a judge to try to have them court appointed if I have bill of sale and present any documentation I have. 

YOU MIGHT NEED TO PRESENT DMV with a copy of death certificate of previous owner. in some states that will simplify the process greatly. but as mentioned earlier, all states are different. used to be you could get an alabama title for anything.
