What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York
I bought a car in my name, the Dealership registered it in my mothers name (this car was for her to use). She was to make the payments for the insurance and the car. She apparently let the insurance lapse in 2010 and did not turn the plates in. She recently lost her job so I had to take the car on. I planned on registering the car in my name and keeping it for myself.
the problem is....When I turned the plates in for her they told me the registration for the car is suspended for 480 days and that I will not be able to register the car even in my name.
this is a problem as I have no place to store this car for a year and I CANNOT sell it.
any advice on what I can do?
