    Auto title transfer from PA to NY

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY

    My Mom passed away in November without a will. I am trying to transfer the title of her car to me (her son). The problem is she lived in Pennsylvania and I live in NY. I called the DMV and the Title office in NY and was told to fill out and notarize a next of kin form, which I did. But now PA won't transfer the title to NY and I don't know how to proceed. What should I do?

    My sister lives in PA. Would it be easier to transfer the title to her and then she can "sell" me the car?

    "But now PA won't transfer the title to NY"

    When they refused, they would have given a reason for the objection.

    What was it?

    It is slightly odd that the transfer was accepted by the the destination state but refused by the outbound state.

    Outstanding fees or taxes or liens associated with vehicle or PA title?
