I found this car that I want and I know the registration has not been paid for about 5 years since it hasn't been driven and has flat tires and a dead battery. Will I have an issue registering this vehicle and am I responsible for the past non paid registration fees and penalties even though the car has not been driven but not registered with non operation status. Will the DMV waive these fees or is there a new owner penalty fee for registering a car that had not been registered in a long time? I am in Los Angeles and would love any input. Thanks so much!
