I live in North Carolina as well. I had this exact problem with a car I bought from up north several years ago. Like you, I did not realize what was going on until it was too late. The guy I bought it from in New York refused to put it in his name and pay the taxes so I had to get a "bonded" title as you suggested in your first post. My dad is going through this right now with a used boat he bought. My experience is the people that sell things like this are very helpful until you as them to title it in their name and then sign the new title over to you. Once you ask them to do that and pay the taxes they stop answering your phone calls and act like they do not know you. I bet you will have to get a bonded title. Let Florida deal with the previous owner if they want to. Your other option is to find the person in North Carolina that he bought it from (the name of the title) and see if they will sign it over to you. Good luck.

I am from FL and I have titled an out of state Bill of Sale only purchase (no tittle). Also, FL DMV has a vested interest in helping you because they want the revenue the most recent PO did not pay them when he did not transfer his NC title. I believe you will be surprised how easy this might go down with the National Data base now available, and I might add a non disputable source of who owns the vehicle. There really isn't much dispute as far as DMV's are concerned. Your PO never legally owned the trailer as far as the date base shows. Good Luck.

My experience with DMV, suggests that if you show up 3 times and ask 3 different people you will likely get 3 different answers.
Go in , show them what you have, and you may just luck out.
Good luck

Every state is different. I did this a number of times in NJ. I had a valid NJ title, not officially transferred to the middle purchaser. Went to NJ MV, paid the past due fees, got a title in the name of the middle guy. Transferred that to my name. Costly but the final deals were worth it.
