So in retrospect this was dumb of me, but back in 2014 I picked up a project car that wasn’t running and started tearing it down. I was in no rush to get the title officially transferred over because it wasn’t drivable, and wasn’t aware that the state (Massachusetts) wants titles transferred within 10 days of purchase (now i know why people leave the date blank).
So now I have no time for the project and i’m selling it to someone else. Am I totally screwed with the title? Do I have to track down the original seller and go through that whole process again?
I’m hoping that they’ll just fine me? I can live with that. It would be much less of a pain than getting the original seller to get a duplicate title and sign in over to me all over again… has anyone else dealt with this before?
