Unless she is the administratrix of the estate her signature might not matter. He should have checked the intestacy statute or consultes a lawyer before he decided to take possession.

I bet if you get the right form signed by her - likely you can get a title from NJ -- call the DMV and ask what you need to do.

I went through this about 6 years ago on a different property (junk car abandoned). My attorney handled it and after something like 90 days, I was free to remove the car.

As for the 'estate' in this case, the wife of the deceased requested that I remove the car so she could get the parking space back for her new car. She just doesn't have a copy of the title.

Actually, you committed a crime by moving the vehicle. It is not your property, not may it be deemed "abandoned" in the absence of a court order. It's estate property. You can file a claim against the estate for the storage charges, but you can't touch the vehicle. Serious mistake.

Motor vehicles. Occasionally, a departing tenant will leave an inoperable or ?junker? automobile in the parking lot or garage. Motor vehicles are often a special category of personal property to which state rules on abandoned property don?t apply. If the tenant has left a car or other vehicle behind, call the local police, giving the vehicle?s license plate number, make, and model, and indicate where it?s parked. The police will probably arrange to have it towed after determining that it is abandoned.

The former owner is deceased and the car has been abandoned for about a year. So technically, I own it.. but how do I go about proving that to the MVC?


This guidance from DMV should help, but I think the vehicle belongs to the owner's estate, not you.
