I am about to end my relationship and am curious to how this would work. I had my boyfriend register my car under his name because I couldn't afford it at the time.
I have definitely made up for the amount he spent on it. If he signs the title do I still have to register the car under my name or can I just leave and do it when I have a little more money to afford it?
He likes to threaten to call the cops when I take the car even though I bought it and fixed it with the money from my own pocket. He hasn't put a cent toward it since he registered it.
If I leave with the signed title can he call the cops for stealing? Even though it's my car just under his name?
I'm in New York I just got him to sign it. He doesn't know I'm leaving yet. I'm leaving Saturday. I am going to go down to the DMV tomorrow and see what I can do.
The only reason he signed it over is because its registered under his name and he doesn't have a license. He got pulled over the other day for it. So he signed it over after a lot of stuff. He at first refused to sign it. Because I think deep down he knows I'm leaving. But I think he thinks I'm not going to.
I'm going to see how it goes tomorrow. I just want to make sure he can't call the police and tell them I stole it.
It was my car before I met him but he likes to hold it over my head. I don't want to get arrested over his arrogance.
