Lost car title

Hi folks,
I have bought a car a little while back ago and now just got around to registering it. I have lost the title but have the bill of sale. I can't get in touch with the previous owner. How can I go and get a new title??? There are no liens on the title.

Have you thought about calling the DMV?

consumer, you need to go to DMV to work all that out so you can give them the complete history and the complete story.

How do you know there are no liens on the title? Sounds to me like the previous owner is conveniently out of touch. I think you might be screwed. I bet the car doesn't have a clear title (it belongs to someone else or the car was totaled at one time).

The car is paid in full and I know that the title is clear. It belong to a friend of mine who got deployed overseas w/ USMC and needed to sell the car. We still talk but there is nothing he can do right now to help me with the title.
