Legal Question

Asked on: 9/14/10, 8:08 pm

My grandmother passed away in July. My mother was told she would get her car. There is a lien holder on title with only a few thousand dollars left to pay it in full. When my mother called the lien holder to see about taking over the payments, they wouldn't talk to her and even went to my grandmother's house to try to repossess the car. My mother has been driving the car for 4 years as my grandmother's health would not allow her to drive anymore. So it has been my mother's car for the past 4 yrs and my grandmother wanted her to be able to keep it. Now the trouble, we need to get it registered as it has lapsed do to dealing with the deaths of 3 family members in 4 months. Can we just register it and keep paying the loan with no repercussion? Or since the lien holder is aware of my grandmother's death can they legally just take the car even though the payments have been made consistently and timely? Please help as my mother is about ready to crack with everything. Thank you.
