if someone dies and you use the death certificate to get the vehicles in your name can anyone stop you from taking the vehicles
1 Answer from Attorneys
This is a rather vague question. Ownership of those cars can be determined by many things, including if they were titled jointly, whether they were disposed of by the deceased's will, or if no will by intestate succession statute. You have not explained your relationship to the deceased. Without anymore information, I cannot give you an answer.
