Unless there is a substantial amount of property/money involved, you are better off hiring a good KY lawyer...Read more »
You have not disclosed enough information. Is the seller the same person who transferred title? And where is the vehicle? Your title may be fraudulent, so you may wish to call DOS about its status.
