What happens if you lost the details of the person that bought you car and its still in your name?

Cars & Vehicles
Repossession

Go to the Dept of Motor Vehicles and they will direct you how to file for a disclaimer . Do this before the new owner has an accident or gets a ticket, as this may cause you some real serious problems.

In most states, you are responsible for the vehicle until you have officially transferred title to another person or entity, usually via the "pink slip", or title document.

There will be a section that you both fill out to transfer ownership; be certain the new owner fills out his/her section, date it, and make copies for your own protection.

The vehicle is STILL yours until the local Motor Vehicles department processes the request for transfer, so it's best to make the transfer at the Department office.

By doing so, you're in a secure location in case cash trades hands, and you're right where you need to be to finalize the transaction.
