If her assets are less than what is required for probate, it is possible to transfer the title without probate. Your state's DMV should have the forms. Does the lien holder have a local office? If the title is actually local, it maybe possible to go in and obtain the title. It might be easier to treat this as three separate transactions. Having obtained a bill of sale from the executor that states she is buying the car for the amount of the loan then go to the lien holder. She can pay off the loan and have them sign off the title. She temporarily takes over as the lien holder until the title is transferred to her. Once she has the title, she can go to the DMV with the executor and the clean title to transfer. I have taken over as lien holder on a car because a relative was going through bankruptcy. The car and the loan were not extremely high value and it as the cleanest way to make certain they still had transportation. The transaction is not difficult, but GMAC was a pain. I understand why their clerks were behind bullet resistant glass. Debra
