Then when they hear people say, "title", they must understand it to meen cert of ownership, because my bank will not fund my loan without a copy of the released title, copies of registrations for boat and trailer and a bill of sale.
Oregon, at least Portland, DOES have paper titles and unfortunately it's holding up my purchase. When the owner and I looked into it, we were told that the easiest way was for him to pay off his loan and get the title. Well, that's great, but his bank initially told him 4 days, now they're saying 10 days just to send it out.
I'm beginning to think I should have just did it the difficult way and asked him to go into his bank with me and get a affidavit in lieu of title so i could pick up the boat sooner. now we're waiting on his bank, which is pretty lame. If it had been here in Washington, they would have simply pulled an electronic copy from the bank and faxed it to my lender and we'd be done with it.
