Wow this is a hard one. I think that legally, there’s nothing you can do to sell the car on his behalf. Because that would require a title transfer to you, which is blatantly illegal if the owner is deceased (it’d even require forging his signature) There has to be a legal transfer of ownership to one of his family members as per inheritance law, who then can just sell it.

Sorry to hear that. His family might be able to give power of attorney to a lawyer to sell a car on their behalf. Honestly the best thing is to consult with someone practicing in estate law as they will most likely be able to help you

If you have the car’s title, try some small car dealer owned by minorities. I helped my friend sold his car after he went back to his home country. No major larger dealer will do it because technically the owner of the car need to sign when sell it. In this case, your roommate’s legal heir or trustee of estate can do it with legal documents to prove identity, which is too complicated. In this case, it’s all about help and trust, don’t spend time with someone who follows procedure, which cannot work.

Consult a lawyer obviously but I believe the legal way is for his heir to take title of car and then give you or another friend/relative power of attorney to sell it. Check states dmv site for exact forms and process. There should be a section for deceased owners.

I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?

We would be leaving for Mexico this coming weekend. We don’t have time to rebook given the timelines of our vouchers. I can’t decide if we should go or just eat the trip at this point

I’m torn. Middle of last year my parents “separated” because of my dads drinking problem (well overdue and I’m glad my mom kicked him out). He lost his job around the same time frame due to covid and started using his 401k for alcohol and honestly idk how much he has left. J moved home to support my mom and sister, but I’m torn if I should help him out because he doesn’t have work. Half of me is like this is your fault for 20+ years and the other half is just like I’m the only person he got ATM

I’m back to having no billable work again.

I feel like I start a new job every couple of weeks and am constantly begging for work. I’m just exhausted. Can anyone else relate?

Thoughts?
