Texas DMV: Reagor-Dykes should promptly resolve title issues

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has contacted the chief restructuring officer effectively running Reagor-Dykes Auto Group while in bankruptcy proceedings, informing his team of about 100 consumer complaints.

Most of the complaints surround titles not being transferred.

Counsel for the TX DMV asks, because of the number of complaints, Reagor-Dykes identify consumers who have purchased a vehicle from the Auto Group but not yet received their title. "TxDMV asserts that protocols should promptly be put in place to effectuate the transfer of titles to these innocent purchasers."

The state also cites a 2004 court case stating that once a vehicle is sold to an "innocent purchaser" the security interest of the floor planner does not transfer with the vehicle. "Thus, your interest in the above-referenced bankruptcy matter is with the Debtors, not innocent purchasers". 

It also states if any such vehicle is held as perceived collateral, state law states the title passes to these "innocent purchasers" at the time of enforceable sale.

"Accordingly, TxDMV requests that your companies being the process of transferring title to innocent purchasers."
