I live in Louisiana. I have some non-blood/no-real-relation relatives that live in a different part of Louisiana than I currently do.
My step-mom(used to be) still have a close relationship. Last year her father passed away leaving my step-mom and her brother as next of kin to inherit a vehicle from their father. Since then, it's been sitting unused.
I've mentioned wanting to receive the vehicle and she said that she would talk it over with her brother. Well, he recently passed away, leaving my step-mom as the sole living next of kin for her father, and she expressed that she wants me to have the vehicle. I asked her about the state of the title, and she mentioned that she had the title (still in her father's name) and death certificates for him. She is currently not in the best of health to be getting out and about to take care of business like this.
I know the proper way to handle this situation would be for her to properly transfer the title to her name then we could do the title transfer between us. However, being that her health is the way it is and me being several hundreds of miles away I'm trying to come up with the best method of transferring the title that requires the least amount of work for her. I would love to hear your thoughts.
