No title(s) are left blank. Every title that leaves our office is executed in its entirety.
Open titles are created when a seller signs the title over to the party that has purchased the vehicle, but the buyer information is left blank and ownership of the car is not transferred. Open titles are used in schemes referred to as title jumping or title skipping, both of which are illegal. Unknowing sellers and buyers that enter into transactions with this type of title may be subjected to a variety of risks, including liability for a vehicle that has already been sold and difficulties in transferring ownership after making a purchase.
