We are buying a used car, and the previous owner has filed a police report for some minor cosmetic damage but the work has not been completed yet. Does anyone know if we transfer the car's title, will the work still be able to be done from the previous owner's police report? We have been waiting a while for this, so we are considering just buying the car with the damage, since it is so minor.

Hi. Who do you expect will pay for the repairs to be done? The existing owner's insurance company? If so might be useful to check with them if they will do the work even though the policy will have been cancelled when you buy the car. Sounds problematic to me. Why not get a quote for the repairs and subtract it from the purchase price or at least some sort of discount. You may find you can live with the cosmetic defects for awhile.

That's exactly what we decided to do. I figure it's bound to get dinged up here anyway. Thank you!
