My Brother Broke a Verbal Agreement for Transfer of Ownership of my Moms Car

by Very Upset
(Maine)

I have been taking care of my elderly mother at my home in California since December 2017. She has had several medical issues while in my care including a stroke. Upon my mom’s request, we came back to her home in Maine so she could enjoy a few months of the summer at her home.


She no longer has a valid drivers license so she could not register her car. I suggested that she transfer ownership to my brother so he could register the car so we would have a vehicle in case we needed it.

This agreement was made for the purpose that we had a vehicle to drive. There were a few family arguments with my brother which involved calling the police.

He was very angry that I called the police on him but I did it only to protect my mom.

Today, he came to her home and took the car and drove off claiming it was now his car and left us with no transportation. He broke the verbal contract with my mom. Is there something I can do to revoke his ownership of my moms car?

verbal agreement
by: Greenacres

Wow, what an a-hole. I can't believe how families are torn apart like this. Siblings fighting only upsets the one you are caring for.

If you have the time, try court (like you don't have enough to do!). Maybe by now you have reasoned with him, I can't believe he would leave your mom without transportation. Good luck with your brother.

Probably Maine has it's own statutes for civil action for cases like this. You may have to contact a local attorney to ascertain what rights you do and do not have.
