The Bill of Sale will release his interest in the car- AND you've establihsed the current lendor will release their interest in the title upon reecipt of $xxx. You could also put something in the BOS whereby he indemnifies you for any legal expenses to get the title should there be extenuating circumstances- but Ive never had an issue.

Are you really so naive as to think my advice was limited to just taking possession of the vehicle? Surely you can't be so foolish? My advice assumed he was intelligent enough to obtain a bill of sale and keep a record of payment. You didn't actually think he was foolish enough to be unaware to obtain such basic documentation?
