That's what I and, I believe, most people would do.
But...the seller has philosphical problems with doing that. I wonder why he'd be willing to sell to a buyer knowing that's what the buyer will be doing since he thinks it's shady at least and probably illegal. By selling to someone who he knows would be titling it in this manner wouldn't he be aiding and abetting?
And I quote the seller...
"It has been an interesting "learn" to find out how different the states are in the "titling" department. SC has some pretty strict guidlines due to the number of shady transactions over the years. GA and SC had a bad history due to their lax laws and SC's newer and stricter laws.
I could have made some semi-legal...totally unethical and not so moral decisions and got a title through GA but I do not live my life that way. The laws, even though we sometimes disagree with them, can actually protect us in some cases and I choose to abide by them and go that route."
For him to take part in a transaction that would eventually involve "some semi-legal...totally unethical and not so moral decisions" would seem to be a violation of his moral code.
