Q. Someone abandoned a boat and trailer in the lot across from super bear.How would someone go about claiming it.I need a trailer.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Had to talk to one of our community service officers on this one. The officers in the white shirts are the experts on abandoned vehicles/property.
First you need to find the owner of the property. The property owner can request the title of an abandoned vehicle be transferred into his or her name after a period of 6 months has passed.
Here is the link to the DMV info on how to do that:
Once the property owner has claimed the trailer it belongs to them to dispose of as he or she wants, including selling it to you.
