My father died without a will and I inherited his property. His estate was not probated. Do I have legal title?

The property is still in your father's estate and his estate must be probated. You are not the legal owner.In order for title to real property to pass to the heirs-at-law in an intestate estate (no Will) or under the terms of a Will, the estate must be probated. Title is passed to the heirs by the probate process. You cannot "title" the property in your name until the estate has been probated. You cannot sell or mortgage the property until the estate has been probated. Until you probate the estate you only have what is called equitable title.You should consult with an attorney who specializes in probate who can review your situation and explain your options.

Who is in charge of an estate if deceased is not on title?

On the title to what? If the deceased is not on the title, they probably have no interest in it, so the estate will have nothing to do with that property. If the individual inherited the property from another estate, then the executor, appointed by the court, will take charge of the interests and follow the will or the law in the execution of their duties and the distribution of the assets of the estate. The nearest of blood kin followed by the nearest of marital kin followed by siblings. The probate court can appoint anyone that may apply for the task, as well.

How did you get possession of the truck? If it was devised to you by will and the will was allowed then obtain a certified copy of the will and decree and submit it to the Registry of Motor Vehicles to retitle the truck in your name. If that doesn't apply, you will need proof that the title passed to you through some legal process. You would need a bill of sale from whoever inherited the title to the vehicle legally.
