Every state is different, so make sure you learn the specific procedure you need to follow.

A crucial piece of information is the vehicle identification number (VIN) Check the VIN on the vehicle’s windshield to ensure it matches to VIN written down on the document.

Write a Bill of Sale

Along with the title, having a bill of the sale is the best way to ensure you have every document that can prove the buyer’s ownership of the vehicle. This document is written by the seller and documents how much was paid for the vehicle as well as the date of transaction and signatures from both parties. Both parties should have a copy of the document.

Ensure to Compare the Odometer Reading

Make sure to double check to ensure the mileage number on the document matches the number on the odometer. The number should not be lower that the number stated in the title. If the number happens to be lower, it could be a sign that the odometer has been tampered with. If you are the buyer, reconsider purchasing the vehicle unless you are given documented proof that explains the number one the odometer being lower.

Check for Liens

You can check if the vehicle has a lien by checking with the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state. If the car happens to have a lien, the lien must be paid before continuing the title transfer process.

Review Everything Again and Again
