Hi,

Sorry, i am not a local. That's why I'm not sure what's the procedure to sell the car as a private seller.

Please enlighten me.

I'm not sure what you want to know, if you need to know how to market the car to sell it or how to actually go about changing ownership. If the latter is the case, most times you just need to sign the title over to the person who buys the car and then hand it to them. You will probably want to take down their information and make sure that you DON'T take a personal check, as the person can bounce the check to you and then get the car for free if you have signed the title into their name.

Yeah, thats pretty much it as long as you have the title to the car and there is no lean on it.

* Just sign the back of the title and hand it over. Remember to take your plates with you.

* Whoever buys it from you will take that title down to the DMV, fill out a few forms, pay for a plate and registration and its over.


As for actually selling/advertising... put it on Craigslist(craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums), the newspaper or park it where it will be seen. Some places dont allow it on private property so make sure you are legal or your car may be towed.

You can sign over the title anywhere; a restaurant, your kitchen table, the County Clerk's office, or a Notary Public (available at banks, title offices (for real estate) or wherever. I would sign it over in front of a Notary Public, just to be safe.

Just make sure you get cash, a money order or some other form of legal payment. DO NOT TAKE A PERSONAL CHECK. People bounce (write phony checks) all the time.

All states have different rules/laws about their paperwork. The titles I've seen have the info. on the back where you sign. And there should be instructions on the back. If in doubt, call your state's motor vehicle dept.

On the back of the title there should be a section that says "Seller" or "Transferor"
Fill that part out and and have the person that is buying to fill out the section that says "Buyer" or Transferee"
In my state a title has to be notarized. The best way is to go together to the DMV or a notary public and do the transfer. That way if you have any questions they can can be answered by someone who knows. The buyer will have go to DMV to get the title made into his or her name anyway.

DO NOT DO THIS UNTILL YOU HAVE CASH IN HAND OR A CLEARED BANK DRAFT OR MONEY ORDER. DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS.

yes, on the back of the title under seller... most places require it to be notarized. You can go to whatever bank you have an account at and they will do it for free.
