“Verifying the vehicle’s history and legal compliance is critical,” the guide states, recommending checks for any outstanding loans, liens or other issues as well as obtaining a comprehensive history report on past ownership, accidents and maintenance.

Clear agreement on terms and conditions is listed as the next crucial step, with the guide advising sellers to accurately assess vehicle condition and market value while buyers should research fair pricing. Payment methods and warranties must also be addressed in the agreement.

For transferred vehicles, the guide instructs on the need to update insurance coverage to the new owner’s information to ensure continuous protection. A vehicle inspection before transfer is also recommended.

Maintaining comprehensive records throughout the process, including transfer forms, agreements, receipts and correspondence with authorities, is listed as the final key step to ensure a smooth transfer and legal protection.

“While complex, adhering to these steps can simplify the ownership transfer for buyers and sellers,” the automotive association stated in the 25-page guide.
