Legal Information Tips : How to Legally Sell a Car


You’ve decided it’s time to sell your car
and you’ve never sold a car before, so you ask: “How do I legally sell my car?” Hello,
I’m Robert Todd, and I’m here to answer the question: How to legally sell a car. This
is going to vary from state to state, so you may want to check the statutes in your state
to determine the correct procedure for selling a car in your state. In some states, it’s
as simple as looking at the back of the title to your car, which indicates whose signatures
are necessary and what blanks and what dates and whether there are any questions regarding
the amount of the sale, and it can be completed. Sometimes it’s notarized; sometimes it’s simply
witnessed or otherwise. And it’s that simple of a process. In other states, you may consider
simply trading in your car to have the facility from whom you are now obtaining another car
handle the transfer of title from your car to someone else. You may want to consider
paying off the car if there’s an outstanding lien and having the bank transfer the title
of the car. And there’s also completing a bill of sale in some states. But in any event,
no matter how you do it, keep a copy of the paperwork so that you can demonstrate at a
later date that you have sold the car. I’m Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
