Step 6 – Transfer ownership and deliver vehicle
Buyer submits a bank draft for the final sale price either co-payable to the bank and vehicle owner or
directly to the vehicle owner if the vehicle is lien free
Seller pays off loan (if applicable)
Buyer requests a receipt from the bank to prove there is no loan owing on the vehicle and the payment
for the vehicle was received.
Buyer and Seller meet at the local vehicle licensing office to transfer ownership of the vehicle and pay
any additional fees.
Buyer affixes new plates to the vehicle to close the deal
Note: Even though the vehicle may be paid for, the vehicle remains registered in the seller’s name until the transfer has been completed by the licensing office.
