I sold my car. What do I need to do?
The first step is to provide the buyer with the title to the car. You will need to sign the title in front of a notary and have your signature notarized. After that, we recommend that you come into the Tag Agency and fill out a Notice of Transfer. It costs $10, but it notifies the state that you sold the vehicle and limits your personal liability with the vehicle. To fill complete a Notice of Transfer we will need the tag number or VIN along with the name and address of the purchaser.
