Can You Sell Your Car Without Its Title?

Selling a car is normally quite a straightforward process. Once you’ve agreed on a price, you create a bill of sale and the sign over the title to the new owner after receiving payment. You then fill out the Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability, which is used to notify the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that you’ve sold your vehicle. After that, you’re done with paperwork unless you’ve got loads of maintenance records to hand across to the new owner. If not, pass the keys over and you’re done. With the title, selling the car is a simple process. Without it, you’re complicating things unnecessarily.
