There are many reasons why you might need to transfer a vehicle title or get a new one. Maybe you just bought a new car, maybe you sold your old one, or you gave away a car as a gift to someone. Regardless of what has happened with the vehicle in your life, it is crucial that you transfer the vehicle title! Before you drive away into the Orlando sunset, make sure you have everything in order. You can do this by contacting American Roadside Assistance of Orlando today!
The Basics of Vehicle Title Transfers
The title of your car is the official document that proves who the car really belongs to. It also links to the DMV’s official records. In fact, many of the DMV offices and government agencies will only recognize the title for vehicle ownership. In other words, if you don’t have the title in your name, the car can’t legally be proven as yours! Once you get that title transfer, the vehicle ownership change becomes official.
Of course, this process is simple enough, but it’s important that you do your best to make this title change official within ten days of the transfer. Going the same day is never a bad thing! However, if that simply isn’t an option for you, or if you don’t have the time to go to the DMV and wait for your title transfer, come to us instead!
When is a Vehicle Title Transfer Necessary?
A title is necessary when the legal owner of the vehicle changes to someone else. This usually happens when one of the following events occur:
- You sell or buy a brand new vehicle. In this situation, the dealership should handle most of the paperwork for you.
- You sell or buy a used vehicle.
- You give your vehicle as a gift or a donation, or you receive one.
- You inherit a vehicle or leave a vehicle for a member of your family.
- You need to change the name of the vehicle’s owner.
- You are changing the ownership from one family member to the next.
- You finish paying off a car loan.
Knowing this information ahead of time can keep you feeling informed and prepared when taking over the ownership of a vehicle or passing that ownership to someone else.
What are the Perks of Vehicle Title Transfers?
Obviously, the biggest perk is just being able to register your car and know that you are being compliant with the law. Aside from that, though, there are many other benefits! For example, if you were the original owner, transferring the title absolves you of all responsibility. If the car gets into an accident or a traffic violation, you cannot be held accountable. If you are the car buyer, transferring the title guarantees that the car is yours and cannot be declared as stolen.
