Gather your maintenance records to share with prospective buyers. A well maintained car shows that you took care of your car, and remedied known problems. Having the records helps buyers understand the maintenance history of the car, and helps improve the value of the car.
Obtain a lien payoff letter from your lender. The lien payoff is usually good for a limited period of time, so order the payoff when you’re ready to transact on your car.
To remove a lien during the duplicate title process, you must also submit:
- A lien clearance letter or a lien contract letter that says the lien has been paid in full.
You will need your title, Bill of Sale, and a payoff letter from your lender (if you have a loan). The Bill of Sale serves as a record of necessary information, including the date of sale, price, vehicle information, and names/addresses for both the seller and the buyer.
