I have someone coming to buy my truck. Is there anything that I need to know other than to get a cashier's check, give them a bill of sale, fill out the long form (which he is bringing) for the state, and removing the license plates? I have never sold a car outright before and want to make sure all my bases are covered. I thought I may have to take a photo of his driver's license. How do I know the cashier's check is real?
I just pulled this webpage up and it looks to have some helpful information, like keeping a copy of the buyer's name, number, and address. The last point in the section looks important too, especially if you don't know the buyer. http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/title-transfers.php#Sell
Thank you, Chocokat96, I appreciate the link. This guy works a lot and is going to take off Monday to meet me at a bank with my bank across the street. I hope he goes to register it right away. I guess I will have to take his word on it.
If you really want to save yourself some grief go to the license bureau with the buyer and transfer the title there. We had a problem recently when our buyer failed to go to the bureau and it took some time to straighten the problem out.
There is a form you can fill out at the courthouse or even online when u sell a car....I think it is called release of liability. I did it about 10 years ago and then u had to go to the courthouse to do it.
