Yes, we can buy your car without a title in many circumstances (but not all). You must demonstrate ownership by submitting a photo ID that corresponds to your current (non-expired) registration and/or insurance. Offers for vehicles without titles will be lower, and we make no guarantees that we will be able to purchase the vehicle without the title.
Vehicle titles can change over time due to updates in design, security features, or information layout. As a result, your Massachusetts car title might not look exactly like the ones you see pictured online.
There could be a few reasons for this:
1. The title is older: If your vehicle is older or the title was issued a while ago, it may be in a format that the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) no longer uses.
2. The title is from a different state: If you bought your car in another state, the title will have been issued by that state and will follow their design, not Massachusetts’.
3. The title is a salvage title: If your vehicle was previously considered a total loss by an insurance company, it might have a salvage title, which can look different from a regular title.
4. It’s a duplicate or replacement title: If you’ve replaced your title due to damage or loss, the replacement might look different from the original.
5. The title has a lienholder listed: If your vehicle is financed, the title might include information about the lienholder, which could change the appearance of the title compared to one without a lien.
6. Updates or changes in design: Like all documents, titles can undergo periodic updates or redesigns to enhance security or improve clarity of information.
If your title doesn’t look like the ones you’ve seen online, and you’re concerned about its validity, you can contact the Massachusetts RMV directly to confirm. They’ll be able to guide you on the next steps.
If you’re selling your vehicle and a potential buyer is questioning the legitimacy of the title, they can also verify it with the RMV. It’s essential that the title is legitimate for the sale to be legal and the vehicle’s ownership to be correctly transferred.
In Massachusetts, license plates stay with the owner, not the vehicle. When you sell your car, you should remove the license plate. Here’s what you should do:
If you’re buying a new car: You can typically transfer your old plate to your new car. There might be a fee associated with this, and you’ll have to complete the transfer within a certain period after selling your old car and buying the new one.
If you’re not buying a new car: If you won’t have a new vehicle to which the plate can be transferred, you should cancel the registration and turn in the plates to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).
Here are the steps to cancel your registration:
Online: You can cancel your registration online at the Massachusetts RMV’s website.
In person: If you prefer, you can also cancel your registration in person at an RMV Service Center.
Once you’ve cancelled the registration, you should destroy the plates by cutting them in half or scratching off the numbers. The RMV does not require you to physically turn in cancelled plates.
Remember that the vehicle should not be driven with the plate once they’re cancelled. It’s the buyer’s responsibility to register the vehicle in their name and obtain a new plate.
When you sell your car in Massachusetts, you need to take several steps to manage your auto insurance appropriately. Here’s what you need to do:
Notify your insurance company: Inform your insurance company as soon as you’ve sold your vehicle. They will guide you through the process of either adjusting or canceling your policy.
Cancel your insurance policy: If you’re not replacing your vehicle, you will likely need to cancel your auto insurance policy. Make sure to do this after you’ve sold the vehicle and transferred ownership, not before. If you cancel your insurance before the vehicle is sold, you may be financially responsible if an accident occurs.
Transfer your insurance policy: If you’re buying a new vehicle to replace the one you sold, you might be able to transfer your existing insurance policy to your new car. Your insurance company can assist you with this.
Return your license plates: In Massachusetts, you should cancel your registration and return your plates to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) if you’re not transferring them to a new vehicle. It’s important to do this before canceling your insurance because Massachusetts law requires all registered vehicles to be insured.
Get proof of insurance cancellation: Once you cancel your insurance, request a receipt or confirmation letter. You may need proof of cancellation if there’s any dispute about the policy later on.
Keep your insurance if you still have a registered vehicle: Even if you sell one vehicle, if you still own and register another vehicle, you must keep it insured. In Massachusetts, it’s against the law to have a registered vehicle without active liability insurance.
Avoid insurance lapses: If you plan to purchase another vehicle in the near future, discuss your options with your insurance company to avoid coverage lapses. In many cases, a lapse in coverage can lead to higher premiums.
Yes, there are several steps you should take after selling your car in Massachusetts to ensure a smooth and legal transfer of ownership. Here is what you should do:
Complete the Bill of Sale: Both the seller and the buyer should complete a Bill of Sale. While it’s not necessary to submit this document to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), it’s a good practice to have it for your records. The Bill of Sale should include the purchase price, the date of sale, a description of the vehicle, and the names and signatures of the buyer and seller.
Assign the Certificate of Title: As the seller, you should sign over the Certificate of Title to the buyer. Complete the Assignment of Title section on the back of the title by filling in the buyer’s name and address, the odometer reading at the time of sale, the sale price, and the date of sale. Both you and the buyer should sign this section.
Remove your license plates: In Massachusetts, license plates stay with the owner, not the vehicle. Therefore, you should remove your plates when you sell your car. You can then cancel your registration or transfer the plates to another vehicle.
Cancel your auto insurance or transfer it to your new vehicle: Notify your insurance company of the sale, and follow their instructions for either cancelling your policy or transferring it to a new vehicle. Remember, it’s crucial not to cancel your insurance before you’ve transferred ownership and cancelled your registration.
Keep a copy of the title and Bill of Sale: It’s a good idea to keep a copy of the completed title and Bill of Sale for your records. This can serve as proof that you’ve sold the vehicle and are no longer responsible for it.
Notify the Massachusetts RMV: There is no requirement in Massachusetts to notify the RMV that you’ve sold your vehicle. However, regulations may change. Always verify the most current rules with the RMV.
File a release of liability: While Massachusetts does not require sellers to file a formal release of liability after selling a vehicle, doing so can protect you if the vehicle is involved in an accident or incurs penalties before the buyer transfers the title and registration. Check with the RMV about any release of liability process.
