Selling a car? Protect yourself and complete a ‘sold notice’
Thinking of selling or trading in your car?
After agreeing to a price, one of the most important things a seller can do is complete a “sold notice” with the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division.
WHAT’S A SOLD NOTICE?
Wait. What’s a “sold notice” and why is it important?
A “sold notice” ensures that MVD and law enforcement have a record of the vehicle’s current owner.
Submitting a “sold notice” promptly can protect the seller from liability if the car is involved in a crash or crime, is ticketed, or becomes abandoned, which carries a hefty fee.
There is no cost to complete a “sold notice” and it can be done online at AZMVDNow.gov.
EASY TO SUBMIT
Submitting a “sold notice” is easy. Simply, log-in to your account at AZMVDNow.gov and:
• Click on “submit a sold notice”
• Select the vehicle you’ve sold
• Enter the buyer’s information
• Enter the date the vehicle was sold
Additional steps to follow when selling or trading in a car include removing the license plate and transferring the title to the buyer.
It’s a free service and can be done at AZMVDNow.gov.
