VEHICLE TITLE TRANSFER INFORMATION 

  • Anyone buying a vehicle from a private seller needs to be sure they have the appropriate documents.  This not only includes the properly assigned previous title and signed Iowa application, but also a signed bill of sale from the previous owner verifying the sale date, the buyer's identity, vehicle information, and the purchase price. 
  • If a buyer is unsure of the documents required, please contact our office for more information.
  • Be aware that sellers who are not licensed or bonded often represent themselves on social media as "Dealers".  Before a buyer takes cash to a parking lot to pay for a vehicle, we recommend the buyer asks for verification of all the proper information.
