When To Title Your Vehicle

Posted on August 23, 2012 at 2:35 PM Comments comments (78)

When to title your vehicle is just as important as not buying a vehicle without a title.  In this post, focus will be on the importance of titling your vehicle within a satisfactory or required amount of time and the consequences of not doing so.  For my readers who may be asking "can't I title my vehicle when I want"?  To answer that question, technically you can't, unless you don't mind the consequences that may occur.  One reason for this is because a title is a legal document and the terms and the disclosures on the title act accordingly as well.

When to Title Your Vehicle:
When buying your vehicle, I recommend titling your vehicle as soon as possible (either the same day or within a few days).  The sooner you get your vehicle titled, the sooner you may be able to get a hold of the seller of the vehicle in the event there is a problem with the title or vehicle record.  From a legal observation, the standard time-frame to get your vehicle titled is usually within 15-30 days (depending on the state), after you purchase the vehicle or relocate to another state.  Also, if you buy a vehicle and you have a lien on it, you can still get the vehicle titled, however the title won't be given to you (depending on the state) but will be mailed to the lien-holder.

Consequences Of Titling Your Vehicle Late:

  • Puts the seller title/vehicle record in a state of delay by showing that he/she still owns the vehicle, even after it was sold to you.
  • You may have to pay a penalty for titling your vehicle late 
  • You put yourself in jeopardy when you wait to title your vehicle late because in the event there is an issue with the titling transaction, there is a chance that the seller of the vehicle may be long gone, which will delay the titling process even further.
