Occasionally you may need to change the registered ownership on a car.
This is referred to as changing the title.
For example, if you sell a car, you’ll want to make sure your name is removed from the title, and the person buying the car is going want to put their name on the title. Perhaps you need to add a spouse or a relative to the title, or maybe you just need to remove your name from the car title altogether.
The process for getting this done is slightly different from state to state, however the fundamental aspects of the transaction are the same wherever you live.
Before you can proceed however, you either have to own the vehicle outright, have permission from the lien holder of the vehicle to change it, or live in a state in which you hold title to the car even if you have an outstanding loan against it.
