Be sure that all liens have been removed from the title and that the seller signs off in the appropriate area. You should both sign your names and print them as well, and include the purchase price of the vehicle on the title. Include an odometer reading if the vehicle is 10 years old or newer. Then, you can take it to have the vehicle titled and registered in your own name.
The seller must provide a title, either the original or duplicate. If the seller cannot find the title, they will need to request a duplicate title. Do not buy a car when the seller can't produce a title.
Also see the Kansas Department of Revenue's FAQs for additional details about how to sell or buy a vehicle without a title in hand.
When it comes to registering and titling your vehicle, you will need a completed bill of sale. You can, if needed, conveniently download this document from our Bill of Sale page.
