    Seller's Requirements

    When selling your car, the title is the only required piece of paperwork. This should be signed over to the new owner and contain both signatures as well as the current odometer reading.

    If there is a lien on the vehicle, contact your loan office and ask how to proceed with the vehicle saleā€•the vehicle must be paid off in full before the loan office releases the title.

    It's also not a bad idea to fill out a bill of sale. This document lists the price paid and other terms and will protect both parties.

    Lost Titles

    If the title is lost, apply for a duplicate before you advertise your vehicle.

    Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability

    You are not required to notify the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

    Bill of Sale

    Although a bill of sale is not mandatory, NH DMV officials strongly suggest keeping one for your records. You can easily download a copy from our Bill of Sale page.
