Paperwork When Selling a Car in New Hampshire
Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
To sell your car, only one piece of paperwork is required: the title. 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 sale―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.
If the title is lost, apply for a duplicate before you advertise your vehicle.
You are not required to notify the DMV.
Although a bill of sale is not mandatory, DMV officials strongly suggest keeping one for your records. You can easily download a copy from our Bill of Sale page.
