Procedure when purchasing used car from private party
Plenty of info on bringing cars down, but how does it work when you're purchasing from a private party?
I've gone to bmv.vi.gov/ but the page won't open and can't find anything about this.
Been awhile since I've bought a car in VI so don't remember all the steps. Best to check with BMV, directly, but you and seller should go to BMV and have them run a lien check on vehicle and you have to go to a notary public to transfer registration from one name to the other before you can register in your name.
The seller & buyer must go to a notary public. In presence of notary public the seller has the title transferred over to the buyer. Assuming it it is a free & clear title (no liens) the buyer takes possesion upon payment to seller im presemce of the notary public. The buyer is then responsible to go to the BMV to obtain a new title & new plates.
