Title for ATV required?

Reply
 
Looking at an ATV that will come with a bill of sale only. Should this concern me? The guy I am buying from appears to be upstanding, and I know where he lives if he proves otherwise. Based on the statutes, it looks like ATV's should have titles.

Anyone know anything about this??

If he has the original bill of sale he can file for the title but will have to pay the taxes. I think you only need a title to register it to use on public land.

I think family mite be right? that's a real grey area!!! I don't think u do need a title if u keep it on private land but sales taxes still have to be paid title or no title!!!! states love their tax money!!!! i personally wouldn't buy it without a title!!!! safe than sorry!!!!! u mite wind up having to pay the overdue taxes interest and penalties if sales taxes were never paid? call the dmv and ask them! just don't give any names!!! if he doesn't have the original bill of sale i wouldn't touch it for sure!!!!! mite have been bought out of state unless it was stolen???

if it is registered in his name then all he needs is the vin number. he can file for a lost title. no big deal
