What precautions should be taken when buying or selling a car?

The purchase or sale of a vehicle in any circumstances can be intimidating, misleading and worrying. This includes a major transaction in terms of money, and it is done at high speed. Achieving a profitable and beneficial result requires careful research and insight. Before any action is taken, it is important to read the various documents and precautions before buying or selling a car.

The prerequisites

There are strict regulations for land motor vehicles. Indeed, as soon as they are put into service, certain documents are assigned to them as properties and information about the vehicle. When selling a car, the first document requested by the buyer corresponds to the non-pledge certificate. The latter is a document that verifies the administrative status of the car and is relatively useful in order to avoid a scam regarding the legal status of the vehicle. It is possible to obtain the certificate of non-pledge in pdf via the online download or visit the town hall. The vehicle registration document is then the second document to possess and must be up to date.

What precautions should be taken?

Before starting any car sale or purchase procedures, it is important to be cautious. Indeed, it is necessary to know the history of the car, i.e. the date of entry into service, the number of owners, whether there have been any major repairs carried out, its administrative situation and its technical sheet. It is then essential to know that only the owner of the vehicle can sell his property. In the case of a move, the vehicle’s registration document must also include the change of address and indicate the current address of the owner and in the case where the car exceeds 4 years of use, it is imperative to carry out a roadworthiness test in order to provide proof of passing the roadworthiness test to the buyer.
