Sorry just ignore that automatic pop up....be back in a few...
So, you will need to transfer the title to her by filing out the back of the car title after it is titled in your name. You will also need a bill of sale from called Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Trailer, or Boat (Form DMV-7-TR). It establishes the sale price, includes odometer disclosure information, and features the contact information and signatures of your buyer and you as the seller. The West Virginia DMV requires all bill of sale forms to be accompanied by a copy of the driver’s licenses of both the buyer and the seller.
MORE TO COME....
Here is the law regarding placing a lien on the title so you have a right to repossess in case of default.
At the link above is the certificate of title application that you would use to place a lien on the vehicle. However, it appears to apply only to a dealer sale; not private party. After much search efforts, I did not find one for a private party sale. But, bot***** *****ne is that you must get the title to show that you are a lienholder on it to be effective.
I would say at this point contact the WV DMV to see if they have such a form and a notice of lien form. I could find neither on the web.
Please assign a feedback rating for this answer so that JA will compensate me for my time. Thank you.
