Really you just need to ensure you get the title and that it's signed over to you from the person shown as the owner on title and that the title transfer is notarized as required by Oklahoma law.
Here is an example:
You need to ensure no lien is recorded on the title. If it is, you need a lien release.
If the vehicle not more than 9 years old, you need an odometer statement (which is usually part of the title).
Finally, you need purchase price documentation - selling price listed on the title assignment (when block provided), a purchase contract, bill of sale or a Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price (OTC Form 722-1)
Could I provide additional assistance? If not, I would be grateful for a positive rating for my assistance. Thanks!
No, possession AND title is key. Then, of course, you want to get the lien release statement once he has received it.
