Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you. You have right idea to meet buyer here at DVA and put his name on tax forms as he is buying it and is new legal owner. I always insist on doing this in person to make sure you get it transferred and you get your money.You have the right idea to complete this and this sounds like a good way to sell it and get something for it.
