Kathy Pederson Minnesota State Patrol Trooper Kathy: I have bought a new car and want to sell my old one privately. How can I do this properly so it does not come back to haunt me? I have heard hor- ror stories about people get- ting in trouble for vehicles they sold in the past. When buying or selling a used vehicle always make a clean break, complete all the paper work, transfers and payments on the spot. This is good information for both Harvey and Inga Erickson, the buyer and seller to help Richard Rongstad. protect them from any future ...................... trouble. First, transfer the title immediately. The law states this needs to be done by the buyer within 10 days. I rec- ommend the buyer and seller go down to the Deputy Registrar together. If it's a weekend, wait for a business day to do the work. The sell- er needs to deliver clear title immediately. If you are the buyer make sure the title is in the name of the party you are buying from. Don't touch it if it is not in the seller's name or there is a long story OBITUARIES Official Weather Station -2004 Air Historic Date Temp (1 Air Temp Max Min Max Min 1-20 12 -7 22 1 1-21 26 11 23 ' 4 1-22 31 -8 27 6 1-23 20 -8 25 5 1-24 31 0 24 4 !1-25 20 -1 25 5 1-2(, 21 14 21 1 Rev.

Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. be in the new owner's name and the seller will be noted on the title as the lien holder. This can be done at time of purchase by just filling out an additional form when at the Deputy Registrar's. It is important that this is done right. We get hun- dreds of calls each year from people who cannot get clear title on a vehicle and there- fore cannot get current regis- tration, let alone ownership. They may even lose a vehicle or money they have put into it because they cannot prove they are the owners. If you are confused about this process, call the Deputy Registrar in your County and clarify the process before buying or selling. I had a friend who sold their car about four years ago; signed off on the title and retained that portion. They wished they had just gone in and done the full transfer at DVS. However, the seller provided clear title, retained their proof of sale and receipts. They later were receiving nasty-grams from the County Courthouse about many unpaid parking tickets their old vehicle was receiving. They had the proof of sale and when they presented it to the court they were off the hook, and they forced the title transfer. It would have been easier just to go down and transfer the title when the sale took place. If you have any ques- tions regarding traffic safety or traffic law, please write to Sgt. Kathy Pederson at MN State Patrol, PO Box 344B, Marshall, MN 56258. Sgt. Pederson will not offer advice on specific situations or real events, which involve law enforcement.
