Selling a car can be a bit of a hassle especially if there is something wrong with it or if it has little or no MOT. It is not fair to trick someone in to buying a car that you know has a fault with it without telling them upfront, but unfortunately many people still do.
When you come to sell your car you need to make sure that you no only get the car ready for sale in terms of washing and cleaning it, but also that you get all your paperwork ready. You will need to have the logbook also known as the V5 and the MOT. If you have any other documentation such as handbooks, receipts for work that has been done or service history, remember to find that out too. Once you have sold the car make sure that you fill the log book out with the new owner’s details and get them to sign it. Never give the buyer the complete log book for them to send off as if they don’t it’s you who will get the fine. If you are selling the car to a trader then you can give them the log book, but make sure that you complete the yellow part of the V5 with their details and send it off to DVLA.
