This information must be updated in the DMV's records within 10 days, and the California Certificate of Title should be transferred to the new owner.
Common reasons for a change in ownership include sale, gift, donation, adding or deleting an owner's name, inheritance, or the satisfaction of a lien (full payment of a car loan). There are different categories for title transfers:
Simple Transfers: In this type of transfer, the seller signs the title to release ownership, and the buyer also signs. The buyer takes the title to the DMV office to apply for a certificate of title with their name and address. Additionally, the buyer should apply for vehicle registration during this process.
Transfers Involving Lenders: If you financed the car and are about to pay off the car loan, it's time to obtain the title or update it to remove the name of the lienholder.
