Title transfers and notary's

A question for all you peeps who live in States that require a Notory to witness signatures between the seller and new owner of a motorcycle. I live in Nc and a notory is necessary to witness the Title transfer

What do you do if the buyer is out of State and wants the bike shipped and it means that the buyer and seller never meet. How do you handle the Title transfer and notary signature?????

I am sure I am not the only one who has this problem

Been there, done that. The notary is only there to witness a signature, so the answer's easy:
One notary for each signature.

Are you certain the buyer has to have their signature notarized, and not just the seller?

I guess every state could be different, but Ohio requires the seller only - meaning the seller signs off in the presence of a notary, and sends you the "open" title with the bike, you fill it in upon receipt of it and off you go to the title dept...

I bought a bike from a guy in NC and didn't realize that a notary was needed being that I lived here in GA. When I took the title up to the tag office they informed me that because NC requires it that I needed to have it notarized. I took it to my wife and had her notarize it. Wasn't a big deal. Georgia doesn't require the titles to be notarized for their titles but being it was a NC title, they have to follow the rules.

Something told me when I saw this thread you'd be along with some professional advise sooner or later.

NC sucks for tag stuff, bunch a nazis!

Find a local notary, ask them if they will notarize the title with your signature and print the new owners name and address on the title. Or you could do a limited POA.

Absolutely, for Maryland. It's what they base your taxes on, within reason. The "reason" part is that they look values in references like the Bluebook when they can. If you have a notarized Bill of Sale for something extremely out of line ($500 for a newer vehicle, for example) they use the Bluebook value.

The limited Power of Attorney that somebody suggested will also work in Md.

But because these rules vary by State, you really need to call the motor vehicle (DMV/MVA) for the State where it's going to get registered.

Up date. Title can be notorized without buyer being present (NC).

I went to my local registration office yesterday. They notorized the fact that it was my signature as the seller with the buyers details filled in but buyers signature was not required.
