Selling a car

Recommended Posts

I'm considering giving a car to my gardener. What paperwork has to be done (by me) to ensure that it's done properly?

TIA

If it is a Mexican plated car, just sign the Factura over to him.

Thanks for the info.

Yes, it has Jalisco plates. Then he has to register it? Am I liable until he does that?

Better to make sure he transfers ownership to his name at the registration office in Chapala, go with him if not inconvenient

I would highly suggest that you go with  the gardener to the  recaudadora to verify that he pays the taxes and fees and that the transfer is completed. If not you will will be legally liable until that takes place.

Go with him.  Do not take a chance by not going.

Very good and necessary advice. The recaudadora will be looking for a fair market price for the car for tax purposes. They have a list of values.

Yes.  As such, you may have to foot that bill in order to make the "gift".

Also it has to have a new sticker ..doesn’t matter if it has a current one, you still have to get a new one..

Taxes are not as high as the IVA. They are on a sliding scale with a max of I believe 7%.

Also they will check and make sure there are no outstanding traffic tickets like those sneaky photo radar ones.
