If you do not transfer the title immediately, both the old car owner and the new person will be fined

Even though we know we have to transfer the car’s title after buying or selling it, the situation of using a car without its owner is still very common. Below are cases where you can be fined and held responsible for selling a car without changing the owner’s name.

The previous owner was fined for not revoking the vehicle’s registration and license plate

According to Clause 4, Article 6 of Circular 24/2023/TT-BCA, when selling a vehicle, the vehicle owner must retain the vehicle registration certificate and license plate, then submit it to the vehicle registration agency for recovery procedures. . The car owner absolutely will not hand over the vehicle registration and license plate to the buyer.

The time limit for the vehicle owner to complete the recall procedure is 30 days from the date of making the purchase and sale documents. In case the vehicle owner is past the 30-day deadline and does not carry out the recovery procedures or hand over the vehicle registration certificate and license plate to the buyer to complete the recovery procedures, the vehicle registration agency will issue a penalty decision before proceeding. against the vehicle owner for not carrying out recovery procedures.

For failure to carry out procedures to revoke vehicle registration and license plates, the former owner will be subject to administrative penalties as follows:

– Failure to revoke registration papers and license plates for motorbikes: Fine from 800,000 – 2 million VND for individuals, from 1.6 – 4 million VND for organizations (according to point e, Clause 5, Article 30 of Decree 100/ 2019/ND-CP).

– Failure to revoke registration papers and license plates of cars, tractors, and specialized motorbikes: Fine from 2 – 4 million VND for individuals, from 4 – 8 million VND for organizations (according to point c, clause 7 Article 30 of Decree 100/2019/ND-CP).

If the vehicle violates, the previous owner will be responsible if the title is not transferred

An additional risk when selling a vehicle without transferring the title immediately is that if the vehicle owner does not carry out recovery procedures after transferring ownership of the vehicle, he/she will be responsible before the law for violations related to that vehicle (according to Point b Clause 4 Article 6 Circular 24/2023/TT-BCA).

Clause 4, Article 39 of Circular 24/2023/TT-BCA stipulates that if a vehicle has a 5-digit license plate registered before August 15, 2023 but has not yet completed the recovery procedure, that license plate number will be the default identification plate number. of the vehicle owner, that is, the person whose name is on the vehicle registration.

When the vehicle causes an accident or is involved in a civil or criminal case, the competent authority will contact the vehicle owner. At this time, the person invited to the authorities to clarify and resolve the case is not the person using the car but the former owner (the person whose name is on the registration paper managed by the system).

Therefore, to avoid being fined or getting into trouble when the vehicle causes an accident, the vehicle owner needs to seriously comply with the procedures for revoking the vehicle registration and license plate.

This procedure is also very simple. The vehicle owner first needs to declare the registration revocation declaration and vehicle license plate on the public service portal. Then, go to the vehicle registration agency where you reside, provide the online application code, submit the license plate and vehicle registration along with a number of other documents including:

– Declaration of revocation of vehicle registration and license plate.

– Vehicle owner’s documents: Present citizen identification card, passport or use level 2 electronic identification account.

– Copy of vehicle ownership transfer document.

After checking the valid documents, the vehicle registration agency issues a certificate of revocation of vehicle registration and license plate.

The new buyer was also fined for not transferring the vehicle’s title immediately afterward

According to Point c, Clause 4, Article 6 of Circular 24/2023/TT-BCA, after the seller carries out recovery procedures, the buyer must carry out procedures to register the vehicle’s title according to regulations.

If this procedure is not completed, the new owner will be fined for not registering the vehicle title (to transfer the vehicle owner’s name in the Vehicle Registration Certificate to his or her name) according to regulations when buying a car or motorbike.

Penalties for failure to transfer vehicle title are prescribed as follows:

– Failure to transfer motorbike title: Fine from 400,000 – 600,000 VND for individuals, from 800,000 VND – 1.2 million VND for organizations (according to point a, clause 4, Article 30 of Decree 100/2019/ND-CP).
