I'm getting ready to purchase a used car from a private party. We've agreed on a price and my money transfer arrives soon. The car was originally purchased as a repossession from a bank. The present owner never transferred the car into his name. What documents do I need from the seller to get the car transferred into my name? The seller has offered to do the transfer with me holding the last 50,000 PHP of the sale price pending delivery of the completed documents that have been transferred into my name. I'm a little concerned about leaving the documents with him and would prefer to do the transfer myself but don't know what is necessary and want to make sure I don't need his help in the future, so hoping to get all necessary documents the first go around. I've also considered hiring an attorney to do the transfer and possibly draw up a sale contract between the seller and I. As I've never bought a used vehicle in the Philippines, and have been the victim of several small time scams, I'm somewhat distrustful. Hoping to rely on the cumulative expertise from the forum.
