A Deed of Absolute Sale of a Motor Vehicle is used to document the transfer of ownership of a motor vehicle through a sale from the Buyer to the Seller. With this document, the Buyer and Seller can outline the terms and conditions of the sale, including a description of the motor vehicle to be sold and the purchase price.
This document can be used to record the sale of all types of land vehicles that must be registered with the Land Transportation Office such as passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks, etc.
What deed of sale to choose?
This document can be used as one of the following:
How to use this document
The user should enter all the information required to complete the document. Once the document is completed, the user should print at least four (4) copies of the document. If there are any attachments to the document, the attachments should be marked and attached to all copies of the document. Marking the attachments means identifying the attachments by writing the words "Annex "A", Annex "B", and so on, on the attachments.
The user should use the document as a guide to properly mark the attachments. For convenience, the attachments have been emphasized in bold. Once the document has been printed and the attachments attached, if any, the parties should review and, if everything is found to be correct, sign all original copies of the document.
Notarizing the document
The parties should notarize the document by acknowledging the same before a notary public. Notarization of the document converts the document from a private document to a public document so that it becomes admissible in court without the need for further proof of its authenticity. In a Deed of Absolute Sale, notarizing a document could be equivalent to constructive delivery so that ownership is transferred to the Buyer without the actual delivery of the Motor Vehicle.
To notarize the document, the parties must personally appear before a notary public to acknowledge that they have signed the Deed of Absolute Sale freely and voluntarily. They should also present a valid I.D. issued by an official agency bearing their photograph and signature such as a driver's license or a passport, among others. The notary public will usually require one original copy of the document to be left with the notary public.
Once notarized, the Seller and the Buyer should each keep at least one (1) copy of the notarized document.
The fourth copy can be used to register the transfer of ownership at the Land Transportation Office.
The user should note that the Land Transportation Office has other documentary requirements to register the transfer of ownership of a motor vehicle aside from the original Deed of Sale.
The Civil Code of the Philippines governs sales of motor vehicles in the Philippines as well as the rules and regulations of the Land Transportation Office.
