I just bought a boat but the seller lost the title. I want to transfer the title into my name and get a decal. What do I need to do? This answer has been viewed 3831 times and was last updated on 08/05/2019.
The quickest way to get the title in your name is to contact the seller and arrange for them to meet you at our office. Both of you will need to present your valid (unexpired) state-issued licenses/ID cards or valid (unexpired) passports. (This includes any co-sellers and/or co-purchasers.)
The seller will apply for a duplicate title at the same time it is transferred into your name, and at that time you will be issued a registration and plate/decal. Note: Double title fees will apply (1 for seller, 1 for buyer).
