Reporting protects you from being held liable for towing charges or civil and criminal liabilities incurred by the new owner.
For information about sellers reports and how it protects you, please visit the Washington State Department of Licensing information page.
When selling a vehicle, it is important to remove license plates for the vehicle. Removing your license plates encourages the new owner to transfer ownership. Leaving the plates increases your risk of impound costs, traffic infractions, Good to Go! tickets, and other liabilities.
