Out of State Titles:
If you have purchased a vehicle that was titled in a different state, or inherited a vehicle from your parents who live in another state, there are certain things you need to do in order to title your car in Florida. The first document you will need is the letter from the previous owner (if you are buying from a dealer this will most likely be provided by the dealer) which contains the current mileage of the car, year model and vin number. Next you will need to present transfer of ownership documents (registration if your state requires it) and out of state title along with two pieces of proof that show Florida residency. The best forms of proof are utility bills, renters/lease agreement or anything else that has your name and address on it. Once you provide us all the named documents, we will do the rest for you.
