Iím looking at a boat to buy and the seller has transferred the papers on the boat to himself, but he has not transferred the papers on the motor, so he tells me in Texas you donít have to Title a motor

Also if you were doing this shame on you I am also finding, Lots of people just take their plates to the courthouse and have them renewed or title it as a homemade trailer, which is illegal and lie.
I am running into this more and more, come on guys title this stuff

in tx motors have to be titled to be able to be sold legally a lot of folks don't do because game wardens don't check the motor serial number on a lake stop.the reason some don't do it is because they don't want to pay taxes an registration on them.

It's pretty simple,
Boat-title
Motor- title
Trailer- title or bill of sale depending on gvwr.

I just bought a river boat, motor, and trailer. It had been sold, sold again and no transfer of tities. Since I knew the original owner, I bought the boat. motor, and trailer because I could get his signatures. It did come at a price to the second owner. I paid 1/2 of his asking price because I had to get the titles and bill of sale.

Does the trailer have a title? Depends on GVWR. May just need a Bill of Sale.

Iím sorry , what I meant to say was he did transfer the title from the previous owner to himself and do the proper paperwork on the boat only nothing on the motor

The last two boats I purchased the owners lied about paperwork on the trailer, so call your insurance company and tell them you got a homemade trailer, theyíre gonna want lots of pictures and they will see this is not a homemade trailer , There in lies the problem
Next tell them that you want your motor insured, the insurance company will not ensure a motor that is not in your name

When you're buying an older used boat, a lot will be titled homemade trailer.. doesn't make them illegal. Boat and motor need a title though.

I agree some trailers are homemade , But what Iím finding over and over again is the person not doing the proper paperwork and just filling out a form saying itís a homemade trailer at the tax registration office

You run into the untitled motors all the time that they try and tell you that you don't need it. They can't even sell it that way. No title then no sale to me

Actually it's "^^^^^this", plus a had written bill of sale with both the boat I'd number, TX#, and a specific dollar amount and the engine serial number or TX#, with its specific dollar amount. Additionally a specific dollar amount for the trailer is needed on this same bill of sale.

So

Here it is.

Signed title of boat
Signed title of motor
A written bill of sale for all three with dollar amounts for each
Numbers on the bill of sale matching the boat and motor to the sale


Simple....yeh right.

when I went to the TPWD to do all this a while back, I told the girl there" I read the boat registration "matrix"" and then I said screw it.....and got all the papers and just made the drive. She said their process is confusing for their own employees....and almost impossible for a regular person to comprehend.

The reason Texas Parks and wildlife has gotten tougher is due to the amount of fake documents turned in by fisherman
