If you're looking to sell a car but the owner's name and the name listed in the car registration book isn't a match, can it still be sold? Let's find out!

There are many reasons why one would be in this situation such as an unfinished car transfer process or maybe another of a family member is using the car, but the name of the car owner has not been changed in the registration book. When the decision was made to sell the car, you might encounter an issue with car dealers not wanting to purchase your vehicle.

The reason why this might happen is because the dealer might be unwilling to take the risk. There might be suspicion that it may be a stolen car or it could be sold without the real owner's consent. If that's the case, the car dealer might have lialibilities to face!

You should really try and get your car registration book updated to reduce the problem of rejection in the purchase and for fairness and transparency in the car selling process.
