Default How does a private party selling a car setup a payment plan for a buyer?

I'm selling my car and I just got a guy offering his dsm and $6k for my accord, but he doesn't have the cash. He said he could do it if I would take payments, but I wouldn't do that. However, if I were to have a solid upperhand, I would be more than willing to do some sort of payment plan. So, does anyone know how a private party can setup some sort of safe payment plan for a buyer?

Point him towards a lending institution and be done with it.

Sounds like a bad idea. Can he not get a loan or something? Do you know the guy on a personal level?

Yeah it is called a bank, tell him to go there and get a loan. If he can't get a loan then find someone else that can.

Good point, but even at a personal level, I would never do it..

I wouldnt do it based on the fact that if he cant get a loan, he doesnt have good credit which means he does questionable things or he is irresponsible. Then, from there, you have to hang onto the title if you're gonna do it, and get it in writing from him that you want all payments in cheque and he has to sign a piece of paper that says, I do not own this car until I pay the 6k I owe in full.

Maybe the kid is too young/has no credit history to speak of therefore making him unable to secure a loan? I would check into this first. I have done this sort of thing before, but I knew both my buyers on a personal level so it was a bit different. I'm sure a lawyer could draft up a contract that would legally bind him to finish paying you. look into it. .......or get ahold of me on aim.

only way i know of to really secure yourself in a private party loan deal is using a Chatel MNortgage-- basically a form you file with the DMV thay says you are the lienholder and the title to the vehicle willnot be released to the buyer until said payments are complete-- he is able to registerit just like if here were to finance through a dealership and if he defaults the document allows for legal collection/recovery methods

thats exactly the type of thing i was wondering if it existed. basically, i keep the title til he pays in full, but he still register and all that jazz, correct? would it be smart for me to get his ssn? ssn = gotcha by the *****, correct?

send him to the bank. If he can't get it from there, it's not a smart idea to set up a payment plan.

Make sure you draft up a legal document and set it at XXX amount that he has to pay each month if you decide to ignore this advice.

bottom line are you this desperate to sell a ******* accord??

its honda plenty of LEGIT buyers will come with cash and easy transaction

you really want to have to deal with the possible missed/late payments etc, plus from 99% of buyers you could have all the cash NOW instead of gay payment plan

going by what this b16clutch feller is suggesting, if hes late making a payment, i can reposses my car. just sent the guy an email askin him how long it would take him to pay it off. if he says anything over a year, he can promptly expletive off.

Do it but keep the title. If he misses a payment, report the car stolen.

three fifty? he better triple those payments.

ive done stuff like this before. the seller always kept the title till they got all of their money.

at least half was given to the seller up front. two weeks later he received the balance in full. second time i gave the seller a deposit to let him know i was serious. the remaining balance was paid with two separate money orders.

payment schedule never stretched longer than three payments.

haha that will do you a lot of good.

what you want is a legal contract signed by him and a witness also you keep the title, make sure you have all of his current information ie: home address phone number ect. and keep a set of keys, make him agree that if he misses a single payment you get the car back.

you both get a copy of the contract and then pray to your god that you don't get scammed.

but I wouldn't ever do it. even for a friend. it just makes a complicated situation that could turn very ugly.
