Post Subject: Selling paperwork

I am (hopefully!) selling my narrowboat and wanted some advise on the correct paperwork needed to legally hand over ownership. Does anyone know?

Post Subject: Selling paperwork

Dear Kate, as long as the boat is not subject to a marine mortgage, is not registered as a British ship and is not on the Small Ships Register then as far as I am aware you are not obliged to supply any paperwork. I expect the new owners will want a receipt and any other such proof that you have good title to the boat like your receipt when you bought it, invoices for service and repairs etc. If it was me buying I would also demand that you sign a declaration that the boat is yours to sell and there is no outstanding finance on the boat. It is in your interest to inform BW/EA (as applicable)about the change and supply the contact details for the new owner. Personally I would send those details by recorded delivery at the least so they can not chase you for bills that should go to the new owner. If the boat is registered with either organisation above then I am sure they have their own paperwork. If there is a mortgage against the boat the new owners should want the discharge papers.
