Title Transfer Time Limit?

Is there a limit in time for how long it takes for me to transfer the title from the previous owner to my name? Someone was telling me that there might be a fee if I take longer than 30 days to transfer the title to my name after I purchase the bike from the owner?

Quote:
To transfer a title in Texas, the vehicle must be insured. If the title is being transferred within 30 days of a normal sale, the previous insurance will be sufficient. After 30 days, a new insurance policy must be purchased prior to the official transfer of title.

The seller should also sign a copy of the buyer's title application (Form 130-U). The buyer then has one month (20 working days) to take the title application and the signed-over title to the County Tax Assessor-Collectors office and use them to transfer the title formally into their name.
This is helpful

1 month (20 business days)

This is the new fee for 2008 use to be alot cheaper..

FILING ON TIME
You have 20 work days from the date of sale to transfer
your title and registration without paying a late transfer penalty
PENALTIES

INDIVIDUAL TO INDIVIDUAL TRANSFERS
o
$25 late transfer penalty – If you apply for the transfer between 21 work days and 30 work days after the date of sale.
o
ADD another $25 penalty for each additional 30-day period (or part of 30-day period)

Any courthouse that you would normally go do registration for your vehicle, can also be used to do a title transfer.....

and I read somewhere that it is either $28 or $33 to transfer the title, But I remember someone telling me that the get 80% of the KBB value, and then charge 6.25% of that 80% to figure out the cost for transferring the title. Which one is true? (the % one ends up being about $350... big difference between the two)

best thing you can do is say you traded some old stuff for it... if not you will pay the taxes for the value of the bike and what you paid.. this link will tell you the value they go by

I was reading that link actually. Its where I found:

Quote:
Title transfer fees are $28, or $33 if you live in an "emissions impacted" county.
But I remember many people telling me about the 6.25% of KBB value and getting charged with that much (around $300). It's a big different and I want to know which one of the 2 I will be paying so I can have the title under my name
