If I want to buy a boat from an individual, not a broker, what do I need to check for? I don't mean doing a survey, I mean making sure the title is free and clear and in his name or any other things I need to do before I hand over money.

I saw the title, but I was thinking, theoretically it could have a lien or something, but by then I have gotten to the DMV and have already given over the money.

He is going to sign the title over to me tomorrow and give me a bill of sale, I said I would meet him at his office late afternoon.

FWIW, he seems like a good guy, and an honest individual. I just want to make sure I have done everything I need to tomorrow morning.
