2. Road tax transferable?

3. Insurance transferable?

4. Do I need to send bike for inspection b4 selling?

5. COE transferable?

 

ThnX for ur reply.

 

the buyer needs:

 

i) a valid insurance covering him FOR THAT NEW BIKE prior to the transfer.

ii) both his and the seller's NRIC to initiate the transfer.

iii) the original logcard for that bike.

 

Roadtax is for the bike, it does not relate to the buying/selling process at all.

 

 

1. Can buy a insurance when u nt the owner yet?

ans: yes. but you need the logcard in order for the ins company to calculate the amount. So photostat 1 from the seller in advance b4 going to the ins company.

 

2. Road tax transferable?

ans: there is no need to transfer. The roadtax goes along with the bike, not the owner. As long as the bike is still road legal, it should have a road tax.

 

3. Insurance transferable?

ans: depends on companies. Mostly no. However it is possible to refund the un-utilised period. So you can cancel and refund the seller's ins policy, and then top up to purchase your ins. policy.

 

4. Do I need to send bike for inspection b4 selling?

ans: check with the owner. He shd have received the letter to go for inspection b4 he can renew his road tax. You can also call LTA to check in advance, to see if there is any late renewal payment for road tax/fines.

 

5. COE transferable?

ans: no. renewable but non-transferable.

Meaning that COE belong to me no matter what bike I changed to? Or once I sell my bike, the COE belong to the buyer? Thnks alot for ur valuable info.

 

& does the current owner need to be present in making a transfer or just need his IC can liao?

The COE is for the bike, not the owner. A bike needs a valid COE certificate covered for the whole 5/10 years on road. When the current COE is ending, you can renew it for another 5/10 years. But you cant just take the remaining 3 (for example) years and want to dump onto another bike with its COE ending.

 

As for whether the owner need to be present, i think no. As that is common with most transfer cases (done by motorshops).

Insurance can it be paid in installment?

ans: no. never heard of insurance companies so kind to allow that. Its will be real messy to handle and maintain that kind of system.

 

must it be renewed often?

ans: renewal is annually.

 

Lets say the insurance $800 how?

ans: count 16 pieces of SGD$50 or 8 pieces of SGD$100, hand it to the insurance company and they will issue u the insurance policy cert.

 

Lets say the bike 3k and u wanna pay by installment to the guy how? Financing company?

ans: finance company is 1 option, but the chances of you finding a finance company that is willing to loan you, is close to 0%. Private settlement of installment payments will be a better bet. Try to neg for partial payment if the seller is willing.

 

if buying 2nd hand bike den the guy still got coi left and i wanna carry on can?

ans: can, but it depends on the shop which the seller is still owing the installment payments. Most of the shops DO NOT allow COI (with ownership transfer) anymore so basically the answer is NO in the end.

 

what many ppl are doing now is, they are doing C.O.I (carry on installments) WITHOUT the ownership transfer. The seller will add the buyer's name into the seller's insurance policy as sub-rider, and the buyer will ride the bike from then on.

 

In practical: the rider is the buyer.

In the eye's of the legal system: the owner is STILL the seller.

 

PROS: No transfer fees, only 1 insurance paperwork to be done.

CONS: If seller decided to take back his bike AFTER you have paid up the remaining installments, legally he have the right to. If buyer commits any offences or fines with the bike, the seller will have to answer if the buyer does not owns up.

 

i have to pay the guy anything bfr i coi?

ans: you have to settle on the amount first b4 you deal. Basically if he only owes 10 mth installment of $100, and his bike is worth 5K, u of coz will have to pay cash on top of COI.

Actually NTUC does allow life policy holders and those that had motor ins with them for at least 3 yrs to pay premium in instalments....

Can I pay for my motor insurance by instalment?

 

Yes, you can pay in 6 monthly instalments provided you have a life or

motor insurance policy with Income for the last 3 consecutive years .There is an additional administrative charge of 2%.

 

 

Maybe 2-wheeler can double confirm this? :confused:

Thanks for the information. Maybe there will be similar benefits too from other insurance companies.

 

What about reloan?

 

Lets say there is still COI to the bike shop. Can the new owner take over the remaining amount outstanding and then do a reloan on that amount?

 

Last time they allowed buyer to pay upfront 2~3 months installments, plus some documents fees and the buyer will be allowed to COI and the bike's ownership transferred to the buyer too. But most shops don't allowed that nowadays.

Private agreement are not recognised by LTA if i am not wrong, so even with the written agreement, it might still end up as a civil suit in order to win back the bike.

 

insurance dunno, u have to check with the companies themselves.

 

if you are the legal sub-rider, when someone knocks u down, you can claim against the other party for the bike's repair and your injuries. Only if your insurance is first party, then you can have the option to get the seller to claim from his own insurance (the one which you are sub-rider), else 2nd party (aka Third party Fire & Theft) and 3rd party can only have the option to claim from the other party.

 

If you claimed against the other party for damages, you (the seller to be exact) will not be required to pay extra loading charges next time he renew the insurance.

 

If you claimed from your (the seller's to be exact) own insurance (First party only) for your reparation, then the seller's next renewal premium will be higher.

i paid in cash when I bought my bike. if I sell it now to a potential buyer and he requests for installment, he will have to look for a finance company himself?
