If there is a change in the person of the owner (e.B. through the sale of the vehicle), the previous owner or owner must inform the registration authority immediately. This serves to correct the vehicle register. If the buyer has applied for the issue of a new registration certificate Part I, the notification of the seller is unnecessary. The seller remains the owner of the vehicle until it has been rewritten to the new owner or put out of service by the latter. Until that date, there is an obligation to pay motor vehicle tax and the premium for liability insurance.
