Consider another definition. - Posted by Ben-PA

Greg?s suggestion of using the ?person? idea is very bad. He neglected to consider the definition of ?buying, selling, or exchanging? as listed in the PA Board of Vehicles Act. The definition:
?Includes listing, offering, auctioning, advertising, representing or soliciting, offering or attempting to solicit or negotiate on behalf of another a sale, purchase or exchange or any similar or related activity.?
Additionally, trying to circumvent the law and posting that fact on the internet isn?t a wise move. The penalty for doing what Greg suggested is, assuming conviction, (which should be easy as Greg confessed). . . . ?$1,000 or any higher amount equal to double the pecuniary gain derived from the offense. The sale of each vehicle in violation of this act constitutes a separate offense.?
Here is another clause relating to mobile home parks which you may find interesting:
?It shall be unlawful for any person, for a commission, compensation or other consideration, to sell or act as salesperson, broker or sales agent in connection with the sale of one or more mobile homes located in a mobile home park, as provided for in section 11 of the act of November 24, 1976 (P.L.1176, No 261), known as the Mobile Home Park Rights Act, unless such person shall be licensed under this act, except as provided for in paragraph (2).?
(Note paragraph 2 has to do with realtors? exemption)
One more point. PA notary laws are getting complex and the agreement notaries must sign is scary. I doubt very much if you will find a notary who will place liens on titles without your installment seller?s license number. The penalty for doing one deal without a license is high.
Tom, here is my free advice and you can take it for what it cost:
I did not interpret the PA laws for you. Get a copy of the licensing material as Greg suggested and read it several times without reading into the laws what you want them to say.
Get the licenses. Travel the speed bumps!
