In the State of New Hampshire when you transfer the ownership of a vehicle you need to complete the odometer disclosure statement found on the back of the vehicle’s Certificate of Title in the Assignment of title section. This operation is mandatory for all vehicles model year 2011 or newer, self-propelled, and with a registered weight of 16,000 lbs. or less. If the Certificate of Title is not available or it’s held by a lienholder then you need to complete the official Odometer Disclosure Statement Form TDMV 12.
These vehicle types are exempt from odometer disclosure requirements in the State of New Hampshire: vehicles model year 2010 or older, vehicles over 16,000 pounds, low-speed vehicles (LSV), non-motorized vehicles (trailer-type), and scooters or mopeds.
Optionally you may use the TDMV 12 Form along with the completed Certificate of Title as an official record of the sale or transfer. Find more details below.
Especially when you write on the Certificate of Title please be very careful and try to not make any mistakes. So read first all the details before you start to write on the title. If you make any alteration or erasure this will void the title and you will need a duplicate.
Also be aware that an inaccurate statement, or failure to complete an odometer statement, may result in fines and/or imprisonment.
