Guys just need you inputs on this.
Let's say a car has been used by the current owner without transferring it under his name (still on open papers) for more than 1 year. How do we know/is there any way to know whether previous owner have already submitted his copy to RMV?
Note that car is not within the limits of colombo city limits

Yah . Now that's the plan. I just wanted to check the next step just incase he doesn't have it Will see how it goes..
After checking almost 5-10 cars i gave up the idea of selling my precious and keeping it for another 2 years atleast and then found this 😑
Anyways, thanks for your input. WIll have a chat with the owner and see
Although the previous owner (seller) is legally required to submit a copy of the transfer form to DMV, it's rarely done. Most sellers sign the form and give it to the buyer who will or will not register the transfer of ownership. Just see if all the pages of the transfer form are signed and intact. If one copy - copy to be sent to DMV by the seller, is missing, it's reasonable to assume it was submitted.
(I may have misunderstood the question. It looks like such a simple question)
@varotone you are correct. I will get in touch with him and see.
