Proof of ownership

I’m selling my HX but I can’t find any of my paperwork to prove I own the car, the buyer won’t budge to I produce something. What process do I have to go through ? It hasn’t be registered since 2002, last in NSW. Can I go online or do I have to travel to Tweed RTA ( nsw ) to find proof. I live on the Gold Coast

You only need to produce a receipt, show VIN & engine number on receipt, produce your licence to the buyer to satisfy them and sign the receipt. I’ve bought and sold plenty of cars this way.
The RMS won’t help with supporting paperwork if it’s been unregistered since 2002.
Buyer should have already done the old REVs style check, that should appease them

Often a tactic used by buyers to negotiate a reduced price?

do a "NSW Registration History Check" on line for about 18 to 20 dollars.If the car was registered to you previously it will be documented "it won't say your name but will say when it was registered last"and they send you an email attachment of the cars history.You need engine number or VIN number,I used it it's a good one,click on "check rego"try here:https://www.service....

I am with Bryan.
I have bought and sold lots of cars just using a receipt. Print it out on a PC if you want it to look more professional. A copy for you and a copy for the purchaser, Buyer and seller to sign both.
just include chassis Nr, engine nr, make and model, your name and address. I used to include License nr, but would now be a bit wary due to identity theft.

As Al said, do the online history check.
That will show if it has been stolen or has finance owing give a written guarantee that you are legitimate.
Also, give him a written receipt with your name, address and licence number on it. That way he has proof of where he got it.
As said above, he might be trying to use the lack of paperwork to get you to drop your price.
If he is hanging around he must want the car.
Get the check done, tell him you will give him a receipt. If he doesn't like that, call his bluff and tell him to f**** of and stop wasting your time. Then watch his money come out, hopefully.
I've always found that telling a difficult buyer to go away works wonders for the seller.

When my daughter sold her Beetle, we advertised it for $3,995.
A woman rang up and said, "your car is the cheapest car in the paper, how much can i have it have it for?"
I said she could have it for $4,000.
She said, "but it's in the paper for $3,995."
I just said, "I know."
She hung up.
I doing that was much more polite than telling a woman to f*** off.
I wouldn't sell a car to a person like that.

Whats wrong with Melbourne drug addicts sleeping all over the footpath trying to scab money?

In Qld the name on the rego papers is the registered keeper of the vehicle and the address is where the vehicle is garaged it does not stand as proof of ownership.All that is required for sale is a receipt/statement signed by seller.

so this is the challenge for the OP. The person buying can accept a receipt of sale - but he wants evidence from the OP that the car is in fact his to sell or he has authority on behalf of the owner to sell it. So those checks re whether any finance or car reported as stolen are useful. Otherwise if the OP can't provide some authentic evidence (whatever may be necessary in that State) - the buyer takes some risk even if the buyer acts in good faith - most people buying and selling cars have exposure to this...I think the buyer has to let him know what he actually wants/needs - if the OP can't provide that - then move on and look for another buyer.. maybe just writing a stat declaration - signed and witnessed stating a credible story of how he came to own it - where and when it was purchased - how much paid etc...all up it's prob low risk - but technically you could buy in good faith - add significant value eg restore and then have someone claim and prove they owned it - you haven't committed an offence but could be ordered to hand it back to the rightful owner...you would then have to pursue the person you bought it from to recover costs..
