If the purchaser of a vehicle does not fulfill his obligation to re-register or de-register, the Landesbetrieb Verkehr (LBV) can initiate the decommissioning ex officio.

The following case constellations come into play here:

  • The previous keeper or owner of a vehicle does not comply with his obligation to notify the registration authority in connection with the sale of his vehicle
  • a vehicle is not immediately re-registered or taken out of service by the purchaser
  • the information provided by the new keeper or owner turns out to be incorrect
  • the vehicle was sold abroad and there is no deregistration

If the decommissioning took place in accordance with Section 13 (4) of the Vehicle Registration Ordinance, the previous owner will receive a notification.
