Selling Car - Cancelling Registration Documents

I'm selling my car this weekend and I wanted some advice on the process please. I have a private buyer and we agreed that he would collect the car this Monday (which is a public holiday). From other threads I see I need to remove the plates and give him the registration document (grey card). Then I return the plates to the authorities and cancel the insurance.

My question is do I need to have the grey card cancelled prior to handing it over? It seems that I can either
A) Cancel the grey card and return the plates in advance of the handover.
B) Give the uncancelled card to the new owner and remove the plates at the time of handover, then return these to the authorities later.

Is this corect? I'm out of CH until Friday night and have agreed the buyer can collect the car this Monday which means I can't cancel the grey card or return the plates in advance. I wanted to check I'm ok to give him the uncancelled grey card and simply return the plates on Tuesday. Any advice would be very welcome please.

Thanks.

Just return your plates, I did this on a vehicle I sold on the forum , with another sale the buyer returned the plates, however I did know him & said he could use my plates for a week

Ok great thanks, so there is no need to have the registration document cancelled in advance and I can give him it as is?

Re: Selling Car - Cancelling Registration Documents

No requirement at all. If you have 2 cars on 1 plate its better to, as if he does not register it you can't cancel the insurance or put a 2nd car in the plates
