Hello, I am looking into buying a used car from the owner, and that car will be sent to a relative overseas. I live in TX and here are my questions:

1- Is it possible to buy a car and have someone else's name on the title? if yes, is there a particular procedure?
2- if not, what should be done to have the title transfer to my relative, given that he is living abroad.
3- Is vehicle registration necessary, at least for the time being before it ships abroad?
4- what document should I expect the seller to give me as proof of the transaction?

Thank you for your help.
