Default Buying A PSL from Individual

I am green at this so I need some advice. I am buying a PSL from an individual. My question is when should I pay him? I dont want to give someone money before I get the license- and possibly get ripped off. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Rookie

No truly safe way to do it.

First, call the Texans and verify that your seller owns the seats.

Then, have him completely fill out the transfer form. I would advise you give him half the money when you get the form, and half the money when the transfer goes through.

I agree with Yankee, but the only thing different I did was that I also called the Texans a second time after the seller made the transfer request to make sure that they actually had the request filled out with me as the new owner on it before I signed.

Why did the seller mail in the request?

when I've bought PSL's, I have the seller request the request, fill out his part(s), then I put my name on it and mail it in.

I bought my second set of psl seats last year. The best thing to do is go to the Texans website for info or better, just call the Texans offices at 832-667-2002 and ask the people that would know it all. Thats what I did to be safe and make the transaction smooth.

Good advice above.

I bought some more PSLs last offseason, but it was the guys next to my seats and we had talked about it for several seasons already. Those guys are legit.

Nevertheless, I took precautions and the Texans were very helpful in the paperwork and working with me to make sure everything was in order on the transaction before payment was made.

Call the Texans office, there is a person that handles these type of transactions. Make sure the paperwork is in order before you pay. They will understand your concerns as the buyer.
