The seller is responsible for obtaining a Movement Advice and it must be completed BEFORE the reptile is handed over or if the reptile is being transported the relevant section of the completed MA must accompany the animal.
It does not mater if you are selling to a neighbour or someone in your house the same law applies.
This is clearly explained on the front page of the MA form.
When I am selling I get all the information and obtain an MA before I show anyone the animal otherwise you have to make another trip.
If both seller and purchaser are registered on My Gov then you can in theory execute an MA online at the point of sale but this is rarely used.
