My company is planning on purchasing a fairly well established website. Are there any guidelines for this or is it just a matter of swapping the registration across from one party to the other? I wouldn't want him to come back in years to come and say that the website is still his. The person we are buying the site from seems trustworthy but I just wanted to make sure there isn't any particular procedure that needs to take place when purchasing a website that I might be missing. The sale has been agreed through email correspondence.

Written contract including domain, business name, rights/ownership to all contents.

This is no different from the purchase of any other asset. You get the sale agreed in writing, and you get the seller to give you an invoice or receipt that shows the transaction has been completed.

I agree with the previous two answers...get it all in writing. I have a client who went through a nasty court case over ownership of his site, and it came down to what the contract said.
