What You Need to Know About Getting a Duplicate Title
Before coming in to get your duplicate title, please read the following useful information that will help the process go smoothly.
Only certain people will qualify to get a duplicate title for a vehicle. A person must be one of the following to get a new title:
- Current registered owner of the vehicle
- Someone with power of attorney over the current registered owner of the vehicle
- A curator for the current registered owner if he/she is incapable of handling this transaction
- A bankruptcy trustee
- Lien holder for the vehicle (must be recorded)
- A representative of a corporation that owns the vehicle
Make sure when you come in to get the duplicate title you bring in a copy of your Louisiana registration certificate if you have it. If the vehicle has ever been financed or had a lien on it, it is very likely you will also need to bring in a lien release letter from the former finance company or lienholder, before the Duplicate Title can be ordered. When the proper paperwork has been submitted by the right person, we can get the job done quickly.
