Obtaining a Lien Release

November 14, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have paid off your car loan, your lender should release the lien hold on your car. To complete a DMV title transfer and obtain a clear Louisiana title, submit the following to the OMV:

  • Vehicle Application (Form DPSMV 1799).

  • Your title certificate reflecting the lien release.

    • If the title does not reflect the lien release, get a letter from your lender—written on their letterhead—stating that the lien has been satisfied. The letter must also include the lienholder's:

      • Name.

      • Address.

      • Telephone number.

  • A copy of your current registration.

  • Payment for the $26.50 lien release fee.

 

Remove a Lien from Your LA Title

 

Once you have paid off your car loan, your lender should release the lien hold on your car. You will then be able to obtain a clear Louisiana title.

 

The following can be submitted by mail or in person at your nearest Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles location:

  • Vehicle Application (Form DPSMV 1799).

  • A copy of your current registration.

  • Payment for the $76.50 title and handling fee (check or money order).

    • Fees may vary. Make sure to check with your local OMV office for the most accurate fee information.

    • When writing a personal or company check, include the driver's license number of the responsible party.

    • Businesses may also write the federal employee identification number (EIN).

  • Your title certificate reflecting the lien release.

If the title does not reflect the lien release, get a letter from your lender—written on their letterhead—stating that the lien has been satisfied. The letter must also include the lienholder's:

  • Name.

  • Address.

  • Telephone number.

If you chose to mail in the information, you can send the letter to the LA OMV at:

  • Postal address:

    • Office of Motor Vehicles

    • P.O. Box 64886

    • Baton Rouge, LA 70896

OR

  • Physical address:

    • Office of Motor Vehicles
