Obtaining a Lien Release


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.
