Steps to Remove a Lien from your Car’s Title

Releasing a Vehicle Lien for a Title Loan in Kansas City

car title loans with liens

Vehicle lien laws vary from state to state in the manner in which they are recorded and subsequently released. In this guide, we’ll discuss some of the lien laws in Kansas. Overall, they’re quite straightforward and you can remove a car lien from your title quite quickly.

To understand how to get a lien released in Kansas, one must understand what a lien is and how it gets placed against the vehicle. A lien is placed on a vehicle to protect a creditor that loaned money based on the vehicle’s value. A lien is a claim on the property of another party to protect the creditor in the event of the buyer’s default on the debt or a buyer’s bankruptcy.

For a lien to be perfected, the creditor must file a notice of lien with the Kansas Department of Revenue within thirty days from the date that the loan was made. In Kansas, the lien can be filed either by using a paper form or the lien can be filed online at the Revenue Department’s website.

Multiple liens

A vehicle can have multiple liens filed against it, but liens following the first lien are handled somewhat differently, as before they can be perfected the first lienholder must provide written authorization for the recording of the subsequent lien and the authorization must be provided to the Department of Revenue.

Removing an original lien

Normally a lien is recorded by the auto lender when a vehicle is initially purchased and is handled within the documents from that initial sale. Once that original purchase loan has been paid off in full , the original lender (lienholder) can file a release of lien form to the person who satisfied the lien, and fax or email the form to the Department of Revenue.

You may wonder how to get a car title. It is a relatively simple process achieved by filing the release of lien with the Department of Revenue and requesting a title.

Getting a clear title

Once the owner of the vehicle has had the title lien released and has received a clear title issued by the Department of Revenue, they have a modicum of security in that the clear title can be used to obtain cash in an emergency. That clear title can be used to obtain a car title loan from a lender that specializes in car title loans.
