A bonded title option is a valuable alternative if you reside in a state which allows for this vehicle title method. It provides a process for a vehicle owner to obtain a legal title when they do not have a valid prior title document, or if it has been damaged. Follow the steps below to file for a bonded title, to get a new title in your name from your state. Once you have done all the steps to prepare your paperwork and perform the due diligence on the car title, then you can bring your file to the DMV or licensing division to obtain a title. In this process the state titling agency will issue you a legal vehicle title in your name upon providing them with an affidavit of ownership and appropriate bond.
A bonded title will not be issued if there are any outstanding liens on a vehicle, so be sure to get a lien release as part of your paperwork.
