Adding a Lienholder to a Title

If a lienholder was omitted on the original title or you need to add or change a lienholder, you may amend this information and receive a new title issued with the correct lienholder information.


A $25.00 fee is required to amend/add the lienholder information and issue a new title.

Processing Time

Please allow seven (7) to ten (10) business days after receipt of the application for a new title to be processed and mailed. The new title will be mailed directly to the lienholder. If you have any questions, call the Title Division at 857-368-8050.
