Auto Lien Release Made Simple specializes in obtaining lien releases for people who have paid off their auto loan or for those who have a lien on their title from the previous owner. We make the process simple, fast, and stress-free by contacting your lender on your behalf. We do the work for you!

How We Get Your Lien Released

  1. We will check the DMV records to find the name of the lien holder and the state for the last titled owner.
  2. We will fill out the official DMV lien release form for the vehicle and state.
  3. We will send a custom lien release request letter and the official title form.
  4. The letter and title form is sent to up to three address:
    1. The legal address that is recorded in the official DMV title records.
    2. The current address of the lien holder, if they have moved.
    3. Any business address for a merger or takeover company.

Additionally, we provide our customer service contact in case your lien holder has any questions about the process. We’ll also give them your direct contact information so they can send the title forms to you directly if they prefer.

To make the process more convenient, we also include a pre-addressed and postage-paid return envelope for the lien holder to use to send back any forms or title documents.

What happens after we contact your lender?

We’ll keep you updated throughout the process. You’ll receive notifications when we send the letter and when the lien holder receives it. If the lien holder has any questions, we’ll inform you of their inquiry. Additionally, the lien holder may reach out to you directly if they have any questions or concerns.

By law, we are not permitted to release the private information of the previous owner or lien holder to any third parties. Furthermore, the prior owner or lien holder is not required to take any action with the title.

Despite this limitation, we’ve found that sending a request in the mail has the highest response rate. Most financial institutions cannot accept verbal requests for lien information over the phone. By sending a written request, the lien holder can forward the file to the appropriate department for processing, ensuring that your request is handled efficiently.
