WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO GET A NEW OR DUPLICATE AUTO TITLE?
Posted on: November 17, 2017
Ohio participates in the Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) Program which means titles and liens can be electronically exchanged with lienholders in lieu of a paper title. Once CashMax receives a paper title, the lender places an electronic lien on the vehicle online. At that point, the original paper title is no longer valid and a duplicate title must be purchased by the customer once the lien is released on the vehicle. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles charges a $15.00 fee for all duplicate titles.
