CANCELLATION OF A CERTIFICATE OF TITLE
If a Certificate of Title has been improperly issued, the appropriate procedure is cancellation of that title. In instances where cancellation becomes necessary, only the Department of Motor Vehicles has this authority.
It is the responsibility of the dealership, lienholder, insurance company or private individual whose action caused the error, to submit the appropriate request for cancellation and supply the necessary documentation to the DMV so that a determination regarding whether the title should be cancelled can be made.
Once a cancellation has been approved the DMV will notify the appropriate County Official and any other person(s) directly affected by the cancellation. The County Official is then advised to record the cancellation in their office and return the documents used to obtain the incorrect title to the place where the error originated for appropriate action. The title issued in error is then destroyed.
If, after reviewing the circumstances and documentation the cancellation request is denied, notification is sent to the requestor giving them the reason for the denial and advising the best method for correction of the problem. In the event of a denial all documents submitted for review are returned to the requestor.
Questions regarding Cancellation of a Certificate of Title may be addressed to E-Mail or by contacting this office at (402) 471-3918.
