It's my understanding that by filling out the proper form, MVR-4, showing proof of no lien, and having a notarized signature, that you can issue a title transfer to the new owner at the appropriate DMV office if your title is lost. This is in lieu of waiting the 15+ days for a new title request if you have a buyer lined up. Have any of you done this?

I haven't done this personally but I've been a title clerk in NC for 15 years.

If the original title was issued in NC the MVR-4 will work. If the vehicle was originally titled in another state then no luck.

The MVR-4 will work to transfer ownership if both parties are there to sign in front of the notary. The new owner will have other paperwork to complete but the MVR-4 can transfer ownership.

If the vehicle EVER had a lien on it you will need an original lien release from the lien holder. It doesn't matter if it has been paid off for years, DMV will require an original.

Thanks Pan. I have all the needed docs, just wanted to verify that this does work. I appreciate the input!

Pan Ash hasn't posted on this site in 2 1/2 years, so you may not hear from him/her. I'd suggest simply going to the DMV, showing them your paperwork, and asking if its ok.
