Chapter 22 Corrections and Adjustments
22.060 Lienholder/Legal Owner Omitted (CGC §818.5)
When a lienholder/legal owner (LO) name is omitted on the California Certificate of Title because it was not shown on the registration application or due to a DMV error and an application is received to correct the omission, the application must be forwarded to the Involuntary Transfer Section (ITS) in DMV headquarters.
|Omission is a DMV error
|DMV has issued a title to a second LO due to another lien taken on the vehicle
|Title was used by the registered owner to transfer ownership of the vehicle and a new title has been issued to the buyer
A courtesy stop may be placed on the vehicle record for 30 days to allow the dealer or LO to obtain a restraining order and stop the issuance of any title until a resolution can be made.
