Q.

This question was answered based upon current rules, regulations & statutes in effect on March 9, 2017

How is the registry planning on handling "E-Titles.  I have a client that went from being a sole proprietor to a Corporation. The lender said he is all set, he had an "E-Title".  We could not get the vehicle re-registered in the corporate name.

Thank you very much for your time, I will look forward to hearing from you.

A.

Kathy Cormier:    The lienholder has to request a paper title so that it can be released to the customer for re-registration.

Agent:  The problem we are having is the lienholders are not understanding what they need to do in regards to notifying the Registry to print the title and mail it to them to mark for "re-registration purposes only".

Many of these "out of state"  lienholders don't seem to know what we are asking them to do.

Is there a form that they complete to request the title be printed and mailed to them?

Thanks

Kathy Cormier:  I’ve attached a few things for you, 1. ELT lifecycle, 2. ELT Contacts, 3. ELT Manual

This will help the person that you are speaking to understand what needs to be done.  If they are still having a problem, I would suggest that they contact the Title Department and speak to Joyce Mover, ELT Program Manager 857-368-7481 or they can email her:  joyce.mover@state.ma.us

Agent:  I just wanted to thank you.  This is worth its’ weight in gold to us!  Many thanks!
