Can I Get A Title Loan On A Car I Just Bought?

A title loan on a car uses the borrower’s lien-free car title as collateral for a lump sum of cash. This loan requires the borrower to own their car outright – meaning they don’t owe any payments on the vehicle – and to have a title that is free of any outstanding liens. If you just bought a car in cash and don’t owe anything on it, you can get a title loan. Check out this guide to learn more.

Getting Your Lien-Free Title

For those who do qualify for a title loan on a car, you’ll need to have your certificate of title from the state of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation – or DOT. You’ll need to apply for this immediately upon buying your vehicle to avoid any unnecessary legal troubles because having a car with a title not in your name makes it seem like the car is stolen.

If you bought your car through a licensed dealer in WI, the dealer should have submitted the title paperwork for you. If you purchased your car through an independent seller, they’ll need to have given you the vehicle title, signed by the seller and including the odometer reading. If you need to transfer a title in your name, you’ll have to go to the DMV.

How To Apply For A Lien-Free Title

If you have just purchased a vehicle, your next step should be to make sure you have the lien-free title transferred to you in your name. If you need to apply for a lien-free vehicle title, you can easily apply for your lien-free title either online, in person, or via mail. Each process has a fee and is outlined below.

  • Online: You can apply online for your vehicle title once you purchase a vehicle. You’ll need to print the required documents, have a legal Wisconsin ID, social security number, and provide your date of birth. You must also have the vehicle title signed by the seller and include the odometer reading unless the dealer mailed this in themselves.
  • In person: For those applying in person, you’ll need the Certificate of Title signed by the seller and with the odometer reading, a lien release if there is a lien holder previously listed, your legal Wisconsin ID to prove you are of legal age, and the payment.
  • By mail: Mailed-in applications take longer to process, but it is still an option if you need to apply for a lien-free vehicle title. You will need the same documents as for the online application, but you will mail everything to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

How Much Money Can I Get For A Car Title Loan?
