What paperwork do I need to replace a lost car title?
Some states, like California, only require that you ask for a Duplicate Title by filling out a short form and paying a fee. Here, you must check off the reason you need a duplicate title, such as lost, stolen, mutilated, or not received. No other paperwork is required, just paying a fee.
Other states, like Missouri, require you to go to a county Circuit Court and get them to order the Department of Revenue to give you a new title.
Certain states, such as Alaska, require that you fill out a notarized affidavit form for a lost title before they’ll issue you a duplicate title.
Remember, before buying a car, always get a vehicle history report to see if the title is issued to the proper owner or is salvaged.
