How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in Michigan
You may apply for a duplicate vehicle title if your original title is lost, stolen, or damaged. A vehicle with a missing title cannot be bought or sold, so owners must apply for and obtain a replacement before they can sell their vehicle.
WHAT YOU NEED WHEN APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE/REPLACEMENT TITLE
- Complete the Michigan Duplicate Title application, making sure to indicate on the form that you are applying for a duplicate title. The application should be signed by all owner/s.
- All owners must present proper identification; in cases where owners are not present, they can nominate an agent by filling an Appointment of Agent form.
- If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
- Residents living out of Michigan can fill the ["http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0 Duplicate Title Questionnaire] and mail the same with the fees and duplicate title application and proof of ownership of the vehicle to:
