Re: How to Transfer a Car Lien to Another State
transfer the lien to ????
You do not transfer liens. Liens are either released or imposed. If you refinanced, the lien that was in place would be released by the lender that held that lien. Then the new lender would file with whatever state the car is titled in to place a lien on the title. Wells Fargo has to have you sign a lien agreement that allows the state to place a lien on your title. Wells Fargo them sends it to the state the car is titled in and the state issues a new title with wells fargo as lienholder and sends it to wherever wells fargo listed as their address.
Where you live and what you used as an address is irrelevant since in both TN and GA the lienholder retains the title.
the only problem I see is whether you have the car titled in the correct state. It is to be titled in your state of legal residence. If it isn't, then you need to change that. What you list as your address for the purposes of the loan is irrelevant to the lien and title issue.
