Titling requirements for vehicles that are bonded, leased, salvaged, abandoned or in a trust differ from requirements for titling most other vehicles.
An individual who does not have proof that they own a vehicle can title it using an indemnity bond – a security bond written by an insurance company – or a cash bond.
In cases in which a vehicle is being leased in North Carolina, the vehicle's owner and operator share the responsibilities of titling and registering the vehicle.
Salvaged & Abandoned Vehicles
The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles must be notified when transferring titles for salvaged vehicles, and other requirements might apply.
Vehicles in a Trust
Required documentation varies for registering a vehicle and transferring registration to a trust.
