Lien Releases

The Department urges motor vehicle finance companies in New York to cooperate in complying with the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law by mailing or delivering a lien release immediately upon satisfaction of the lien on a motor vehicle. To avoid being subject to action by the Department, all regulated financial institutions financing motor vehicle sales shall release liens and deliver the lien release to the owner no later than three business days after clearance of payment. Consumers and lien holders looking for information on vehicle lien releases should visit our Obtaining a Lien Release on a Vehicle page.
