Statute reads in part: B. If the Department confirms owner or lienholder information, either through a search of its own records or those of another jurisdiction, the Department shall notify the owner, at the last known address of record, and leinholder, at the last known address of record, of the notice of interest in their vehicle, by certified mail, return receipt requested, and advise them to reclaim and remove the vehicle within 15 days, or, if the vehicle is a manufactured home or a mobile home, 120 days, from the date of notice. Such notice, when sent in accordance with these requirements, shall be sufficient regardless of whether or not it was ever received. Following the notice required in this subsection, if the vehicle remains unclaimed, the owner and all persons having security interests in the vehicle shall have waived all right, title and interest in the vehicle.

D. The Department shall provide to the person in possession of the abandoned vehicle a receipt indicating that the search requested pursuant to this section has been completed.

My question is, if I know that the lienholder address on record with DMV is no longer correct (P.O. Box #) should I divulge this info to DMV or just let it go and come back? I found out this info when I called the bank to verify their address so I could write them, which I never did.

Also, doesn't it sound like DMV is the one that sends the request to the owner & leinholder, rather than myself? In section A, it covers the fess for the search., etc.

Not your job to inform DMV of a new address,that was the owner and lienholders rsponsibility when they moved.I would not tell them.It sounds like DMV will send the request which is the most logical so they know it was done to meet there requirements

Your overthinking this. They will mail to the person not the bank. And mostlikly it will be your phone's address or if the person has another vehicle registered in their name to that address. Just plan a vacation and find other things to do besides worrying while you wait. It's yours, just go thru the paperwork so you can affixed to the land, otherwise the person buying can't get a loan and there are other reasons why a person can't get a loan but the home has to be newer that... 1978 or is it 1987 ask a mortgage broker.

Follow the instructions to the letter. As I stated on a previous thread, the lien holder/ owner won’t respond. The certified mail is used to give final official notice.
