If you are buying a vehicle from a friend, family member or private party, or you received it as a gift, you must transfer ownership of the vehicle into your name within 15 days.
You will need the following:
Replace a Title
Complete an Affidavit of Loss form. All registered owners must sign the form, and the signatures must be notarized.
If you're still making payments on the vehicle or boat, the bank (or other lien holder listed on the title) must apply for the duplicate title.
