ELT in North Carolina
North Carolina recently passed legislation requiring the North Carolina Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles to implement an "electronic lien system to process the notification and release of security interests and certificate of title data." The bill includes a deadline that the new Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) system be implemented by July 1, 2014. Participation in the program will be mandatory beginning July 1, 2015. All individuals and lenders who normally finance motor vehicles will be required to participate in the NC ELT program unless they process less than five lien transactions per year.
The ELT program changes the lien and title process for lenders (bankers, credit unions, dealers, and other financial institutions) as lenders no longer need to store and file paper titles.
More details will be posted here as they are finalized by the state. Please also see the FAQS page.
