Connecticut Laws | Title 14 Motor Vehicles. Use Of The Highway By Vehicles. Gasoline
CHAPTER 247* UNIFORM MOTOR VEHICLE CERTIFICATE OF TITLE AND ANTITHEFT ACT
Sec. 14-181. Involuntary transfers.

(b) If the interest of the owner is terminated or the vehicle is sold under a security agreement by a lienholder named in the certificate of title, the transferee shall promptly mail or deliver to the commissioner the last certificate of title, his application for a new certificate in the form the commissioner prescribes, and an affidavit made by or on behalf of the lienholder that the vehicle was repossessed and that the interest of the owner was lawfully terminated or sold pursuant to the terms of the security agreement. If the lienholder succeeds to the interest of the owner and holds the vehicle for resale, he need not secure a new certificate of title but, upon transfer to another person, shall promptly mail or deliver to the transferee or to the commissioner the certificate, affidavit and other documents required to be sent to the commissioner by the transferee. (1914)

(c) A person holding a certificate of title whose interest in the vehicle has been extinguished or transferred other than by voluntary transfer shall mail or deliver the certificate to the commissioner upon request of the commissioner. The delivery of the certificate pursuant to the request of the commissioner does not affect the rights of the person surrendering the certificate, and the action of the commissioner issuing a new certificate of title as provided herein is not conclusive upon the rights of an owner or lienholder named in the old certificate. (1915)

Sec. 14-182. Fee to accompany applications. (1916)(Text)

(a) An application for a certificate of title shall be accompanied by the required fee when mailed or delivered to the commissioner. (1917)

(b) An application for the naming of a lienholder or his assignee on a certificate of title shall be accompanied by the required fee when mailed or delivered to the commissioner. (1918)

Sec. 14-183. Issuance of new certificate. (1919)(Text)

(a) The commissioner, upon receipt of a properly assigned certificate of title, with an application for a new certificate of title, the required fee and any other documents required by law, shall issue a new certificate of title in the name of the transferee as owner and, except as provided in subsection (b) of section 14-175, present or mail the new certificate of title to the first lienholder named in the new certificate of title or, if none, to the owner. (1920)

(b) The commissioner, upon receipt of an application for a new certificate of title by a transferee other than by voluntary transfer, with proof of the transfer, the required fee and any other documents required by law, shall issue a new certificate of title in the name of the transferee as owner. If the outstanding certificate of title is not delivered to him, the commissioner shall make demand therefor from the holder thereof. (1921)

(c) The commissioner shall file and retain for five years every surrendered certificate of title, the file to be maintained so as to permit the tracing of title of the vehicle designated therein. (1922)

Sec. 14-184. Scrapping, dismantling or destruction of vehicle. (1923)(Text)

Any person who scraps, dismantles or destroys a vehicle or who purchases a vehicle as scrap or to be dismantled or destroyed shall, if the vehicle's certificate of title is in such person's possession, mail or deliver it to the commissioner for cancellation. A certificate of title of the vehicle shall not again be issued. (1924)

Sec. 14-185. Perfecting of security interest. (1925)(Text)

(a) Unless excepted by section 14-167, a security interest in a vehicle of a type for which a certificate of title is required is perfected by the delivery to the commissioner of the existing certificate of title, if any, an application for a certificate of title containing the name and address of the lienholder and the date of the security agreement and the required fee. It is perfected as of the time when it attached if such delivery is completed within twenty days thereafter, and without regard to the limitations expressed in section 42a-9-317; otherwise it is perfected as of the time of such delivery. (1926)

(b) An unperfected security interest is subordinate to the rights of the persons described in sections 42a-9-317 and 42a-9-323. (1927)

(c) The rules of priority stated in sections 42a-9-322 to 42a-9-324, inclusive, and the other sections therein referred to, shall, to the extent appropriate, apply to conflicting security interests in a vehicle of a type for which a certificate of title is required. A security interest perfected under this section is a security interest perfected otherwise than by filing for the purposes of sections 42a-9-322 to 42a-9-324, inclusive. (1928)

(d) If a vehicle is subject to a security interest when brought into this state, section 42a-9-316, states the rules which apply to determine the validity and perfection of the security interest in this state. (1929)

Sec. 14-186. Duties on creation of security interest. (1930)(Text)

If an owner creates a security interest in a vehicle: (1931)

(a) The owner shall immediately execute the application, in the space provided therefor on the certificate of title or on a separate form the commissioner prescribes, to name the lienholder on the certificate, showing the name and address of the lienholder and the date of his security agreement, and cause the certificate, the application and the required fee to be delivered to the lienholder. (1932)

(b) The lienholder shall immediately cause the certificate, the application and the required fee to be mailed or delivered to the commissioner. (1933)

(c) Upon request of the owner or subordinate lienholder, a lienholder in possession of the certificate of title shall either mail or deliver the certificate to the subordinate lienholder for delivery to the commissioner or, upon receipt from the subordinate lienholder of the owner's application and the required fee, mail or deliver them to the commissioner with the certificate. The delivery of the certificate does not affect the rights of the first lienholder under his security agreement. (1934)
