How do I get the hypothecation removed from my car's registration certificate once I'm done paying my loan?

Answered by Car Loans Expert Johnny on April 7, 2021

My friend says this is the next step to take once I'm done financing my car. How does this process work?

“First and foremost, you will need to get proof from your lender that you have paid off your auto loan. Then you will need to submit this proof to the appropriate local government office (i.e., the DMV or RTO) and fill out any forms, if necessary.

This process usually takes about 30 days or so to complete, and when you’re finished, you will be the legal owner of your car. “

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
