As the new mandatory Florida ELT system comes online and lenders statewide begin to use the system, the most common questions ADD has been asked revolve around how to convert one of the new electronic lien titles to a paper title, either before or after a lien is satisfied.
On Monday January 14, 2013, ADD launched a motor vehicle record verification system for government entities. Now, ADD users will see a barcode in the upper right corner of printed DMV123 records (the barcode won't be visible on the on-screen record). ADD created the record verification process to help tax collectors and other government entities verify the authenticity of out-of-state records presented by ADD customers.
When ADD launched DMV123, our goal was to provide qualified businesses access to real-time DMV searches in all 50 states. We're proud to say that as of 2013, we're more than half way there!
As of January 1, 2013, the new Florida Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) process is mandatory for any business that finances vehicles, vessels or mobile homes in Florida. Under the new system, liens will be maintained electronically. The new requirements are a change for many dealers, but transitioning to an electronic system should reduce title fraud and provide faster notification of lien satisfactions.
