New Hampshire Lost or Damaged Car Title Replacement Information


You cannot transfer ownership of your vehicle if you do not possess the Title Certificate. The most common reason you would not possess the Certificate is that there is a lienholder (lender) for the vehicle. In this case the lien holder maintains control of the title until the lien (loan) is paid off. This common situation does not require a replacement of the original title, but instead a transfer of the title to you.

REPLACEMENT. The title must be “replaced” if the original has been lost, damaged (rips, coffee  stains, water damage), has cross outs or white outs, or has incorrect entries (such as seller’s printed name and signature not matching the official names on the front of the title) or signatures in the wrong place.

The the required application for duplicate title form is at the link

(If the vehicle 1999 or older, it is exempt and does not need a title).

If the original title had two owners, both must sign the application.

If the original title had a lienholder (lender) and that lien has been paid off, have the lender complete the release on this form, or get a separate release from the lender and attach to the application.

If you are replacing a damaged title, it is recommended that you attach the damaged title to the application.

Submit the documents as follows:

By Mail. Send to Division of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Title and Anti-theft, 23 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03305. Include check or money order for $ 25 payable to “State of NH – DMV”.

In person. DMV Office locations  can be found at

Process was super easy, Family Car Buyers was available at every part of the process to make sure that everything went smooth. They gave me a more than fair price for my car that had a blown transmission and a flat tire. Glad to have found them and been able to get a great deal! Thank you for your service!

This was our first time selling a used car on any platform. Using Family Car Buyers was a fantastic experience. Professional and efficient from the beginning to the end of the process. They paid top dollar, they organized towing, and I got paid in full immediately. I will definitely sell any other used/junk car to Family Car Buyers in the future.

Family Car Buyers were great to work with in disposing of our car that had been damaged in an accident and written off by the insurance company. They were quick, efficient and very professional, I would recommend their services and deal with them again

Our old car had a couple of problems we didn’t want to bother with fixing, but it was challenging to find the right buyer for a fixer upper. Family Car Buyers was great! Super easy to work with and they were quick to respond. I would definitely work with them again.
