After you request a title change

  • Due to an increase in volume, MOHCD is prioritizing title change requests that are related to a sale or refinance transaction. For all other requests, MOHCD may take 60-90 business days to process a complete title change package.
  • We may ask for additional documents.
  • We reserve the right to deny a title change request.
