E-Lien

Person working on laptop

The Kansas E-lien system allows lenders, dealers and other authorized lienholders to electronically exchange essential vehicle, lien and title information. The system is not available to vehicle owners.

Kansas vehicle owners who borrow money for a car, truck, motorcycle, trailer or another motor vehicle will not receive printed paper titles. Instead, the Division of Vehicles will hold the electronic title until the lien is satisfied.

When the lien is paid off, the division will mail a paper title to the appropriate owner, purchaser, dealer or financial institution.

If your business is new to the e-lien system, you will need to complete the Memorandum of Understanding, an application to join for all associates who will use the system, and the authorization for Electronic Funds Transfer.

Please fax completed forms into the Kansas Division of Vehicles at 1-855-492-8351.

Benefits

As a dealer, you may file Security Interest applications and cancellations electronically. As a lender, you may file SI applications and cancellations, secured titles, refinanced secured titles, duplicate secured titles, and lien releases.

This reduces paper, is convenient and allows the lender to manage their own liens. No cost to join.

Who is eligible

Lenders (banks, credit unions, lending institutions) or dealers from any state.

If your business is new to the Kansas Elien system, you will need to complete the Memorandum of Understanding, Application to join (for all associates who will use the system), and the Authorization for Electronic Funds Transfer. These documents can be accessed by going to the E-Lien portal.

Fees for transactions:

  • Security Interest - $2.50
  • Secure title - $10.00
  • Duplicate and refinanced secured title - $20.00
