If the original certificate of title has been lost or destroyed, only the titled owner or his/her appointed attorney-in-fact may apply for a duplicate certificate of title. When there is an outstanding lien on record, only the lienholder may apply for a duplicate certificate of title.

If there is more than one titled owner and the names are joined by "and" all owners must sign for the duplicate certificate of title.
