In the State of Indiana, security interest is not perfected on a motor vehicle until the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) issues a title with the security interest in the form of a lien indicated on the certificate of title. Indiana law states that a security agreement covering a security interest in a vehicle that is not inventory held for sale can be perfected only if the BMV indicates the security interest on the certificate of title or a duplicate.
Once an application for a motor vehicle certificate of title is processed, regardless of whether the title is processed at a BMV license branch, Certified Partner location, or dealership, the title enters a “Pending” status in the BMV system. The amount of time a title remains in a “Pending” status varies; in accordance with state law, the BMV will not issue the title until it is satisfied that the information submitted is correct and the person applying for a certificate of title is the owner of the vehicle. As long as the title is in a “Pending” status, the BMV may alter and/or void the title at any time. It is not uncommon for Indiana Child Support Bureau and/or Department of Revenue liens to be added during this time.
As a result, security interest is not considered to be perfected until the title is issued by the BMV with a Title Issue Date and the lien recorded on the face of the title.
