Kentucky Vehicle Donation Title Questions and Helpful Information

A:On the back of the Title please sign where it reads “Signature of Seller(s)” and next to that “Printed names of Seller(s).” Your Title must get notarized by a notary before pick up.

Kentucky Title Example

Q:I paid off my car but there is still a lienholder listed?

The lienholder should have provided a Lien Release or completed the Lien Release section on Title when it was paid off. If a Lien Release is required please contact your financial institution. We will request one if necessary directly from the bank or other financial institution on your behalf but may need a written authorization and copy of your driver’s license.

Q:What do I put down for the Buyer?

A:We prefer it be left blank along with the odometer reading as the processing partner will record the exact reading at time of processing and handle the buyer and dealer license information.

Information that is provided by the processing partner may be put in the buyer section.

Q:Can I still donate if I can’t find my Title?

A:We will still attempt to process your donation without the title, though the process may be a bit more complicated.

Q:I’m donating the vehicle on behalf of Deceased loved one, what do I need to provide?

A:Either a joint tenant with rights of survivorship or the surviving spouse can sign the Title to submit the vehicle to us, but he or she must present a copy of the Death Certificate as well. However, if there is joint ownership and the Title states “or” then only one (1) owner needs to sign it.

If no conjunction or the Title states “and” then survivor must supply a court order or letter of administration signed by a judge (no death cert is needed) and the executor must sign the Title and provide the court order.

Executor – if not signing Title, a Power of Attorney is required.

Q:How do I release the liability and what do I do with my plates?

A:The donor should remove their license plates and registration stickers as they are considered their property. These items are not required to be removed, but is recommended.

Q:Will you take a vehicle that has mechanical problems?

A:Vehicles are reviewed and sent to a processing partner, however if we are unable to find a buyer for the vehicle, we will have to unfortunately decline the donation.

*Boats, RV’s, ATV, Campers or industrial equipment are taken on a case by case basis*
