What is the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form?

The New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form, or Form TMDV18, is a document released by the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles for the purpose of New Hampshire residents to duplicate their vehicle titles.

A Duplicate Certificate of Title is filed and applied for when a vehicle’s legal owner has had their original Certificate of Title lost, damaged, altered, or stolen. When a vehicle owner applies for a duplicate title and they have received the replacement, their original Certificate of Title automatically becomes invalid and, in the event that the original title is found again, cannot be used anymore. The original title cannot be used for transferring ownership if the legal owner decides to sell, gift, or donate their vehicle or when they are encumbering their vehicle. In this case, they must use their replacement Certificate of Title.

Moreover, a Duplicate Certificate of Title contains all of the information that was stated and present in the original Certificate of Title.

What is the purpose of the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form?

The purpose of the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form is for New Hampshire residents to replace their original Certificate of Title in the event that it has been lost, stolen, damaged, altered, or mutilated beyond legibility.

Certificate of Titles are used as proof of legal ownership of vehicle/s and are a necessary document for the legal owner to have if they ever plan on selling, gifting, or donating their vehicle/s.

Who should file the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form?

When will I receive my replacement Certificate of Title after filing and submitting the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form?

Once the New Hampshire DMV has received your duplicate title application and has processed your request, your replacement Certificate of Title will be sent to you within three (3) to five (5) days.

You may have your replacement Certificate of Title mailed to a New Hampshire licensed dealer if you, the vehicle’s legal owner, allow so in the “Authorization for Mailing” portion of the application form.

It should be noted that, if there are different owners of the vehicle, the shipment and mailing of the replacement Certificate of Title will be different.

  • For Joint Ownership:

If the vehicle has two listed legal owners on the original Certificate of Title, both of the legal owners will need to sign the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form to receive a replacement. It should be noted that the replacement title will be sent to the first listed legal owner of the vehicle.

If the vehicle has a lien recorded at the time it was purchased, the legal owner has to present a Release of Lien document that has been signed by the lienholder. The lien release is required and needs to be attached and submitted with the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application.

How should you fill out the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form?

To fill out the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form, start by reporting the reason as to why you are filing for a duplicate Certificate of Title - meaning what happened to your original Certificate of Title.

Next, using the LAST, FIRST, MIDDLE NAME format, state your full name.

Next, you (and your co-owner, if applicable), must state your birth dates using the mm//dd/yyyy format.

Next, provide your full mailing address or Box No. Include your city or town, your state, and your state’s ZIP code.

Next, state your legal address if it is not the same as your mailing address.

Next, report your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

The next set of questions will ask for information about your vehicle. Fill the boxes out accurately. For questions 15 and 16, only fill it out if your vehicle is a motor vehicle.

For the next set of questions in the form, only fill it out if your vehicle has any liens that need to be released. If you don’t, simply write N/A in the line asking for the Lienholder’s name and move on to the signing section of the form. For question 18, fill it out if your vehicle is a motor vehicle.

  • Lienholder’s full name
  • Lienholder’s address, including their city or town, state, and ZIP Code.

For the final section of the New Hampshire Duplicate Title Application form, it is important that you (and your co-owner) read first the penalty listed below before signing the form.

Once you (and your co-owner) have read and understood the penalty, you, other co-owners, or the lienholder of the vehicle (if applicable) must affix your signatures to the line provided. Also, report the date of signing.

Below the section of signatures, if you are authorizing to mail the duplicate Certificate of Title to a licensed dealer, tick the box certifying you are allowing so, then affix the dealer’s name, their number, and their address.

If the owner of the vehicle is a corporation, partnership, or another association, the individual who signed Box 19 (owner/s or lienholder) must certify under penalty of perjury that he/she is authorized to sign on behalf of the owner.

Then, that individual must then affix their name and print their company name to the lines provided.
