Motor Vehicle Title

Law is effective July 1st, 2015.

Changes in amendments to LA R.S. 32:728. The amendments increase the fees that Motor Vehicles charges for the issuance of a title from $18.50 to$ 68.50. This would involve transactions wherein a new title is issued, for example, when a company is financing the purchase of a vehicle. Additional fees are involved to notate a security interest on a title and the statute has not changed those fees. This is of course our interpretation of the amendments and I would suggest that everyone consult their own attorney regarding these changes.
