California Duplicate Titles

Esquire Titling’s Service Fee: $125.00
Plus, the following DMV Fees:
Duplicate Title fee $23.00
Planned Non-Operation fee
(due only if registration expired in dealer inventory - to avoid paying registration renewal)
Transfer of Ownership fee
(due if you want the new title issued in the dealership’s name)
Registration Renewal fees & Penalties
(may be due if registration expired before going into inventory)

Note: Esquire Titling requires payment in advance for duplicate title reconstruction. Our fee is earned in full upon contracting with us and is not refundable, even if you subsequently find the lost title. In many case, a duplicate title cannot be issued because we are unsuccessful in obtaining the registered owner’s signatures or lien release. In this case, we will provide you with certified letters, return receipt requested, which satisfies the California DMV’s "diligent effort" requirement and allows you obtain a "Defective Title Bond." This means the California DMV will issue a new title even though the old title is lost. In this circumstance, Esquire Titling’s fee is earned in full even though a duplicate title was never obtained.
