Note: The vehicle must be titled in at least either the borrower or co-borrower’s name. No individuals may be listed on the title unless they have signed the security agreement.

  • Non-Titled Vehicles
Certain vehicles require Uniform Commercial Code [UCC] filings to ensure Farm Bureau Bank’s interest as lienholder. Contact your state agency for information.

  • NON-ELT LIENHOLDER INFORMATION
    Farm Bureau Bank
    PO Box 33427
    San Antonio, TX 78265
NOTE: Your state titling agency is the best source of information regarding specialty or unique titling needs.  Again, congratulations on your new purchase, and we appreciate the trust you have placed in us here at YOUR Bank.
Farm Bureau Bank requires members to handle the titling process in order to provide the benefits of registering their vehicles and avoiding penalty fees from the state titling agency.

Typically, dealers are required to record Farm Bureau Bank as lienholder on the vehicle being purchased. For private party purchases it is the responsibility of the member (or buyer) to contact their state titling agency for more information on all documents and fees necessary to title the vehicle.

Please refer to How do I add the Farm Bureau Bank as a lienholder on the title? for detailed information.

The bank processes all titles within five (5) business days of being paid in full. If your loan is paid in full with a personal check or via ACH it will be released after 10 business days. If your title is electronic, it may take longer as it is your state’s responsibility to release your title after receiving notification from the bank. The timing for receiving titles varies by state.

If you plan to finance your new vehicle with us, the dealer will send payoff for the vehicle you are trading and the bank will send the remaining balance to the dealer to apply towards your purchase. We will release the lien of the traded vehicle and send separately, in most cases to the dealer.

If you do not plan to finance your new vehicle will us, the payoff from the dealer will be applied to the vehicle you are trading in. Farm Bureau Bank will then release the lien after 10 business days of the traded vehicle and send separately, in most cases to the dealer.

Specialty type vehicles (i.e., ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles, jet skis, certain boats, boat trailers & boat motors, etc.) that do not issue titles will require a Uniform Commercial Code [UCC] filing to secure our interest as lienholder. Please visit your state’s website or titling agency for complete instructions.

There is a $100.00 fee for expedited services. If you pay by wire and your title is not an ELT (electronic) we can release the title in three (3) business days and mail it overnight. If the loan is paid by ACH or by check, we will release the title in 10 business days and mail it overnight.

Please contact us at 1.800.492.3276, between the hours of 7 am – 7 pm CST, Monday – Friday with additional questions or for account-specific inquiries.
