ELT in Michigan
The Michigan Department of State has not yet put an Electronic Lien & Title Program (ELT) in place. (The Secretary of State in Michigan oversees vehicle title and registration.) Work is in progress on an ELT program for the state, but specific details have not been announced.
The ELT program changes the lien and title process for lenders (bankers, credit unions, dealers, and other financial institutions) as lenders no longer need to store and file paper titles.
More details will be posted here as they are finalized by the state. Please also see the FAQS page.
