The Lake County Title Bureau assists the public with the issuance and out-of-state transfer of titles for all types of motor vehicles and watercraft. We also issue duplicate titles, file/record/remove satisifed liens on titles, maintain titled vehicle records, notarize title documents, and conduct title searches. We are pleased to announce that the Lake County Title Bureau began offering watercraft registration services as of March 1, 2023!
The Lake County Title Bureau’s Transfer on Death (TOD) offerings allow the designation of a beneficiary on your title, which alleviates the involvement of the Probate Court in determining surviving spouse and rights of survivorship matters. Plus, your beneficiary will not be required to pay taxes a second time!
The Lake County Title Bureau is also a Passport Acceptance Agency for the U.S. Department of State. We have a stellar reputation as a Passport Acceptance Agency with a certified score of 100% from the U.S. Department of State. We are a one-stop shop and can even take your passport photo!
