DC and MD title question before buying a used vechicle? - March 29, 2016, 09:16 AM

I am in VA and well aware of a 'clean' title from Virginia and how it looks like and all.

But wanted to ask about 'clean and clear title' in MD and DC and how it looks like?

  1. In MD or DC, if the title is salvage or has a Lien, does it state/say on the title or no?
  2. For a clean title, it would just say seller name, address, vehicle info and that's it, correct?


Would appreciate your input and feedback. Thank you.

Maryland has a salvage certificate which is green rather than the blue of a regular title and it says clearly "maryland certificate of salvage" at the top (http://www.mva.maryland.gov/_resourc...DR.pdf#page=14). Also, note that if a maryland vehicle had a lien on it that was paid off there will actually be 2 pieces of paper, the title that was held by the lienholder and the paper that the purchaser keeps.

DC titles have an R or S listed in the title type if it's a Reconstructed, or Salvage title.

Also, just as a small piece of mind if buying from DC. If someone titles an R or S title in DC, the title history, and vehicle itself get inspected by the police department before the will issue a new DC title. So DC isn't a title washing state (or district)

MD might do the same. But I've never dealt with an R or S in MD. I have in DC.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.
