Your certificate of title may show liens or interests that are no longer valid.  To learn if those interests will be dropped by the registrar or will require an examiner's directive, please view this document (PDF).

There is no fee for issuing an examiner's directive (recording fees may apply - please see "Requesting a Directive" instructions)
