§ 13-204. Assignment

  • (a) Assignment authorized; protection of person without notice; continuing liability of secured party. -- A secured party may assign, absolutely or otherwise, any part of his security interest in a vehicle to a person other than its owner, without affecting the interest of the owner or the validity of the security interest.

    • (1) The assignee shall deliver to the Administration the certificate of title, if available, and an assignment by the secured party named in the certificate of title in the form that the Administration requires, accompanied by the same filing fee as is required for perfection of the security interest under ยง 13-202 of this subtitle.

    • (2) The assignee's security interest is perfected at the time of its creation, if the delivery and payment to the Administration are completed within 10 days of the date of its creation. Otherwise, the security interest is perfected at the time of the delivery and payment.
