Title 75 - REGULATION OF TRADE, COMMERCE AND INVESTMENTS
Chapter 67 - LOANS
Article 9 - TITLE PLEDGE ACT
§ 75-67-417 - Presentation of title pledge transaction form; lost, destroyed, or stolen forms
(1) Any person presenting identification of himself and presenting the pledgor's copy of the title pledge transaction form to the title pledge lender is presumed to be entitled to redeem the pledged property described in the title pledge lender transaction form; provided, however, that if the title pledge lender determines that the person is not the original pledgor, the title pledge lender is not required to allow the redemption of the pledged property by such person. The person redeeming the pledged property must sign the pledgor's copy of the title pledge transaction form, which the title pledge lender may retain to evidence such person's receipt of the pledged property. If the person redeeming the pledged property is not the original pledgor, that person must show identification to the title pledge lender, and the title pledge lender shall record the person's name and address on the title pledge transaction form retained by the title pledge lender. The title pledge lender shall not be liable to the original pledgor for having allowed the redemption of the pledged property by another person pursuant to this subsection (1).
(2) If the pledgor's copy of the title pledge transaction form is lost, destroyed or stolen, the pledgor must notify the title pledge lender in writing by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, or in person evidenced by a signed receipt, and receipt of this notice shall invalidate such title pledge transaction form if the pledged property has not previously been redeemed. Before delivering the pledged property or issuing a new title pledge transaction form, the title pledge lender shall require the pledgor to make a written statement of the loss, destruction or theft of the pledgor's copy of the title pledge transaction form. The title pledge lender shall record on the written statement the type of identification and the identification number accepted from the pledgor, the date the statement is given and the number of the title pledge transaction form lost, destroyed or stolen. The statement shall be signed by the title pledge lender or the title pledge office employee who accepts the statement from the pledgor. A title pledge lender is entitled to a fee not to exceed Five Dollars ($ 5.00) in connection with each such lost, destroyed or stolen title pledge transaction form and the taking of a properly prepared written statement.
(3) No sales tax shall be deemed due or collectible in connection with the redemption of pledged property under this article.
