Remember to use the proper lien code when titling
Published June 22, 2012
GM Financial lien codes are available so that our GM dealers can complete all title work
using the GM Financial name.
In many states, a title correction is a costly and time consuming process. Providing the proper
lien code on the title reduces the number of errors made. It also ensures that our lien is perfected
as quickly as possible so that we are in compliance with our securitization covenants.
To find your state's lien code, please refer to Exhibit A on the GM Financial External
Rate Sheet and Underwriting Guidelines which can be accessed from DealerTrack, RouteOne, GM
GlobalConnect (Located on the GM Financial brand page. Simply click on the GM Financial logo
on the home page). Please note, not all states have an assigned lien code.
