How to get a continuous GMAC released

When you borrow money to buy a new car, the lender will mortgage the certificate of ownership of that vehicle. This keeps the car, truck or SUV legally owned by the lender until the amount due is paid in full. But often, a borrower decides to sell the car before it is paid off. Even if you’ve paid in full, the title may not reach the message as planned. If your mortgage rights were originally part of GMAC, you should know that GMAC Financial changed its name to Ally Financial in 2010, so you’ll make your release request through Ally.

Collect your documents

Whether you’ve paid off your loan or not, before you can take any steps to free up the mortgage, you’ll need all your information. This includes your vehicle identification number, name on the account, account number, and address on the sovereign paper. Once you’ve got it all together, you’re ready to make the call to Ally.

Contact Ally Financial

To free up your mortgage rights, contact Ally at 888-925-2559 or via chat to receive your refund amount. If you have the money available, you will need to pay the remaining balance to be released from the mortgage. After Ally has enough money, the company will free up your mortgage rights. You can send this custody release notice to your local DMV to receive a Certificate of Ownership for your vehicle.

Title transfer

If you plan to sell the car before paying it off, the mandatory transfer of ownership will make things a little more complicated. If you are directly dealing with the purchase, you can meet the buyer at the ally financial branch and ask them to pay the final amount, at which point the mortgage rights will be released. If there is no branch near you, a bank will be able to help facilitate the transfer of money from the buyer to Ally Financial to free up the mortgage rights. Just be aware that this part of the process can delay trading by several days.

If Ally Financial has a mortgage on your car, you will need to pay the full amount to be freed up of the holding. This can be done through refinancing the loan through another lender, paying the money itself or selling the car and asking the buyer to pay it off. Once you have a mortgage release form on hand, you still need to go to your DMV to receive a copy of ownership in your own name.
