Undocumented "Bonded" Vehicles

Titles and Salvage Vehicles

A vehicle is considered undocumented when the purchaser does not have all the documents required to transfer ownership and apply for a Certificate of Title. Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90D Section 12 authorizes the Registry to register and title an undocumented vehicle at its discretion. As a condition of issuing a Certificate of Title, the Registry may require the customer to file a bond in an amount equal to one and one half times the National Automobile Dealers Association clean trade-in value of the undocumented vehicle.
