Once the form is submitted you can expect to be able to manage your South Carolina electronic liens within several days. Easy instructions are included in the file.
DMV TITLE APPLICATION FORM 400 SC DMV Title Application
The South Carolina DMV Form 400 is commonly used by dealers when selling a vehicle and placing a lien in their business name or another finance company's name. We encourage you to read the form completely for instructions, but generally the dealer registers the title in the name of the customer and uses Section F to add the lienholder's information, including the required DMV ID Number (if you're a lienholder and don't have an ELT DMV ID Number, register for South Carolina ELT service and then complete DMV Form 400).
