Title Verification

How it works:

  • Title work and lien releases sent to KADA and received by 1:30 p.m. are hand-carried to the Kansas Department of Revenue the following business day (Monday-Friday).
  • The Department of Revenue “front counter” processes all of KADA’s "rush" title work while non-urgent title work is completed upstairs by additional KDOR staff.
  • "Rush" Title Work will be picked up and mailed back to the dealer on the same day whereas non-urgent title work is normally returned to KADA within one week of drop-off and then mailed to the dealer. "Rush" Title work can be requested for an additional service fee of $9.50/$13.00 non- members. If same day mail-back is not requested, titles will normally be mailed back the following business day.
  • If there is a problem with your title work, KADA will immediately contact you regarding what additional information is needed in order to complete the transaction.
  • KADA service fee invoices are normally mailed to customers the same day titles are mailed.
