Buying a brand new car through financing is easy because there will always be a bank, an automotive dealer or an automotive sales executive who will assist you in this process. But do you know what to do after you have fully paid your auto loan?
Here are the steps to do after full payment of your "AUTO LOAN"
1) Release of Chattel Mortgage and Original LTO Certificate of Registration with
Official Receipt (Encumbered)
Go to the Head Office of the Bank that financed your auto loan and claim the following documents (expect to pay the Notary Fee)
a) Release of Chattel Mortgage and copy of Promissory Note
b) Original LTO Certificate of Registration (CRE) and Official Receipt (OR)
Processing Time: I suggest that you call the bank first. Find out when they can release the above documents.
I just paid-off my auto loan with Union Bank of the Philippines. They have advised me that I could get the Release of Chattel Mortgage & the original LTO Certificate of Registration (Encumbered) at their Head Office in Ortigas after 10 working days.

2) CANCELLATION OF CHATTEL MORTGAGE
Go to the Register of Deeds in your area of residence, submit the "Release of Chattel
Mortgage with Promissory Note". (there is a minimal fee to paid here). The Register of Deeds will issue you the cancelled Chattel Mortgage..
Processing Time: Cancellation of Chattel Mortgage varies with every City and Municipality. There was a time when you can receive the cancelled Chattel Mortgage within one day. In fact, I assisted a client to get his at the Register of Deeds in Mandaluyong City and we only waited for an hour. My husband and I assisted another client to get his at the Register of Deeds in Quezon City and he was advised to come back after 3 working days.
3) UNENCUMBER THE ORIGINAL LTO CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION
Go to the LTO Agency that issued your LTO Certificate of Registration.
You can find this information at the heading of your LTO Certificate of Registration.
You need to bring the unit for inspection and stenciling. (There are corresponding
Fees for this procedure)
a) Submit your "Release of Chattel Mortgage" that has been duly stamped
"cancelled" by the Register of Deeds and your OR of payment for the Cancellation
b) Surrender your "ENCUMBERED" Original LTO Certificate of Registration
c) The LTO Agency will release a new LTO Certificate of Registration to you that no
longer has the word "ENCUMBERED" on it.
Processing Time: Please ask the LTO Agency you are dealing with, if you could
wait for the Unencumbered LTO CR or if not, when can you return for it.
4) You now have your original LTO Certificate of Registration. Keep it properly.
Keep your original LTO Certificate of Registration and the latest LTO Official Receipt
with your personal documents in a secured place. Keep a copy of these in your
vehicle. You are now the proud owner of a unencumbered vehicle. SMILE! :)
