Someone other than the owner can pass off the title as their own
If you happen to lose your title certificate, and someone else finds it, they can attempt to sell your vehicle. If they succeed, the unsuspecting buyer will become the new owner when they register the vehicle. A misplaced, lost or stolen title can allow thieves and title forgers to pass off your title as their own.
In Florida, trailers weighing less than 2,000 pounds don’t need to be titled
Aside from passenger cars, almost every type of vehicle has a title, from motorcycles and pickup trucks to SUVs, electric vehicles, RVs, motorhomes, and the like. In some states, moped, trailers, ATVs and more don’t have a title. If you happen to have misplaced your vehicle title, or you think it’s lost or stolen, apply for a title replacement which is also called a duplicate title immediately.
A duplicate title will void the lost/stolen title
Once you have your new title, the original one will be voided. With a new car title in hand, you can sell your vehicle when you’re ready with the proper documentation for the next buyer, releasing you of any responsibility once the title transfer is done between the two of you.
