These instances are reason enough for the increase in Pinoy owning a new car, therefore, as soon as they have fully paid the mortgage or financing of their installment payments with financing companies and banks, these owners also opt in to apply for car cancellation of mortgage. But for what purposes could this process or document be?

car loan without taking carThe first and primary reason for mortgage cancellation in the OR CR is that the car owner wanted to sell his car later. The second reason is that the owner wanted to use his or her vehicle for car loan. Many lending companies today, including banks offer auto loan without taking car so they need the certificate of registration clean without the encumbrancy notation.

Because of this, LTO has recently been adding up applications for removal due to loan purposes of vehicle owners. In a short interview, 2 of the most active private lending companies offering this type of collateral loan in the Philippines are Global Dominion and Asialink Finance. Apart from banks, these lending companies offer taking only the original copy of the OR CR and not the material vehicle in applying and using it to file or apply for a loan to get fast cash.
