Text Search


Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

32-3-33Change of county of use of vehicle--Issuance of duplicate for filing by treasurer--Validity of liens.

If, after a certificate of title has been issued for a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer, the county in which it is kept for use shall be changed, then upon application of the owner, so stating, the secretary may authorize the transfer of the duplicate certificate of title from the office of the treasurer of the county in which it was formerly kept to the county where the motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer is presently kept. Thereafter the county treasurer of the county in which such duplicate title certificate is transferred shall perform the duties imposed by this chapter. However, the keeping of a duplicate certificate of title in the office of the treasurer of a county in which the motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer is not actually kept may not affect the validity of the title or of any contract, lien, or encumbrance upon the motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer described in the certificate.
