Regarding Title Application Change


The DR 2395 Title and/or Registration Application has been changed to require all vehicle owners to declare their intent of Joint Tenancy with Rights of Survivorship (JTWROS) or Tenants in Common. The following changes will be made:

 The DR 2395 (Rev 02/22/11) changes include:

  • Joint Tenancy with Rights of Survivorship Acknowledgement of Intent page has been added
  • Signature line for all owners acknowledging intent
  • Date of signature line for each owner
  • The Verification of Vehicle Identification Number page has been removed and made a separate form number DR 2698
  • Additional boxes have been added for Lienholders to add a different address for the title to be mailed. If no address is provided, the title will be mailed to the first lienholder name and address provided on the Title and/or Registration Application.
  • Confidentiality statement added to the application for compliance with Colorado Revised Statute (C.R.S.) 42-2-121 (4)(a)
  • “Any Alteration or Erasure in this Area May Void this Document” wording has been added and will apply to the top portion of the application only
  • An area for “County Use Only” has been added below the application for clerks to use as a worksheet

 A title in JTWROS will only be issued if all owners declare their intent as such on either the DR2395 or DR 2574 form. If any owner chooses Tenants in Common or has not declared their intent, the title will be issued with Tenants in Common.

 Please refer to 38-11-101, C.R.S., for additional information on joint tenancy.

 Previous versions of the DR 2395 dated 06/30/09 may be accepted until July 1, 2011. On and after July 1, 2011, only the 02/22/11 version of the DR 2395 will be accepted in order to acknowledge intent.

 If you currently title all of your vehicles as Tenants in Common, this change will NOT affect you. However, the majority of the titles processed in our county are titles as JTWROS! You may call our office at 438-5421 to have a copy of this form faxed to you or you may go online to Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles, Forms & Publications, Form # DR 2395 and print this form. As of July 1, 2011, if all parties/owners assigned on the title are not coming in to our office at the time of processing the title, this form MUST be signed prior to coming in to our office. If not, the title will be processed as Tenants in Common. Please feel free to contact our office is you have any questions.
