Adds an exception to subsection (b), which establishes a 30-year automatic expiration of a security interest in a manufactured home that is perfected by a notation on the certificate of title, to allow a different maturity date to control if one is stated on the title. Amends subsection (c) to account for the extension of the original maturity date of the security interest in the provisions setting out automatic expiration of a security interest. Makes clarifying changes to subsections (b) and (c).

    Allows the Division to request the certificate of title from the party in possession for the purpose of notating the original or extended maturity date of the security interest (previously, required the Division to obtain title from the party to notate the date of the original security interest, the renewal of the perfection, and the date of renewal) if the existing certificate of title is in the possession of a prior secured party.

    Requires the Division to cancel the existing certificate of title and issue a new certificate of title if the existing certificate is not obtained upon request (previously, if title cannot be obtained). Requires the new certificate of title to list all known security interests and bear notation that shows the original or extended maturity date of the security interest (previously, also required notation to show the date of the original security interest, the renewal of the perfection, and the date of renewal).

    Amends subsection (f) to require each renewed security interest to retain its original date of perfection, and the perfection is to thereafter expire on the earlier of: (1) 10 years after the date of renewal of the perfection of the security interest, (2) 90 days after the original maturity date of the security interest if the original maturity date has not been extended, or (3) 90 days after any extended maturity date stated on the application of renewal (previously, either 10 years after the date of renewal of perfection or the original or extended maturity date).

    Enacts new subsection (g) to establish that the Division is not subject to a claim under Article 31 of GS Chapter 143 (Tort Claims against State Departments and Agencies) related to the renewal of the perfection of a security interest on a certificate of title for a manufactured home pursuant to the statute if the claim is based on a reliance by the Division on any application for renewal submitted to the Division by a third party pursuant to the statute.

    Amends GS 20-58.4, concerning the release of a security interest in a vehicle, to make technical changes by reformatting the revisions provided in the previous edition to subsection (e), but retains the language of the previous edition. Also moves part of the revisions of the previous edition to subsection (e) to new subsection (e1). Makes clarifying changes. Deletes the previous language of new subsection (f) and replaces it with language identical to new GS 20-58.3A(g), as described above, concerning claims under Article 31 of GS Chapter 143.

    Amends GS 20-85(a), which sets out a fee schedule for certificate of title, registration card, and registration plate concerns for a motor vehicle, by making the $15 fee in subdivision (8) applicable to each application for renewing a security interest on a certificate of title or removing a lien or security interest from a certificate of title (currently, fee is applicable to each application for removing a lien from a certificate of title).

    Amends GS 20-109.2(d), concerning the application for title after cancellation of title under the statute, to add that the owner must also submit to the Division verification of the identity of the current owner of the real property upon which the manufactured home was located, in addition to the existing requirements. Requires the Division, upon receipt of the required information, together with a title application and required fee, to issue a new title for the manufactured home in the name of the current owner of the real property upon which the manufactured home was located (previously, authorizes the Division to issue a new title for the manufactured home). Effective August 1, 2016, and applies to titles issued on or after that date.

    Deletes the provisions of Section 8 of the previous edition, which allowed the Legislative Research Commission to study the law and process related to manufactured housing title and security interests.
