Nebraska Revised Statute 60-141
Dealer; inventory; certificates required; when.
A dealer need not apply for certificates of title for any vehicles in stock or acquired for stock purposes, but upon transfer of such vehicle in stock or acquired for stock purposes, the dealer shall give the transferee a reassignment of the certificate of title on such vehicle or an assignment of a manufacturer's or importer's certificate. If all reassignments on the manufacturer's or importer's certificate have been used, the dealer may attach a dealer assignment form prescribed by the department prior to any subsequent transfer. If all reassignments on the dealer assignment form or the certificate of title have been used, the dealer shall obtain title in the dealer's name prior to any subsequent transfer. No dealer shall execute a reassignment on or transfer ownership by way of a manufacturer's statement of origin unless the dealer is franchised by the manufacturer of the vehicle.
Purchasers, other than dealers, must acquire certificate of title. State Farm Mutual Auto Ins. Co. v. Drawbaugh, 159 Neb. 149, 65 N.W.2d 542 (1954).
Concluding proviso does not exempt dealer from having mortgage lien noted on certificate of title. Bank of Keystone v. Kayton, 155 Neb. 79, 50 N.W.2d 511 (1951).
A motor vehicle mortgage lien, not shown on certificate of title, is not valid against subsequent holder of mortgage lien shown on the certificate. Securities Credit Corp. v. Pindell, 153 Neb. 298, 44 N.W.2d 501 (1950).
