No

Normally that is how it is done. If the holder will not sign, you would need to sue and ask the court to issue a declaratory judgment/order holding you as the owner and transferring title back to you. You can hire a local lawyer to expedite this, and the threat of lawsuit may prompt the holder to sign to avoid legal fees and lost time.
