In most states, you cannot get a lien on a vehicle unless the debtor voluntarily grants one to you. Your other option is to have the vehicle sold at a public auction to help satisfy the debt. * Small claims judgments are generally for monetary recovery only. The judgment can be executed as a wage garnishment or in some states as a bank account levy.

Can a creditor's lawyer place a lien on a financed vehicle in the state of Texas?

When you signed the contract to finance the vehicle, the creditor put a lien on the vehicle. In the rare event that this was not done, it can be done later in some cases.Also, a creditor can place a lien on an already financedvehicle if there is more equity in the vehicle than the amount of the original loan. Generally, a creditor who obtains a judgment lien against you can arrange to place that lien against any property you own in order to satisfy the lien.
