What is your liability as lien holder of a car?

A lien holder on a car title or car loan just means that person is the full owner of the car. If your car gets totalled or goes into default, the lien holder can retrieve the car from you because they have full ownership of the car. Lien Holders are used for lending purposes. This means the lien holder has no liability responsibility. The registered person on the car is required to have liability coverage on the car according to law and not hold the lien holder liability on the car if the car gets damaged or totaled. Lien Holder means they fully own the vehicle until the loan is paid off.

Yes of course it is. Unless it is the Lien Holder selling the car or if the payment is being made directly to the lien holder.Selling a car with a lien just because you have the title (Liened Tile) in hand is wrong and very unlawful even if the buyer knows it has a lien.Do not give cash to someone selling a car with a lien, that is also illegal if you know they are not the lien holder.
