I don't know the answer to this question, but save your $25.00.

Carfax does NOT provide lienhlder information. They will only tell you if and when a lien was ever placed on the vehicle.

CONTACT A LIEN SERVICE THAT WORKS WITH ALL STATES. autolienservice.com

To find the lien holder of a vehicle, the registered owner of the vehicle will have to apply for a duplicate title. The VIN will be necessary to obtain the duplicate title. The lien holder will be listed on the duplicate title.

you will have to find out who has a lein on it have them fill out a fourm of lein satisfy. In most states a lien holder is recorded on the title and the lien holder will keep the title until the lien is paid off. After the lien holder is paid off, they will sign the title to release the lien and give/send the title to the owner. The title office can tell you who has a lien on the title.

If the car has a lien, you usually have to pay off the lien before you can get a clear title. Otherwise, in this state you have the name of the lien holder on the title.

You don't. The only one who can fill out a lien relese is the lien holder. As the owner of the car you are not the lien holder. Take the title to whomever holds the lien and they will release it.

If you are making a payment, whoever you are making the payment to holds a lien on the vehicle, unless the vehicle was purchased on an unsecure note (not likely). Some states will issue you a title even though there is a lien holder on the title, some require that the lien holder holds the title until the not is paid in full. Look at the title, itf the lien holder section is filled out, that is who holds the lien, they can have the car repoed. there is no lien holder on the title it is clear the car lot is in the sellers area

A lien holder is someone who has a financial interest in a car. It could be the bank you financed it from, or someone else who the car owner owes money to. The car owner's name is on the title with the lien holder's name so that you can't sell the car without the lien holder signing the title...this means that you don't owe the lien holder any money on the car. The car is now 100% owned by the title owner.

The name of the lien holder should be written on the certificate of title. You can also check the status of the title by visiting your state department of motor vehicles website. You can also visit the local office and ask the clerk to run a check for you.

Apply for a replacement or duplicate. You can apply for a replacement, but the title will most likely be sent to the lien holder. If that happens, you need to call the lien holder to let them know that it will be coming and to let you know when they get it. If it is sent to you, then you will need to take it to the lien holder and have them sign off on it again.

You need to obtain a release from the estate of the lien holder. Which means you have to satisfy the lien. That should allow you to obtain clear title.

Your lien holder wants to be paid before releasing the car. You should consult with the attorney who is representing you in your bankruptcy. You cannot transfer title because you don't have clear title to transfer.

A vehicle with a lien holder named on the title cannot be traded, transferred or sold without the title being cleared by the lien holder.

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.

The lein holder does not have the key to your car. They will have a title that you will be sent.

You have the title, but I bet on that title the lender you own money to is listed as the lien holder. He can repossess the car at any time if you miss payments. Having the title means nothing.You have the title, but I bet on that title the lender you own money to is listed as the lien holder. He can repossess the car at any time if you miss payments.

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. If the seller has a problem with you paying the creditor directly they are probably a crook!

This is an almost impossibility, unless the title has been doctored. If "the company" sold person A the car, the title contains that company's name as a lien holder, which means that the car cannot be transferred to another person without the approval of "the company". Look at a car title from a dealership, for example, and see what color it is. Then look at a title for a vehicle that is paid for and is free and clear. The dealership title has the dealership name on it as the lien holder, different color title. The free and clear title has no lien holder and is a different color. If a car has been sold with a lien holder, person A is responsible for payment for the car, regardless of who is driving it.

You cannot sell a car you have a loan on if the lender has a lien on the vehicle. You will need permission from the lien holder to sell the car. If the lender has no lien on the vehicle then you can sell it if you wish. The title will list any lien holder.

User Avatar

it should say so on the title paper of the vehicle or you can call the dept of motor veh. reg. and ask them if they have a lien holder on file for that vehicle.

User Avatar

Not unless the title has been cleared by the lien holder.

User Avatar

If there is a lien it is normally listed on the Title.
