No. Dont ever pay for a vehicle without having a title. If they owe money on it, they need to pay it off and get the title before you give them any money. If it is a local lienholder, offer to go with them to pay it off to make sure you are going to get the title and make sure the lienholder understands that the title will need to be signed over to you if you decide to pay it off while you are there. Get something in writing from the lienholder that the title will be sent to you if the title isn't readily available to be picked up at that moment.
