A person can have several liens in their names and still have a car put in their names.... NOW, if we are talking a bad debt lien, it will depend on the lender. It is best to be up front with the finance person first--they would know if they have a lender who will over look the lien. As far as buying the car from an individual--it shouldn't matter.
