If you are buying a car on payments then there will be a lien on the car. the company will release the lien once the car is paid off.
If the lien is a purchase money lien (granted to allow you to buy the car), then no. If it is a nonpurchase money lien (you granted a lien on the car to secure an unrelated debt), then yes.
The question should be. Should you ever buy a car with a lien on it. The answer is absolutely not, no, not if you are smart.
If you took out a loan from the bank to buy your car, they have a lien on it. For all intents and purposes, they own the car until you have it paid off.
Lien must be satisfied somehow so title can be transferred.

does my car have a lien?
A lien title means that the car has a loan against it. If you do not have a "clear" or non lien title, the lender who hold the clear title can and does have the right to get the balance of the loan from you. The purpose of the lien title is to enable the car buyer to get the legal requirement for driving the car from the state. It's like renting the car in essence; the lien title is almost like the lease agreement for an apartment.So if a lien title is all there is...don't buy the car. It's not his to sell.Somebody has to settle the lien before you can legally own or register the vehicle.
Yes but make sure YOU pay the lien off and don't just pay the seller and hope they will pay it off.
Yes. This happens all the time. If you have a car you're still making payments on (and which will therefore have a lien on it), and you want to buy a new car, as long as your credit is good and you can afford the new payments as well you shouldn't have a problem.
is there a lien on this car
A lien means that someone can seize your property if you do not pay them what you agreed to pay. When banks lend money to buy cars, for instance, they get a "lien" on the car so that the owner cannot sell the car without paying them back.
You cannot file a lien on your own car to prevent another from filing a lien on your car. If you owe someone money they may be able to put a lien on your car so that they are paid in full.
Walk away from this deal.
Contact the lender who had the lien on the car and ask them for a lien release.
what is a lien fee when your car is inpound
Pay off the loan and then request a lien release from the lender who held the lien on the car.
Contact the entity that loaned you the money to buy the car, be it a bank, loan company, etc. If the selling dealer personally loaned you the money then you need to speak to your local DMV and see what you need to do if you cannot contact the seller.
Never, ever buy a car with an outstanding loan. In fact you cannot transfer the title with a lien on it. Walk away from this deal. It is nothing but trouble.
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.
It is illegal to sell a car with a lien on it. If it has a lien you will not be able to register the car in your name. The loan must be paid off and the lien released before you can actually own the car. You may have just got scammed.
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.
yes they can and they do , they actually sell these cars in an auction if they are never picked up. they only state the car has a lien before the car is sold... people that usually buy these cars get them reposesed by the banks. so is a waste of money, to buy any of these vehicles...
It could mean that money is owed on the car and you could lose it if the person defaults. Or it could mean that there is a mistake and the lienholders neglected to discharge the lien. Whatever the case is, don't buy a car that has any liens on it. If you already bought it, contact the lienholder to see if the lien can be discharged.
