It means that someone has borrowed money from a Bank or lending company and used the car as colatoral. Be carefull, if you purchased this car, and that lien is still against it, the lending company can come after you for the money or take the car from you.

Does a lien on property mean it has to be sold in California?

A lien is paid out when the property is sold. It will come out of the proceeds paid to the seller for his recorded lien before a clear title can be issued to the new buyer.

It means the lien holder has not released the lien because it hasn't been paid. You need to do some research. It must have been on the title that was signed over to you at the time of the sale. That is the time to check into clearing the lien.If a lien is listed on the title of a motor vehicle the buyer should not turn over the proceeds to the seller. The lienholder should be contacted for a payoff amount and the paid if necessary. Arrangements should be made at that time to have the lien released.

Who is responsible for a property tax lien that the title company didn't find until after escrow closed?

The Title Co should have found that lien, which mean that the Lenders is not in 1st Lien position,, Title Co's issue a CPL which is a closing protection Letter or E&O. Which protects the lender. The Title Co can request that you settle out the Lien and provide proof. Either way someone has to pay it. I would contact your loan servicer and have them advise you on what to do since they now have an interest. Good Luck


Can the lien against my property be released when the the original owner apparently with a tax debt died.?

Assuming you are talking about an IRS lien, then yes. If you were not liable for the taxes, then the lien should not be on your property. The first thing to determine is whether or not the lien actually attached to your property. If the previous owner of the house owned the house at the time the lien was filed, then the lien probably legally attached to the house. If this is the case, this is something you should take up with the title company that did the title work when you purchased the house. More common is that the IRS filed a lien and the address they had on record was still his old house (your house). Just because the lien had that address on it doesn't mean you have a lien on your house. If the property wasn't his, then it did not legally attach. If a title company still has issues with this (if you are trying to sell your house), you may need to get a Certificate of Non-Attachment from the IRS to show them that it's not attached.


What does a lien on a home mean?

Lien means right on property to keep possession of it till debt due in respect of it is discharged. Thus a Bank has a lien on your property until the ouitstanding mortgage is paid.A lien is a means of "clouding" the title to your property. For example, there are mechanic's liens, tax liens, judgment liens, etc. If you have a lien on your property, that lien must be satisfied before you can reap the benefit of a sale of that property. In other words, you must "clear" the title (by paying sums due or performing) before you can pass that property through sale, etc. A title company can help you with this.

How do you sell a car with a lien on it?

If you sell it for the amount owed, it's little trouble. Just send in the payoff amount and a letter requesting release of lien status and the title. Once the financial intitution has finished it's paperwork, you'll get title in the mail (you can request it be sent express, but you'll have to pay for shipping). Then just sign it over to the new owner. If you sell it for LESS than you owe, you'll have to pay off the difference. The buyer doesn't want a car with a lien on it. It doesn't mean you have to pay it off out of pocket; you could use another form of credit (credit card, personal loan from the same bank, home equity loan, etc.). The bottom line is you have to pay off the loan to get the title, and you have to have the title to complete the sale.


What does it mean if there are two liens on the title of a car you buy?
