Possible lien on purchased vehicle
by: Mary

Issues related to liens are not subjects that we address on our site, which focuses only on debt collection matters. However, I will give you a brief answer to your question. You can go to your state's department of motor vehicles to find out about any liens that may be on the jeep that you bought. I also believe you can obtain a very extensive history of the jeep, including information about any outstanding liens at Carfax.com.

I want to warn you however, that you will not be able to get clear title to the vehicle you bought as long as there are any outstanding liens on the jeep. Also, the information you are seeking now is information you should have gotten prior to buying the jeep. It's part of doing your due diligence so you can be sure that you are not buying problems as well as a vehicle.
