A carrier’s lien is a lien on the property of a vehicle that has been leased by an auto dealer. The lien is a legally binding agreement between the dealer and the carrier.
In order to purchase a vehicle, you must show that the vehicle is not exempt from the lien of the car dealer. You need to make sure that you do not “sell a lemon” or otherwise violate the rights of the vehicle owner to sell or lease a vehicle in this state.
One example of a vehicle that does not have a lien may be a car that was returned to the manufacturer after the dealer had returned it to you due to a defect. In this instance, you could purchase the car from the manufacturer and not the dealer. When you purchase a used car from a dealer, they will then take care of the lien. However, the car dealer is the one who holds the lien and is the person who can decide what to do with the vehicle.
Some car dealers have no obligation to give back a vehicle to the vehicle owner. If the dealer does not honor a car owner’s rights, then the dealer can get involved and pursue the vehicle owner.
There are ways that you can protect yourself against the possibility of being sold a car by a car dealer and not pay for the vehicle, if that happens. If the car dealer has given you a car title but then sold you a used car, they are legally required to give you a vehicle identification number (VIN).
After you obtain the car title, you can request a copy of your VIN from your lender. A reputed lending company that deals with used cars can help you obtain the VIN for the vehicle you are interested in buying. This is because these lending companies will make sure that the VIN for the vehicle they are selling matches the one on the vehicle title.
Another option you have is to obtain a copy of your VIN through the dealership where you purchased the car. This is so that if you are sued for any claim relating to the vehicle, you will be able to prove that the vehicle title and the title of the dealership are your two own. and that you did not sell the car.
If you choose to proceed with a purchase from a dealership instead of purchasing a vehicle directly from a private party, be sure to ask them to give you a copy of your car title. at the time you sign the deal. If they refuse, call a lawyer that specializes in vehicle repossession law and have them prove that the vehicle title you signed is the car title.
If you are unable to prove this fact, then the dealer will have the right to have the car title cancelled and the repossessed vehicle. This means that you will still need to pay for the vehicle, but you cannot use the vehicle or take possession of it. until the court rules in your favor and restores the car title. In many cases, this will be a few days or even weeks depending on how fast your lawyer can get you the right information.
Before making a decision about which of the legal options available to you, it is always best to talk with a legal expert about the subject. Because these experts are well versed in the laws of the various states, they can often help you determine what your options are and what the best course of action is. Even if you do not want to go through with a full repossession, they may be able to help you get a temporary restraining order that will stop the dealer from repossessing the car until your case can be resolved.
If the repossession is stopped, you are still not finished paying for the vehicle and you do not intend to pay it back, you may be able to negotiate an amicable repayment plan between you and the creditor. They can help you get the car back by paying you interest only or in full for the loan that you took out.
You will want to keep the vehicle as long as you can and then sell it as soon as possible. When you decide to sell the car, keep in mind that you may need to get rid of the vehicle before you are able to repay the loan you took out on it because the dealer will still hold the lien on the vehicle.
