Default How to remove a lien when buying a car

I'm in the process in making an offer on an 04 Sti. The car looks and runs fine and has a clean history but the owner still has a lien on the title. Does anybody know what the process is on having the lien removed? This is a private sale. I plan to pay for the car with a combination of cash and my line of credit. I believe the bank usually takes care of it if I opted for an auto loan but with the line of credit i'm on my own.

Either he pays off what he owes before you buy it or I believe you can find out what he owes and pay directly (to be sure the lein comes off).

The lien usually results from them financing the car. When you buy the car you need to make sure that they use the money to clear the lien or else the debt becomes your debt.

Typical way is to issue dual payee bank draft, ie. named to both seller and the company or bank that owns the lien. That way, the seller will not be able to clear the draft by himself and have to though the financing company.

Hope this help
