Rep: 10 ian_zhangty is on a distinguished road
Question Lien was reported from the car I am interested in

Dear all,

I am now interested in one used car from Craigslist. I checked the autoCheck report, which report me two events:

Fleet, rental and/or lease use record(s)
Loan/Lien record(s)

I can understand the first one which means the car was used to rent.
But does the second means the car is still have unpaid lien on it? BTW, on Craigslist website, it is clear title

By checking history: (I think this is the current car owner)
08/19/2010 MAIZE, KS
33,910
Motor Vehicle Dept. TITLE (Title #:ETITLE) (Lien Reported)
08/19/2010 MAIZE, KS

Motor Vehicle Dept. REGISTRATION EVENT/RENEWAL
09/13/2011 MAIZE, KS

Motor Vehicle Dept. REGISTRATION EVENT/RENEWAL
09/27/2012 MAIZE, KS

Motor Vehicle Dept. REGISTRATION EVENT/RENEWAL
09/17/2013 MAIZE, KS

Motor Vehicle Dept. REGISTRATION EVENT/RENEWAL

Thank you very much

If it says there's a lien, then yes. Pretty self explanatory.

Clear title can have a lien.

Just means the owner hasn't paid off the loan yet. Probably plans to do so when you pay him.
