Basically a lien is money you owe someone, be it from purchasing the car or a loan you put you car up to get.


Answer by  Danie (993)

A lien can happen when you do not pay the loan on time. If this is the case you should speak to the lender.

It means that the car is security for a debt. Basically, you will be unable to sell, refinance or trade your car until the lien is removed.
