I recently planed to purchase a car. And a BMW 2013 X6 came into my vision. Everything about the car was satisfying expect the lien/loan recorded shown in the Autocheck report. I talked to the Owner of the car, private seller, he told me that the loan was created at the time when he purchased the car, and it was already paid off about a year ago. So, my question is, will he be able to sell the car with loan/lien? Will I face any loan or lien if I purchase the car?
They will have to give you a title when you purchase the car. If there is a lien-holder, it should be listed on the title. If you have the VIN #, then you are able to check if it there is a titleholder with the RMV. If it is not recorded, then you are Bonafide Purchaser of the vehicle and should not be subjected by a lien. https://secure.rmv.state.ma.us/TitleLookup/intro.aspx

You will want proof that the lienholder has released the lien, although usually, the fact that the seller is in possession of title indicates that the lien has been satisifed.
