    Default Purchased a Used Vehicle That Has an Out-of-State Lien

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: california

    On october 2nd 2018 i bought a used car from a small dealer/auction lot for 2500 cash. I also paid DMV registration and title fees, hence the dealer can handle that for customers. After 3 months of waiting for my plates and title in the mail i finally get an answer from the dealer that they havent done it yet because their is a lien on the car i bought. So they dont even have the title. If it technically wasnt their car in the first place, was it legal to sell? Mind u the amount that is written on my receipt that i paid for the car is less than what i really paid... Wierd. Also i did a VIN check and their is no reported lien on this vehicle

    So demand they rescind the sale


    but expect to be refunded what your contract says you paid for it.

    What does your contract say about the payoff of liens, and any time table for payoff?

    What sort of auction are we talking about -- for some auctions you get a greater chance of a good deal, but potentially leave yourself with fewer remedies if there is a complication with the sale.
