I have a buyer for my Ford Taurus and there is a lien from Ford Credit.
How do I transfer the title/get the lien removed quickly? Ford Credit
is closed today, so I was hoping someone would know.
Ford Credit has the lien. Only Ford Credit can release the
lien, thereby releasing the title for transfer, after the note
is paid off with cleared funds.
Call Ford Credit during business hours Monday and ask what
you must do to obtain a clear title as quickly as possible.
There is often a lien payoff involved in the sale of a car.
A reasonable buyer will understand the paperwork involved
and will cooperate with patience. If the buyer pressures
you to deliver the car before completing the financial work,
be suspicious. If you decide to go ahead, be sure to get
100% CASH in advance and have a written agreement for
the transaction defining your rights and responsibilities.
