When a vehicle is left abandoned on your property, you have a few options of how you can take care of the situation and get the vehicle off of your property as soon as possible. You have the option to leave the vehicle there and wait for someone to pick it up, call a company to tow it off your land, or you can put an abandoned vehicle lien on it.
Why Put a Lien on an Abandoned Vehicle?
There are many reasons why you might consider putting a lien on an abandoned vehicle. You might want to sell the car to pay off a debt that the car’s owner owed to you, or you might want to sell it for parts. If the car is old and not worth selling, you may choose to use some of the parts to restore another vehicle, or if the vehicle is in good condition, you might want to keep the car and drive it. It’s important to keep in mind that you can only do something with an abandoned vehicle on your property once it is legally yours.
When to Apply for an Abandoned Vehicle Lien
Abandoned vehicles are able to be claimed by a private property owner if the car has been illegally parked or otherwise left for a period of 30 days or more. You may want to consider putting a lien on an abandoned vehicle on your property if the vehicle:
- Has been on your private property for more than 30 days
- Is attracting unwanted attention
- Has become an eyesore
- Is getting in the way of your business or normal activity
As a private property owner, you have the right to dictate what is allowed on your property within the limits of the law, and at MVD Express, we can help you apply for and secure a lien for an abandoned vehicle left on your property.
The process for putting a lien on an abandoned vehicle can be complicated and involves many steps. For example, once you put a lien on the vehicle, you are required to post it for sale before you can claim it as your own. Additionally, there are certain rules and guidelines that you must follow every step of the way, making the process stressful if you don’t know what to expect.
