If the car you're looking to buy still has money owed on it, you should find out how much. If it's less than the sale price, you can meet the seller at his lender's office and do the sales transaction there. The lender will provide a receipt showing that a clean title will be sent to you. If the money owed is more than the sale price, the seller will have to add cash to pay off the lien and you don't want to get involved with this if he cant pay off the car.
