If you make payments on a vehicle, boat, motorhome, even a railway car, the company you make your payment to may register a lien against your property. When you finish paying for the item, the lien is removed.

With this in mind, when you are buying a vehicle you should check to see if there are any liens against it. You don’t want to find that you have become liable for an unpaid debt on the car you are buying. This information is not confidential and is available to the public. We will search the Alberta Municipal Affairs personal property database for liens and registered encumbrances on a wide variety of items including motor vehicles. Search criteria include vehicle identification numbers, serial numbers, lien registration numbers, persons and companies.
