Loads from many sources can weigh on a car, for example, because there are pending unpaid fines, because it has not yet been fully paid, because it was purchased through leasing or because it has been repossessed by a court. When buying a second-hand vehicle, it is very important to make sure that it is clean in this sense.
Steps to follow:
The first thing you should do is go to the Headquarters of the General Directorate of Traffic closest to your home and request a report on the car. You will have to pay a fee of just over 8 euros for them to provide you with the data, once you have registered.
They will inform you of the most relevant movements of the car, including if there is a fine pending payment or if there is a seal on the car. This procedure can also be done through the website of the General Directorate of Traffic, provided that you have an electronic certificate and the possibility of paying online.
A report must also be requested in the Personal Property Registry. The information you must provide is the vehicle registration number.
Thus, you will be able to know if there is a lien on the car, if there is a reservation of title from a financial institution because the car has been sold in installments and has not yet been paid, if there is a lease on the vehicle, etc.
