[DML] Re: Cars at IRS Auction

I will defer to your superior knowledge on the subject but I would
still caution anyone buying a car at a sale like this to at least
consider the possablility of other incuberances on the title. The IRS
cannot issue titles. Only the States can. Although the IRS is legally
obligated to notify others with an interest in the property they may
not or they may just not research it properly enough to find all of
the other parties with an interest. As always "Buyer Beware". Besides,
if the State issues a title based on this auction it will say in some
form of language that the issuance of the title is no guarantee that
there are no security interests in the vehicle. This applies to ANY
car titled after an auction. The best form of protection is a title
search and knowing the chain-of-ownership. Not too long ago there was
a big scandal in New York on Long Island. There was a Sheriff's sale
of impounded cars. Many had loans or liens. When the new owners tried
to title and register the cars the banks came foward and repossesed
the cars. Everyone cried foul and the Sheriff's office had to reverse
the sales and turn the cars over to the banks. Cars are a unique item
in that they are titled like Real Estate. Transactions are recorded
and are public record. I only mention this to warn of the
possabilities in buying cars at an auction.
