Can I still use the collateral if I have a lien on it?
Curious about Collateral
If your collateral has a lien on it, it means that someone else has a legal claim on the asset until a debt is repaid. In such a case, you may not be able to use the asset as collateral for a loan as the lender would want a clear title to the collateral. However, you should check with the lender as some loans may allow you to use an asset with a lien as collateral. It is important to understand the terms of the loan and any legal claims on the collateral before using it as collateral.
