CARFAX Canada uses the VIN to search government records in each Canadian province and territory (excluding Northwest Territories) where the vehicle is currently registered and where it has historically been registered. We do not check for liens or titles in any U.S. state.

If a VIN has no registration records in Canada, we cannot check for liens. We cannot guarantee lien checks on trailers, recreational vehicles or heavy-duty equipment.

Purchasers should always get written confirmation from vendors that there is no lien on the vehicle.
