Abandoned Vehicles

Abandoned vehicles are cars and boats and other motor vehicles left on another’s property for a period of time as defined by local statutes, which vary by locality. Such laws are enacted because abandoned vehicles can cause fire hazards and contribute to urban blight. Laws governing abandoned vehicles may provide for notice to the last recorded owner and any recorded lienholders before disposing of the vehicle or selling it at auction.
