Before purchasing a used vehicle, it is very important to verify that it has been paid for in full. Otherwise, you could "purchase" its owner’s debt.
To conduct this verification, you must make a search using the Registre des droits personnels et réels mobiliers (RDPRM). There are fees for this search. It will, however, ensure that you will not pay for the vehicle twice or have it seized by a creditor.
