Exclamation help!

Buying a new Ranger =) the guy I'm buying it off of had a lien on it because he got it financed through his credit union. He says he paid it off and I can just take the lien to the dmv and have the title mailed to me. Is this legit? Need some advice. I've only bought cars with titles. Is there some sort of official document that I should look for that says the car was truck was paid off? I live in CA. Thanks!!

go to the CU that the loan is through and ask them if the truck is indeed paid off and go from there

The owner will not have the title, it will be the credit union that is in possession of the vehicle title. However, if he had truly paid the vehicle off, then the title should be mailed to him. Now if your state has switched over to electronic titles, then the credit union should have already sent info to the DMV stating that so and so has paid off the truck and is now the rightful owner.
