How to know if a car has loads

On a car can weigh loads from many sources, for example, because there are pending fines without paying, because it has not yet finished paying completely, because it is purchased by leasing or because it has been seized by a court. When buying a used vehicle, it is very important to make sure it is clean in this regard. In .com we explain how to know if a car has loads.

Steps to follow:


The first thing you should do is go to the Directorate General of Traffic near your home and request a report on the car. You will have to pay a fee of just over 8 euros to get the data, once you give the registration.


They will inform you of the most relevant movements of the car, among them if you have pending a fine or if you weigh a seal on the car. This procedure can also be done through the website of the General Directorate of Traffic, provided that there is an electronic certificate and the possibility of paying online.


A report must also be requested in the Register of Movable Property. The data that you must provide is the registration number of the vehicle.


Thus, you will be able to know if there is an embargo on the car, if there is a reservation of ownership of a financial institution because the car has been sold in installments and has not yet paid, if there is a lease on the vehicle, etc.

  • It is highly recommended that before buying a car from a private individual you get a Traffic report and the Register of Personal Property, to avoid unpleasant surprises.
