    FAQ
      Vehicles
    Can I claim ownership of an abandoned vehicle left on my property?
     
    Answer:

    The law does not allow an individual or a business to claim ownership of a vehicle abandoned on their property. The vehicle must be removed and processed according to the state's abandoned vehicle law. You may have the opportunity to bid on the vehicle if it is offered at public auction.
