Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

They can remove a vehicle on a foreclosed property as abandoned. In order for them to take ownership of the vehicle, they would need to go to court to file to have the title changed to them for it being abandoned property. They do not need to have the title, they would file a petition in court and would need to show the vehicle was abandoned and they notified the owner to remove it and they failed to do so.
