Yes, you can sell an impounded vehicle, Unless the car has a hold on it in connection with a crime, in which case there would be no storage fees. Mind you, the buyer is liable for any tickets that go to the plate that was on the car at the time of impound.

Can you sell a car while it is impounded and have the new owner get it?

Technically, yes, as long as the new owner is aware of this fact and agrees to it. It could potentially make reclaiming it from impound more difficult, though, so the new owner might insist that you accompany him/her.

If your car is impounded what is the law regarding notification before they can sell your car at a lien sale auction?

For any car that is impounded (not available for release without a police OK) or stored (available for release to the registered owner without a police OK), a written or verbal notice must be given to the party from whom it was taken. If no verbal notice of the vehicle was given to the person who had custody of the vehicle at the time of impound/storage - a notice must be mailed(15-20 days) to the last registered owner and legal owner (loan holder). If the storage fees and any back DMV fees (if any) are not paid within generally 30 days, the tow company may sell the car for lien fees. Notice of the impending sale is to be sent to the registered and legal owners prior to the transfer of title due to the lien sale.

Son 21 registered owner got car impounded VC 14602.6. I am the lien holder am I responsible for the fees and charges Impound yard would like me to be. Sheriff says No same code i. What's true?

It just depends what the impound yard wants to do, if they can't re-sale the vehicle they will probably come after R.O. or the L.O. If the car is driveable and in good condition they will probably sell it and won't even charge the Registered owner.

You cannot afford to retrieve your impounded motorcycle can you sell it to a third party?

It depends on what country you live in. In the USA, if you cannot afford to retrieve your motorcycle, whoever impounded your motorcycle owns it. They can sell it, but you no longer own it, so trying to sell it is illegal.

Can you sell a car with personalised registration?

In most US states now, the license plate is registered to the driver. When selling the vehicle, the registered owner removes the plate(s) which forces the new owner to actually register the vehicle. This is not necessarily the case in other parts of the world. Check with your local registration department.
