    Hi ! I am a title clerk at a NYS dealership , We had a New Jersey resident purchase a vehicle from us and was financed through GM Financial. GM is contacting us because they are saying the lien was not place on the vehicle title. I have tried several times to contact the buyer but have gotten no response back. As in our dealer agreement with GM Financial, it is our responsibility to make sure the lien is placed. Can you advise me on how I might go about doing this ? Any help with this matter is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
