A lien is the right to take hold or sell property of a debtor as security or payment for the debt. iTHINK Financial requires Members who offer collateral to secure a loan, such as a car loan or personal expense loan, to record iTHINK Financial as the first lien holder on the collateral. This means that if the Member defaults on the loan, iTHINK Financial can take the collateral and sell it to pay off the loan. 


When applying for a collateral loan, Members must supply the vehicle identification number (VIN) when using an automobile or motorcycle collateral on a loan or a hull number or serial number when using a boat or other collateral. iTHINK Financial requires this number at the time of application unless the loan is a pre-approval.
