Form VTR-265-M. Mechanic's Lien Foreclosure - Texas

The Form VTR-265-M is used in Texas for the foreclosure of a mechanic's lien. This form is necessary when a mechanic or repair shop seeks to take possession of and sell a motor vehicle to satisfy outstanding charges for repairs or services rendered.

The form consists of sections that require accurate completion, including details about the vehicle, the lienholder, and any additional required documentation or information.

When filling out the Form VTR-265-M, it is important to:

  • Provide accurate information about the vehicle, including the make, model, year, and identification number.
  • Include details about the lienholder, such as the name, address, and contact information of the mechanic or repair shop.
  • Attach any required supporting documentation, such as evidence of the mechanic's lien, notification attempts to the vehicle owner, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

This form is necessary for mechanics or repair shops to initiate the foreclosure process on a vehicle when the owner has failed to pay for repairs or services. It allows the lienholder to legally take possession of the vehicle and sell it to recover the outstanding charges.

An alternative form may be the Application for Repossession Affidavit, which is used when a vehicle is repossessed due to non-payment. The Form VTR-265-M, however, specifically focuses on the foreclosure of a mechanic's lien against a vehicle for unpaid repair or service charges.
