Can homes brought to auction have liens still on them?

Can a home that is brought to auction by the owner or even a bank have a title lien still against it?

How/ where could I check to make sure things are smooth before attempting to bid on this potential deal?

@Lauren Simmers   They would know who title is going to be and sometimes they have done a prelim on the property.  It should list if title insurance is eligible or not and the kind of deed.  Worth talking to them for sure.
