How do I get car insurance when I have taken over someone’s car loan?

How do I get car insurance when I have taken over someone's car loan?Since the car is still in their name. You need to buy a policy that insures both you and the possessor.

The buyers contract requires that they maintain insurance for the life of the loan, so failure to provide a policy in the name of that holder constitutes a breach of contract subjecting the vehicle to repossession.
You need to make sure you have a written contract buying the
vehicle and that the finance company or bank has switched the name
on the contract or I would not recommend taking over a car payment.
The reason is that the vehicle is not yours in any way or style.

It belongs to the other person even if you are making the payments
it still belongs to them. For this reason, you cannot insure a
vehicle you do not own. The insurance company cannot pay you if the
car is totaled and they cannot pay the other person because they
don’t have an insurance contract with the company. Sometimes the
company will make an exception if you have a contract with the

Does an auto insurance policy have to be in the same name as the car loan?

Lien Holders Insurance Indemnity Clause Yes, Your finance contract (Loan) almost always requires that theborrower provide a Total Coverage Auto Insurance Policy on thevehicle being financed to protect the lien holders interest in theproperty until the loan has been pleased. It’s a matter of yourfinance contract. Failure of the borrower to provide the coveragerequired under the terms of the finance agreement puts the borrowerin “Default” on the finance note subjecting the vehicle torepossession and other remedies at the lenders disposition. Include All Drivers For Total Coverage, The Insurance policy should be decently in thename of the vehicle holder with any extra drivers listed asadditional insureds on the policy. When the vehicle is still undera finance note. The finance company will generally require that thebuyer maintain total coverage auto insurance until the note is paid.As this is part of the finance agreement signed by the buyer,failure to do so can subject the vehicle to repossession by thefinance company. Operators Liability For liability only, any driver may obtain a liability policy foroperation of the vehicle whether they are the possessor or not, Sincethe Driver as well as the vehicle proprietor can both be held equallyliable for any loss regardless of who is driving, most insurerswill require you address the insured status of the possessor as well. Owners Liability The proprietor “Name on Title” is just as liable for an accident in thevehicle as the driver is, even tho’ the holder may not have beendriving when the accident occurred. If someone was kind enough tosign for you to buy a car, the least you can do is make sure youdon’t expose them to a lawsuit over a future accident you may havein the car. This is why many states have begun requiring the ownerto have sufficient coverage regardless of whether the owneractially drives the car.

Can your daughter provide insurance for a car if the loan and the registration are in your name?

There are so many potential scripts in this situation. Are you wishing to insure it via the daughter because she has a better record, thus better rates? That would, of course, be considered fraud, and is not advised. Additionally, they are going to rate the policy based on all drivers in the house, so the rates may not improve anyway. Does the daughter live in the same residence? Most other family members would also be covered, IN MOST CASES WITH MOST COMPANIES, but most also require a DMV check on each driver in the house. The company can also list a specific ‘named driver exclusion’. I.E. Seventeen year old Johnny has already received three violations; carrier will proceed coverage but require a named exclusion for Johnny. They will cover NO accidents or incidents in which Johnny is the driver. If she is NOT in the house, is not a regular driver of the insured vehicle, and has no legal relationship to the vehicle financially, but is better able to meet the financial obligation of the premiums, then you should simply have her give the monies to you each month.

What do you do if the insurance for a totaled car does not pay off the car loan?

I faced the same thing about a year ago. The insurance company did not want to give me what was needed. I got on-line and found many cars that were just like mine and demonstrated them that my car was worth more than they were wanting to give me. They still did not want to give me what the car was worth. So I went to petite claims court and filed suit on the driver of the other car. The person’s insurance has to represent them. Also go and look at the comps that the insurance company are using for your car to see if you can substitute the car for what they want to give you. ResponseUltimately it is your responsibility that you either made low payments, took out a very long loan, or picked a car with high depreciation. The insurance company is not liable for the inflated amount you owe–only what the car is worth. ReactionThe insurance company will only give you the value of the vehicle, as per the “Kelly Blue Book”. They will also send an appraiser out to see what the condition of the car was, as in mileage, any previous harm. If the accident was another driver’s fault, you have to sue him and/or his insurance company for the remaining balance.Whatever you borrowed to obtain the vehicle wil always be more than the car is worth. You have already lost money on it as soon as you drove it off the car lot. But do your research. Go online for “Kelly Blue Book”, and get the estimate of the car’s value. If it is more, then dispute it with the insurance company. Print the page out. ResponseWhen you bought the car fresh or used from the dealer you had the option to purchase something called GAP INSURANCE from them (the Dealer, not the insurance company) for your exact situation. If you did not have enough equity in your car for the insurance pay off to cover it AND did not have gap insurance. basically you are screwed and responsible for the rest of the loan amount car or no car. Some people believe Gap insurance is a rip off so they do not suggest it to you and some just don’t know what it is. They do not need to be selling cars. Not fair but the way of life. Father is an insurance sales man. I also had a lady hit me I had GAP insurance and she did not. She still had to pay off the balance on the loan even tho’ she did not have the car. The courts won’t do much because you had the option to purchase gap insurance and you did not, it does not matter that you did not know.

The loan on the original car was secured by the title of the vehicle.

If the proprietor is “upside-down” in the vehicle he/she will be required to pay off the remainder of the note at that time or make arrangements to pay it off. No, the loan cannot be applied to another vehicle. A fresh loan must be negotiated.

Your auto loan experienced will explain these factors, and tell you exactly what your interest rate will be. .

Response .
You will most likely get a ticket for no insurance, not a cheap one if you are in a compulsory insurance state. Most states have compulsory insurance laws that require you to insure your car paid for or not. The idea is to compensate the other driver if you are at fault in an accident, its also a good idea for you since if your car is totaled you will get nothing. I think you can get away with only liability coverage, it will take care of the drivers medical in an accident.

Can you be taken to jail for a car loan being overdue?

No. A car loan is a civil as opposed to a criminal matter. Being behind on a debt is not a criminal matter, therefore you cannot be arrested for it. Never the less, if you are behind on a car loan and if the loan is secured by a lien on the car, you may be arrested if you interfere with the loan company’s attempts to repossess the car, provided that state you are in has laws that make it a crime to interfere with a repossession. But even in this example, you are not subject to arrest for being behind on the loan, you are subject to arrest for interfering with the repossession.

What can happen if you hit someone’s car and you don’t have car insurance?

At fault accident with no insuranceIf you were at fault, you can be held liable for all the costs of damages and injuries associated with the accident you caused. If you had purchased insurance, the financial liabilities would have been transferred to your insurer via your insuring contract. If the other party had only liability coverage, Since you have no insurance, the individual will have to pursue you directly for their loss. As you state that you are uninsured their is no insurance company for them to pursue the claim so they would have to sue you directly if they so choose. If the other party had Utter coverage and was paid by their insurance company, then the right of recovery passes to that insurer who can also pursue you for the costs they incurred in covering the damages from the accident you caused. If you live in one of the Legal U.S. states that have no fault insurance statutes, the other persons insurance will cover a portion of their injuries under very first party injury coverage but No Fault does not apply to property harm so they will still have to pursue you directly for property harm reimbursement. If you live in one of the 38 U.S. states that operate under traditional tort then no fault has no bearing on your financial obligations. Most states do have a “Very first Party” Medical coverage requirement usually referred to as PIP (Individual Injury Protection) for injuries regardless of fault on an auto insurance policy that many laymen confuse with no fault. It is simply an assurance of minimum very first party individual injury coverage for a motorist and should not be confused with no fault. Since No U.S. State has a true no fault auto insurance. The National Insurance Council has recommended several years ago that usage of the term be discontinued to avoid confusion among the general public. ReactionMost injuries will fall under the issues of “No Fault” laws in your state if you live in one the Legitimate No Fault States. Very first and foremost, failure by you to carry auto insurance is a criminal matter in the US. See the laws specific to your state for the penalty that can be incurred for failing to insure your vehicle. Just because you hit another vehicle is not proof that you are at fault. AboutNo FaultInsuranceNo fault insurance laws are similar in every state that has them. Eighteen states have no “No Fault” laws. There are enough differences in those states where No Fault laws exist to make it impractical to give a comprehensive reaction. By and large, you are protected to some degree by the insurance coverage you have. Your contract with your insurance carrier is inbetween you and they. The No Fault laws simply make it difficult or unlikely for you to seek compensation/restitution from the other party’s insurer. It is the place ofyourinsurer to seek damages from the other party’s insurance carrier. Now in the case of an uninsured motorist (UM) or under-insured motorist (UIM), each state regulates what can be done. Much of this falls under private loss, private injury, and liability law. The one matter that is the same in all states is the question of fault. “No Fault” is an insurance matter. The assignment of fault in an accident is a matter of who did what. For example: if you hit another car where the other driver failed to yield the right of way, that driver is at fault. If however you fail to yield, say while coming in the highway (merging from an entrance ramp), and your vehicle clips another, youare at fault. The at fault driver is liable. The courts of each state must determine the dollar amount for that liability. In many states, physical liability is limited (the amount paid out for specific injuries), but the amounts paid out for mental and/or emotional suffering, and punitive damages can be largely unlimited. You must recover your damages from your insurance provider, who in turn may sue the other party’s provider to recover their damages, OR you must sue under Loss, Injury, and Liability laws. If you fail to sue, and you are uninsured, you get nothing. If you are uninsured and get sued, you are liable for the judgment of the court and subject to the collection laws of your state and the federal government. In states like Louisiana and other areas in the south and southwest, recovery from parties unwilling to pay makes civil suit a waste of time. (See the specific collection laws of your state AND the FFDCPA–Federal Fair Debt collections Practices Act). The brief response here then is that you as the uninsured driver can be sued. If you are at fault, the “civil” liability is yours under the jurisdiction of the state courts. In the event of criminal liability or criminal negligence (such as DWI/DUI type situations), the state or federal government will step in and your civil responsibility will be of little or at least secondary consequence. In addition to this, most states have some sort of civil or criminal penalty for those who are uninsured or who do not or cannot provide proof of insurance. For example, in the state of Michigan, failure to provide proof of insurance at a traffic stopcanresult in a civil infraction (the issuance of a ticket), at the discretion of the law enforcement officer. This ticket is similar to a “Repair and Report” type ticket. You will be required to display proof of insurance to the court within, typically, thirty days. That proof need not be retroactive to the date of the infraction. You could purchase insurance the day of your court appearance and sate the court. Failure to display proof to the court CAN result in a misdemeanor charge, with a sentence of thirty days to one year in jail, and/or up to a $500 fine. It is not automatic however, and is up to the discretion of the presiding judge. However, if you are incapable to showcase proof of insurance, AND you have seven (7) or more points on your license, you may be entered into the Driver Responsibility Program (Driver Responsibility Law MCL 257.732a), and you will be required to pay a fee of $200 per year for at least two years. Failure to pay the fee can result in the suspension of your license. As stated previously, every state is different; however, the similarities inbetween them may be covered in the Michigan example.

The very first thing that they will do is to put coerced place coverage on the vehicle. This is a very expensive type of insurance that only protects the banks interest and only pays the bank.

This insurance only provides physical harm coverage and will not pay for harm to your property or anyone Else’s. It does not provide liability and does not meet the state requirement to permit it to be driven on the street. The 2nd thing they will do is to repossess the vehicle because you have violated the contract that you signed with the lender to keep the required coverage on the vehicle. Oh yes, and the cost of impounding and storing the vehicle after it has been repossessed will also be charged to your account.
