If you have a loan on a car do you have to have insurance?

If you have a loan on a car do you have to have insurance?Yes

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 sated. 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 proprietor or not, Sincethe Driver as well as the vehicle possessor can both be held equallyliable for any loss regardless of who is driving, most insurerswill require you address the insured status of the proprietor as well. Owners Liability The possessor “Name on Title” is just as liable for an accident in thevehicle as the driver is, even however the possessor 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.

Is it possible to have your name on your parents insurance policy if the car loan and the registration are in your name?

Response .
This is not a good idea. You need your own insurance policy. There are coverages you do not have by being on your parents policy. You want to be a “named insured”. This means that you control the policy and not your parents. If you want to loan your car to anyone you can, if you are on your parents policy you cannot do this. Also if you need to rent a car, you are not covered under your parents policy to do this. You would be under your own policy. Contact your insurance agent for a better explanation..

If you are making loan payments on a car but never drive it do you still need insurance?

If your lender requires you to have insurance during the loan period, then yes. Also. If you are driving , then yes. If the vehicle is not on the road being driven, then no. But, know that if you just drive the vehicle to your next door neighbor’s house and you have an accident (collision), then you better have insurance or you could wind up having to pay a large fine and/or have your lincese suspended and/or have your prospects for a future car insurance company require you to pay alot more for car insurance.

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

There are so many potential screenplays 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 showcased 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. ResponseThe 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 woman 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.

Who is responsible for the loan if a person has died and when the car was purchased finance insurance was not suggested?

As far as I know, in Texas, the son is not responsible for the debts of the father. In other words, no one HAS to pay it off. But, the seller has the right to repossess the car. But, they can’t make relatives or anyone pay for it. !

What happens to a loan on a car when the loan holder dies and there is no cosigner or insurance on the loan?

No. Find out what car dealers don’t want you to know at www.dealertricks.comThe reaction to this question is YES.

If this happens, it is a very difficult, if not unlikely condition to correct.

If you loan your car to a step-child who does not live with you will the insurance company cover in case of an accident?

If your car is stolen can the loan still proceed and a fresh car be bought with the insurance money?

The loan on the original car was secured by the title of the vehicle. When it was stolen, your insurance company should have paid the value of the vehicle very first to the lender then any remaining money should go to the holder. If the holder 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.

Response .
Park it until you get insurance.

Can you get insurance on a car that has been loaned to you by a friend who is out of the country for 6-8 months?

Reaction .
I would call my agent on that one. Very first, you realize in the event that you are pulled over you are producing a registration under someone elses name. Secondly, if you are not the proprietor, you have no financial interest in the car and could not possibly collect from the insurance carrier for damages to that car. You may be able to get some sort of “non-owned auto liability” policy. Call your agent!

If a friend wants to buy your car but doesn’t have the credit to get a loan and you keep the car loan and insurance and they pay you the car payment and insurance who is liable if there is an accident?

The person with the insurance. Never permit someone who isn’t on the policy to drive the car..
The person who has their name on the title is primarily responsible, so since there is a loan on the car in your name, the title must still be in your name. If your friend crashes the car YOU will be responsible for HIS injuries as well as any harm and injuries to others. If you do not have his name on the policy as the primary driver and the insurance company finds out he was buying the car from you and driving it on a regular basis, they may reject the claim AND prosecute you for insurance fraud. .

What should you do if you co-signed a car loan for someone and they are driving with a suspended license and no insurance?

Reaction .
One should NEVER co-sign for anyone because you become responsible for paying that debt back. You only gave them the money so what they do on their spare time has nothing to do with you co-signing a loan. However, if you were clever I’d report this person. You won’t be popular for it, but this person is irresponsible and you could be saving someone’s life (including this persons.).

If your mom co-signed a car loan for you and you signed the loan too can you get car insurance for the car in your name only?

Yes, you can purchase your own car insurance. However, you must add your mother (the co-signor) as an extra insurance but non-operator. There is no extra premium for her. She is added on so she is protected an extra registered possessor.

How do you get another car loan or will you have to wait until the loan is closed if you have a loan on a car that was totaled and insurance and GAP insurance will pay the total loan balance?

Yes surely you can get another. I was having the same query so I searched for it on net and came across the site AutoFinance-EZ. Interest rates are determined by the actual lenders and are influenced by several factors, including the severity of credit problems, the amount of down payment, and the degree of credit risk. Your auto loan pro will explain these factors, and tell you exactly what your interest rate will be. .

What should you do if a co-signer on a car loan totaled car with no insurance now you are paying the loan?

You should sue the co-signer. Even however you may be the primary person obligated to pay the loan, he is responsible to you for totalling your car.

Getting him to reimburse you will be your problem.

If you are a co-signer on a car loan for your son do you have to be listed on the insurance policy?

Cosigning .

Most likely not. The purpose of a co-signer is when someone has “insufficient credit” to finance a vehicle someone else has to be on the application so in the case the main buyer messes up, the person cosigning will also be held responsible. In terms of insurance, as long as he has his own license and his name is on the registration, he can have his own insurance policy.

When a applying for a auto loan and there are Two people on the loan does the primary name on the loan have to have insurance if they do not drive the car and have no license?

I’ve been in this exact situation before, there may be a problem and the car people may have to figure the paperwork because you can’t sell a car to someone without a license, but the people at the dealership did it for me and my mom years back so I’m sure they can find out how to do it if they wanna sell that car, but she is going to have to have her name on that insurance policy no matter what, which could bring the cost of insurance up to the point you may not even want the car. That being said it shouldn’t be unlikely to get a nice cheap insurance policy, all in all, you should be able to get the car, we did it a few years back so you should make out ok!

Car was wrecked no insurance still owe on loan does bank make you pay for fixing car on top of loan?

I am not a lawyer but any car loan I have ever signed, the following are true. The car is the collateral for the loan. The loan company a.ka.,the bank, is the holder of the car and holder of the title not you. I also make the promise that I will maintain what we call collision (accident loss) and comprehensive (theft, vandalism, weather etc. loss) which protects the bank from loss by insuring the vehicle is paid for in the event of a loss. The State mandates I carry my liability coverage. So I gather in some parts of the country this would be called total coverage. The other significant issue is because the car is in fact wielded by the loan company they are listed on the insurance document as the 1rst loss payee. So if in fact you are insured the loan company will be paid very first. You promised to pay the loan company x dollars when you signed the note. Nothing will relieve from paying that amound plus accrued interest. If the settlement is not enough to cover the outstanding loan balance then you owe the remainder. If you cancelled your insurance or let it lapse for non-payment then you are already in default on the loan just has if you had missed payments. Per the terms you signed the loan company can request instant payment for the entire outstanding balance on the loan and embark whatever processes it needs to collect that money including its legal fees to collect the money. All of this will affect your future insurance rates and your credit score. In most but not all states things like credit rating, insurance spectacle (cancellations, non payment, length of continuous insurance etc) will affect any insurance premium or loan interest in the future. You need to be upfront with everyone, take your financial hits and stir on. It will only get worse, You see a lot of this issue. The lesson here is don’t by more care than you can afford and insurance payments are every bit as significant as your car payment. They are not an option. Never buy a car that puts you under water. That is you owe more than the car is worth. Generally this means putting down some kind of reasonable downpayment (my individual guideline is at least 30% of the purchase price of then vehicle) , never finance a fresh car for more than Four years or used car for more than Trio years unless it’s a vehicle that holds value enormously well like a fresh Mercedes. If you the find the payments plus the insurance are exceeding your budget, time to sell it and buy something with in your budget before trouble hits. Just because someone offers you a car loan with a 1000 down and finance the rest, doesn’t mean you should take it. In fact you should run. This fellow cares more about his commission than your financial well being. Unlike buying a house which is usually an appreciating asset, a car is a depreciating asset or expense.

Is it legal for the insurance company not to pay the loan company on a totaled car?

Your brother is loaning you his car if you insure the car can he be held liable for an accident you get into?

Furthermore, if you by chance, reside with your brother, you should be included in his policy. If your brother’s coverage is liability only, but your’s is higher, the higher coverage may apply, however, Two policies on one vehicle may be applied in case there are excessive damages and/or individual injuries.

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.

Ordinarily, the lender will require, as part of the terms of the loan, that the vehicle be kept insured for physical harm, so as to protect the value of the collateral.

The loan documents will generally provide that in the event insurance is not maintained, the lender can secure physical harm coverage on the vehicle to protect its own interest.

Can your insurance company takie loan car without paying you out all the money?

What an insurance company pays for a total loss vehicle has nothing to do with the amount owed on the car. Auto insurance is based on the actual cash value of the vehicle while the amount owed on the loan has nothing to do with the ACV of the vehicle. If a vehicle is totalled and you owe $5000 and the ACV is $8000 the company will issue a check for $5000 to the finance company and a check to the policyholder for $3000. If the numbers are in switch sides the insurance company pays the ACV of $5000 and you still owe $3000 to the finance company. It happens when you pay to much for the car, build up interest and fees, add other amount to the loan like if you were upside down in the last loan and they add the balance to this one. Anyone purchasing or leasing a fresh vehicle should ask their agent about GAP insurance. Because a fresh vehicle depreciates so prompt at very first you need this coverage. The dealer finance department will sell it to you for a chunk of dollars and your insurance company will sell it to you for a duo of dollars a month. The difference is amazing. GAP pays the difference in what the ACV is and what is owed on the vehicle.
