Are you legally obligated if you turn a used car over to the buyer before the title is in his banks name?

Yes !! Until the new buyer re-registers the vehicle into his/her name, YOU are legally liable for any damages to people or property as long as your name is on the title. Best to hand carry the title with both seller and buyer to the motor vehicle office and get this done before handing over the keys.

A non-binding contract is considered to be an informal contract. It means both the buyer and the seller are not legally obligated to go through with the bid.

No, because technically and legally that would be perceived as cattle rustling, especially if the buyer "forgets" to close the sale and make the payment after taking your cattle. The money must be paid in full before the buyer can legally remove the cattle from your land. If he/she cannot make the sale, the cattle must stay. No ifs, ands or buts!

No, the refinancing without the consent or knowledge of the original cosigner created a breach of the original lending agreement and the cosigner is no longer legally obligated for the debt.
