Unlikely. Most lenders will not loan against a "salvage" or "rebuilt" vehicle. The only time I've seen this done is when the loan is less than 50% of the "salvage" value of the car. For example, if the car in normal condition was worth $20,000, the salvage value would be about $10,000. A lender may be willing to loan $5,000 in this situation.

AnswerYou need to review the term of your divorce agreement.

Otherwise, even if they have conveyed their interest, the ex-spouse remains responsible for paying the mortgage.

If banks had less money to loan they would increase their interest rates. This is because they would have to make the most profit off of the little money that they had to use.

What does a lower interest rate mean for savers?

It means that they are getting less money for deferring expenditure and saving instead. However, it is not the low nominal interest rates which matter but what the "real" interest rates are. This is the difference between the nominal interest rate and the rate of inflation. An interest rate of 2% when inflation is 0% is good news for savers but an inflation rate even as high as 10% is bad news if inflation is higher than 10%.

Do you pay off lower interest debt first or higher ones?

You should pay off the higher interest debt first plainly because they will cost you more money if you payed of the lower interest debt first. Another thing to take into account is how large the debt is because if that is the case then you should pay off the larger debt. :) It would make sense to pay of the higher interest debts before the lower ones. That could save you a lot of money. A credit card loan of 20.000 mounts up to roughly 50.000 in less than five years if not payed down on. This is mainly due to a very high interest rate. often 21-24%, sometimes even more. If being able to convert it to a low interest loan in a bank, say of 4%, then it would only mount up to 25.000 in the same time. It makes sense to me to rather have to pay 25.000 than 50.000 regards.
