Best Answer

insurance for some one else's vehicle, yes another person can insure someone's else property, so long as you have an INsurable interest or authorization to do so and the owner is benefited, In other words, The owner also has to be a listed insured on the policy.

If you give the permission to another person. obviously they will have an insurable interest, however, only the legal owner of the property can receive compensation in the event of a covered loss

you can not insure the property of another when no insurable interest exists

Can someone else insure your car even if they do not live at the same address?

You cannot insure something you do not own and the address has nothing to do with it. The insured on the insurance policy must also be the owner of the vehicle. An insurance application and policy make up a legal contract. The contract states that you must own the vehicle insured. Lets use your example where someone else insures your vehicle. If the vehicle is damage in an accident, the insurance company cannot pay damages to the person listed on the insurance policy because they don't own the car. The also cannot pay you because you don't have a contract with them for insurance.
