i have a person who sold me a car under bankrupcty, and i need the title . gow can i tell if its still under or not?

I think of two ways. Call the DMV and have them do a search using the VIN number or call the court for a copy of the papers filed for bankruptcy. There should be a copy of the title of the car in the paperwork.

The bank should not have your car title if it is paid off. If you declared bankruptcy and it was discharged, your bank credit card account should be dismissed.

No, only unsecured debt is discharged.

You can keep your car.Bankrupts rarely lose their cars because they've gone bankrupt. Of course this is conditional and only bankruptcy advisors knows if yours is safe. Contact an attorney or bankruptcy advisor. They should be able to help.

It really depends on the type of bankruptcy petition you file. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy the creditor who put the lien on your car may be able to take your vehicle. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy you'll have the opportunity to make payment arrangements with your creditor and in that case you should get the title back after all of your payments are made and your amended. contract with the creditor has been fulfilled.

If there is a loan for the vehicle it must be paid off before the lender will release the title. The bankruptcy exemption status does not confer ownership of the vehicle to the BK petitioner unless the vehicle was already owned free and clear. It simply indicates that the car was not subject to BK procedure.

Normally, as a secured creditor he would get to repossess and sell the car to recover as much of what you owed. Or if you reaffirmed the debt, then the lien stays as does your obligation to pay.

Can you file bankruptcy if you caused a car accident?

If you wreck your car after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy you can file it on your insurance. You can then replace your car based on the bankruptcy order.

If there was a secured loan and you reaffirmed the debt in your chapter 7 and you have paid off the loan, you should get the title from the lender. If you surrendered the car to the lender in your chapter 7, your balance was discharged as an unsecured loan and you have not owned the car since you surrendered it.

You financed the car through the credit union, huh? I can't think of any other reason why they would have the title. They will probably repossess the car. They want to sell the car to get back some of the money you owe.

You are normally allowed to keep the house you are living in and one car in a bankruptcy.

If you lost the title through foreclosure or abandonment in the bankruptcy, probably not, but it depends on a number of factors. Consult a lawyer in your area.

Your lien holder wants to be paid before releasing the car. You should consult with the attorney who is representing you in your bankruptcy. You cannot transfer title because you don't have clear title to transfer.

If you filed for bankruptcy and the title company knows about it, then you cannot sell your house. Your title is not free and clear so a buyer could not purchase. It also depends on the bankruptcy, you should talk to your lawyer.

Do you mean like "Bankruptcy Attorney"? Well it is a title of sorts. So yes. I am Max Rosenberg, the Bankruptcy Attorney.

if the consigner files bankruptcy can the borrower take the car

No - having had a car that was re-possessed will not affect the filing of a Bankruptcy.

Yes, you can buy a car and have it financed before bankruptcy is discharged.

yes you have to have a title for a car
