If you don't have a "contract", you aren't a leinholder. A lienholder must have a contract and have filed the notice with the county recorders office and the title must state you as the leinholder.

If the person is named on a title as a lien holder he or she has the legal option of repossessing the vehicle as it is determined by the laws of the state where the vehicle is registered.

Can you have a co-signer removed from a title after the car is repossessed?

AnswerIf the primary on the contract does not pay then the lienholder comes after the co-signer for the payment. The credit of both the primary and co-signer are going to show repossession. If the lender has kept the title in its files as part of the loan process and is listed as a primary lienholder, it can sell the vehicle after the repossession.

How do you contract to sell a car for which you are being paid for over time?

Basically, you are financing the vehicle, right? Put a lien on it. All you have to do is fill out a bill of sale and there will be a place for you to list a lienholder. Fill in your information there. There will also be a place for you to put lienholder information on the title, so make sure you fill that part in also. When the buyer takes that to the highway dept to register it, the hwy dept will keep that and give them a registration. After about 2-3 weeks, you should receive the title in the mail with you listed as the lienholder. After you are paid in full by the buyer, then you will sign off as lienholder and give them the title.

What if vehicle owner allows insurance policy to cancel and purchases new policy without lien holder listed?

When you purchase a vehicle and fiancé it you sign a contract stating that you will carry certain insurance coverages and provide the finance company with the proper notification of such coverage. If you let your policy cancel you have violated the contract. If you do not list them as lienholder on your insurance policy you have also violated the contract. If you do not fix this situation when you finance company send you letters about this they have the right to repossess your vehicle and screw your credit up for life. You have obligations and the finance company has obligations under these contracts. If you have period of time when you cannot prove you have insurance then they will put forced place coverage on your vehicle to protect themselves and will charge the premiums to your account.

Can your ex-boyfriend who is a cosigner repossess your car?

If you have renigged on paying your portion of the car bill, yes.It doesn't matter who he is. The fact is...he cosigned for you. But, you can contact your consumer affairs bureau and see if they have a brochure on vehicle repossession. Ps Your ex bf sounds tons nicer than any of mine. He can't "repossess" because he is not the lienholder. If he is listed on the title as a co-owner, he has the same right of possession that you have and could insist on "taking his turn". But if he is only a co-signer on the loan, the only "right" he has is to make the payments if you don't. If he has had to make some of the payments for you, he could sue you for reimbursement.

Car not paid for but i have car title?

You have the title, but I bet on that title the lender you own money to is listed as the lien holder. He can repossess the car at any time if you miss payments.
