Do the best you can to get what you owe for the sale price. If you can't get that much for it, you will have to pay the difference on the loan. Once the loan is paid off, you will get the title in the mail. Sign it over to the buyer and give them the keys. In the mean time, once the deal is made and money is handed over, have a "bill of sale" ready for them with both signatures (keep a copy). You can download an auto bill of sale form in the related links below that's compliant with your state's laws.

If you are talking about getting the title so you can sell it yourself without trading to a dealer for a lower sale price, then go to the bank and get a signature loan, or even a cash advance place if you don't owe a lot on your vehicle. Use the cash from the loan to pay off your vehicle. You have replaced your first loan with a second loan, but now you have the title to sell your vehicle yourself.

If you sell a car you owe a creditor a balance on, you pay the creditor the amount you owe him in order to get the title to the vehicle to turn over to your buyer. Anything over the balance owed to the creditor is yours to keep, assuming you sold it for more than you owed on it. If you sold it for less than you owe on it you will have to pay the additional amount out of your pocket to get the title.

This is tricky. If you trade in your car and get what you owe on it, it is likely you are paying more for your new vehicle (they always mark up the price to equal everything out). If they only give you what the vehicle is worth by blue book value, then they will give you a better deal on the new vehicle. If you want the best deal, then sell the car person-to-person and then buy yourself a new vehicle.

We purchased a new vehicle in Jan 2010 We are military and just got overseas orders and can't take it with us We wanted to know what our options are can we sell it back to the dealer?

Yes you could sell it back to the dealer but you will only receive the wholesale value. Better to sell it to an individual. You could also put it in storage for when you return. The dealer may be sympathetic to your plight and offer more. Remember if he buys it from you he must sell it at a profit. Allot of this depends on how much you owe on the vehicle. If you owe less than it is worth just sell it to an individual. If you owe more then you have a problem. See if you can let someone take over the payments. Just make sure it is all done legally with the proper paperwork.

Who holds the collateral in a loan with collateral?

Normally, unless it is a sort of pawnshop or personal type of loan, you the borrower hold the collateral. For example, if you get a loan on a vehicle, you have possession of the vehicle as long as you are making payments as agreed. If you stop making the payments, the one to whom you owe the money (the lien holder) can take possession of the vehicle, sell it, and you would be responsible to pay the difference between what it is sold for and the amount you still owe, if there is a difference.
