Answer

You can either sell it or give it away. Secondly, if you are a co-owner of the car, just go down to the DMV and have them remove you as owner and let the other person carry the title in their name. Hope this helps.

both of our names are on the car title i just only want my name on the car title i payed it off i want the title only in my name

If the car is paid off and you have the Certificate of Title, your father must sign the certificate over to you then you take it to the DMV and apply for a new certificate in your own name.

For your ex to get the title to a car in his name, you would have had to sign the title as well. If this has already happened, you can try to persuade him to take his name off the title, but outside of this it would take a court to award the ownership of the car to you.

If the car was awarded to you in the divorce then you should present the order and the title to the DMV.

Definitely. Whoever possesses title owns car. Just take it in to dmv after owner signs off on it to register in your name.

Registration of a vehicle should be listed in the name of the person who owns the vehicle, not the one who pays for it. If you have purchased a car from someone, you should transfer the title to your name. You can then take the title to the county tag office and register it in your name. If you do not transfer the title, the car remains the legal property of the prior owner.

Only the lender can take a party off a loan. Generally, a loan must be paid off and refinanced to convert it to one person's name. If both parties are on the certificate of title, one party must voluntarily give up their title to the car by signing the title over to the other party.

im just guessing - but you will probably have to take the death certificate to registrations and take that person off the title before you sell it.

The only way to be relieved from cosigning obligations is for the primary borrower to refinance the vehicle. And no, if the person's name is not on the car title they have no ownership rights.

He would have to sign off on the back of the title as the "Seller" and you would sign as the "Buyer." After that, take it to your local tag office to apply for a new title.

You cannot add a name to a title that is not paid off yet without renegotiating the contract. You can transfer a title after it is paid off.

Since it was awarded to you, he needs to sign the title. You can take the title in as well as the paperwork from the divorce which proves you get the car to the county auditor's office (or the place where you get a registration) and get a new title ordered plus a registration.

Your name is probably not on the car title in the first place. When you are paying off a car loan, the title is in the name of the lender. Once the final payment has been made, then the lien is removed, a title is issued in your name and you own it outright. Of course, if you put your cleared title car up as collateral and have failed to make good on a debt, then it can be repossessed. State law will give you time to buy the car back and pay penalties. Once your time is up, then the car is sold and the new owner takes possession with his name now on the title.

When you pay off a car the Title should be issued directly to you. Unless the bank sent it to The DMV to get their name off of it. Then it will go to you.

If the car is paid off. You and the co-owner can go to DMV and register the car in one name.

User Avatar

The lien must be paid off and the title must then be signed over to you. You cannot insure and register the car in your name without a title.

User Avatar

Most likely you would have to officially take over the loan.

User Avatar

No. The co-owner would need to sign the title over to you.

User Avatar

Yes. When you finance a car, that's exactly what happens... the financier is the title holder until that vehicle is paid off.

User Avatar

If the car has a lien, you usually have to pay off the lien before you can get a clear title. Otherwise, in this state you have the name of the lien holder on the title.

I believe whoever has the title or if the title is still in your name, then yes you may take the car back. You may want to ask for sheriff back-up if there are any problems. Or just key the ignition and take-off, if you can. Some state laws may differ.

As long as you have the title that he signed off of it and you signed on and you have insurance on the vehicle it will be covered.

User Avatar

Yes, but you might have trouble getting a repossession company to take the account. If you know where the car is, you might be better off just picking it up yourself. Get some keys made, or perhaps you have a spare key? You will not be arrested for taking your own car back (if your name is on the title).
