I recently took a car loan for my son because his credit is bad. The loan is in my name, the title is in his name only. He is listed on the loan as the 'holder of colateral'.

Can you use a car as a trade in for your new car if the trade in is titled to your daughter and has an out standing loan signed by another person and your daughter agrees to the trade in?

your daughter would have to sign the release documents for her car. As for the loan, whoever signed the loan would still have to pay the loan, regardless. The loan doesn't go away. If you do consider this, make sure there aren't any liens or any other claims to that car, through the bank or other institution.

The primary buyer on your car died and you were cosigner. Can the estate make you take her name off the car loan and do you have to give car back or can you keep it?

If grandmother was the sole signatory on the car loan, and there are payments still remaining at the time of her death, then the Estate will be required to satisfy the loan amount. Regardless of who is awarded the car, the loan must still be paid off in order to gain total ownership of the vehicle. The loan company holds the "Title" in their vaults until the loan is paid off.To remove her name off the loan, you might have to refinance the loan, which may result in a higher interest rate. At any rate, the loan company needs to be apprised of the death immediately, and they may be able to help you through the processes required to re-align the loan into your name.Another perspective: You haven't disclosed the name on the certificate of title for the car. Generally, if the car is in your name (you said it was your car) and you keep making the loan payments, you shouldn't encounter any problems. The estate representative cannot make you take anyone's name off the loan because you don't have that power but they can notify the bank that the cosigner has died. If the car is titled in the other person's name then you have a problem.You have not included enough detail to get a definitive response. You should consult with an attorney.

The "someone else" needs to apply for a loan to pay off your car loan. With your loan paid off, you can sign the title over showing it free & clear. Don't sign off on the title until you know the loan is paid--or you could find that you no longer own the car but still have a loan to pay.
