Can who make you sell it? If he filed bankruptcy and his name is on the title, you will need to go to court and show documentation that you are the only one that made the payments. Also, you will want to get his name off the title ASAP. * It is not relevant as to who makes the payments on the loan. The wording of the title determines ownership of a vehicle. If the title is jointly owned with the names separated by the word "or" the vehicle is considered owned separately by each named party and can be subject to a judgment creditor or bankruptcy action. If the names are separated by the word "and" the vehicle is jointly owned and in most instances cannot be partitioned. If it is a matter of bankruptcy, the vehicle exemption may or may not protect it from being seized by the trustee. If it concerns a repossession or attachment by another creditor and the person named on the title is the judgment debtor, the exemption also applies with the exception of the lender themselves.

If a vehicle is wrecked then totaled and it has a lost title will this affect the insurance claim?

Totaled vehicles which have been rebuilt generally have a "salvaged vehicle" title, or whatever it's called in your state. Vehicles with a salvaged vehicle title are by definition, not as valuable as the same vehicle with a clean title. If the vehicle is subsequently in another collision, the insurance company will not pay as much since the loss was not as great. Insurance companies only need to pay you for the actual value of the vehicle.

If a car is titled in someone's name can that car be put on there parents insurance?

As far as I know, at least where I live, it makes no difference who's name is on the title. If you are authorized to drive the vehicle, it can be insured on anyone's policy. The only thing that is required is that the vehicle has insurance, period. I know that in my personal life, I am driving a truck that is in my brother's name, and I am making payments to my mother for it because she accquired the truck from my brother via an even trade for a different truck. I carry insurance on the truck in my name and on my own policy. I don't plan on changing the title over until I have it paid off.

Does a co-owner of a vehicle who has never driven the vehicle have accident liability if his only reason for being on title was to get the vehicle financed?

You bet. If the other owner of the vehicle doesn't carry insurance on the vehicle -- or lets it lapse -- and has an at-fault accident, the injured party can certainly come after you as a part owner of the vehicle. If the other owner carries insurance, however, you're pretty safe. The insurance carrier handling the vehicle and any accidents will protect the owners' interests to the limits of the policy. If you know the vehicle has insurance, and you're still worried, take a moment to review the policy coverages and limits on the vehicle. Just so you know, the insurance you carry on the vehicle you do drive would not extend to a co-owned vehicle like this, unless you've told your carrier about it.

Depeding on how the vehicle is titled you may have legal rights to the vehicle even if you aren't making the payments. However, in order to just get it titled in your name then you will need their consent if it's currently titled in both of your names. Very simple answer to all these questions.

You are selling your motorcycle to a guy making payments How do you release yourself of liability with out signing over the title?

Check with the Secretary of State in your area to confirm you can be the lien holder for the vehicle. Assuming you can, simply sell the vehicle to the buyer, and list yourself as the lien holder on the title. It would be a good idea to utilize a contract to outline payments and if you require the buyer to maintain insurance on the bike until the lien is satisfied. Hope this helps.

How do you place a lien on a vehicle If you are willing to finance a used vehicle to someone how do you protect yourself?

On the back of the title there is a place for you to put the leinholder information. Just put your information there when you pay the money to the seller. If there is a leinholder, the insurance company will require the owner to carry full coverage insurance, therefore, if the car is wrecked, the insurance will pay you, the leinholder, and not the owner listed on the title. That way you will be able to recoup any money that is owed to you. You can only keep the amount that is owed to you and pay any remaining to the registered owner of the vehicle.
