If the title to a car is in your name but the name for the car loan is in someone elses name who has legal ownership?

If only your name is on the title and the loan is not listed as a lien on that title then you are the legal owner. If someone else obtained a car loan for you then their name should be on the title to the car with yours. The question of ownership should be addressed if someone was kind enough to borrow money for you to have a car. The car should have full insurance coverage in case of an accident.

Do you have to have a current auto registration to file a claim?

One has nothing to do with the other unless the insurance carrier is asking for the registration to show that the vehicle belongs to you.

The registration is used because most vehicles are financed so the bank or finance company would have possession of the of the actual title since they are the leinholder.

Can you get car insurance if your name is not on the registration?

By saying that your name is not on the registration, I assume that it also is not on the title. If you or your spouse do not own the vehicle you cannot insure it. It doesn't matter how you ask the question. You must have interest in the vehicle to insure it.

Does Florida law require title insurance to transfer a property title?

No, Florida law does not require that title insurance be issued. The only requirement to transferring title, is that a proper deed be recorded. However, having said that, if you are buying a property from someone, title insurance is greatly recommended. Title Insurance is the only thing that protects you in the event you receive a fraudulent title, or you later find out that there are undisclosed liens or encumbrances against the title. I would never buy any property without the protection of a title insurance policy. If, on the other hand, your parents are transferring to you their property, and you already know the history of the title, title insurance would not be needed.

Can you change a title with someone elses name on it?
