Yes, However, at the time of the sale if you do not sell it for atleast the amount owed, you must pay the difference(ASAP). I don't know what state your in, but in Texas you must present the title to the buyer within 21 days.

So here is an example of what can happen when a creditor repossess an item. "If an item such as a car or furniture is repossessed, the creditor can then sell it.

The terms of your contract might even add charges for the costs of repossession and sale."

How can you sell a car with no title and get money for it?

If you are the legal owner of a car, have it register, and have simply lost the title, you can apply for a replacement through your state DMV. If you are the legal owner of a car but do not have a title for it, you can sell the car with a bill of sale and the next owner can attempt to a quire a title for it. You will have difficulty selling the car for anything like it's actual value. If you are still paying for the car, and as such haven't gotten the title yet, you can not sell the car as you do not own it, the bank does. Selling a car you are still paying for is fraud as you are selling something that doesn't belong to you. If you do not own the car, but are trying to sell it this is also fraud as you are selling somethign that doesn't belong to you. if u own the car straight out & just trying 2 sell it - all u have to do is go to the department of lic. with the BUYER & sign a "release of interest" form, it has to be notorized so both u & the buyer have to sign it with a notary present - its easy !!!

I wouldn't think so. If the car was totaled, then the insurance company gives you the money and tows the car. Basically, they purchased it. If you were given money to fix the car, and the the car they give you the money to fix is no longer around, then why would you get money to fix a car that's not yours anymore? Medical should still be covered though.

== == Regardless of your employment situation, you still OWE for the car after it is repoed. The lender can sell it, to get some money out of it, BUT if the sale brings less money that YOU owe, they can still go after the balance that YOU owe, by attaching a court order for some of YOUR wages until the debt is PAID OFF. The reason I used capital letters above is to underline that it is YOU who have to take responsibility for YOUR actions, such as signing for a car loan.
