M., please do not think that the bank is crazy. Why did you pay payments to THAT bank on a loan that that car is collateral for? That's called a perfected lein. That is how you will owe the BALANCE DUE plus repo fees,plus attorney fees, plus auction fees, ect. Sooo, take the car on down to the bank, get this mess over with. You are adding money you owe by playing around with the title deal. You didnt invent this game and your not the first to play. The odds are much worse than a casino that you might win. Good Luck

My car is collateral for a loan can i sell if i hold the title?

The bank should be listed as a lienholder on the title. If you sold it, the bank would have to be paid the amount you owe them from the proceeds. Otherwise, you could be inviting possible criminal and civil charges for selling an item that technically wasn't fully yours, not to mention, whoever you sell the car to may not be able to even get a title due to the existing lien.

Do you get the title to your car if you have a loan on it?

No. You don't get the title to your car until any loans against it are paid in full. <><><> In several states, you will get a title document- but it will show the loan company or bank as a lienholder. That title cannot be transferred to someone else until the lien is satisfied (loan paid off)

Can a lienholder repossess a car if you have a clean title but still owe them money?

It will depend on the lienholder. Most Credit Unions have a Cross Collateralization clause in their in-house contracts. This means that the vehicle you purchase will also be used as collateral for any and all other loans you may have with them now or in the future. SIMPLE INTEREST CONTRACTS FROM DEALERS DO NOT HAVE THIS CLAUSE. Make sure to read your contract carefully if you are getting a bank draft directly from a bank or credit union. If the lienholder does not pick up the car and there is still money owed, they can hold the title indefinetely or until a settlement is made.

If a mortgagor who is not on the title or deed is in default can the bank foreclose on the property?

If the mortgagor owned the property when they granted a mortgage to the bank then the bank has an interest even if the mortgagor conveyed their interest by a quitclaim deed. In that case the grantee would take title subject to the mortgage. If the mortgage isn't paid the bank can take possession of the property.
