The insurance company would not be interested in repossessing a car that has been completely demolished. The insurance company will pay over any damages to the loan company since it has a lien on the car. You would receive any amount remaining after payment of the car loan. On the other hand, you will be responsible for any remaining balance owed on the car loan. That is why "gap insurance" is important for a financed car. Gap insurance pays when the amount of compensation received from a total loss does not fully cover the amount the insured owes on the vehicle's financing.

Typically you need a car with insurance to get a title loan. If your car is totaled, the loan company are entitled to that money since they hold the title for your car.

Yes, if your insurance company will not pay it all.

If they gave you 16000 on the car, you would not need gap insurance since your loan amount is 12400.

Of course not! It wasn't stolen or wrecked, it was taken from you for failure to pay on the loan!Be sure to cancel the insurance.

It depends. if you have GAP insurance, the insurance company will pay the payoff amount. If you do not have GAP insurance, it is the holder of loan's responsibility to pay off the complete open loan regardless of the amount paid by the insurance company.

If a car with an outstanding lien gets "totaled" in an accident the insurance company will pay the finance company. Any amount left on the loan after the insurance payment must be paid by the owner of the car. Gap insurance purchased at the time of the loan will pay any deficiency.On the other hand, any amount left over after the loan has been paid will go to the car owner.If a car with an outstanding lien gets "totaled" in an accident the insurance company will pay the finance company.

If you were not at fault in the accident, you can sue the insurance company for the balance on your loan. If you accepted the payment from the insurance company and signed a waiver from future litigation, you cannot do anything but pay the debt yourself.

NO. You no longer have collateral to secure the loan. Unless you are willing to use real estate or another vehicle that is fully paid off and owned for security.

I've never heard of an insurance policy that covers repossession. Remember, the car doesn't actually belong to you -- it was repossessed because you failed to honor the contract of repayment of the loan to buy it.

That's about it. The car is totaled. The money is still owed. If there was a loan, you'd better have insurance and if you are lucky, the insurance will cover MOST of what you still owe.AnswerYour insurance co. is obligated by law to satisfy any payment up to the policy's limits. If there are money owed after that, you can sue the other driver for the money owed or be sued, whatever applies.

Your car finance company will add their own insurance that covers their vehicle, but not your liability. ANd it will significantly increase your payments. It would be so much cheaper and better protection for you to find your own insurance. Park it until you get insurance.

What is Illinois gap car insurance? Is insurance you can purchase to cover the gap between the cost of repaying your car loan and the amount the insurance company will actually give you for your totaled car.

An automotive loan usually contains a clause that says the loan recipient must maintain insurance on the car for the life of the loan. Usually, this includes not only the legal minimal liability insurance, but also theft, collision and fire insurance. If you are in breach of the loan agreement, your car may be subject to repossession, depending upon the terms of your loan agreement.

You have had several things happen:You bought a car and as is the law requires told the insurance company who was financing it, and probably you have total loss or "gap" coverageThen you got into a crash that totaled the carThe insurance company knows you have to clear your car loan, and because of the coverage type, your bank has to get the moneySo you have to take it to your loan officer and get them to use the funds to clear your car loanYou will have to sign the check and the bank will take it and apply to your loan.

you still owe on the motorcycle. that's why banks require full coverage at the time of the loan-so that they will get their money. Since there is no insurance company, YOU are responsible for paying off the loan.

Loan company gets paid first if you owe more then the insurancwe pays you owe the balance, if insurance pays more then loan you get the differance.

Yes. The insurance policy is a contract. All it requires the insurance company to do is to pay the fair market value of the vehicle. You would need to get what is called gap insurance to pay the difference between the market value and the loan value.

Not unless you have the new option in insurance of the new car replacement. If your car is totaled, you will be paid the Blue Book price for your vehicle. This sum is the amount your vehicle is worth at this time. Any amount over this sum that is still owed to a car loan is still due.

IF the loan is perfected, it can be repossessed. If you have signed a loan contract with the vehicle specified as collateral for that loan, it can be reepossessed if the loan is in default.

No. Absolutely not. Your driver's license cannot be suspended for not paying a loan or the balance of a loan, repossessed or not even if you get threats from the loan company.

That insurance will probably cover the BANKS interest in the vehicle and any liability that may be assigned to it, but little or nothing for you.

In California it is normally necessary for you to currently have comprehensive and collision coverage in place at the time of the accident for your gap insurance to take effect.

YOU pay off the loan like you agreed to in the contract. You likely agreed to have ins. that covered theft also. You should have had full coverage on a car with a loan on it. Sorry, you have to pay the loan off and now you own a totaled car! Comprehensive coverage isn't that expensive and would have covered theft.
