yes, to some degree. Any car with a salvage title, (in my opinion as a Broker) should NOT be on the road! Sorry to be so blunt.

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.

Salvaged title finance in california. Is it law in California that a car having a salvaged title can not be financed through a banking or credit union Stuck in a rut?

There is no law against financing Salvaged Titles. It is just that most banks and credit unioins chose not to finance these vehicles. The problem is that there can be liability if the vehicle is for whatever reason unsafe, and you sometimes do not know why a vehicle was salvaged. It could be because of frame damage or other serious damage, or it could be for water damage (i.e., Katrina), or it could be that it was just stripped by a theif, and has been rebuilt and is perfectly good, but since it was totaled by the insurance company, it is "salvaged". Some lenders will lend against a salvaged title. But they will take off 40% of the value of the vehicle due to salvaged title. So if the vehicle is worth $10,000 as a regular title, a salvaged vehicle will be worth about $6,000. I believe SafeCo might be a source for insurance. Car Cash Loans in Los Angeles ( will lend against salvaged titles, according to their representatives.

Can you put full coverage insurance on a car with a salvage title car in Minnesota?

On every auto application, there is a question will ask: "Does the vehicle have a salvaged or branded title?" If this is the case, you will not be able to put full coverage, (comprehensive and collision coverage) on the vehicle. Sometime you can get special exceptions from your insurance carrier to get the full coverage put on if all damage was repaired. It is much harder to get full coverage on a salvaged title vehicle.

What is title insurance and do you need it when refinancing your home?

Title insurance is usually required by the lender to protect the lender against loss resulting from claims by others against your new home. In some states, attorneys offer title insurance as part of their services in examining title and providing a title opinion. The attorney's fee may include the title insurance premium. In other states, a title insurance company or title agent directly provides the title insurance. A Lender's Title Insurance policy is usually required when you are refinancing. If you have an Owner's Title policy already (you probably received it with your recorded deed) and can provide the title agent with a copy of it, you can very often get a reissue credit that will greatly reduce the amount of money this lenders title insurance policy will cost you. To save money on title insurance, compare rates among various title insurance companies. Ask what services and limitations on coverage are provided under each policy. In many states, title insurance premium rates are established by the state and may not be negotiable. Even if the premium rates are not negotiable, many of the title-related fees can vary from company to company and should be compared as well.
