You should check with your insurance agent how you should carry the insurance on a car not financed in your name. Each of the 50 states in the United States has its own insurance regulations. Each state requires its agents to know the insurance regulations.

Yes, you can usually but it back because it is then between you and the insurance company. But keep in mind your insurance company normally pays the ACV (Actual Cash Value) which may not be what you actually owe on the vehicle unless you carry Gap insurance. Gap Insurance is an additional coverage that covers the balance of the loan between the ACV and remaining Balance.

PMI is a type of mortgage insurance that insures the bank for repayment of the home mortgage. Banks generally make you pay for PMI insurance if you are within 80% of the appraised value of the home financed. For example if you have a home that is appraised at $200,000 and the balance on the mortgage is $160,000 or more then the bank will require you to carry PMI insurance. PMI insurance only covers the bank but the homeowner is the one who has to pay the premium.

Not Exactly. You Will Have To Carry Life Insurance, Probably Some Type Of Other Insurance, Plus Taxes, Filing Fees, Ect. Check Into It With You Dealer And Bank. Good Luck If you mean financed for the loan balance, that would depend upon whether or not the borrower qualifies for the loan amount, based on credit rating, income, etc. The buyer will be required to pay out of pocket, sales tax, licensing fees (registration, titling, etc.) and carry full insurance coverage until the vehicle is paid for, those are costs that are not included in the purchasing contract
