Probably, some companies only require that you have care custody and control of the vehicle in order to be the named insured. Other companies require that you be the registered owner. The problem that arises is that the finance company usually wants to have the evidence of insurance be in the name of the person responsible for the loan. If you are the named insured but not the name on the loan then the loan company may require that the person on the loan also be on the insurance policy as a named insured. The best way to do this is to have the person that owns the car get the insurance and list you the driver as the principle operator.

Can you get homeowners insurance on someone elses property?

You must have an insurable interest to effect valid coverage. Property must be insured in the name of the owner. So if you want to buy someone else a policy for their property you can certainly pay the bill for some else's property insurance but you can not insure it in your own name. If you insured someone else's home in any name other than the legal property owner and it burned down or suffered some other loss, the Insurance company can not legally pay your claim simply because the property does not belong to you. They would also not have to pay the owner because he or she was not an insured on the policy. The proper way to insure it would be under the name of the legal owner, If you also have an insurable interest in the property, then your name can be added as a co-insured. Should a claim arise, the claim check would be issued under both names.

If you finance a car for someone can they insure it in their own name?

Yes of course, they are required to insure it in their name if they are buying the vehicle by financed note. The buyer is the new owner of the vehicle. All drivers are required to maintain financial Responsibility when operating a vehicle on public roads. The financiers interest is typically covered also by requiring the buyer list them as a lienholder on the policy. This requirement is generally built into the finance agreement There are also separate business insurance product lines that will cover a lienholders interest in a financed vehicle. The financier trying to insure the vehicle on a standard personal auto policy is an attempt to circumvent the insurance laws and constitutes insurance fraud by failing to disclose the true nature of the the risk to the insurer. Under finance law, the buyer is the legal owner of the vehicle even theough the note is not paid off with certain encumbrances denoted in the finance agreement. The financier is a lienholder in due course until such time as the finance note has been satisfied.
