The Emerson first national bank is lending you money to buy a new car the loan agreement will probably state that you must carry what insurance?

A company making a loan to purchase a car needs to ensure that its interest in the car will be protected because the car is collateral for the loan. Therefore, it needs to ensure that if the car is damaged, a source of money exists to restore the car to its condition as of the time of the loan. Collision and comprehensive insurance do that by protecting against the diminuition in value of the car because of the damage. For these reasons, the lender will require proof that these coverages are maintained. If they are not, the lender will buy these coverages to protect its own interest. Typically, the cost of such "single interest" coverage is charged back to the loan account. It is usually more costly than if the customer maintained comprehensive and collision coverage as they were supposed to.

Since the car is financed, it already is collateral for a loan. Your car loan uses the car as collateral for that loan.
