Buying a car from someone who still owes on it...
Just a general question... and if its been discussed before I couldnt find it in a search, so sorry if this is a repost!

Eventually, hopefully sooner than later, I'll be buying a celica from someone... since it seems 9 out of 10 the people still owe on them, how does the whole title part work? What risks do you take in buying a car they still owe on? I'd jsut be worried about buying it, they don't bother to pay it off and don't bother to keep paying on the loan and next thing the car is being looked for for repossesion. Especially since Im thinking about buying an out of state car and having it shipped to me, it's not like i'd be there to make sure it was all good. WHats the standard protocol?

i think what ever the asking price is of the car...say $10,000...then if he still oahs the company $2,000...you still pay the $10,000...so he has to use some of the profit to pay off the rest of the car...so in the end the will $8,000 rather than $10,000 thumbsup

a little tricky...but i would just get one that is already payed off if it were me thumbsup

exactly, if you can just buy one from somebody who's already paid it off... then these issues won't matter

if the car isnt payed off he cant sell it because the bank still has a hold on the car they own it as much as him you have to meet at the bank pay off the balance plus what ever extra he wants if theres a lot owed you can just take over the payments and give him nothing DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY BEFORE THE TITLE IS IN YOUR HANDS youll regret it thumbsup
