Each insurance company has it’s own
An owned by endorsement is something that you can add to an insurance policy to allow you to insure the vehicle if it’s not titled in your name. Typically you need to have insurable interest in something in order to insure it. Insurable Interest is when you would have a financial loss if something happens to whatever it is that your insuring like a car or home. The owned by endorsement actually adds the titled owner of the vehicle to your insurance policy. They are listed as the owner of the vehicle and therefore would be the ones who receive any payout on any claims if there were any. Since your not the owner you wouldn’t be out anything if the vehicle were to be involved in an accident and totaled out. But the owner of the vehicle would be since they own the vehicle.
When you add an owned by endorsement to your policy they will run the owner’s information as well. They have to be able to qualify for insurance too. rules so it’s good to check around and ask if it’s allowed or not. Here it was allowed in some cases. It was allowed with an “Owned By Endorsement”.
Thanks again ask your agent i f they allow "owned by"endorsement.
It can be done this way of the insurance company does ' owned by" endorsement.It the insurance agent that may be the stickler, legally it is possible.See if the agent and the insurer will allow this.
Yes you would and you would want to run this by the agent.
Contact the agent to make sure this is allowed by your insurance agent, then once insured you can get it registered in your name.It will be the insurance that may give you a hard time, hopefully they allow " owned by endorsement."
Thats correct, thanks again and the best to you.
Yes thats correct.
