You would need the consent of the lender, who would assign the loan to the fiancee and consent to the reissue of the title in their name.

Otherwise, if the lender refuses, the loan will need to be released. The fiancee will need to get their own loan and you would use the proceeds to pay off the current loan and assign them the title.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
