    Can you insure a car not registered to you ?

    Jurisdiction / State: Pennsylvania

    A car is leased and insured in one individual's name. Then a boyfriend wants to start paying the lease, use the vehicle and insure it - ? That's the first concern - if the boyfriend decides to take off - you face the fact he may stop paying on the lease and would then let the insurance lapse. Will a lease company allow a transfer - or what the heck are the consequences? (I'm guessing not good)

    Don't ever fall victim to the "I'll pay for XXXXXXXX", just sign it over to me.

    Or, "If you finance is in YOUR name, I'll make the payments."

    If I were you, I'd say NO, and dump that loser!!!!!!!!!!!

    I suggest you investigate lease transfer provisions that will allow him to assume the lease and leave you not liable for it.
