Anyone know somfin about liens & insurance law?
My RAV4 will officially be paid off on Friday, but I likely won't get the lien release until the 28th. I want to get a new Ford Fiesta next week, drop the RAV4 to liability only, and have the Fiesta full coverage. With the RAV4 no longer having a lien against it I know I can do that, but can I do that before I actually have the lien release in hand?

Maybe, I ran into this and my agent was able to get the bank to fax over a letter saying the vehicle was paid in full and full coverage was not necessary. So I guess it depends on insurance agent and the bank or loan company.

Thanks Chuck, kinda figured it'd be something like that. On pretty good terms with my insurance co., never cost 'em a penny, and given 'em $10's of thousands in premiums over the years...hopefully they, and Toyota financial, who I should be on very good terms with as well, having never been anywhere near late on a payment to, through 2 purchases, will play nice nice next week. If not, a week or 2 of full coverage on both won't break the bank.
