My question involves an auto loan or repossession in the State of: CA
Can a spouse sell the car belonging to her deceased husband, even though only his name was on the loan? The registration is also only in his name. There was no will. If she could sell it for more than is owed on the loan, it would obviously be to her advantage if it can be done legally -- or is her only option to have it repossessed? If it is repossessed, would this reflect negatively on her credit report somehow, even though she is not on the loan?
