Insurance Question from Sarasota, FL

Car insurance should be written in the state where the car is garaged. If your daughter is living permanently in Pa you should purchase a policy in Pa.If the car is leased in your name, then the policy should be in your name, but you should list your daughter, and her husband if he drives the car, as operators.You may want to consider retitling the car to your daughter and her husband. If the car remains in your name, it is your liability being exposed in the event of a major accident. Since you do not live in the same state, you have little to no control over who drives the car. You would need to work any title change out with the leasing company, but they may be willing to allow the change if you continue to make the lease payments. If your daughter and her husband own another car they may receive discounts for having multiple cars, plus if they own a home a multi line discount. Have them talk to their insurance agent about these discounts.
