Before making an appointment to close the loan we need to receive:

If buying from a dealer:
-A Purchase Order From a Dealer
It Must Contain: Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), The Make, Model, and Year of the Vehicle. The Bottom Line Price and the name of the dealer so we can make the check out properly.

 OR If buying from a private individual:
-A Letter of Intent to Sell
This functions as a Purchase order it must contain the amount the individual is selling the vehicle for, a list of options, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), The Make, Model, and Year of the Vehicle and the signature of the seller
- Copy of Vehicle Registration or Vehicle Title

Note:  The balance in a Share Account cannot go below one monthly loan payment, inclusive of one month’s interest plus the $50 minimum share balance.  This is intended to provide that the loan does not become delinquent due to share withdrawals.  If the loan does become delinquent, the credit union will set-off the loan with an immediate transfer from the borrower’s and/or co-signers’ shares, share certificates, holiday club or other accounts.
