I took out a personal loan for someone. They bought an RV with it and made all the payments but there's still a balance on the loan in my name. Do I have to turn over the keys and title to the RV before the loan is paid off?
Your question is a little confusing; you say that the buyer "made all the payments but there's still a balance on the loan in my name." I can't understand how "all the payments" were made, but a balance remains?
If the loan has been satisfied, then you should be given a satisfaction, and to the extent there is a lien on the vehicle that lien should be removed. If the loan has not been satisfied, then transfering the keys and title to a third party wouldn't affect your balance to the lender (unless, of course, you're transferring the title to the lender itself in order to satisfy the remaining debt.)
Calling an attorney to discuss this over the phone could possibly clear this up in a few minutes. I'd suggest reaching out to see if there are issue that can be resolved personally, or if counsel is actually necessary.
