What happens to a cosigner of a car loan when the primary loan holder files bankruptcy and the loan is discharged and they do a voluntary repossession?

How can I get out of a cosigning loan that is still active?

Chances are you will not be able to remove yourself from responsibility for any loan you cosign until the loan is paid in full. Remember, the borrower needed you to cosign because he didn't have credit, or had bad credit and was not considered by the lender to be a suitable risk. By cosigning, you are actually taking full responsibility for repaying the loan. There are a few situations where a lender may agree to remove you as cosigner if records indicate that payments have been made on time for a period of

Is the buyer still responsible for buying a vehicle if the cosigner refuses to sign?

Who has control of company vehicles with a cosigner?

Control in what sense? Sell them, transfer title? The cosigner guarantee's the loan on the vehicles and would need to agree to selling them and sign the title. You can use them for any purpose, do anything with them including burning them. You will still be responsible for the loan and if not you the cosigner will have to pay the loan off.

What can a 70-year-old cosigner on a car loan be held responsible for if the loan is found in default?

The cosigner has the same legal obligations to repay the debt as does the primary borrower. If the primary borrower defaults, the lender can begin proceedings to collect the full amount owed plus applicable fees from the cosigner. A cosigner can be sued just as can the primary borrower. And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.

If the title has the primary borrower's name first and then the cosigner's name can the cosigner just take the car and make the primary borrower still pay on it but not own it anymore?

What decides the ownership of real property such as a vehicle is the way the title is worded. If the names on the title of the vehicle are separated by the word "and" each party owns an equal share of the vehicle and both have to agree on any action taken. If the names are separated by the word "or" both parties have sole ownership rights and either one can take action without the permission of the other. Nevertheless, one party cannot have the use of the vehicle while the other one pays the financial obligation unless it pertains to a married couple or the involved parties have agreed on such an arrangement. Unfortunately situations such as cited quite often end up in litigation.

How do you remove a cosigner from a credit card?

The way that can be accomplished is determined by the terms of the lending agreement. Very few, if any lending institutions would allow an account to be amended. The usual procedure is for the account to be closed leaving the original cosigner still responsible to the debt incurred up to the time of closure. The primary holder can then open another account on there own or with another cosigner.

If the borrower cannot make the payments but the cosigner does can the mortgage company still take the house?

Not if the cosigner has been making the payments on time. But often the cosigner doesn't know the loan is in default until it is past due 30 days or more, so if you have received two or three (depends on state laws) Right To Cure Default letters, the bank can foreclose.
