Yes, the cosigner/co-borrower has the same legal responsibility to repay the debt/loan as does the primary borrower. If the primary defaults the creditor can attempt to collect from the co-borrower before the primary borrower.

If you are a cosigner on a vehicle loan and your name is listed on the title as OR then what rights do you have when the primary buyer defaults on payments?

You have the right to pay the loan. When a cosigner enters into a loan agreement he is promising to assume responsibility for the debt should the borrower ever default on the loan. This means simply that if the borrower stops making payments the cosigner will have to take over the payments. You may even be responsible for the full payment of the loan in the event that the borrower dies or is disabled. The cosigner, or in many times, the co-borrower is equally responsible for the debt. The debt will be reflected on the co-signors credit report and may negatively impact the person's credit should the debt become delinquent. If the primary borrower cannot pay the debt, the lender will pursue the co-signor just as equally as the primary borrower. In some cases the lender may only go after the cosigner. If you cosign on a auto loan and the borrower does not make his payments, you will be responsible for making the payments even though you do not have posession of the vehicle. The borrower will be driving around in a vehicle that you are paying for, and it can be a nightmare to extract yourself from this situation. You will not only be responsible for any arrears of the loan; you will also be responsible for any late fees, additional interest, and collection fees.


Is the cosigner the only one responsible on the loan?

The primary borrower is responsible for making the payments and adhering to the terms of the lending contract. The cosigner is legally obligated only if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement or files bankruptcy (chapter 7).


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.


What if the primary borrower files bankruptcy is the cosigner still responsible for making payments on the vehicle Can the co-signer take their name off the vehicle?

A Co-signer is always responsible for the item unless the primary borrower refinances and removes the co-signer. Unfortunately if the primary borrower filed bankrupcy it doesn't seem likely they will be able to refinance. Yes. Cosigner means that if for ANY reason the main borrower cannot pay, cosigner will be responsible to pay.


What are the rights of a co-borrower on a home loan?

A borrower and co-borrower on a loan share benefit and liability equally. The only practical difference between the two is that loans are generally priced (interest rate or fees) based on the primary borrowers qualifications (these qualifications may actually determine who is primary and who is secondary). While the primary borrower's name is first on documents for the loan, the co-borrower is equally liable and has the same rights. While your rights as co-borrower may not be less than the borrower, people often overestimate the rights of either party. For example, many divorcing spouses assume they have the right to call the lender and remove themselves from the loan, which is not the case. If you separate and there is no court order to refinance the loan and you never refinance it out of your name and the primary stops making payments, the lender has every right to collect from you and report the late payments on your credit.


If you are a co-borrower not a cosigner are you responsible for repayment of the loan?

Yes, a co-borrower is as responsible for a debt as is the primary borrower. The main difference between co-buyers and cosigners is that a cosigner generally does not have any claims to the property in question but bears the responsibility of repaying the debt should the primary borrowers default on the agreement.

How does it apply to a authorized user on the account and the primary dies and the card is used after the death who is responsible for the debt even if the deceased has no monies in any estate?

The authorized users who had full access to the account are both equally responsible for the debts incurred. The secondary user most likely used the card before the primary became deceased ... just because the primary account holder dies does not dismiss the responsibility of the secondary account user.
