You can take possession ONLY if your name is on the TITLE. Otherwise, you should contact the OWNER(primary borrower) and attempt to work something out to get possesion AND talk to the LENDER about putting the loan in your name ONLY. Dont mess with it if your name is NOT on the title.

BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING, DONT COSIGN FOR ANYONE. IT RESULTS IN UNNECESSARY GRIEF AND STRAINED RELATIONSHIPS.

The documents that the lender has you sign is to protect them, not you. You need to have a side contract that states that what your rights are if the primary buyer defaults. I would have the primary buyer and the lender agree that you can purchase the loan contract from the lender for the remaining balance and can excercise all the rights of the bank. In that document, you should also take a second lien in the collateral. Lastly do not rely upon or act upon anything I have said here before consulting your own attorney.
