Can your cosigner take your car if you have been making payments on time?

The cosigner issue here is misplaced. The liability of a cosigner comes into play if the primary owner of the car cannot make payments. In the case presented, the primary borrower is doing fine. There is nothing a cosigner can do to take a car away.

If you have a cosigner on a vechicle can they take your vehicle away because he is mad at you?

What are the rights of a cosigner?

A cosigner is a person who signs with another person for a loan of some sort due to credit issues or financial reasons. A cosigner unfortunately does not have as many rights as the person who is first listed on a loan. For example, if you purchase a car and your boyfriend/girlfriend cosigns for you and you two break up, they cannot take the car away from you. However, if you are late on payments, the cosigner will then be responsible for the payments.

Does a co-signer have the right to take away the car or ask for you to refinance only in your name because you broke up?

Yes, the cosigner is partly responsible for the car. Therefor they can take equal ownership or ask that you refinance in your own name so they are no longer liable if you default on a payment. Remember, missing payments will hurt both of your credit histories so they have a right to protect their reputation. * A cosigner has no legal right to any property unless his or her name is on the title, nor can a cosigner force someone to refinance a loan without taking the person to court and receiving a court order directing the primary borrower to take such action.

My bfs mom is the primary on his car and he is the cosigner They haven't been getting along so she threatens to take away the car Can she do this and what is the easiest way to get out of the loan?

The easiest way to get out of a loan is to pay it off. The bank required whatever signatures are presently on the loan in order to guarantee the payments. It won't let a co-signer remove his name. If your friend has been making all the payments himself then perhaps he could refinance the loan in his own name.

If you make double payments for a year for the next year will you be required to make normal payments or can you get away with making no payments until the 3rd year?

You cannot skip a year even if you made double payments for the first year, the bank considers those payments extra and hopefully you made sure the payments went to the principle, not the interest.

Can a cosigner take the car away from the borrower without permission from the borrower By towing it or using the second key to take the vehicle?

A co-signer is not an owner of the car. As such, the co-signer cannot take the car away from the borrower without the borrower's permission.

You live in a condo and fourteen people are behind in assessment can the board put a lien on the unit owners who own the largest amount?

Sure--if you would like to retain a discrimination law attorney. If the board decides to file liens against delinquent condo owners, then it must file liens against all delinquent owners, not just some, unless there is a good reason (such as some owners have set up payment plans). Be sure that any offer to pay the delinquent fees without a lien is extended to all delinquent unit owners, and no delinquent unit owner gets a "better deal" than any other delinquent unit owner. Because attorney fees can be collected in lien filings (at least in my home state of WA), and lien filings can cost thousands in legal fees if not done correctly, see a real estate attorney right away.

Can the mortgage company at any time take your home away if you are still making payments after bankruptcy?

Ususually in BK a house is either voluntarily surrendered, because it is not possible for the borrower(s) to keep up payments.. Or the buyer reaffirms the loan with the lender and works out a plan to repay missed payments. If your mortgage payments are current, I see no reason why the lender would seek foreclosure.

Jill helps Jack get car. Jill is owner and Jack is co-signer. Jack is paying payments but Jill will not let Jack have possession of car. Says she can' t because it is her name. how does Jack get car?

I was in this situation, but it corrected itself before it got ugly. In my case, I was Jack and called the dealership. I found that as a cosigner making the payments for a couple of months, I had the right to take the car from Jill, though I would have to be careful about going onto her property to take it when she wasn't aware, as she could get me for trespassing. But if I found it in a public place or a neutral parking lot, I was totally within my right to drive away in it. The dealership was going to provide me with my own key for a small cost. Thankfully, it didn't come to this, but it was nice to know that I would have the legal ability to do this without recourse if worse came to worst.
