Not unless the the cosigner is on the vehicle title. If not on the title the only entitlement the cosigner has is to pay the bill.

Can a cosigner who is on the title of a leased car be sued for not paying any payments on the car when the primary leasee is paying off the loan?

First of all it would not be possible to be on the title of a leased vehicle, as the leasor retains ownership rights. A cosigner is only responsible for the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement.


Should a co signer be told if something they signed for is getting repoed?

No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back.

What should you do if you are the primary on your car loan but the cosigner has been paying and you cannot afford the payments any longer?

Sign off your interest in the vehicle to the primary, letting him/her have the right to sell or drive the vehicle. Either way, the primary needs to have control of the property that he/she is paying for.


If a car is in your name as the primary but your cosigner has been making payment for the last year and many of those payments have been paid late can you legally take that car from the cosigner?

Since the cosigners isn't paying, unless you start paying instead, and catch up on all late payments, the dealer or the bank will repossess the vehicle shortly anyway, so your question is moot.

No. A cosigner is just responsible for paying it off if the negligent driver wrecks it and and can't work to make the payments.


What rights does a cosigner have to gain possession of the vehicle if he paid off the loan without your knowledge and the title is in your name only?

If a cosigner's name is not on the title they have no legal claim to the vehicle. They can file a lawsuit against the primary borrower to recover money that they contributed towards the paying of the loan.


Does the primary owner have rights to a auto the cosigner wont pay for?

The primary is the one responsible for paying the loan. If they default (stop making payments) the co-sihner will be responsible for paying the balance or both their credit records will be ruined. If the co-signer's name is not on the title they will not own the property even if they paid for it. They would have to sue the primary borrower in court and obtain a favorable judgment.


Would cosigning a car loan hurt you for a mortgage?

It may. When you cosign a loan it becomes your own debt. By cosigning you agree to be responsible for paying the loan balance if the primary borrower stops making payments. That's why the bank requires a cosigner. If you apply for a mortgage the lender will figure that debt into the calculations as to your ability to repay the mortgage you apply for.It may.

Upon signing a contract where it says Primary Buyer and Co-Buyer where is a Co-Signer supposed to sign?

Cobuyer, cosigner, they are the same thing. Wherever you sign as co-signer you should be aware that if the primary borrower defaults on payments you will be held equally responsible for paying the loan.


Can the cosigner of a student loan be removed when the loan owner stopped paying because she was convinced to by a third party who used defamation of character against the cosigner?

It may depend on your local state laws, but generally, no. Once you cosign, you are liable for payments if the other stops paying, no matter the reason.

Only if your name is on the title, and only if the primary borrower defaults and the vehicle is subject to being repossessed by the lender.
