Bill, ONLY if the co-signor is listed ON THE TITLE as CO-OWNER. Co-signors only responsibliity is to make the notes if the signor doesnt. Signor is just USING co-signors creditworthiness.

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. If the primary borrower isn't paying then the cosigner must pay or their own credit record will be ruined and the lender can go after them for payment.No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back.

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.


The obligation of a cosigner is discharged by?

Can a person with bad credit get a loan with a cosigner with good credit?

Possibly. However, the cosigner needs to understand all the implications should the one needing the cosign on the load default on payments. If the primary borrower doesn't pay the co-signer will be held personally responsible for paying the loan in full. That's what they agree to when they sign as co-signer.

What is a cosigner responsible for on a car loan?

The co-signer will be completely responsible for paying the loan if the primary borrower defaults on the payments even though the co-signer will have no ownership interest in the vehicle. A co-signer should always be completely informed about the consequences of co-signing. They are guaranteeing that you will pay. If you miss payments it will affect their credit record. If you default it will also wreck their credit. In short, co-signers are responsible in making sure that the primary borrower is able to make the payments on time, and if not, will be their responsibility to continue and settle the payments if the primary borrower fail to do so.


What happens to the cosigner if you are in chp 7 bankruptcy and you default on your car loan?

If you default on your loan, the cosigner is stuck with paying it off. If your credit had been any good in the first place, you would not have needed a cosigner.


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.


Can a cosigner take possession of a car if the primary signer is not paying the payments?

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.


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.


What the loan cosigner's responsibility when the loan is for a friend?

A cosigner's responsibility is to pay the loan in full if the primary borrower fails to pay. The connection to the primary borrower is irrelevant, whether it is a family member or a friend. You should never co-sign unless you can afford to pay your friend's loan. You should also note that when you are required to pay the loan as a cosigner (after the primary borrower defaults) your own credit may be ruined and you will be paying for property that you do not own. The default rate for people who need co-signers is high.


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.
