It sounds entirely reasonable that you would pay them back for the remaining amount of the loan and for the needed repairs. I assume that the co-signer was trying to get the loan off of his credit and that perhaps you were not paying regularly or on time. There may be other circumstances that are not addressed here.

Nothing. The only option for being remove as a cosigner is to have the original loan refinanced without the cosigner participating.

The only way to take a cosigner off of a loan is to refinance it.

You don't need a license to get a loan. Your credit rating will determine whether you need a cosigner or not.

The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.

ONLY if you are listed on the TITLE as co-owner. Othwise you have NO rights to possession, ONLY payment of the loan.

User Avatar

if you take it to your personal bank and ask them how much you need to have paid already they can indeed refinace you and remove the cosigner

If you owe money on a car loan or are a cosigner for a car loan, yes.

User Avatar

Yes. You need to discuss this with the lender.

A cosigner cannot be removed from the debt obligation except by a refinancing of the loan without the original cosigner's participation.

User Avatar

NO! He is only guaranteeing the loan. He has no legal right to take the car.

User Avatar

No you can build credit by taking out a loan and paying it back ON TIME. Or have someone cosign a loan for you in order to get approved for a card or loan but make sure the cosigner fully understands the agreement because they'll take on most of the risk.

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.

No, a cosigner has no legal rights to a vehicle unless his or her name appears on the vehicle title.

User Avatar

You have the title company write up a "quit-claim deed" for the property. You need to sign it and then the person you want off the loan has to sign it (but they MUST have it notarized), then it can be mailed back to the title company for completion.

User Avatar

Not likely, the lender will probably require you to refinance the loan in only the co-signers name.

A cosigner is only needed because the primary doesn't have adequate credit rating/history for the needed loan. Hence, the cosigner needs to have credit good enough to qualify for the loan, presumably good, at least betterr than the primary! (Credit scores are not combined or added to get to the needed level). Understand, being a cosigner is essentially the exact same as getting a loan - the cosigner is just as liable as if he got the loan on his own..in fact needs to be more responsible, because he now has to take on the obligations of the primary too, if needed, likely without the control/posession/benefit of what was purchased.

The co-signer is fully responsible for paying the loan and, therefore, they should take over the payments immediately to prevent damage to their own credit record.Cosigners should make certain they know what their obligations are before they sign. A person who has poor credit or no credit record needs a cosigner when they borrow money. A cosigner is a person who accepts the responsibility of repayment of a loan along with the primary borrower. The lender requires a cosigner to increase the chances that it will be repaid. The cosigner is sometimes referred to as the guarantor because they guarantee the full repayment of the loan in the event the borrower defaults. The cosigned loan will appear as a debt on the cosigners credit record.The co-signer is fully responsible for paying the loan and, therefore, they should take over the payments immediately to prevent damage to their own credit record.Cosigners should make certain they know what their obligations are before they sign.

When you cosign for anyone you are taking 100% responsibility for the payments on that car. If the person that gets the car doesn't keep their payments up it will be repossessed by the bank with an option for the cosigner to take over payments or sell the car and pay back the loan. Marcy

User Avatar

Yes. If the original borrower defaults, and the cosigner is unable to take over the debt.

User Avatar

No, a co-signer has no legal right to a vehicle unless they are on the title.

User Avatar

Nobody is responsible for the loan if there was on cosigner. If the car was inherited by someone, then that person has a right to pay the debt owed and take possession of the title.

User Avatar

From my experience, you would have to re-finance the suto loan with the new co-signer.

Since you are 17, most states still consider you a minor. Your cosigner will probably have to take the loan out in their name only and be responsible for its repayment.
