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

Does a cosigner have to have good credit?

Absolutely. The whole point to having a co-signer is the creditor wants assurance that the debt will be repaid.


What personal information is required of a cosigner for a car loan?

Name address, credit history, outstanding debts, income verification, etc. A co-signer needs to supply as much information as the primary borrower since the lender wants to make certain the loan will be repaid.Name address, credit history, outstanding debts, income verification, etc. A co-signer needs to supply as much information as the primary borrower since the lender wants to make certain the loan will be repaid.Name address, credit history, outstanding debts, income verification, etc. A co-signer needs to supply as much information as the primary borrower since the lender wants to make certain the loan will be repaid.Name address, credit history, outstanding debts, income verification, etc. A co-signer needs to supply as much information as the primary borrower since the lender wants to make certain the loan will be repaid.


What legal action does the cobuyer have if the buyer doesnt pay the payments for the car loan?

Don't know of any state that allows a co-buyer. There might be. For this purpose, let's use co-signer. What legal action does the co-signer have if the buyer doesn't make the car payments? In reality, the co-signer signed as a guarantee that the payment would be made and on time on the specified date. The buyer is the one buying. That's 2 different operations. The co-signer, at last known fact, cannot take the car because he is not buying it. He's paying THE LOAN since (and we're assuming here) the buyer is not paying. In my experience, if the buyer wants to be a horse patootie, he can drive that car with a smile on his face and not make payments because the co-signer IS OBLIGATED TO MAKE THE PAYMENTS. If the co-signer does not make the payments, then HIS CREDIT IS RUINED! Never co-sign, if at all possible.


What happens to your credit if you co-sign for someone and they quit making payments?

When you co-signed you agreed to pay the loan if the primary borrower defaults. That is the only purpose of requiring a co-signer. The person who applied for the loan doesn't have a good credit record and the lender wants to make certain the loan is paid so they arrange for someone with better credit to co-sign the loan. If you don't make the payments your credit will be ruined.When you co-signed you agreed to pay the loan if the primary borrower defaults. That is the only purpose of requiring a co-signer.

Will having a cosigner lower your APR or enable you to borrow more?

The lender should be looking only at your ability to repay the loan when they determine the amount they will lend, since they assume you will be making the payments. They also want to be sure the cosigner can make the payments if you don't, but they would not combine the two financial statements to determine the amount that the two of you together could afford. They may offer a slightly better interest rate, but if the lender wants you to get a cosigner, it usually means you will not get a loan without one.


How can you transfer the title to the co-signer?

Thsi depends on who is actually listed on the title alone. If the cosigner appears second or not at all on the title, then the title transfer can be done at the DMV, showing the vehicle was "sold" to the co-signer. This will update the title and registration of the vehicle. Now, if the co-signer also wants to be the sole payee on the car loan, the co-sighner would need to refinance the auto-loan in their name alone and be approved.


Is a cosigner still responsible if the first party filed bankruptcy but reaffirmed the car loan?

The company wants their money so if the primary doesnt pay then the cosigner must. Their is no way of getting around this. Bankruptcy should be outlawed. If you cant afford things dont take on the debt.


You are a cosigner on a vehicle and now the primary signer wants to sell the car. If you write a notarized letter giving her permission to sell or trade in the vehicle will this remove the cosigner?

Before, or at least as part of the process of, selling the car, the original loan will need to be repaid. The lienholder will not release title to the buyer until this has happened. There's no need for any letter, notarized or otherwise. This will effectively remove you as cosigner, since that loan will no longer exist. If something other than a straightforward sale is going on, then you should contact the finance company to find out what procedure to follow to ensure that you're no longer on the loan.


If a cosigner of a car loan wants to get off the loan but it's not a good idea for the other party due to credit score can the cosigner take legal action to get off the loan?

Probably not. You, like the primary party, signed a contract as an independednt, free-thinking adult. It is assumed under the eyes of the law that you knew what your were getting into. You are as bound by contract law as the primary.


Can someone cosign for only a certain amount on a loan such as if the person only wants to cosign for 12k but the loan is 17k?

No. You co-sign for the note as indicated on the documents you sign. There is no half way. Beware ... When a lender asks for a co-signer, the lender knows that the co-signer will have to make at least some of the payments. This answer comes from experience.


If you filed for bankruptcy would the cosigner of your auto loan be forced to take over payment?

The answer is that the cosigner would be left responsible for taking over the payments. If the cosigner wants to maintain his or her credit rating (which is probably damaged due to your filing bankruptcy), If the consignor does not want the auto loan people to sue for any remaining balance, then he or she will need to keep making the payments. If the auto loan company sues for any remaining balance and gets a judgment, then the auto loan company will go after the assets of the consignor and or garish their earnings. attempt o seize their assets or garnish their earnings.


Does a co-signer have to have permission from the Primary Account Holder to be taken off of a car loan?

A co-signer of a car loan needs the permission of the lender to be taken off the loan. That is not likely to happen since the lender wants as many sources as possible for repayment of the loan. Each co-signer is responsible for 100% of the loan. If one doesn't pay the other will be held responsible.
