Well if the original person that you co-signed with defaults on the payments and you are stuck with the payments, technically it is your vehicle and you can take the person to court and take control of the vehicle.

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.


No. Unless the cosigner is also a title holder they have no legal rights to the vehicle.


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


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


No, the cosigner will not have rights to the car after its paid off because the purpose of a cosigner is to pay off the notice if you fail to do so. Being a cosigner does not give them to any rights to the car.


I had this very same instance come up and the police were called. They told me that as long as the payments were being made and you have proof of you making the payments on time, the cosigner has to leg to stand on when trying to take the car. So NO your cosigner can not take the car.


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.


If you are late on your loan payment and are a cosigner on your daughters car can they repposses the car?


Yes. You need to discuss this with the lender.


Unless you are also on the title you will need to do it through a lawsuit.


HOW COULD I GET A NEW CAR RIGHT AWAY?


Yes: Your spouse/children can be included on your insurance policy regardless of who was/if there was a cosigner on the car.




No, the cosigner signs on to the loan. Usually, the primary signer owns the car and drives it. The cosigner is there in case the loan goes into default and needs to be paid for. After they sign on the car does not belong to them, but the person who took out the loan.


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.


No. He/she simply has to pay the loan if you don't. Has no real right to the car even if you do miss payments. Has to go to court and show you have defaulted on the loan and has paid on it.


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.


A cosigner can attempt to sell the car at anytime. However, in order for them to sell it, they have to have the other signer's signature.
