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.

Can your cosigner take your car if you have been making payments on time?

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.

Does a co-signer have the right to take away the car or ask for you to refinance only in your name because you broke up?

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.


What are the rights of a cosigner?

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.

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.


Does a cosigner have rights to the car even when its paid off?

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.


What legal recourse is there for the cosigner when the person that was cosigned for has defaulted on the loan?

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.
