Go to the lending institution, explain the situation and offer to take care of the remaining part of the debt. Banks don't like to be left with a loss when they repo a vehicle and the auction sales price does not cover the loan amount. Sometimes you can demonstrate your responsibility if you take care of their loss or even a part of it. Remember that you were the loan underwriter and as such you are responsible for the loan if the primary borrower failed to pay. That is the sad part of cosigning, the cosigners often get stuck with the remainder of a bad debt. Paying it off is often your only option if you want to protect your credit. You'll have to give them something if they are to be motivated to NOT file against your credit. I agree with the previous, but if your question is do you have the right to...something (I guess getting the car back?)...because you say the lender didn't inform you of primarys default. Probably not. As above notes, your the cosigner and it's your responsibility. Albeit the loan may have certain "rights to correct" terms. But what exactly would you want (that is possible)...compensation because the one you cosigned for defaulted? More than that I'll wager the bank attempted to contact you. Are you sure the address/phone on the paperwork for you isn't the same as the primary, who may have not wanted you to know what the bank was calling about?
Yes. That is the point of the lender asking for a cosigner. The cosigner will have a repossession showing on their credit as well as the primary lender.
you are still liable for that loan. the lender may decide to not accept the bankruptcy charge and go after you for the money.
READ your contract you signed. Call a local attorney for state specific legal advice.
The other co-owner or cosigner will be responsible for the debt.
A disabled person's vehicle can be repossessed just as any other person's vehicle can be repossessed. You must make all payments on your vehicle if you want to keep it.
A cosigner or coowner cannot repossess a vehicle. That is something the leinholder does.
will primary on a auto loan have right to the vehicle if cosigner has been paying loan for 15 months and has possession of vehicle will primary on a auto loan have right to the vehicle if cosigner has been paying loan for 15 months and has possession of vehicle
It depends on you locatily, but in general, yes, if you are behind on your payment, your vehicle can be repossessed.
Only if the cosigner is also named on the vehicle title.
The cosigner becomes the target next. If you default, it is up to the cosigner to pay the bill or both of your credits are ruined and the bank takes their usual steps to repossess a vehicle.
The cosigner is not able to come and obtain your vehicle for personal reasons or any other reason. A cosigner is not claiming ownership of your vehicle, they are simply vouching for your credibility and agreeing that if payments aren't made that they will uphold the responsibility.?æ
No. A cosigner is just responsible for paying it off if the negligent driver wrecks it and and can't work to make the payments.
No, a cosigner only has the legal obligation to pay the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement.The exception to this would be if the cosigner is a joint title holder of the vehicle.COSINGER!Does a consignor have rights to the vehicle if the people who is buying the car never missed a payment?
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.
by paying the bill or rebuy it at an aucton
They would normally send you statements reminding you that your balance is past due, and the vehicle could be repossessed if the matter isn't settled. The creditor normally won't inform you of when the order for repossession actually is sent out, and you won't normally be informed that your vehicle is being repossessed until the repo man shows up to claim it.
it doesn't matter if the pope takes over your vehicle payments. if he stops making them, your credit is damaged and the vehicle is repossessed.
No. You are only cosigner on the one vehicle you signed for. All bets are off once the car is traded.
It is probably stated in your finance or lease agreement that if you don't make your payments on time that the finance company has the right to repossess the vehicle. Consider yourself informed. Long story short, if you don't want your vehicle repossessed you need to make your payments.
No, the cosigner has no legal liability in such a case, unless, of course, he or she was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the accident.
If there are two individuals listed on the title of a vehicle as primary and joint, they are both responsible for the payment of the loan. If the primary defaults on the payment, the joint owner is responsible for payment. If both parties default, the vehicle can be repossessed.
Yes, that's exactly how it works. If you'd paid for the vehicle at the time of the co-signers bakruptcy you could have kept the vehicle and improved your credit. The creditor wants you to either pay for the remainder of the note or file bankruptcy yourself. * A loan for a vehicle is considered a secured debt and is not dischargeable by the primary borrower(s) or cosigner(s) in bankruptcy action. All parties named on the loan agreement are responsible for the debt unless the SOL for the state in which the vehicle was either purchased or the debtor resides has expired.
No, a cosigner has no legal rights to a vehicle unless his or her name appears on the vehicle title.
