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.

Can a cosigner take away your car even though payments are not delinquent?

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


Does a cosigner have legal rights to take your car if the borrower never defaults on payments?

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.


Does the cosigner have to drive 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.

What are the rights of the cosigner to sell a car?

None, unless the cosigner is also on the title of the vehicle they have no legal rights to the property. When someone cosigns a loan for any reason they accept the responsibility of paying the debt if the primary borrower defaults. The only option a cosigner has in recovering money paid out in connection with the loan is to sue the primary borrower in the appropriate court, in the city or county where the borrower lives.


Does the cosigner have any rights to a car by paying it off even if he's not on the title?

I think the cosigner should have legal rights for the car especially if they are making payments on it. If payments are not paid, it effects the co-signers credit adversely and he is still financially responsible for the car until it it paid off. In fact I've heard the lender tends to come after the co-signer harder than the primary because they just want the debt to be paid (and the primary can't pay) - that makes sense. What other resort does the cosigner have to relieve himself of a bad financial situation and bad credit rating. I've also heard of the cosigner suing the primary for the deficiency, which is the difference between what's left to pay off the note and the actual amount he got for the car, if that amount is less than the note. NAME ON TITLE = You can take the car and use it yourself or sell it. NAME ON LOAN = You can make the payments. Cosigning is an agreement to pay but paying does not give you any rights to the property.


What rights does a cosigner have to gain possession of the vehicle if his name is on the title in Pennsylvania?

It depends on what the title says. The title can say "The owner of the vehicle is Name 1 or Name 2." If the title says this then the cosigner has limited rights to get the car. Whoever has the vehicle can sell the car without the cosigners signature. Now if the cosigner has the car, the cosigner can sell the car without the main owners signature. If the title states Name 1 and Name 2, then you have same rights as the main owner of the car. This means if Name 1 trys to sell it, they can't sell it without your signature.


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.
