If your a cosigner and want to remove your name before the loan is paid off will this affect your credit in any way?

A cosigner cannot simply remove their name from the contract. The cosigner is obligated equally with the primary borrower until the loan is paid. A cosigner's credit history will be affected, hopefully in a positive way.


If I am a cosigner on a car loan and it gets repo is the owner of the car responsible for the remaining balance after it is auctioned or is it the cosigner's responsibility?

Both are responsible until paid in full. It will also be on both credit reports as well.


If you have a cosigner on your apartment lease will your credit be affected as much as it would if you did not have a cosigner?

Renting an apartment or home will not show up on your credit. That just builds up rental history for yourself. The only time a renter will ever report you to a credit agency is if you move out with a balance that was not paid within 14 to 30 days of your move out.


If I own a home with a co signer and file a chapter 7 will their credit be affected?

If the mortgage payments are still being made then no - they won't be, however - if you default on the mortgage payments then yes - they will go after the cosigner and if it is not paid their credit will be effected.


Your car gets repossessed and you have a cosigner. What happens to the cosigner's credit?

The co-signer's credit record is wrecked as badly as the primary borrower's. The co-signer has guaranteed the loan would be paid and they are held equally responsible for paying the loan if the primary borrower fails to pay. It will be noted as a default on their credit record. "Co-signers" who agree to guarantee repayment of a loan for a poor credit risk often do so without understanding their own risk and whether they have the resources to repay that loan.


Can credit life be added to the loan and not paid until the end of the loan?

No it can not be paid at the end of the loan. Credit life is to insure the creditor. If you pass away before the loan is paid credit life will pay off the loan. If there is no cosigner then why would you insure the creditor? There is no advantage to you at all for getting credit life.


Should a co signer be told if something they signed for is getting repoed?

No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back. If the primary borrower isn't paying then the cosigner must pay or their own credit record will be ruined and the lender can go after them for payment.No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back.

Is the primary on a loan obligated to pay back a cosigner if the cosigner pays off the loan without the knowledge of the primary?

YES !!! He/she should certainly discuss it with the cosigner. It may be a gift or it may just be that the cosigner doesn't want to have that note appearing on his/her credit report. Whatever the reason, even if the cosigner did it as a gift, the primary should acknowledge and express appreciation. But be prepared if the cosigner expects the loan to be paid back.


Does cosigning a loan go on your credit report if the loan is in good standing?

Your cosigner's credit report should also reflect the loan. In this case, it should show as paid on time as agreed.


Do average college freshmen need a cosigner when getting Chase student loans?

Most freshman will in fact need a cosigner for loans. The need of a cosigner is dependent on how much good credit history the student has available. So, if for example the student was in their late 20's and had successfully paid all debt prior they would not need a cosigner.


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

Can late payments by a primary affect the credit score of a cosigner?

Yes, I am 27 years old I've had credit history for the past 3 years, I have NEVER missed a payment, always paid on time and I only have two credit cards that are open. I cosigned an automobile loan for a "friend" they paid late twice and I just found out my score is 584. BS right.


If you purchase a home with a cosigner and file Chapter 7 will his credit be in jeopardy too?

Without knowing your co-signer's finances, this is impossible to answer. However, if you obtain a discharge of your liability on a mortgage loan, the co-signer would have 100% liability for the remaining balance. If that person is able to make the payments, then no harm would come to their credit record. If the loan gets paid late, goes into default and foreclosure; those derogatory listings would be reflected on that person's credit report and THAT would jeopardize his/her credit.

When paying a settlement is the credit score different if the credit report states 'paid' 'paid in full' or 'settled for less than original amount'?

yes, the credit score is affected. The people pulling your credit look at it this way, they want to know if you paid back what you borrowed with no problems, if there was a problem, or if they settled on a different amount, which means they took a loss. What would you rather see if you pulled a credit report on someone?

When Cosigner pays lender how can name be cleared with credit bureaus?

When a co-signer has to pay a debt for a person, that person's credit will suffer because they were the initial person the lender wanted the money from. It is possible to ask for proof that the debt was paid and send it to the reporting credit bureau to clear a person's name, but it is not always easy to get this type of debt removed from a credit report.
