Easy, you can check your own credit report OR go to a registries office and do a quick search. A simpler method is to ask the person that is the primary borrower/buyer or call the lender. Either a cosigner or co-buyer can be listed on the title depending upon the agreement made by the persons involved. The title to a vehicle determines ownership, a cosigner generally has no vested interest in the property only the responsibility of the debt.

Who has control of company vehicles with a cosigner?

Control in what sense? Sell them, transfer title? The cosigner guarantee's the loan on the vehicles and would need to agree to selling them and sign the title. You can use them for any purpose, do anything with them including burning them. You will still be responsible for the loan and if not you the cosigner will have to pay the loan off.

How can you transfer the title to the co-signer?

Thsi depends on who is actually listed on the title alone. If the cosigner appears second or not at all on the title, then the title transfer can be done at the DMV, showing the vehicle was "sold" to the co-signer. This will update the title and registration of the vehicle. Now, if the co-signer also wants to be the sole payee on the car loan, the co-sighner would need to refinance the auto-loan in their name alone and be approved.

Does a cosigner have rights to a vehicle?

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?

Can a lender on an auto loan require a co-borrower or guarantor to go on the title?

The lender can require just about anything, but it is more likely that they will want every name on the title to be on the loan, not the other way around. If anyone should insist the cosigner's name be on the title, it would be the cosigner himself. That will give him a right to take possession of the vehicle if he is stuck with the payments.

Can a cosigner who is on the title of a leased car be sued for not paying any payments on the car when the primary leasee is paying off the loan?

First of all it would not be possible to be on the title of a leased vehicle, as the leasor retains ownership rights. A cosigner is only responsible for the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement.

How do I get my name off your mothers car title and registration?

If she is the primary owner she would have to go get it changed, or you can try to have it removed by going to the DMV and requesting a title change.

Do you have to have a current auto registration to file a claim?

One has nothing to do with the other unless the insurance carrier is asking for the registration to show that the vehicle belongs to you. Often times they will require you to show them a current copy of the registration or the title to the vehicle. The registration is used because most vehicles are financed so the bank or finance company would have possession of the of the actual title since they are the leinholder.

If you bought a house and had it financed with a cosigner are they on the deed and if you are able to refinance yourself can you do it without them?

Since you are both on the loan you are both on the title. You can refinance without them on the loan but would need them to sign the title over or transfer at close.

Im a primary borrower on a loan n i had2 have a cosigner to get my car. i have made several payments on my carnthe cosigner had told me tht he had the car sold hes now got the not makein payments?

Something is not right here. If you are the primary, then why is the cosigner making payments and why does the cosigner have possession of the vehicle? The is back-wards of what it should be. And why in the world would you put the cosigners name on the title? You have a mess on your hands, because you went about this all wrong. You need to contact a lawyer ASAP.

If the cosigner can prove they made all the payments and paid off the loan can they take the car?

No. The co-signer would need to take all that evidence and sue in court to get title to the car transferred unless the owner is willing to sing over the title.
