YES, you can include it whether the payments are current or not.
Pay the loan off and then collect payments from the person you cosigned for.
Cosigning for ANYONE is one big mistake. If the person you cosign for is not making the payments then the person that cosigned is responsible for all payments. I have no idea why anyone would want to do this. Unless there were stipulations in the contract you signed with the buyer, then no, they can't just up and sell the car. Take another look at your contract. Marcy
Contact whomever holds the lien, they will allow you to make payments and take posession of said vehicle if signor has ceased to make payments. I have already contacted the lien holder and they advised me that they would not get involved with me taking possession of the vehicle. All they wanted from me were back payments. I brought the payments up to date. Now I want to get the vehicle in my possession. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful at contacting the person I cosigned for. I've even heard that he may have moved out of Michigan. I have a copy of the Michigan registration showing myself as an owner. I am currently awaiting documentation from the state that I am on the title. What is my next step towards getting possession of the car?
If a person's name is listed on a title, that person owns the car. If a person merely cosigned the note, that person's name will not be on the title. If you own the car, you certainly can take physical possession of it.
if you are from 'merica
Yes! The whole point of cosigning a loan, from the lender's perspective, is that they have 2 people on the hook for the loan in the event it goes sour. If the person stops making payments (bankruptcy or not), they will come after the cosigner, making the cosigner wish he/she had never, ever cosigned.
Only if they are a joint title holder of the vehicle.
the person making out a cheque and using it for payments
Yes, but only if you are the cosigner. When you cosign it is usually for these reasons: The person the loan is for is a minor The person has a poor credit rating The person doesn't have collateral When you cosign you are 100% responsible for that debt. All the banking institution is interested in is getting their money, so if the car was repossessed the cosigner has two options ... take over the payments or sell the car and hope it pays off the total loan. It's a smart thing to do so it doesn't ruin one's credit rating. If you aren't the cosigner, but the person the loan went too, shame on you! If you can afford to continue to make payments now, then you could have made those payments on the loan cosigned by someone who was nice enough to do it.
Yes, Orchard Bank online payments are legal payments. Making online payments is faster, easier, and often more secure for both the person making the payment and the bank itself.
Yes..... I did
If the payments ARE being made on time, and if they are being made by YOU, the cosignor should have no rights to the vehicle. The police are going to look at whose name is on the title to determine who keeps the car.
No. They can't put you in jail.
No, you would have to redo the loan.
Sadly, no. Cosigning essentially affords no rights, only obligations.
About 2 weeks after you make the last payment.
Unfortunately if you cosigned a loan that means you were willing to pay the loan if the other signer defaults and if that happen they will go by any means to collect that money that you "cosigned/said" you would cover if the other person defaults. I would go after that person that you cosigned for if it has gone this far.
As far as the auto loan you cosigned for, nothing will happen as long as the person who actually borrowed the money makes the payments on time.
If your name is the borrower name and someone else is making payments and they suddenly stop; then the car will eventually get repoed and it will show on your credit report.
Very little, you will have to pay.
Of course not. The car has not been stolen. But guess who is going to have to make the payments if the primary lender does not. You the cosigner, that's who. I would suggest you talk to the person you cosigned the loan for. If I were going to have to make the payments I would for sure try to gain possession of the vehicle. This is the very reason cosigning is a bad idea.
start making payments
if they have paid the loan off they do.
