How do you remove a cosigner from a credit card?
The way that can be accomplished is determined by the terms of the lending agreement. Very few, if any lending institutions would allow an account to be amended. The usual procedure is for the account to be closed leaving the original cosigner still responsible to the debt incurred up to the time of closure. The primary holder can then open another account on there own or with another cosigner.
Can you remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgment on the repossession?
Yes, having a cosigner on a loan or line of credit/ credit card can help your credit. It can help because, assuming they have good credit, you are more likely to get approved, which gives you a chance to build your credit. The danger is if the cosigner where to default on payments or abuse the account (such as using a credit card you both are signers on to rack up a lot of debt)…
If the cosigner of your credit card files for bankruptcy will this effect your credit rating as well?
If you are a cosigner in someone's loan for a line of credit and he is at default what can the cosigner do to take his name back?
Can someone with bad credit co-sign with someone with good credit and get a card using the other person's good credit?
You've got that stated backward. The person with bad credit who needs a credit card would be the borrower. He has to find someone with good credit to be the cosigner. And the cosigner has to really trust the borrower because he is going to be responsible for repaying the card if (when) the borrower doesn't.
If your a cosigner and want to remove your name before the loan is paid off will this affect your credit in any way?
If the cosigner has a good credit rating any credit card company would be more than happy to let them cosign. All credit card companies are interested in is getting their money back. The cosigner should always be as sure as possible that the person they are cosigning for is reliable and will pay back any outstanding balance because if they don't the cosigner is 100% responsible in paying that debt back!
