You should contact the loan company and ask how to go about this. I don't know if proof of filing for a legal separation at the courthouse would be sufficient. They (loan co.) may require a dissolution of marriage along with a copy of the MSA (marriage settlement agreement) that stipulates the car was awarded to you. Good Luck!

If you go to the registration office with the primary and have them give consent to the cosigner

User Avatar

The title has nothing to do with the loan. The loan will need to be refinanced using a different cosigner or only the primary borrowers.

User Avatar

Not unless the the cosigner is on the vehicle title. If not on the title the only entitlement the cosigner has is to pay the bill.

As long as the title or registration do not have the thief's name on them....and even if the thief's name is a cosigner you should be able to file a theft report. Ask your local registration office or DMV

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.

Cosigner just means someone who guaranteed the note. What's on the title? If the cosigner is on the title, he/she is entitled to half of the proceeds of a sale or insurance liquidation because it's the TITLE that determines the ownership, not who paid for it.

In most states, yes, the lender is actually the 'owner' until the loan is paid off and can require that the cosigner be on the title.

Take the title in to your DMV and show it to them, and get a new registration.

The only way to be relieved from cosigning obligations is for the primary borrower to refinance the vehicle. And no, if the person's name is not on the car title they have no ownership rights.

User Avatar

The cosigner of the loan owns 1/2 of the property if they are on the title.

CA does not record the title number on the CA registration card. The CA title number is listed in the bottom lower right hand corner of the CA title. Vehicle Registration Wizards - www.vehicleregwizards.com

Take the death certificate, car registration, and car title to the department of motor vehicles in the city/ town of the state you live.

No, a cosigner does not have any legal rights to the vehicle, but does have the legal obligation to repay the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the contract. An exception could be if the cosigner is also named on the title to the vehicle, and if so, how the title is worded.

User Avatar

They can be on the title, but not on the registration or insurance.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

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 does surrendered title mean on my registration?

User Avatar

The grantee in the deed is the owner of the property. A co-signer who guarantees that the mortgage will be paid for someone with poor credit is not necessarily an owner. A co-owner is not usually referred to as a co-signer.

User Avatar

If the loan is paid off, the lender will give you a lien release. With that release in hand visit your local DMV to have the cosigner removed.

Ohio does not require registration of ordinary Title I firearms.

User Avatar

No, cosigners don't have to be on the title. The loan and the ownership of the vehicle are under two completely different agencies.

Yes. The judge can order the spouse who is keeping the vehicle to refinance it in their name only.
