Can a cosigner sue the primary borrower?

Anyone is allowed to sue anyone in this day and age, however, the point of having a co-signer is because the primary borrower may not have a credit profile strong enough to get a loan on their own. When suing someone, the goal is to get paid - if the primary borrower did not have enough money or enough credit strength to get a loan, what, exactly, will the co-signer sue them to get? So yes, a co-signer may sue the primary borrower, however, unless circumstances have changed massively since the shared loan was signed, there will be nothing for the co-signer to go after. Depending on the amount of the loan you can sue in small claims court or a higher civil court.

Can't unless you get your name off the loan. The person you co signed for has to get the loan changed out of your name.

Can a cosigner take your house?

The answer to this question can be complicated and I recommend that you check out your State laws. I am also making the assumption that when you say "co signer" you mean cosigned on the mortgage and not some other obligation. It is important to understand how your title is currently recorded. Are you both on title? As far as a lender is concerned, the answer is NO. If the person is a cosigner on your mortgage they would have to remove you from having any obligation on the loan. This can be done by the current co borrower refinancing the home. This of course requires your cooperation and willingness. You can both agree to sell the home. That would be an acceptable way to free the co signer from the obligation. The co signer "could" file suit in court and have a court compel you cooperate. If this is your primary residence, then most courts would require some significant justification for forcing you out. I have seen this happen in cases of divorce, failure to make the monthly payments, and once when a borrower was destroying the home. If the co signer has just "changed their mind about co signing or they are mad at you and want to use this as revenge, then they most likely have an uphill battle ahead of them.

Can a cosigner on a car loan take the vehicle away from the person if they changed their mind about being a co-signer?

No. A co-signer has no legal rights to the property. They are responsible for the debt incurred until the terms of the lending agreement are fulfilled or refinanced without their participation.

What is a revolving credit agreement?

A revolving credit agreement is a legal contract between a lender and a borrower whereby the lender agrees to lend up to a certain amount to the borrower for some period of time. The borrower agrees to make minimum periodic payments during the time that the revolving credit agreement is in force and pay off any balance due at the end of the contract period. Many revolving credit agreements automatically renew after the agreed period (unless the credit circumstances for the borrower have radically changed). An example of a revolving credit agreement is the credit card. A credit card has a credit limit ("up to a certain amount" or "maximum"), an expiration date ("some period of time") and minimum payment requirements ("minimum periodic payments"). Most credit card agreements are renewed before the original agreement (the card) expires.

What is the normal protocol in regards to the names on the title when a homeowner refinances?

Refinancing is simply obtaining a new loan, and should not change the names on the title. If someone is trying to take your name off the title during refinancing, they are trying to cheat you out of your share in the home. Refinancing has no effect on the title of a real property. The changing of title to real property is controlled by the laws of the state in which the property is located. It is extremely important to discuss the way property is to be held before the title is issued to avoid future legal complications. Tenancy-in-Common, Joint Tenancy, Joint Tenancy With Rights of Survivorship or Tenancy-By-The-Entirety (for married couples only). Refinancing can be used to change the names on both the mortgage and the title. That said, there are scams out there where the person who originally owned the house is told they can't be on the mortgage loan and so can't be on the title. THAT IS NOT SO. Look for another lender and question the morality of the person who wants to do this "for" you. In the case of a divorce or other split, one person can sign a quitclaim and a warranty deed and then the names on the title can be changed. == ==

Is it legal to draw a line through a loan document with the amount of the loan and put another amount on the same page?

If you were the borrower, you should have been required to initial the change on the lender's copy to indicate your acceptance of the new terms. If the lender crossed out and changed only the amount on HIS copy without obtaining your initials, he's got no proof that YOU agreed to the changed amount.If you were the lender, the same thing would be true. If you didn't initial the new amount written on the BORROWER'S copy after the initial amount was crossed out by the borrower, he has no proof that you agreed to any change to the original amount.Added; The initials or the signatures of BOTH signatories to the loan must appear in close proximity to the change that was made. If they don't - - see the first answer.

After paying off a debt collection does your credit go up?

Yes, if you have a bad debt reported to your credit listing and unpaid balance this hurts both your credit rating along with your balance between debt-to-income if you had been considering purchasing or refinancing a home. When you payoff this debt, the balance is changed to reflect that you have made this payment, which will improve your credit standing.
