Car Buying
Credit Reports

If someone co-signs for a car does this show up on their credit report and can they still buy their own car?

Yes and yes.

BUT the amount that you co-signed for is considered to be YOUR debt until that loan is paid off, so the amount you can possibly borrow has been reduced by your signing as a co-payee on that first car loan.

Yes. If they extend the line of credit to you, and you do not activate it, it will still show up on your credit report.

If one has a bad credit history, it is still possible to get a mortgage. If one cosigns for a loan with someone else, they have a better chance. One should also attempt to improve their credit. Wells Fargo, Quicken Loans, and many other places offer mortgages.

The foreclosure will be on your credit report indefinitely.

If it isn't on your credit report, the credit card company still has hopes of you paying it off. When they see that isn't going to happen, you can bet your butt that it WILL be on your credit report.

If 1099 c is received and the debt is cancelled means that it still remains on your credit report.
