Only if the cosigner is also named on the vehicle title.
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.
No, a cosigner has no legal rights to a vehicle unless his or her name appears on the vehicle title.
Something is not right here. If you are the primary, then why is the cosigner making payments and why does the cosigner have possession of the vehicle? The is back-wards of what it should be. And why in the world would you put the cosigners name on the title? You have a mess on your hands, because you went about this all wrong. You need to contact a lawyer ASAP.
Two things to consider here: First, the cosigner is an equal owner of the vehicle regardless of whether or not any payment has been made by him. This is a matter of contract law. Second, and typically in cases where payments are not current, the cosigner/co-owner can take possession of the vehicle to protect his credit if his intention is to surrender the unit or to make payments current.
Whomever is named on the TITLE has equal rights to the possession of the car.
No. You are the primary borrower and are honoring your financial obligation.
Yes. The primary and the cosigner are equal owners of the vehicle. If all things are equal, and the loan is current, and one of the contract parties takes possession of the vehicle over the other, it is a civil matter and must be decided by a judge.
If you are a co-signer of a repossesion, and the primary borrower has not made an attempt to make their payments then you are fully responsible for this debt.
When someone co-signs, they are basically just agreeing to making the payments when the signer can not. * Any legal rights that a cosigner or a co-buyer(borrower) have depend upon whether or not their name is on the title to the vehicle.
NO. As the cosigner, you are only guaranteeing the loan.
Only if they are a joint title holder of the vehicle.
