Only the LENDER can repossess the vehicle. Is this stepson a minor? If so, you have parental authority to tell him he cannot drive the car. Even if he is over 18, if you are the primary on the loan, I'll bet your name is also on the title and if it is you can just take YOUR car.

Can a cosigner ask the court to garnish the borrower's wages to make the loan payments?

The cosigner can ask but I seriously doubt they will be successful. The cosigner knew the risks when they signed the loan application. The cosigner knew, or should have known, the borower's history of successful loan payoffs were questionable at best. The cosigner assumed the responsibility when they signed on.


What are the benefits of a cosigner?

What are the consequences of signing a car loan when the primary borrower defaults on the payments?

If you cosign an auto loan for someone and they refinance in one year and remove you from the loan how will that affect your credit assuming all payments are made on time?

The cosigner's credit isn't affected one ioto unless the person who was responsible for the loan payments defaulted, then and if the cosigner also defaulted. In other words, just being a cosigner does not affect ones credit ratings.


What legal recourse is there for the cosigner when the person that was cosigned for has defaulted on the loan?

The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.


Im a primary borrower on a loan n i had2 have a cosigner to get my car. i have made several payments on my carnthe cosigner had told me tht he had the car sold hes now got the not makein payments?

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.

What are the rights of a cosigner?

A cosigner is a person who signs with another person for a loan of some sort due to credit issues or financial reasons. A cosigner unfortunately does not have as many rights as the person who is first listed on a loan. For example, if you purchase a car and your boyfriend/girlfriend cosigns for you and you two break up, they cannot take the car away from you. However, if you are late on payments, the cosigner will then be responsible for the payments.


Can a lender make you pay for a loan for which you co-signed if the borrower filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and is no longer making payments?

If the borrower cannot make the payments but the cosigner does can the mortgage company still take the house?

Not if the cosigner has been making the payments on time. But often the cosigner doesn't know the loan is in default until it is past due 30 days or more, so if you have received two or three (depends on state laws) Right To Cure Default letters, the bank can foreclose.


Is the cosigner the only one responsible on the loan?

The primary borrower is responsible for making the payments and adhering to the terms of the lending contract. The cosigner is legally obligated only if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement or files bankruptcy (chapter 7).

How can a primary buyer get the cosigner off the loan you wanted to cosign for your daughter but she didn't have enough credit so to build her credit you put her on as a cosigner how can you get her o?

The LENDER will have to remove any co-signor from the loan. Your only option is to have your daughter refinance the loan in her name only. She might be able to do this, given enough positive credit history on the existing loan and proof that it was her making the payments on time.


If im making payments on your carand you have a co-signer when you pay the car off can the co-signer take the car?

No. A cosigner is basically a "lender of money." The cosigner is actually taking out the loan and is responsible for paying that debt off should the person the loan is for defaults. If you haven't missed any payments (more than two) and have paid the debt off then the car is yours to do as you want with it. Marcy


If a parent cosigns on a car loan with hisher child and the child does not make payments can the stepparent be held responsible or have their credit rating impacted if the payments are not made?

The cosigner is responsible for the loan and payments if the signer does not pay or keep up the payments. Your credit rating can be affected.


How can you get out of cosigner even through you already cosigned?

Pay the loan off and then collect payments from the person you cosigned for.


If a person co-signed for another's car will the co-signer be taken if they file for bankruptcy?

Yes! The whole point of cosigning a loan, from the lender's perspective, is that they have 2 people on the hook for the loan in the event it goes sour. If the person stops making payments (bankruptcy or not), they will come after the cosigner, making the cosigner wish he/she had never, ever cosigned.


If you are a cosigner on a vehicle loan and your name is listed on the title as OR then what rights do you have when the primary buyer defaults on payments?

You have the right to pay the loan. When a cosigner enters into a loan agreement he is promising to assume responsibility for the debt should the borrower ever default on the loan. This means simply that if the borrower stops making payments the cosigner will have to take over the payments. You may even be responsible for the full payment of the loan in the event that the borrower dies or is disabled. The cosigner, or in many times, the co-borrower is equally responsible for the debt. The debt will be reflected on the co-signors credit report and may negatively impact the person's credit should the debt become delinquent. If the primary borrower cannot pay the debt, the lender will pursue the co-signor just as equally as the primary borrower. In some cases the lender may only go after the cosigner. If you cosign on a auto loan and the borrower does not make his payments, you will be responsible for making the payments even though you do not have posession of the vehicle. The borrower will be driving around in a vehicle that you are paying for, and it can be a nightmare to extract yourself from this situation. You will not only be responsible for any arrears of the loan; you will also be responsible for any late fees, additional interest, and collection fees.
