If the primary buyer refuses to make car payments and drops the car off to the cosigner What is the cosigners responsibility?
To make the car payments. Just be glad you have the car too.
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.
The co-signer is fully responsible for paying the loan and, therefore, they should take over the payments immediately to prevent damage to their own credit record. Cosigners should make certain they know what their obligations are before they sign. A person who has poor credit or no credit record needs a cosigner when they borrow money. A cosigner is a person who accepts the responsibility of repayment of a loan along with the primary borrower…
Yes, a co-borrower is as responsible for a debt as is the primary borrower. The main difference between co-buyers and cosigners is that a cosigner generally does not have any claims to the property in question but bears the responsibility of repaying the debt should the primary borrowers default on the agreement.
If a car is in your name as the primary but your cosigner has been making payment for the last year and many of those payments have been paid late can you legally take that car from the cosigner?
Yes. It is a common misconception that cosigners are not responsible for the debt of the primary on the account they signed. I'm not sure how that started, or why it persists, but cosigners, comakers, coguarantors, and cobuyers are equally responsible for the debt they sign with the primary. Collections agencies will not waste a lot of time trying to get a primary to pay when there is a cosigner who is easier to locate…
Can the cosigner sell the house if his name is not on the deed and the primary borrower has missed 3 payments?
Seems pointless to even consider. If the primary signer didn't have enough funds to make the car payments, they probably will not have enough funds to pay any lawsuit you charge them with. Fact is, if the primary signer defaulted on payments, then the cosigner would be responsible for making them - If repossession occured, then it was due to the fault of the cosigner .. can't sue yourself.
