An authorized user, which is all you are - he is the actual card holder - is not responsible for the bill.
Nothing unless they filed on your loan.
No. Authorized Users are NOT liable for the debt, only the PRIMARY on the account is liable.
If you were only an authorized user and not a joint account holder, you should never be responsible for the primary account holder's debt.
No. An authorized user is not responsible for credit card debt in any situation. Sorry, I failed to mention that the exception is if the "AU" is a spouse and the couple reside in a community property state. What if the authorized user charged on the card? Would he be held responsible for that?
AN authorized user cannot be held responsible for a primary holder's debt in any case. Only a joint holder can be liable for the debt. YES OF COURSE
It depends if the secondary card holder is a "Joint Account Member" or a "Authorized User". The joint account member is responsible for the balance, the authorized user is not.
An authorized user on a credit card can be responsible on an account in which the primary card holder passes. The creditor looks at the situation as the authorized card holder was able to make purchases with the account, and should be held liable, even in the event of the primary's death.
If the BK filer is allowed to discharge the debt a joint account holder who is not a party to the bankruptcy becomes solely responsible for the entire amount. Cancelling or closing the account will not change the fact that the person will still owe the debt and it will eliminate the possibility of said person to negotiate terms with the lender if it becomes necessary. If the joint account holder continues to meet the required terms of the account agreement his or her credit score will not be negatively affected.
if you are an authorized user on the card then you are responsible for the card too. so yes they can
I'm trying to follow what your really saying: Presumably there is a "primary" ...that would be the one who applied for the credit and signed the agreements to pay the charges. That person requested a card for another person to use, under the primaries credit agreement, and agreed to be responsible for the charges that person made...the credit card company went along with this request...but it was NOT extending any credit, or even had any type of agreement with this other authorized signer. All charges by that person are the responsibility of the primary...the debt from using the card is not to the second (authorized) person...and any debt (if there is one you can prove), would be by the authorized user to the primary...if they had an agreement that the authorized would pay for any use. The primary would be a creditor of the authorized in that bankruptcy. The credit card company isn't a part of it...the debt remains with the primary...regardless of any payment or not he gets from the authorized party or their bankrutcy. And alternatively, if the authorized person made charges and the primary goes BK, that charges are part of the primaries BK, (and may be discharged). Again, if there is an agreement that the authorized would pay those charges, that "receivable" or asset to the Primary must be reported as such in his BK filing.
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).
GET the car(if you want it), make arrangements with LENDER to do what they will expect you to do anyway....NO DONT pay for it and YES it will be bad
No. A co-buyer owns part of the property, how much a portion depends on how the title is worded. A cosigner is pledging equal responsibiliy for the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the loan. Even if the primary borrower declares bankruptcy the cosigner might still be responsible for a portion or all of the debt.
The authorized users who had full access to the account are both equally responsible for the debts incurred. The secondary user most likely used the card before the primary became deceased ... just because the primary account holder dies does not dismiss the responsibility of the secondary account user.
The loan becomes at worst like a single-signer loan. You are free to refinance or pay it off. Which you were, anyway. The only entity affected by the bankruptcy of a cosigner on a loan is the lender.
No, the primary signer is still liable. But if a loan is not dischargeable, such as a student loan (actually is is extremely hard to discharge), both the primary and co-signer will STILL be liable after the bankruptcy
As a cosigner, you are not at all protected if the primary signer files for bankruptcy. In many cases, filing for bankruptcy relieves the primary signer on the loan from his obligations towards the loan, at which point the lender will turn to the cosigner for payment. You'll either have to pay the loan or file for your own bankruptcy (if necessary).Unfortunately, you're stuck with the loan regardless of whether or not the primary signer successfully completes his bankruptcy filling. You may want to contact a bankruptcy lawyer for some additional advice or assistance.
When adding an authorized user to your account, you are agreeing to any and all charges that person places on the account. If the authorized user chooses to abuse the account, such as making purchases beyond the amount that you are able to pay or by exceeding the limit of the card, the negative effects goes against the primary users credit. The authorized users credit is not affected at all and they are not responsible for payments. So be careful who you chose to add to your card.
It is possible that they would hold you responsible for the entire balance of the account. It could be seen as a fraudulent conveyance to continue using an account after someone has died. The company has the legal right to be notified of the death of a card holder so that it can file a colleton judgment against the estate, if there is one. I would advise youto stop using the card immediately and seek legal counsel, just in case. No, as an "authorized user" you are not responsible for the balance.For more info: http://www.bcsalliance.com/z_authorizedusers.htmlRESPONSE TO ABOVE ANSWER: The question pertains to if the PRIMARY IS DECEASED and the authorized user continues to use the card. Yes, while the primary card holder is ALIVE, the authorized user is not liable. And the authorized user will not be held responsible for charges incurred before the primary has died. It would seem extremely unlikely, however, that banks or law would permit an individual to continue to use a line of credit of a dead person if they aren't legally responsible for repayment.
CR??? NO. The loan?? Possibility. that's why the lender required you to have a co-signor. Your CR is not very good. They could require you to get another co-signor or demand payoff.
what happens when you file bankruptcy and your second home you own as an investment is placed in the bankruptcy by mistake the house getsfor closed on and sold but no title search is done to see that there are actually two mortgages on the house who is responsible for the second mortgage
The primary would be held liable for the debt.
WHEN MEDICARE IS PRIMARY, THE PATIENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECONDARY COPAY.
