Yes, because then they have a vested interest in the property, whereas a cosigner usually has no legal rights to the vehicle and is only agreeing to assume the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the contract.

Do You need a cosigner if your married?

Having a cosigner has nothing to do with your marital status. It's all about your credit. If you do need a cosigner for lets say a car loan, then it's better to have your spouse sign than ask a relative/friend to sign. Unless your spouses' credit is bad, then you have to look into a person who has good credit. Hope this helps!


Can you buy a home with a co-signer who has a higher ratio or assets?

Can a person take a car out of state without permission of cosigner?

No they can not because then the cosinger can report te car being stolen. YES YOU CAN AS LONG AS YOU ARE THE PRIMARY OWNER OF THE VEHICLE. THE COSIGNER IS JUST A PERSON WHO HAS MADE AN AGREEMENT WITH THE BANK THAT IF FOR SOME REASON YOU SHOULD DEFAULT ON THE LOAN THE BANK CAN PURSUE THE COSIGNER. BECAUSE THE COSIGNER PRESUMABLY HAS BETTER CREDIT AND STRONGER WORK HISTORY, THUS THE ABILITY TO REPAY THE LOAN. OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO BE OF AGE AND FOLLOW ALL OF THE LAWS WHEN DRIVING.

I have co-signed for a friend for a new car Should'nt I have copies of all the paperwork on it?

No, you do not need copies, but can easily get copies by asking for them. Your first mistake was cosigning the loan. You are now responsible for this loan and you better pray he makes the payments on time. IMO, cosigning for a loan on anyone other than family is foolish at best. You may end up loosing a friend and lots of money to boot.

What if the co-buyer says they are not going to make any more payments and the vehicle breaks down and need repair?

If the cobuyer is in possession of the vehicle in this scenario, then eventually the lender will put it out for repossession. Once located, the repo agent will secure the vehicle or will have it assessed for the lender to determine if they want it or not, if it is worth repossessing. Either way, if you are the primary on the account, it will negatively affect your credit. It might be better for you to contact the lender and divulge the location of the unit. As a signer on the loan, you have the right to sign a voluntary repossession and surrender the vehicle. In light of the irresponsible behavior of the cosigner, it is the right thing to do.

Can you get a loan for a vehicle with a cosigner at 16 years of age?

From what i understand, you have to be 18 to enter into a binding contract...and so its up to the bank whether or not you can get one because they can't enforce it on you...so you will definitely need a cosigner and the bank will look at both your credits to see if it's worth the risk i know this because my friend signed for a loan w/ his parents as cosigners and because i also wanted a personal loan and the bank told me i needed a cosigner with better credit :P


Will having a cosigner lower your APR or enable you to borrow more?

The lender should be looking only at your ability to repay the loan when they determine the amount they will lend, since they assume you will be making the payments. They also want to be sure the cosigner can make the payments if you don't, but they would not combine the two financial statements to determine the amount that the two of you together could afford. They may offer a slightly better interest rate, but if the lender wants you to get a cosigner, it usually means you will not get a loan without one.


Can a cosigner be affected on a home foreclosure?

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. And, because both are equally responsible, there is no need to even try to get the primary who is not paying to do what they are already not doing when the contract was written based on the better credit of the cosigner.
