Is the co-signer responsible if primary is deceased?
Debbie, I'm sorry that you lost your brother. Your parents are responsible for the balance due on the bike UNLESS there was life ins. on the loan to cover it. Their best option is to (borrow the money to) PAYOFF the loan NOW. Avoid any more interest and/or FEES. Next option.. MAKE AN OFFER !! Have the cash ready when you make it.Maybe $2000???? Good Luck
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…
What if the primary borrower files bankruptcy is the cosigner still responsible for making payments on the vehicle Can the co-signer take their name off the vehicle?
A Co-signer is always responsible for the item unless the primary borrower refinances and removes the co-signer. Unfortunately if the primary borrower filed bankrupcy it doesn't seem likely they will be able to refinance. Yes. Cosigner means that if for ANY reason the main borrower cannot pay, cosigner will be responsible to pay.
What can a 70-year-old cosigner on a car loan be held responsible for if the loan is found in default?
The cosigner has the same legal obligations to repay the debt as does the primary borrower. If the primary borrower defaults, the lender can begin proceedings to collect the full amount owed plus applicable fees from the cosigner. A cosigner can be sued just as can the primary borrower. And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected…
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.
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.
A lender can't garnish wages; that has to be done by court order. That can be accomplished, but usually only after the lender has made the cosigner responsible for the debt and failed to collect. After all, that's the responsibility of being the cosigner -- to provide payment should the primary borrower fail to pay.

In the State of Texas, the answer would be "YES" as both parties signed for the car loan and both are responsible for the balance due.

Is a wife responsible for a medical debt of her husband's in Ohio if he was on her medical insurance and is now deceased?
Is the primary on a loan obligated to pay back a cosigner if the cosigner pays off the loan without the knowledge of the primary?
YES !!! He/she should certainly discuss it with the cosigner. It may be a gift or it may just be that the cosigner doesn't want to have that note appearing on his/her credit report. Whatever the reason, even if the cosigner did it as a gift, the primary should acknowledge and express appreciation. But be prepared if the cosigner expects the loan to be paid back.
Is a wife responsible for a medical debt of her husband's in Virginia if he was on her medical insurance and is now deceased?
A cosigner is only needed because the primary doesn't have adequate credit rating/history for the needed loan. Hence, the cosigner needs to have credit good enough to qualify for the loan, presumably good, at least betterr than the primary! (Credit scores are not combined or added to get to the needed level). Understand, being a cosigner is essentially the exact same as getting a loan - the cosigner is just as liable as if he…
Only if the co-signer insists on that arrangement. However, the cosigner should be fully informed of their vulnerability when they take on such a responsibility. They will be fully responsible for paying off the loan if the primary borrower defaults, fully responsible for making certain the car is fully insured and they will be legally vulnerable should there be an accident resulting in damages. Only if the co-signer insists on that arrangement. However, the cosigner…

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…

How does it apply to a authorized user on the account and the primary dies and the card is used after the death who is responsible for the debt even if the deceased has no monies in any estate?
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.
