How do you rent your house out?

When renting out your house you want to make sure you do it legally by using a residential lease agreement. In a residential lease agreement you will list the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and the tenant. You also need proof of a residential agreement before you can legally evict a tenant using the legal notice of eviction process.

Can the cosigner for a car get off the lease and do they have rights to sell the car?

No one is released from contract unless the lender has some mitigating reason to allow it. This is usually death of a borrower. Other than that, the only legal way to "get off of a lease" is to pay the loan off. In most circumstances, but check your state law, the cosigner has the same rights and responsibilities as the primary signer. The lender is not going to referee your domestic disputes. Probably best to consult a contract lawyer. A co-signer has no legal rights to a vehicle unless his or her name is on the title. The cosigner is responsible for the entire amount of the loan if the primary borrower defaults; and cannot be removed from the lending agreement until the loan is paid in full or is refinanced without said cosigner being a participant.
