Yes..... I did
Well if the original person that you co-signed with defaults on the payments and you are stuck with the payments, technically it is your vehicle and you can take the person to court and take control of the vehicle.
Whomever is named on the TITLE has equal rights to the possession of the car.
Only if they are a joint title holder of the vehicle.
A cosigner is a person who signs with another person for a loan of some sort due to credit issues or financial reasons. A cosigner unfortunately does not have as many rights as the person who is first listed on a loan. For example, if you purchase a car and your boyfriend/girlfriend cosigns for you and you two break up, they cannot take the car away from you. However, if you are late on payments, the cosigner will then be responsible for the payments.
Pay the loan off and then collect payments from the person you cosigned for.
you are still liable for that loan. the lender may decide to not accept the bankruptcy charge and go after you for the money.
When you cosign for anyone you are taking 100% responsibility for the payments on that car. If the person that gets the car doesn't keep their payments up it will be repossessed by the bank with an option for the cosigner to take over payments or sell the car and pay back the loan. Marcy
The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.
The cosigner on an automobile loan is not the person who has to pay for insurance on the vehicle. The registered owner should pay the fees for insurance. However, it is the cosigner's responsibility to make sure the registered owner is carrying insurance for the vehicle.
can a person drive a vehicle of a deceased person that is deliquent in payments
Of course not. The car has not been stolen. But guess who is going to have to make the payments if the primary lender does not. You the cosigner, that's who. I would suggest you talk to the person you cosigned the loan for. If I were going to have to make the payments I would for sure try to gain possession of the vehicle. This is the very reason cosigning is a bad idea.
it doesn't matter if the pope takes over your vehicle payments. if he stops making them, your credit is damaged and the vehicle is repossessed.
You do not even need to take the person to court. You being the cosigner has just as much right to the vehicle as they do. You can go take the vehicle anytime you want to.
If a person's name is listed on a title, that person owns the car. If a person merely cosigned the note, that person's name will not be on the title. If you own the car, you certainly can take physical possession of it.

When you cosign on a loan, you are liable for payment of that loan if the other person does not make payments. Any late payments and other negatives will be reflected on your credit report. The debt will be included in your debt-to-income ratio. If the person makes all payments on time, it could actually help your credit score. Usually, it's the other way around, though. Bottom line: as a cosigner, you are treated as a signer.
a cosigner is a person who is responsible for the rest of the rent that you don't pay if u get evicted the person who signed as a cosigner will have to go to court
They would need to have the vehicle refinanced in their name only or obtain another cosigner for the refinancing.
If the other person has been making payments on time, then the co-signer should not have to do this.
Yes, but only if you are the cosigner. When you cosign it is usually for these reasons: The person the loan is for is a minor The person has a poor credit rating The person doesn't have collateral When you cosign you are 100% responsible for that debt. All the banking institution is interested in is getting their money, so if the car was repossessed the cosigner has two options ... take over the payments or sell the car and hope it pays off the total loan. It's a smart thing to do so it doesn't ruin one's credit rating. If you aren't the cosigner, but the person the loan went too, shame on you! If you can afford to continue to make payments now, then you could have made those payments on the loan cosigned by someone who was nice enough to do it.
That's what they do at the bank, if the main person does not make the payments the cosigner is responsible to take it over.
The cosigner's credit isn't affected one ioto unless the person who was responsible for the loan payments defaulted, then and if the cosigner also defaulted. In other words, just being a cosigner does not affect ones credit ratings.
You need to make those payments directly to the creditor or the late payments will be reflected as your own debt on your credit record. Thats what you contracted to do when you decided to be the co-signer. You should never hand over cash to pay loan payments to a person who is already defaulting on those payments. You may want to consult with an attorney about taking possession of the vehicle through a civil process.
