None really. Even if you are on the title to the car as well as being a cosigner, you can't do anything without the other person. All you can do to protect yourself if make the payments. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at www.dealertricks.com

What are the rights of a cosigner?

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.

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


What legal recourse is there for the cosigner when the person that was cosigned for has defaulted on the loan?

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.

Can a lien holder report the car stolen for being behind 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.

What effect does a student loan have on a cosigner and the cosigners credit?

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.

Do you have the right to sell a car after repossession on a cosigned loan?

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.

If you cosign an auto loan for someone and they refinance in one year and remove you from the loan how will that affect your credit assuming all payments are made on time?

What do you do if you've co signed for someone and they are not making payments and you have given them money to catch up their payments and they still didn't make the payments and hid the vehicle?

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.
