You have the SAME rights the buyer has,pay it current,ins, it, pay the notes on time OR pay off the loan. That gets it out of repo. IF no one does that, your rights are still the same. You can be sued for the balance due after the lender sells the car.Your wages garniaheed,ect. The reason for repo is default NOT criminal action.

Yes. That is the point of the lender asking for a cosigner. The cosigner will have a repossession showing on their credit as well as the primary lender.


What can a cosigner do after a car is repossessed Can they sue the primary signer?

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.

Yes, you can switch the cosigner to the primary on a loan. The way to do this is to have the loan refinanced.

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. I was the primary signor but the cosigner had the car and was making the payments. Then she stopped making payments after owning the car for 3 years and the car was repossessed.

How do you the cosigner sue primary borrower?

The cosigner contacts an attorney who will process the paper work for him. Or, the cosigner can file the suit (foolishly) pro se (on your own). Or, the cosigner can file the suit in small claims court. What is important is that the cosigner can show significant and real damages before filing, or hope he is not filing in a state that will bring criminal charges for filing a frivolous law suit.


If you cosigned for a car and it got repossessed voluntarily what will it do to your credit and will you owe?

Whether a repossession is done "voluntarily" by the primary or through the action of the lender, the primary borrower and the cosigner are still legally responsible for all the terms of the lending agreement. The affect the repossession has on the cosigner's credit history will depend upon the actions of the lender to recover the debt owed.

A cosigner is responsible for anything the primary party does not pay.


Is there a way for the cosigner to be removed as cosigner if primary owner defaults?

No. The purpose of requiring a co-signer is that in the case of a default by the primary borrower, the cosigner has agreed to be fully responsible for the loan. Therefore, if the borrower defaults, that's what you're there for if you're the cosigner.


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.


Does the primary signer have to be present for the cosigner to get off of a loan?

no


If primary owner and cosigner have both their names on the title and primary doesn't pay the payments can you repossess the vehicle The title says or on it.?

If there are two individuals listed on the title of a vehicle as primary and joint, they are both responsible for the payment of the loan. If the primary defaults on the payment, the joint owner is responsible for payment. If both parties default, the vehicle can be repossessed.
