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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Can your cosigner take your car if you have been making payments on time?

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, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.

Can the primary borrower be sued by the cosigner if a loan is in default and the lender sues the cosigner?

Yes. But for now the lender has you and will get their money from you as they would the primary borrower. Cosigning is a really, really bad idea. At least for the cosigner. Everyone else seems to benefit.

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.
