Were you in DEFAULT of any other part of the loan contract?? INS?? Illegal activity?? ect??? If not, you have equal rights to the car. You can repo it back, let them keep it(probably best) OR call a local attorney for state specific laws.

Can a cosigner take away your car even though payments are not delinquent?

No. Unless the cosigner is also a title holder they have no legal rights to the vehicle.


Can you buy another car even though is repossessed?

If you have had a car repossessed, you have not kept up with the payments. You probably still owe money on the repossessed car. In these circumstances, the fact is that you can not afford to purchase another car and would not be able to obtain the finance to do so.


You are the primary owner on a vehicle you owe 700 on the loan and the cosigner decided to take the vehicle even though they havent made any payments can they do that?

Two things to consider here: First, the cosigner is an equal owner of the vehicle regardless of whether or not any payment has been made by him. This is a matter of contract law. Second, and typically in cases where payments are not current, the cosigner/co-owner can take possession of the vehicle to protect his credit if his intention is to surrender the unit or to make payments current.


If someone has a motorcycle in their name but someone has the property and is behind on payments can the motorcycle be voluntary repossessed by the main name even though someone else has the property?

Yes it can.


Can you still owe money after your mobile home is repossessed?

Yes. The home was repossessed because you failed to make payments you contracted to make. Even though you no longer possess the home, the contract is still in force and must be satisfied unless the lender forgives it,


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.


Can you take possession of the car if the borrower stops making payments even though they have been paying for a year?

Only if your name is on the title, and only if the primary borrower defaults and the vehicle is subject to being repossessed by the lender.


Can a vehicle be reposessed for late fees on the loan?

It depends on how many times you've been late on vehicle payments. Most of the time though as long as you are making a payment of some kind on the loan your vehicle will not be repossessed.


If you are a cosigner on a vehicle loan and your name is listed on the title as OR then what rights do you have when the primary buyer defaults on payments?

You have the right to pay the loan. When a cosigner enters into a loan agreement he is promising to assume responsibility for the debt should the borrower ever default on the loan. This means simply that if the borrower stops making payments the cosigner will have to take over the payments. You may even be responsible for the full payment of the loan in the event that the borrower dies or is disabled. The cosigner, or in many times, the co-borrower is equally responsible for the debt. The debt will be reflected on the co-signors credit report and may negatively impact the person's credit should the debt become delinquent. If the primary borrower cannot pay the debt, the lender will pursue the co-signor just as equally as the primary borrower. In some cases the lender may only go after the cosigner. If you cosign on a auto loan and the borrower does not make his payments, you will be responsible for making the payments even though you do not have posession of the vehicle. The borrower will be driving around in a vehicle that you are paying for, and it can be a nightmare to extract yourself from this situation. You will not only be responsible for any arrears of the loan; you will also be responsible for any late fees, additional interest, and collection fees.


You lost your job and you want to return your car but somebody co-sign for it. what will you do?

A voluntary surrender is the honorable action if you have lost your ability to pay your note. You might want to contact the cosigner and discuss other options before doing this though. Any repossession or delinquency on the loan will adversely affect the cosigner's credit rating same as yours, the primary.


Can you get your engine back out of a truck after it has been repossessed?

NOT. Good try though. LOL


After you buy a repossessed car does it stay marked as repossessed as long as it is driven even though it is paid off?

The car isn't damaged, the debtor's credit rating is. There is no permanent record of the car as a repossessed vehicle like there is for a salvaged title.
