You do not have to go through a different lender. Many lending institutions have a program called "release of responsibility". They will require that you apply with them and will make sure that you are credit worthy and budget for the payment. If you do not qualify, you may want to try to re-finance with a different lender.

In most cases the co-signer will not be released since they guaranteed that the loan would be paid if the primary borrower, who was a credit risk, failed to pay. Generally, the loan must be refinanced to remove one of the makers and that requires that the primary borrower's credit has improved enough to allow them to qualify without a co-signer.

No. Y-THINK-Y * Ordinarily a cosigner would not be liable for anything other than the lending agreement. However, responsibilities incurred by all parties when a vehicle is under lease can be quite different than the purchasing a vehicle. It would be prudent for the cosigner to read the leasing contract very carefully and perhaps seek legal advice if they are unsure of the terms of the contract.

Can the cosigner for a car get off the lease and do they have rights to sell the car?

No one is released from contract unless the lender has some mitigating reason to allow it. This is usually death of a borrower. Other than that, the only legal way to "get off of a lease" is to pay the loan off. In most circumstances, but check your state law, the cosigner has the same rights and responsibilities as the primary signer. The lender is not going to referee your domestic disputes. Probably best to consult a contract lawyer. A co-signer has no legal rights to a vehicle unless his or her name is on the title. The cosigner is responsible for the entire amount of the loan if the primary borrower defaults; and cannot be removed from the lending agreement until the loan is paid in full or is refinanced without said cosigner being a participant.

Can a cosigner take possession of a car if the primary signer is not paying the payments?
