"""the co-signer do if the lender can't"""????????? New one on me... IF the debtor/signor cant/wont make the payments, the co-signor is obligated to make the payments to the lender. The co-signor can demand/beg/plead/con/coerce the signor to let co-signor have possession of the collateral just like the lender will if the payments dont get made. Does that help?

Can the cosigner sell the house if his name is not on the deed and the primary borrower has missed 3 payments?

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

The cosigner issue here is misplaced. The liability of a cosigner comes into play if the primary owner of the car cannot make payments. In the case presented, the primary borrower is doing fine. There is nothing a cosigner can do to take a car away.

Can the lending company sue the cosigner on an auto loan if borrower doesn't make payments?

Of course. That's what co-signers are agreeing to when they co-sign.


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.


If a cosigner is forced to make payments on the loan because the borrower has defaulted can the car be confiscated from the borrower by the cosigner?

No. The car is not your property, nor do you have legal authority to sieze property. It would be considered grand theft. As a co-signer, you agreed to be just as legally liable for the debt as the borrower. That's why it's a good idea to NEVER co-sign ANYTHING.


Can a lender make you pay for a loan for which you co-signed if the borrower filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and is no longer making payments?

If the borrower cannot make the payments but the cosigner does can the mortgage company still take the house?

Not if the cosigner has been making the payments on time. But often the cosigner doesn't know the loan is in default until it is past due 30 days or more, so if you have received two or three (depends on state laws) Right To Cure Default letters, the bank can foreclose.


How does it work when you buy a house for someone and they make the payments?

You should be a non-occupying co-borrower on the note, which means that you will not be living at the residence but you are vouching for the primary borrower in case he/she cant make payments. So basically, your credit is on the line. If you didnt handle the situation in that manner there are numerous other possibilities.

Many people cosign a loan for property they don't own. Many are uninformed of the consequences of cosigning.

What if you and your cosigner are unable to make the payments?

The co-signer will be completely responsible for paying the loan if the primary borrower defaults on the payments even though the co-signer will have no ownership interest in the vehicle.
