First you have to find the car, then you can repo it yourself or hire a repo company to do it. Email me if you need more help. Good Luck

Cosigning for ANYONE is one big mistake. If the person you cosign for is not making the payments then the person that cosigned is responsible for all payments. I have no idea why anyone would want to do this. Unless there were stipulations in the contract you signed with the buyer, then no, they can't just up and sell the car. Take another look at your contract. Marcy

Both the co-buyer and the buyer get the credit and the blame if the loan is not paid. Co-signing on the loan is the same as getting the loan.

When someone co-signs, they are basically just agreeing to making the payments when the signer can not. * Any legal rights that a cosigner or a co-buyer(borrower) have depend upon whether or not their name is on the title to the vehicle.

User Avatar

You can if you listed yourself as the lien holder of the car at the time you transferred the title to the person making payments. If you did not do this at the time you transferred them the title, you can not legally do anything.

The co-buyer can sue the buyer in court and provide proof of payments and be repaid the amount put in.

User Avatar

You don't. If the cobuyer has possession of the vehicle and is no longer making payments, you as the buyer may take possession and either take up and make current the payments, or voluntarily surrender the vehicle. Failure to do so will result in repossession, and will adversely affect your credit.

Call the police and tell them that the co- buyer is not agreeing to the terms of use of the car when said car was bought.

User Avatar

yes. When a vehicle is repossessed by the bank it doesn't mean that you stop making payments. You are still liable for the loan.

Either party ON THE TITLE is entitled to possession, but someone will HAVE to make payments or it will be repoed.

In cash sales, payments are made instantly by the buyer/customer to the seller, where as in credit sales, the payments are generally made after a specific period as agreed upon between the buyer and the seller.

i am the buyer made payments but the co buyer has the car and has not made any payments what are may rights Very generally speaking, cobuyers (cosigners) have the same rights to the vehicle as the primary buyer, however, you may or may not have the right to take possession of the vehicle without permission of the buyer. Some states have specific laws about taking possession of a vehicle under those circumstances.

A co-buyer can move out of state with car as long as car payments are current. The co-buyer should update the new address with the lender.

Ususually in BK a house is either voluntarily surrendered, because it is not possible for the borrower(s) to keep up payments.. Or the buyer reaffirms the loan with the lender and works out a plan to repay missed payments. If your mortgage payments are current, I see no reason why the lender would seek foreclosure.

User Avatar

yes craiglist payments can go through paypal as long as you and the buyer have a paypal account.

User Avatar

More than likely no. You have a bad situation. You made the payments but the other party actually owns the vehicle. In other words you may have just bought this person a car. You need to talk to a lawyer.

User Avatar

Take the title along with the buyer to your local DMV and have the car transferred over from you to the buyer. Do not sign the title over until you have the money in your hand, and do not let the buyer have the car until you have it transferred out of your name.

User Avatar

It is possible. Some banks and lenders will allow a buyer to assume payments on an outstanding mortgage. You will need to contact the lender who currently holds the paper on the property.

If they are a co owner on the reg, they have as much right to it as you-essentially, neither one of you can keep the other from using it paid for or not.

User Avatar

LEGALLY, YES, you can go get it IF your name is on the TITLE. be ready to deal with the money part of the deal from him.

User Avatar

no, if you were the current owner of the car or the one making payments it is your responsibility to pay the balance

Don't know of any state that allows a co-buyer. There might be. For this purpose, let's use co-signer. What legal action does the co-signer have if the buyer doesn't make the car payments? In reality, the co-signer signed as a guarantee that the payment would be made and on time on the specified date. The buyer is the one buying. That's 2 different operations. The co-signer, at last known fact, cannot take the car because he is not buying it. He's paying THE LOAN since (and we're assuming here) the buyer is not paying. In my experience, if the buyer wants to be a horse patootie, he can drive that car with a smile on his face and not make payments because the co-signer IS OBLIGATED TO MAKE THE PAYMENTS. If the co-signer does not make the payments, then HIS CREDIT IS RUINED! Never co-sign, if at all possible.
