Short answer, they are responsible for the debt. So, if my name was added to the auto loan only bc I was married to my ex, not to benefit by using my credit score, am I still liable? This car was repo'ed in 2003, sold for half of what was owed. In our divorce, my ex was awarded the car and to hold me free of harm from any financial obligation to that vehicle. Now, he filed for bankruptcy. Is this going to come back at me? Thanks Erin

What happens to a vehicle when the title is held by two persons who are not married and one person files bankruptcy?

Vehicles are considered secured property and the debt is not dischargeable in bankruptcy action. The situation cited would not place the vehicle in jeopardy depending upon the way the vehicle title is worded and the exemption status. In such a case it is highly unlikely the bankruptcy trustee would order the vehicle sold. That being the case any decision concerning the vehicle would belong to the lender not the bankruptcy court.

Yes, that's exactly how it works. If you'd paid for the vehicle at the time of the co-signers bakruptcy you could have kept the vehicle and improved your credit. The creditor wants you to either pay for the remainder of the note or file bankruptcy yourself. * A loan for a vehicle is considered a secured debt and is not dischargeable by the primary borrower(s) or cosigner(s) in bankruptcy action. All parties named on the loan agreement are responsible for the debt unless the SOL for the state in which the vehicle was either purchased or the debtor resides has expired.

Can you file bankruptcy on a loan for a vehicle?

Probably yes. The reason for the "probably" is that you don't file bankruptcy on specific loans... you file bankruptcy in general, and it applies to most debts (there are certain types of debts that are not dischargable in a bankruptcy). Note that if you do file bankruptcy, you may have to sell the vehicle. In bankruptcy you are often required to sell certain assets in an attempt to at least partially pay off your creditors; you're allowed to keep a certain amount of equity in a vehicle specifically, and a certain amount in "general assets" (which can be applied to a vehicle or to cash or other personal property), but if the vehicle is worth more than that, you would have to sell it.

What if the co-buyer says they are not going to make any more payments and the vehicle breaks down and need repair?

If the cobuyer is in possession of the vehicle in this scenario, then eventually the lender will put it out for repossession. Once located, the repo agent will secure the vehicle or will have it assessed for the lender to determine if they want it or not, if it is worth repossessing. Either way, if you are the primary on the account, it will negatively affect your credit. It might be better for you to contact the lender and divulge the location of the unit. As a signer on the loan, you have the right to sign a voluntary repossession and surrender the vehicle. In light of the irresponsible behavior of the cosigner, it is the right thing to do.

Sure, then the bank will come back and get the vehicle and send it to the auto auction to get as much of their money as they can. Bankruptcy only applies to unsecured loans.
